Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
W1v2 (JL Audio)
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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
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".
85 dB
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.
Silver
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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP) w/ Metallic Finish
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
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
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.
No
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.
0.625 cubic feet
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in 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.
0.625 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.
1.0 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.
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.
1.0 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.
4.34"
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.
9.0625"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

10 that hits lows like a 15? whaaaaaaaaaat?!

November 23, 2010

Literally, a friend of mine gave me this subwoofer a year ago because he upgraded to a much more powerful system. I now have this in the trunk of my car and with the right box ( not those under the seat boxes they dont let the sub have its potential) but a sealed box thats decent sized, you can seriously impress your own self with these subs. I plan on getting another one and a box for 2 of them. Great subwoofer, great price, just GREAT! ( P.S. the best way to wire this subwoofer is bridged on a 200 watt 2 channel amp, set the gain to about 3/4 and adjust to your preferences.)

Great Sub in Every Aspect!

December 20, 2007

I bought two of these for $120 bucks a piece before I found this website. I put them under the backseat of my 01 F150, hooked up to an old school 800W Autotek amp. These things beat pretty hard and have amazing sq. These things owned my mirrors. But if your on a budget I would def. recommend these subwoofers. And they can handle a lot more than the rated RMS.

incredible sub

October 12, 2007

This sub is probably one of the best subs you can buy if you are on a budget. This thing is incredible, I bought one of these from a local audio shop for 140 with the box. I was putting 600 rms into it and pushed it alot, and i never had a problem in the year I have had it. Most people didn't believe me when i tell them i have one ten. I would deff. recommend this sub to anyone looking for a good sub on a budget.

Very tight bass!

May 9, 2012

I have two in a small enclosure behind my rear seats and they kick very hard with the limited power I feed them. I wish I could give them a larger enclosure but space there is not much space behind my truck's rear seats. Very happy with product.

Quailty sound!

August 11, 2011

I was intently on a quality sound for my extended cab chevy truck. Its important to get a matched box for the volume of air the sub moves. With a medium quality mono amp this single sub rumbles my entire truck with zero distortion, and clean, sound. No rattles, or fuzzy noise.

Good Sub

June 24, 2011

I paired this sub with an angled sub box from Sonic to fit in my MR2 and so for in my 2 weeks of having this, its been a great sub. I am not looking to rattle my teeth out as all I was after was low end fill in my cab and i think I found it. I am feeding this with a Pioneer 4 channel digital amp bridged for about 150-200 watts and like I said, it sounds great and can really slam if I want it to.

I have 1 10" ported powered by 225 watts at 4 ohms.

This 10" subwoofer is built with quality. It has W7 patents which shows as soon as you look at it up close. The output this subwoofer produces off 200 watts vented is surprising. The subwoofer looks like it can take a lot of power because its built so tough. If you have a hatchback car this thing will surely satisfy your bass appetite. If you have any other car and just want to fix a low frequency output gap then this is good. If you want to really get loud then having multiple of these is undoubtedly necessary.

AMAZING

December 7, 2010

My English is awful, but I will try to talk something....

TOTALLY RECOMMENDED! I'm from Brazil and I bought a couple of JL10w1v2.4... a very nice subwoofer, with a very smooth and fantastic sound! Unfortunately I change my set (Morel Ultimo SC 12 2 ohms), because I will use only one subwoofer in a spare box... One of that subwoofers aren't strong enough for this type of box... in my car (Brazilian FOCUS SEDAN)

Good Thing: GOOD SOUND WITH POOR RMS WATTS AND USES SMALL BOXES! Is very skinny, almost a slim subwoofer!

The poor thing... the look wasn't good enough... a black mask (like others JL) looks better than tht grey mask of W1

Decent

November 12, 2010

Bought two 10" subs for a crew cab truck. They are decent but sound like they distort somewhat. The old MTX I had in there sounded better. Although they blew so had to replace them. Problem could be that I am still running an underpowered Kenwood amp. New amp to suit these subs better might make a big difference.

October 20, 2010

I have 2 of these under the back seat of my 2007 Chevy Silverado crew cab. Great sound!!! Not the loudest sub out there, but if your looking for a good thump no matter what kinda tunes you listen to....these are great. Very clean hitting and not an overwhelming bass to were you cant even hear the lyrics. All in all, great buy!
