This kit includes the JL Audio CS112LG-TW3 dual 12 inch TW1 loaded enclosure and a JD500/1 500 watt amplifier.
The CS212LG-TW3 is a loaded enclosure with two, 12 inch TW1 subwoofers that has been wired to a 2 ohm load. Each 12 inch TW1 subwoofer handles 300 watts RMS, giving the enclosure itself the ability to handle 600 watts RMS from the amplifier. The sealed enclosure is designed and optimized by the team at JL Audio for maximum performance and output from the TW1 subwoofers.
The TW1 subwoofers are surprising with their output. These subwoofers are super clean, they hit hard, and they are nice and "punchy" in this sealed enclosure. One of the benefits of the JL Audio TW1 and this enclosure is the width of the subwoofers. The mounting ring on the TW1's are chopped off which allows you to mount them closer together. In addition, the box doesn't need to be as tall. When you compare the output and the size of the enclosure, there aren't many loaded enclosures that can compete with the CS212LG-TW1. Many "shallow" subwoofers available for cars sound shallow, the TW1 subs do not. The CS112LG-TW3 comes covered with high-quality, black carpet with "JL Audio" embroidery and subwoofer grilles pre-installed.
The JL Audio JD500/1 amplifier delivers 500 watts RMS at 2 ohms, making it a great match for the 12 inch TW3 subwoofer. Since the TW3 is rated at 400 watts RMS, you want to make sure you don't turn the gain up all the way and risk blowing the subwoofer.
The JD500/1 uses JL's NexD switching technology to efficiently deliver power to your subwoofer. The JD500/1 has many of the same technologies used in the RD500/1 and the XD series amplifiers, but the thermal management and internal components of the RD and the XD are better and thus more expensive. The JD500/1 comes with LED clipping indicators that allow you to determine where the radio clips on the input and where to set the gain on the amplifier to ensure that you never get a clipped signal. This helps extend the life of both your amplifier and your subwoofer while also providing a better listening experience, without distortion. The JD500/1 has a selectable, low-pass filter between 50-500Hz at 12dB/octave and accepts both high and low level inputs.
For quickly and easily adjust the bass level for each song and recording, don't forget to add the RBC-1 bass knob.
