TW3 12-inch Subwoofer Driver (400 W, dual 8 Ω voice coils)
Building on the core technology of our TW5 thin-line subwoofers, the TW3's deliver a powerful combination of shallow mounting depth and excursion capability. In fact, they are capable of greater excursion than the W3v3's.
To allow this remarkable feat to be achieved, JL Audio's patented thin-line woofer technology compresses the architecture of the TW3's using a "concentric tube" structure built into the injection-molded cone body. This structure supports the voice coil and a full annular spider, while permitting the placement of the large motor structure further forward in the speaker than with conventional designs.
TW3's are optimized for small enclosures and offer our tab-ear mounting design to maximize cone area within their mounting footprints. We know you're going to love working with these amazing subwoofer drivers.
Deep, powerful and accurate JL Audio bass is now possible in more applications than ever.

JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a 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.Engineered Lead-Wire System (U.S. Patent #7,356,157)
Carefully engineered lead-wire design and attachments ensure controlled, quiet lead-wire behavior under the most extreme excursion demands.Tab-Ear Frame Design
This frame design feature facilitates mounting the subwoofer driver in tight spaces.Concentric Tube Suspension
