Great Bang For Your Buck

Crutchfield customer from Fort Worth, TX on 5/21/2019

2017 Ford F-150 XLT

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

So much bang for your buck. You'd never guess this was an 8" subwoofer. I would recommend this setup for anyone who wants some rich bass and not drown out your mids and highs. Works great with good quality factory speakers and you can adjust it if you upgrade those later. One of the best things is the options for turning on the the amp. There is no need for a remote wire. The amp recognizes signal coming through the RCAs and turns the itself on. You can run a remote wire if you want, but it's not necessary. It is a well designed setup good for all types of music. A+

Pros: Nice rich bass for a nice price. Easy install and takes up minimal space in your vehicle.

Cons: None so far.

MIND BLOWN! 5 star status...

Rick from Hawi, HI on 2/26/2019

2017 Ford F-150 XLT

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

Mind blown! That's all I can say...This micro marvelous magnificent sub is second to none in its class. I too, am an old skool bass junkie. Backyard learnt and audio enthusiast. In my teenage years, it was all about the bass! Maybe a horn tweeter for highs and a little midrange but I was all bass. I had all the sizes. MTX, rockfords, bazookas, kickers, etc. As I got older I began to realize and appreciate the balance of having a full range system. As I got older the appreciation for control and clarity grew. The speaker technology also evolved. What once was huge boxes and miles of wires with huge amps are now being replaced by smarter and much more efficient technology. This AMAZING 8 INCHES of SUB is THE REAL DEAL. This beauty is AWESOME! The sound, the spl, the amazing lows is truly mind blowing. I have outfitted my 2017 Ford f150 with this bad boy in the back of the rear back seat. I did have to cut a little of the back padding to accommodate the storage under the rear seat. Although I can't lift it up fully, it's ok. I still have access to under the seat. My mids and highs are supplied by Polk audio studio marine grade speakers. Components on front doors and coaxials in the rear. I mounted the tweeters on the front doors (looks great too). I also replaced the pillartweeters with infinities. My truck sounds really good. You feel it in your chest, rattles the gas pedal and rear view mirror and leaves me satisfied with satisfying sensational bassgasms. BELIEVE ME, YOU WILL!

Pros: Super compact All in one (amp, box, speaker) It's a JL Audio product, nuff said Quality construction

Cons: Not fond of the power clip that clips into the system. There has to be a better power clip system. I don't like that screw system. Although the price is intimidating, you get what you pay for. And with this price range and the re production of sub frequencies you get out of this bad boy, you get more than what you invested. So not really a con I guess.

Chris from Columbus, OH on 12/18/2018

2000 Jeep Cherokee

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

Completely Satisfied with the ACP108LG-W3v3. Install was a breeze. Hits hard for an 8", nice lows for an 8", doesn't take up a lot of room. If you are on the fence, pony up, it's worth it... the 2 year JL warranty justified the extra coin for me (hopefully I won't need to use it)

Pros: Size. Warranty. Sound. (surprising lows for an 8")

Cons: JL Should offer a wedged version with a flat front.. most vehicles have sloped rear seats, plus it would offer a more sturdy base.

Very very little base even for an audiphile

franc23 from Northborough, MA on 12/7/2018

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

Went with every audiophile's suggestion and got this sub. The bass was really really really mild - almost non-existent to a fault. I definitely didn't want bass and was chasing high fidelity sound over noise. So I know what I'm looking for but to say that this was realllly mild is an understatement. Just set your expectations. On hindsight will probably buy the bigger 500W speaker. Love JL though. Got the JL speakers/amp with this and they were super clean and crystal clear. Which made me wonder if I just got a defective sub to begin with but too much hassle to return ship, etc.

Pros:

Cons: Base way too mild. May be better off getting the next size or a different brand Won't fit in under rear seats (F150) without the enclosure getting dented. They have a flat profile one which may work better

Clean, strong bass with a small footprint

Charlie H. from Laguna Beach, CA on 11/28/2017

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

I was shocked the amount of clean thump that this 8" powered sub delivered from such a small thin (5") high box. It was recommended on the Porsche forum as it fits in the spare tire area. Man, what a difference! worth every penny.

