JL Audio 12W6v3-D4 W6v3 12″ 600 Watt 4 Ohm Subwoofer Driver– #92141

12W6v3-D4 W6v3 12-inch Subwoofer (600 W, dual 4 Ω voice coils)

If you are seeking intensely powerful sub-bass that compromises nothing in terms of sound quality, the 12W6v3 is your ultimate ally. This highly advanced Subwoofer offers several technologies shared with the flagship W7AE subwoofers to provide powerful advantages in motor linearity and suspension behavior. These combine with a very efficient cooling circuit to deliver reduced distortion and outstanding dynamic balance.

The 12W6v3 is best used with amplifier power in the 200W – 600W range and is optimized to operate in a sealed enclosure with only 1.0 cu. ft. (28.3 l) of air space, or a 1.3 cu. ft (36.8 l) ported enclosure. Greater excursion capability and higher power handling distinguish it from our 12W3v3 12-inch Subwoofer, allowing for higher output. Dual 4 Ω voice coils permit deploying the W6v3 as a 2 Ω or 8 Ω driver.

Bass that means business

JL Audio’s celebrated W6v3 subwoofers deliver knockout low end with incredible accuracy. The 12W6v3-D4 12″ subwoofer uses a tough, mineral-filled polypropylene cone that offers incredible strength without the added bulk that can slow woofer response. JL Audio conducted extensive research to develop a motor structure that operates efficiently and precisely, so this sub can deliver powerful, reliable bass while handling up to 600 watts RMS. Exclusive cone-bonding assemblies, advanced cooling systems, and a highly stable spider attachment enhance reliability and promote long performance life.

Precision-crafted low end

The sub’s solid cast-alloy basket allows your W6v3 sub to handle big-time power without any distortion-causing flexing. A sophisticated suspension system promotes linear cone movement for greater accuracy. The simple terminal jumper wiring system allows you to set the subwoofer’s impedance to draw maximum power from your amplifier, or to design a multi-sub setup.

Get the sound and look you want

The elegant JL Audio medallion on the front shows the competition you mean business. Go for a special look with the removable black trim ring, which can be painted to match your installation theme. The 12W6v3-D4 works best in a compact enclosure, so you can get great bass in some tight places.

12W6v3-D4 Features

Dual Voice Coils: Due to the 12W6v3-D4’s dual 4 ohm voice coils, the subwoofer can be configured as a 2-ohm (voice coils wired in parallel) or 8-ohm (voice coils wired in series) driver. The included jumper wires allow easy adjustment from one configuration to the other (the factory jumper position is 2-ohm).

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 12W6v3-D4 motor remains linear over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.

Pole-Vent Airflow Control (PVAC): The bullet-shaped structure inside the pole-vent directs airflow and increases air velocity to effectively reduce voice coil temperature, leading to improved fidelity and reliability.

Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio’s patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.

Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame design of the 12W6v3-D4 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.

Customizable Trim Ring: The woofer has a removable ring made of black ABS plastic which can be painted to match the installation theme and create a personalized look. You can purchase an optional mesh grille insert specifically designed to fit into the inner diameter of the trim ring (item number 136SGR126, sold separately).

Engineered Lead Wire System: JL Audio’s engineered flying lead-wires have carefully engineered entry and exit support structures molded into the terminals and the voice coil collar and are jacketed to further reduce the likelihood of shorting and fatigue. The result is predictable high-excursion lead-wire behavior with long term reliability, and none of the compromises inherent to a woven-in lead wire system (when attached or woven into the spider material, lead-wires can alter the spider’s motion, leading to asymmetrical spider behavior).

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Enclosure: JL Audio recommends a sealed box size of 1.105 ft³ (1.0 ft³ net, plus the sub’s 0.105 ft³ displacement). A diagram is provided in the owner’s manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 15″ W x 15″ H x 12″ D, assuming 3/4″ thick material. (If you are using 5/8″ thick materials, subtract 1/4″ from each dimension.)

Ported Enclosure: The ported box size JL Audio recommends is 1.405 ft³ (1.3 ft³ net, plus the sub’s 0.105 ft³ displacement). The recommended slot port is 12-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ x 31-5/8″, resulting in a tuning frequency of 33 Hz and a -3dB point of 31 Hz.
