About the JL Audio 8W1v3-4

Legendary JL Audio engineering

When we think of subwoofers, we typically think of big speakers in large enclosures driven by high-wattage amplifiers. But sometimes you need bass in a smaller, more modest version. That's why JL Audio has created the 8W1v3-4 subwoofer, which fits in spaces where most subwoofers fear to tread.

Legendary JL Audio engineering

When we think of subwoofers, we typically think of big speakers in large enclosures driven by high-wattage amplifiers. But sometimes you need bass in a smaller, more modest version. That's why JL Audio has created the 8W1v3-4 subwoofer, which fits in spaces where most subwoofers fear to tread.

Trickle down technology

This affordable 8" subwoofer incorporates patented features developed by JL Audio for their legendary W7 subs. Special venting keeps the sub running cool for trouble-free performance, while extensive research in cone bonding and motor assembly construction keeps its cone movement linear for precise, dependable output. The cone interlocks with the dust cap for superior rigidity, and a sophisticated suspension system keeps internal parts aligned properly when you're jamming hard.

JL Audio 8W1v3-4 8" Component Subwoofer

At only 3-7/8" deep, this sub will fit in a lot of tight spaces.

Solid bass made for compact boxes

The low-profile 8W1v3-4 sub works best in compact enclosures, so you can put quality bass in smaller and hard-to-fit vehicles. Its shallow mounting depth of 3-7/8" allows it to live in compact environments, and it's been optimized to fit an enclosure with a volume of only 0.35 cubic feet. 

The sub features a mica-filled polypropylene cone and an aluminum dust cap with an embossed JL Audio logo for a look that stands out as much as the sound. The removable, customizable trim ring lets you put a personal touch on your system, and makes optional grille installation a snap. This punchy W1v3 sub works well with moderate power, delivering impressive performance without costing a fortune. Haven't you got a cozy corner somewhere that needs some bumping bass?

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

JL sub rocks 07 expy.

Mike from Ooltewah, TN on 2/24/2019

2007 Ford Expedition

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Awesome performance for a small subwoofer as expected from JL audio. Had to modify the fit as the cage was a little small for the expedition's OEM sub box. Nothing a little 1/4 inch plywood and silicone couldn't cure. The OEM sub used a bolt through the back of the enclosure to help hold the magnet in place, but JL doesn't have a threaded hole, so I plugged the hole with a nut/bolt with a rubber washer. Solid and air tight. Completes the whole JL speaker package in the expy, components in front, coax in rear, running on a sound stream 5 channel nano amp. Wife couldn't be happier with the system. Modern Bluetooth for her phone curtesy of Kenwood head unit, and plenty of boom for her kpop favorite BTS. Extra note. I bought the sub as a open box. Saved a few dollars and was not disappointed with the contents. Thanks Crutchfield's for this great option.

Pros: It's JL Audio. What more is there to say. Tight, clean, powerful, bass.

Cons: Driver not a direct fit for the OEM enclosure. Expect to create a ring bracket and fill in bolt hole behind driver in enclosure.

JL Audio in Toyota Tacoma JBL System

Artemio from Amarillo, TX on 1/10/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have two of these subwoofers in my Tacoma. These sound AMAZING! Thanks to Crutchfield support for advising on which subwoofers to choose based on my current setup. My Tacoma has the JBL package, so I added a separate amplifier to power these two babies. They are a little pricy compared to other subs, but you get what you pay for. These provide amazing clean, deep, punchy bass. I've never owned JL Audio before, im an Infinity fan and so far I am impressed. I've had these for 6 months. Once they were broken in, the sound improved. By that I am that the bass is now deep and clean. Definitely worth every penny on these sweet babies!!!

Pros: Small, but not shallow. Powerful Clean bass

Cons: Price, maybe?

