Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
MicroSub
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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
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.
250 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
500 watts
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.
500 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
1000 watts
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.
Rubber
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".
83 dB
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).
28 - 250 Hz
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.
10 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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Vented / Ported
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
2
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Square/Rectangle
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
11"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
35-1/2"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
5-1/8"
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Binding posts
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.

July 3, 2013

If you are a TRUE bass lover and want to hear and feel bottom end the way it was meant to be, JL'S double 8's is all you need ! And yes, they do handle 500 watts rms with the greatest of ease !! If your looking to annoy the neighborhood with prosessed electronic bottom end, get an 18, these arent for you. progressive, metal, jazz fusion lovers ??? You are gonna love this sub !! PS. I have this sub in the back of a suburban running with 4 R-series Alpine components.

To my fellow F150 owners...

June 20, 2013

We all know its really hard to find anything that fits under the rear seat. This thing fits PERFECTLY and absolutely slams for 2 8"s. Wow, very impressed. Anyone who says differently doesn't know how to tune an amp/processor. Buy this thing, it's worth every penny.

Awesome little set of sbs

March 19, 2013

Bought these to get me by until I could build my own box... Wow was I impressed. These two 8s crank out the base. I had pretty low expectations, but these really perform and will probably stay for a while...

AMAZING

November 28, 2012

I did all the research and was limited to teh space I had in my truck. I wanted high quality with outstanding sound. I hooked this sub enclosure up to my JL Audio JX500/1D amp with the remote and it absolutely blew me away. I have a 2012 F-150 XLT and this fits easily under the rear seat and produces bass like there are 12" in the bed. I can't believe this enclosure is so load, clear, and flexible throughout all types of music. If you have an F-150 and are thinking about anything other than this setup you will be disappointed if you don't go with this setup. You get what you pay for and by spending a little more you will definitely tell the difference. Highly recommend.

Nice setup

October 9, 2012

I really like that JL offers such a potent package at such a good price. W3s are a really good speaker. It took about two weeks for them to break in and after that I was really impressed.

It's for real...

April 21, 2012

Was torn between this unit and the single 8 version of it. With this carrying a 2 ohm load and the single having a 4 ohm load this made more sense for my amp. Fits perfect in a small space under the seat and offers very clean, accurate sound. Way more bass than you'd expect to get from two 8's. Highly recommend this thing. Well done JL.
