12" H.O. Wedge Loaded Subwoofer Enclosure

JL Audio's slot-ported H.O. (High Output) Wedge 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 MDF slot-ported enclosure that is covered with high grade dark gray carpeting and an attractive Black insert. This H.O. enclosure features a rear firing design that provides a very detailed and smooth response. It also comes equipped with an engraved JL Audio logo and a recessed mounting baffle that provides protection for the W7AE 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.

1.15 inches (29mm) one-way Linear Excursion

1.15 inches (29mm) 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

No such thing as too much bass...

I had 2 12 inch W3's before I decided to get the JL W7 and let me tell you this: this sub is the hardest hitting 12 inch sub that I have ever heard, and the sub isn't even broken in yet. (I know it's a myth that the sub has to be broken in, but for this kind of money I just wanna play it safe). I'm also not pushing the sub to it's limit. I have the JL Audio JX1000/1D amp pushing 750 watts @ 3 ohms. This thing handles the lows like nothing, every bass note is heard and it definitely shakes every mirror in the car. If you have the money for it, I say go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Well Worth It!

This set up is a steal at under $900. Hell, it's a steal at under $1,200. SonicElectronix came through for me when I didn't have a ton of money to work with.

the best sub/enclosure engineering.

JL Audio HO112R-W7AE is the best subwoofer matching with enclosure engineered and build to almost precision. I have this sub in my 2011 BMW X6M powered by an Audison LRX1.2K 1 Ch 1200 W x 1 (4Ω)
1 Ch 2000 W x 1 (2Ω) &1 Ch 3000 W x 1 (1Ω) so do the math for clean power 3Ω. this setup is a beast and a darling princess when you want it to be.
