Champion Series PRO: Powerful by Design

Introducing the series that changed the way Pioneer makes subwoofers: The Pioneer Champion PRO Series. The patented technologies behind the PRO series of subwoofers bridge the gap between quality bass and an affordable price. They feature an air suspension system that creates a spring-like effect and a compressed air chamber within the subwoofer. The result is powerful, deep bass. They are developed to utilize the air space surrounding the subwoofer so that they can be installed in smaller boxes, yet still retain that solid low bass. For the Champion PRO series of subwoofer, Pioneer uses high-grade materials that will last a long time. The wide-roll 3-layer fiber radial surround improves the power handling of the sub, while reduces the distortion. At the bottom of the chassis sits two double-stacked magnets to provide excellent power and response. The Pioneer Champion PRO series delivers incredible booming bass that is loud, powerful, and accurate.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Champion PRO (Pioneer)
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.
3000 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.
800 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.
2 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 - 150 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".
89 dB
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.
Carbon Fiber
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.
Wide-Roll 3-Layer Fiber Radial Surround
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.

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.
0.35 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.
0.70 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.
0.6 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.
1.2 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.
6-5/8"
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.

This Pioneer sub was not my first choice. I also own RE subs which I have broken in yet for give a comparison. I am running these, 2x Pioneers and they do very well powered by Rockford Fosgate T1500bdcp wired for 2 ohms.

Big Boom Big Bang for buck

March 30, 2013

I was looking to replace two old school (mix and match) 10"s with one 10" but it needed to handle plenty of power. After looking at so many subs and factoring the cost I decided to go with Pioneer 800rms sub.
I initially had this hooked up to an RE Audio dts 1001.1 which supposedly dishes out 800rms at 1ohm. Well, that wasn't the case with my experience.
So now I have a Pioneer amp that does 1200rms at 1ohm load hooked up to this sub and holy sh///t. This things hits hard for only 1 10" sub.
I have it in a 1cft ported box. My cars weak electrical system coudln't handle the demand of the amp and sub so I did the big 3 and bought an extra battery.
I definitely do not regret investing in this sub. My coworker has two 12'" kicker cvrs and after he heard my Pioneer, he admitted that my setup was almost louder than his.
Anyway, my biggest advice if you plan on buying this sub is: do not skimp on the amp. Make sure it can deliver TRUE 800rms or more watts. This sub is the biggest bang for your buck you'll find anywhere on the internet. Local shops don't even come close to Sonics prices.

Sounds Good But Overheating...

September 30, 2013

This sub sounded clean in a sealed box. I never really got to turn it up though because during the break in period the sub was getting very hot to the touch around the outside....Just figured it was a defected product but was happy with the clean bass.

Hits Hard and DEEP

November 21, 2012

It is a little bit bigger than your average 10 based on the outer most circumference, but this sub is a beast. It can drop low and hit hard and deep. Be warned though this is not for the faint of heart @ 800 Watts RMS which means that is the lowest watt app you would want to get for this. This sub is definitely wort the price you pay.

Excellent Value!

January 15, 2012

I've owned this sub for over a year. The first year I had it housed in a .7cu/ft SEALED box. It sucked. About a week ago I built a 1.6cu/ft vented box (34hz) and put the sub in that. Now, this sub twangs. Much louder bass with no loss of response (the "tightness" is the same as it was in the sealed box. If you get this sub (and for $120 shipped to your house it is quite the bargain) DEFINITELY put in in a ported/vented enclosure, and definitely use Pioneer's maximum recommended volume as the minimum volume for your box.

bangin bass

December 4, 2010

I smoked a set of MTX's and a pair of Sony's before findin these babies.. I have a MTX Jackhammer sub amp pushin 600 watts RMS.. At 2 ohms 1300 peak.. Theses speakers handle it like a cake walk. The rated RMS of these speakers may leave me wanting a more powerful amp but I don't think my car or my ears could take the extra vibration... all my mirrors are useless with these bad boys pumping... clarity isn't the best but my just be my setup. The louder I push them the better they sound.. I could jus be underpowering them

March 2, 2010

I bought Two of these subs (10") based on all the good reviews, but when I hooked them up to a pioneer d8400 mono block amp they would hit on the back of the magnet. So I call Pioneer for answers and they said my amp might be damaged or that I am under powering them. I hooked them up to my neighbors amp (boss) which is rated less than mine and they sounded great. Its probably my amp so I ordered a Power acoustik BAMF 4000. Hopefully i won't have this problem when i install this amp. I have these subs in a sealed enclosure...I don't think that would cause this problem.

Im glad i bought it... Now.

July 8, 2012

I had purchased this sub about a month ago. I thought it performed alright but wanted and expected more. I knew it was because it was in a sealed box that i wasnt getting the boom and spl that I wanted. I finally finished building my new box for it. The new ported box is tuned to 35Hz and WOW what a difference! I knew it was going to be louder but never expected this. If you listen to rap/hip-hop and you purchased this sub it would be your best bet to get a ported box for it. Makes a world of difference! Feels like i got 2 12" in the back of my car and its still surprising me that its only one 10"! Very powerful sub with a ported box. Still a great SQ sub in a sealed box if you are more into rock or music with really tight bass. Overall awesome subwoofer. Not sure about durability yet as I have only owned it for about a month but it seems like a tough sub that will last. Great price and great service from sonic as well. Fast shipping and great customer service.

These are pretty good subs if you are looking to enhance the SOUND QUALITY of your ride. They really enhance the bass with a clean and sharp sound that carries well and adds a nice thump to your system. But if your looking more for SPL and want your ride to set off car alarms and shake the ground than you should keep shopping, these subs are not for you. I ended up selling these ones on Craigslist and buying a pair of Planet Audio 15 inch "Big Bang" subs that microwave your brain.
