JL Audio 12W3V3-4 12 Inch Sub
How the JL Audio 12W3V3-4 12 Inch Sub is built
This newest generation of W3’s benefits from a whole suite of advanced technologies originally developed for our flagship W7’s. The DMA-optimized, long linear excursion capability minimizes distortion and increases output, while multiple patented technologies enhance performance and reliability. These advances make the v3’s the best sounding, most reliable W3’s yet. A mineral-filled polypropylene upper cone body with a metallic JL Audio logo medallion provide a simple, classy look. A removable (and customizable) mounting flange trim ring receives grille-mesh inserts directly, without the need for additional grille hardware (Grille mesh inserts are sold separately). W3v3′s are built to exacting quality standards in our Miramar, Florida factory and are offered in five sizes, ranging from 6.5-inch to 13.5-inch nominal diameters. This powerhouse 12 inch subwoofer deliver potent performance and world-class sound quality in medium power applications. Several exclusive JL Audio technologies and proprietary assembly techniques are applied to the 12W3v3 to enhance linearity and reliability. The JL Audio 12W3v3-4 is best used with amplifier power in the 150W – 500W range and is optimized to operate in a compact 1.125 cu. ft. (31.8 l) sealed enclosure, or a 1.75 cu. ft. (49.6 l) ported enclosure.
JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, first developed by JL Audio in 1997 and refined over the years to scientifically address the issue of speaker motor linearity. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients… or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass.
Elevated Cooling Frame
JL Audio’s patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression. This means the JL Audio 12W3V3-4 delivers unsurpassed sound quality while maintaining optimal operating temperature.
