Boom and Pound

4 of these puppies in a custom enclosure built to JL spec by CheRRyman Customs. Wow! Loud and clean. These are a very accurate sounding sub that seem unforgiving. Tuned to the right specs you will have an almost violent air moving machine behind you. I am going to spend the next few dyas

Pros: Loud clean and accurate when feed the right amount of power. Love the look and tech added to these woofers. Small footprint for a variety of enclosure options in smaller areas.

Cons: None

What Else Would You Expect

I could not expect anything else than a great sounding sub. I was running a JL AUDIO JX1000 when I blew my 12" MA Audio sub, so knowing the quality of JL Audio I wanted to keep with the quality brand, so I snagged this 12W1V3-4 and boy is it solid! The sound is amazing nice deep bass no distortion and handles the amp no problem, it is only ONE sub in a sealed enclosure and it hits hard. Great design/look to go along with it. Thanks for making an affordable hard knocking sub!

Pros: Great price, easy hook up, designed for multiple enclosures, most of all hits HARD!

Cons: None yet! Hopefully never!

Nice sub overall

Not much to say really, for the price range it's a bit steep for the performance you get but it can handle 300 watts RMS no problem. Even the JL W3 doesn't actually sound or perform any better other than it can handle twice the power so keep that in mind if you want more power, you may be better off to go with a different brand.

Pros: Looks very nice, sleek. Sound quality is pretty decent. Great for smaller spaces where you want some bottom end sound quality but don't expect it to really hit.

Cons: Not that loud, performance for this price range just isn't happening here. In fact I had an infinity reference 12" that did equally as well for half the price. The Kicker L7 performed better in a larger enclosure but as with my review for it, there is a unique "growly" sound to it that some may not like not does it hit hard.

Pretty dang good

Bought this sub and hooked it up to a 500 watt Rockford Fosgate amp. It performs a lot better than I thought a single sub could do. It hits so hard that I feel like I need to find some way to reduce the amount of bass!! Its a really powerful sub. I love listening to it. It's a great buy, I bought the grill that goes along with the subwoofer and it looks really clean and it goes well in the back of my Mazda 3.

Pros: Hits hard, Always in sync with the music Looks really cool

Cons: Too expensive for a single sub, Sound quality on some songs is not all that great.

Did not disappoint

JL Audio does it again! This sub look beautiful and sounds great. Very loud and does not require a lot of power. It does take a few weeks to break in, but after that you will not be disappointed. Very solid build.

Pros: Looks great and sounds even better.

Cons: None
