JL Audio built the BassWedge CP212-W0v3 enclosure to make car-rattling bass for a reasonable price, without the need for a ton of power. The enclosure's designed to match the two 12" subs loaded into it, so you know you'll get every ounce of performance out of this enclosure.
The CP212-W0v3 BassWedge contains two 12" W0v3 subwoofers that handle up to 600 watts RMS, and are loaded into a specially built slot-ported enclosure. The enclosure can be placed with the woofers firing downwards, or in typical front or rear firing applications, giving you immense bass regardless of how you place it.
JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, nickel-plated push terminals, and solid internal wiring.

These subs and the enclosure are amazing! Smooth bass, great sound quality, and best bang for your buck with the price.
The Wov3 subs in the specialized box for the said subs are a great fit and hit hard with me just using the 400.1 kicker Kx series amplifier
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, great fitmet in my trunk and power range for an amp upgrade at a later time
Cons: Other than me preferably wanting a deep black box carpet.... nothing
Ive never heard two subs kick this hard im amazed
Pros: Shakes whatever u put it in
If great sound,and powerful bass is what you're looking for this is it. I've had mine since April and these things bang. I have a JL Audio jx1000/d monoblock pushing them. Of course I'm not pushing the full 1000 rms to them but I'm pushing every bit of the 600 rms they're designed to handle. I have them in an 01 impala ls and the slot ported basswedge box fits all the way up against the backseat. I absolutely love them. I hear no distortion whatsoever. U better get u a set I'm telling u.
Pros: Amazing clean sound capable of handling real power.
Really great trusty products
Bought this while questioning if I was sane taking my back seat out and replacing it with this in my truck. And the first time I heard it I knew it was worth every penny. Hits hard and great quality. If you want good bass and tons of looks from people (good and bad) then this is for you
Perfect I put it in the back of my truck it sounds excellent you had everything so clear I love it every time I order from you guys I never have a problem everything is great love you guys
Pros: Sounds great
Cons: Sounds great
I purchased this to replace prefab box where I kept blowing the speakers that I put into them. That box sounded good other than having to replace the speakers every 1-2 years. It's just that this box is made by JL for their subs and man do they sound awesome. The lows were what I was looking for and lows is what I got. It has the sound quality and impact I was looking for as well. For those who may complain about price, all I can say is you get what you pay for.
Pros: Sound quality and build quality.
Cons: It took up more trunk space than I'd like. So, for those that need it, measure.
Got mine locally from a chain here in Texas. Great deal for the money! I have them on my RF 500w mono amp and they have amazing sound through all different types of music. Yes box is slightly big but its built for proper airspace and porting for these subs. I like option to flip and have them down fire, how I have mine in my SUV so still can use lower storage compartment and hold stuff.
Pros: Excellent sound, quality, can run a very wide frequency spectrum, down fire, sturdy construction
Cons: Other then being heavy which isn't really bad bkx doesn't move and you know it's built very well!
JL Audio always makes great products and this is one of them. Fit great in the back of my jeep wrangler, once I removed the back seat. Looks great and sounds good.
The construction is very durable. JL's always are built that way. They sound great with my MTX Mono Block amp
Pros: Worth every penny
I've always been a fan of JL Audio subs and amps and this box of 12s does not disappoint. I've always built my boxes before, but this factory built box has been a great experience. I will definitely buy JL Audio again in the future.
Pros: Amazing bass and appearance
Cons: The box is kinda big and isn't custom built for the car, but the the front and back angled edges definitely fit against the rear seat better than expected, which saved some room. All in all it is a lot of bass for the amount of space it takes up and I still have enough of a trunk left for golf clubs and groceries... Also, doesn't come with the speaker grilles but I bought them at the same time and all was good.
Sounds pretty amazing I have a set in my ion with a Alpine 500.1 amp they pound hard with good sound quality
Pros: Good sound great design
Cons: Box could be a bit smaller
I always hated seeing reviews of items that people have had for only a month, but here I am doing the same thing. I've had these about a month, and they bump real hard. I upgraded from the less expensive version of these and there is a noticeable difference. These hit the lows and highs much better and can handle a lot more watts than my other subs that I had. If you're also looking at the less expensive WXv2's, I suggest you go with these because they sound much better. Just for a little more money it makes a huge difference in sound quality. Make sure you have an amp that can power these to their full potential. These are two ohm subwoofers so getting an amp with around 500 Watts RMS at two ohms will be just fine. I'll try to update this if I find any problems with them.
Pros: Size, Watt Handling, Style, Power, Wide Range of Bass.
Cons: Expensive but that's the price you pay for quality.
This is by far the best sub enclosure that I've purchased yet. JL Audio subs & amps are some the best products offered in the mobile audio industry today. I'm very pleased.
Pros: Sounds excellent any way you place it.
Cons: No speaker grilles.
Purchased to replace crappy Walmart Dual subs in a bandpass box. The difference is like night and day. very responsive unlike my previous set up. I cant wait t upgrade my head until and amp (stock and Bass Inferno 1500). This fits perfectly in my 05 Accord coupe
Pros: great sould, looks cool and very easy to install
These subs blew away my expectations. I turned up the gain on these from my amp and my trunk rattles like a chainsaw. My windshield wipers actually rattle also, and my rear view mirror is useless at times. I was upgrading from one 12" sub and these sound way louder then I thought they would! Impressed.
Pros: Nice sound, great quality enclosure
Cons: A little on the expensive side, but worth it!
I always loved JL Audio & I still do! These subs will know your socks off.

