Enclosed Subwoofer System with Single 12W6v3-D4 Subwoofer, Dark Gray / Black Carpet (600 W, 2 ) - Ported Enclosure
JL Audio's patented High Output Enclosures are designed to deliver the ultimate high-performance bass experience with a rare combination of superb sound quality and awesome output. In the HO112-W6v3, the high power handling of the 12W6v3 Subwoofer, combined with its small enclosure requirements, results in a very compact subwoofer system that is capable of impressive output with moderate amplification.
JL Audio's patented, chamber-coupled port design (U.S. patent #6,625,292) wraps around the inner enclosure boundary and terminates just above the woofer, coupling the port output to the woofer's direct output. This also provides the necessary surface area and port length to maximize the performance of the W6v3 driver. This enclosure design has been carefully engineered to the optimum ported alignment for the 12W6v3, and has been fine-tuned through extensive real-world listening.
This subwoofer system is shipped wired, loaded and ready to connect via a five-way binding post terminal. While no grille is provided, the recessed mounting baffle provides some protection for the woofer. A steel mesh woofer grille insert can be purchased separately (Model: SGR-12W6v2/v3), if additional woofer protection is desired.
Finish: Dark gray, high-grade automotive carpet, with black carpet on woofer baffle. "JL AUDIO" is embroidered in silver on the side surface of the enclosure.
Construction: CNC-Cut High-Grade MDF
Recommended amplifier power: 200 - 600WTechnology High-Output (H.O.) Enclosure Design (U.S. Patent #6,625,292)
Nominal Impedance: 2
Insanely powerful H.O. (High Output) systems deliver very high SPL while retaining excellent sound quality. V-Groove MDF Construction
This advanced cabinet-building technique uses CNC-machining to create precise panel joints that make enclosure assembly more efficient and exact. Dynamic Motor Analysis - DMA Optimized Motor
JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, 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. Elevated Frame Cooling (U.S. Patent #6,219,431 & #6,229,902)
JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression. Floating Cone Attach Method - FCAM™ (U.S. Patent #6,501,844)
This assembly technique, conceived by JL Audio, ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment. Pole-Vent Airflow Control - PVAC (U.S. Patent #6,535,613)
In high-powered Subwoofers, thermal management is essential. W6v2/W6v3 Terminal Jumper System
Information on connecting the dual voice coils using the Terminal Jumper System Engineered Lead-Wire System (U.S. Patent #7,356,157)
Carefully engineered lead-wire design and attachments ensure controlled, quiet lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands. Customizable Trim Ring
This removable ring can be painted to match the installation theme and directly receives JL Audio grille mesh inserts (sold separately). Built in U.S.A. with Global Components
JL Audio's Miramar, Florida loudspeaker production facility is one of the most advanced in the world.
