The JL Audio 13TW5 subwoofer has received accolades worldwide for its unique design and innovative technology.

Miramar, FL -October, 2008 -The JL Audio 13TW5 subwoofer has received accolades worldwide for its unique design and innovative technology. Recently the 13TW5 received one of the highest honors to date from the respected European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) who chose it as a Best Product 2008 -2009. The awards ceremony was held during the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) Trade Show in Berlin.


The EISA Awards are chosen annually by a panel of judges representing more than 50 prominent photo, video, audio, home theater, and mobile electronics magazines from up to 20 European countries. Qualifying products are judged for their ultimate expression of design that combines advanced technology, desirable features, ergonomic design, and represent the greatest value for money.

As quoted from the Award Citation of the EISA Jury:
"JL Audio´s many years of experience in high quality subwoofers has directed its development of this extremely shallow subwoofer. By employing many new, patented technologies in the 13TW5 -3, JL Audio has managed to create a drive unit that measures just a little over 60 mm thick - and compromises neither sound quality nor sound pressure. By incorporating a huge seven -inch voice coil (built to house the magnet) and advanced materials, this subwoofer can handle up to 1,200 Watts of power. JL Audio even made the 13.5 -inch cone fit a normal 12 -inch mounting aperture, and it requires only a very shallow 23 -litre enclosure. All in all the 13TW5 -3 provides a fascinating blend of newest technology, high -tech construction and outstanding sound quality in its class."

According to Andy Oxenhorn, President of JL Audio, "We are very proud of our engineering team's efforts in creating the shallow design of the 13TW5, which allows it to perform flawlessly in space challenged vehicles. And we are extremely honored to receive this award and recognition for our efforts by the top consumer electronics journalists in Europe."

The JL Audio 13TW5 subwoofer is available worldwide. Each speaker is made in the U.S.A. and features proprietary designs registered protected by two U.S. Patents with other U.S. and International Patents Pending.
