Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Single
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
330 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
330 watts
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
1200 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements.
1200 watts
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polypropylene
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
88 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
35 - 2500 Hz
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Hatchback Style, Angled Back
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
12-1/4"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
17-5/8"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
7-7/16"
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
5-3/4"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
3/4"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Spring posts
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.
Vinyl

Great deal!

October 26, 2012

I purchased this sub for my pickup and it fits under the jump seats with 1/2 inch to spare. I wanted to get a little more bass out of my system and take some of the load off of the 6x8's in the doors. I have an Alpine head unit along with an Alpine MRP-M500 mono amplifier driving this sub and it has been giving me great performance for almost two years now. It is not a competition grade sub but it fits my needs perfectly and the price was very inexpensive for the performance and ease of use. I would buy this again.

I love this sub. If you want to blow your car windows look for something else; if you want to add a powerful bass to your car sound and are limited in space, this is the one for you. You cannot beat the performance for this price.

This was my first sub from sony, and overall I am impressed. It hits really cleanly but doesnt hit the lows as well as it does the highs. Only problem, eventually wasn't loud enough....... But overall very clean sound, and looks nice too. I would have definitely bought a second one had I not come across some 12"s

March 7, 2011

Great sound and very nice small box. Absolutely love it but it has one slight problem. It seams when it gets very cold out the sub sometimes does not work. to get it working you have to tap on the cone and it works for a while. Not sure whats wrong but a little disappointed.

For a 10, it hits great and very clean. The biggest reason I purchased this unit was because it fits securely and perfectly under the bench seat in my 98 F150 Extended cab. Very happy with it. Would definitely recommend it.

Great subwoofer for small places.

January 27, 2011

I installed this subwoofer in a Dodge Dakota quad cab. The sub fit behind the back folding seat. The sound is great perfect for the inside of the cabin. It's not a ground shaker but definitely improved the sound which was lacking major Bass in m vehicle. I matched it to a 600 Wat Sony Amp, all controlled by a Pioneer Head unit. I've had it for about 7 month now I love it.

Good value for money and if you have limited space. I wish they used the same die cast woofer available when you purchase it out of the box.....instead of the somewhat flimsey steel stamped design in these. you drop the cabinet it bends under the magnet weight and you have to re-allign the magnet. This happened in shipping of my previous one of these. if it would have been die-cast it wouldn't have happened. so that is why i gave a less rating on durability.

November 19, 2010

This enclosure is nice and small, but it is not for people who like a lot of bass. Its not as powerful as Sony said it was. It doesnt hit all of the lows. if you want to add a little bass to your truck or car, you should get it. but if you want to feel or hear bass I don't recommend it. The speaker should say 330 on the front don't know why it say 1200. its no where close 2 handle that much power

Great bass! was exactly what I was looking for and more!

October 19, 2010

I have this subwoofer inside my 1986 RX7 and its a small car. This is hooked up to a very wimpy amp that has only 200watts max and 50RMS but I love it. It produces nice clear bass that pumps pretty darn good. Im comparing this to a vented kicker 10in and it doesnt Punch as hard but it definitely has great quality. I should be able to get better results with a better amp. Its gets loud, not teeth clattering, but loud enough to slightly shake my rear view mirror on about half gain, half volume, and flat EQ. Hope this helps I'm planing on getting another real soon and hooking it up to a far stronger amp.

Installed this in a 05 super crew ford. It fits perfect with no mods. I am running a sony xplode head unit with a 200 watt amp. The sound is very crisp with good definition and decent bass. I listen mostly rock and some rap . The lows are not to boomy, but they hit hard enough to feel. If you are looking for earth rattling bass then buy something else, but if you want to add some kick without going over board this sub is a great buy and at the price you cant beat it . I would recomend it.
