Precision-built bass

The JL Audio name means high-quality sound, and the 10W0v3-4 10" subwoofer doesn't come up short when delivering trademark JL performance. You'll find patented technologies like an optimized motor system that promotes precise, linear cone movement, plus advanced cooling systems throughout the frame for rapid heat dissipation.

Long-lasting performance

This W0v3 Series sub features a tough polypropylene cone that resists flexing, and a durable foam surround that'll stand up to hard use. The cone's extra-long excursion capability lets it hit truly deep notes without distorting, while the hefty 2-inch voice coil drives the woofer accurately for top-notch performance under extreme conditions.

The patented elevated frame design delivers air flow directly to the voice coil, cooling it for better power handling. JL Audio designed this sub to work in compact sealed or medium-sized ported enclosures, and they offer an optional grille that'll protect your JL Audio sub in its box.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 225 and 450 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Features

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, 10W0v3-4 motors display linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintain a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.

Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the 10W0v3-4 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.

Rear Gasket: The woofer has a rear gasket to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.

Long Excursion: The 10W0v3-4 subwoofer has 11.4mm of linear excursion, giving you louder bass with less distortion.

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 0.65 ft³ sealed box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 18" W x 11" H x 9" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.)

Recommended Ported Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 1.125 ft³ ported box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 23" W x 12" H x 13.625" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.) A slot port measuring 10.5" tall x 1.25" wide x 32" long is recommended, resulting in a tuning frequency of 30 Hz and a -3 dB point of 29.6 Hz.

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.

Great value and sound

I bought this sub to replace the factory 10" sub in a 2014 Audi A6 with the base (non-Bose) stereo. The factory sub is mounted in the rear deck in pretty much a free air configuration (no box or baffle, just the trunk). I am driving it with an Alpine MV500 amp, using the factory sub output to drive the amp's high level inputs, which allows me to retain the sub level control in the Audi's MMI system.

I believe this is the best money I've ever spent on car audio! This sub combo took an decent factory stereo with little to no bottom end and transformed it to a great sounding system. This is a fairly common mod to the A6, and it's worth every penny.

Pros: Happiness, at last.

Cons: If you are looking for somethinng that can rattle the neighbor's windows, this isn't it. Because of the free air setup if you really crank up the low bass, you'll cause the sub's cone to hit the factory grill in the deck causing "rattle", and ultimately will bottom out the voice coil causing damage. But for good, solid bottom end in this application, it's great.

Great output for small subs. They almost put out what my 12" kickers did with same head unit, same amp, in same car. Box recommendation by JL is .65FT each. Small! The ONLY reason I gave these a 4 instead of a 5 is due to the low efficiency of the driver. Takes a lot of juice to drive these little guys to their potential.

Pros: Great, well built, look cool, small box required, oh yeah, lots of output.

Cons: Low efficiency rating (1W / 1M) requires a big amp to properly power cleanly. Running a Kicker 1200.1 on these with the gain down all the way for crystal clear non-distorted power. Any less amp wouldn't do justice.

Nice sub

First ill say this sub puts out a ton of sound for the amount of power is needs, making it very efficient. In the past I have own an Alpine type R 12 inch, kicker 12s, and another set of Jl's that were 12s as well. By far these out performed all those products by far. This 10 inch sub manages to hit almost all the same notes yet it is more punchy and clear. I'm not too concerned about how loud my subs go, yet if I want loud these will also provide. There's not much more i could ask out of a sub, especially in this price range. My setup is two of these in a sealed box (lil bigger than recommend but it was a cheap box) with a rockford fosgate prime r500-1 amp. That being said I'm putting 250 watts to each and it seems perfect although its slightly above the recommended amount of power. hope this helps!

Review for the uneducated: Deez tings pownd!

Pros: small footprint, big sound

Cons: none i could find, lower price is always good if you wanna get picky

I bought these to replace my older Alpine Type "E" subs. I'm very glad I did. I have them powered with an Alpine PDX-M6 amp and couldn't be happier. Installation was incredibly easy. As far as the "coolness factor" goes, I couldn't care less. They're installed in a custom box that sits under my back seat so myself and nobody else will see them anyway. I highly recommend these subs for they're performance and price.

These 10" woofers under the seat of my crew cab are just what I needed. I wanted big sound but I did not have much room to put it. My alternative was these JL 10's. Hands down JL is the best. I read reviews on a bunch of speakers before deciding on these one's. There is a reason they are the top rated.

Pros: Great sound. Doesn't require a large enclosure.

Cons: N/A

was suprised to find out that these jl woofers were made in china. i thought the jl stuff was american made. anyway they were a replacment for 2 older w3 woofers. if i had to redo i would try the new version of the w3 the originals hit much harder and deeper. the w0 seems to drop off where the w3s would still reproduce.

