Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, these subs will not blow the doors off your car. Luckily JL did not design them to. I came from a 500w 10 inch kicker in a ported box to these and am very happy with my decision. The volume level seems to be pretty much the same, but these are much cleaner, punchy-er, and not annoyingly boomy. I have them matched up with a RF R500X1D and these can really put clean bass down. The quality of the box is superb, and the JL Audio Logo is awesome!

Pros: JL Quality, Clean, perfect fit for my application

Cons: JL is right on the edge of being too expensive, 400w RMS is a tad low.

I gaveit a 3 stAR because they force you to buy the grill separately which costs additional money. It should come with the grill.......



Awesome sound quality

Very nice sounding sub. Very tight, deep bass. Just what I was looking for. I listen to a huge verity of music and it sounds great on all types.

Pros: Small, well built, decent connector, nice rounded corners.

Cons: Would be nice if it had grills.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Let me start by saying that I don't have children, I have my dogs and my car, they are my children. That being said, I love these subs. They provide more than enough bump bump for my SI and they don't take up the entire trunk which is a nice plus. The box has JL Audio on the top which adds a high end feel to it when you pop the trunk and that's the first thing friends see.

Pros: Smaller than most sub boxes which means more trunk space!

Cons: Not much room on the top to mount an amp and still be able to see the JL Audio embossing.

Fits perfect under targa top in trunk , sounds great

Billy B from SE Arizona on 5/16/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great, accurate sound. The bass guitar notes, hard hitting tight bass notes, and deep vocals come through very nicely. This package isn't going to blow up the neighborhood with hip hop boom... But I knew that before buying. I originally considered a pair of 8" subs, but I'm glad I got these. The tuned box does very well. I paired them with a 500 watt Fosgate mono amp and it's perfect. If you want to fill out the sound in your system, get these. I love them. They do hit hard with hip hop, just not like a ported 12" or larger would.

Pros: Box is tuned for the speakers. They are pre-wired correctly for a single output amp.

Cons: None.

The subs are nice. They don't hit hard at all though. I turned the box all different ways to see which way would give me the louder sound but it's a nice clean sound.

My first subs..

Bryce from monroe city, MO on 1/20/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Since these were my first subs, I can't compare them to other subs I have owned. However, being in high school I have lots of friends who compete with me. In the never ending- "Who has the better system?". I love these subs, and I can easily say I have the best sound quality subs in town. They might not hit as hard as those with ported 12s, but that's not what I bought them for! They're fantastic for some low hard beats, but keeping that tight sounding bass I crave. A wonderful product that I do not have a single regret of buying! Wonderful service to assist me in choosing these bad boys out, as well.

Pros: Wonderful look, tight and crisp sounding bass, easy hook-up, and awesome sleek appearance

Cons: none!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this sub-woofer to add a some bass, it is great! Not only did it add the bass I needed It allowed the settings of the other speakers to be adjusted to create a very full, clear and richer sound. If I would have had any idea this would have such great sound, it would have been the first system piece I purchased instead of the last.

Pros: Great sound, fantastic price. Fits behind the rear seat of a Ram mega cab, and still leaves a lot of room.

Cons: N/A

Performs as advertised

Jason T from Christiansburg, Virginia on 6/1/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Jeep wrangler with an extremely small space for subs which is well known by all Jeep Wrangler owners. This set up delivers exactly what you would expect from JL a quality clean sound from a 10" subwoofer. I have owned many difrferent vehicles with many different sub set ups over the last 20 years. I knew that the enclosure wouldn't be able to hit the extreme lows due to the enclosure and woofer size. But I was pleasantly surprise by the subs ability to hit the notes around 100 megahertz range delivering clean punchy bass. Think rock, country and songs that have a distinct kick drum. If your looking for a sub that will play all of those crazy lower bass notes that most rap songs have in them.....well this isn't the sub for you. As with all subs make sure that you have the proper RMS feeding them as well as a capacitor to ensure that clean power feeds the subs properly.

