W7AE Subwoofer Drivers
The ultimate no-compromise subwoofer for those seeking extreme output and sublime sound quality.

The W7’s unique proposition is its ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality... all at the same time. The keys to these performance capabilities lie at the very core of loudspeaker design, where electromagnetic and mechanical behaviors combine in fiendishly complex ways. JL Audio’s intense research into these behaviors allows us to optimize W7 motor and suspension systems to faithfully reproduce every bass detail with unparalleled linearity and accuracy. Eight U.S. Patents have been issued for motor, suspension and assembly technologies used in the W7’s. Every W7 subwoofer is built to exacting quality standards in our Miramar, Florida factory and manifests our passionate pursuit of great audio.

Die W7 Subs besitzen die einzigartige Fähigkeit, extreme Leistung, präzise Dynamik und erhabene Klangqualität zur gleichen Zeit zu liefern. Der Schlüssel dazu liegt am ausgefeilten Lautsprecher-Design, bei dem alle elektromagnetischen und mechanischen Verhalten genauestens berücksichtigt wurden. Die intensive Forschung von JL Audio in diesem Bereich ermöglichte es, den W7 Magnetantrieb und das Federungssystem so zu optimieren, das die Basswiedergabe mit beispielloser Genauigkeit und Linearität reproduziert wird. Acht US-Patente kommen bei der Konstruktion zum Einsatz und jeder W7 Subwoofer wird mit sehr hohen Qualitätsstandards in der JL Audio Lautsprechermanufaktur in Miramar, Florida gefertigt.

Key Technologies:
• DMA-optimized motor systems = lower distortion & higher output
• Highly linear, FEA-optimized suspension = lower distortion and improved reliability
• W-Cone = low mass with excellent stiffness
• OverRoll Surround = extreme excursion without losing cone area
• Radial-Drilled Pole Piece = improved power handling by venting interior of gap
• Elevated Frame Cooling System = improved power handling by venting coil directly
• Plateau Reinforced Spider Attach (RC) = mechanical reinforcement of spider attachment
• FCAM Assembly System = improved moving parts alignment
• Lead Wire Management System = improved lead wire reliability with no effect on spider
