October 26, 2012 Cheap Price = Cheap Sub

I bought one of these subs just because I already had a ported box that fell within the recommended enclosure requirements. 1.8 cu ft tuned to 35 hz. First of all, the sub looks good from the front. the rear looks kinda cheezy. Its lightweight. OK construction. Installed in box. Noticed a rattling sound just moving box around on shop floor. Turns out to be the magnet cover. Tried it anyways. Powered it with a PPI Sedona 550.1 which should be perfect for this sub's rating.

The rattling sound got way loud. Immediately removed sub from enclosure and ripped the magnet cover off. That helped with the funky noise.

The sound output of this sub is pretty good for rock. If the box is tuned say around 40 hz, it should slam pretty good for the price. However, when the lows kick in, this sub falls off BAD!!!! Not good for Rap or Hip Hop. Sounded like it wasnt getting enough power, but I know it was.

All in all, not bad for the price, but not good enough to warrant purchasing again. Not really worth the time and effort to install these subs. Just a cheap experiment for me.

I owned the HFI (previous model) and loved it. This new version is cheaper... and I can tell. I installed one and it buzzed like crazy. Ordered a second one... also buzzed like crazy. It's the plastic cover on the back. Totally pointless. Pry the cover off to fix the buzzing. Then you have a non-buzzing, crappy subwoofer.

I am little disappointed with the quality. It didn't produce bass with my Hifonics 500 watt amp and popped hard(not a bass hard) with my Kicker 300 watt amp. I eventually put the speakers in a real small box with an Old School Fultron ME50 amp and achieved mid bass at medium levels. It is what it is for the price. They will produce bass, just not clean, responsive, as a sub should to maintain a companies reputation.
