JL Audio 13.5" Thin-Line Subwoofer Driver, Model 13TW53

Creating great sounding bass is not that difficult when the available space in the vehicle is generous and you use high quality drivers. When space is limited (like in stealthy custom installations or behind the seats of a truck or sports car), achieving excellent low frequency performance becomes far more challenging. One way to deal with this is to use small subwoofer drivers, like our 6.5-inch or 8-inch models, but if the goal is higher output bass than the small drivers can comfortably deliver, a more potent solution is needed. This is precisely where the new TW5 subwoofers slot into the lineup, offering groundbreaking performance in the tightest space applications.

Features:

  • Extremely Shallow Mounting Depth (2.5 inches)
  • Extremely Small Sealed Enclosure Volume Requirements
  • Patented “Concentric Tube” Suspension Design
  • Patented “Floating Cone Attach Method” Technology
  • Very Large Diameter Voice Coil
  • Long Linear Excursion Capability
  • High Power Handling
  • Cast Alloy, Tab-Ear Frame
  • Injection Molded, Mica-Filled Polypropylene Cone with Santoprene Surround
  • Frame accepts JL Audio grille mesh inserts directly (SGR-12W3v3/12W1v2 for the 12TW5 and SGR-13W3v3/13W1v2 for the 13TW5). Grilles are sold separately
  • DMA Optimized Motor System
    DMA-optimized motor systems deliver highly consistent motor force over a long range of stroke and input power levels
  • Concentric Tube Suspension (U.S. Patent #5,734,132 & #6,095,280)
    The central technology of the TW5's permits excellent excursion within a very shallow design
  • Floating Cone Attach Method (FCAM™) (U.S. Patent #6,501,844)
    Allows the cone and surround to be aligned independently of the spider/coil assembly, improving pistonic motion

Footnote:

  1. * Xmax specifications are derived via one-way voice coil overhang method with no correction factors applied
  2. ** Efficiency (1W/1m) 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”
  3. *** Re (DC resistance) is measured with the voice coils in series, for parallel-wired specification divide Re by 4. All other specifications remain the same
