JL Audio 12W3v3-2 W3v3 Series 12″ 2-ohm Subwoofer – #92153
JL Audio 12W3v3-2 W3v3 Series 13.5″ 4-ohm subwoofer.It’s Easily the best selling subwoofer driver, next to the W6v3, the JL Audio W3v3 provides phenomenal performance at moderate power levels with superb sound quality. The W3 series is in its 3rd iteration, embodying the series’ pursuit for providing outstanding output and world-class sound quality. This is accomplished by utilizing a whole suite of advanced technologies originally developed for JL Audio’s flagship W7. An Elevated Frame Cooling design helps in delivering enhanced power handling and sound quality. The DMA-optimized, long linear excursion capability minimizes distortion and increases output, while multiple patented technologies enhance performance and reliability. Such advances make the v3’s the best sounding, most reliable W3’s yet.
Although the W3v3 Subwoofer can be driven with as little as 150 Watts, for best audio performance it is recommended to run an amplifier capable of between 400 – 600 Watts of continuous power per driver, like the JL Audio XD1000/1v2 or JL Audio JX1000/1D. In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosure, needing only 1.50 cubic feet of air space in a sealed box and 2.25 cubic feet in a ported/vented enclosure.
Like many other high quality JL Audio products, all W3v3 subwoofers are built in JL Audio’s Miramar, Florida factory, with extreme precision and top-notch build quality. Its this attention to detail that delivers the JL Audio quality and performance we have all become accustomed to.
JL Audio Patented Cooling Technology
JL Audio’s patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air into the heart of the subwoofer in ways no other manufacture’s driver can. Purpose-engineered slots located directly above the top-plate stream air to the voice coil. In addition, the upper surface of the top-plate is directly exposed to this air flow, whereas on a conventional design it is isolated from this flow by the lower flange of the frame.
Tight, Clean, Articulate Bass
DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W3v3 motors remain linear in motor force over an extreme range of excursion and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range.