Pros: price,good sound for a entry level woofer. easy installation. clean looks. grills fit correctly and look real nice

Cons: not true jl quality, made in china, dont hit like the old school stuff.

I bought these subs and replaced them with some Kicker Comp I had and it was like night and day. The sound quality is perfect and the bass was crisp. In the pasted I own subwoofers from Kicker and Image Dynamics and I heard a lot of other subwoofers and in my opinion JL Audio are the best subwoofers out there.

I have previously used an older version of this sub. And when the old sub finally blew after 8 years of use, I picked up the same sub. The build quality is much better, and install was super easy. Fit the same box. Sound Quality is more bass for such a small woofer. This was worth the moeny I paid for it.

JL Audio used to be THE name in Subs in the 90's and early 2000's,.. and I used them about 10 years ago.. I decided to build a new complete system for my new 350z i acquired and install it all myself (a serious job, wow).. Anyhow,.. while some others on forums told me that "JL isn't what it used to be.. etc" -- I stuck to my guns and went with the JL Audio line of subs, in this case a 10" JL w0,..

I was NOT dissapointed. My goal was a good high sound quality system, it didn't have to have bass you could hear half a mile away, and I didn't want "boom boom boom" type of sound. I wanted tight , fast, bass response. I listen to mostly Rock/Alternative.

I put in some JBL MS62C components up front, and some MB Quart 1998 (German made) QM-160-KX 6.5 Coaxials in the back (wow, those older MB Quarts are miles above most speakers out there today),.. paired it with a Kenwood DDX470 and this JL 10" W0 from Crutchfield in a custom "stealth" .66 Cu.Ft. sealed box.

I'm running a PPI 900.5 - 5 Channel Amp, with 70watts RMS going to all four of the 6.5" and 1" tweeters , and 270watts going to this JL 10" W0v3-4.

All I can say is wow,.. and I'm so glad I stuck with my gut feeling,.. I knew JL Audio didn't somehow go to become "junk",.. and this thing puts out WAY more bass than I need, and it's clean, and "tight" bass. Don't misunderstand me, it will play Rap and "boom" just fine, but my design was for tight rock bass.

I highly, highly recommend this sub with 250-300watts RMS.

Pros: Best quality sub for price on the market.. at essentially $100,.. it's hard to beat. If you aren't familiar with sub brands, or just don't want to do all the research, just buy JL Audio of the appropriate size and model.. and you won't be dissapointed, it's that simple. Make sure you match the wattage RMS up properly. Tight/Responsive Voice Coil (doesn't lag on quick rock, or double bass).. Nothing classier than the JL Logo on the center of a Sub.. I'm sorry.

Cons: For a JL Audio sub? None. Literally none. The power range is perfect at 200-300watts RMS "preferred" (these days it's hard to find a sub amp output under 200-300watts. Thus it's quite efficient with the power it is given. There isn't a con to this sub. If you are looking for shatter your windshield bass,.. Then just go up the JL Line to their W3-W7 models, and you likely want to go a bit larger 12-15" -- Be prepared to put much more amp on it though.

Got two of these is an extended cab truck, sealed enclosure underneath my back seat. Forward facing(sounds much better than down-firing i.m.o.). I have them powered by a Kicker CX600.1 and the sound quality is great. Hits every note really well, no problems with distorting. If you're looking for teeth rattling bass you want a higher end JL, but when it comes to sound quality, tight and clean bass, this is as good as it gets.

Pros: Value-sound quality

Cons: None

I have to admit, this is my first subwoofer I have owned. I have two of these in a "FoxBox" 210 downfire enclosure. Although this was my first car audio installation I have ever done, I do know a lot about sound quality from studio recording. If you look at the freq response, it's as low as 25Hz... right on the threshold of the human ear. It picks up those lows very articulately....

The low pass filter makes things as easy as spinning a dial (if for some reason you can't set it with your radio). And the remote bass option would definitely be useful although I haven't bought it yet (I'm kind of stingy).

I listen to a lot of hard rock and metal, and this sub delivers exactly what I need. I run these through a kicker CX600.1 in parallel (of course), and the output is PLENTY. Clean, punchy bass is what I like, and this sub gives me exactly that.

JLs are notoriously expensive, but this particular model wasn't pricey at all and the brand definitely lived up to its name. Five stars.

Pros: Value vs Performance

Cons: None yet

I'm not sure if there is a better value out there for a subwoofer. Running off of a 200 watt amp and a ported box this kicks HARD in my Honda civic. I've always preferred "smaller" sub setup a and this is perfect for what I need. Very clean sounding sub with very little distortion.

I have used many subs from many different companies over the past 13 years, but for the price and power rating this one is hard to beat. I installed 1 sub in a small (built to JL spec .65) sealed box in a 1993 camaro powered by a mtx terminator 200/2. Im no newbie to car stereo but even I was suprised by the deep and powerful output of this"small" set up on 150 watts..My goal of adding some quality low range to my system was met. Thumbs up JL!

