I don't know if this is the right place to post, but I'll try anyway:


I am about to build a new sub to have in my CAR and I can get good prices on drivers from JL Audios w3v3-series, but also on an Audiopulse Epic 10". Which is better in a sedan, but also for further usage? They will be used in a sealed box and I am biased between these two choice.


With JL I can get 10w3v3, 12w3v3 and 13 w3v3.


Which driver would you choose, which is better?

Because he is asking about drivers and this thread hasn't been moved yet I will say that I own a JL 10w3v2 in a pro/power? wedge in my sedan and it sounds really good. Because it's only a 10" it deffinately needs a little push on the lower end of the frequency by a couple dBs. I will tell you that whichever you choose I highly recommend getting a 12" Ultimately it will be a better all around sub having few cons over a 10" and many more pros.


Now as far as Audiopulse/TC-sounds, I have never heard one of their subs personally, but from reading all the positive feedback, outstanding reviews, great industry track record, and amazingly sexy drivers I was swayed enough to purchase a 12" Axe sight unseen and unheard for a home theater sub build I've started. I have not received it or completed the sealed box yet, but I know the specs are extremely similar to a TC-3000 (just without the Ti cone) which have received rave reviews and critical acclaim. My only fear is I will not be able to listen to it's full potential without buying a shack in Montana



Anyway unless you go for the 13" version of the JL w3V3 I would really be leaning toward the Epic 12" as long as you've got the amp to power them.

In this case the choice is easy AudioPulse.


At the top end the choice is still AudioPulse(W7 VS LMS-Ultra).

Went with Audiopulse 10" Epic. I have 650 good watts to run it on. I don't much SPL so a 10" will do (I hope)... Mean looking driver on the photos at least. I will be using a small sealed enclosure. 0.53 ft3...

Nice to see you back Arthur....


Had a nice vacation I hope....

Thank you


Well I switched my efforts to helicopters and large scale RC.
I have purchased five Hirobo helis and a good few G's of parts for my RC's.


I will be back this summer with a MEGA project featuring EIGHT LMS-Ultra 18" drivers ,I am looking to buy four Crown iTech8000 power amps to power these brutes. This will be the Ultimate sealed project,two drivers per box. I have purchased a dolly to move larger cabinets,so the moving ~400lbs will not pose a great deal.

Hmmmm I don't recall you getting your hands on 8 18" LMS's, but I look forward to your results my friend.


those counter rotational Hirobo's are pretty sweet... Hope your having fun with them...

i been told that Powersoft amplifier is better than I-Tech both for performance and reliability. the price seems to be comparable.


i was also told that in I-Tech the DSP cannot be bypassed while in Powersoft it can.
