JL Audio CP212-WOV3 Subwoofer with Dual 12W0v3 BassWedge, Ported – #93283

JL Audio built the BassWedge CP212-W0v3 enclosure to make car-rattling bass for a reasonable price, without the need for a ton of power. The enclosure’s designed to match the two 12″ subs loaded into it, so you know you’ll get every ounce of performance out of this enclosure.

An Excellent Combination

The CP212-W0v3 BassWedge contains two 12″ W0v3 subwoofers that handle up to 600 watts RMS, and are loaded into a specially built slot-ported enclosure. The enclosure can be placed with the woofers firing downwards, or in typical front or rear firing applications, giving you immense bass regardless of how you place it. The enclosure is loaded and wired with two JL Audio 12W0v3 single 4-ohm subwoofers. The W0v3 offers superb excursion capability, linearity and an overall performance output that puts it right at the top of its price class. The driver features a very beefy 2.0-inch diameter voice coil, a DMA-optimized motor system and JL Audio’s patented Elevated Frame Cooling design – all purpose-engineered for enhanced power handling and reliability. What this also means, is your system will be immediately injected with the increase in output and better sound fidelity that one expects from a JL Audio product. In addition, excellent excursion capability and linearity allow it to reproduce sub-bass with striking extension and quality. When matched up with the proper power source, signal and setup the W0v3 is capable of a well rounded sound that is unparalleled by any other driver in its price range.

Solid MDF enclosure

JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, nickel-plated push terminals, and solid internal wiring.

Flexible JL Audio Power

The CP212-W0v3 Enclosure can be driven with as little as 150 Watts. However, 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 XD600/1v2 or JL Audio JX500/1D. In addition, The ultra-versatile BassWedge shape has extended sides so that it can be placed with the woofers firing out or straight down, off the floor of the vehicle. The shape works equally well in forward or rear-firing installations. This gives you plenty of options for tweaking the loading of the enclosure into your vehicle.

CP212-W0v3 Features

Overview: The JL Audio slot-ported BassWedge subwoofer enclosure is designed around two of JL Audio’s 12″ W0v3-4 (4Ω) subwoofers. Aggressive tuning delivers powerful bass without the need for a huge amplifier. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has JL AUDIO logos embroidered across the top and front. The enclosure design offers a variety of installation options: forward, rear or down firing. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on the same plane as the woofer; the port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises.

Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of nickel-plated, high current spring posts. The posts are located on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

W0v3 Woofer Features:

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 12W0v3-4 motor displays linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is a reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the 12W0v3-4 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.
  • Rear Gasket: The woofer has a rear gasket to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.
  • Long Excursion: The subwoofer has an Xmax of 11.4mm, giving you louder bass with less distortion.

JL Audio JD250/1 Monoblock Class D Subwoofer Amplifier – #98360

Designed to produce a healthy 250 watts into 2 ohms (14.4V, 1% THD), the JD250/1 amplifier is a great solution for powering subwoofers in a cost-conscious system. Our proprietary NexD™ switching technology delivers large amounts of real-world power output with excellent efficiency and ultra-low distortion.

The JD250/1’s controls are located on the input panel. while the power and speaker connections can be found along the opposite end of its extruded aluminum chassis. Signal processing features include a 12 dB / octave low-pass filter, with continuously variable frequency selection from 50-500 Hz, and a variable bass boost EQ. Dual-range, differential-balanced inputs are also on-hand, capable of accepting line-level and speaker-level signals. Automatic turn-on capability (via signal sensing or DC-offset sensing) is standard, along with a set of preamp outputs so you can easily pass signals to another amplifier.

The JD250/1 is also equipped with an onboard LED-clipping indicator ring, surrounding the input sensitivity control. This useful feature lets you easily set your amplifier’s input sensitivity, quickly and accurately, without special equipment. With the addition of an RBC-1 remote level control (sold separately), you can control the subwoofer level from the driver’s seat.

Power up the bass

JL Audio’s JX Series amplifiers were very popular with our customers, garnishing rave reviews citing their tremendous performance and value. We think their latest JD Series amps will follow in their footsteps, offering superior power and serious features for your dollar. The JD250/1 mono subwoofer amplifier will send up to 250 watts RMS to a sub, so you’ll hear and feel the bass clearly over road and engine noise. A variable low-pass filter and bass boost help you tune your sub to fit your system and sound its best. An optional wired remote control lets you turn the sub up or down from the front seat.

Connection features

The amp includes speaker-level inputs with signal-sensing amp turn-on, along with preamp inputs and outputs, so it’s ready to work in virtually any system. Differential-balanced inputs plus JL Audio’s NexD™ amp technology keep the signal sounding pure and noise-free at all times.


