JL Audio (13W3v3-2) - 13.5in (345mm) Subwoofer Driver, 600 Watt, 2 Ohm


W3v3 13.5-inch Subwoofer Driver (600 Watts, 2 Ohm)

If you have the space, it makes a tremendous sense to maximize your subwoofer system's piston area to enhance efficiency (and output). It gets even better when the larger driver delivers additional power handling and excursion. For the preceding reasons, the 13W3v3 can be the best choice for those seeking high output with great sound quality at medium power levels.

As with the smaller W3v3's, several exclusive JL Audio technologies and proprietary assembly techniques are applied to the 13W3v3 to enhance linearity and reliability.

The 13W3v3-2 is best used with amplifier power in the 150W - 600W range and is optimized to operate in a moderate size 1.75 cu. ft. (49.6 l) sealed enclosure, or a 2.5 cu. ft. (70.8 l) ported enclosure. Detailed enclosure recommendations can be found in "The 13W3v3-2 Product Manual".


DMA Optimized - Dynamic Motor Analysis - DMA Optimized Motor
JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, first developed by JL Audio in 1997 and refined over the years to scientifically address the issue of speaker motor linearity. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass

Elevated Frame Cooling - Elevated Frame Cooling (U.S. Patent #6,219,431 & #6,229,902)
JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.

FCAM - Floating Cone Attach Method - FCAM (U.S. Patent #6,501,844)
This assembly technique, conceived by JL Audio, ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.

VRC - Vented Reinforcement Collar (U.S. Patent #5,734,734)
JL Audio's patented Vented Reinforcement Collar (VRC) improves the rigidity and stability of the cone/spider/voice coil junction and directs airflow over the voice coil windings for improved thermal performance.

Insert Molded Suspension / Coil / Terminal Sub-Assembly - Insert Molded Suspension / Coil / Terminal Sub-Assembly (U.S. Patent #7,379,558)
Spiders, voice coils, terminals and lead wires are preassembled, using a patent-pending process, onto a composite carrier for improved precision and reliability.

Customizable Trim Ring - Customizable Trim Ring (U.S. Patent #D480,709)
This removable ring can be painted to match the installation theme and directly receives JL Audio grille mesh inserts (sold separately).

Engineered Lead-Wire System - Engineered Lead-Wire System (U.S. Patent #7,356,157)
Carefully engineered lead-wire design and attachments ensure controlled, quiet lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands.

Built in U.S.A. - Precision Built in U.S.A.
JL Audio's Miramar, Florida loudspeaker production facility is one of the most advanced in the world.

At a time when most audio products are built overseas, JL Audio's commitment to in-house loudspeaker production continues to grow. All W7's, W6's, TW5's, TW3's, TW1's, W3v3's and some of our ZR products. We also build our Marine Speaker Systems, Home Subwoofers, Stealthbox products and the vast majority of our enclosed subwoofer systems in Florida.

To pull this off in a competitive world market, our production engineering team has created one of the world's most advanced loudspeaker assembly facilities. This commitment to state-of-the-art technology allows our highly skilled workforce to efficiently build JL Audio products to extremely high quality standards.

While it is also feasible to build good quality products overseas (and we do build some of our products in Europe and Asia), it can be challenging when the product's technology is innovative or complex. Since most of our premium loudspeakers incorporate proprietary, patented technologies requiring specific assembly techniques, we prefer that the people who design them have close access to the people manufacturing them.

JL Audio - Ahead of the curve.

* Xmax specifications are derived via one-way voice coil overhang method with no correction factors applied.
** Efficiency (1 W / 1 m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