Overview: The JL Audio slot-ported BassWedge subwoofer enclosure is designed around two of JL Audio's 12" W0v3-4 (4Ω) subwoofers. Aggressive tuning delivers powerful bass without the need for a huge amplifier. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has JL AUDIO logos embroidered across the top and front. The enclosure design offers a variety of installation options: forward, rear or down firing. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on the same plane as the woofer; the port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises.
Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of nickel-plated, 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.
W0v3 Woofer Features:
Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-12 grilles (item number 136SGR1231, sold separately and individually) can be added to protect the woofer cones.
Dimensions: The CP212-W0v3 enclosure isn't symmetrical; it's approximately 31-5/8" wide, 15-1/4" tall at its tallest point (toward the front), 12-7/8" tall at its shorted point (toward the back), 20-5/8" deep at the base, and 16-5/8" deep at the top.
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. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
AWESOME[ Adam Aug 14, 2017 ]
Picked this one due to the great reviews and it fits perfectly in my 2017 Rav 4 limited.A friend has the same vehicle with the same subs and I was very impressed with the sound quality and amount of bass.[ Herbert Jul 22, 2017 ]

I use to have jl audio subs. I was in love with them. And now I'm finally bringing a pair back home. Feels really good![ Benjamin Mar 04, 2017 ]
I don't believe it will, with the heigh of the box even in the down firing position it will be to thick. But the best way to be sure is to measure the dimensions behind the seat. I think a good way to do so would be rear hatch closed, lay down one side an measure the other sides distance from the hatch to the bottom of the seat back, then the hatch to the top of the seat back.[ Lee Oct 07, 2017 ]
For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.[ Kenny Jul 11, 2017 ] Staff
I'm not 100% positive but it fits nicely in my 2003 Saturn L300, even with the spare tire and some of my drum equipment stored with it, and both of those cars seem quite similar in size.[ Kolton Apr 01, 2017 ]
I'm afraid we don't sell the JL Audio BassWedge slot-ported enclosure separately here--it's only included with the purchase of a loaded JL Audio subwoofer box. For more details on installation in your '14 Charger, you'd be better served reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle's research file and offer advice for fit and compatibility. I hope that helps![ Larry Nov 13, 2016 ] Staff

Thanks for your question. Looks like it will. We show your vehicle has an available area for sub-box mounting in the trunk is: Width(side to side) = 35", Height = 19", Depth (front to rear) = 34" at top, 38" at bottom. Based on the specs for this unit you should be good to go. Hope that helps.[ Kenny Jun 21, 2016 ] Staff
Absolutely. The box isn't nearly as large as it looks online.[ Joseph Apr 22, 2016 ]
Sorry, no. We found 14" of available height in the factory trunk location and this enclosure is 15.25" tall. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan Feb 19, 2016 ] Staff

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The open box stock item on that JL Audio CP212-W0v3 will be the better of the two since it won't have any marks on it at all. If the customer wants to say money, the scratch and dent will do that but it will have a minor blemish on it. Both open box and scratch and dent items carry the full 60-day return policy, lifetime product support and factory warranty.If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.[ Krissy Jan 13, 2015 ] Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Each sub has a 4-ohm impedance and they are wired in parallel to have a total box impedance of 2-ohms.

Ported is always louder than sealed in my opinion. I think you would gain a lot since you would be doubling your output with two subs and swithing to a ported enclosure. If your rear seats fold down then it will work well, I could be heard from a good distance, set off an alarm or two and had many people roll up windows in traffic when next to me lol. I enjoyed every minute with these, slight trunk flex too[ IVAN A Aug 13, 2014 ]
