The JL Audio 12W1v3-2 is has a single, 2 ohm voice coil 12 inch subwoofer and offers improved construction and better materials than the W0 line. The W1s have a Mica-filled polypropylene cone, rubber surround, and they are available in both 2 ohm and 4 ohm voice coils. This 12" subwoofer combines JL Audio's hard-hitting bass, affordability, and long term durability, all into one compact, yet impressive, package.

The 12W1v3-2 is designed to work in a sealed enclosure. It features a shallow mounting depth of 5.41" while delivering full-sized output. The compact motor structure, allows it to comfortably fit in a lot of spaces where a typical 12-inch driver will not.

The 12W1v3-2 12" subwoofer is optimized to operate in a compact 1.10 cu. ft. sealed enclosure or a 1.6 cu. ft. ported enclosure.

We recommend this 2 ohm version for single subwoofer applications to maximize the output of your amplifier to a 2 ohm load. You can also use a pair of these subwoofers if you have an amplifier that is 1 ohm stable, but JL does not make a 1 ohm stable amplifier to power the 12W1v3-2. If you are looking for a pair of 12W1 subs, we recommend the 4-ohm version, 10W1v3-4. You can wire the two 4 ohm subwoofers in parallel to a 2 ohm load. If you are powering a single subwoofer, we like the JD250/1, XD300/1v2, RD500/1, and the JD500/1. If you opt for one of the 500 watt amplifiers, be sure that you don't turn the gain up all the way. You don't want to over heat and warp the voice coil with too much power.
