JL Audio 12W7AE-3 12" 3-Ohm Component Subwoofer
For the 10th anniversary of the W7 subwoofer, JL Audio marked this important milestone by discontinuing the W7 lineup. In place of the original W7 is the W7AE, which is identical to the 'regular' W7 with the exception of a few cosmetic modifications. The outlandish performance remains - this massive subwoofer is best suited for hardcore bass junkies or for competition use. The 12W7AE is 'overbuilt' for a good reason - this subwoofer boasts over an inch of excursion, combined with more cone surface area than any comparable 12-inch subwoofer. Bass output is tremendous - when placed in a proper enclosure, even a single 12W7AE can drown out most multi-subwoofer setups that competitors offer. All W7AE models require substantial power for best performance - in this case, JL Audio recommends anywhere from 400-1000W RMS.