  • Clipping LED: Using a 50 Hz sine-wave test tone recorded at 0 dB reference level (not included), the clipping LED helps you set the gain control to the maximum unclipped level.
  • Low Pass Crossover: The 12dB/octave low-pass filter is always engaged; it cannot be bypassed. The crossover point is continuously variable from 50-500 Hz.
  • Bass Boost: The bass boost circuit is variable from 0 to +12dB. The boost is centered at 45Hz.
  • Protection Circuitry: The JD250/1’s protection circuitry automatically turns the amplifier off if thermal limits are exceeded, a short circuit is detected in the speaker wiring, or the input voltage drops below 11 volts.
  • Wired Remote: An optional RBC-1 Remote Level Control (sold separately) can be added, allowing you to adjust the amp’s output level from the front of the vehicle.


  • Input Sensitivity: rotary control; used to match your source unit’s output voltage to the input stage of the amplifier for maximum clean output; the range of the dial depends on how the Input Voltage switch is set
  • Input Voltage: 2-position switch:
    • Low: input sensitivity control (gain) range is 200mV-2V; used with the preamp output of typical aftermarket radios
    • High: input sensitivity control (gain) range is 800mV-8V; used with speaker level outputs and high output preamps
  • Low Pass Crossover Frequency: rotary control; continuously variable from 50-500 Hz
  • Turn-on Mode: 3-position switch:
    • Remote: use when the source unit has a +12 volt remote turn-on wire (preferred method)
    • Offset: the amp reads a small DC signal typical on the speaker level output of factory radios (senses the offset on the left input)
    • Signal: detects a midrange speaker level signal on the input; turns off after approximately 30 with no signal
  • Bass Boost: rotary control; continuously variable from 0 to +12 dB


  • Power: The power, ground, and remote turn-on connections are set-screw terminals:
    • Power and Ground: accept up to 4-gauge wire (8-gauge minimum recommended); the included 3mm hex key is used to tighten/loosen the set-screws
    • Remote Turn-on: accepts up to 10-gauge wire (18-gauge minimum recommended); the included 2.5mm hex key is used to tighten/loosen the set-screw
  • Subwoofer Output Terminals: The subwoofer outputs are set-screw terminals. They accept up to 8-gauge wire (16-gauge minimum recommended). There are two pair of outputs, internally wired in parallel, making it easy to connect two subwoofers. The included 2.5mm hex key is used to tighten/loosen the set-screws.
  • Signal Inputs: The stereo RCA input jacks accept either preamp or speaker level signals. When connecting speaker level signals, a speaker wire to RCA adapter is useful. The left and right channels are internally summed to mono.
  • Preamp Outputs: The stereo RCA preamp outputs pass the signal connected to the RCA inputs, so another amplifier can be added easily. The output is not affected by the JD250/1’s gain, crossover, or bass boost controls. The preamp output signal is buffered to prevent noise.

JL Audio RBC-1 Car Audio Bass Remote Control 98015

The JL Audio RBC-1, is a “Bass Boost” switch that activates a +6dB boost centered at 48 Hz.

JL Audio amplifiers feature bass-boost circuitry to help you adjust low-frequency impact in your vehicle. The RBC-1 wired remote bass control works with all of JL Audio’s A-Series, G-Series, RD Series, mono JX-Series, and most Slash v2 amps. You can mount the RBC-1 controller in the front of your vehicle and dial in the amount of bass you want from the driver’s seat — mounting instructions, hardware, and a 18′ cable are included.

Connect the JL Audio RBC-1 to your amp, and it converts the amp’s selectable bass boost (0 or 6 dB) to a variable boost (0 to 12 dB). With the Slash v2 amps, the RBC-1 takes the place of the amp’s boost knob, allowing you to adjust your bass boost from 0 to 15 dB. With RD Series and JX-Series mono amps, the RBC-1 controls the amp’s subwoofer level, from full mute to full volume.

The RBC-1 remotely controls the Bass Level of the following JL Audio amplifiers

JX-Series: JX250/1, JX500/1, JX500/1D, JX1000/1D
HX-Series: HX300/1 in Low Pass Mode (Note: M-RBC-1 is also available)
MHX-Series: MHX300/1 in Low Pass Mode (Note: M-RBC-1 is also available)

When the JL Audio RBC-1 is connected to the above amplifiers, the on-board “Boost” control of the amplifier is defeated and the RBC-1 becomes the active controller.

The RBC-1 kit includes the rotary control with a black ABS knob, mounting hardware and one 18 ft. (5.5 m) cable.
