W7AE 10th Anniversary Edition Subwoofer Driver
W7AE 10th Anniversary Edition Subwoofer Driver

The W7AE embodies JL Audio's commitment to pushing the envelope of speaker technology. This Tenth Anniversary edition of JL Audio’s ultimate performance subwoofer features multiple patented technologies inherited from the previous W7 driver, but are distinguished by a few cosmetic differences to set it apart - most notably the Satin-Black Powdercoated Basket and Bright Anodized Surround Clamp Ring. Moreover, an OverRoll™ Surround, W-Cone technology and a Floating-Cone attach method are just a few of the JL Audio exclusive assets that set the W7AE above any other "high end" subwoofer driver currently on the market. These drivers have set the bar for drivers wanting to provide the deep transparent lows of a Sound Quality woofer and the hard hitting power of an SPL sub. The W7AE is able to provide its sublime sound quality and extreme output by efficiently dissipating thermal buildup and optimizing its staggering linear excursion.

Although the 8W7AE-3 Subwoofer can be driven with as little as 200 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 XD600/1v2. In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosures, needing 0.875 cubic feet of air space in a sealed box and 1.00 cubic foot in a ported/vented enclosure. (Specific dimensions and figures can be found in the user manual, linked further below.)

Every W7AE subwoofer is built to exacting quality standards in JL Audio's Miramar, Florida factory. Each of the four models is a completely original design from surround to back-plate (even the bolts and screws used in assembly have been purpose-designed and manufactured to our specifications). Its this attention to detail that delivers the JL Audio quality and performance we have all become accustomed to.

0.75 inches (19 mm) one-way Linear Excursion

0.75 inches (19 mm) of Linear Excursion

By utilizing space wasted in conventional speakers, JL Audio's ground-breaking OverRoll™ Surround controls the W7's massive excursion without sacrificing precious cone area. In addition, the W-Cone™ assembly delivers astonishing cone stiffness with minimal mass. The shape also provides incredible torsional rigidity, which is critical to maintaining voice coil alignment at the suspension limits. Combined, these two technologies allow for the driver to achieve extraordinary linear excursion (Xmax), therefore providing that rich JL Audio bass.


Unparalleled Linearity and Accuracy

Unparalleled Linearity and Accuracy

DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W7AE 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

Best 8" SQ sub on the market. Period.

The following review is for 8W7AE-3, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I've been running these subs since their intro back in '04, I believe - this 'll be my 2nd quad set. Yes, there are less expensive 8" subs out there, that might get louder too, but NONE of them will sound as good doing it. Worth every penny. If sound quality plays a greater role for you over just being 'loud', then these are the way to go. And make no mistake; they DO get loud too!!

JL Audio w7

The following review is for 8W7AE-3, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I have been installing car stereo systems for a while and today i built 2 boxes for customers. Once one of the boxes just so happened to be for this w7 8. I was truly impressed with the amount of output and how linear this woofer stays when it is being fully pushed. The amp was a rockford t1500 bdcp so it was clean power and let me tell you, this 8 got LOUD for its size and took the power extremely well. I have installed sundown sa 8's sundown x8's dc m3 8's as well as PSI 8" woofers and this woofer definitely held its ground against all the other competitors and took the power better then some of them. Overall a excellent woofer if you can swallow the price point.

Best subs you will find, period.

These subs are so great I bought four of them for my 2020 Chevy truck. When it came to purchasing them, Sonic Electronix had the best deal.
