JL Audio 8W7 Review

The JL Audio 8W7 is the 8-inch version of its’s W7 line. The W7 series is JL Audio’s most recent car subwoofer release and is known as the most technologically advanced out of any of the JL Audio products. The entire line features six new, patented technologies never before seen in the lineup, mostly because none of the previous products, remade in a second version or not, can even relate; JL Audio built the W7 series from scratch and not from a previous model. The W7 series focuses on sound quality and volume at the same time; that is, JL Audio wants to see how loud they can turn the party up without having to sacrifice the sound.

The 8-inch version has drawn numerous positive reviews from car audio experts and leading organizations. Car Sound and Performance calls it the “best damn 8-inch subwoofer ever made”. It’s small, yet powerful, and the 8-inch subwoofer has never been made so well in so long. It’s really no wonder that it’s getting rave reviews. JL Audio has certainly taken advantage of the situation and brought the little ones to own the bigger ones.

It is reported that this 8-inch version almost didn’t make it to the final lineup. The 21st century is thinking that bigger is definitely better, but that’s not the case here. The smallest version, a size rarely seen in the lines of other companies, has proven to be just as powerful as the other, more popular sizes. While the competition is racing to see how big it can make subwoofers without losing power and quality, They suddenly dropped a smaller size, which broke the stereotype that smaller subwoofers won’t do much good at all.

A feature that seems insignificant at first, the owner’s manual is actually quite important when it comes down to the actual installation and optimization of the JL Audio 8W7. Many consider it’s owner’s manual one of the best, because it not only includes the standard enclosure recommendations and specifications, but also includes recommended amplifiers to pair up with the 8W7 and tips to get the best out of the system through tweaking without busting it.

Overall, if you want to downsize from a 10-inch or 12-inch subwoofer, or want to try something different that’s hard to find on the market, the JL Audio 8W7 is a nice place to start. It takes everything people love about the 10 and 12 inch pieces, upgrades it, and repackages it as an 8 inch. Seriously, if you want something that’s even more powerful than many other subwoofers on the market, you’ll want to choose the W7 line. But if you want something that’s compact and does the same, you’ll want to choose the 8W7.
