The JL Audio 12W7 is a 12" audio subwoofer, in the W7 product series. This series provides models in 8, 10, 12 and 13 inches. The core design is consistent across the product line. The first number represents the size in inches for the surface area of the speaker. The 12W7 offers a free air resonance of 27.2 Hz and a thermal power handling of 1,000 W.
