JL Audio CP212-W0V3 Loaded Sub Enclosure
JL Audio CP212-W0V3 Loaded subwoofer enclosure
system with dual 12W0v3-4 subwoofer drivers, dark gray carpet (600 W, 2 Ω) – ported enclosure.
This powerful slot-ported BassWedge™ subwoofer system delivers awesome output at an unsurpassed value. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on the same plane as the woofers to produce excellent extension and response smoothness. The port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises. The ultra-versatile BassWedge™ shape has extended sides so that it can be placed with the woofers firing out or straight down, off the floor of the vehicle. The shape works equally well in forward or rear-firing installations. This gives you plenty of options for tweaking the loading of the enclosure into your vehicle.
This JL Audio CP212-W0V3 subwoofer system is shipped wired, loaded and ready to connect via a push-button terminal.
Finish: Dark gray, high-grade automotive carpet with “JL AUDIO” embroidery on the top edge and “Slot-Ported BassWedge™” embroidered on the port mouth.
Elevated Frame Cooling
Many speakers employ venting techniques to enhance voice coil cooling. This is typically accomplished by having big holes in the sides of the frame just below the spider attachment shelf. While it provides a modest cooling benefit, this low-velocity air-flow does not blow directly or strongly on the voice coil.
The JL Audio CP212-W0V3 is much more advanced. JL Audio's patented design improves upon this cooling technique in a number of ways. By elevating the frame above the top-plate of the motor (via stand-offs integrated into the bottom of the frame) a narrow, high-velocity air-path is created between the bottom surface of the frame and the top surface of the top-plate. This air path leads directly to the voice coil and then turns upward into the spider air cavity. By utilizing the pumping action of the spider through this focused air path, a large volume of cool air hits the coil windings directly.
The upper surface of the top-plate (one of the speaker’s hottest parts) is directly exposed to cooling air flow, whereas on a conventional design it is isolated from the air flow by the lower flange of the frame. The elevated frame technology greatly increases thermal power handling, reduces compression effects and does so without any additional parts.
CP212-W0V3 proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems. This was 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.
