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.
12"
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
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.
400 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.
800 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.
Kevlar Reinforced Semi-Pressed 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.
Poly-Ether-Ester
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".
86 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).
43 - 250 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.
Square/Rectangle
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
13.5"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
27.37"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
3.25"
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.
5.25"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
1/2"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
2
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.

Awesome for a shallow mount

May 22, 2009

I needed the space in my Sentra's trunk so a shallwo mount was probably the only way to go outside of a custom box fitting. I was worried this wouldn't have much kick to it, but it hits pretty hard for such a small thing. I'm only putting 300RMS into it from an alpine amp and it rattles the overhead glasses holder to the point where I need to turn the bass down. Doesn't provide the big deep bass some of the larger subs will produce but it definitly holds its own.

P3L-S12

January 13, 2011

Great product. Very good sound quality. however, it is not extremely loud due to the fact that the enclosure is so small. This was the only enclosure that would fit in my single cab silverado. It is worth the money though. especially if you are starved for room.

Had this sub for about a year now in my 2006 chevy silverado crew cab. got an mtx rfl powering it at 430 rms. pumps the poop out of my cab, sounds crisp and clear. Doesnt quite hit the super low notes like you'll hear on a yelawolf track, but thats expected from a shallow sub. dont hesitate, for the price ull never find another sealed angled sub prebuilt into a solid box.

Solid Hard Hitting Sub

June 13, 2011

I ordered this sub and coupled it with a "Rockford Fosgate Prime R500-1 500 Watt Mono Amplifier" to install in my sons regular cab Chevy Silverado. The sound is great. The fit was perfect for his truck, even with the seat all the way back. This is a GREAT sub and enclosure, especially for the size.

Not what i was expecting

April 14, 2011

Hooked it up to a 1000 watt Kenwood amp and it wasn't what I was looking for. For a $200 Fosgate I expected some BOOM but it just doesn't deliver. My friends 10" Pyramid hits harder. If you want to bump I don't recommend it.

Undescribable...

March 9, 2011

This is the best sounding sub I have hear. I have a 1999 F250 ext cab. It fits under the back seat (recommend the P12G), it sounds awesome. It hits with a 160w amp, I would highly recommend this to anyone with limited space. I researched for 2mo and bought this one, the quality is so clean. Definitely will rattle the windows and doors.
=This 12" sub is an addition to my fosgate 6x8 (all four doors) and a kenwood 545HD radio HU.-it makes my ext. cab bump....do be affraid to by this sub

Awesome sub!!!

March 6, 2012

I bought this sub because I needed a shallow mount sub for my truck and I had heard my friends P3L. Upon receiving the sub in the mail and installing it in my truck I was very pleased with how great it sounded. This sub keeps up with my buddies alpine type R and is actually significantly faster than the type R.

Installed box in 2003 Corvette with Kenwood 1000 watt amp and just stock head unit with boston acoustics in doors and rear. System rocks-hard!!! Would highly recommend this setup for coupes wanting to retain ability to remove top and still close trunk. Everything fits perfect.

Fit nicely in a Crewcab Silverado

June 11, 2009

I bought this 12 for my silverado crewcab, threw it behind the backseat (with some very minor trimming). Ive only had it two days and I was told that it needs to be broken-in but its already bangin. Its being pushed by an alpine mrp500 with a 1farad cap. Im waiting a couple of days to really tune up the amp so I can break-in this sub but it hits very nicely and is very compact so everything is completely hidden.
