JL Audio's Evolution™ ZR series component speakers will make your music sound its very best, whether you like rap, rock, reggae, or classical. JL Audio obsessed over every little detail of their ZR series components, so these speakers will reproduce the most complex musical passages with lifelike accuracy, even in the unforgiving mobile environment.
The ZR800-CW 8" component woofer can perform one of two roles in your car's audio system — you can use it as a powerful midbass driver in a 4-way component system with bass, midbass, midrange, and high frequencies amplified separately, or employ it as a subwoofer for tight, accurate deep notes. The ZR800-CW works in both sealed and vented enclosures, as well in free-air applications as a rear deck or door speaker. JL Audio designed this versatile speaker to deliver the best sound reproduction possible, with plenty of detail within its supple low tones.
The ZR800-CW features a cast aluminum woofer basket that incorporates JL Audio's advanced cooling technologies to keep the heat out during heavy play. The sub's mineral-filled polypropylene cone and Santoprene™ surround work to deliver sonically neutral performance without sacrificing strength. The optimized motor structure ensures reliable linearity for pristine sound, and high-temperature voice coils allow this speaker to plumb great depths without melting down or introducing distortion. JL Audio includes a stylish grille to protect the driver and give your system a classy look.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
