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.

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.

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.

Piece of CRAP!

September 6, 2011

Bought the sub back in may, lasted a week and blew. Sent it in and received it a month later I didnt mind that but once again 2 weeks later it blew. Sub sounds nice but is extremely over rated with power probably 800rms. Would never buy Power Acoustik again!

MOFO is a "BEAST"!!!!!

October 16, 2010

I bought this sub because I wanted DEEP BASS! Be careful what you ask for. Currently it's being powered by a Power Acoustik Gothic 3000 wired down to 1ohm. Cabinet is 4.2 cu. ft ported to 35hz with a lot of bracing. Very impressed. No one believes I only have 1 15 in the trunk. Definitely recommend this setup. Make sure you have plenty of mids and highs. I'm running 4 6.5" and 2 10's for mid bass with 6 pyramid TW46 tweeters. Powered by a Power Acoustik 1600-4 and 1250-2. Power Acoustik head unit and pre-amp. I get compliments from everyone regardless of the type of music. Make sure you have a capacitor it is power hungry. I'm running a PA 20 Farad w/ my set up.

Just received

October 5, 2009

This subwoofer just came in on 10-05-09 hooked it up to a boss chaos special edition amp till new one came (ran it at 4Ohms 1200rms supposedly didn't seem like it) was hitting pretty good on a crappy amp but once the 4000d Pa bamf comes in should step the game up on the sub big time.
Pro's good looking subwoofer, Hit's low's better then a average "15" for the price.
Con's doesnt fit any average 15inch box(prefab other or other box not made for it) had to jigsaw the out rim a little bit so the sub could fit.
Good buy for price its a power hungry sub so make shure ur amp can perform. I will buy another one in future satisfied with product

2nd Mofo still going strong

April 4, 2014

I was very cautious with the first one but after I put the second one in I realized they handle pretty good power. They still stink a little from time to time. I pulled out my first one after a month and it still looked brand new. Im running 1 lanzar opti 4001d on the pair til my other opti shows up then strapping the amps @2ohm for about 8kW. Ill let ya know if they survive a lot of power:-)

pounds

February 12, 2014

For the money this sub pounds harder than any other sub ive ever owned, and ive owned about 50 or 60 in my 19 years of car audio. Im running it on a lanzar opti 4001d at 1 ohm so its getting 2600 rms clean and so far its taking it not sure for how long but I think nice clean power is the secret to not blowing up subs so it should be good. Sonic was great too.

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

Just put 3 of these beasts in back of a eclipse on a 6k power acoustic demon series amp, they are no joke. Thought they would be over rated power wise I was wrong they take the juice no problem, only thing I didn't like was how small the lip is where you screw it down.

Decent Sub

November 1, 2013

For the money this is a decent entry level sub. However be aware if you run a single one, DO NOT CONNECT 1 OHM load, instructions state this is fine one of 2 ways to connect, its 1 ohm or 4 ohm. with the BAMF400d1 at 1 ohm expect the voice coils to burn up in under 5 minutes with a tiny gain, after fighting for replacement and getting it, at 4 ohms this works fine, just cant put nearly the power to it. it sounds ok for a 15 with 4 ohm, I expected better. I suggest going to a higher end sub and slightly smaller size to get the same or better sound for about the same money

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
