Our take on the JL Audio 10W0v3-4

by John Pollard
JL Audio

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.

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.

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.

sound so big out of a small sub

Written By Anonymous, Romeo MI on Friday, September 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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 was a little skeptical of buying the lower end of JL but i figured i'd give it a try. I tell you what, these two 10" are so clean, crisp and punchy. i have them in a ported box and they sound very clean. i'm running a kicker 600w mono in a 07 tahoe. Couldnt be more happy with the sound.

Just like my old 10W0

Written By Kazuken, Saint Louis on Friday, May 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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 Still has it!

Written By Jared G, Birmingham, AL on Thursday, January 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

2 JL W0 10"

Written By Jesse, Jackson, MS on Sunday, January 05, 2014
 
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

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.

Value vs Performance

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Insane sound for the price!

Written By Art, Sunbury, Ohio on Monday, May 20, 2013
 
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:
?

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.

Great Subs!

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.

Written By brs, Auburn. Wa on Tuesday, April 03, 2012
 
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.

2 questions already asked

What is the minimum top mount depth for the box? The sub specs say its' mount depth is 4 15/16 and I have a box that is 5 1/4.... is that enough? Thanks! [ Hunter  Jul 29, 2014 ]

  • 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 ]
What is the recommend size amp to power 2 of these in a sealed enclosure box . Just these two subs seperate from the rest of the car system ??? I will be running a seperate amp for the front and rears . [ Jason  Apr 28, 2014 ]
7 answers
  • 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 ]
