Excellent rock sub

JoeSDS from San Diego, CA on 7/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for an excellent rock sub after my 12" was stolen from my trunk. One thing I didn't like with the 12" is it was a bit too far on the boomy, sloppy bass side of things when I would listen to rock/alternative. So I knew I wanted to downgrade to a 10" to tighten things up. I came across the JL set up and went for it. All I can say is...PERFECT. This is the real deal if you're looking for something on the low end to capture that tight kick drum and bass guitar. Sounds awesome, even as a single 10" in the trunk of my Hyundai. I have it hooked to a 300W Kenwood amp.

Pros: Said it all in my receiver.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great little sub to even out your system. I listen to a lot of different types of music and this thing does pretty well with all of them. I tend to listen to more heavy metal and find that this speaker can keep up with the double kick drums nicely, as well as give a nice punch with the toms. With the right power and adjustment this sub will blend beautifully into any system. Unfortunately the first one I got had a bad voice coil (reason I gave 4 stars over 5), but Crutchfield sent me a new one for free. Love Crutchfield's customer service, second to none.

Pros: Clear sound, good punch, Quality box

Cons: first one had a bad voice coil.

Very Happy

iBigChill from Washington on 12/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I already had a Bluetooth Sony Deck with Front / Rear / Sub RCA outputs. I started with a 5-1/4" Focal PS V30 Component Set for the front doors and dash tweeters. I left the factory coaxial speakers in the rear doors. I then purchased this sub, an Alpine MRV-M500 mono amp, and an Alpine MRV-F300 4-channel amp. Install went well. I bolted the JL box down to the body of the WJ Jeep being careful of not fitting wiring / gas tank / etc. I mounted both amps and power distribution blocks under the folding rear seats. I then spent a couple days tuning everything, I am using the crossovers built into the Sony Head Deck since it allows me to feather the High Pass and Low Pass Filters with selectable slopes. I set the gain conservatively on each amp, around 10% below nominal. It is awesome. I couldn't imagine having two 10"s or a 12" back there. I've been listening to classic rock, Indie / Aughts / 90's / 80's / Alt Rock, modern pop (with my fiancee'), Hip Hop, Electronic, and even some metal. It sounds great with all (need to adjust gain off head deck though). It is accurate, clean, loud, responsive, and punchy. I'm a bassist, it sounds like my bass rig is in the Jeep. Listening to music with distorted bass, the distortion goes through the mids with rest through sub. There is no latency, they hit in sync. Anyone who says it doesn't keep up with double kick drums or fast transients doesn't have it setup properly.

Pros: Value, great sound, great build quality, easy to use speaker terminals, fast, responsive, accurate, and looks cool.

Cons: Should come with grill.

This is a great subwoofer for the price! I love the box size, because I was able to fit this in my mid-size SUV under the bottom privacy cover with no problem. this box did not take up much space at all. The sub gave me the rich fill in sound that I was looking for enhance my factory system.

Well, it's a subwoofer

MrGoodberry from Pennsylvania on 8/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased about a month ago, been straight bumpin' since then. The sub is a little expensive compared to others, but it sounds very good. It is only a ten incher, so you won't wow your friends as much as your little brother will with the two twelves in his racecar. Very sturdy build, turned out to be smaller than I had pictured, but There are no words that can describe how perfectly it fit into the trunk of my Prizm. Paired with the SO M-1350 Mono Amp.

Pros: Great Sound, Sturdy, Slick Enclosure, Very Nice Frequency Range.

Cons: None to be listed so far, I am a satisfied customer.

Love it!

Sounds great




novaks47 from California on 7/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm powering this sub with a Apline MRV-F300, bridged, so it's getting around 150watts RMS. I listen to metal mostly, with lots of fast, tight drumming. This sub handles the low bass well, but unfortunately, is too slow for the fast stuff. Hard rock sounds fine, but once you get some fast drumming going, it just kind of "rumbles". It simply lacks any attack. It does go low, and handles deep bass just fine, so if you listen to rap, pop, rock, or electronic, this sub will get the job done. Metal-heads should look elsewhere though.

