Let me tell you this.... It is absolutely the single highest output sub for the size that has ever been built by any manufacturer PERIOD. You must remember, subwoofer design has remained mostly unchanged for more than 60 years. I am not going to sit here and go through all the things that they have done differently than other manufacturers but I will sum it up in one sentence.
The W7 has what I believe to be 13 entirely new patents for that single speaker. 13!! Remember I said that subwoofer design is unchanged over the last 60 years? Can you imagine what would have to be done to change 13 different aspects of subwoofer design?
I have heard the speaker and yes it is expensive but remember this fact. A single 12W7 will produce more bass and move more air than 3 12W6's! That was 3 subs! It's cone is so wide and deep a 12W6 will actually drop down into the cone of the W7.
It is going to be almost unfair the amount off SPL "ass" this speaker is going to kick in the upcomming years. For SPL there will be none better. I am sure of it.
Until then, I have 3 JL 10W3D6's in a custom sealed enlosure that I am sure some of you have seen. Around August, I will have the box for sale if anyone is interested.
