Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Very nice quality!
JL Audio's ProWedge enclosure provides the ideal home for their W7 Anniversary Edition subwoofer, a hand-assembled sealed housing that allows the sub to produce bass notes with impressive depth, detail and clarity. This versatile sub will enhance the impact of any type of music, from the subtle thrum of the stand-up bass in a jazz ensemble, to the satisfying gut punch of a rock band's kick drum.
The CLS110RG-W7AE ProWedge features a unbelievably rigid sealed enclosure, made from solid 1" thick medium-density fiberboard and optimized for the W7AE subwoofer. The glossy black laminate baffle with its embossed logos adds a touch of class, while the durable black carpet covering keeps nicks and scratches at bay. Three stylish brushed aluminum rods protect the woofer so it can deliver long-lasting bass in your vehicle. Gold-plated, five-way binding posts allow for convenient and secure hookup.
The enclosure contains one 10" W7AE subwoofer, creating premium bass with the help of six patented features and a computer-optimized motor assembly design. Match this amazing enclosure with the proper amplifier and wiring to enjoy inspiring bass — call 1-888-955-6000 if you have questions on how to power the W7 ProWedge.
Very nice quality!

Very nice quality!
Exactly what I expected Punchy and Accurate, I'm curious to see how it would sound in a ported box.
Pros: You get what you pay for.
I initially got the lower profile w3 I believe. I didn't love the sound. It seemed somehow the bass was slightly delayed in hitting, The overall range of sound was limited, which I surprisingly could notice, and specifically the sound felt mushy. These are the best words that I know how to describe it, sorry if they aren't official. I remembered maybe 15 years ago a friend with a W7 in his Explorer that was quite impressive. Even though the size was more than I wanted for the back of my car, I decided to give it a shot. I am much happier with the sub woofer. It goes down low, it's tight authoritative bass in many genres of music. I would say it's worth the loss of space in the trunk for me. Not mushy. Goes insanely loud, which I cranked down and it blends with the other speakers wonderfully.
Pros: Great range, dynamic, tight bass. Good looking package.
Cons: Not svelte per se. Heavy.
I looked at a bunch of reviews about sealed and ported boxes. I've experienced both ported and now sealed and the difference is just in your preference. JL 10" W7 sealed box was more precise and accurate compared to a ported 10" W7 boomier box. I like the sealed better it captures lows perfectly and I listen to "RAP" as well and found it still performed exceptionally. With JL don't get hung up on it being sealed, the quality your getting is of no other sub i ever listened to. It's size is space saving and more than enough bass for my setup.
Pros: Small enough to still have trunk space, bass you can feel for such a small sub. Words can't explain the lows and how deep this sub gets. And the build and look of this box is perfect.
Cons: It's small (compared to ported boxes) yet very heavy.
This is a great sub if your looking for great sound quality,, very tight and hits very hard ,,,have it running off a JL XD600/1 so pushing 500watts RMS at 3 ohm,,plus its a very nice box and the black face plate looks very sweet
Pros: does not take up much room at all ,,hits very hard ,,look and build quality is top notch

Enclosure: The ProWedge sealed enclosure is optimized for the 10" W7AE-3 subwoofer and built from 1" MDF. It's finished in high-grade black carpet with a gloss-black laminate front baffle trim featuring engraved "JL Audio" and "W7" logos. Three solid, brushed aluminum rods provide stylish woofer protection.
Terminal: The enclosure features a pair of gold plated 5-way binding posts on the left side. They will accept pin connectors, spade connectors, single banana plugs, dual banana plugs, and bare up to 10 gauge.
W-Cone: The JL Audio 10W7AE-3 subwoofer utilizes a W-Cone design, a unit-body cone assembly, that delivers astonishing cone stiffness with minimal mass. The shape also provides incredible torsional rigidity, which is critical to maintaining voice coil alignment at the suspension limits. In order to gain maximum stiffness, two lightweight mineral-filled polypropylene skins are bonded together at the perimeter and the center of the assembly. The lower skin's cross-section is shaped like a "W", and provides incredible rigidity when bonded to the dished upper skin.
OverRoll Surround: OverRoll Surround technology allows JL Audio to make full use of the entire footprint of the speaker, placing the surround further to the outside than in a conventional woofer. This means the 10W7AE-3 subwoofer can use a large roll for all its benefits without sacrificing cone area. By maximizing the effective piston/total footprint ratio, the subwoofer can deliver more output for a given excursion and outside frame diameter. This means that the prodigious excursion advantage of the 10W7AE-3 can be put to full use enhancing output, rather than making up for lost piston area. This technology also provides a geometry advantage on the outside edge of the surround roll, allowing for more linear operation. A further benefit is that the mounting holes are inherently sealed by the surround, resulting in an improved box seal.
Ultra-Long Voice Coil: The 10W7AE-3 subwoofer features an ultra-long voice coil to allow extreme linear excursion, phenomenal power handling and control. The massive surface area of these coils is excellent for heat dissipation, while the huge winding height provides the necessary motivational force to achieve the huge excursion of the design. Considering their size, the 10W7AE-3 voice coils are extremely light in weight. The voice coil uses aluminum-alloy wire (instead of conventional copper) and a specific winding method to achieve JL Audio's desired electrical properties. The light weight of the coils helps keep the overall moving mass down at manageable levels, which is extremely important for efficiency and sound quality reasons.
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.
Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 10W7AE-3 motor force remains linear over a very long range of excursion. It also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is vastly reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
Forced Air Cooled: The elevated frame design of the 10W7AE-3 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.
Radial Cross-Drilled Pole Piece: This innovative venting system enhances thermal dissipation and power handling by directing air flow onto the voice coil former and works in conjunction with the Elevated Frame cooling technology to effectively remove heat from the voice coil. This improves power handling and reduces power compression effects, leading to more linear performance.
Progressive-Roll Spider: The large, progressive-roll spider provides precise control and motor/voice coil alignment without limiting excursion prematurely.
Plateau-Reinforced Spider Attachment: The lower reinforcement collar, attached to the voice coil former of the W7, incorporates a plateau design dedicated to relieving material stress and providing a solid attachment surface for the inner edge of the spider. The plateau of the reinforcement collar provides excellent contact area for adhesive therefore creating an incredibly strong bond at a critical point within the driver.
Co-Extruded Double Lead Wires: The extruded casing and carefully engineered attachments ensure controlled lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands. Two conductors are used per connection for ample current carrying capability.
