Tom R., Crutchfield

  • Summary: Ok great replacement for my old JL Sub after my son burnt out one of the DVC in it. That JL Sub lasted about 13 yrs. I bought this new Sub to replace it in the original custom sealed box that was made for 02 Accord back in the day from Good Guys store that went out of business years ago so I had no...
  • Pros: Cost was very reasonable, great sound, tight accurate bass in a sealed box. also bought the mesh push on grills in order to dress it up some.
  • Cons: like anything else would be nice if it was free lol

JL Audio 12W3v3 4 OHM

  • Summary: Everything about this sub is high quality, the sound, the frequency response, and the clean look. I bought this sub because I wanted high-quality sound and a low frequency response and have been pleased. Plus I enjoy that the sub doesn't have tacky graphics or a look to it, it looks professional.
  • Pros: Quality sound and frequency response Clean and professional look
  • Cons: none

Buy! but, please read before buying

  • Summary: I read through some of these reviews and some people weren't getting good results . You have to match everything for them to sound excellent! Are u using a proper box and amp? These substances are tremendous. I was disappointed too when I first got them. I went through about 3 boxes.
  • Pros: Great quality sound. With the right set up they get pretty low. They do hit hard
  • Cons: I would like them to hit lower but it's not the subs fault because they're not rated below 22 Hz so it's really not a con per se

Overall Experience

Anonymous, Crutchfield

  • Summary: If you want clean deep bass, get one of these in a sealed box. If you want it to be loud, add another in a a sealed box. The biggest mistake I see is under powering subs by people thinking there amp is pushing out 1200 watts.
  • Pros: Response time for hitting each note. Sound Quality. Deep smooth ever lasting bass. Clean and clear. Bends well with mids and highs so you can't tell the bass is coming from a certain location. Not over powering but enough to give you deep rich quality low notes.
  • Cons: You get what you pay for and this will help you achieve the near pure sound as it should be heard.

Great Mid-Priced Subwoofer

JohnyC, Crutchfield
4 April 2014
  • Summary: Had this sub powered by a Kenwood KAC-7202 until it was stolen, it was the best system I had of many. At the time I bought it because it was on sale and was tired of the big box store cheapo specials and remembered my friend having a 10w0 back high school that was really good.
  • Pros: smooth design, clear musical tones, strong bass
  • Cons: at the high end for a budget oriented system, but you may only need one subwoofer.

Unbelievable SPL and SQ!

28 March 2014
  • Summary: I am running two of these 4 ohm subs with a JL Audio XD 600/1 amp. I started with just one of these subs but upgraded to two very shortly after to get it a little louder and it made a HUGE difference. This is without a doubt the best setup I have ever had in my car.
  • Pros: SPL and SQ
  • Cons: Pricey but still worth it.

  • Pros: High wattage capacity Quality is excellent True frequency response without distortion
  • Cons: none
