Our take on the JL Audio 10WXv2

by Ken Nail
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.

Built for hard-hitting, long-lasting performance

JL Audio builds their hard-hitting WX Series subs for the long haul. Patented cooling and construction technologies allow these subs to pump out accurate, lifelike bass, while standing up to the inevitable abuse that every sub will see. Plus, JL Audio designs the sub's inner works to deliver a one-two punch of extended cone excursion and precise response.

Ideal when space is tight

The 10WXv2 works great in both sealed and ported enclosures, utilizing a polypropylene cone with a foam surround for powerful, reliable bass reproduction. The rear gasket provides improved sealing in your enclosure, while the heavy-duty 4-ohm voice coil resists breakdown under extreme conditions. The customizable trim ring lets you add a personalized look to your setup.

Features

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is a JL Audio proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the woofer's motor remains linear in motor force over a long excursion range, and maintains 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 10WXv2 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 an integrated foam rear gasket which provides an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 0.625 cubic foot sealed box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 17-1/4" W x 11" H x 9" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.)

Ported Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 1.0 cubic foot ported box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a ported box with external dimensions of 22" W x 12" H x 10-1/2" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.) A single 3" diameter x 13-1/2" long port is recommended, resulting in a tuning frequency of 35 Hz.

Just what I was looking for!

Written By 1QWK SUV, Jacksonville, FL on Monday, July 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was adding a small sub and amp to the factory BOSE system in my 2008 Trailblazer SS. I have the sub mounted in a .77 cu ft sealed box with a light layer of poly fill. Powered by an Alpine MRV-M250 (150 x 1 into 4 ohm) it has just the right amount of low end to compliment the factory system. Thea amp is installed in the storage compartment in the right rear of the truck which made it easy to tie into the factory amp for low level signal.
Pros:
Price, Performance
Cons:
Not a competition quality sub, but works great for what it is intended for.

Quite good

Still making adjustments, but it shakes the rear-view mirror even at moderate listening levels. Kind of disappears at low volumes. Would have liked a little more resolution but overall quite pleased with it.

Written By Matt C., Montpelier, ID on Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These JL Audio subs get LOUD! I have mine in a custom built vented box at 1.92 cu.ft. behind the rear seat in a 98' GMC 1500, powered by an Alpine MRX-M50 wired @ 2 ohms and these things pound! Very happy with these subs, there are some out there that have crisper sound but for the money you can't beat these.
Pros:
Loud for the money!
Cons:
Lose a little sound quality but these are alot cheaper than most subs

Great little sub

Written By Dave D, K.C. MO on Friday, February 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I don't have much experience with subwoofers, and this JL sub was the first one I've ever installed in my own vehicle. That said, it works really well. I'm just running an Alpine MRP-F250 4channel amp, with channels 3 and 4 bridged to the sub. Channels 1 and 2 power the door speakers. The sub is in a S/O Bass Bunker. After playing a lot of different music through it and getting it fine tuned, I feel like it sounds great. Nice tight punch, accurate tones. Even turned up loud though, you can barely tell there's a sub in the truck from 15 feet away. The sub itself is a lightweight....magnet is pretty small. But hey, less weight to haul around in the car all the time. This is in a 2001 Toyota 4Runner.

For comparison, my sister has an Infinity 1062w in her 4runner, powered by a Alpine MRV-F353. Our setups are very similar, except she has the better amp and the Infinity sub....and her's definitely sounds better. The overall sound quality from that infinity sub is better, and it gets WAY louder without losing quality. If you've got the amp for it, I'd get the Infinity over this JL everyday. Otherwise for low power applications, this JL is solid.
Pros:
-Affordable -Lightweight -Good for low power application