Pros: Strong thump, great bass, good looking, high quality, no need to mount a separate amp.

Cons: I cant think of any Cons except that this is a case of you get what you pay for, so its not cheap. But this thing delivers, The car stereo place that installed it was shocked how good it sounded.

Crazy amount of base for an 8in. sub. Did not expect it to be that loud, plus the quality is just amazing. Great purchase, just time to move on to JL's 10in.

Pros: Great quality, Much louder than expected, decent price point, easy fast install, small package

Cons: Gets pretty deep, but not quite as much as I would like.

Microsub+ 8"

Vince from Miami, FL on 7/14/2017

2016 Ford F-150 XLT

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

This is a well built and easy to install, all-in-one system. If you are looking for a space saving compliment to your factory stereo then you have found it, especially since the amp is built in. I gave it four stars because it does have a few drawbacks... for one, THE PRICE! c'mon JL you guys make great products but you can get quality products from Kicker and Alpine for a fraction of the cost. Also the power plug on this was a great idea but I feel poorly designed- it feels like it will break with repeated plugging/unplugging and has small plastic clips that don't seem very durable; also the POS+ and GND- cables are RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER...What?! I had to be very careful when installing to ensure the wires were fully inserted and even wrapped some electrical tape around the cable as a precaution in case a stray wire decided to come loose(hey it happens). Besides that it performs great. I have a 2016 F150 and this 8" model fit right under the back seat. Not all the crazy low bass im used to from larger systems but it sounds good for a single 8" sub.

Pros: Compact size, all in one unit, big sound for single 8"

Cons: Price, power plug

Michael from Phoenix, AZ on 3/22/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've always admired JL products from afar, but never had the money to do up a system the way I wanted. I've been slowly fixing up an 85 Toyota pickup and was tired of the cobbled together audio system that was in it. I did a new stereo and speakers with an amp, which made it sound better, but it was lacking in the low department. I needed a sub and decided it was time to see if JL was worth the extra money. It was worth every penny. Nice compact package. I love the power plug for easy removal. The unit looks amazing but sounds even better. Too much bass for what I needed. That little 8 hits hard! Crisp clear long bass notes. I have mine turned down to level 3 out of 10 on my head unit. Lots of room to turn it up. Keep in mind I have it in a regular cab mini truck though. I believe it would still sound just as good in a 4 door full size truck.

Pros: Compact Tons of power Crisp clear bass Easy install with the recommended crutchfield kit.

Cons: None. Try to mount it on the drivers sode if you mount it upright. Mines on the passenger side and upside down which bothers me. I'll move it eventually.

A great addition to a factory stereo

gregory from Indianapolis, IN on 1/24/2017

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

I just bought a 2017 Chevy Trax crossover with the speaker factory system. While factory systems have come a long way (and this one despite not being the Bose top end factory system) and this one if properly tuned was actually pretty decent, I was missing the low end notes in my music (I listen to everything from Sinatra to Kendrick Lamar). In comes this JL Audio powered sub. I have never owned a JL, but I knew of their reputation. Picked up an InstallCard and had in installed in the back hatch. Very impressive bass reproduction even with the limited tone controls built into the car. It really filled out the factory system, and while I know that aftermarket speakers/amp would make it sound even better, at this point of my life I wanted cabin filling, clean audio. This JL truly complimented the setup and completed the system, and I am sure that I have many years of car audio please to look forward to. Highly recommended.

