The W0v3 offers superb excursion capability, linearity and an overall performance output that puts it right at the top of its price class. The driver features a very beefy 2.0-inch diameter voice coil, a DMA-optimized motor system and JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling design - all purpose-engineered for enhanced power handling and reliability. What this also means, is your system will be immediately injected with the increase in output and better sound fidelity that one expects from a JL Audio product. In addition, excellent excursion capability and linearity allow it to reproduce sub-bass with striking extension and quality. When matched up with the proper power source, signal and setup the W0v3 is capable of a well rounded sound that is unparalleled by any other driver in its price range.
The 10W0v3 Subwoofer can be driven with as little as 75 Watts. However, for best audio performance it is recommended to run an amplifier capable of between 200 - 300 Watts of continuous power per driver, like the JL Audio XD300/1v2 or JL Audio JX500/1D. In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosure, needing only 0.65 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.)
DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at delivering superior dynamic stability and low distortion. As a result of DMA optimization, W0v3 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 tight, clean, articulate bass that also allows for extreme linear excursion, phenomenal power handling and control, control, control.

Great little sub
I had one of these in a small sealed wedge box in a grand cherokee powered by a JL 100/2 amp bridged of course and it was great. Break in was short maybe 10 hours of play time and a bit of tweaking. Some settings every one thought i had a 12.

I just bought this from a shop around me. It is in a sealed box behind my seat in a regular cab s10. The bass boost on my amp is on zero and this speaker is still loud. I will go back and buy another and hopefully port the boxes and blow my doors off. I highly recommend

I'm using this JL Audio 10W0v3 -4 with a FLI 450S-2 in a Single 10" Sealed MDF Enclosure (10SQTC) and it rocks pretty hard! I have this rear firing in my 1996 jeep cherokee and it definatly compliments my JL 5.25's quite nicely. I have reviews written for the other two items written as well. Check them out!

I bought it for a sq build for decent kick drum thump, and it exceeded my expectations greatly. i was downsizing my build from two PSI 15's on 2kwrms, to this on ~320wrms am i'm not dissapointed! i built a box to jl spec but tuned to 28hz for a flatter, sq response curve. this dude dominates low lows and the xmax is ridiculous and no distortion! it is a very musical sub. the only downside is that i wish it had alittle tighter bass, but it could be the box, but my 6x9's in the doors handle that decently. buy this sub!

JL Sub 10"
I bought this sub for my truck in January. Now 6 months later still hitting hard. If you want some bass in your vehicle but not overboard this is the sub to go. Hits good and catches most beats with a crisp sound. Overall well worth the money spent, would definitely buy another!!!!

Fit 03 dakota QC 4x4 SLT w/infinity
Sounds great in a custom .65 cu ft sealed built box behind the rear seats on the long section. This meant the seats no longer fold up but Im ok with that trade off. paired perfectly with the JL500.1 amp that is mounted under passenger seat no issues. more than loud enough and hits hard enough for my daily.

Great sound for a "shallow" sub
I had always wanted a JL sub because of the great reviews I've read. I am so glad I stuck to my guts and got the W0. I know is rated at 300 watts rms, but do not let this fool you, this sub hits HARD! I paired this sub (single 10 inch) with a Boss mono amp running 300 Watts @ 4 ohms in a ported pro box for my 05 ram 1500 regular cab and couldn't not be happier. I did the big 3 upgrade because of the amp needing constant 14 volts in order to keep up. All that aside, this sub looks and sounds AMAZING!!! JL does an outstanding job with the design and quality of their products. I would highly recommend this sub to anyone wanting to add some "entry level" bass to their sound system. You will not be disappointed.

Oddly good for the price
I have always found JL Audio to make my favorite speakers, but man, I cannot believe how good a speaker this inexpensive sounds. I used to have 2 (12") Infinity Kappa Perfects in an old car that sounded incredible, they also cost me $300 apiece. I am running two of these in my car and they sound almost as good as speakers that cost more than twice as much. The bass is deep and tight with moderate power. I have them ran in parallel so that they operate at 2 ohms and receive the full 600 watts my amp is capable of. I am truly impressed by these speakers relative to the cost. Whether you have been into car audio for most of your life or just got into it, these subs are one of the best affordable options on the market.
