The TW5 thin woofer used for the IWS-SYS-1 and IWS-SYS-2 in-wall subwoofers requires high precision to manufacture . . .
. . . as a result, JL Audio uses an Epson robot in conjunction with their workers to create this unit in-house.
The robot works with two people to glue and assemble the cone, voice coil, and basket for the TW5. All three must work in synch since the drivers are assembled on a rotating table.
This precise process includes the application of the ultra-thin bead of glue around the voil coil that attaches to the cone.
At JL Audio, quality is paramount for every aspect. A laser is used to perfectly align the logo on the cone.
The motor structure of the TW5 is mounted with care.
As with every driver made at JL Audio, the TW5 undergoes strict quality-control testing before being forwarded to final assembly, where they're inserted into the IWS-SYS-1 and IWS-SYS-2 in-wall subwoofer enclosures.
