Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: The JL Audio slot-ported BassWedge subwoofer enclosure
is designed around two of JL Audio's 10" W0v3-4 (4Ω) subwoofers. Aggressive
tuning delivers powerful bass without the need for a huge amplifier. The MDF enclosure
is covered with gray carpet and has JL AUDIO logos embroidered across the top and
front. The enclosure design offers a variety of installation options: forward, rear
or down firing. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on
the same plane as the woofer; the port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises.
Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of nickel-plated,
high current spring posts; the subwoofers are internally wired in parallel to the
single terminal, presenting a 2Ω load to the amplifier. The posts are located
on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana
plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.
W0v3 Woofer Features:
- Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL
Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior.
As a result of DMA optimization, the 10W0v3-4 motor displays
linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintains
a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power
range. The result is a reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced
transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
- Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame
design of the 10W0v3-4 delivers cool air through slots directly
above the top plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances
power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic
parameter shifts and power compression.
- Rear Gasket: The woofer has a rear gasket
to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.
- Long Excursion: The subwoofer has an
Xmax of 11.4mm, giving you louder bass with less distortion.
Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-10 grilles (item number
136SGR1031, sold separately and individually) can be added to protect the woofer
Dimensions: The CP210-W0v3 enclosure isn't symmetrical; it's
approximately 29-5/8" wide, 13-7/8" tall at its tallest point (toward
the front), 12" tall at its shorted point (toward the back), 17-1/2"
deep at the base, and 14" deep at the top.
