Our take on the JL Audio CS210-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 CS210-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 two 10" subwoofers loaded into it, so you know you'll get every ounce of performance out of this system.

An excellent combination

The CS210-WXv2 BassWedge contains two 10" WXv2 subwoofers that together handle up to 400 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

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 two of JL Audio's 10" WXv2 (4Ω) subwoofers, 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 subwoofers are internally wired in parallel to a single terminal, presenting a 2Ω load to the amplifier. 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 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.

Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-10 grilles (item number 136SGR1031, sold separately) can be added to protect the woofer cones.

These subs fit great behind rear seat of 2008 Jeep JK Unlimited. Driven by Alpine MRV500 amp these subs really add solid clean bass. From Country to Rock to Rap. These JL subs are fantastic! These really completed my system: Alpine CDE153BT head unit Alpine MRV350 amp driving Polk component DXI speakers in dash and roll bar
Pros:
Loud solid clean bass, solidly built enclosure

Packs a lot of punch, but somewhat large and design flaws

Written By Ezra, Broomfield, CO on Friday, May 24, 2013
 
This sub sounds amazing if you don't install it as JL Audio recommends.

JL Audio designed this as a front-facing sub. It sounds fine in this configuration: very punchy, decently deep base. But if you want it to truly perform, face it downward. This gives a MUCH deeper sound. You'll notice an immediate difference.

The only problem with this is that the edges of the box give roughly 1/4" of clearance from the speakers to the floor, which could cause damage to the speaker as it travels. I spoke with JL about installing "feet" onto the sub, and they said it was a good idea to avoid damage by facing it downward. $5 in parts and about a half-hour to install. I used four rubber feet intended for the legs of a folding chair, four 3/4" PVC pipe caps, and four #10 1/2" wood screws. Drilled a hole through the caps, ran the screw into the hole, and screwed the caps to each corner of the sub, 1" from each side. Then popped the rubber feet onto the caps and I was done - I now had an extra inch to inch and a half of clearance to the floor - plenty of room to travel, and maybe even enough for the grilles that JL recommended. (Speaking of which, Crutchfield lists wrong grille!) If you mod your sub as I did, stay at the corners and you shouldn't hit any wires. Remove woofers (allen wrench needed) to be sure - I did.

If you don't feel like going to the trouble, you can still face it downward - it just might not last as long. Great sub though - fast, deep, and loud.
Pros:
- Fast response - Deep sound - Nice and punchy, not too boomy - Easy install if you don't modify it: insert wires and place it where you want. Done! - Reasonably attractive in the trunk/hatch area - Flat profile, rather than angled - easy to set things on
Cons:
- Performs better when facing downward, but JL didn't leave enough clearance to do so safely - modification is required. - Very large if you need trunk space, lack of angled back means some space is lost behind it when placed behind an angled seat. - Crutchfield is recommending the wrong grilles - use SGRU-10, NOT SGR-10W3v3/W1v2, according to JL Audio. Rated "Ease of Use" with 3 stars instead of 5 due to modifications necessary to get the best sound out of the sub.

Great product but just don't hit the depth of base I was hoping for.
Pros:
Fits in almost any place you want it! Looks great, and sounds clean.
Cons:
Base depth just don't hit as deep as other 10" subs I've had in the past I would recommend going with 12" or 13" JL subs!! They are much better.

Awesome for OEM upgrades

Written By Paulie from Jersy, Central NJ on Tuesday, July 31, 2012
 
I purchased this sub box along with an XD300 amp last year to add some bass to my factory 2011 Buick LaCrosse's stereo. Fortunately you can easily add such an upgrade as long as a power cable can be run - jumped one of the rear speakers for signal and off we went. As it is a 10" sealed box, the bass is tight and quick, not like the typical ported 12" or 15" sloppy subs one might buy. Works great with all music - electronic, rock, jazz...
Pros:
Adds another octave of bass to weak factory radios, not too big or heavy, good looking box.
Cons:
Doesn't go down to 20hz - expected from a 10" sub, power handling is only 400w - but that is fine in a smaller car.

JL Audio CS210-WXv2

Written By RTSM, San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday, May 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I needed a sub to improve my stock Lexus ML sound system, the ML system already has good highs, lows and spacial sound but lacks bass to round out the sound. I wanted great bass without the need to crank the volume high. I installed a RF PBR500x1 & a Audio control LC2i, in testing several subs this model won out for the best match to the ML system. I tried the JL HO 10" ported sub that could easily handle the power fed to it, the subsonic characteristics just shook the car, definetly a a high output sub but it's output was more in the 60-80 hz rate which left a gap to the ML system which I believe drops off at about 100 or so hz. I then tried this sub and it fit perfectly sonically with the ML system providing more mid-bass punch that matched great with the ML system. This sub cannot handle massive amounts of power (+500wts) but is perfect for my needs, great mid-low bass to round out the stock system with no gaps in the sonic range. I can adjust the lower sub notes via the remote dial I have for my RockFord Fosgate amp that increases the 80hz notes to overcome the tuning of this sub box but have to be careful at the higher volumes. Note that this sub is probably not for the set of folks who want a sub that puts out the loud, what I call "hum" type of bass but for the money fits perfectly for those who want a good quality addition to your stock system, also note the size of this box is very compact, amazing what JL has engineered in such a small size, very satisfied.
Pros:
Great bang (bump) for your buck, a well constructed quality product, looks good, compact size, sound quality (mid-low bass range), good punchy bass
Cons:
Has power limitations expected from a sub at this price range and form factor, needs just a bit more low end sound

2 questions already asked

Is this set up for a 2 channel amp or 1 channel? [ Josh  Aug 27, 2014 ]
7 answers
  • they have only a single set of connectors so a 1- channel amp will be fine. I have mine hooked to a moderate power supply and I love the tightness and solid hits. sounds great from country to pop to rap. [ DAVID   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • The impedence of this dual sub setup is 2-ohm so you could either take a 2-ch amp & bridge it to get the 2-ohms or just go with a mono 2-ohm amp which is what I did. I have the subs down-firing & it works very well. These are great subs. [ DAVID   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • This unit has a 1 channel set-up [ MICHAEL R   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • A 2 channel amp and one channel are similar. You can either use a 2 channel and bridge it to a one channel or a mono block amp. [ MICHAEL   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • It can be run on either kind of amp but it only has one set of terminals on the box [ STEPHEN P   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • It can be for either a one channel or two channel it's really your preference [ DARNELL   Aug 27, 2014 ]
  • 1 Channel [ Phil   Aug 27, 2014 ]
What amp would best suit these subs? I'm looking for an Alpine amp and I would prefer something of decent-high quality that won't be too expensive ($200-400). It doesn't have to be an alpine amp though. [ Grant  May 23, 2014 ]
3 answers
  • I was in your shoes about a year ago with these same Subs. I went with an Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack 45W x 4 for my 4 JBL speakers & then the ALPINE MRP-M500 300W x 1 mono amp for my JL 10's. I have these in a '92 BMW convertible with the sub box turned over so the subs are "down-firing"... it sounds AWESOME. [ DAVID   May 27, 2014 ]
  • alpine MRX M55 Mono Amp Is A Good Amp For Those Subwoofers. Its 550 Watts RMS. ITS 1 To 2 Ohms Stable. [ DARNELL   May 23, 2014 ]
  • 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. [ Greg Staff  May 23, 2014 ]
