Pros:great sound, excellent clarity, very durable

Cons:somewhat expensive, not meant for hard bass.

The Bottom Line: If you are looking for high quality sound and nothing more, these are excellent speakers that definitely won't let you down.


I have been a HUGE car audio fanatic for the last ten years. Ever since I was capable of driving, I have had a desire to blast my speakers at levels that weren’t fit for anyone’s ears. This has led to thousands of dollars in purchases, countless maxed out credit cards, and eventually led to a huge interest in the car customization business in general.

Over the last ten years, I have done countless installs on my own vehicles, my friends’ vehicles, and customer vehicles after I started up my own customization business in 2000, which eventually would be put out of business, by the economy crushing September 11th. Porous

Since the time September 11th, I have still maintained a great deal of side business, including work done for a local shop on a need basis. I now perform the majority of my installations as more of a hobbyist than for income. This affords me the opportunity to try out the latest equipment and improve the car customization scene within the state of Alaska.

Sound Quality
The 10" variation of the JL Audio 10W6V2 is pretty much the same as the 12" version, but it is DEFINITELY quite a bit cheaper. The sound itself is a very smooth sound throughout the major range that would be used for regular bass. This speaker is built for high quality, luxury style sound as opposed to hard pounding bass. Rather than going for overall power, the speaker itself is meant to create crisp, quality bass. This is speaker is truly meant for the daily driver that just wants a more quality everyday sound with the ability to bump it up a bit for some hard hitting bass when it is needed.

Durability
One of the main reasons for purchasing a JL Audio sub is for the durability. These speakers seem to last forever, especially if you are using them in the manner that they are intended. If you are attempting to use them for hard pounding bass competition, you are going to lose, AND you could possibly blow out your subs over time. It is definitely in your best interest with this sub to just use it for quality and clarity of bass. If you use it as it was meant to be used, it could last you as long as your vehicle does quite easily.

Appearance
These subs definitely aren't the most attractive on the market. They are very standard if nothing else. Generally when I would place these in a vehicle, they would request that custom air brushing be done on them to give them a better look. There are also aluminum sub grilles that can be added to the face of the subs in order to make them look more attractive. You are definitely buying these speakers for performance, not for looks.
