JL Audio 12W7AE-3 12 Inch Subwoofer
10th Anniversary Edition – W7 12 inch Subwoofer Driver (1000 W, 3 Ω) The JL Audio 12W7AE-3 12 Inch Subwoofer brings serious performance to the table by combining the breakthrough of the long-excursion W7 design with a large 12-inch bore. It has been called “addictive,” “seductive” and “the new subwoofer reference”, by some of the world’s toughest reviewers, and has earned these accolades by delivering nearly limitless dynamics, exceptional balance and world-class sound quality. This potent driver is best used with amplifier power in the 400W – 1000W range and is optimized to operate in a 1.375 cu. ft. (38.9 l) sealed enclosure, or a 1.75 cu. ft. (49.6 l) ported enclosure. Detailed enclosure recommendations can be found in the “Specifications” tab.
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.
The W-Cone is a unit-body cone assembly that delivers astonishing cone stiffness with minimal mass. The shape also provides superb torsional rigidity, which is critical to maintaining voice coil alignment at the suspension limits.

- The best Review by Steven
- I have been a JL fan for years and this is my second set of W7s that I have purchased. I consider these to be the best subs on the market and love the way they sound. They are very loud but extremely accurate. I listen to all types of music and they are soft and smooth when I'm listening to jazz and classic rock and you can feel the bass in your chest on hip hop. Worth every penny and I would highly recommend. (Posted on 3/1/2017)