Pros: Price, Sound Quality, Great Sound for the enclosure size.

Cons: none

I don't have a lot of room in the trunk of my 2013 mustang. These subs left me a decent amount of space and sound great. Tried a bunch of different positions and seem to sound best either rear or down firing.

Packs a lot of punch, but somewhat large and design flaws

Ezra from Broomfield, CO on 5/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub sounds amazing if you don't install it as JL Audio recommends. JL Audio designed this as a front-facing sub. It sounds fine in this configuration: very punchy, decently deep base. But if you want it to truly perform, face it downward. This gives a MUCH deeper sound. You'll notice an immediate difference. The only problem with this is that the edges of the box give roughly 1/4" of clearance from the speakers to the floor, which could cause damage to the speaker as it travels. I spoke with JL about installing "feet" onto the sub, and they said it was a good idea to avoid damage by facing it downward. $5 in parts and about a half-hour to install. I used four rubber feet intended for the legs of a folding chair, four 3/4" PVC pipe caps, and four #10 1/2" wood screws. Drilled a hole through the caps, ran the screw into the hole, and screwed the caps to each corner of the sub, 1" from each side. Then popped the rubber feet onto the caps and I was done - I now had an extra inch to inch and a half of clearance to the floor - plenty of room to travel, and maybe even enough for the grilles that JL recommended. (Speaking of which, Crutchfield lists wrong grille!) If you mod your sub as I did, stay at the corners and you shouldn't hit any wires. Remove woofers (allen wrench needed) to be sure - I did. If you don't feel like going to the trouble, you can still face it downward - it just might not last as long. Great sub though - fast, deep, and loud.

Pros: - Fast response - Deep sound - Nice and punchy, not too boomy - Easy install if you don't modify it: insert wires and place it where you want. Done! - Reasonably attractive in the trunk/hatch area - Flat profile, rather than angled - easy to set things on

Cons: - Performs better when facing downward, but JL didn't leave enough clearance to do so safely - modification is required. - Very large if you need trunk space, lack of angled back means some space is lost behind it when placed behind an angled seat. - Crutchfield is recommending the wrong grilles - use SGRU-10, NOT SGR-10W3v3/W1v2, according to JL Audio. Rated "Ease of Use" with 3 stars instead of 5 due to modifications necessary to get the best sound out of the sub.

Should have went with 12"s

Zzxman from 99301 on 1/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product but just don't hit the depth of base I was hoping for.

Pros: Fits in almost any place you want it! Looks great, and sounds clean.

Cons: Base depth just don't hit as deep as other 10" subs I've had in the past I would recommend going with 12" or 13" JL subs!! They are much better.

very good

Very good setup. I had 3 10w6's for 14 years and eventually it was time to move on. I bought these and what an impressive sound. These aren't what I expected..they're much more.

Pros: Size to power ratio is great.

Cons: None

Awesome for OEM upgrades

Paulie from Jersy from Central NJ on 7/31/2012

I purchased this sub box along with an XD300 amp last year to add some bass to my factory 2011 Buick LaCrosse's stereo. Fortunately you can easily add such an upgrade as long as a power cable can be run - jumped one of the rear speakers for signal and off we went. As it is a 10" sealed box, the bass is tight and quick, not like the typical ported 12" or 15" sloppy subs one might buy. Works great with all music - electronic, rock, jazz...

Pros: Adds another octave of bass to weak factory radios, not too big or heavy, good looking box.

Cons: Doesn't go down to 20hz - expected from a 10" sub, power handling is only 400w - but that is fine in a smaller car.