Pros: perfect size for my small crossover great fill in of bass notes

Cons:

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

You get what you pay for, I originally purchased the well reviewed Sound Ordnance powered sub and wasnt too thrilled with how it sounded. Maybe I got a bad one? Some notes sounded like a wood stick hitting a cardboard box instead of bass. This JL unit is much much better than the Sound Ordance unit I received and well worth the added price. I knew it as soon as I picked it up. Rock solid construction, quick detach connector made installation super easy. Works great for everything I listen to. It's exactly what I wanted to supplement a factory premium stereo on the low end. Highly recommended and Made in the USA is a nice plus

Love thus sub in my Classic Mercedes Benz. Sounds fantastic. Im playing Tech House and techno and the sound is very impressive. I contemplated 250w or 500w but decided Id start with 250w and if needed will return exchange. The 250w is ample. I tested it loud while driving, and people down the street are turning heads to hear where the sound is coming from. Id say I play it 30-50% max volume tempted to buy another fo my 2nd car. .

Pros: Awesome deep base perfect for house and techno

Cons: none, I got it on sale, very pleased with my purchase

No conpromise compact woofer

Kevin from atlanta, GA on 3/2/2016

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

I rarely give 5's but this system deserves it. I installed this in my wrangler under the rear seat (tight squeeze BTW. You have to remove your rear seat then wedge it in). It sounds amazing. The ported woofer really allows it to grab those low bass notes and sounds like a larger subwoofer. If you don't want to take up space but want to hear and feel bass this is the subwoofer for you. I actually purchased the sound ordnance and returned it for this. It's a lot more expensive but it is worth it.

Pros: Compact size

Cons: It's still a bit bulky. I literally had to wedge it under my seat. I'd like to see a 6 inch version of this speaker for smaller vehicles.

Small size, big sound

Charles from Mississippi on 8/3/2015

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

I installed this in my 2015 F350 Super Crew behind the rear seat. There was only about six inches in depth to work with. I also installed new door speakers an a amp and head unit. To say this unit hits may be a understatement. I too was impressed with the ease of installation and removal. It greatly brings out the depth of the music. My last vehicle had a factory sub that was absolutely no comparison. JL Audio has really hit this one out of the park. A must have for truck owners.

Pros: Ease of install. Very large sound despite the size. Removable wiring connector.

Cons: A little pricey.

Just a couple days in

dmozer from Colorado Springs, CO on 7/23/2015

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

I'm just a couple days into ownership with this sub, so it isn't yet broken in. I'll be sure to follow up my review after break-in and completing my set-up. I'm running this off a factory head unit in a 2008 Edge using a Line Out Converter. One of my favorite features about the amp/sub is how easy it is to remove it from the vehicle. The area where the power, ground and remote line attach pulls out along with the RCAs to allow quick removal as needed. Another area where this JL excels is in the rap and techno space. It really pushes well when listening to Flux Pavillion or the like. One area that I'm tentatively disappointed in is when listening to blues or rock. I've got some more tuning to do so I'm not terribly concerned that I won't find a setting that works well across genres. The size of the box is an obvious draw to the sub and in reality it is great to have something this small in stature and loud in volume (when requested). All-in-all this is a great set-up, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

Pros: Great response for rap, hip-hop, techno; ease of installation, ease of removal, build quality, size.

Cons: Questionable blues and rock performance.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The ACP108LG-W3v3 MicroSub+ is a compact powered subwoofer, useful in vehicles with limited space. The ported enclosure is loaded with one 8W3v3-0.40 8" low impedance subwoofer (0.4Ω) and a 250 watt RMS class-D amplifier. The amp uses JL Audio's exclusive DCD amplifier technology, combining direct power conversion (no conventional switching power supply) with an ultra-high current output section. The result is an efficient design (91-94%) with very little heat generated.

Enclosure Design: The enclosure features MDF (medium-density fiberboard), constructed using CNC woodworking equipment, and covered with high-grade automotive carpeting. The driver is protected by a black steel-mesh grille. The port and amplifier panel are both on the same side of the enclosure.

Flared Port: The enclosure has a side-firing flared slot-port. The flared slot-port design minimizes turbulence and improves fidelity. The port is approximately 1-3/8" x 4" at the opening.

Power/Ground Plug: The power, ground, and remote turn-on wires attach to a removable terminal block; easily unplugged so the subwoofer can be removed when you need more storage space. Each terminal is a screw clamp that will accept up to 8 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge power and ground recommend).

Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line level (RCA) or speaker level signal. A 12" speaker level input harness is included.

Remote Level Control: An optional RBC-1 wired Remote Bass Control (item number 136RBC1, sold separately) allows bass level adjustment from the front of your vehicle.

Controls:

  • Input Sensitivity: rotary control; variable from 70 mV to 1.4 V for the RCA inputs and 280 mV to 5.4 V for the speaker level inputs
  • Turn-On Mode: three position switch:
    • REM: amp turns on when +12 volts DC is applied to the remote terminal
    • DC: the amp turns on when a DC offset voltage is detected on the speaker level inputs
    • Signal: the amp turns on when an audio signal is detected on the speaker level inputs, turns off after 30 seconds without an input signal
  • Crossover: rotary control; the crossover point is continuously variable from 50 Hz to 200 Hz; the slope is 12 dB/octave and the low-pass crossover is always engaged
  • Polarity: two position switch; allows you to reverse the phase of the subwoofer (0°, 180°)

Protection Circuit: The amp is equipped with thermal protection circuit; it will shut down if it overheats.

Dimensions:

  • Width: 18-1/2" (18-3/4" including wiring)
  • Height: 11-1/8"
  • Depth: 5-1/8" (6-5/8" including grille)

[ JOHN D  Apr 08, 2019 ]
A
I'm just an informed hack, but the literature on powered sub woofers tell me that the theory behind a powered (having a separate, dedicated amplification component) speaker is to fully power the subwoofer therefore allowing the head amp or integrated amplifier to fully support the associated system with "power" with little to no stress or demand when the bass part of the music calls for it. So, no, it is not designed to do that.
[ John  Apr 08, 2019 ]
Q
Does anyone know what's the lowest frequency it can play?
[ Frank  Oct 20, 2018 ]

I have not used a sound generator to test my subwoofer and I don't really do that with my home system either. At home I have very good results imho with a REL subwoofer. I'm hearing Johnny Cash very clearly on lower notes ang that's consistent with my home system that I've spent a lot of time tweaking. The music doesn't "boom" and has a good "soundstage" for my tastes. I'd guess at around 40 Hz. It is still pretty clean. I hope that helps. I have an average "inhanced" system that came stock with my 2014 Prius, not a high end electronics setup, so it works well in my situation.

I searched forums extensively for the same answer. There was little difference between the two. I've owned the 8" for a while now and it (the 8") is, so far, everything I hoped it would be.

I was torn as well.. However, I was limited on Space. While the dimensions are similar, I needed the smaller of the two. Plus the elimination of an external amp and finding a place for it. I am very happy with the sound output on this one. Everyone asks if I have a 10 in the back.

8's pounds like 10's and in a small package.

I only went with the 8 inch due to the space limitations I had in my F150 crew cab. If you've ever had a 10 or 12 and go with the 8, you will miss the lows that even a 10 can produce. The 8 is great for the size, but I miss what I got from a much cheaper sealed Kenwood 10. Although I don't regret my purchase, I hope to get a JL 12 in the near future.

Because it was the only one I saw available. I didn't realize you had a 10 inch one available too at the time of purchase

When I was shopping for a subwoofer I never even looked at the 10 inch one. I went to a local audio place and heard this one and it sounded better than the two 12-inch Subs it was next to. The sound is amazing and it fits in tight spaces really well.

I bought the 8" because of space constraints. I wanted something that would fit under my rear seat and not stick out. It hits hard enough for me. I have it tuned down most of the time. It's a great sub. It hits as hard as a low end 10" sub and still fits nicely under my rear seat of my f-150 super crew. Can't go wrong either way. If you have the space go with the 10". I'm happy with the 8" though.

Would this work if I fit this in the armrest slot in the backseat ? (I drive a BMW 4 series)

Does it hook up to stock radio?

This can be connected to factory radios, however, you may need additional install items. I'd recommend reaching out quickly to an Advisor by phone or chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
