Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
MOFO (Power Acoustik)
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.
2700 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.
1500 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
3"
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.
23 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
Blue
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.
Cloth Laminated Paper
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.
Foam
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.
1.50 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.
1.50 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.
2.0 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.
2.0 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.
6-1/2"
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.
11-1/4"
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.

Mofo 122x perfect sub

October 16, 2010

Well I purchased this sub 2 days ago and installed it today in my Lexus LS400. I got the sub hooked up to a BAMF 2000/1d Monoblock amp at 1ohm and let me tell you, this sub hits really hard. I got it in 1.5 cub ft sealed box that I also purchased from Sonic, in my opinion that's all you need I strongly recommend this sub. I'm sticking with power Acoustik from now, nice product and affordable. The first is Sonic Electronix the shipping is always in good hands and right on time so special thanks to SonicElectronix for their service. i gotta go now, and for those that are getting this item i hope you enjoy it.

I have found nothin better then these Mo Fo for the price

January 29, 2013

I just purchased. Two twelve inch Mo Fo's and a 2000w power acoustic estax amp and power acoustic cap even tho im under powering them by 600 each they blow my mind sound amazing i have heard rockfards P3's to JL audio W6's and these by far blow the P3's out of the water and with them under powered sound just as good as the W6's now im purchasing. A new amp that runs both 1100 watts so only 100w under powered i cant wait to hear them with the new amp i recommend power acoustic estax to anyony im hooked and will never change they look good sound crisp just try them and you then will understand.

January 4, 2013

Awesome sub!! I have it extremely under powered, I have about 30% power going to this thing and it shakes my car, turns heads and barely hear myself while yelling. Looks good and sounds amazing. Time to upgrade my amp to get full rang :)

It makes my doors flex lol but on the other hand these speakers at heavy as hell! I was a bit sceptical about buying these but now I couldn't be happier with them. Just make sure you break them in!

Best bang for the price

September 16, 2014

I currently have 2 of these subwoofers and im extremely impressed. When i installed these in my subwoofer box (also bought on this sit) it was too big for my trunk. I proceeded to throw them in my back seat till i came up with a plan to get them in the trunk. When i first turned up the subwoofers (back seat) alot of air was beeing pushed out the ports but my mirrors on and in my car barely shook, i was very disappointed. I finally ripped my trunnk completely apart and got the box in. My trunk doesnt stay open but who cares? I turned up the radio about half way and my center mirror dropped like it would in a bass competition. Im very impressed with these subwoofers and would deffinatly buy more! I have 2 Power Acoustic 2400D amp. I installed everything myself and couldnt be more impressed. Deffinatly wouldnt pay $2,000 for a audio company to setup crappy kicker that dont sound anywhere near as good as my system.

Good lows Good XMAX

August 12, 2014

Top notch woofer for a great price. Has great lows but don't expect any higher frequencies like over 150-250 hertz thanks to the heavy voice coil cap. Could use better quality control but I think that's the reason for the price. I am running my MOFO 122X on 900 RMS in a sealed 1 cube box and it throws over an 1.5 inch, shakes everything. On a second note about the voice coil cap, it does work great as heat sink.

Bad product!

May 10, 2014

You get what you pay for when buying this product. It's cheap and that's exactly what the product is. Cheap. I hooked this sub up in series at 1 ohm to a belva 1200w rms amp and I was still in the breaking in period (1/4 gain/power) and only had it on for 15 Mins when the coils burned up. This product is way overrated power wise and probably can only handle 400w rms max. Not only this but the company won't let you get a refund either when the sub is clearly overrated. This is the second and last time I will ever buy a power acoustik product and more importantly one of there cheap subs. I had a problem in the past with one of there 15s doing the same thing but I gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried them again. Bad mistake. There customer service is pretty poor as well while on the phone with them. I will stick with buying the good stuff you pay more for, like Orion for example. I have a 15 on a belva 2000w amp and it hits hard and doesn't burn up or even get that hot.

Great low output sub, frequency range was disappointing

April 27, 2014

This woofer is a good solid speaker for what it is designed for. Nice loud clear bass on the low end, but there is a definite lack of performance on the mid/high end. i personally prefer a woofer with a wider range, but it is still a good woofer for what it is designed for, deep loud bass. definitely recommend for multiple woofer system where the highs are covered by a smaller woofer, or for a low end competition speaker. good product by power acoustik who i use lot of products, great job sonic, great prices and fast shipping as always!

mofo 12

April 10, 2014

I been using power acoustik amps for a while most of my friends use the amps as well. I have heard that the subs were not that good I use mtx subs in the past but wanted to try these. Let me tell you I have one mofo 12 at one ohm hooked up to a 4000 ov1 power acoustik in my Nissan titan and it's dam loud. The only thing is I wish I could put two of them in my truck. For the price and to only have on sub it's insane of how loud it can be.

Best Answer: Both speakers are great of course the orions are the loudest but in my opinion the Power Acoustik mofos are right up there with them which speaker I would choose I would go based on how much amp power lm using the rms for the Power Acoustik is 1500 watts a peace the rms for Orion 2000 or more Power Acoustik you can't beat the value for the money and like orion thay can take abeating