Pros: Price, Design, Performance, Shallow frame and magnet structure...a plus for truck installs where space is limited.

Cons: none

I have 4 of these in my Tahoe. They are in a ported rear facing box. I am using an old Rockford Fosgate 551s to power ALL four of these woofers. That amp equates to 140-150 watts RMS each speaker. This is all the power you need for these. I get a smile at every red light, or the occasional nod of disapproval (I enjoy the hate nod more, ha). If you want a great sub for a great price you just found it.

Pros: JL, inexpensive, great quality, lightweight!

Cons: I didn't buy 8 of them.

After extensive research, and not listening to the subs prior to purchase, I am 100 percent satisfied with these subs. I had 2 of them installed in my 2012 Silverado and the truly bump. I play country music to punk rock music, and all sound awesome; especially the double kick in punk rock. They are responsive and clear. Great buy

Pros: slim fit

Cons: ?

All good

For the price, this is a great Sub! Very crisp and hits the low tones. Make sure and follow the box and amp guidelines and you will not be disappointed. I put these in a Tundra Crew Max and it is plenty of bass for my taste. I'm not shaking the neighbors, but listening to rock and rap, it sounds great. I will continue to buy JL.

Pros: JL build quality is high as expected. Sounds great and not bad size requirements for box.

Cons: Not the coolest looking sub, but they're hidden behind my back seat.

I bought 2 of these to replace my 12 year old JL Audio 10's I previously had been listening too. I had bought them 12 years ago from a local audio store. The new JL 10's are a great improvement over my older 10w0's, and I am glad I upgraded. I was planning to purchase the 10W3 10's but I am glad I went with these instead and saved $140 each.. They may be cheaper price wise, but thats no relation to the quality and sound these speakers produce. I am actually thinking about buying another set of these for my other car, yes they are great!

Pros: Great quality, Great sound, Great Price

Cons: The speaker holes in my sealed box which my old JL 10's were taken out of, the holes were too big for the new 10's. It wouldn't allow you to put all the securing screws holding the speaker in. No matter I am upgrading to another box also. Just be aware if your replacing old 10's the hole size may be different. Not a product problem though.

Amazing sound.

This sub has great sound for all ranges of music. It will hit hard if you want it to, but I like it tight and clean---not overpowering. It hits notes that I didn't know where there with my Rockford. Best of all it fits in a small enclosure, so it doesn't take much space. The price is also a steal for a quality JL sub.

Pros: Tight sound, No distortion, Good range and compact.

Cons: Maybe just the dull appearance if you care about that, but it's in your trunk anyways.

We've verified that these enclosures are a good match for this subwoofer.
It's critical to have good wire, and none is included with the sub.

I wish I could remember exactly how much room it took. Even though I don't recall the exact number, I do remember initially thinking that there was going to be enough room looking at the specs, but then I still end up having to buy a spacer to make them fit. I know the lack of exact details doesn't help as much, but that's what I recall. [ JUSTIN  Jul 30, 2014 ]
Mine are in a custom JL ported box so I don't know sorry. [ REGINALD O  Jul 30, 2014 ]
As long as you have a half inch between the bottom of the box and magnet you should be fine [ MARTIN  Jul 29, 2014 ]
If you are looking for an amp to only push the subs then you want to look for an amp that ranges between 500 and 600 watts. [ TOMMY G  Apr 29, 2014 ]
My one is currently wired into a 420w channel in my amp and that's too much power. I had to adjust the settings and ride around for awhile to get the sound just right. It states that the Recommended Power Range is 100-300w and that's the truth. So for two I say nothing over 800w. [ ADAM  Apr 29, 2014 ]
They have a 250 watt max I would run a 500-1 mono amp and bride the speakers so that both recieve 250 watts a speaker.wich will run these at the optimal power setting with blowing them [ CHRISTOPHER  Apr 29, 2014 ]
something rated at about 500watts rms for 2. why are you using two seperate amps? i would recomend an alpine pdx-v9. [ JASON S  Apr 29, 2014 ]
At minimum I would suggest an amp that pushes 700 watts RMS.. it's always better to go with something a little more powerful than the sub so that you are actually powering the sub.. I had one of these in a sealed box with an 350 watt RMS amp it was an MTX mono block. No complaints. [ JEREMY  Apr 28, 2014 ]
At minimum I would suggest an amp that pushes 200 watts RMS.. it's always better to go with something a little more powerful than the sub so that you are actually powering the sub.. I had one of these in a sealed box with an 150 watt RMS amp it was an MTX mono block. No complaints. [ JEREMY  Apr 28, 2014 ]
I have a 300 watt amp powering one of these and it sounds great. Amp is turned up barely over half way. I would think a 400 to 500 watt amp should work well unless you like a heavy amount of bass. Thanks [ MATTHEW J  Apr 28, 2014 ]
