JL Audio W3v3 Series Subwoofer Driver
JL Audio W3v3 Series Subwoofer Driver

Easily the best selling subwoofer driver, next to the W6v3, the JL Audio W3v3 provides phenomenal performance at moderate power levels with superb sound quality. The W3 series is in its 3rd iteration, embodying the series' pursuit for providing outstanding output and world-class sound quality. This is accomplished by utilizing a whole suite of advanced technologies originally developed for JL Audio's flagship W7. An Elevated Frame Cooling design helps in delivering enhanced power handling and sound quality. The DMA-optimized, long linear excursion capability minimizes distortion and increases output, while multiple patented technologies enhance performance and reliability. Such advances make the v3's the best sounding, most reliable W3's yet.

Although the W3v3 Subwoofer can be driven with as little as 50 Watts, for best audio performance it is recommended to run an amplifier capable of between 100 - 150 Watts of continuous power per driver, like the JL Audio JX360/2 (per channel, NOT bridged). In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosure, needing only 0.15 cubic feet of air space in a sealed box and 0.25 cubic feet in a ported/vented enclosure. (Specific dimensions and figures can be found in the user manual, linked further below.)

Like many other high quality JL Audio products, all W3v3 subwoofers are built in JL Audio's Miramar, Florida factory, with extreme precision and top-notch build quality. Its this attention to detail that delivers the JL Audio quality and performance we have all become accustomed to.

JL Audio Patented Cooling Technology

JL Audio Patented Cooling Technology

JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air into the heart of the subwoofer in ways no other manufacture's driver can. Purpose-engineered slots located directly above the top-plate stream air to the voice coil. In addition, the upper surface of the top-plate is directly exposed to this air flow, whereas on a conventional design it is isolated from this flow by the lower flange of the frame. This technology not only increases thermal power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression. In plain English, this driver keeps itself cool so you can play your system longer, safer and without having to worry about frying the motor.

Extraordinary Linearity and Control

Tight, Clean, Articulate Bass

DMA is JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W3v3 motors remain linear in motor force over an extreme range of excursion and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass. Its main catalyst is the driver's Ultra-long Voice Coil, that allows extreme linear excursion, phenomenal power handling and control, control, control.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
W3v3 (JL Audio)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
6.5"
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
150 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Single
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
32 - 300 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
80.49 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
8.89 mm
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

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.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Black
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Mineral-Filled Polypropylene
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR)
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
No

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

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.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.15 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.25 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
4.25"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
5.50"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

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.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
41.80 Hz
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
5.13 liters
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
0.508
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.
0.533
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
3.476 ohms
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.

Jl audio 6w3v3-4

April 15, 2012

I would recommend this sub to someone who wants that little extra bit of bass without over doing it. They work great for metal and rock and would pair up great with a bigger sub to get some of the higher ranged tones.

Make your box to these specs for Awesomeness...

June 9, 2014

Had one of these from a prior project. Using 1/2" MDF Made a box 7 x 14 x 13 (.5417 cu ft) w/ a Precision 2" Flared Port kit cut-down to 10" total assembled length (Tune is about 36-37 Hz) firing out the side. Before closing the box... I put rubber Self-Adhesive Roof-flashing (avail at HDepot, Lowes) on all sides except (top-firing) baffle, be sure to use a roller to push-out any and all air pockets. Staple 1 layer of High-Loft Quilt Batting on all sides except baffle (avail at JOANN's Fabrics). On baffle I also glued some 1" x 6" strips in the middle of the open spaces to either side of the centered woofer cutout hole on the baffle to add rigidity. You'll need 6 Bar Clamps, and at least 2 90 degree clamps. I just used Tite Bond II Wood Glue. The only screws are to mount the sub, and on the Banana plugs Terminal plate I put on. In my ofc room I was underwhelmed and at low-to-mid 20Hz's I could hear a bit of port noise running off a 50 Wattt plate amp. But OH MAN when I put it in her XTERRA using 140 Watts Bridged at 4 Ohms... DAYUM!! I shocked the heck outta myself. The output was almost on par with the Infinity Ref 860W in 1.02 cu ft I had in their before she wanted a smaller setup. This lil booger really impressed me even more in this particular setup. The specs JL gives for the .25 cu ft slot-ported box suck because it has WAY too much port noise with those specs.

Bought 4 of the them to but under my back seat in my 2009 Ford F-150 Super Crew Cab. I made a custom box to fit. The hit hard and sound great. Small enough not to have to change any sitting.
Had them shipped to a location in the US and then shipped to me in the Middle East. Nothing else around like it.

Nice Bump for my MoTo!

