Our take on the JL Audio 10W0v3-4

The JL Audio name means high-quality sound, and the 10W0v3-4 10" subwoofer doesn't come up short when delivering trademark JL performance. You'll find patented technologies like an optimized motor system that promotes precise, linear cone movement, plus advanced cooling systems throughout the frame for rapid heat dissipation.

Long-lasting performance

This W0v3 Series sub features a tough polypropylene cone that resists flexing, and a durable foam surround that'll stand up to hard use. The cone's extra-long excursion capability lets it hit truly deep notes without distorting, while the hefty 2-inch voice coil drives the woofer accurately for top-notch performance under extreme conditions.

The patented elevated frame design delivers air flow directly to the voice coil, cooling it for better power handling. JL Audio designed this sub to work in compact sealed or medium-sized ported enclosures, and they offer an optional grille that'll protect your JL Audio sub in its box.

Awesome Sub, hits hard for being a 10inch in my extended cab truck. I put it in a single fire sub thump enclosure, and it faces the floor of my truck under rear extended cab seat ,and hooked it up to my JBL GTX500 amp, sounds clear and sassy and not to much.

Features

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, 10W0v3-4 motors display linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintain 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 10W0v3-4 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 a rear gasket to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.

Long Excursion: The 10W0v3-4 subwoofer has 11.4mm of linear excursion, giving you louder bass with less distortion.

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 0.65 ft³ sealed box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 18" W x 11" H x 9" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.)

Recommended Ported Box Volume: JL Audio recommends a 1.125 ft³ ported box. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a ported box with external dimensions of 23" W x 12" H x 13.625" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.) A slot port measuring 10.5" tall x 1.25" wide x 32" long is recommended, resulting in a tuning frequency of 30 Hz and a -3 dB point of 29.6 Hz.

Price and quality. [ Pete  Sep 01, 2017 ]
After 16 years, my JL Audio 10W0-4 gave out. It was in its 3rd car and 2nd enclosure. Simple decision to replace it with the 4th generation of the same speaker. How many things last that long these days? [ MATTHEW  Aug 31, 2017 ]
I chose this as the best bang for the buck to replace some older JL audio subs that I had [ Jeff  Aug 25, 2017 ]
It was a VERY tough choice between this and the Rockford Fosgate P2D4-10, but it ultimately came down to lower frequency response and higher sensitivity. This will be my first JL product, so hopefully it will live up to the amazing reputation. [ Rhett  Aug 21, 2017 ]
I'll audio is a trusted brand, also this particular sub is one of their best. Not only is it one of their best but one of the best, this speaker tops ratings for volume and quality of sound in its league. [ Josiah  Jul 06, 2017 ]
Because it will fit in the swallow area underneath my rear fold-up seat. [ Jonathan  Jun 19, 2017 ]
perfect sub for my needs. going to try it and hope it comes with stikers so i can advertise product [ Jeff  Jun 15, 2017 ]
Great price for the boom I needed. JL has always been a great product for me so I've stuck with them! [ Geoffrey  Jun 12, 2017 ]
Replacement subs for my sons truck. Big upgrade from the MTX that were in the Thunderform [ ron  Jun 06, 2017 ]
Looks like the best choice for a small (.5 cu ft) sealed enclosure. [ ERIK  May 19, 2017 ]

Quality product at a good price. [ Anthony  Oct 29, 2016 ]
Based on the type of music I listen to, I was instructed by my brothers to get one or two 8 inch subwoofers. But I've always liked anything in excess so I decided to go with the 500 watt 10's. Better too much than not enough! [ David  Oct 11, 2016 ]
Been running the same subwoofer in my jeep and it has been amazing for 2 years now. Buying a second now for my firebird! [ Robert  Sep 16, 2016 ]

