JL Audio offers an extensive line of high-performancesubwoofer drivers to fit a wide variety of enclosure and power applications. When designing systems with our drivers, it is very important to achieve a good power match between the subwoofer amplifier and the subwoofer driver's capabilities. The power levels listed in the above chart represent continuous (RMS) amplifier power per woofer and assume that the user will regularly make full use of that powerwithout drastically overdriving the amplifier(s). Make sure you factor system impedance and the total number of subwoofers into your calculations. Adhering to these power recommendations will result in systems that are both reliable and enjoyable.

o w n e r ’ s m a n u a l

Congratulations on your purchase of a JL Audio subwoofer component. Your JL Audio subwoofer is a precision loudspeaker which has been engineered to produce the highest quality sub-bassperformance in your vehicle. Authorized JL Audio dealers have extensive technical information for many different applications of your new speaker. They also have the knowledge, skills and tools to build ahigh-qualityenclosure that will maximize the performance of your speaker. We highly recommend that you have your enclosure built by an authorized JL Audio dealer.

Inside you will find specifications and two recommended enclosures for your speaker; one is a sealed enclosure, the other is a ported design. Both types of enclosures will give you excellent sound quality and low-frequencyextension. The sealed enclosure is a better choice if space is extremely tight, but the ported enclosure will produce 3dB more output at the same power if you have the extra space to work with.