March 26, 2010

Put one of these in a sealed, molded, form-fitting fiberclass enclosure 0.20 - 0.25 cu. ft. I hand-made to fit in the trunk of my MoTo. It's being powered by 2 rear channels of Eclipse EA4200 amp with those 2 channels set to Mono and LPF. (140 watts @ 4 Ohms),

Front channels of amp are full-range powering 2 4" Polk Audio db401's in the fairing.

I've been steadily getting astonished looks and comments about how good my system sounds, and people are shocked it's coming from my moto!

Bought this little sub cause space was a big issue, did a lot of research and made my mind up on getting this one. I'm powering it with the NVX MVPA1 turned down in a custom ported box and friends think I have a 12" in my truck and are blown away with my setup. Very pleased and made in the U.S.A.

Bass Monster!

February 21, 2010

I bought one from Sonic and built the recommended sealed enclosure. This thing slams for it's size, it's comparable, if not better than some 8" subs. I'm running it on 170 watts rms and it sounds incredibly clean. It blends with my RF Power series coaxials nicely. You won't be disappointed with this sub if your looking for tight and accurate sound. Don't forget to buy the grille too!

I purchased a speaker to replace a blown factory sub. I purchased one that was too deep for my factory enclosure. My sales rep was a big help in finding a speaker that fit into my shallow factory enclosure. Took the original purchase back with no questions asked and got the new one out right away. Back to enjoying some bass to go along with the treble!

Little beast behind the seat.

October 24, 2012

This sub packs a punch, and if set up right inside a well constructed box, outperforms the cheaper, 8" and 10" that I've heard. Looks amazing reversed as well. But the real winner on this amp is the size, for a sealed enclosure it only requires .15cf! You could put this thing under your kids bed and give him nightmares, 'cause this sub is a monster!

Perfect for small cars with little to no room like my MR2 Rev.2, MX-5 etc.

Great for precision and filling out the bottom end of your frequencies, but can't compete with the larger, properly installed and powered 8 and 10" subs but still a stunner!

Wow... can take a beating!

January 12, 2011

Ok, so powering this sub together with the 2 4" drivers was just a lil too much for my MoTo's electrical system. So I decided to quickly build a Ported box to manufacturer specs. Figured I'd use this in my Ford SportTrac for those time when I need to remove my Alpine Type-R 12" Enclosure I usually have seat-belted in behind the drivers seat.

Powering this 4-Ohm sub with my Pioneer GM-D8500M equates to a possible 300 Watts RMS. I didn't have to adjust my gains at all. It sounds great! Obviously a significant drop in output from having a Type-R 12" right behind me... but I'll bet you with all the windows down you could still piss-off a lotta folks!

I slid the little enclosure underneath the passenger rear seat no problem.

The amount of output you're getting... from such a small device... it's totally UNREAL though!

Has anyone ever mounted them in the doors of their vehicle? And if so how do they sound?

I was wondering if you can use this as a free air sub for the rear deck of a car?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2015
Best Answer: Highly recommended by jl to use .15 ft3 plus .03 displacement for sub basket.trust me jl subs are great ported,i just prefer them sealed.tight bass eq'ed and clean signal.been playing aroung the house off reciever with a plate amp in .19 sealed with a little stuffing.sounds good up to bout 125 -145 hz,goes down below 34hz.great for kick panel subs in car.take stress off my id mids when i install after home breakin and kick panel fiberglass pod assemble. So answer,try sealed at .18 crossed under 150 hz and play components 150 hz up to the seiling.not a spl sub ,more for a clean nice sound in car with windows up.good luck.

Best Answer: Hello Marcus,

Clearly this is a custom job, so getting the Exact accessories is going to be a bit of a stretch, but we can point out a general idea of what you will need. In regards to power, a small amplifier like the Pioneer GM-A4604 would work well. The rear channels will need to be bridged to run the W6. You will need to use the High Level inputs, instead of the RCAs, sense the Kenwood doesn't have sufficient outputs. But this means you can go with a simple amp kit, like the T-Spec V8-8PK. The rest is up to you and how you plan/map your project.

I would like to use this amp to power (2) JBL P662 2ohm speakers on the front channels, and 2 JL Audio 6W3V3-4 4ohm subs on the rear channels. can I mix match impedances front and rear? what will be the RMS power on the front channels at 2 ohms? what would be the RMS power for the rear channels at 4 ohms?
thanks

Best Answer: Hello Eric,

The impedance MUST match. Some higher end amplifiers have the ability to 'mix match' the load of their outputs, but even then that often depletes the life of the amplifier (despite the manufactures' approval). We suggest a traditional 3-Channel , like the JBL GTO-3EZ, or reconsidering the setup.

Feel free to speak with the Manufacture's Tech Support for their input:
