Purchased this sub about 6 months ago and installed it in a ported box and it sounded great until the cone came unglued and now I am having to have it repaired. I am hoping after the repairs are complete it will sound as good as it did the first 6 months and that it will last a lot longer this time.

Alpine say's that this sub will run 1000 watts. Don't be fooled I Bought one and blew and 3 months after the break in period I blew a voice coil. I had it hooked up to a JL Audio 1000/1 V2 slash series amp. The sub is worth the money if you're not gonna run 1000 watts to it but if you are you might want to go with the type x.

The subs showed up on time and in new condition. Hooked them up and put them in a prefab box and could only do 130db berore clipping...the subs will not take 1000 watts rms...I'd say 600..taking them out and putting in 2 sundown x 12s

July 1, 2014 Nice Sub

I have a single 12 dual 4 ohms pulling 2 ohms from a Alpine M110. It sounds nice but the amp is just a little to powerful for it, I have to keep all the levels down in order not to damage the speaker. I'm thinking about changing up and maybe getting two subs just to be able to get the most power out of everything.

These are great subs for the price, but dont beat them to true 1000 rms playing dub step or hip hop. 30v at 1 ohm with 50hz tone and this soon will blow easily! After first one failed, then the replacement failed, i own a hippo 122 and now unleash my amp at 39v 1 ohm load and am afraid of my car falling apart! If you have over 1000 rms amp just get 1 hippo 122 you will make your friends jealous when they see it's only one 12 in the trunk! Thanks sonic for the great prices and selection!
