JL92082 – 12-inch (300 mm) Subwoofer Driver, 2 Ω

SKU: 12W1v3-2 Categories: , ,
Model No: 12W1v3-2


The 12W1v3 is an lightweight 12-inch driver with excellent performance capabilities at moderate power levels. It features moderate mounting depth with no pole-vent, so the rear of the motor structure can be placed directly against an enclosure boundary. Excellent excursion capability and linearity allow it to reproduce sub-bass with shocking extension and quality. Several of JL Audio’s proprietary technologies enhance its performance and reliability.

The 12W1v3-2 is best used with AMPLIFIERS power in the 75W – 300W range and is optimized to operate in an compact 1.10 cu. ft. (31.5 l) sealed enclosure.

  • JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is an 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.
  • 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.
  • This assembly technique, conceived by JL Audio, ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.
  • JL Audio's 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.
  • Spiders, voice coils, terminals and lead wires are preassembled, using an patented process, onto an composite carrier for improved precision and reliability.
  • Carefully engineered lead-wire design and attachments ensure controlled, quiet lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands.