Great little sub, impressive sound. Installed in a 2005 Tahoe - found a factory sub box for the left rear cargo area from a '00-'02 Tahoe and retrofitted with this sub. This is a very small box designed to fit this space. Driving it with a Rockford Fosgate Punch P500X1BDI amp. I can't think of how it could really be better, excepting include mounting screws with it. If you need an 8" sub to fit a small space, get this one.

surprising output

JTK from Bedford, NH on 8/30/2018

2014 Volvo S60

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I based my purchase on reviews so I'm paying it forward by writing one... I know its nearly impossible to buy audio gear online without being able to listen first. For their price and size, these are pretty impressive for 8 inch. I bought 2, mounted in separate 1.34 cu. ft. sealed boxes and powered with a kicker 43CXA300.1 at 2 ohm. I've had 12's and 10's in my younger years and I can say technology has come a long way since then, these sound accurate, "quick" and go pretty low which is what I was looking for. I definitely would not have gone with a smaller amp though... I would recommend a similar sized amp to push these to their limit given their size. I've pushed them pretty hard and so far I hear no fatigue... if you want bass that's musical and within reason (not heard 2 miles away) then you'll be pleased with these.

Pros: quick and responsive, not sloppy.

Cons: no grill included

Huge sound in a small sub

Jon D from Mililani, HI on 6/29/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Amazing depth and range is what comes to mind with this not-so-tiny 8" woofer from JL. I chose this brand based on excellent experiences with JL Audio in the past. I had an SUV prior to the car I have now. In the SUV I had a 12" JL PowerWedge box/speaker combo running off of a class D mono amp separately. That thing slammed! I never fully powered it or turned it up to its potential, because I probably would've went def. So when I sold that SUV and got a smaller hatchback with a stock 6" Subwoofer, my first thought was a JL upgrade. I got this speaker instead of a greater power handling 8W3, because this one had slightly more range on the lows and requ I had to bore out the old 6" sub holder to fit the JL 8W1 and expand the back by about 1.5". Then find a remote tap for the external amp. When it was all done, I was amazed by sound and vibrations this 8" speaker reproduced. Wow! It sounded like the range my old 12" PowerWedge could make! The only catch was I couldn't turn it up as much, which I wouldn't do anyway. That's fine, I don't need the people 2 cars in front of me to hear and feel my bass anymore. I just wanted that depth that the stock couldn't reach. Some songs can only be fully appreciated with the right speakers. This sub does just that. If you're still in your teenage or even your twenties this may not have enough volume to fill your ego, but it'll make you go def if you play it loud long enough. I'd definitely recommend it if you just need quali

Pros: Small size, deep quality bass without needing to turn the volume all the way up. Fits in CT200h stock enclose with minor modification.

Cons: Not loud enough to advertise the goods in your trunk to your neighbors up the street - if that's what your trying to accomplish.

I needed a pair of shallow 8 inch subs. I had these before and I liked them. I'm always looking for better so when they finally wore out I looked around. I couldn't find anything better, even if I'd spent more money. If you need a great 8 inch sub, that will fit in a 4 inch deep box, with a fantastic frequency response, look no further.

Pros: Affordable, great sound for an 8 inch sub, super frequency response.

Cons: None

OMG to OHM's!

gary c from St Petersburg, FL on 12/1/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased for factory replacement sub in my 2007 Tundra Double Cab w/JBL Nav system (OEM bass under rear jump seat came apart, old age). Had to do some modification to the factory underseat bass box to make this fit, this speaker is an inch too deep on a top mount install. Problem: The JBL system in all toyotas are 1.8 OHM as measured at the speaker. This JL is a 4 OHM. It was light years ahead of the stock unit, but because the OHM's did not match the other speakers in the truck it required constant tone adjustment for different music. Pain in the ass! I would tune it for a strong modern bass song, and sounded great, then a softer bass song from and old rock song would sound empty, no bass at all. Lesson learned...do not mix and match OHM's in your system. Crutchfield support was absolutely AWESOME! Hank helped me figure this thing out, even had me send him a pic of my OEM part to determine voice coil count, and research any number on it! We came to the conclussion the JL had to go, and w/Crutchields 60 day return policy... they hooked me up with a new RetroSound 2 OHM 8" R-TW82 and shipped the same day with an RMA sent to my e-mail! Instant satisfaction! Great that I did not have to return the JL before they send the RetroSound! I don't know who is in charge of Crutchfields buisness model, and customer first attitude, but they nailed it! Thanks Crutchfield! P.S. I will review the RetroSound as soon as it is installed and thumping!

