Our take on the JL Audio CS112-WXv2

by John Pollard
JL Audio

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

JL quality at a great price

JL Audio built their BassWedge CS112-WXv2 enclosure to make car-rattling bass for a reasonable price, without the need for a ton of power. The enclosure's designed to match the 12" subwoofer loaded into it, so you know you'll get every ounce of performance out of this system.

 BassWedge CS112-WXv2 enclosure

An excellent combination

The CS112-WXv2 BassWedge contains one 12" WXv2 subwoofer that handles up to 200 watts RMS, loaded into a specially built sealed enclosure. You'll enjoy punchy, detailed bass without taking up too much room in your vehicle's trunk or cargo area.

Solid MDF enclosure

JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, nickel-plated push terminals, and solid internal wiring. The enclosure is finished and inspected by hand at the manufacturing facility in Florida to ensure that you get the bass that you expect from JL Audio.

Our Product Research Team

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. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Overview: The JL Audio BassWedge sealed subwoofer enclosure is designed around JL Audio's 12" WXv2 subwoofer, delivering tight, powerful bass. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has a JL AUDIO logo embroidered across the top.

Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of high current spring posts. The posts are located on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

WXv2 Woofer 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 12WXv2 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.

Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-12 grille (item number 136SGR1231, sold separately) can be added to protect the woofer cone.

2004 BMW 330I

Written By Dave, Rhode Island on Saturday, August 02, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent quality. Installed in BMW 330i with an audiocontrol signal converter and an inexpensive California Profile amp and stock CD player. Much tighter, cleaner sound than my previous bazooka 8in (which lasted for 23 years!). Not nearly as loud as the bazooka but a much cleaner and more accurate bass. Does not shake the care like the bazooka did. Will need to get the remote control for it to optimize and adjust easily but overall I'm very pleased. BMW is a tightly sealed trunk, I removed the ski-pass door to allow some bass to move into car and it works perfectly. I definitely like the quality of the sound over the bazooka. If you just want loud boomy bass, get a cheap bazooka, it you want a very nice accurate bass, get the sealed JL audio sub.
Pros:
Excellent quality product is obvious when looking at it. Excellent sound.
Cons:
It's pretty big, will take up trunk space.

1999 Honda Accord

I love this sub. It hits the lower frequencies like I wanted and gets plenty loud. The sound quality is amazing, you won't buy a better sub for the price and RMS. After finally settling on this, I decided I would buy nothing but JL subs in the future.

JL audio delivers again!

Written By Heckler!, Houston, TX on Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have this sub running off the JL audio JX250/1 amp and it sounds great. I don't need a lot of bass because it's in a Civic, and this amp/sub combo is just right. It can hit pretty hard though, although I've never turned my radio (Kenwood Excelon) up past 20. If you need a little extra bass for your ride, then this is it.
Pros:
Awesome build quality of the box, plus its small and compact and not heavy at all.
Cons:
It's a little too expensive, but it is JL audio.

2 questions already asked

I have an old 10" eclipse chrome face in the back of my 2001 Jeep grand cherokee hooked up to an ancient 250 watt amp (given to me from my uncle so i really don't know much about it). Would you recommend getting a new amp for this sub or no? [ MikeT  Mar 15, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Staff  Mar 16, 2014 ]
Will this fit either under or behind the back seat of a 2006 Sierra 1500 crew cab? [ Grady  Jan 07, 2014 ]
