Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
600 watts
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.
300 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).
25 - 250 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".
84.07 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.
11.4 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.
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.
Foam
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.
0.65 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.65 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.125 cubic feet
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.125 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.
5""
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.
9"
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.

JL Audio W0....WOW

March 30, 2010

We all know the JL reputation. I bought 1 of these 10 W0's, and didn't expect much since it is a W0. I must say that after 15 of dealing in car audio, i'm sooo very impressed. The sub will SLAM at any volume, and with any music type, and still remain very tight, snappy, low, and clean sounding. I would recommend this to anyone as a beginner sub, or just a quick simple, and very wise upgrade.

great product at a great price

February 16, 2010

well, sonic offers a great price on this and it's a steal. H**l I'd pay double. This is one quality sub and the folks at JL got this newer version just right with the polyfoam surround. Bass is tight, fast, rich and damn does it bang. I ran the 60-100hz sweep to set it right on my amp, feeding her 200W off an MB Quart in a sealed box with some polyfill for smoother bass (trust me) and have had no issues. I played ACDC (great bass drum), Metallica (wow), techno (club bass!) and of course Southern Hip Hop. Now with southern hip hop the digitized bass is deep, like trip hop- try Portishead. The bass is clean, smooth and deep, you can feel it in your soul! I am definitely satisfied at the power of what 1 10" can do. I heard this on a ported and beautiful richness is all I tasted, but I went with sealed due to space and was looking for a sealed sub and this fits in either one (I ran the numerous specs). Try it, you'll be a believer. And to those that say JL is overpriced, well, try it first. I go by what my ears say. Oh, I heard a Kenwood and Alpine Type S and this was the clear winner. I also wanted something 150-300W. This fit the bill and then some. ps- single voice coil, 4 ohm, great look, durable, and don't forget to order the grill.

Stop hearing, be heard

November 2, 2009

These subs are very great, i have 3 of them in the back of my explorer, they sound amazing! The first day i got em, had my review mirror fall off. I think personally, that the W7 is good, but these W0's have a tighter louder bass, but that might be because i have 3 lol... They do not take much to power, i have an amp that peaks at 1200 bought from best buy, and neither the amp or the subs have messed up. Although i am working on getting a bigger amp. JL is amazing , but consider the pictures hanging up in your house when buying them

Sweet Sub

September 27, 2009

This is the first JL sub I have ever owned and it rocks! The mids and highs hit awesome. The lows are great for a 10 inch. The excursion is pretty crazy once it hits about 24 hz. This sub is really clean compared to what ive used before. Ex. kicker, kenwood, rockford fosgate, sony. This sub also hits really hard too. I got this sub a few days ago and so far its awesome. I just hope it lasts awhile. I have this in a 1.3 cubic ft ported box running at 150 rms. For what I like, this sub does it all. I would definitely buy this sub again. JL is the only way to go!

Value is an understatement

July 28, 2009

I wanted to add a 10" sub to my VW Tiguan but didn't want to spend too much. I listen to rock, hip-hop, and rare electronic or R&B. I prefer quality to SPL and I'm all about value for money. I listened to a W0v2, W1v2, and W3v3 in wedge boxes in my car. For my listening needs I thought the W1 was terrible with little rumble and lacking in punch. The W3 was the winner, but for what I wanted, the W0 was a very close runner-up. The quality was close enough that the $100 price difference made me skip the W3. The W0v2 hits deep and hard and fills exactly what I was looking for. After listening to it for a month now, I seriously doubt I will be upgrading in the future. (Paired via LOC to factory HU and RF P400-2 amp)

Great Sounding Sub but Overated

May 10, 2011

I purchased 2 of the JL 10WOv2-4 to install in my son's truck. Initially these subs sounded great, especially for the price. Only problem is, though they are rated to to handle 300 watts rms/600 watts peak, they will not handle it for long. I had these subs installed in custom built enclosure that my son and I fabricated, giving them exactely .65 cu. ft. each with an old school Rockford Fosgate "The Punch 150" supplying the power (.This amp is 20 years old, and is pristine condition. Of course, as you can tell by the amp I installed for him, I'm giving away my age. LOL) This set up was slamming initially, I was very impressed with the results. Sad thing is, the JL W0v2's only lasted about ~ 35 days. At any rate, I've been into car audio for quite some time, and have never witnessed a situation like this, especially since the system was calibrated to the extent that no componet of the set up would allow clipping to occur. Initially, I thought the voice coils were blown, based upon the way the subs were sounding, but after removing the subs to test them with an Ohm meter, I found the culprit of the problem - The woofer cone had separated from the foam surround. Like I said, if you buy them, I would suggest powering them with no more than 100 watts rms each. My thinking is that with the lower wattage, the cone excursion won't be as extreme, thus preventing the separation of the cone and the foam surround. Other case scenario is that JL should probably do some R&D and supply a tougher surround material, like rubber maybe. As I stated earlier, the voice coils were fine, maybe JL has a design flaw in using the foam surround. If your budget allows, go with the W3's or simular, if not, choose an amplifier pushing ~ 100 watts rms.

Everything gets better with age

April 3, 2012

I bought two of these subs back when they came out the first time put them in a standard cab ranger and smiled. I was sadend when i had to sell them and heard that JL droped this line and replaced them with the junk W1's. Well now they are back and better then they were 10 years ago. I now have three of these one in a ranger and two in a full size chevy. System on a budget guys sounds good shakes stuff when u want to and doesnt take much to power. Overall I will rekomen these to everyone i know.

JL 10w0 is a great value!

August 8, 2011

I might be bias considering i had issues with mine... but i love JL subs! They are not punchy but can bounce back for the next bass note. The only downside would be that i had issues with the voice coil and had to return mine. I would spend the extra dollars next time and get one of their higher end models next time.

Awesome sub!

March 8, 2011

I have this sub loaded in a sealed Sonic Sub Box (1H10-0.7) that I got from here. It sits in the hatch of my Acura RSX and it sounds awesome. It's powered by a Rockford Fosgate T600-4. I bridged the rear channel and its only powering this sub. The bass of my classic rock tunes sounds nice and tight. Hip hop and rap songs sound nice and boomy too. I was truly impressed by how great and how much bass this little 10" sub produces. Big plus that it doesn't take up too much room to sounds as great as it does. I would recommend this sub if you're looking for great sound in a small footprint.

Clean and accurate bass!

February 27, 2011

I recently purchased this from Sonic and recommend to everybody to do so for the great price and ease of ordering with very helpful customer service employees. I hooked 1 up in my chevy cavalier to a Kicker ZX400.1 amp (which is an awesome amp) and it hits just hard enough without rattling the trunk to hard. It is very clean and precise bass. I highly recommend JL audio. I have owned JL in the past and I have never been unsatisfied with them. Thanks Sonic

Great Sub! Great Price!

November 9, 2010

This is my first 10 inch sub, i always been a fan of Kicker 12 inch subs so i was kinda hesitant on purchasing this one. I went with JL Audio because of all the great reviews this brand gets, even the guy at the stereo shop I went to recomended JL right off the the bat soon as I told him I was looking for a 10in sub. Got this sub in a sealed box wired to a RockFosgate 250 Watt RMS Amp, This sub puts out clean loud tight bass and car mirror vibrating lows you can feel. This sub went above my expectations, Great job JL Audio.
