Today I started to build a fiberglass speaker box for my 12's. Here is what I've done so far but it is only 1:45 so I'll probably have time to put the fabric over it still. I'll keep you guys updated with pics and give a how to later. Click to enlarge!
From that to this!
But the only way you could run W3V3's off an XX Zeus, would be if you got 8ohm subs. Then your final ohm would be 4. Which would put you right at the 300W RMS a piece. Cause if you run it down to 2 ohm, you'd be pushing 550W RMS to each, thats almost double the recommended, and you'd probably destory those subs pretty quick. And that XX Colossus is WAY too much power for 2 JL 12W3V3, regardless of which model.
Cause if you are hell bent on getting a Hifonics amp for your JL subs. I would probably go with a Brutus 1206D and just be very careful with your gain settings and the volume knob...lol...Cause then you'd only be putting 450W RMS each to them, which is only 150W over the recommended, instead of double.
P.S. Custom FG Box looks like it's started on a good path. Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming too.
Ya Hifonics is pretty accurate with their numbers. And JL can usually handle beyond their recommended RMS if you do it wisely and aren't trying to blast the system 24/7.
I only have 2 - 12W1V2's in my 6 right now. And they are recommended only 125W, but I've been pushing 250W to each with no problems or signs of wear, and I have the occasional time when I like to show off
