JL Audio home audio flagship Gotham lends its technology to the Car Audio scene. And vice versa.

One company always known for its stellar audiophile bass is JL Audio.  They brought a multitude of new prefabricated subwoofer enclosures.  All the enthusiast needs to do is add proper amplification.  The premade JL Audio stuff is known as ProWedge.  And if you have a trunk, hatchback, or SUV, they make a lot of sense to get the bass you crave while trading off the amount of space you are willing to sacrifice.  A more custom route will get you more space, but if you can give up one grocery bag worth of stuff, JL has you covered with accurate low end.

I was going to post some photos of all of the JL Audio ProWedge systems, but better to go to www.jlaudio.com to them in person.  However, check out JL Audio’s flagship Gotham home subwoofer done in plexiglass done to show off its design.  This technology makes its way to the JL systems used for the car!

JL Audio, known for pushing the boundaries of bass reproduction in the mobile, marine, and home audio markets, has introduced four new ProWedge™ enclosed subwoofer systems that are compact in size and designed to deliver stunning output and stellar sonics in a variety of vehicles and applications.

Two new ProWedge™ models feature the popular W6v3 subwoofer drivers—the third generation of the W6 pedigree that represents a giant leap forward in the quest for small box bass perfection. The 10” 10W6v3 is featured in either a single or dual configuration. The CNC-Cut high grade MDF sealed enclosures are covered in black high-grade automotive carpet and are designed to deliver smooth, powerful and articulate bass.

Recommended amplifier power: 300-600W
Nominal Impedance: 2 ohm
Suggested Retail: $649.95

CS210G-W6v3: Dual-Opposed 10W6v3 10” subwoofers
Dual 5-way binding post wiring terminals are provided (one for each woofer). Each subwoofer driver’s voice coils are wired in series to 8 ohms (can be rewired in parallel to 2 ohms).

Recommended amplifier power: 600-1200W
Nominal Impedance: Dual 8 ohm (4 ohm in parallel)
Suggested Retail: $1249.95

A super-tough polymer grille is included to protect each subwoofer driver. Built in JL Audio’s factory in Miramar, FL, each enclosure proudly states, “Built in the USA” with the JL Audio logo embroidered into the side.

ProWedge™ TW3 Models
Two additional ProWedge™ models also make their debut, integrated with JL Audio’s ultra-thin, TW3 subwoofers that offer very shallow mounting depth, making them ideal for challenging installations that demand excellent output and fidelity. The 10” TW3 is featured in either a single or dual-opposed configuration. The CNC-Cut high grade MDF sealed enclosures are covered in black high-grade automotive carpet and are designed to deliver smooth, powerful and articulate bass. The drivers and enclosures are designed and built in JL Audio’s Miramar, FL factory incorporating multiple patented technologies. Stylish high-impact polymer grilles are included to protect each subwoofer driver. The ultra-compact design allows for unobtrusive placement in a wide range of vehicles.
