That sub is the best gem in your setup.

P.S> Would like to see a pair of these with a new amp in the future
the 60th Anniversary Edition has a Golden JBL dustcap and a few design changes to the basket. The core design (differential drive) is unchanged, since it does wonders with that.

Thank you, once again. I'm not too far from your office, anytime for a listen will do. I'll drive down.

The luccents didnt need advertisements. Knowing the speed with which I have been changing my equipment, 2 people had ALREADY blocked them even before they were installed in my car!
That explains why the Luccent bass makers didn't figure on the classifieds.

Right doc?
Yep. One is in transit and the other with the owner on it's way to East India.

Dang!
I actually made this out with the teaser pic. But, with JBL not being an "EsshQue" brand on here, I thought it would be something else.

Here's a health tip:
When you're lifting something heavy from the ground, bend your knees and the thigh muscles to lift it.
Its called "dead lifting".
Bending your upper body to lift a heavy object stresses the lower back. Everyone knows how dangerous it is.

That's Sweet man. Looks really nice. Just waiting what all next is in line to compliment this woofer?
What about Comps?? Are you gonna keep the same Lucci's or planning to buy a new stuff (like Rainbow)?

i had the W15GTI mk2 - also the 60th anniversary edition, i think you will really enjoy this subwoofer. Mine to me was the best sounding subwoofer ive ever heard but the problem for me was that in my current car it was too heavy (30 kilo's installed in the enclosure)

but congratulations on a wonderful purchase and i hope that you enjoy it

HMMMMMM ... maybe a BPX2200.1 monoblock.

haha just kidding but i was reading Franks thread at DIYMA and i understand his concerns about power at the impedance levels of the subwoofer and eventhough the genesis is a monster amplifier you do get some amplifiers that provide as much quality with a bit more power

Hey Frank

Congrats on the GTI! This is one of the few subs that I'm actually keen to listen to. Have read that they sound insane in IB...also allows one to show off the motor & basket

Yup boy. Dual 6 ohms. He's probably going to run it at 3 ohms.
