At first glance, you're likely to notice the striking cast alloy frame design of the 10W6v2. These frames are much more than cosmetic enhancements, having been specifically engineered to provide increased clearance for greater excursion and to incorporate their patented Elevated Frame-Cooling technology. This cooling scheme directs high-velocity air flow over the top surface of the top-plate and onto the upper portion of the voice coil windings (the two hottest parts on a woofer). For style points, the mounting flange of the frame is dressed with a removable black trim ring (Patented) which can be painted to match the theme of the installation.
Key Technologies of JL Audio's W6v2 Series Subwoofers:
DMA Optimized Motor System
Like the W7's, the 10W6v2 subwoofers benefit from JL AUDIO's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system (DMA). This advanced technology allows us to optimize motor behavior, while taking into account the effects of real power flowing across the voice coil. The result is dynamically stable and linear motor behavior, which translates directly into reduced distortion and improved transient performance.
Plateau-Reinforced Spider Attachment
A derivative of JL Audio's famous VRC technology, this bulletproof suspension attachment relieves stress from the spider material at high excursions for enhanced reliability.
W-Cone Design and Floating Cone Attach
The diaphragm design also relies on W7 technology, utilizing their W-Cone™ (Patented) design and Floating Cone Attach Method (Patented). This results in a lightweight, stiff and critically aligned moving assembly (again enhancing sound quality).
The diaphragm also incorporates a new (Patent-Pending) NeckVent design that vents at the neck of the lower cone body work in conjunction with the pole vent's airflow to effectively remove hot air during high power operation, leading to improved sound quality and reliability.
Engineered Lead-Wire System and Terminal Jumper System
Co-extruded lead out wire works in conjunction with critically engineered entry and exit support structures to achieve flawless high-excursion operation. The flying lead design does not compromise spider linearity or radial stability, unlike "woven-in" lead wire designs. These co-extruded, insulated lead wires lead to a configurable patch panel which makes it easier and cleaner to interconnect the dual voice coil windings. A single pair of high-grade push terminals acts as a main input connection.
Large, Progressive-Roll Spider
The result of intense computer analysis and optimization, W6v2 spiders provide precise control and motor/voice coil alignment without prematurely limiting excursion.
The End Result...
All this technology comes together to deliver subwoofers that excel in thermal power handling, linear excursion capability and dynamic stability; all of which contribute to the original goals: The ability to have amazing low-frequency extension in compact enclosures, razor sharp definition of complex bass material and audiophile sound quality at any volume level...
