If you're willing to do the repair yourself, there is an Internet site - Simply Speakers -that sells repair kits for speakers ,including speaker surrounds.

I did two 10" drivers and it worked 100%. ..

Can you push a w6 with a 1500 phantom boss amp?


I can assume that phantom 1500 is a 1500 watt amp? but still the amp will have more than enough power to push a w6, w7,and even in pairs. Single w6 can handle 600 watts rms, thus you will need to turn the gain all the way down so that the speaker won't over powered and that can lead to breaking the sub.

Shuts off when the volume gets turned up didnt do this wen new


A mono amp usually can handle only two 4 ohm subs. You see when you hook up two subs in parallel it drops the ohms too 2 ohms and 3 in parellal drops it to 1 ohms overheating the amp and cause power failure. Unless you bought a Mono amp thats 1ohm stable. But still I've seen cheap 1 ohm stable amps not last long. Also possible your subs are fried too check them with a multimeter and measure each sub ohms.

How 2 wire 3 jl audio w6 v2


Hello mikey4569mky,

Unless your amp is stable below 1 ohm, there's really only one wiring solution. And that is to series the voice coils making each sub 8 ohms, then parallel all 3 subs to the amp for a 2.67 ohm load. If you parallel the voice coils and then parallel the subs, the impedance will be 0.67 ohms, much too low for most amps.

You could parallel the voice coils and then series the subs for a 6 ohm load, but the amp won't put as many watts into a 6 ohm load. Most are optimized for 4 ohms or 2 ohms. And it's not good to run subs in series anyway.

Here's the wiring diagram.

Hope this helps.

What does the W1 part of the 8W1 description mean? I know the 8 represents 8 inches, but confused about the other paramaters


The w1 is just the model number of the subwoofer like w1 is the entry level sub w3 is the intermediate sub the w6 is their competition level and the w7 is the holy mother of god sub for extremist. Over the years they have used different models for instance in the early 2000s----they used W0 and W2 and W6 with the W6 being their old top model- looks like nowadays they are going with W1V2,W3V2,W6V2 and the almighty W7-hope that answers your questions -if you are looking for the speakers specifications just go to jl audio.com and look into the discontinued models and it will break it down for you

I need to find a good sub box for my 10 inch JL w6


Hello ama1228a,

You did not say what type of vehicle the box is to be mounted into. Many times, where the box goes dictates the shape and size you have to work with.

That JL W6 will work OK in a sealed box with as little as .625 CuFt of volume and a ported box with .75 CuFt, so you have lots of choices.

Here's a link to the PartsExpress box page. These are Goldwood boxes, so don't let the prices scare you away. They really are built well, and one of them will make your JL sound good.

Hope this helps.

Jl audio 500/1 amp low ohm light at high volume


I would try running the subs in parallel. Pos to Pos Dual Voice, Neg to Neg Dual Voice. Then Run + to + stereo - to - stereo on both channels.
So you have + and - running to one channel and + and - running to the other channel.
Also your LPF filter could be set too high.
