13w7

  1. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    So I plan on building a sealed JL 13w7 with EQ to hit 20hz flat, to power that little beast I was wondering if I should get an Behringer EP2500 or a Crown XLS 2502. Personally I'd like to go with the Crown, better efficiency + no need of mods for silence, but I wonder if it can handle the task...

    I am currently being offered a JL 13W7 that has been refoamed. How much impact does it have in the speaker performance and parameters? I really wish to buy it, as it's being sold for 6/10th of the price. But will it be worth? Thanks guys

    I just acquired a JL audio 13w7, and have both a Crown CE4000 amp and a Crown Macro-tech 3600, plus a minidsp. I'm interested in a sealed build to go along with some other subs I have. I was trying to use WINISD to calculate some box parameters, but not so sure I'm getting the right answers...

    I got a nice 13W7 sub for super cheap, I would like to use it in a sealed box of 2.75 cf. Its a dual 1.5 voice coil, what would be a good pro amp to power it? I was looking at the QSC 1802 or ep4000. With the EP4000 putting out around 650 true watts stereo 4 ohm, any idea how many watts at 3...

    I have 2 10w7s and a 13w7. I want to put either the 2 10w7s or the 13w7 in my car and the other setup in my house. I am a complete amateur when it comes to hooking this stuff up so what amp should I use for either application and how do I hook it up properly to match up the ohms? I am not an...

    Can anyone provide design dimensions and tune advice for a top vented Sonosub using this JL Audio Driver, 50% music and 50% HT. It will be a passive set-up with a min 1000W powering it, also any advice on 3 ohm stable amps is appreciated as well. Thanks in advance for your input. Driver...

    I actually built this sub a while ago (like 3-4 years) but I never took actual BUILD pictures, I had been experiencing a little rattling from the passive radiators just opened the sub up to see what was going on today: it turns out that the adhesive had failed where the pole piece met with the...

    Ok, so I'm in the process of finishing off my basement and I am going to place 2 JL 13w7 at the front as sort of a large stage below the screen. I can go roughly 68" wide for each and that will fill out the width of the room. I had figured about 20" tall (20" is the maximum) and 24" deep with...

    I have a 13w7 already so this is the sub I am working with. It sounded great in my car in a ported box. I would like to use it now for my HT, but I know little about HT, box types, and home amps. I am still learning and searching the net for other 13w7 home installs at the same time. The size...

    I just finished building a ported sub enclosure for a JL 13W7 subwoofer. The enclosure measures 31.5"w x 31.5"d x 31.5"t with a 3" x 13" x 40" port (actually I think the port ended up at 3.75" x 12.25" x 40") from 3/4" MDF. It is currently being powered by a crown xs1200 amp from a single...

    Has anyone tried JL Audio 13W7 in the prowedge JL Audio (sealed) box for HT application? I have 12W7 ProWedge in the car for some years and have been always impressed with the way it sounds. I can get a good deal on 13w7 in the pro wedge box and thought about using it at home. I wonder how...

    I have a 13W7 that is currently in my second car. Since I rarely drive the car, I figured the sub would get more use in my HT. I have never built an enclosure before, but I am willing to learn. To get started what would be a good volume and tuning for this project? The parameters are as follows...
