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.
15"
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.
1700 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
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.
21 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.
2.0 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.
2.0 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.
3.0 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.
3.0 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.
7-7/8"
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.
14"
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.

Break them in clowns.

March 31, 2012

OK. If you know anything about subs its that you need to break them in or else they will blow quick. Thats a givin. Soo im reading these reviews and seeing ohh i blew it in 2 weeks or a week. If you dont break the sub in then it will blow. Same as any sub. But this sub is a monster once you break it in. Dont pound the hell out of it until the sub is loose gotta play it really low for one week then slowly give it power each week. This process takes about 3 weeks. Thats the problem with buying new subs. All in all, great sub.

152X WANGS!!!!

January 8, 2011

I have 2 of the 152x's wired with a Power Acoustik Staxx 5500d wired down to 2 ohm.
Aero Ported in a 99 mitz Galant.

Lets just say this. My front window flexes about 2 1/2 inchs. When it rains and my subs arer hitting rains cums in my front window. I have resealed and busted the seal like 7 times since I had.

I use them as Comp subs. Ive hit:
144.7BD @ FLOOR
143.6DB @WINDOW
142.9DB @SEAT
156.1DB @PORT
127.3DB @OUTSIDE CAR (6FT FROM CAR)

AND THIS IS WITH RESTRICTED AIR SPACE. IM BOUT TO GET A BLAZER AND HOPE TO HITTING CLOSE TO 150DB.

THE ONLY THING I DONT LIKE IS THE BULKY RIM THAT DONT FIT NO 15" BOX LOL. BUT OH WELL
SO OVERALL I HAVE 2. AND WHEN I BLOW THESE I BE SURE TO BUY SOME MORE.

fantastic subwoofer for the price

January 31, 2014

i bought my mofo more than 4 years ago, it has been in 3 different boxes, 2 separate cars and set up in a house for home stereo,

this thing is a beast, i power mine with a boss ph-4000 and its a perfect match, this sub puts out low low bass so you will need some 10s or 8s to pick up that mid bass, but when it hits its note your whole chest gets tight and everything is just flexing,

the one thing i want to point out is these wont take 1000rms each, i had mine tested at 1000rms no clipping and the voice coil heats up real fast, i would recomend 750rms max'

definitely worth the price if you want low chest pounding sound

Very nice.

September 26, 2012

I had one of these in a 4.2 cuft L-ported box tuned to 37hz in my Camaro. I had 2 MRP-M500's on each coil. So 1000rms. It was stupid loud. I was insanely surprised at how well it sounded for a mainly SPL sub. SQ was nice. Give it 5 *'s for the price!

I have it in a scion xb and just pounds. Had two ma audio1200xl's and this thing smokes em. If you decide on these you won't be disappointed.

Amazing Sub

June 17, 2012

I bought this about two weeks ago and wired it down to 1 ohm and hooked it up to a 2500 watt SPL class D amp and it sounds amazing. It is louder than all of my friends who mostly have 2 12's in their car. My friend told me that he could hear me coming down the street a good 2 minutes before he saw me, and even in my saturn sl nothing rattles and it has a very clean sound. tuned to around 35Hz and hitting about 140dB. I would definitely recommend this sub to anyone and I would most definitely buy Power Acoustik again. Using an aero ported box as well.

MONSTER SUBS FOR MONSTER BASS!!!

May 17, 2012

I recently had 3 Kicker CVX 15's, but these MOFO's take the cake!!! Dont get me wrong those CVX's were super loud, but these MOFO'S provide alot more impact. People used to just be able to hear me coming, but with these MOFOs they can hear as well as feel me coming. Subs are in a sealed enclosure so I know I'm not getting the best performance from them, but with the bass I have, I am truly satisfied. Any more would be just too much. Unless you can afford some mid level RE AUDIO, DC AUDIO, or ALPINE TYPE R'S these are the best you can get on a budget. The best feature of all: these subs can be reconed!!!

I have had this sub for 10 months now and it pounds as hard as it ever has. Powered by a Hifonics Brutus 1700.1D this sub pushes air HARD. Hair tricks, window flex, trunk flex, or deep and clean lows that you can hear a mile away, whatever you are after this sub delivers.

Absolutely the best sub i have owned

May 25, 2011

I have this sub hooked up to a BAMF 5500 and a Power Acoustik 5 farad cap with a red top, its in a 2 cubic ft. box in a single cap pickup, and people can hear me coming from blocks away! Seriously thinking about making a ported box to play it to its full potential. The break in period wasnt as long as i expected. All in all a very versatile sub for all kinds of enclosures.

Awesome Subs, Worth Every Penny

February 23, 2011

These are the best subs I've owned (at least so far)! I had two of these subs hooked up to a Lanzar VCT2610 and they POUNDED HARD, at least until my cheap amp took a $***. Before my crappy amp flat-lined on me, my car was so loud it was unbelievable. Lots of places I go, I often hear from somebody that they heard me at least a minute before they actually see me. I am very impressed with these subs. I am just waiting on my next check to order a HIFONICS HFi2500D from Sonic Electronix to get them back bumping again, I can't wait to hear how hard they'll hit with a REAL amp!

what kind of amp to I get?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2014
Best Answer: Don't get a boss or power acoustic amp based on those ratings. Look at the rms rating on the amp. Look at the internals of the amp not the external size and max watts rating of the amp because a boss amp will only ever make its max power rating when lightning strikes it or at 50% distortion which is useless. The fuse rating is a good indication. If it says 2000 watts with a 25 amp fuse you automatically know it's bs

I'm debating what 15 to buy I burned up a Mofo 122X in less than 10 minutes on a Hifonics BRX 1200.1 @1olm so I know they are way over rated on rms. But my question is about xmax. Does this sub really have an xmax of 22 or is that really the x mech? I know the power rating is deceptive so I'm thinking the xmax rating is as well.
A shopper on Apr 15, 2015
Best Answer: Well I have a MOFO -152X wired at 1 ohm to a Power Acoustik CPT 5500, and they work great in my Cadillac. I have pushed both a few times and no problems. I think all audio equipment is over rated somewhat, and it's about how it sounds as you listen inside your vehicle. From 1985 until 2013, I was a Cerwin Vega freak when it came to Subs. I was skeptical about even trying the 152X, but in 2013 I did and to me, they are giving Cerwin Vega, hell. Good luck.