15 questions already asked

That is about time and a half the recommendations from JL. They are spot on with their specs so I tend to stay as close to them as possible. That said, your personal preference on sound may dictate that you are going with just what you need. I would give it a shot and see if you get the bass you're looking for. Hope that helps. [ Anthony  May 08, 2018 ]
It is bigger than the specs suggest , but it will work if you absolutely can't get closer to specs. [ Jason  May 08, 2018 ]
Thanks for your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your amplifier in more detail. They will be able to help determine if the JL W0v3-4 is the right option; and if not, they can suggest an alternative better suited for your amp. [ Larry  Dec 04, 2017 ]  Staff
I would think it would depend on your amplifier, and subjectively on your needs. Im running a single with a nonported box sized to spec, as well as a RF amp at nearly 600w and I don't feel I would ever need more. [ kenneth  Oct 23, 2017 ]
Yes it very tight bass [ Richard  Jun 19, 2017 ]
It is. It's tight and punchy though I have it in a smaller box due to my truck size. 2008 chevy Silverado extended cab. Hope that helps. [ MARK A  Jun 18, 2017 ]
Yes. High bass is really tight. Mid to lows sound good on these subs, but they do not project outside the vehicle very much. I was running three of these on direct with a 2000w Kenwood and they would hit really hard and tight inside the truck, but were not very loud outside the truck [ MIKE  Jun 18, 2017 ]
I can tell you that I listen to rock, metal, country and some electronic music and my sub hits perfect. I'm running mine in a sealed enclosure and putting 500w to it. I couldn't be happier. [ Brian  Jan 16, 2017 ]
Yes, I have this sub and it's great! I have it in a sealed enclosure with a sound ordnance M-1500 amp. I mostly listen to rock and alternative, the response and punch is amazing. [ Desert racer  Jan 16, 2017 ]
The JL Audio 10W0v3-4 is not designed for free-air installations. JL recommends either a sealed or ported box, and includes diagrams in the owner's manual with specific dimensions for both. If you would like to discuss further or explore free-air rated subs we car, you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Larry  Jan 25, 2017 ]  Staff

JL Recommends .65 cu ft sealed enclosure for this Sub. I have mine in a custom stealth enclosure thats about .6 cu ft. Stuffed it with a little extra baffling and it kicks @ss. JL sells stealth boxes for many different model cars if you're interested [ Mark  Feb 01, 2016 ]
You can use a .75 up to 1.0 cubic ft sealed box. [ JUAN  Feb 01, 2016 ]

I wish I could remember exactly how much room it took. Even though I don't recall the exact number, I do remember initially thinking that there was going to be enough room looking at the specs, but then I still end up having to buy a spacer to make them fit. I know the lack of exact details doesn't help as much, but that's what I recall. [ JUSTIN  Jul 30, 2014 ]
Mine are in a custom JL ported box so I don't know sorry. [ REGINALD O  Jul 30, 2014 ]
As long as you have a half inch between the bottom of the box and magnet you should be fine [ MARTIN  Jul 29, 2014 ]
If you are looking for an amp to only push the subs then you want to look for an amp that ranges between 500 and 600 watts. [ TOMMY G  Apr 29, 2014 ]
My one is currently wired into a 420w channel in my amp and that's too much power. I had to adjust the settings and ride around for awhile to get the sound just right. It states that the Recommended Power Range is 100-300w and that's the truth. So for two I say nothing over 800w. [ ADAM  Apr 29, 2014 ]
They have a 250 watt max I would run a 500-1 mono amp and bride the speakers so that both recieve 250 watts a speaker.wich will run these at the optimal power setting with blowing them [ CHRISTOPHER  Apr 29, 2014 ]
something rated at about 500watts rms for 2. why are you using two seperate amps? i would recomend an alpine pdx-v9. [ JASON S  Apr 29, 2014 ]
At minimum I would suggest an amp that pushes 700 watts RMS.. it's always better to go with something a little more powerful than the sub so that you are actually powering the sub.. I had one of these in a sealed box with an 350 watt RMS amp it was an MTX mono block. No complaints. [ JEREMY  Apr 28, 2014 ]
At minimum I would suggest an amp that pushes 200 watts RMS.. it's always better to go with something a little more powerful than the sub so that you are actually powering the sub.. I had one of these in a sealed box with an 150 watt RMS amp it was an MTX mono block. No complaints. [ JEREMY  Apr 28, 2014 ]
I have a 300 watt amp powering one of these and it sounds great. Amp is turned up barely over half way. I would think a 400 to 500 watt amp should work well unless you like a heavy amount of bass. Thanks [ MATTHEW J  Apr 28, 2014 ]
