Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
1100 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.
2000 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
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 - 500 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".
97 dB
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.
Aluminum
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.

Big boom

June 30, 2012

I have 2 of these subs on a power acoustik gothic series 2200 watt 2channel amp bridged and these things slam hard they use a lot of power so I word recommend the big 3 if you haven't already they use lots of power I've read reviews of the emblem in the middle getting loose/falling off but I've had mine for a while now bad no signs of that happening plus they need to be ported the only subs that I've had that comes close are the mofos and I've had l7s and they don't even compete but these subs need to be broke in properly and it takes some time but I would recommend these to anyone.

I have one of these subs in a Supercrew F-150, and it hits pretty hard with only 600 watts ran to it, my box is nearly 2cu ft slot-ported. Excellent sub for a ported box, but sounds like crap in a sealed box. i plan to buy two more of these in the near future.

Great Sub!

June 9, 2006

I currently own one of these subs and its in the trunk of my crown vic. This sub hits harder than any of my friends systems that have 2 12's or 15's. Not to mention that the flames on the backside are awsome to look at. It is definately worth the money to get atleast one of these if not two, you will not be disappointed!

Ridiculouslly LOUD!!

February 20, 2006

I own two of these with one legacy 2060 amp going to EACH one! 0 gauge wiring kit, 5 farad cap, one yellow top battery just for my system, and a 120 amp altenator. They are in a 4 door 2001 VW GLX Jetta VR6! I also have the audiobahn recommended ported box from this site, and it beats the living HELL out of me! My Rear view mirror fell off the first time I cranked it up! It was kinda imbarrasing seeing how I was trying to impress some chicks. I keep these things at low volume, until someone pulls up beating at a stop light, then I crank it up, drown em' out, rattle his entire car and my rear view mirror falls off again! Well worth the money! My system is louder than my boyz and he's pushing three Solo Baric L7's with one amp on each sub with the same amps I got! If you want to sound like you got a system this is not the sub for you, BUT if you want to sound like you got a gorilla trying to get out your trunk, than the monkeying around stops here!

Great Sub, Great Price

February 20, 2006

I just bought this subwoofers about 2 weeks ago off of Sonic Electronix. After about a week of breaking them in, I finally turned them up and WOW!!! These subs hit hard!!!! I have them hooked up in a huge ported box to a Power Accoustik 2 channel amp (bridged, 1400 watts rms). I am thinking about getting another amp soon and I'm trying to decide what to get...either an Audiobahn HCT1500 or the maybe the 2300. Any suggestions??

Get 2 of this with dual ported box will knock ur head out

January 23, 2006

I own one of this and hooked it up to XP1500D and its already drawing attention when I pull into the school parking lot, imagine it with 2 of these in a ported. I have 1 of this with a ported box. Got a good deal for $170. But you do need a CAP though or else your light will dim when everything is hooked up. Recommended setting: 1)Boss 4000watt pwr drive 2) AW1206T 12" 1) 0 Gauge complete kit 1) 5fard cap, legacy or pwr acoustic is fine 1) Dual ported enclosure all these cost about 600 and add 40-80 dollars installation fee or you can hook it up then you can beat the ppl out of their car at the stop light
