About the JVC CW-DR124
Great sound, great price
Great sound, great price
You're looking for a subwoofer, but you don't have an unlimited budget. Don't sacrifice good sound for affordability; JVC's CW-DR124 gives you a dependable 12" subwoofer with the low-frequency punch you're looking for at a price that's easy on your wallet.
Built to rock, built to last
Great bass starts with great materials, so the CW-DR124 is designed around a tough polypropylene cone to pump out the bass and a treated foam surround to keep things on track. The sub's newly-designed Graduated Pleat Damper distributes stress over a wider area for durability, while the 6-layer copper voice coil dissipates heat more efficiently to keep things bumping even in long, loud music sessions. The CW-DR124 works in sealed or ported enclosures, and will handle up to 350 watts RMS power (1800 watts peak power). Its 4-ohm impedance makes it a good match for most systems.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 260 and 475 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs (but not dual), and bare wire up to 8 gauge.
Sealed Box: JVC recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume between 0.7 and 1.5 ft³, with an ideal volume of 1.0 ft³. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.
Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume ranges from 1.2 ft³ to 1.9 ft³, with the ideal size being 1.5 ft³, using a slot port measuring 12-3/4" (W) x 1-3/16" (H) x 19-11/16" (L). Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed, maximizing bass output for a given amplifier.
