Question about Jl Audio 12W3 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Need a new surround for '96 JL AUDIO W6 12"

Stopped using my 12" W6 when I noticed a portion of the surround had deteriorated. Several years later when I was searching for a new surround I had no luck finding any reputable Authorized dealer who would help.

Is this a lost cause?

It is rip in to little piecies


It may not be worth the expense, but if the cone or surround are torn, they can be replaced by a speaker repair shop. I just had a pair of JL 10W6's re-edged (the foam surround around the cone deteriorated after 11 years), and the repair cost $100 for the pair, including parts.

The foam surround on my subs are cracked and torn. I need them repaired. Would it be more ideal to buy new subs or get these w7's repaired?


wow i won't throw them away or anything like that. You can always go down to your local JL Audio dealer to see how much to refoam the subs. Lot cheaper then buy new ones..... That's the way i would go.. Hope this was helpfull

It just stopped working after about 4 years. the amp went in and out a couple of times then it just stopped working.


ok what type of amp are we talking about, what impedence and voice coils are your subs, and have you checked power, ground, fuses, etc... a quality amplifier kicker, jl, mtx, rockford... etc... should, if set up and wired properly, last you a very long time... I actually had a kicker amp since 96 and it still worked great to the day i gave it to my buddy... That's 11 years old with no issues...

500/1 sub amp stopped working, burnt rubber smell


It sounds like the power supply failed. Generally when the supply fails in that amp, you have to replace all 8 of the power supply FETs and all 8 of the 47 ohm surface mount resistors. Many times, the supply fails because one or two of the output transistors have failed.

If you want to have JL repair it, you MUST go through an authorized JL dealer.

If you have a good local repair shop, they should be able to repair it.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Sticky Situation


you have to send it to JL to have them replace the whole voice coil, surround and motor structure assembly. I can sell you a new sub with full JL factory warranty for about 475$ shipped to your door straight from their warehouse.
