Our take on the JL Audio HO112-W6v3

by Bob Bihlmayer
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.

Powerful output, beautiful bass

JL Audio built their High Output Enclosures to give you a great combination of high sound quality and powerful output. Engineers at JL Audio used a patented chamber-coupled port design to maximize bass production, and this unique enclosure is assembled by hand to exacting standards by the craftsmen at their Florida plant.

Tough 12" sub

The HO112-W6v3 is built around the 12" W6v3 subwoofer, which uses its rigid polypropylene cone to push plenty of air for some serious bass output. Extensive venting helps prevent thermal breakdown in the voice coil, so you'll get lasting, consistent performance. The enclosure is wired for 2-ohm total impedance and will handle up to 600 watts RMS.

Product Research

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.


H.O. Wedge Enclosure: The HO112-W6v3 enclosure is designed around JL Audio's 12W6v3 subwoofer, using V-groove MDF construction with internal bracing to ensure structural integrity. The patented, chamber-coupled port design wraps around the inner enclosure boundary and terminates just above the woofer, coupling the port output to the woofer's direct output. This also provides the necessary surface area and port length to maximize the performance of the driver. The woofer's dual 4Ω voice coils are internally wired in parallel to present a 2Ω load.

Terminal: The enclosure features one pair of 5-way binding posts on the right side. They will accept pin connectors, spade connectors, single banana plugs, dual banana plugs (standard 3/4" width), and bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Enclosure Dimensions:

  • Width: 14-3/8"
  • Height: 16-1/4"
  • Depth: 23-7/8"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have this paired with a JL Audio JX 500/1D amp in a 2011 Ford Explorer. It hits really hard and clean. I have my bass knob turned up about 1/3 and you can hear me coming from blocks away!!!
Sound quality Don't need a huge amp (it's wired at 2 ohms)
It's large but I have plenty of room so no biggie

H/O box with HD750 JL

Written By Walshie1, Sunnyvale on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
This product is loud it hits hard and clean. Deep lows and pushes a Lot of sound. All the sound I need in my c350 Mercedes gonna hav to dynamat the trunk and the doors it hits. Better and lower bass sounds than 12 twelves in my tahoe. Excellent product pair the two and JL does it again. If you want the best go with JL audio
Wide range of bass hard and deep it's what you want in a subwoofer. Bigger sound out of 12 than I've ever heard.
Large box but well worth it
