Since 1993, JL Audio W6 subwoofers have embodied the optimal combination of trade-offs required to reproduce exceptional in-car bass from very compact enclosures. W6v3’s are the third generation of this acclaimed pedigree, representing a giant leap forward in our quest for small box bass perfection.
W6v3 subwoofers share key groundbreaking technologies with their flagship W7 brethren resulting in distortion levels well below audibility throughout the driver’s dynamic range. In addition to these technologies, W6v3’s also incorporate an innovative cooling structure that efficiently channels air around the voice coil to optimize power handling and fidelity. The suspension design features a rubber surround for enhanced durability and a large-diameter, progressive roll spider for linear compliance over the woofer’s excursion range. W6v3 cones are injection-molded, mineral-filled polypropylene and feature a silver accent ring that creates a classy look in combination with the satin black cast alloy basket. All W6v3’s offer dual 4-ohm voice coils that can be wired in series for an 8-ohm load, or in parallel for a 2-ohm load.
Both W6v3 models offer impressive linear excursion of 0.75-inches (19 mm), one-way, along with highly powerful magnetic systems that have been optimized via our proprietary DMA technology to maintain a highly stable magnetic field over the entire excursion envelope of the driver. This leads directly to significant reductions in audible distortion and creates a tighter, more accurate low-frequency presentation in your vehicle, at any listening level.
These are, quite simply, the best JL Audio W6 subwoofers ever… and that is saying something.
“. . . the best sounding subwoofer that I have tested for CA&E.”
– Eric Holdaway, Car Audio & Electronics (USA), March 2004
JL Audio’s engineering department is at the forefront of research into fundamental loudspeaker behavior. We have developed proprietary analysis systems and invested heavily in state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing. This has borne numerous products widely considered as reference standards and has also resulted in many U.S. and International Patents issued for technologies that refine and extend the audio performance envelope.
Every W7AE, W6v3, TW5v2, TW3, TW1,& W3v3 subwoofer is built to exacting quality standards in our Miramar, Florida factory, with globally sourced components. All models are completely original designs from surround to back-plate (even the bolts and screws used in assembly have been purpose-designed and manufactured to our specifications).
A bit obsessive, perhaps, but so is the quest for the ultimate in audio reproduction...a goal that we pursue with passion, through research and without compromise.