Pros: Nice, small form factor. Excellent build quality. Deep bass.

Cons: Too slow, no attack. Lacks tight, accurate punchy bass.

Great bass response!

Lon from Minnesota on 7/14/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Although it's not marine certified, I put this subwoofer in a storage cabinet under a sink in the cockpit of my boat. It's not exposed to water or sun light. I thought about cutting a hole in the bottom of the cabinet and having it downward firing, but I changed my mind. It sounds so good, I don't think I have to cut into the cabinet. Great value!!!

Pros: Great tight and responsive bass. If your looking for a resonating bass, I would look at a ported subwoofer box. I like the hard hitting, but not long lasting bass. This subwoofer rocks the dock.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Great Value

Brad from Bolingbrook, IL on 7/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I don't hesitate giving this product a 5 star review. The enclosure is solid, sound quality is great, and it just looks cool while leaving tons of trunk space open. I surprised my girlfriend by installing this in her BMW X3 while she was out. She is VERY happy with the response this sub is capable of! The enclosure is paired with a Pioneer GM-X822 that is mounted to the back with the speaker facing out. Looks so pretty. Don't forget to pickup the 10" grille (JL Audio SGR-10) to protect your investment! It's extremely easy to install and will save you a heart attack from (hopefully never) finding out something has punctured a hole in your precious bass cannon! I also called Crutchfield support and spoke with Tim about details on how to install this sub and amp combo. He was very patient and answered all the questions I had, even if they were a little repetitive!

Pros: Punches through the rear seats of an X3 with ease. Clean sounding bass running alongside the factory audio equipment. Arrived in perfect condition.

Cons: No negative qualities apparent.

Aidan from California on 6/14/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So I have had this sub woofer for a little under a week. I listen to edm, dubstep, alt rock, indie rock, and some metal. I have it upfiring in the trunk of my 07 Kia Optima. It sounds really good, however, it doesn't hit too hard, which I am kinda disappointed in. I know its only a 10 and it's sealed but i just expected a little more from it. This is also my first subwoofer so It is a good start I guess. Maybe in the future ill get the enclosure with 2 JL 10's.

Pros: looks nice and clean, good build and sound quality

Cons: Wish it would hit a little harder

great range

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't give a one star because the choosing of this Sub enclosure was my choice. And I can't give 5 stars because it doesn't sound as I expected it to. This sub was put into a 2000 Lincoln LS sedan and has a good size trunk. I paired it with a Kenwood Excelon X500-1 300 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (500 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms)

Pros: Good price and fit. Good Quality and looks sweet.

Cons: Not made for vehicles with large trunks

Kevin from Manassas, VA on 3/28/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub is just what the doctor ordered. As I've gotten older my need to show off and upset the neighborhood is nonexistent. However I still crave those sub tones to enjoy my music fully. Also my G35 doesn't have much trunk space to work with. I paired it with a RF p300x1 and couldn't be happier with the set-up. This sub punches hard and is very snappy but doesn't drone or rattle. It is very well built and great across all music genre's. I'm very pleased I chose not to go with a ported box/enclosure. Crutchfield service was excellent as expected and I cannot say enough good things about this sub. Thanks

Pros: Excellent pop, response and snap.

Cons: None


Will from NY on 3/24/2015

Absolutely outstanding product. I'm pushing it with 250w rms with a JVC 800w peak amp. Sounds excellent at low volumes, and doesn't even flinch at maximum, never mind missing a note. Fits perfectly in my Prius C and shakes the mirror. Also looks great, for the 1% that's worth.

Pros: Rises to 250w rms like a champ. Fits in the space, doesn't distort. SQ over SPL, though the SPL is great

Cons: I don't understand the question.

Haven't had a sound system in awhile and ive always known about JL and they have good sound quality and didn't want anything crazy so this was recommended by the crutchfield team and matched me with the sound ordinance m1350 amp and sounds amazing exactly what I was looking for and at a very reasonable price. Couldn't be happier with my purchase and highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a good product and great sound.

