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 150 Watts, for best audio performance it is recommended to run an amplifier capable of between 400 - 500 Watts of continuous power per driver, like the JL Audio JX500/1D or JL Audio XD300/1v2. In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosure, needing only 0.625 cubic feet of air space in a sealed box and 1.125 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'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.
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.

Single 10" Sealed MDF Subwoofer Enclosure (Belva MDFS10)
10-inch Sealed Car Sub Box Made with 3/4" MDF and lined w/ Polyfil (0.77 cu ft airspace 10SQTC)
You've got an awesome subwoofer there, pal. But where's it gonna go? You can't just throw that thing in the trunk and call it a day. Don't worry, Belva's got your back. With superior construction, great features and everything you need for bass, you'll be ready to pass up that entry-level box you've been eyeballing.
You get quality boxes with solid 3/4" MDF because nothing else will do the job right. You want to flex your windshield, not your box's innards. You get polyfill built into the box, making sure your subs perform perfectly. On top of that, you get a box that's CARB Phase 2 Compliant, meaning your box won't emit as much nasty formaldehyde as the competition. Better for your bass and better for you.
Look, nobody buys a subwoofer and says, 'Aw man, I just want a teeny bit of thump.' Naw man, you want something that kicks you in the chest, but you need a box that's gonna put up with it. That's where Belva comes in. While other brands use less-than-optimal 1/2-inch MDF, we've got 3/4-inch MDF to make sure you get all the bass you can handle. Why risk a busted box? Belva's the obvious choice when it comes to giving your sub a good home and giving you the low end you're looking for.

Decent Small Box
For the money it is a pretty good product. The carpet is a nice black. Very dark and very clean. The box is solid and can take a beating. The terminal cup is nice as its a binding post and not those crappy pressure tabs. Good box, decent sealing, good carpet.

Quality at a great price
I got this box for an Earthquake dbxi10 and thankfully the sub fit right in despite me thinking the measurements for the cutout were a bit off. The little bit of polyfill lining is a nice touch. The box felt secure and solid with a good bit of weight for the quality of wood. It definitely didn't feel like a cheap particle board box. The carpeting was on snug and looked good as well. Great pre-fab box for your sub. I expect it to last but can't say for sure as I just got it in recently.

Not much can really be said about a sub enclosure, other than it does its job well. My Rockford Fosgate P1S2-10 fit in snuggly. The only thing that was a tad iffy was that when drilling once the bit went through it would catch of the inside insulation and mess it up, but quite honestly it didn't really bother me at all. Good enclosure.
