JL Audio's sealed ProWedge subwoofer enclosure is loaded with the 10th Anniversary Edition W7 Series 12" subwoofer. The JL woofer features a peak power rating of 2000 watts and a continuous RMS rating of 1000 watts. 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.
The subwoofer is loaded into high quality V-groove MDF sealed enclosure that is covered with high grade black carpeting. This compact enclosure features a rear firing design that provides a very detailed and smooth response. It also comes equipped with a gloss black laminate front baffle trim that includes engraved JL Audio and W7 logos and 3 stylish brushed aluminum rods that provide protection for the W7 subwoofer. This top of the line loaded enclosure will enhance any vehicles sound system. Although the 12W7AE-3 Subwoofer can be driven with as little as 400 Watts, for best audio performance it is recommended to run an amplifier capable of between 750 - 1000 Watts of continuous power per driver, like the JL Audio HD750/1 or JL Audio XD1000/1v2.
Every 12W7 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.
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.
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

W7 review in this JL box.
This thing bumps but its very noisy mechanically. I got 1 at first but eventually 2 is perfect in a Tahoe. I got right around 1300 watts going to it, i agree its not a sub you wana set world records with but it sounds good and accurate. 2 of them should push around high 140s+ depending on install. If you want SPL get a ported box. If you want some SPL and SQ get this one. Its just really hard to tune and get perfect but im happy with my purchase. I cant say about durability havent had them too long but they look beefy and ive punished them hard so far. Its a chore if you want to remove these, with the rings it makes it harder. This is a nice box though, cant ever go wrong with JL speakers.

the Sub you need to have
This subwoofer is an animal waiting to jump on it's prey. the bass is so tight, and the way it hits will blow you away, I truely mean it. I haved had a whole lot of different subs from MTX, Alpine, Rock Fosgate, Kickers, Boston Acoustic, Polk And Inf, but all of them don't hit as hard as this. A true champion in subs. A must for anyone how wants the BIG BAD BASS!!!!
