About the JL Audio ZR800-CW
JL Audio's Evolution™ ZR series component speakers will make your music sound its very best, whether you like rap, rock, reggae, or classical. JL Audio obsessed over every little detail of their ZR series components, so these speakers will reproduce the most complex musical passages with lifelike accuracy, even in the unforgiving mobile environment.
The ZR800-CW 8" component woofer can perform one of two roles in your car's audio system — you can use it as a powerful midbass driver in a 4-way component system with bass, midbass, midrange, and high frequencies amplified separately, or employ it as a subwoofer for tight, accurate deep notes. The ZR800-CW works in both sealed and vented enclosures, as well in free-air applications as a rear deck or door speaker. JL Audio designed this versatile speaker to deliver the best sound reproduction possible, with plenty of detail within its supple low tones.
The ZR800-CW features a cast aluminum woofer basket that incorporates JL Audio's advanced cooling technologies to keep the heat out during heavy play. The sub's mineral-filled polypropylene cone and Santoprene™ surround work to deliver sonically neutral performance without sacrificing strength. The optimized motor structure ensures reliable linearity for pristine sound, and high-temperature voice coils allow this speaker to plumb great depths without melting down or introducing distortion. JL Audio includes a stylish grille to protect the driver and give your system a classy look.

Overview: The JL Audio ZR800-CW is a powerful 8-inch component woofer designed to operate in automotive sound systems reproducing the frequency range between 30Hz and 400Hz. It can be used in infinite-baffle or enclosed applications as a dedicated mid-bass speaker or as a subwoofer.
Polypropylene Cone: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speaker features a low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a santoprene surround. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral midbass without any coloration. The woofer is also equipped with a progressive roll spider.
DMA-Optimized Motor System: Within the DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis) optimized motor structure, the CNC-machined back plate, pole piece, and top plate elements offer a degree of precision not possible with conventional forged or stamped parts. The ultra-thin gauge voice coil (1.75") is treated with proprietary, high-temperature adhesives and wound on an aluminum former to further improve thermal transfer, reliability, and linearity at high power levels.
Cast Alloy Basket: The ZR800-CW features a proprietary cast alloy woofer basket, designed to provide maximum rear open area while also incorporating JL Audio's patented "Elevated Frame" cooling system. This cooling technology, also found on W7 and W6v2 subwoofers, allows air to flow directly across the top plate and onto the voice coil windings to greatly improve linearity at all listening levels.
Mounting Ring and Grille: The JL Audio ZR800-CW comes supplied with an ABS mounting ring and metal mesh grille.
Infinite Baffle: The JL Audio ZR800-CW can be installed as a free-air driver in a infinite baffle application. As a dedicated mid-bass speaker operating above 50Hz (with active filtering), the ZR800-CW can be safely operate at power levels momentarily exceeding 200 watts. When operating below 50Hz as a subwoofer, power should be limited to no more than 125 watts per woofer in infinite baffle applications.
Enclosed Operation: The ZR800-CW can also be used in a sealed or ported enclosure. Power should be limited to no more than 125 watts if being played below 50Hz. More power can be used if appropriate active high-pass filtering is applied.
- Recommended Sealed Box Volume: JL Audio recommends mounting this woofer in a sealed enclosure made out of 3/4" MDF with an internal volume of 0.75 cu/ft.
- Recommended Ported Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a ported enclosure made out of 3/4" MDF with an internal volume of 1.125 cu/ft using a 2" diameter x 5" long port.
