JL 13TW5v2 subwoofer

JL Audio technology enables this shallow 13.5" sub to take up less room with its perfectly-matched enclosure.

Immense bass

JL Audio used their extensive engineering know-how to build a super-thin subwoofer that offers big performance. Their engineers managed to compress the sub's motor structure into a shallow package without losing the excursion needed to create big bass. And for you, that means impressive performance in a slender package.

This PowerWedge houses one 13.5" TW5v2 subwoofer that pounds out impressive low end, handling up to 600 watts RMS. The enclosure is matched to the sub for optimum output, and the airtight sealed design delivers powerful, accurate bass.

Enclosure assembly at JL Audio factory

JL Audio enclosures are machine-cut and assembled by hand at their Florida plant.

Solid MDF enclosure

JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure. Their V-Groove® construction provides you rigid box joints that won't leak air or resonate. They finish the enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, 5-way binding post terminals, and solid internal wiring. The enclosure is inspected by hand at the manufacturing facility in Florida to ensure that you get the bass that you expect from JL Audio.

Awesome product sounds great!

Amazing Bass & Sound Quality

Patrick from Chester, VA on 2/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

An awesome subwoofer enclosure & a must for regular cab truck owners wanting added bass. I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado regular cab & this is a perfect fit behind the passenger seat, not sacrificing a lot of space. Unbelievable bass from such a small enclosure, and using a JL Audio HD 900/5 delivering 500W RMS just to the sub. Subwoofer gain is only set halfway and more than enough bass. I'm not a "bass head" I like the bass to blend with the rest of the music, not to overshadow it or rattle the vehicle to death. I actually had the 12" TW3 version of this truck style box and exchanged it for the 13.5" TW5 version. I found the other to box to be a little "boomy" for my musical tastes, but still a nice sub box. This is a more refined sub and sounds like a compact version of a W7 with just the sound quality alone. Thanks again to Crutchfield's SUPERIOR customer service by sending one of these out to me the same day I called to ask for a exchange. Thanks again!!

Pros: Just the sound quality alone, build quality is superb as well, a little pricey for some, but you get what you pay for.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The JL Audio CS113TG-TW5v2 is an awesome speaker! I bought 2 of these in November 2014 and loved them so much I bought 2 more in March 2015. As a Professional Disc Jockey I look for the best sound quality possible. In 2011 I outfitted on of my 2011 Ford E350 DJ Van with four Alpine SBR-S8-4 (1 under the font bench seat, 1 under the middle bench seat, and 2 under the back bench seat). Alpine produced a supreme product and I have no complaints. The bass was crisp, clear and loud as you want. Installation was a breeze they fit perfectly under each seat with no custom install work. As a Hip-Hop/R&B enthusiast I really wanted more bass than the Alpine SBR-S8-4 provide. I have been a life long JL Audio fan and in November 2014 I bought 2 JL Audio CS113TG-TW5v2 for my second DJ van (another Ford E350). Installing 1 under the front bench seat and the other under the middle bench seat, I immediately heard the bass difference I was wanting. The JL Audio CS113TG-TW5v2 dimensions fit absolutely perfect under my bench seats and I am now able to remove the back bench for DJ equipment and still having a Butt Kicking system. I loved them so much I bought 2 more for my 2011 DJ van replacing the four Alpine SBR-S8-4 and with no regrets! I definitely recommend the JL Audio CS113TG-TW5v2 for the true car audio enthusiast and especially for the JL Audio fan!

Pros: Low profile truck style box makes installs easy in the right application. Provides the low bass and thumping sound for the Hip-Hop, R&B, Dance genres listeners.

Cons: These speakers Are pricy but if you have the budget, it is well worth it!

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have owned many a JL subwoofer and amp combo such as 10w7, 12w6, and 13w7, and a 1000/1 amp and have never been disappointed. Over 15 years of playing music in my vehicles at ridiculous levels and not once have I had one fail. So it seems only logical to purchase the slim line version. [ kyle  Mar 17, 2016 ]

I couldn't get it behind my 2012 f250 [ Larry  Jul 13, 2016 ]
Not sure. But if you get that combo on a jl audio slash 500/1 it sounds amazing. [ Larry  Jul 13, 2016 ]
Well sort of. I had to permanently remove the grill and slightly notch the box to fit around the center seat belt bracket. Works great. [ DAVID  Jul 13, 2016 ]
Nope, no mounting hardware, it does include stickers to put on you're back window to let any low life know you have subs. [ Erik  Aug 08, 2015 ]
No it doesn't [ Larry  Aug 03, 2015 ]
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  Feb 16, 2015 ]  Staff
