Thumps! I have it installed in an 08 Hemi Grand Cherokee hooked to the stock touch screen with the Boston Accoustic stock amplified system. You can literally hear me from a 1/4 mile away. Couldnt believe the sound from one 12, but then again, it is a JL.

Decent bass, but not overwhelming. I previously owned a TW3 10" and it hit harder. Will need to evaluate after the break-in period.

Pros: Compact size, clean looking install

Cons: Not much punch for a 12"

Not what I expected bass is not that great coming from trunk of my challanger. I bought a audio control line converter lci6 added all new highs though it would help but bass is not that great wish I could exchange it for something with more bass

Pros: Cheap

This Sub-woofer exceed my expectations! It is just what I needed for the extra bump without being obnoxious. I have this installed in a 2011 GMC sierra crew cab and the sound is perfect. I never thought id be satisfied with 1 woofer by the fact I've always had 2 12 inch subs ported but this powered sub-woofer is suberb! You cant go wrong with JL audio, Period.

Pros: Clean crisp powerful bass that is not obnoxious but just right.

Cons: My seat in my 2011 GMC crew cab will not fold down over it but it leave the other seat in the crew cab available so i can still seat 4 in my truck, small sacrifice for big sound from such a compact 12-inch woofer. Besides that no complaints in performance!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I just want to start off with you get what you pay for. This thing rocks I mean clean tight car pounding Awesomeness in a single teck filled bass box. LOL I am 43 years old grew up around car audio always installed tem myself. But I am older now but still have the bug and its not that big at all 400 watt RMS amp in it. loved it so much I bought another one a year latter along with a morel 4 channel jl audio components front and rear (yes and rear) The jl audio twk-88 (now rear makes sense right?) Well its still under construction.

Pros: Small-Powerful Easy to install can hook up to stock radio w/o rcs with supplied adapter made in the US quality products from jl always sounds awesome

Cons: I don't like the power block that you connect the power ground remote to it. I find it very close together I guess I did not trim the insulation right so it sparked a bit not that you could see but I heard it so I tripped the breaker under the hood re cut some fresh ends and used some spray electrical tape Awesome

I selected this packaged setup due to space concerns, and it being about the smallest ported 12" subwoofer I could find. I honestly expected to sacrifice significant performance for the "all-in-one" and small nature of this sub, but was I wrong. This produces a tremendous amount of bass. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of this woofer.

Big bass in such a tiny box. Awesome!

Ken from Annapolis, MD on 12/12/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've got it sitting around 40% gain and this thing bumps louder than I imagined it would. As you can see from the video I was able to wedge the box closest to the rear seat as possible freeing up all kinds of much needed trunk space. Plus the trunk in the genesis worked out great, tapped directly into the external amplifiers sub-woofer speaker wire and the battery is right there for a quick easy connect. It has an amazing ability to deliver studio bass in a small package. I mostly listen to metal and rock and was surprised that a ported box was able to delivery quick and heavy hitting bass. i would definitely recommend this sub.

Pros: Small box. Great response and delivery for all types of music. Hard hitting when you need it. Convenient built in amp with multiple settings.

Cons: None so far.

Good day ! I recently purchased this subject and amp comb. I wasn't expecting much out of it just a little Bass. Instead I was pleasantly surprised with the JL sub and amp combo. What can I say it's strong it hits! I should have known better after all it is JL or talking about. If you're thinking about a sub and amp combo. Look no further! The future is here and now! It's the best bang for the buck ! It will not out preform 4 12's but it easily sounds like two ! You will not be disappointed!

Pros: Easily installed and removed. Great price for a hard hitting sub and amp. Superior build quality. Doesn't take up much space.

Cons: There are No cons for me . I got more Bass then I thought I was going to get. Extremely pleased

Wanted something more mild compared to my two 12 JL W1 I have in my Honda Civic . So I got this for my 2 door Tahoe. I have it installed with an epicenter. Speaker sound great and are what I wanted. Bass hits to where widows rattle if u need/like that kind of thing. :-)

Pros: Compact all in one set up. Sound. Light. Sound like 2 speakers instead of 1.

Cons: More watts would be nice.

Great Sub woofer Very Loud for Size

Rigoberto R from California on 8/27/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It really beats like a Champ Big Sound for a Small Box I've seen much bigger boxes and much less sound. These are serious and Great At the current state for powered speaker subwoofer boxes. These are all the best. Better than if you did it yourself. I cant find better anywhere right now.

