Wetsounds Revo 12 XXX + Amp

Anyone have any experience with the Revo12-XXX?  How does it compare to the JL 12w7?  What amp would you recommend?

Amp, Syn-DX2.3HP or SDX2500

Compare, they are both 12", both work very well in a ported enclosure. Similar RMS range. In the marine environment, the XXX has the construction advantage, but the foam surround on the W7 should last a number of years with minimal sun exposure.

It's not a direct bit of feedback, but I have some experience with the W6 instead of the W7.  Specifically the JL 12w6v3 and it's construction and quality.  I've built three ported and 1 sealed subwoofer with that driver.  The first one is still running strong after 8 years in a ported enclosure.  I sold that boat a few years ago, but still keep in touch.  I built one for a friend at the same time that's still going great.  I built a third with my new 2016.  First in a sealed enclosure that was a mistake.  Moving it to a ported enclosure was awesome!

Never any trouble with the surround or construction and every speaker spends the entire year under the helm stored outside on lifts.  All of the subs are being driven by JL HD750/1.  It's more than enough bass for us.  If I take the chains off it, the bass finds so many harmonics frequencies on the boat the whole thing from the tower to every fitting in the helm will rattle annoyingly.  Of course you're holding your hands over your ears so does it really matter?
