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.
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.
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.
Single
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).
24 - 200 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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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.
4-1/2"
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.
9-1/16"
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.

great sub!

December 24, 2012

Bought the sub after having owned two sets of the mm series 6.5 components for a year and being more than pleased with their performance. I was looking for a 90 plus efficiency sub with small enclosure needs to maximize my space and power. When I the mm series had subs, and the specs were in line, I bought them with confidence. I was blown away again! I was first going to build the spec sealed enclosure for a 12. But when I saw the ported specs for the 10 were similar in size I went for the 10. Then before I built I found that the Absolute 10 ported 10 box for sale here had close enough specs for me to role the dice for 54 bucks. BINGO! Great combo! You will definitely want to tune with polyfill or acoustic foam after purchase. If you want to dump 1000 watts into a hog of a speaker for minimal gains buy something else. If you wanna hear what 350rms really can do with a good sub in the proper box, buy this and build the spec ported box. You won't be disappointed. I'd buy two if I had the space!

Pretty Potent Subs!

June 26, 2012

Cannot beat these Polk MM Series subs for the price and power handling. Would be more dynamic if installed in a slightly larger enclosure however due to space limitations in my vehicle, Can't quite get the wider range I was hoping for. Other than that, they are awesome!

Excellent shallowish-depth subwoofer

May 21, 2012

This sub is the thinnest depth full xmax driver i have found. Excellent sound quality, plenty of excursion- although i beleve the xmax listed is 2 way not 1 way making it closer to 14mm. Klippel says the 25mm xmax figure is actually p-p. Xmax is 14ish on the Polk as well according to klippel. Very happy with results on 2-300w rms. :)

Great sound quality

March 13, 2012

I have 2 of these in a sealed box. I waited a few weeks to break them in a bit before I wrote a review. They have a tight, clean, crisp sound to them. They go pretty low as well. They will get louder after about 40 hours of play time. I've already heard a difference. My mirrors shake like crazy. If you want sound quality but don't want to spend JL Audio prices then these are for you.

Packs a punch, and crystal clear

August 29, 2010

I've been running the MM1040 for 6 months now, and am always impressed with how powerful it is, while maintaining the clean sound Polk Audio is known for. I've since replaced all of my stock speakers with Polk Audio db Series speakers, and will stick with these from now on. I also love the clean look these subs have, what's with the cheesy deformed look of most subs these days? I get a ton of compliments on this sub.

Great Sub

July 19, 2010

The polk mm1040s replaced my jl 10w3s due to coils being burnt. I have to say the polks are louder and sound better than jl 10w3. I was skeptical at first due to jl's high quality and repetition. I tried the polk because their sensitivity rating was 7 points higher so i tried them. Now I believe I'm a polk fan. Just awesome subs!

Nice slim design sub!

June 24, 2010

I installed one of these in a truck an made a sealed box for it, and it sounded great! The quality was good, and for a slim sub woofer it hit hard. If you compare this slim design sub with others in its price range, you will see its rms power, sensitivity, and frequency response, is on average better. Great value, would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Polk MM1040

January 20, 2010

The 10" is a shallow sub with a full spider, magnet, and cone. Not a squashed version of a sub like other brands but, a true subwoofer built with a shallow mount. The sub produces true, deep lows as a subwoofer should. It's too bad that Polk audio discontinued this line. It is one of the better, shallow subwoofers. Feed it the specified watts and it will perform!!

Good sound quality

November 10, 2009

Have this sub running off a Crunch 500.2 and it sounds great, could use at least 100 watts more to push it but it's doing fine. It hits some very distinguishable notes not noticed in 12" subs, it would be better to have range of bass than just the one, as 12" only allots for deeper notes and not some of the higher bass notes some music can utilize. Got this hooked-up in a F150 and the sound resonates near perfect, plenty of room behind the seat so I could either purchase another to complement or get another range of bass with 8's or a 12, or both. All in all 10" sub for this price is a good deal, will be looking up more Polk audio products here.

Out with the Polk Momo in with the Mobile Monitor series

August 6, 2009

I don't usually write reviews, but I am so pleased with the performance of this subwoofer. Also there are not many reviews on it since its fairly new. I had a Polk Momo before this sub which bumped hard, but not as hard and clean as this subwoofer for being practically a shallow mount speaker. I have it in a 2005 F150 firing down under the rear seat. The box is built exactly to the specs of the sub. It is being fed 380 watts RMS and it pounds. The only negatives I can say is of course it doesn't hit the super low notes, but that is to be expected and I had trouble with the sub bottoming out on the floor on hard bass notes. I put a spacer under the box and problem fixed. Can't rate the durability on this review yet, but I would imagine that if its like my old momo it will last me a long time.

Great Sound for Size

June 16, 2009

I recently came out of a Honda Accord with two 12" subs in the trunk, and moved into a Truck. I didn't want to lose my back seats so I was forced to downsize my speakers to 10" subs that would fit under my seat. For having as shallow of a mount as these speakers do, they sound really good and i am very pleased with the sound. Of course they don't catch the same lows as 12" do but they definitely do their job!
