So you are of the opinion that a M7-12IB in a ported enclosure per spec would be less ideal as compared to a standard 12W6 setup?
If the ported enclosure is going to be radiating into the main cabin, then yeah, ill take a 12W6 ported over an M712IB all day long.

What about doing (2) M6-10W-S-GwGw-i-4 in a ported enclosure and powering with channels 5 & 6 from a Syn6 (existing amp, which would do 2 x 200W @ 4-Ohms. Not going to get it done, is it?

/edit, wait that would actually be 305W x 2 with 5&6 I believe

Or would you still go 5&6 bridged and offer 600W to something else?
IIRC, those woofers are 4 ohm each. So that would be either a 2 ohm or 8 ohm final load at the amp. That amp will not handle a 2 ohm bridged load, so the best you will get is 150W rms to two 4 ohm 10's

Okay, thanks MLA. That's pretty disappointing. They have holes in their lineup then, IMO. Really wanted to be able to reuse the Syn6, but it's not really sufficient to power the in-boats off of 1-4, which are currently on a Syn4. Really had my heart set on JL this time around, but may either have to live with the aesthetics mis-match for the sub, or come up with another idea, which is going to be tough, because I'm a picky.

Thinking this through, am i unable to run the 12W6v3 off the Syn6 in bridged mode then because itís also 4ohm? I always get confused whether the fact itís DVC helps account for this or not. I thought the Syn6 supported 2-Ohm loads on 5/6.

You would not be able to wire the coils in parallel (2 ohm) and run it bridged. You can wire it series (8 ohm), but its only 300W to the woofer.

So, keep the amp and go with the different woofer that will present a 4 ohm load at the amp in order to safely get its 600W rms or get a new mono amp.

Thanks MLA. I re-learned it today. Kundundrem.

Not sure what to do. Really want to keep JL. No inventory.
