Miramar, FL — Building on the core technology of JL Audio's TW5 thin-line subwoofers, the company introduces the new TW3 subwoofers, which deliver a powerful combination of shallow mounting depth and amazing excursion capability.

To allow this remarkable feat to be achieved, JL Audio's patented thin-line woofer technology compresses the architecture of the TW3's using a "concentric tube" structure built into the injection-molded cone body. This structure supports the voice coil and a full annular spider, while permitting the placement of the large motor structure further forward in the speaker than with conventional designs.

The JL Audio TW3's are optimized for small enclosures and offer the company's tab-ear mounting design to maximize cone area within their mounting footprints.

According to Manville Smith, JL Audio's V.P. of Marketing, "These subwoofers give installers the ability to add deep, powerful and accurate bass in more applications than ever before, at prices that are right in the mainstream."

  • Very shallow mounting depth (3.25 / 3.50 Inches)
