The Golden Standard for Subwoofers

Are you tired of the same ol' traditional subwoofer? Are you sick of the standard "high roll rubber surround" and the popular polypropylene cone? Are you itching to spend a lot of money on something that might work better than the subwoofer you have now? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are ready for the new standard of subwoofers... the Golden Standard!





Sounds so good, it is like gold is flowing through my ears.

- Dr. K. Midas from Phrygia Labs




100% Pure Audio

This limited edition VSW subwoofer is made from solid gold and produces bass so deep, so clear, and so accurate that some experts are wondering why we have never done this before. In fact, Dr. K. Midas from Phrygia Labs in Greece stated that the subwoofer "sounds so good, it is like gold is flowing through my ears" and that it was "the most beautiful subwoofer I've ever touched". The secret to the golden sound that this limited edition sub produces is in its attention to detail. The 24k gold, spring loaded terminals are so conductive that there is literally no loss in signal transfer. This lossless signal transfer continues through the golden tinsel leads and into the 3" gold voice coil that produces incredible sound. In fact, some experts claim that the golden voice coil is so advanced that it actually IMPROVES the audio signal sent from the amp. One audio fan reported, "my wife loves listening to Yanni, but I hate it. Once I installed the gold edition VSW subwoofer in our car, whenever she tries to play Yanni, the VSW Gold sub improves the audio signal to sound a lot like Led Zeppelin!" If you're worried about the price tag, this woofer has your back. Once it hits 88dB the solid gold VSW will send you back in time (we're sure you wouldn't do anything irresponsible like buy all the Apple AND Microsoft stock you can afford).

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
VS-Series (NVX)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
1.21 Jigawatts
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.
Dual
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.
2.3 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
3"
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).
20 - 196.967 gHz
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".
1337.33 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
20 mm
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.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Gold
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.
Woven Fiber Pressed Paper Cone
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.
Foam
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Triple Stacked
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
No
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
LOL

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.85 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.85 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
7.02"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
10.83"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
26 Hz

NVX-VSW Solid Gold madness

April 22, 2016

Well, the wife gave the ok to sell the house and move in with my parents..again.. So I got this thing and dang is it a beast! First off, its heavy as can be, the ups guy got a hernia bringing it up to the trailer, umm, mobile home door. Built a 2.0 cube box out of military grade aluminum that i got off my neighbors new F150, but thats another story...i lined the inside of the box with unicorn hair just to break up the back wave a little bit. Seems to work because I blew out all the windows of my Miata and also the rear suspension. Runnin it off of 4 old school Macintosh 1000 watt amps, 2 per voice coil, of course. Highly recommend this to anyone who believes in the tooth fairy, Santa Clause and free college for everyone.

April 1, 2016

I bought 8 of these and hooked them up to my local Electric lines in a small sealed box and they just pounded. There worth every dollar. I figure once I blow one up I'll ware it around my neck for some bling. I should buy 8 more today but my trust fund is getting low.

I purchased two of these for my motorcycle. I'm driving them with 16 amps putting out over 3 Jigawatts which is higher than their 1.21 Jigawatt rating each. Still, they handle the power with ease. I highly recommend these 12" subwoofers. They put out full range sound.

All Gold Everything

April 1, 2016

I hooked this up to my friends HUGE amp in a sealed box tuned to an F3 of 67hz (we measured it). Not even CLOSE to its rated jigawatt power but It did 137.6db on the dash with NO SWEAT, amp not even hot after 2 burps. My girlfriend hears me before I even pull in the driveway. This speaker out does the rest because of the gold Voice coil, so it moves better than the OVER SURROUND subwoofers.

Should be amazing, but....

April 1, 2016

I just bought this sub and can't wait to put it in the back of my Pinto. My only complaint up front is that the enclosure options are made of wood and carpet which will totally degrade the SQ of this sub. For that reason, I'm going with 4 stars instead of 5. A solid gold or even platinum enclosure would really make this sub sing.

Worth its weight in GOLD!

April 1, 2016

My previous system had a real "tinny" sound to it. I switched over to the solid gold edition VSW and guess what... it disappeared! These subs deliver sold bass.... like a karat-e kick to the arse!

And talk about AESTHETICS! They are so beautiful its like they should be behind a jewelry counter.

NVX wins again, another gold medal design!

Seriously guys, you had me at Jigawatt...

This woofer slams

April 1, 2016

I purchased two of these to go in my 2016 Tesla and let me tell you that these babies slam and there is nothing like them. These things hit harder than my minivan that has 42 10's... Alma Gates did not have shit on my van, blew her dang doors off. I had Richard Clark , David Navone and Scott Buwalda tune them in the Tesla and that was part of why they hit so hard.

AMAZING Sub, Best Performance:Price ratio

April 1, 2016

I have had this sub for a whole day now and it not only pounds hard, it sent out devastating shockwaves in my 20mi radius and that too, on just 1 W power. I can't imagine what it would do at full power.
