Product Details

JL Audio W7AE 12" Subwoofer Driver, Model 12W7AE3

The W7AE embodies JL Audio's commitment to pushing the envelope of speaker technology, with six patented technologies and a completely unique set of component parts. Each W7AE model has been meticulously engineered to reproduce sub-bass with extreme fidelity at any volume level.


  • Highly Linear, DMA Optimized Motor System
    Highly optimized motor system delivers linear motor force over a wide range of excursion and power levels to reduce distortion

  • Ultra-Long Voice Coil
    To create an extreme linear range of operation, resulting in high output with minimal distortion

  • W-Cone
    A unit-body cone assembly that delivers astonishing cone stiffness with minimal mass

  • OverRoll
    Utilizes space wasted in conventional designs to maintain cone area while permitting a large surround

  • Elevated Frame-Cooling
    Provides additional cooling by directing air flow over the top-plate and onto the voice coil windings

  • Radially Cross-Drilled Pole-Piece
    An innovative venting system which greatly enhances power handling by directing air flow into the voice coil gap

  • Floating Cone Attach Method
    Ensures proper surround geometry and moving parts alignment in the assembled speaker

  • Plateau-Reinforced Spider Attachment
    Provides strain relief for the spider material at extreme excursion levels.

  • Huge Diameter, Progressive-Roll Spider
    Provide precise centering and linear compliance over a wide range of excursion to further reduce distortion.

  • Co-Extruded, Double Lead-Wires
    Carefully engineered lead wire system controls motion and relieves stress without compromising spider linearity.
