Miramar, Fla. – JL Audio has
upgraded its small-enclosure subwoofers for the car to deliver higher power
handling, greater output, and improved accuracy, the company said.
Version 3 of the company’s small-enclosure W6
subs ship in the second quarter. They’re priced at a suggested $599 for the
10-inch 10W6v3 and at $699 for the 12-inch 12W6v3. The subs require sealed
enclosures with volumes of 0.625 cubic feet and 1.25 cubic feet, respectively.
Improvements to the models include a motor
system that’s 20 percent larger on the 12-inch sub and 26 percent larger on the
10-inch sub, 14 percent greater linear excursion on the 12-inch and 23 percent
more on the 10-inch, an improved cooling circuit design, and a new suspension
system with wide rubber surround and progressive-roll spider to control the
increased excursion capability, the company said.
Both models are dual 4-ohm models with a
terminal-jumper system to allow for parallel or series wiring. Both models also
have a recommended power range of 200-600 watts.
