JL Audio 8W7AE-3 Anniversary Edition 8-inch 3-ohm Subwoofer Driver$569.99
The 8W7AE-3 commemorates the 10 year anniversary of the JL Audio W7 3 Ohm 8-inch subwoofer series. These subwoofers feature a polypropylene cone with trademarked "W-Cone" technology developed specifically for the W7 series, paired with a polyester foam surround. The 8W7AE-3 brings serious performance to the table by combining the breakthrough of the long-excursion W7 design with an 8-inch bore. It has been called "addictive," "seductive" and "the new subwoofer reference", by some of the world's toughest reviewers, and has earned these accolades by delivering nearly limitless dynamics, exceptional balance and world-class sound quality.
For the JL Audio fan, the Anniversary Edition includes several unique features over the original W7 release including:
- Satin-Black Powdercoated Baskets
- Bright Anodized Surround Clamp Ring
- Anniversary Edition Cone Badge
- Anniversary Edition Terminal Label
The 8W7AE-3 model comes in a single, 3 ohm voice coil. We recommend powering the 8W7AE-3 with a 1000 watt JL Audio amplifier. If you are only running 1 subwoofer, be sure to look at the amplifier output at 3 ohms, not just the number that the amp is rated at when completing your setup.
The 8W7AE-3 8" subwoofer is optimized to operate in a compact 0.875 cubic feet (24.78 liter) sealed enclosure, or a 1.00 cubic feet (28.32 liter) ported enclosure.
