JL Audio - Subwoofers
Designing and building great subwoofer drivers lies at the very core of our passion for audio.
With each generation of subwoofer drivers, JL Audio has achieved significant breakthroughs in design and performance. From the original 8W2, to the groundbreaking W1 and W6 subwoofers of the 1990's and on to the astonishing W7AE's, W6v3's and TW5v2's in the last decade, the focus has always been on sound quality and real-world performance capabilities... on redefining the state-of-the-art for low-frequency reproduction.
A highly experienced engineering team, led by JL Audio CEO, Lucio Proni, works with the industry's most advanced engineering resources to continually improve the performance of our products in each generation. Many of their breakthroughs have earned U.S. and international patents and give JL Audio subwoofers unique capabilities that cannot be matched by other products. Some of these are small ideas that contribute to reliability or deliver small performance improvements. Others are huge ideas that reinvent the way subwoofers are built and are outside the comfort zone of overseas loudspeaker factories.
This is why, at a time when most audio products are built in Asia, JL Audio’s commitment to in-house loudspeaker production continues to grow. All W7AE’s, W6v3’s, TW5v2’s, TW3's, TW1 and W3v3’s are built in our South Florida factory, where our highly skilled U.S. workforce can ensure extremely high-quality standards. By working closely with our engineers in one of the world’s most advanced loudspeaker assembly facilities, they build special products that are capable of satisfying the most demanding audio enthusiast... and our own desire to build the best.
When you purchase a JL Audio subwoofer, you are buying a serious piece of audio equipment, designed, built and tested by people who love great audio and know how to achieve it.
A W7’s unique proposition is its ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality...all at the same time.
W7 - Tight.
JL Audio W6 subwoofers have embodied the optimal combination of trade-offs required to reproduce exceptional in-car bass from very compact enclosures.
W6v3 - It just got real.
Groundbreaking large woofer performance with only 2.6 inches of mounting depth.
TW5v2 - Think thin... forget weak.
Phenomenal performance at medium power levels, without requiring a large enclosure.
W3v3 - Loaded.
World-class performance and refined sound quality for challenging applications.
TW3 - Old rules no longer apply.
Exceptional performance for tight-space, moderate power applications.
TW1 - Let's shake things up again.
The shallow-depth woofer solution for lower power applications.
W1v3 - Deeper thinking.
The term ”overbuilt” gets thrown around often, but in the case of the W0v3’s, it actually applies. With beefy 2.0 or 2.5-inch voice coils and our patented Elevated-Frame Cooling, they’re certainly capable of handling power.