Pros: Bass hits hard just perfect Perfect price

Cons: None

Awesome Quality

David from Lutz, FL on 11/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This a quality product. It is not for booming rattling bass, but it does get loud. This really brings your music to life. Gets really low for a 10 and responds well to fast, intricate music. When I was younger I had louder set-ups, but this has great sound quality. Well beyond kicker. I listen to all music types and have not been disappointed. It will shake your seats, but I imagine the w3 model is much better for that. I have it in the trunk of a 4 door, and get great sound. Blends amazingly with my Polk 6.5 door/ back dash speakers. Using a Kenwood 5 channel 40x4 for inside and 300watts to sub. I am using about 80% of the power. Exactly what I was looking for. Nice tight bass with an ability to play hip-hop/rap as well. At under $200, you can't go wrong.

Pros: Quality. Space. Depth of range

Cons: None.

clean sound but under powered

alex from Coral springs, fl on 11/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub is perfect for jazz, blues, classical and some rock. however once you get into music that requires more base such as R&B, rap, etc it starts to show it's weakness. still for the size, price and build quality you cannot go wrong. overall it exceeded my expectation

Pros: compact size means it fits into my Mini Cooper, easy to connect wiring and a nice clean looking fit and finish. The sound compliments mids and highs of other speakers but will not win any competitions when it comes to deep thumping base (remember this box is not ported so it produces clean but not powerful sound)

Cons: honestly, this is a fantastic value and I don't see very many cons other than Limited volume; I know that my amplifier can produce way more power but this sub is unable to handle it. but that's life. you can't buy a Honda Civic expecting supercar performance

Great sound

Great sub, paired with Sound Ordnance M1500. I had it in a hatchback where sound quality was noticeably better than in my trunk of my new Acura TSX. Still a great sub but in an open hatchback this sub sounds fantastic.

JL Audio has always been my go to company for subwoofers. For this system though, I needed something simple, small, and ready to install. I was glad to see JL Audio had something to fit my needs. This box is solid, and the sound quality is superb. If you need low cost bass, this is a great option.

Pros: Low cost, sound quality

Great bass

Clarkman from Arnold, MO on 5/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is some great bass! I chose it because it would fit in the back of my jeep and it was on my budget. I have a soft top and it still sounds great and hits the notes hard, if that's what you like. You can also turn the bass down if you just want bass to round out your music, which it does brilliantly as well. My favorite part is how it allows you to actually feel your music without becoming overpowering. It's perfect for adding quality bass to your music, but can still turn it up and shake your seat.

Pros: Sound quality, size, price

I can honestly say that the sound this one Bass Wedge puts out is exactly what I was looking for. I had previously installed new Rockford door speakers in my '00 Blazer but was still needing more low end sound. It is compact, sounds good, and built well. I have had many compliments on the sound produced and they are surprised to see the size and only one 10" sub.

Pros: Sound, size, cost

Sounds great, fills in the missing bass from my speakers. Using a Rockford 500x1d to power it and it sounds really good. I'm not trying to provide sounds for hood but with it sitting in the trunk of my sedan it sounds great. Thanks Ziggy, awesome advice

Pros: Great sound Compact Inexpensive Looks good

Edawson from AC NJ. on 3/30/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to fill the bottom range in a 04 mustang GT vert, tore out the MACH 460 and started from scratch. This Speaker was paired with a 300 watt amp bridged mono. I didn't want a real big thump like a kids car I just wanted to hear the bottom end of music. It will do boom boom but probably is best suited for clean tight bass fans. I used it in my trunk and mounted a piece of diamond plate to it for a nice little amp rack. The sound is just what I wanted and at a great price point.

Pros: Size, portability, JL quality

Cons: none that I can find

Nice sub for the price. I purchased the sub based on JL reputation as I have owned them in the past. Not exactly what I was expecting.. the last JL sub I owned was a W3 and it hit much harder. But for the price with the box, this one sounds great. Also, fits nicely in the back of my CRV EX-L. Installed amp and sub through speaker level inputs with factory in-dash nav system. Works great. Great tech support from Crutchfield.

