Product Details

JL Audio 8" Subwoofer Driver, Model 8W3V34

Clearly the best sounding W3's yet, these subwoofers feature DMA-optimized, long linear excursion capability to minimize distortion and increase output. W3v3's are available in single 2 ohm, 4 ohm and 8 ohm versions and are superb performers at medium power levels in compact sealed or ported enclosures. Multiple patented technologies enhance performance and reliability. As with JL Audio’s flagship drivers, development was guided by JL Audio’s proprietary DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis) modeling system to deliver outstanding dynamic stability and low-distortion operation within their intended power envelope. A mineral-filled polypropylene upper cone body with a metallic JL Audio logo medallion provides a classy new look, while a removable (and customizable) mounting flange trim ring receives grille-mesh inserts directly, without the need for additional grille hardware.


  • DMA Optimized Motor System
    DMA-optimized motor systems deliver highly consistent motor force over a long range of stroke and input power levels
  • Vented Reinforcement Collar
    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
    Nickel-plated brass push terminals combine with strain relief features to ensure solid contact and lead-wire reliability. All new, hybrid-weave, progressive-roll flat spiders are preassembled, using a patent-pending process, onto a composite carrier to ensure optimum alignment of the suspension
  • Elevated Frame-Cooling
    The elevated frame design of the W3v3 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
  • Floating Cone Attach Method (FCAM™)
    JL Audio’s patented Floating Cone Attach Method (FCAM™) allows the cone and surround to be aligned independently of the spider/coil assembly, improving pistonic motion
  • Surround Stress-Relief
    One-piece nitrile-butylene rubber (NBR) surround and gasket design works in conjunction with a stress-relief feature molded onto the lower cone edge to improve reliability. Injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene lower cone bodies with integral bracing features permit shallow cone profiles without compromising rigidity
