A W7’s unique proposition is its ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality...all at the same time. The keys to these performance capabilities lie at the very core of loudspeaker design, where electromagnetic and mechanical behavior combine in fiendishly complex ways. JL Audio’s intense research into these behaviors allow us to optimize motor and suspension systems to faithfully reproduce every bass detail with unparalleled linearity and accuracy. As a result, eight U.S. Patents have been issued for motor, suspension and assembly technologies used in W7 subwoofers.
To commemorate the W7's tenth anniversary, each model features special “Anniversary Edition” (AE) trim, with a satin black frame finish, a bright-anodized trim ring and special badging.
In recent years, the W7 platform has also become a reference standard in the high-end home audio world. Variants of the W7 are used in our ultra-premium Fathom® and Gotham® powered home subwoofers, which have received top ratings and recommendations from the world’s leading reviewers and are in daily use at some of the world’s top recording and mastering studios.
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.
