Priced Per Midbass Driver (Individually Priced)

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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.
225 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.
125 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).
50 - 500 Hz
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.
8.6 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.
Mineral-Filled 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.
Santoprene 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.
Yes - Included
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
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.
3-1/2"
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.
7-1/8"
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.

August 19, 2013

I was looking to simply replace my stock sub in my '02 Tahoe. The shallow Pioneer would not fit so I had to send that speaker back. The new sub rocks. No extra amp. I did not know the stock sub came from the factory already built into a box. The JL dropped in with zero modification. Truly sounds 5 times better than the original. I was worried about the oHms not matching and RMS ratings. Worry not. If I turn it up I can shake a window if I want.

MID-Bass

June 23, 2013

These drivers made a GREAT difference in my setup depending on what you listen to, they really bring out the missing midrange BASS that the 6.5" midrange drivers simply can't pick up. An absolute MUST for a (complete) front stage...

Excellent Midbass driver. I'm running a 4 way active system, and use these for 80hz - 250hz.. They fill that range superbly. I wouldn't recommend this driver for anyone UNLESS they're running 4 way active, because these speakers are only happy within this small frequency range.

August 16, 2012

I replaced the 6.5” stock woofers in my 2008 Mustang GT with these to match with the JL 5X7s in the upper door and in the back also a JL 10” sub. These speakers really filled a whole in my sound. I'm driving them with a Sound Ordinance 2X75W amp which does a great job. They perform as advertised and I highly recommend them for any system if you have room in the doors. The only issues they posed is they don't drop in with no modification as advertised, we had to file away some of the plastic framing to get them to fit. My System sounds PDG, it' clean, full of detail, nicely staged and full of nuance. I got a great deal on the price and delivery compare to what I would have had to pay everywhere else I priced the speakers. Thanks again Sonic. Gerald

I hooked these two bad boys up to a JL 300/4 bridge to 2 channel, and they sound pretty damn good. I would definitely recommend them.

Strong transition driver.

June 12, 2009

I bought this midbass as a bridge between dual 12" subs and a 6.5" mid/hi set of components. These high pass as low as 50Hz while taking 175-watts RMS and will very like take more wattage with a high pass of 60Hz or 70Hz. This is not a midrange speaker. This is a very application specific driver that should be used in 4-way active systems to transition from a very strong bass section to clean midrange section. My results so far have been beyond my expectations. The only weakness this driver has (if you can call it that) is that it isn't much good above 500Hz, so make sure you set your lowpass at 500Hz or less. I have rated this driver according to fair criteria. Overall = 4 (This is still the best driver in it's class for what it is used for.) Value = 3 (It should cost less for what it does, it's not a full range driver, nor would it be considered a top subwoofer.) Look/design = 5 (This midbass has a nice grill and look to it, and should blend in most installs aesthectically.) Durability = 5 (This midbass can take a beating, is made of water resistant and wear resistant materials and will likely outlast 2 or 3 cars easily in it's lifetime.) Features = 3 (I will use this for "versatility". This is a very specific and limited application driver to be used as a midbass. It's not good for much else.) Ease of use = 2 (This driver will require professional installation or modification to most doors in order to fit properly. This midbass should be only purchase for a very specific project where it's intended use is well understood.)
