Overview Details Accessories

Remarkably realistic bass

JL Audio designed their W3v3 subwoofers to deliver powerful, accurate bass with a medium-power amplifier. Their extensive motor assembly research resulted in a design that ensures smooth, precise cone movement at any power level. Exclusive cooling features shunt heat away from the sub's internal motor structure for long term durability and reduced distortion. The W3v3 sub works well in a sealed or ported enclosure.

JL Audio W3v3 interior

The 8W3v3-4 subwoofer boasts an 8" mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a distinctive metallic JL Audio medallion. A patented design eases the stress felt by the rubber surround during cone movement, for increased reliability and consistent bass output. The removable, customizable trim ring accepts optional JL Audio grilles, and can be painted to enhance your installation.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

JL Audio 8W3v3-4 Reviews

Reviewer: daril from Jacksonville  
This sub is not 250RMS it is 125watts RMS. Peak power is 500 watts, you devide that by 4 and you get the true RMS. JL is misleading customers by saying is 250watts RMS continuos when 250 is actually Program watts which is half the peak power, which means is the safest a subwoofer or speaker will play for several hours before they blow. So please ppl do some research before feeding to much power to a sub.  Look at JL famous power handling line and you will see that dark green stops at 125, the progressively mix with yellow till 250 and over that is red. For those who understand watts they would know what I'm saying here, but those who don't a simple RMS next to a number will get you equipment burned. JL should put 125watts RMS not 250.

I'm powering two of this with a sundown audio rated 800 @ 2 ohms which is the load have in parallel. They are working great in a 0.70 cubic feet ported enclosure single chamber tuned to 35hz. I just keep the gain in the amp @ 1/4 . I have way less bass than what I had with my SSA audio XCON  single 12 but I am fine with it since I want space in my corolla and save over 50 pounds in weight.

A little boomy but amazing depth in frequency response out of a tiny enclosure. I replaced an MM840DVC that I had blown with this. While I might say that the Polk was more accurate the JL achieves much better low end which is a fair trade for me.

Nice for an 8 June-10-15

I love the 8w3v3 I have it in a nissan d21 pickup, and it hits extremely well. I've had people ask if I have two 12s in my truck. It's really nice to suprise people when my old truck bumps.  Definitely will stick to JL in the future

Awesome! June-03-15