Pros: It's JL, what can you say! Great sub!

Cons: N/A

Had to buy 8 in subwoofers due to space requirements my friend gave me 2 8 in in another well known popular brand after installing t was a slight improvement however not musical and missing that thump and clear rumble that brings a smile to our faces . I did alot of research read alot of reviews The JL audios were raved about so I ordered from Crutchfield the price was well within my budget and I figures if they weren't an immediate upgrade I could return them Wow what a difference not a little difference but an astonishing improvement My buddy was also immediately impressed so much so that he is going to replace his 10 in sub in his 2015 silverado. Thank you to Crutchfield for carrying such fine products at amazing prices and for speedy service I am a loyal customer for life

Pros: Very musical clear crisp n thumps way lower than most everything else especially in price range

Cons: None other than I wish I could have fit 10s or even 12s

It took about 5 days after install for this sub to break in in sound but the sound quality is fantastic. Very rich, deep bass that you hear and feel. Music is greatly improved and I'm in love. It's amazing how adding this sub truly gives me the chills every time I listen to music in the car. By the way, this thing bumps. I put a knob on my kicker amp and only have this thing turned up about 7% of the way and it hits.

Pros: Bass you'll hear, feel and love

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this subwoofer to replace the blown stock subwoofer in my '99 Ford Expedition Mach system. The sound quality is hands down better than the stock speaker. The speaker is playing lows that the stock speaker could not produce. For those wanting to purchase this for the same application, read on: Even though this is a relatively shallow speaker, it is still just a little deep for the stock enclosure. I had to modify the enclosure by softening the area that the old subwoofer was bolted through the magnet with a heat gun and push it back a half inch. I had measured the stock enclosure prior to ordering and knew this would needed. As one would expect, the bolt pattern is not exact, so you will need to drill new holes.

Pros: Awesome replacement for a stock subwoofer.

Cons:

Features

Woofer: The JL Audio W1v3-4 subwoofer features an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone with an embossed metallic JL Audio logo and a rubber surround for added durability, woofer excursion and bass response.

Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W1v3-4 motors remain linear 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.

Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio's patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.

Vented Reinforcement Collar: The Vented Reinforcement Collar (VRC) is a composite structure that addresses two issues related to reliability:

  • Stress Relief: By reinforcing the critical junction between the cone, voice coil and spider, the VRC greatly reduces failures due to glue breakdown or material weakness. It does this by increasing adhesive contact area and providing stress relief to the spider material at excursion extremes.
  • Air Flow: The VRC also features slots that facilitate air flow directly onto the voice coil windings, thus reducing thermal compression effects and enhancing reliability.

Insert Molded Suspension/Coil/Terminal Sub-Assembly: The W1v3-4 features a unique spider, coil and terminal subassembly, assembled prior to installation in the speaker frame for optimum alignment and glue-joint integrity. This type of assembly ensures precise lead wire length, lead wire entry and exit angles, and coil/spider alignment.

Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame design of the W1v3-4 delivers cool air 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.

Customizable Trim Ring: The woofer comes with a removable ring made of black ABS plastic which can be painted to match the installation theme and create a personalized look. You can purchase an optional grille mesh insert specifically designed to fit into the inner diameter of the trim ring (item number 136SGR831, sold separately).

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Enclosure: JL Audio recommends an optimum sealed enclosure volume for the 8W1v3-4 of 0.35 ft³, resulting in a -3dB point of 59.9 Hz.

Ported Enclosure: JL Audio recommends an optimum ported enclosure volume for the 8W1v3-4 of 0.5 ft³. The recommended port is 2" (diameter) x 10" (long), resulting in a tuning frequency of 38 Hz and a -3dB point of 39.1 Hz.

These speakers are designed to be run with an amp

The JL Audio 8W1v3-4 can be used with simple speaker output but you won't get the full benefit of the Deep hard hitting Base that you would with an Amp and subamp output. If your Radio sends at least 10-20 Watts per speaker you should get good sound out of it. I truly hope this helps but if you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.
