Product Description

Features & Specifications




JL Audio 12W7AE-3 12″ 1000 Watt 3 Ohm Subwoofer – #92115

The 12W7AE-3 brings serious performance to the table by combining the breakthrough of the long-excursion W7 design with a large 12-inch bore. It has been called “addictive,” “seductive” and “the new subwoofer reference”, by some of the world’s toughest reviewers, and has earned these accolades by delivering nearly limitless dynamics, exceptional balance and world-class sound quality.

This potent driver is best used with amplifier power in the 400W – 1000W range and is optimized to operate in a 1.375 cu. ft. (38.9 l) sealed enclosure, or a 1.75 cu. ft. (49.6 l) ported enclosure. Detailed enclosure recommendations can be found in the “Specifications” tab.

W7AE (Anniversary Edition) Subwoofers celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the launch of the W7 subwoofers. Functionally, they are identical to the original W7’s, but are they distinguished by the following cosmetic differences:

  • Satin-Black Powdercoated Baskets
  • Bright Anodized Surround Clamp Ring
  • Anniversary Edition Cone Badge
  • Anniversary Edition Terminal Label

Celebrating 10 years of unrivaled bass performance

Ten years ago, JL Audio redefined low-frequency reproduction with their masterful, designed-from-scratch W7 subs. Now, the Anniversary Edition W7 Series 12W7AE-3 12″ subwoofer features the latest refinements to this groundbreaking design, highlighted by a satin-black frame, silvery anodized trim ring, and special anniversary logo.

Group shot

Profound bass for the music-lover

Each W7 sub is built to meticulous standards at JL Audio’s factory in Miramar, Florida. JL Audio put 30+ years of sonic expertise into their legendary W7 subwoofers, so you can expect smooth, powerful bass that enhances your favorite music.

Innovative design for impressive performance

Six patented technologies help this W7 sub deliver unmatched performance:

W-Cone 12W7AE-3W-Cone™: a dish-shaped outer cone is supported by a second W-shaped inner cone attached to the sub’s voice coil structure. This design creates a super-rigid, lightweight cone that responds rapidly for accurate bass without unwanted coloration.

OverRoll surround 12W7AE-3OverRoll™: an innovative mounting method lets the surround wrap around the outside of the mounting flange. This method allows for more useable cone area than conventional surrounds, so this sub moves more air for deeper lows.

Floating Cone Attach MethodFloating Cone Attach Method (FCAM™): precision engineering aligns the voice coil, and woofer cone for incredibly linear woofer movement, which means you’ll hear exceptionally accurate bass.

Spider attachment 12W7AE-3Plateau-reinforced spider attachment: a collar on the voice coil eases stress on the spider for extended excursion and improved reliability.

Elevated frame cooling and pole pieceElevated frame cooling and cross-drilled pole-piece: cone movement pumps air through vents in the frame and machined holes in the pole piece. Your voice coils stay cooler, even when you’re pushing your system.
