JL Audio's ProWedge enclosure provides the ideal home for their W7 Anniversary Edition subwoofer, a hand-assembled sealed housing that allows the sub to produce bass notes with impressive depth, detail and clarity. This versatile sub will enhance the impact of any type of music, from the subtle thrum of the stand-up bass in a jazz ensemble, to the satisfying gut punch of a rock'n'roll kick drum.

Awesome sub, incredible enclosure

JL Audio's CLS113RG-W7AE enclosure contains one 13.5" W7AE subwoofer, which handles up to 1,500 watts RMS with the help of six patented features and a computer-optimized motor assembly design. This W7AE ProWedge features a unbelievably rigid sealed enclosure, made from solid 1" thick medium-density fiberboard and optimized for the W7AE subwoofer.

The glossy black laminate baffle with its embossed logos adds a touch of class, while the durable black carpet covering keeps nicks and scratches at bay. Three stylish brushed aluminum rods protect the woofer so it can deliver long-lasting bass in your vehicle. Gold-plated, five-way binding posts allow for convenient and secure hookup.

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.

Smooth transitions and amazing range, especially considering the sizing of this speaker. Paired with the HD1200/1 it has a very clean sound that masks it true volume. Replaced two 12w3v3 subs with this one and this is louder, cleaner, and has a much more diverse dynamic range. It did take about 18 hours of play time for it to break in and the full volume and quality to come out. Well worth the money if you want massive sound with absolute control.

Pros: Dynamic range, power handling, and sound reproduction quality.

Cons: It is massive make sure to measure your mounting location twice before ordering. Almost consider the price a con, but you do get what you pay for.

Yeah, its the biggest one they make, but after having w6 and having w7 to listen to, the w6 is noticeably more capable of high spl....But the w7 has a smoothness not often heard at the volumes it is capable of playing at.

Pros: Solid build, great sound, it says JL

Cons: Could be louder, needs an amp with reserve power (you will really need the head room of a couple hundred extra watts, if you like SQ), could make your car sink down in the back (just joke, its really heavy though)

Enclosure Features

Enclosure: The ProWedge sealed enclosure is optimized for the 13.5" W7AE subwoofer and built from 1" MDF. It's finished in high-grade black carpet with a gloss-black laminate front baffle featuring engraved JL Audio and W7 logos. Three solid, brushed aluminum rods protect the woofer cone.

Terminal: The enclosure features a pair of gold plated 5-way binding posts on the left side. They will accept pin connectors, spade connectors, single banana plugs, dual banana plugs, and bare up to 10 gauge.

Enclosure Dimensions:

  • Width: 22-1/2"
  • Height: 18-1/8"
  • Depth (including grille): 20-3/8"
  • Depth (top of enclosure): 11-3/4"
  • Depth (bottom of enclosure): 18-1/8"

Driver Features

W-Cone: The JL Audio W7AE subwoofer utilizes a W-Cone design, a unit-body cone assembly, that maximizes cone stiffness with minimal mass. The shape also provides torsional rigidity, critical to maintaining voice coil alignment at the suspension limits. In order to gain maximum stiffness, two lightweight mineral-filled polypropylene skins are bonded together at the perimeter and the center of the assembly. The lower skin's cross-section is shaped like a "W", and provides incredible rigidity when bonded to the dished upper skin.

OverRoll Surround: OverRoll Surround technology allows JL Audio to make full use of the entire footprint of the speaker, placing the surround further to the outside of the frame than in a conventional woofer. This means that W7AE subwoofer can use a large roll for all its benefits without sacrificing cone area. By maximizing the effective piston/total footprint ratio, the W7AE subwoofer can deliver more output for a given excursion and outside frame diameter. This means the excursion advantage of the W7AE can be put to full use enhancing output, rather than making up for lost piston area. This technology also provides a geometry advantage on the outside edge of the surround roll, allowing more linear operation. A further benefit is that the mounting holes are inherently sealed by the surround, resulting in an improved box seal.

Ultra-Long Voice Coil: The W7AE subwoofers feature an ultra-long voice coil to enhance linear excursion, power handling and control. The large surface area of the coil offers excellent heat dissipation, while the winding height provides the necessary motivational force to achieve the excursion of the W7AE design.

Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio's patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W7AE motors maintain linear motor force over a very long range of excursion, and also maintain a highly 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.

Forced Air Cooled: The elevated frame design of the W7AE 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.

Radial Cross-Drilled Pole Piece: This venting system enhances heat dissipation and power handling by directing air flow onto the voice coil former, working in conjunction with the Forced Air Cooling technology.

Progressive-Roll Spider: The large, progressive-roll spider provides precise control and motor/voice coil alignment without limiting excursion prematurely.

Plateau-Reinforced Spider Attachment: A derivative of JL Audio's VRC technology, this suspension attachment relieves stress from the spider material at high excursions for enhanced reliability.

Co-Extruded Double Lead Wires: The extruded casing and carefully engineered attachments ensure controlled lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands. Two conductors are used per connection for ample current carrying capability.
