With this package, you get two, JL Audio 12" W0 subwoofers, in a ported box, with a 500 watt JL Audio monoblock amplifier. This kit kicks ass.

The JL Audio 12" W0 subwoofers are the gold standard for entry-level, affordable subs. Each W0 subwoofer handles 300 watts RMS and has a single, 4 ohm voice coil. The subwoofers are wired in parallel within the enclosure to a 2 ohm load. You can't go wrong with the JL Audio 10" W0. These subwoofers have set the bar for affordable performance.

The JL Audio JD500/1 amplifier delivers the clean, hard-hitting power you expect from JL Audio at an affordable price point. The JD500/1 is rated at 500 watts at 2 ohms, making it a perfect match for the two, 10 inch W0 subwoofers. The amplifier accepts both high and low level inputs, it has LED clipping indicators, and variable crossovers with a 12dB/octave slope. The JD500/1 uses JL's NexD switching technology and has many of the same features used in the more expensive, RD and XD series amplifiers.

Our Honest Take

Let's not make this more difficult than it needs to be. You are getting a pair of 12" W0 subwoofers in a slot-ported box that was designed by JL Audio. The JD500/1 amplifier delivers 500 watts RMS, the perfect amount of power at 2 ohms. If you want to upgrade the amplifier to the RD500/1, the RD500/1 will hit harder and sound better, but it's more expensive. This kit as it is, with the JD500/1 is perfect if you want an affordable setup with two, W0 subs.

What else will I need?

If you don't already have these items, you will likely need them for installation
  • An Amp Wiring Kit - If you don't already have an amplifier wiring kit, make sure to get one. With this amplifier, an 8 AWG kit will be able to provide the power necessary for the amp. However, make sure your wiring kit uses full-spec, OFC copper, and not copper coated aluminum (CCA). If you go on eBay, or to that company named after a jungle in Brazil, and see an amp wiring kit for really cheap, chances are it is CCA. This robs your amplifier of power and it increases the fire risk. Don't spend the money on a quality product like JL Audio and then cheap out on the amp wiring. That would be like putting pump gas in a race car. Our Classic Car Stereos 4 AWG & 8 AWG amp wiring kits use full spec, OFC copper wire and include a 17 foot RCA cable
  • Speaker Wire or RCA Cable for Input- If you buy our wiring kit, a 2 channel, 17 foot RCA cable is included. If you are using the high level inputs from your radio, you will need speaker wire to splice from your existing speaker wire, or to connect to the back of the radio.
  • Speaker Wire to RCA Adapter - If you choose high-level inputs, you will need speaker level to RCA adapters.
  • Speaker Wire - You need to connect your subwoofer to your amplifier.
  • Bass Knob (Optional) - Adding a bass knob lets quickly and easily adjust the level of your subwoofer. Every song and recording is different and so are the bass levels. The bass knob lets you adjust the bass to your personal preference, prevent distortion, and extend the life of your subwoofer.
