Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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
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.
600 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
600 watts
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.
1200 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
1200 watts
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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Square/Rectangle
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
2-3/4"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
12"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
15-1/4"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Silver
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.
Paint

Works well

July 23, 2009

I bought this for my 2008 Nissan Frontier crew cab. Installation was srtaight forward and about 2 hours worth of work to run all the wiring. I would like to see this item come with it's own wiring though. Once it was running it took about 2 weeks for it to break in. From there it took awhile to tweak the adjustments to where I wanted them. Over all I'm very happy with the product, its small so you can put it just about anywhere (under the back seat or even behind the back passengers seat), it is loud, and price wasn't to bad. I would recommend it for pick-ups or anyone needing to save space.

1200 watts????

April 27, 2010

This Sub/amp does deliver good bass. It filled out the sound range well. Good sound. I do have to question it’s 1200 watt claim. Having had other subs in the past…..400 watts, and 750 watts the Boss doesn’t offer the car rattling thunder of say , an MTX conventional 10”.
But for the money….great! I’d Buy it again

Oh yeah, it popped right under the passenger seat …..no mods.

Great!! If used as intended

January 18, 2010

This sub will add the lows u want to ur car's OEM system. It is not designed to blow out windows or be heard 3 blocks away. It is however capable of producing enough low end to find those annoying vibrations in ur car (not the speakers fault). Tips: Mount them flat (preferably under the seat) and place a foam mat under them. Do not turn ur gain past 1:00 o'clock position (12 is better). Maybe the amp puts out 600rms but the cone and motor structure can't handle it, additionally, it will get very hot. Ditto with bass boost, not beyond 9:00 position. Set ur frequency controls and ENJOY!! If u want more, put 1 under the other seat, at SONIC's low prices it's easy to do.

The BASS1200 was an awesome buy it sounds great and fits almost any where. I Recommend this product to any one that needs to save space or just doesn't have that much space. I am trying to find another one that has more power and a bigger speaker for my other vehicle .

JUNK!

September 22, 2009

Bought it, it blew the amp after using it for a day so I got another one. After a week it did the same thing, so I moved up to the infinity bass link, and I will tell you what; it is great. This Boss sub is sub-par and not worth the time. Also the so called 1200 watts feels more like 80.
