    I was on JL Audio's website and didn't even realize they made a TW3. Has anyone heard these as to something I can compare them to? I have had in the past (2) w3v2's, (2) w3v3's, (1) 13W7, (2) 12W6v2's, and (2) 12" Type-R's.

    I will most likely get (2) 13tw5's but was a little curious about these when I stumbled upon them.

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    They are brand new just about to hit the market. But from what I read and heard they are supposed to have the sq of the W3's which I love just in a smaller chassis/shallow mount.

    Looks like I will be figuring out how to put a sub in my truck. The JBL leaves a lot of be desired.

    Nice. I was looking at the 13tw5 but the $$$ was scaring me off. Ill be interested to see some reviews.

    I'm in the same boat there. Was thinking buying 1 and waiting awhile then adding a second.. But if these aren't too bad might end up going this route.

    I really liked my JL's in the past. I actually just had my w6's stolen out of my roommate's truck last Thursday. :( Hopefully insurance will do something if anything at all for them though I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Anyways back on track -
    I just read on JL Audio's facebook page that the 10" TW3 is comparable to a 10w6v2. That's pretty impressive in my mind.

    Scratch that last one, just mixed reviews everywhere. Somewhere else JL states the TW5v2 will be like the w6v2 and the tw3 will be like the w3v3. Who knows until it's released.
