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 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.

Simply put, this is the baddest 8 inch subwoofer in the world. It handles so much power for an 8, it goes so low, and it is so accurate. If you want a W7 but you don't have a ton of space, this is the answer.

The 8W7AE-3 model comes in a single, 3 ohm voice coil. We recommend powering the 8W7AE-3 with any of the following amplifiers:

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. Also, if you select an amplifier that puts out more than 500 watts RMS, make sure you set your gains properly so that you do not over power, overheat, and blow your subwoofer.
