Natural, Clean Bass from the Aubiobahn AW1051T

Getting rich, natural bass from a subwoofer can be a difficult task. Audiobahn has made this task a little easier with the introduction of the Audiobahn AW1051T car subwoofer. In order to get the natural sound that people want, Audiobahn chose to use a non-pressed paper cone. The paper cone creates a detailed and natural sound that other cone materials can not create. The foam surround allows for plenty of movement of the motor assembly, which can result in deeper bass. The dual 4 ohm terminals give plenty of wiring options for the installer and a variety of impedances for the amplifier. For those looking for a great sounding and detailed subwoofer, the Audiobahn AW1051T is a excellent choice.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Natural Sound (Audiobahn)
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.
600 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.
300 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
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).
28 - 1000 Hz
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".
91 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.
13 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.
Reinforced Paper
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.
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.

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.
.75 cubic feet
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.
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.
2.00 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.65 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.
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2.4 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.
4-5/8"
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.
9"
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.
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

Great

April 18, 2006

I have hooked up probley around 20-30 systems in the last year. I have always liked Audiobahn for their cheap but good products. These are GREAT. I got 2 of them in a average size dual 10 box. A Audiobahn AT800 Watt amp and have each sub wired down to 2 ohms each. That amp is in 2 channel mode and i am running around 400 watts to each sub. I have the level at about 60% on the amp. These completely blew away my expectations. Great subs, and for the price they are rediculous. Not a bad buy at all.

impressed...

October 21, 2012

I got two of these speakers new. Great deal. I got two with a sealed box i made for my regular cab 2000 gmc sierra 5.3 and they hit hard being pushed by a 1800 watt SPL Gorilla Series Amp running both in series at 2 ohms. I recently changed my 4x6 and 6.5" speakers to the DB series Polk Audio. Just recently bought two 12" polk audio subs and may install soon. Honestly tried to just blow the Audiobahns up but they been holding strong and show no signs of weakness.

great sub for the buck

March 7, 2012

Have just recently bought my second one, the first one i had for many years and after one of the coils finaly went I immediately looked to see if that model was still being made (had first one for about 7 years). I am no longer into the big beating bass sounds of rap music but this sub can handle it, and well. This is a great sub for the cost and have recommended it to friends and audio enthusiasts!

March 6, 2012

Audiobahn succeeded on this model. If you want bang for your buck look no further. Wish I'd bought four instead of just two. Only down side is you need to know what your doing when wiring these dual 4 ohm subs or you'll set the protection on your amp off. READ the manual.

These things are SICK!!!! For what these cost, I wasn't expecting much. I just wanted to get something that would fill in the back of my Tahoe. These fill the whole thing. Running a sealed box about .88 cubic feet per chamber @ 2 ohm on a 2 channel 900 watt RMS amp. I do have the amp choked back a little. I'm glad I got them when I did, because now they're on back order. Since I haven't had these for very long I didn't feel I could go a full five stars all the way across.

i absolutely love these subwoofers

February 23, 2012

For the price of these subs you cant go wrong. I have mine wired down to 0.5 ohms with a 1000watt mono 1 channel amp of course turned down to about half way but these things pound in my 1997 toyota avalon, and if you have ever owned one of the cars you know how hard it is to get the sound throughout, I would buy again, thanks sonic for your great producs and audiobahn.

January 11, 2012

Can't say enough about Audiobahn subs, low price great power handling, great sound, worth every penny. I highly recommend these to anyone wanting a powerful low cost setup, they match well with the SSL 2.1600 amp which is another great low cost option, and with free shipping from Sonic Electronix you can't find a sub amp combo like this for that low of a price.

August 27, 2011

I'm sorry had to do another review to tell the world once again, dont sleep on these woofers. I brought 6 more couldn't help myself. i have a1500 watt audiopipe on them. Stock alternator( for now) a power cell in the back and a subwoofer crossover in back. these woofer sound better than before. im think about run 12 all together. Havent made my mind up. If for any reason anybody reading this review and think these are cheap woofer, you are right! but they sound dam good check them for yourself. In the mean while keep the bass coming. SONIC ELECTRONIX IS #1!
