JL Audio 13TW or MTX shallows

was looking into some shallow mount subs and came across these two. Was really leaning towards the JL's but it says on the website that its nominal impedence was 3 ohm? i was planning on using my alpine mrd 1005 amp too power either two jl;s or two mtx's what should i pick? The amp is good for 600watts @4ohms by 1 channel? any advice

I've heard most shallow subs are weak.

ive heard good things about the JL shallow mounts. They can be placed almost anywhere, including behind the rear seat

The TW5's are incredible. They are redoing the industry. I (as well as many other PRO installers) are putting subs in places, that were not possible before. They sound amazing both in output and in SQ.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I would love to put one of the JL TW's in my truck, but I'm now willing to fork out $550 for one!
