You’ll never listen to music the same way again when you have an 8W7AE-3 subwoofer propelling the bass. This 3-ohm driver was designed for the 10th anniversary of the W7 series subwoofers that redefined what was possible with in-car sound. The polypropylene W-Cone™ is attached directly to the voice coil to improve response time while maintaining accuracy. It’s one of six patented technologies that produce industry-leading performance. Other JL-exclusive features include the floating cone attach method, OverRoll™ surround and Elevated Frame Cooling for a strong and reliable subwoofer.
This precision design means remarkable sound whenever your JL W7 8” subwoofer gets puts to work. It’s optimized for 200-500W amplifiers and can swell to 1,000 watts when needed. The driver also requires a smaller enclosure than other similarly sized subwoofers. It’s no wonder the 8W7AE-3 is considered by many to be the best subwoofer ever. Both JL Audio and OnlineCarStereo.com provide a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. We’re an authorized dealer with audio experts available by phone or email.
This subwoofer driver has been called the "best damn 8-inch subwoofer ever made" for its remarkable performance capabilities and design attributes. An impressive linear excursion envelope that exceeds 0.75 in. (19 mm) one-way allows it to deliver impact well beyond the range of other 8-inch subwoofer drivers.
The 8W7AE is best used with amplifier power in the 200W - 500W range and is optimized to operate in a 0.875 cu. ft. (24.8 l) sealed enclosure, or a 1.0 cu. ft. (28.3 l) ported enclosure.

Sounds deadly for an 8". I blew mine up with jl500/1 in a year-ish. Will buy another one though. Don't know if all the hype was worth it.
Just want to say this is one bad A$$ little sub. I am pushing it with a Sony SM-1S which is a 500 watt RMS at 2 ohm. I figure it's putting about 400 watt into it. I first installed it in a simple seal box and after break in, this thing pumped some bass. Then I thought I'd try a ported box and all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this little 8 inch sub can put out some EXTREAM BASS!!!!!!!!!!!! If your looking for an 8 inch sub this is a must by. Don't waste time and $$$$$$$$ by trying other subwoofers you will only wind up buying this one if you are searching for the best sounding bass that $$$$$$$$ can buy.
