I had three in my first car.

First were 3 JL12w12 and I hit 139db with 600watts with an 1" thick rubber wall behind the back seat that I didn't know about.

Swapped them out for the W6's but kept the Infinity (under powered) Fultron 3-way Cross-over..

Somehow I, Blew one and blew the wires off the back of the cone on one,
And the Last one by itself sounded better alone with the 600watts.

This pic might be of the JL12w12's yes, w12's they made them. No one believed me I had to show them the little spec book.

The nice thing is, the W6's will allow you to get good tight accurate Bass if you don't want it just for SPL. I would assume you have a Head unit that has adjustable Sub levels. But Also, if you want to crank it up for SPL, it will definitley get loud. I would reccommend running more power than 600W for both though. Those need about 400w-500w running to them to hit thier potential.

I have 2 12" Boston G5 subs right now and I think they could definitley sound better with a little more power going to them, but they are very tight and Accurate, which is what I like since I listen to mostly Electronic and Rock, not much Rap. It still gives me a headache when I crank it up though.

Good luck with your setup!
