The bigger the woofer the deeper the bass reproduction but what you gain in bass you loose in performance. This is not the case for the JL Audio 13W3v3-2 subwoofer. This woofer is rated 600W RMS and features a single 2 ohm voice coil, the woofer will not only provide deeper bass but will do so with unmatched quality, efficiency, and performance. The 13W3v3-2 is setting the standard that a big woofer can sound great and perform great without losing any quality. If you are ready to have a true high-end experience then look no further than this JL Audio W3 series subwoofer.
JL Audio is all about performance and quality. They manufacture products to meet extremely high standards and anything less than those standards is not good enough to carry the JL Audio name. The W3v3 subwoofer is one of the cleanest, most efficient, and best sounding subwoofers in its class. This series is available in a 6.5”, 8”, 10”, 12”, and 13.5” size woofer that can pretty much fit any vehicle size. The W3v3 features a DM Optimized Motor System that provides constant and strong linear excursion that result in reduced distortion and higher bass reproduction. These woofers also feature Elevated Frame Cooling technology that delivers cool air directly to the voice coil of the woofer. This increases power handling and sound quality. The W3v3 series subwoofers offer many more patented technologies that truly make this series stand out above the rest. If you are struggling on a decision, the decision if simple JL Audio, it will never disappoint.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.
Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.
Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.
Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".
Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.
Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

I purchased one of these for my truck after getting rid of my 10w6v2. I built a sealed enclosure to the exact specs on JL's website and I am feeding this sub 400w rms per JL's recommendation. Not only does this sub destroy my old 10w6v2 in SPL, but the SQ on this sub is nearly as good as well. I plan on building a ported box for it soon to get that extra 3db out of it. Bought this from Sonic and I could not be happier.

I know two people that have 3 of these in ported enclosures, one has a blow through in a F150 and it is insane to even be in or around his truck with it turned up, then the other guy has them in a brand new explorer and they are just as loud, I would have to say with these being JL's mid level 13's, they are a greta product, they dont lack in performance one bit. But they take some air space for good sound out of them.