Pros: Its Size to and weight give out tremendous bass. This could work in any small car and you could always add another box to match it and get pretty good sound. Its not weak and it is kinda middleweight in power but it sounds really good. You could get louder but unless your doing it for profit. It is not worth blowing your ear drums.

Cons: Its only 400 rms watts. Im sure they could build more powerful powered speaker boxes. But they haven't had to. And have just begun to do this. The Future is bright. I am only saying that they could do this with more powerful subs and speakers that they already sell. For Now this will hold since I cant find better powered boxes anywhere. But I see a future where these packages are more common and more powerful and maybe you can customize it from the factory.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The ACP112LG-TW1 MicroSub+ is a compact powered subwoofer, useful in vehicles with limited space. The ported enclosure is loaded with one 12TW1-0.25 12" low impedance subwoofer (0.25Ω) and a 400 watt RMS class-D amplifier. The amp uses JL Audio's exclusive DCD amplifier technology, combining direct power conversion (no conventional switching power supply) with an ultra-high current output section. The result is an efficient design (91-94%) with very little heat generated.

Enclosure Design: The enclosure features MDF (medium-density fiberboard), constructed using CNC woodworking equipment, and covered with high-grade automotive carpeting. The driver is protected by a black steel-mesh grille. The port and amplifier panel are both on the same side of the enclosure.

Flared Port: The enclosure has a side-firing flared slot-port. The flared slot-port design minimizes turbulence and improves fidelity.

Power/Ground Plug: The power, ground, and remote turn-on wires attach to a removable terminal block; easily unplugged so the subwoofer can be removed when you need more storage space. Each terminal is a screw clamp that will accept up to 8 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge power and ground recommend).

Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line level (RCA) or speaker level signal. A 12" speaker level input harness is included.

Remote Level Control: An optional RBC-1 wired Remote Bass Control (item number 136RBC1, sold separately) allows bass level adjustment from the front of your vehicle.

Controls:

  • Input Sensitivity: rotary control; variable from 70 mV to 1.4 V for the RCA inputs and 280 mV to 5.4 V for the speaker level inputs
  • Turn-On Mode: three position switch:
    • REM: amp turns on when +12 volts DC is applied to the remote terminal
    • DC: the amp turns on when a DC offset voltage is detected on the speaker level inputs
    • Signal: the amp turns on when an audio signal is detected on the speaker level inputs, turns off after 30 seconds without an input signal
  • Crossover: rotary control; the crossover point is continuously variable from 50 Hz to 200 Hz; the slope is 12 dB/octave and the low-pass crossover is always engaged
  • Polarity: two position switch; allows you to reverse the phase of the subwoofer (0°, 180°)

Protection Circuit: The amp is equipped with thermal protection circuit; it will shut down if it overheats.

Dimensions:

  • Width: 23-3/4"
  • Height: 15-3/4"
  • Depth:
    • 9-1/4" (enclosure)
    • 10-1/4" (including grille)

Sound quality [ Kayla  Jul 18, 2018 ]
A
I needed a compact woofer to place in my 2003 Chrysler Sebring for a good price. I looked around and knew I could get a truck like box. I went online searched around, read reviews, looked an youtube videos and this one just stuck out for me. A bit pricey, but it was all in one. A 12'' sub, with a ported enclosure, small size box, and powerful built in amp. Mannnnnnnnnnn this thing slumps!! It was the best choice I ever made for my system. [ Donald  Aug 18, 2017 ]

Had this professionally installed in my 2014 jeep grand cherokee overland. When installed was set to lowest gain and tuned. Has JL remote bass knob installed witch was never turned up more than 3/4 . Ran for about 2 months and the speaker just blew. Why would it blow so fast ?

Ive had mine for a little over a year and turn it up as much as sonically pleasing as i can so its not a bad product. You either got a dud or was installed incorrectly, thats why i only install hardware myself. Since its a built-in amp it shouldve been a good match with the sub. The only thing i could think of was that it was the wrong guage wire running to the battery. But i think theres a 1 year with the sub. Might wanna check that out.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

If you lay the JL box down it should. I have a 1997 Buick Riviera which has a pretty small trunk. I ended up laying the box down at the very back of the trunk and I still have enough room to get groceries with no problem. You should be impressed with the sound that the sub produces it sounds very good in my trunk! I can only imagine in an open truck cab

Will this outperform the ACP208LG-W3v3? Which will hit harder and deeper the single 12 TW1 at 400w or the dual 8 W3v3 at 250w each. I currently have the twin 8 but thinking to swap for the 12.
