About the JL Audio 12W0v2-4
The JL Audio name on a speaker means high-quality sound, and W0v2 subwoofers don'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 throughout the frame for rapid heat dissipation.
The 12W0v2-4 12" 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 2.5-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, which cools it down and enhances power handling. JL Audio designed this sub to work in compact sealed or medium-sized ported enclosures.

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W0v2 motors remain linear in motor force over a very long range of excursion, and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is vastly reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the W0v2 delivers high-velocity air flow through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil of the speaker. 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 which provides an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.
Long Excursion: The 12W0v2 subwoofer has 11.4mm of linear excursion, giving you louder bass with less distortion.
Recommended Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box size recommended by JL Audio is 1.375 cu/ft. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 16" W x 19" H x 11.75" 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: The ported box size recommended by JL Audio is 1.75 cu/ft. A diagram is provided in the owner's manual for a sealed box with external dimensions of 17.5" W x 15.5" H x 15.5" D, assuming 3/4" thick material. (If you are using 5/8" thick materials, you should subtract 1/4" from each dimension.) The box should be tuned to 26 Hz. A rounded port with a diameter of 3" and a length of 14" is recommended.
