JL Audio 12W1v3-2 12" 300 Watt 2 Ohm Subwoofer - #92082

Product Descriptions

JL Audio 12W1v3-2 12" 300 Watt 2 Ohm Subwoofer - #92082

The 12W1v3-2 is a lightweight 12-inch driver with excellent performance capabilities at moderate power levels. It features moderate mounting depth with no pole-vent, so the rear of the motor structure can be placed directly against an enclosure boundary. Excellent excursion capability and linearity allow it to reproduce sub-bass with shocking extension and quality. Several of JL Audio's proprietary technologies enhance its performance and reliability. The is best used with amplifier power in the 75W - 300W range and is optimized to operate in a compact 1.10 cu. ft. (31.5 l) sealed enclosure.

Legendary JL Audio engineering

The affordable W1v3 subwoofer incorporates patented features developed by JL Audio for their legendary W7 subs. Special venting keeps the W1v3 sub running cool for trouble-free performance, while extensive research in cone bonding and motor assembly construction keeps its cone movement linear for precise, dependable output. The cone interlocks with the dust cap for superior rigidity, and a sophisticated suspension system keeps internal parts aligned properly when you're jamming hard.

Choose your enclosure

The 12W1v3-2 12" subwoofer works in ported or sealed enclosures, enabling you to choose the type of bass you want. It features a polypropylene cone with an embossed JL Audio logo for a look that stands out as much as the sound. The removable, customizable trim ring lets you put a personal touch on your system, and makes optional grille installation a snap. This punchy W1v3 sub works well with moderate power, delivering impressive performance without costing a fortune.

12W1v3-2 Features

Woofer: The JL Audio W1v3-2 subwoofer features an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone with an embossed metallic JL Audio logo and a rubber surround for added durability, woofer excursion and bass response.

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the W1v3-2 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. '

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.

Vented Reinforcement Collar: The Vented Reinforcement Collar (VRC) is a composite structure that addresses two issues related to reliability:

  • Stress Relief: By reinforcing the critical junction between the cone, voice coil and spider, the VRC reduces failures due to glue breakdown or material weakness. It does this by increasing adhesive contact area and providing stress relief to the spider material at excursion extremes.
  • Air Flow: The VRC also features slots that facilitate air flow directly onto the voice coil windings, thus reducing thermal compression effects and enhancing reliability.

Insert Molded Suspension/Coil/Terminal Sub-Assembly: The W1v3-2 features a unique spider, coil and terminal subassembly, assembled prior to installation in the speaker frame for optimum alignment and glue-joint integrity. This type of assembly ensures precise lead wire length, lead wire entry and exit angles, and coil/spider alignment.

Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame design of the W1v3-2 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.

Customizable Trim Ring: The woofer comes with 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 grille mesh insert specifically designed to fit into the inner diameter of the trim ring (item number 136SGR1231, sold separately).

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Enclosure: JL Audio recommends an optimum sealed enclosure volume for the 12W1v3-2 of 1.152 ft³ (1.1 ft³ net, plus the sub's 0.052 ft³ displacement), resulting in a -3dB point of 38.99 Hz.

Ported Enclosure: JL Audio recommends an optimum ported enclosure volume for the 12W1v3-2 of 1.652 ft³ (1.6 ft³ net, plus the sub's 0.052 ft³ displacement). The recommended slot port is 1-1/2" (wide) x 14" (tall) x 30-3/4" (long), resulting in a tuning frequency of 31.79 Hz and a -3dB point of 31 Hz.
