For 2012, JL Audio is introducing the W6v3's with a slew of advances, representing two years of intense effort from the company's engineering department. These upgrades generate very noticeable performance increases in the form of greater output, sharper dynamics and improved overall sound quality.

The hearts of the W6v3's are their motor systems, featuring larger field plates and magnet assemblies than those used on v2's. These more powerful motor systems have been critically refined via JL Audio's proprietary DMA system to deliver exceptional linear excursion and dynamic stability. Further enhancing performance is a new motor cooling circuit design, featuring a patented pole vent designed to improve cooling efficiency and reduce power compression. The voice coil configuration remains a dual 4 ohm design with a terminal jumper system to allow parallel or series wiring.

New suspensions feature a wide rubber surround and a new progressive-roll spider to control the increased excursion capability. The cones are also new, and include a silver accent ring that creates a classy new look in combination with the satin black cast alloy basket.

W6v3's are ready for another decade of sound quality dominance.

Key Improvements over W6v2's:
Larger, more powerful motor systems 12W6v3: 20% larger 10W6v3: 26% larger
Greater linear excursion capability: 12W6v3: 14% more than W6v2 10W6v3: 23% more than W6v2
More durable rubber surround
Improved cooling circuit design (patented)
