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
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
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.
0.625 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
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.

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.

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.

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.)

This woofer replaced the one that came in my Polk Audio PSW10 sub (circa 2000). It works perfectly. Shakes the house! I had to make the opening a tad larger for this application but it was worth it! It sounds very deep and has a much heavier magnet than the stock PA it replaced. This is a great deal!

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.

Good Starter Sub

October 6, 2010

It is a good starter sub if all you are looking for is some fairly good sq low end bass. it doesnt put out huge output, nor is it the top of the line sub for sq. It is a decent mix of in-between if you put it in a sealed box and give it 250-300 watts RMS. However for the cost, you could buy a much better 10 sub. Examples being: Type R, Focal, Infinity Reference, etc. Also good for small spaces as the sub is very shallow. Decent Starter sub...thats about it.

JL Audio Subs: Best Brand To Go With

February 15, 2009

I've got two of these in my 98 Dodge Ram Ext. Cab Truck with a custom box that's flush with the back seat. I have a Jensen 600 watt amp powering both of them. They hit great; make my headlights flash when they hit. My friend said he could hear them across the park about 100 yds away (trucks hold the sound in good) and for just two 10's you can't beat that esp. for the price. I think I'm gonna add a JL W7 12" to them so that I can hit all mids and lows with bass.

GREAT SUBS FOR A LOW BUDGET

January 30, 2008

I have 2 of these babies in custom boxes under the back seats of my F-150, and MAN do they sound good. Despite the fact that they are 10's and are facing down (that's the only way you have enough cubic airspace in an f150), I have set off alarms a couple times. Hooked up to a JL 1200 a/b amp at 4 ohms and not only are they decently loud, they sound incredible, in custom JL fashion. If you turn the bass down, they sound amazing with rock, and can hit a big range of frequency. Highly recommend these.

I bought this sub as part of a budget $700 system and it is amazing! I don't even have the amplifier sub settings to max and this thing rocks my entire car! If I ever wanted more bass I'd get another one of these hooked up to a mono amp for sure.

Highly recommend if you are on a budget or don't know exactly what you want from your system yet. For $80 this thing is KILLER

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.

January 9, 2006

JL has always provided exceptional quality. This sub is no different. I have seen many subs and JL has many of the best subs available. This entry level subwoofer out performs most "competition" subs.
It only requiures moderate power tp push it making it excellent for beginners and the budget concious.

Clean, Clear, Tight Bass, excellent value, only one needed for compact car.

August 10, 2011

I purchased this sub for my Scion TC and connected it to a 300 watt RMS Class D Kenwood Monoblock. In keeping with the JL's recommendations I run the amp at about 1/2 to 2/3 of the max gain (Optimal Recommended Power = 150-200Watts RMS) anything more than that is just way too much for the car as the interior of the TC is small. I am super pleased with the sub, having upgraded for an Orion 10" this sub is very responsive, precise, clear and has plenty of punch. I would definitely recommend this sub in a sealed enclosure for hatchback compact cars such as the Scion TC.

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.

Don't let the wattage fool you. JL is prided in being the loudest for the wattage. For this sub they recomend only 150 RMS and I've run it on that, and it's miles louder than two kicker comp 10's. Trust me this is a must have for a small system. Won't dissapoint!

Great sub. literally had a few hours but impressed. I was led to get a Kicker shallowmount CVT 10". I did - it blew or tore from the frame in a month. So had to listen for the last two months with rattles and air leaks. Just installed this JL Audio 10w1v2-4. WOW!!!... definitely more bass than the kicker when it was working... smoother and richer and this 10 i have in my little cheesy ground shaker under my rear seat of my 05 F150 is making my mirror rattle.. the other did not.. It is strong and seems to pack 2x more punch.. i ordered a second one because I was so impressed. Running it off a pioneer 6300 radio w/ kenwood 8105 mono amp.. worth the investment..

I really like this sub. It is a very good beginner sub. It is loud enough to Make the music sound great and can go loud enough to piss the guy next to you off. But it is nothing crazy. To be honest I wish I got something a bit stronger. I have two in the back if my mercury mountaineer and it sound fine and rattles everything. It did take a good amount of playing around with settings in my head unit to find my liking of tone and kick. Now I just need to amp the speakers to counteract the kick. Overall very good beginner sub. Great for teens. ( which is what I am)
