Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
GTO (JBL)
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.
1400 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.
350 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.
2"
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).
23 - 400 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".
93 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.
14.50 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
Silver
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.
Polypropylene
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.

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.
1.0 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.
1.0 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.
1.75 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.
1.75 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.
6-5/16"
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.
11"
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.
28.30 Hz
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.
66.00 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.
0.49
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.
0.51
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.
1.89 ohms
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.
11.14
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.

Solid, powerful low end from JBL

February 20, 2009

I actually have two of the 8-ohm units run in parallel to a 4-ohm plate amp in my home entertainment center. The units do not benefit from the acoustics of an automobile; they have to fill my 435 square foot living room with bass from movie soundtracks and do a fantastic job of it!
PROS: They look great, they sound great, build quality is very, very nice and solid
CONS: none that I found

I would definitely buy these again!

Not Bad for the Price

January 22, 2015

Powering one of these in a 1 cu. ft. sealed box at a 2-ohm final load to a PPI ION 5-channel theoretically providing 350 watts. While there is a clear difference in SQ compared to the very high-end subs in my other vehicle, this sub is a good performer (especially when factoring in price). I find them to be smooth, fast-acting overall, and it will get loud off of just "350 watts" (or whatever the little PPI ION realistically produces. At least in my box and vehicle with my amp, it doesn't get as low as I'd expect a 12" sub to go but everywhere else it's pretty flat and natural sounding. As for build/finishing quality, this is where I am not impressed. Properly built subwoofers will have a screw hole that is perfectly directly under the center of the dust cap when the logo is level. In my case, when the logo is level, the lowest screw is slightly to the right. In addition, the ribs on the cone also do not make sense. It is as if this wasn't assembled with alignment in mind. This is something I notice but nobody else will notice, I'm sure. I really don't get the continuing use of dual voice coils in car audio when a single voice coil can achieve the same thing, but the speaker wire terminals were of the banana plug screw down variety

Excellent subwoofer for the money. Great sound quality.

April 24, 2015

I had been using a pair of really awesome old school Orion XTR 12's from 1999 before purchasing these. I sold my 97 Crown Victoria with the Orion's, and the rest of the stereo system, in it. I started new with a 2005 Crown Victoria.
I read reviews and specs for these JBL GTO1214D's and purchased them here. They perform as well or better than advertised. The sound quality is awesome and they have plenty of punch. They easily sound as good as the Orion's I had with about the same amount of power (approx. 700-800W each) . Sensitivity is 93 db on these JBL's, so they sound good even at lower volumes - you don't have to crank the volume to hear the bass.
FYI they are in a sealed enclosure with 1.25 cu. ft. per side. I also split a bag of polyester fiberfill into both sides of the enclosure. For those who don't know, adding the polyester fiberfill inside the box slows the sound waves down and, from my experience, extends the bass notes and smooths out the sound. It made a night-and-day difference with the Orions I had, so I automatically put the fiberfill in with these.
I definitely recommend these subwoofers to anyone unless you're needing monster SPL for sound competitions. If you put several of these together, they might be good for that, too.

Let me cut to the chase here! These subs are the bomb! All of JBLs products are wickedley underrated! The old saying is "You get what you pay for" this is not the case at all here!! You get wayyyy more than what you pay for! I have two of these hooked up on a Kenwood Kac-9106d ( 1000 watts rms) at damn near full power! That's almost 500 w rms a piecmye! They're onlyrated at 350 w rms a piece I'm pretty sure you can do themath! Jus sayin this product is well worth the bread!!! You couldn't go wrong at allll!!! Very happy with the product! I will now shop at sonic anytime I need anything for my vehicle

Excellent sub for the money. It is well built. Not quite as potent as my Alpine Type R, but that was expected, and this is much cheaper than that subwoofer. It has good sound quality. Currectly running in a ported box at 34hz, but I think it would sound better sealed in my setup. Seems to be a bit power hungry. Good addition to any system, but don't expect to shake the block with only one.

Bought one of these to replace 2 Kicker Comp10s that I've had for 4-5 yrs. I have it hooked up to 300w (Kicker ZX300.1) and this one pounds louder and sounds much smoother and much better overall than the Kickers did together. I absolutely love this subwoofer. What makes it better is I got this on a great deal (20% off $79). I cannot comment on durability as I haven't had it long. I would for sure recommend this subwoofer and Sonic Electronix.

Over the last 7 years ive owned over 30 different brands, sizes and models of woofers. For 100 bucks this woofer will sound better, thump deeper and last longer then most within price range. @ 350 watts rms you can easily power two and quake the dead, If your looking for good juicy full thick lows, Heres your woofer

Huge fan of the GTO series. Have never purchased the subs, but the car speakers have GREAT sound. Especially the lows. Currently have two GT5s hooked up to a kicker amp. Bass level is solid but it can't handle the RMS. This gives me almost a 50% increase in RMS without losing any volume. And after reading the stats and reviews about how this is ranked the 3rd best subwoofer, I made my decision after that. For the current pricing this is literally a steal. I had to grab a few.

I already own 4 of these subs and love them. Unstoppable!
Sharon L on May 20, 2015
The reviews are good and the price were right. Upgrading from some Hifonics HFX12D4s. The GTOs are the exact size for my custom box, so hopefully they'll sound optimal. Will review again once I receive and install them.

Does anyone know if i can mount two of these in my Toyota Tundra Crew Max 2011 behind the back seats? Thanks.
Zach R on Mar 5, 2015
Best Answer: Find a pre-fab box that is supposed to fit back there. Look at its mounting depth. Look at this speaker's mounting depth. Is the speaker mounting depth less than the box's mounting depth? Then yes. If not, no.

Generally you need flat subs to go behind truck seats.

Best Answer: Hello,

I'm using a Pioneer GM-D8601. I have two of these sub's wired down to 1 Ohm. The Pioneer makes 800 Watts RMS at 1 Ohm which is plenty enough to power these sub's without cooking the amp. Amp is very simple and easy to use and wire as well. There is better out there but you could find a used one for about $100

What is the best amp, and could this be installed in a trucks cab some how??? Chevy Avalanche
Picture Perfect on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: I paired one of these subs with M-1350 Sound Ordnance amp from Crutchfield. The RMS wattage matches up perfectly (assuming you're creating the proper impedance load at 2 ohms) and can't beat the price. Unfortunately sonic didn't have anything comparable. But loved the price of this sub on Sonic. As far as truck installs go, they make shallow boxes designed just for trucks, with the subs firing upwards. Just look on this website, I think they have a tab with truck boxes. Make sure you find a box with a volume as close to the 1.75' that's recommended.

The A3011 is only enough power to properly drive ONE GTO1214D.

will the JBL GTO1214D work with a 2 channel 4000 watt lazar well?

Best Answer: Hello,

It is impossible to answer your question accurately. You've only provided us a description of the amplifier, which doesn't help us determine the figures needed to conclude a match. However, being that the amp is a 2-Channel - already not ideal for subwoofers - you likely plan to BRIDGE the channels, which will obligate the system to a 4ohm final load. This makes the match NOT compatible because the GTO1214D is a DUAL-4ohm driver, which means it will wired down to 2ohms or up to 8ohms, ONLY . The JBL GTO1214 will be the only possible match. However, again, you didn't provide a proper model numbers, so we cannot say it is a match anyway.
