Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
VEGA (Cerwin-Vega)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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.
400 watts
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.
200 watts
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.
4 ohms
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".
85 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.
6.5 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.
Black
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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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
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.
No

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.

Bandpass
Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.7 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.

Cerwin Vega Mobile 10 Inch Woofer

October 8, 2013

I had this sub installed into my Vw Polo 6. I used a JVC Amplifier on bridge mode 120 rms to power this 200 rms sub, it sounded ok. I recently installed a starsound amplifier on bridge mode which equates to 350 rms at 6 ohms. These woofers now sound incredible and play like a 12 inch woofer. The bass gets deeper as you turn up the volume. There is no distortion, just deeper bass as you turn up the volume. I would strongly recommend this product. Get the right Amplifier and get a sealed box. You will not be disappointed. These subs can handle a powerful amplifier. I have my amplifier turned full and this sub plays strong.

Great Product

June 10, 2010

I had previously ordered the Cerwin Vega 10" Subs and fully Enjoy them. I had their predecessors and realy enjoyed them so decided to give Cerwin-Vega another shot, and couldn't be happier. I have two of theses 10's in a downward sealed box in my extra cab Silverado. Even though they are under the backseat in a custom box, they put out some serious SPL. These 10's are wired straight out from a 4 channel amp bridged amp. 2 channels are bridged together putting out probably 300 watts on channels 1+2(bridged), and channel 3+4(bridged). Sound GREAT

Update to its good

May 23, 2009

I just finished building a bandpass for ONE of these subwoofers. Its big.... The ported section is 1.2 cubic feet with a slot port about 2 inches wide by 10 inches tall by 11 inches long. The sealed section is exactly 1 cubic foot and is stuffed heavily with fill. This is where the magnet is. I know its somewhat backward, you are supposed to install the speaker so that its magnet is in the ported section for proper voice coil cooling, but I don't care. I am pushing this subwoofer with a US Amp 800.2 in stereo mode, the left channel pushing one voice coil and the right channel pushing the other. Kicker power and ground wires. These amplifiers are highly underrated, so the sub is receiving at least 100 watts RMS to each coil, but oh well. Gain 1/3 the way up, bass boost 1/3 way up (centered at 40Hz). I went from two of these, each in 1.1 cubic feet sealed enclosures to just this one and - it - is - so - awesome... I honestly cannot believe my ears. Its louder than when I had two in the sealed box.... JUST ONE IS deeper, much much deeper and louder. I am truly astonished. Also, the really low bass is very, very pronounced. Before, i could barely get the lift gate to my jeep cherokee to rattle, I had to push them hard. Now, everything rattles, the roof rack, doors, windows, i just can't get over this setup. I'm now building an identical box for the other. This speaker is made for a bandpass with these or similar specs. All the other enclosures are nothing but compromises. Expect for midbass(I don't want that at all) this one hits every note and boy is it loud for being only 200 watts! Get two for a bandpass, give them about 200 watts RMS to each, and you'll be really happy! Hope this was helpful!

its good.

May 19, 2009

I have had this subwoofer in three different enclosure, manufacturer specs for sealed enclosure (.7cubic feet), for ported (1 cubic feet) and my own sealed(1.1 cubic foot) and mine sounds the best. The 1 cubic foot ported is loudest in its tuned frequency, but everything else is poor. Everything out of that set up sounds horrible. The.7cubic foot small sealed sounds pretty good but doesn't go low at all. BUT, my 1.1 sealed box gets loud, not as loud as the ported though. Mine goes lower than everything else and sounds the cleanest, but with about 1/3 less power handling. 150 watts rms in my box will push one to its limits without distortion. The .7 cubic foot one is a bit louder than mine, but its a trade off. I like the bass to go lower and i am willing to trade off a little spl to do so. I recommend this speaker cause its a DVC that can come with each coil in 2 ohms or 4 so it allows you to do more with it. Looks great in my opinion! I oprefer this one over kickers entry level subs, including the 12 incher. Yes, I prefer this ten over kickers entry level 12. 50 more watts RMS and its looks awesome

I recommend this because they do get loud in the right enclosure, with enough power. I'm feeding each voice coil about 75 watts RMS and it sound nice. Pro: handles descent power, wiring possibilities with an additional CV DVC, can perform well in small enclosures and sound clean and deep in larger ones. And it looks cool! Summary: Get at least two and feed them a true 450~500 watts RMS in a medium sealed enclosure and you'll love them
