JL Audio W1v3 Series Subwoofer Driver
JL Audio W1v3 Series Subwoofer Driver

The W1v3 is an outstanding choice when your build provides space that is very tight and amplifier power that is respectably moderate. The driver features a shallow mounting depth (5.41 in. / 137 mm) and a compact motor structure, allowing it to comfortably fit in a lot of spaces where a typical 12-inch driver will not. Lacking a pole vent, the rear of the motor structure can be placed directly against an enclosure boundary. In addition, excellent excursion capability and linearity allow it to reproduce sub-bass with striking extension and quality. Several of JL Audio's proprietary technologies enhance its performance and reliability. This includes JL Audio's patented DMA, Elevated Frame-Cooling and Floating Cone Attach Method™ technologies.

Dynamic JL Audio Performance

Dynamic JL Audio Performance

The 12W1v3 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 JX500/1D. In addition, these subwoofers are optimized to operate in either a ported or sealed enclosure, needing only 1.10 cubic feet of air space in a sealed box and 1.60 cubic feet in a ported/vented enclosure. (Specific dimensions and figures can be found in the user manual, linked further below.)


Striking Linearity and Control

Striking Linearity and Control

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, W1v3 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.

Very pleased!

If you’re looking for something that’ll fit in a smaller, under seat box…this is it. They’re not the cheapest, but there’s more expensive out there too. Do it…you won’t be disappointed

I’ve always had 12’s, but wanted to go with something that would fit better in my truck, so I got some kicker 10’s. After some time with them, I just couldn’t get down with the 10’s….they just don’t do what 12’s do. After doing some digging, I found these W1’s worked for the same airspace as the box I have for the 10’s (they ask for 1 sq ft and the box is about .95 per side) and the amp (kicker 800.1) I have as well. Hooked them up today, SUPER excited with the result. Obviously I haven’t had much time on them yet, but I can already tell I made the right decision. I haven’t even really turned them up much and the bass is on point. I still need to re-tune the amp since putting them in. Need to make some adjustments tomorrow, but it’s jammin nice now.
