Depth

Ty, Crutchfield

  • Summary: A little boomy but amazing depth in frequency response out of a tiny enclosure. I replaced an MM840DVC that I had blown with this. While I might say that the Polk was more accurate the JL achieves much better low end which is a fair trade for me.
  • Pros: Good power handling. Incredible performance from tiny enclosures. Astonishing bass response for an 8".
  • Cons: Boomy. Could be more accurate with more acoustically oriented music.

Nice for an 8

  • Summary: I love the 8w3v3 I have it in a nissan d21 pickup, and it hits extremely well. I've had people ask if I have two 12s in my truck. It's really nice to suprise people when my old truck bumps. Definitely will stick to JL in the future

  • Summary: Great product. Give it some power, build it a great box, and prepare to have your mind blown by a tiny little 8" sub. Great product for bass in a tight space.
  • Pros: Great sound. Handles a lot of power. Looks good and sounds good.
  • Cons: None so far.

Best 8 inch Sub EVER!

Chase, Crutchfield
29 March 2015
  • Summary: Incredible sound for an 8" sub. Also fits in a very small box. I replaced my 2002 factory sub in the back with this and it made all of the difference. I've also tried it in a 4 door truck, again great like a good 10" sub. Also in 2 Cameron's and it never disappointed me.
  • Pros: -Small air space -Packs a punch -Has great extended bass and lows (similar to a 12") -Great classy look
  • Cons: Mounting depth (but not a big deal for the sound you get).

Nice subs

Ryan "Dirt Dog", Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: Awesome quality of sound. I have them in a sealed enclosure presently(.55 cu. each), powered by a 500w JL amp wired @ 2 ohm. I am planning to build an OEM spec. labyrinth vent box and expect to increase output. So far I like them and will update the outcome.

JL Audio 8 inch (8W3V3-4OHM) speaker review

RazorTech420, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Awesome bass output so much it's astounding, very loud clean bass make your vehicle go pounding! Haha yeah.. Nice JL 8 inch woofer has superb sound quality and fits my needs perfectly! Also, remember that this is an 8.. an EIGHT not a 12 or 15 but will deliver sweet bass for such a small speaker.

JL Audio 8W3v3-4

MikefromMass, Crutchfield
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Nice moderate power sub. Great choice for small spaces or simple installs. I've had this sub in a few cars in 6 years. I've had it powered by an MTX Thunder sub pushing 200W RMS x 1 @ 4ohms while running component speaker sets off Kenwood Excelon head units in all applications.
  • Pros: Great for tight spaces and/or vehicles where the sub is installed within the passenger compartment. You can totally embarrass factory "premium" systems using this sub as your centerpiece. 4-way power from a higher-end head unit and a couple hundred watts to this JL sub and it's not even a contest.
  • Cons: Probably not enough for bass heads in trunk installs. A 10" will probably be more to your liking.