Pros: Space saving, Great price.

Cons: None so far

Great sub for a great price! Love JL subs and this combo is perfect for what I wanted. Medium sized sub in a box that wouldn't take up much space. Fits great in the trunk of my 95 civic. I used an old Alpine amp I had laying around the garage and after some fine tuning, it sounds great.

Pros: Everything you want in an economical package.

Cons: None.

JC from Worcester MA on 1/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After returning a Sound Ordinance sealed under seat powered subwoofer I bought this instead because I have had experience with JL subwoofers in the past. I installed this into my wife's minivan and WOW. For what this costs the sound is incredible. The bass is nice and tight and very accurate (sealed tends to be so). I have an old Alpine MRP M-200 mono amp pushing 150 watts RMS into this sub using just speaker level inputs and it's perfect. My wife is also extremely satisfied and says she can hear notes in the bass in her music that she never heard before. This thing is also capable of pounding really hard. The bass notes go way down low. I also have a much more expensive ported JL Audio CP108LG-W3v3 in my car and sometimes I prefer the tighter bass from this sealed enclosure over mine. I also went to some car audio shops in my area and auditioned many different manufacturers' subwoofers (some 2X the $$$) and none of them sound as good as JL Audios subwoofers do in an apples to apples comparison. On a side note do not put a subwoofer like this into the sealed trunk of a sedan and expect great results. These sound best if they are in the same air space as the driver is. I have this in the back of my wife's Mazda 5 and it sounds awesome.

Pros: Deep accurate powerful bass and plays the finest details. Sounds good at low volume and can also pound the doors off your car.

Cons: Doesn't fit under a seat.

I can't believe how hard this sub hits for a single 10" in a small box. I put it in my regular cab Dodge Ram 1500 running off the back channels (bridged with gain set right in the middle) of a Sound Ordnance 4050. It hits the low, lows with very little distortion at only the very highest volumes. People don't hear me coming from a 1/4 mile, but it sounds very clear and loud inside my truck. You can't beat this sub for the price and performance in my opinion.

Pros: Solid bass for very little money

Mike from Charleston, SC on 3/1/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to for the back of my 2008 Jeep Wrangler after looking at many different subwoofer enclosures and powered subwoofer integrated enclosures. This was ideal for the Jeep, because I could quickly disconnect it and leave it at home for the off-road trips and it hardly consumed any space, which is a premium in the Jeep! I chose to power it with a JL Audio XD500/3 100W x 2 + 300W x 1 @ 2 Ohm Car Amp. I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the sound and I'm still running the stock head unit. This is my first experience with JL Audio products, great sound and an incredible value. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to fill their vehicle with full, rich sound!

Pros: Small Powerful sound Premium enclosure

Cons: None

I mean what can you not say about this little sub. I put it in my wife's focus paired with 210 watts RMS sound ordinance amp and wow this thing is super powerful for its size and it can hit some deep notes for a sealed enclosure. Its super small and can fit practically anywhere and if you make the speaker cord long enough you can even put it on its face and move it around as your storage needs change...its that versatile.

Pros: Awesome bass for a 10" sealed woofer!

Cons: Zero

For being so cheap, it certainly does get the job done. If you're on a budget, definitely look into this sub! I have it in an Expedition and I'm only putting 175 watts into it, and it still makes the rear view mirror and seats vibrate and bump pretty nicely.

Pros: Sound quality, size

When i first bought this sub, i was not sure if i would get the bass i was looking for. I was DEFINITELY WRONG. This was a great price sub for my budget and it hits the highs, lows and mids fantastically. The sub doesnt lack on power either. I paired this sub with a 250W Rockford Fosgate amp, and the sound is indescribable. If your looking for a great sub for a decent price, this is your sub.

Pros: Sound quality, Price, Power

Cons: hmmmm none.

Awesome Sub!!