JL Audio CS210-WXv2

RTSM from San Francisco Bay Area on 5/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a sub to improve my stock Lexus ML sound system, the ML system already has good highs, lows and spacial sound but lacks bass to round out the sound. I wanted great bass without the need to crank the volume high. I installed a RF PBR500x1 & a Audio control LC2i, in testing several subs this model won out for the best match to the ML system. I tried the JL HO 10" ported sub that could easily handle the power fed to it, the subsonic characteristics just shook the car, definetly a a high output sub but it's output was more in the 60-80 hz rate which left a gap to the ML system which I believe drops off at about 100 or so hz. I then tried this sub and it fit perfectly sonically with the ML system providing more mid-bass punch that matched great with the ML system. This sub cannot handle massive amounts of power (+500wts) but is perfect for my needs, great mid-low bass to round out the stock system with no gaps in the sonic range. I can adjust the lower sub notes via the remote dial I have for my RockFord Fosgate amp that increases the 80hz notes to overcome the tuning of this sub box but have to be careful at the higher volumes. Note that this sub is probably not for the set of folks who want a sub that puts out the loud, what I call "hum" type of bass but for the money fits perfectly for those who want a good quality addition to your stock system, also note the size of this box is very compact, amazing what JL has engineered in such a small size, very satisfied.

Pros: Great bang (bump) for your buck, a well constructed quality product, looks good, compact size, sound quality (mid-low bass range), good punchy bass

Cons: Has power limitations expected from a sub at this price range and form factor, needs just a bit more low end sound


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The JL Audio BassWedge sealed subwoofer enclosure is designed around two of JL Audio's 10" WXv2 (4Ω) subwoofers, 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 subwoofers are internally wired in parallel to a single terminal, presenting a 2Ω load to the amplifier. 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 grilles (item number 136SGR1031, sold separately) can be added to protect the woofer cones.

Why don't you read up on the dementions of the box and compare or measure your trucks seat. [ Manuel  Nov 01, 2016 ]
To be honest I'm not sure what you will have to do is measure behind ur seat or where ever you want to put it and compare it to what the specs are for the box [ Joshua  Oct 30, 2016 ]
I have a 05 F-150 extended cab, and it did not fit underneath my back bench seat. I suggest a single. Or you could be like me and just put it in the middle between the driver and the passenger seat. Still a great pair a subs! [ Garrett  May 27, 2016 ]
My best advice is to make a cardboard model of the same dimensions as the sub enclosure. These were my first subs in my car and I have no regret buying them! [ Michelle  May 22, 2016 ]
I think it would. I recently bought these and they are very compact. [ Rocky  May 20, 2016 ]

Not sure what the cab is like. Fit behind my seat in a ram 2500 2006 [ nate  Nov 13, 2015 ]

they have only a single set of connectors so a 1- channel amp will be fine. I have mine hooked to a moderate power supply and I love the tightness and solid hits. sounds great from country to pop to rap. [ DAVID  Aug 27, 2014 ]
The impedence of this dual sub setup is 2-ohm so you could either take a 2-ch amp & bridge it to get the 2-ohms or just go with a mono 2-ohm amp which is what I did. I have the subs down-firing & it works very well. These are great subs. [ DAVID  Aug 27, 2014 ]
This unit has a 1 channel set-up [ MICHAEL R  Aug 27, 2014 ]
A 2 channel amp and one channel are similar. You can either use a 2 channel and bridge it to a one channel or a mono block amp. [ MICHAEL  Aug 27, 2014 ]
It can be run on either kind of amp but it only has one set of terminals on the box [ STEPHEN P  Aug 27, 2014 ]
It can be for either a one channel or two channel it's really your preference [ DARNELL  Aug 27, 2014 ]

I was in your shoes about a year ago with these same Subs. I went with an Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack 45W x 4 for my 4 JBL speakers & then the ALPINE MRP-M500 300W x 1 mono amp for my JL 10's. I have these in a '92 BMW convertible with the sub box turned over so the subs are "down-firing"... it sounds AWESOME. [ DAVID  May 27, 2014 ]
alpine MRX M55 Mono Amp Is A Good Amp For Those Subwoofers. Its 550 Watts RMS. ITS 1 To 2 Ohms Stable. [ DARNELL  May 23, 2014 ]
