JL Audio W6v3 Subwoofer Drivers

Since 1993, JL Audio W6 subwoofers have consistently defined bass excellence in small enclosures. In 2002, the original formula reached a new level with the W6v2’s, which have had a remarkable ten-year run as go-to drivers for quality-focused installations.

For 2012, JL Audio is introducing the W6v3’s with a slew of advances, representing two years of intense effort from the company’s engineering department. These upgrades generate very noticeable performance increases in the form of greater output, sharper dynamics and improved overall sound quality.

The hearts of the W6v3’s are their motor systems, featuring larger field plates and magnet assemblies than those used on v2’s. These more powerful motor systems have been critically refined via JL Audio’s proprietary DMA system to deliver exceptional linear excursion and dynamic stability. Further enhancing performance is a new motor cooling circuit design, featuring a patented pole vent designed to improve cooling efficiency and reduce power compression. The voice coil configuration remains a dual 4 ohm design with a terminal jumper system to allow parallel or series wiring.

New suspensions feature a wide rubber surround and a new progressive-roll spider to control the increased excursion capability. The cones are also new, and include a silver accent ring that creates a classy new look in combination with the satin black cast alloy basket.

W6v3’s are ready for another decade of sound quality dominance.

Key Improvements over W6v2’s:

• Larger, more powerful motor systems 12W6v3: 20% larger 10W6v3: 26% larger

• Greater linear excursion capability: 12W6v3: 14% more than W6v2 10W6v3: 23% more than W6v2

• More durable rubber surround

• Improved cooling circuit design (patented)

Overview:

• Small sealed enclosure volume requirements

• Very long linear excursion capability: 0.74 in / 18.8 mm, one-way

• High power handling

• DMA-optimized motor designs

• New, patent-pending pole cooling system and patented elevated frame cooling

• Patented “floating cone attach method” technology

• Plateau reinforced spider attach (RC)

• Cast alloy frame

• Jacketed lead-wire system

• Injection molded, mineral-filled polypropylene cone

• Rubber surround

• Precision-built in USA at JL Audio’s Miramar, Florida factory

StealthMod bridging the gap between a basic subwoofer addition and a full, custom system solution

A StealthMod is a complete, JL Audio-engineered upgrade package that builds on a Stealthbox installation with well thought-out amplification and/or speaker system modifications. The goal is to provide maximum performance value with minimal modification to the vehicle and little visual evidence of its installation. By taking the guesswork out of the system design, equipment selection and installation, JL Audio can offer customers a high-quality, reliable audio upgrade at a very reasonable price. Every aspect of the installation has been thoroughly researched and tested: from the interface with the factory head unit, to the power wiring and the speaker installation. In addition to detailed instructions, the installer will find all the necessary brackets, wiring products, fasteners and adaptors to complete the installation. This significantly cuts down installation time, compared to a custom system approach. The end result is an audio upgrade that completely blows away the factory audio system, not only with improved sub-bass, but with better performance across-the-board.

StealthMod includes:

• Stealthbox subwoofer system

• Component speaker upgrades

• System amplifier with remote level control

• Wiring (power, speaker and signal)

• Brackets, adaptors and hardware

Detailed installation and setup instructions StealthMod systems for the following cars are shipping now:

• Kia Soul

Suggested Retail: USD $1449.95/each

• Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

Suggested Retail: USD $2399.95/each

• BMW X5 (with premium audio)

Suggested Retail: USD $1899.95/each

More models will be released during the course of 2012. Stay tuned.