Billy from Chaska, MN on 5/12/2012

Very solid sub. I recently purchased for my 2011 Wrangler. I am very impressed with the bass quality and output. I am using a S/O M2100 to power it, and it does a great job! I typically listen to country music, and it seems to be the perfect sub for it. Hard hitting, tight, and much cleaner sounding that a 12" sub in my opinion.

Pros: Fits nicely in my Jeep, which has limited space. Cost effective when you consider the very cool enclosure it is already installed in.

Cons: None.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The JL Audio BassWedge sealed subwoofer enclosure is designed around JL Audio's 10" WXv2 subwoofer, delivering tight, powerful bass. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has a JL AUDIO logo embroidered across the top.

Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of high current spring posts. The posts are located on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

WXv2 Woofer Features:

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is a JL Audio proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the woofer's motor remains linear in motor force over a long excursion range, and 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.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the 10WXv2 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.
  • Rear Gasket: The woofer has an integrated foam rear gasket which provides an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.

Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-10 grille (item number 136SGR1031, sold separately) can be added to protect the woofer cone.

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team.

Why did you buy this?

Right size and its a JL... [ gabor  Jan 21, 2017 ]
JL Audio quality / sound & I think this will be a good fit for a Honda Accord [ Joseph  Dec 05, 2016 ]
I've had a JL 10" sub in my Jeep Wrangler for years. I had it in a generic box which never really satisfied me with how it fit the space, I never paid too much attention to it until I managed to totally destroy the sub by throwing a perfectly aimed duffle bag right through the front of my sub! So it took this opportunity to replace the sub I loved with a new one while finally upgrading to a better sized box and of course, a grill ! [ STEVEN  Sep 25, 2016 ]
Because I had 2 12 inch subs and wanted something a little smaller [ Timothy  Jul 07, 2016 ]
The "need" for something bigger brought me to looking at 10" subs. Box size and woofer size made this the perfect sub for me. Still leaves me with the cargo space I need in my Honda Element and it should thump quite a bit more than my 100 watt bazooka tube, especially since I'm pumping 3 times the wattage into it.

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. [ Krissy  Aug 05, 2015 ]  Staff
Michael., I wasn't able to get it under my seats I have a Ford F-150 ....,the speaker is great [ JASON  May 27, 2015 ]
ITs not strong enough to push bass through your better off getting the slim line kicker subs they really hit hatd and clean under the seats [ JUSTIN  May 26, 2015 ]
this box is perfect for small spaces so 7x6 should be fine. My mustang trunk is smaller than that. [ CHRISTOPHER  May 11, 2015 ]
Forget blowing up the amp you're more likely to blow up the sub it's only rated for 200w rms. [ Steven  Jul 04, 2014 ]
It is still in the box. Sorry I couldn't help. [ Peaches  Jul 03, 2014 ]

I ran the sub on its back for about 5 months when I had my truck, it did not seem to have any negative effect on it. Hope this helps [ ROBERT M  Jul 02, 2014 ]
Yes it can. I would play with the direction and which way it faces to see what sounds best. I have mine firing towards the back of the car so it fills the whole car nicely. I have a 2005 Scion tC. [ RYAN  Jul 02, 2014 ]
I have mine laying on its back in the trunk of my Mustang and it sounds great! [ CHRISTOPHER  Jul 02, 2014 ]
Daniel, I'm not sure about upside down it might restrict the movement of the woofer. LD. [ LILTON  May 31, 2014 ]
Hi there, sorry can't answer but someone stole it after finish with basic installation and test (did it on driveway).got no time for more. [ JOSE  May 24, 2014 ]
Yes [ SHERAZ  May 24, 2014 ]
If you mount a 2x4 on each side. [ Randy  May 23, 2014 ]
It can be turned upside down but you would have to put some rubber feet or something on the raised part of the box to raise it up a little. It was not designed to face down but it can be done. Otherwise the woofer would touch the surface as it expands and might damage the speaker. Otherwise this box sounds Great would definitely purchase again. [ CHRISTOPHER  May 23, 2014 ]
Yes [ JOHN M  May 23, 2014 ]
