Which and What Size Subwoofer


Recommended Posts

In my last 2 stereo I have gone with JL W3 12" subwoofer.  In the past my best sounding system was with a Rockford Fosgate T2 10", must higher quality then the JL W3 and smaller.  I am trying to decide either a RF T2 or JL W7 10" or back with high end 12/13" T2 or W7. The last 2 systems were ported facing out under helm. The 10" T2 was facing the hull. 

Thoughts... would love to hear folks feedback. This system is going into a 2022 25LSV. Thanks. FYI I will be going with Exile Audio for tower speakers....

From an acoustical standpoint, there is almost never an advantage to going with less driver surface area. This holds true for woofers, tower speakers and in-boats.  So id go with a 12" over a 10" in whatever brand/series woofer you prefer.
