About the JL Audio 10W6v3-D4

Bass that means business

JL Audio's celebrated W6v3 subwoofers deliver knockout low end with incredible accuracy. The 10W6v3-D4 10" subwoofer uses a tough, mineral-filled polypropylene cone that offers incredible strength without the extra bulk that can slow woofer response. JL Audio conducted extensive research to develop a motor structure that operates efficiently and precisely, so this sub can deliver powerful, reliable bass while handling up to 600 watts RMS. Exclusive cone-bonding assemblies, advanced cooling systems, and a highly stable spider attachment enhance reliability and promote long performance life.

Pole-venting helps the sub stay cool when you turn the volume up.

Precision-crafted low end

The sub's solid cast-alloy basket allows your W6v3 sub to handle big-time power without any distortion-causing flexing. A sophisticated suspension system promotes linear cone movement for greater accuracy. The simple terminal jumper wiring system allows you to set the subwoofer's impedance to draw maximum power from your amplifier, or to design a multi-sub setup.

Get the sound and look you want

The elegant JL Audio medallion on the front shows the competition you mean business. Go for a special look with the removable black trim ring, which can be painted to match your installation theme. The 10W6v3-D4 works best in a compact enclosure, so you can get great bass in some tight places.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: Due to the 10W6v3-D4's dual 4 ohm voice coils, the subwoofer can be configured as a 2-ohm (voice coils wired in parallel) or 8-ohm (voice coils wired in series) driver. The included jumper wires allow easy adjustment from one configuration to the other (the factory jumper position is 2-ohm).

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 10W6v3-D4 motor remains linear over a long excursion range, and also 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.

Pole-Vent Airflow Control (PVAC): The bullet-shaped structure inside the pole-vent directs airflow and increases air velocity to effectively reduce voice coil temperature, leading to improved fidelity and reliability.

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.

Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame design of the 10W6v3-D4 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.

Customizable Trim Ring: The woofer has a removable ring made of black ABS plastic which can be painted to match the installation theme and create a personalized look. You can purchase an optional mesh grille insert specifically designed to fit into the inner diameter of the trim ring (item number 136SGR106, sold separately).

Engineered Lead Wire System: JL Audio's engineered flying lead-wires have carefully engineered entry and exit support structures molded into the terminals and the voice coil collar and are jacketed to further reduce the likelihood of shorting and fatigue. The result is predictable high-excursion lead-wire behavior with long term reliability, and none of the compromises inherent to a woven-in lead wire system (when attached or woven into the spider material, lead-wires can alter the spider's motion, leading to asymmetrical spider behavior).

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Enclosure: JL Audio recommends a sealed box size of 0.628 ft³ (0.55 ft³ net, plus the sub's 0.078 ft³ displacement). A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 12-1/2" W x 12-1/2" H x 10-1/2" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, subtract 1/4" from each dimension.)

Ported Enclosure: The ported box size JL Audio recommends is 0.828 ft³ (0.75 ft³ net, plus the sub's 0.078 ft³ displacement). The recommended slot port is 10-7/8" x 1-3/8" x 27-5/8", resulting in a tuning frequency of 39 Hz and a -3dB point of 33 Hz.

Love JL. I've had the same pair of 10W3v3 since they came out in 06. They still work great today. But I'm upgrading my audio system for my truck and I believe the W6s give you the best bang for your buck. There isn't a better $500 speaker out there. [ MICHAEL  Jul 22, 2017 ]

Mix of quality, power, and price. [ Kevin  May 31, 2017 ]

Best sound quality period ! [ Terrell  May 09, 2017 ]

Some good bass [ Sostenes Govea  Mar 08, 2017 ]

I chose this originally for its dual voice coil and sound. It's some time tuff to tell how a sub will do in "your car" as versus the store's 'sound room'. It was a good choice! I listen to nearly everything; I mostly am rock and metal, my kids have added rap and hip hop to our musical pleasure and this sub handles it ALL! Clear and definite "bump" with my sealed box, I'd love to hear it in a properly tuned, ported though. I'm sure it would would do well. [ Michael  May 22, 2016 ]

Q
I have a Jl rd 1000/1 amp for two jl 10w6v3-4d subs I would like to run them on 1ohm what amp do you recomend ?

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.

Would 400 watts push this 10 fine? Or does it really need a little more?

Q
Can one of these subwoofers be wired down to 1 ohm?
[ Larry  Feb 13, 2016 ]
4 answers
A
No these subs are designed for about 600 watts and I recommend the xd600/1v2 to push it at 2ohms.
[ WILLARD W  Feb 14, 2016 ]
A
Can't do it with one.... but can with two
[ CHRISTOPHER  Feb 13, 2016 ]
A
No, these are dual 4ohm coils. You can get it down to a 2ohm load. You could wire 2 of these subs to get 1ohm. You have to have a serious amp to handle a 1ohm load.
[ Marc  Feb 13, 2016 ]
A
Hi Larry, This sub can only be wired in 2 or 8 ohm configurations. The only way to get it down to 1 ohm would be to get two of them and wire them in parallel. I hope this helps. Mike A. Katy, TX
