Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Mobile Monitor (Polk Audio)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
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.
700 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.
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).
28 - 200 Hz
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
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.
25 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.
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.
Polymer/Mica Composite
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.
Butyl 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.
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.

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.
0.66 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.
0.66 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.
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.

great bang for the buck

November 22, 2011

I love polk audio so when i decide to add some bass to my car i wasn't sure if going with the db or the MM series. i got the MM1040DVC pairing them with a PA400.1 on mono and a little cap. Great decision it sounds great more than what i expected. Due to the fact that i still want to use my trunk i just got a single 10". If you want the whole neighborhood to hear you don't get them, but if you want to enjoy your sound on your car they are the best quality construction and great care on details. Strongly recommended.

Great subwoofer!

September 24, 2013

This sub has some pretty good bass!. Even though its not considered a shallow mount, its compact design will allow to be mounted in most shallow boxes. Dual voice coil allows for different wiring setups. I use this in an 04 Denali paired to an Alpine amp and I get so much more bass than the stock setup.

Excelent sub

September 17, 2013

This is the third sub I have placed into my 2005 Nissan 350Z roadster, and for once I am impressed. I build a custom .75 cu ft box to fit in the factory location, and powered it with a Rockford Fosgate BRT 500 watt amp, pushing roughly 350 watts at two ohms. Overall, the bass is deep, and the tightness of the hits is there. It gets plenty loud, enough to where you feel it in your throat. In my car since July, I have had no issues, but I will warn to ensure clearance for the cone, as the excursion is long.

This is a 10 on the scale of 8

September 16, 2013

this thing thumps (pressure isn't there but the bass is awesome and SQ i from beyond) whether is hip hop on the radio or heavy rock (obituary sounds good as HELL) this thing DELIVERS you dig that? excursion is not the 1" they advertise (not without over-driving this little monster) but with no over excursion (you will know when that is) the cone can easily go 7/8" and that displaces Helluva lot of air. did i mentioned Sound Quality --------------- play some symphony - great play rap - even better rock / heavy metal - just right (Nickleback sounds wonderful) jazz is unbelievable the more you throw at it the more it ask's for! At about (solid) 475 you will notice slight over excursion go higher and it will scare you but anything under 460 you can put your ear right to it and you will not hear anything that is not supposed to be there! iv'e seen drivers with 3 times the motor sound half as good owned PA SR-102 and this thing does not separate from the SR at all as a matter of fact the SR series had that annoying tinsel slap above a certain level --- vs this one does NOT i'm tired of writing get it already

A Year Later....Update

March 11, 2013

Ok so I have been using this subwoofer for an entire year. This thing is still sounding fantastic. I have really put this little 10" through the ringer, and it still sounds perfect. This is a very musical, accurate sub. And it will belt out REALLY low notes as well. You will need two of them for the neighbor's to hear you, but musically, one 10 will be more than enough. I listen to everything, and bass guitar's sound just as good as some 25hz bass from your favorite bass CD. I do have it in a slightly larger sealed box than recommended (about .9 cubic feet), but it sounds extremely good in this volume. Highly recommend a sealed box with .9 cubic feet. I am powering it with a P300-1 (also purchased from Sonic E.) and it could take even more power with ease. Everything I have bought from Sonic Electronix's over the last two years is still going strong FYI. Nothing has broke. Zero issues.

Excellent sounding relatively low mounting depth large xmax sub

August 6, 2012

This sub has a large xmax for such a low mounting depth, as required in my situation. The basket is plastic, but robust. The spyder is very large on the 12" speaker, for good cone control. Like it very much!

Was a good deal.

March 27, 2012

This is a decent woofer, lots of X-max. Produces deep bass for their size. I have mine in a sealed box at .9 cubic feet. I have always been a ported box guy so I plan on porting this box in the near future. I am pushing a single 10 with a Mono Rockford Fosgate P300-1. The birthsheet stated 416 watts at 2 ohms mono. The woofer handles the power very well. This was a smokin hot deal.
