Good sub, bad soft parts!

This sub has a very nice basket and motor, but the soft parts on it are just a joke! But this sub rebuilt is great! These subs produce great sound and very low bass! I love it

VS
HARD HITTING SUBS

Ive recently bought a set of HK12x2 and found that the air space is wrong by the manufacturers specs we built box 3 cubic feet per chamber as per specs. the subs sounded very good on low notes high notes build s no pressure so we built a 2.2 cubic feet box and powered them and low notes intense and high end moves my windshield 3/8 of an inch impressive. it is also our findings the 3000 watt rating is a safe rating we are putting 4000 watts a sub and they hit like a mac truck and do not heat up and woofers do not sound fatigued or distorted. very loud 156.3 to be exact

I'm powering this beast with a Fusion NV-AM25001 mono amp at 1 ohm 1790 rms, with a ported box with 3.0 cubic feet like what the manufacture said. and let me you tell this sub slaps like a mofo. Just this one sub does a lot of damage and shakes my truck like no tomorrow. I really recommend this subwoofer to everyone.

This beast can slap like a mofo. It is 41 pounds haha. The magnet is really big. It looks very clean, and I just love this sub. Great buy for the price. I would recondmend this sub to anyone that wants big bass with small budget. Or even just buy it.

This has to be the biggest, most expensive paper weight i have ever gotten. i purchased this sub, and within a week it was rattling like crazy. Thought maybe i had a defective sub so i returned it and within the first day, (in mind only putting little amounts of power at 1ohm) the sub was bottoming out like crazy, at certain Hz. Terrible, terrible, terrible sub. I've bought $50 Kicker subs that are 150W RMS that hit harder than this piece of dung.

Save your money and buy anything else but this sub. Worst thing ive ever had.

I love this sub. I'm not kidding you, only meeting about half the RMS at 1 ohm, people have honestly said it sounds like something is trying to break out of my trunk. Needs a big box, the person I bought this from built his box, and it's pretty big. Big box, big sub, big sound. Durability is 3 because I haven't had it for a while. I can't speak about it knowledgeably.

I just got two of these monsters a couple days ago, and hooked them up with my HiFonics Brutus 1200 RMS amp. So far I love these subs, great speakers at a decent price. I highly recomend these subs if you want good sound, and to be heard coming for blocks!!!!

These subs use a great basket and motor, and even the cone composite cone is really nice, but why they skimped on the spiders is beyond me. After two years on 1500W daily, both spiders on both of my subs gave up and ripped all the way around right at the former. They are notorious for this, especially in the north where cold weather speeds up the deterioration. I had mine rebuilt by faultline customs with mirror progressive spiders and now they are truly amazing subs. I don't know what MA was thinking when they used the spiders they did, they should've used the 10" spiders that basket was meant for. Or at least less brittle spiders. Buy cheap and have rebuilt, and you can own a really serious woofer.

For the price, these speakers cant be beat. They put out alot of sound but do require a large box if you go ported and some heavy duty construction. They wont fit in any off-the-shelf boxes, but then you wouldnt want them to =) I'd put these up against fosgate stage 3s any day.

This sub is awesome. my friend just bought this and a MA audio 2000 watt mono. He used to have 2 JL' W3V2's and his trunk rattled a ton even with dynamat. Now wiht this sub i dont think hes going to have a trunk with all the bass coming out of it. i can hear coming towards my house from the end of the street and thats a good half mile. AWESOME SUB FOR THE MONEY!! GREAT BUY!

This sub hits very hard! Its reliable and ive had no problems with it after owning it for 5 months. I hit 144.3 dB's pushing approx. 1200 watts rms in a ported box in a car. Well worth the money.
