Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Shallow Mount
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.
1500 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.
400 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.
Single
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.
4 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 - 230 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".
93 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.
Interlaced Carbon-Glass Fiber Composite (IMPP)
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.
Fiber Woven Radial
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.
0.5 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.
1.0 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.
3-1/4"
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.
10-1/8"
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.

Subwoofer is perfect for smaller boxes.

December 27, 2013

I have a Ford F150 supercrew, and needed a smaller enclosure. I got this sub and push 450 watts RMS to it. Turns out its tight loud bass. Everyone who likes music that has heard it wants a sub in their car now. I will say the cutout diameter is about 1/4" bigger then they specify. If you need a shallow sub that can hit hard this is good. I have it pushing the lows from 100 hz and under.

Nice for a shallow mount

November 4, 2013

Durable subwoofer that's hits pretty hard for a shallow mount. I am very satisfied. Have it running off a 450 rms amplifier and it is great. I can have it at a nice low adjustable bass or I can turn it up really hard to show off

Awesome sub

September 19, 2013

This little sub is amazing once broken in. Hits great with all types of music. Hits low, clean and tight. Make sure to build or buy a box close to the recommended .65 cu. ft. I bought a sonic .70 cu. ft. Box and it sounds amazing. Just make sure to test the sub firing in all directions to see what sounds best. I have mine firing to the side. DON'T BUY THE PIONEER DOWN FIRING BOX YOUR SUB WILL BLOW VERY QUICKLY FOUND OUT HARD WAY TOO SMALL BLEW UP A 2ohm BROKE IN SUB IN ONE DAY WITH ONLY VERY LITTLE USE. Make sure to use a quality amp, I am running jl amp at 300 rms. It has more than enough power. You can get the 2ohm and run 500 rms on the same amp just go slow and break it in for about twenty hours. then you can really let it loose. In a car trunk or larger suv, in a mid to small truck or suv it's overkill, I need dynomat for the back now can't imagine 500 watts. it's great I have it in a 2013 Ford Edge, pain in the but cuv to work with as far as factory radio setup. I also use this sub for a home theater sub,sealed with 300rms also very clean, tight, and hits super low had one for three years and it's still strong in .70 cu ft sealed box. LOVE THESE PIONEER SUBS BEST ON THE MARKET FOR THE MONEY AND YOU CAN KEEP MOST OF YOU CARGO AREA OR TRUNK. P.S. Sounds great in small cars too had one in a Corolla,2ohm one at 500 watts rms in sealed box at .70 cu ft. Tried to use it over in the Edge with pioneer box and it fried from the small cu. ft.

After price checking several places this is by far the cheapest place to by top of the line products. Several people mentioned Sonic Electronix and they were right. I wanted a nice system for my brand new single cab Silverado. With a custom built box from Subthump, these and the rest of the equipment I bought from Sonic sound clear and awesome! The salesman helped me put together everything I needed. From Metallica to rap - everything sounds great. Real happy.

Great product!! Had three of these in my 85 Chevy singlecab hit extremely hard!! Rattled everything. Flexed the windshield and windshield wipers, moved all mirrors completey out of sight. Great product, but I would recomend and excellent head unit and amp to filter the treble out of the subs. Over all great product!!!!

Great value and good deal from Sonic Electronix, would by from again.

July 29, 2012

Solid bass. Has my SUV thumpim. This is a replacement for and earlier version of this subwoofer. That one lasted more than 5 years. I use the subwoofer protection grills to prevent theft by using a cable lock to secure it to the floor of my SUV. Got an extra 3 years of warranty from Square Trade.; probably won't need it but it was cheap.

Watch Recommended Wattage

June 11, 2012

I am on my second one of these subs. It sounds great in my box which is .95 cu ft before speaker displacement. However I do recommend you don't over power these at all. I have a Kenwood KAC-9152 powering these subs which puts out 500 watts rms at 4 ohm. I have to keep the amp turned down a little. I tried pushing the 500 watts to the first one and fried it. I backed the amp down to around 350 rms (based on oscilloscope and volt meter readings) and that seems to be the sweet spot. Overall a good sub for the money. The next best sub in this category costs significantly more, so this is a good bang for your buck option if properly powered.

they hit hard

February 9, 2012

Installed 3 of these behind the back seat of a 03 f150 crewcab. They actually hit really close to what a convetional sub will hit. Paired to a boss PH3000D, wired to 1.34 ohms. I think they're getting about 1000-1200 rms. I've only owned for a couple weeks so i cant speak for durability yet. If you have limited space, i would go with these. Just make sure your box is built to Pioneer air specs.

Incredible Sub!

September 13, 2011

I had to complete a custom layout in a Honda Civic Del Sol 95. The dimensioning in those cars (trunk) is very awkward and hard to work with. This flat sub definitely did the trick. I was able to make my box to meet the cubic inches required by the sub and angle it just right so it would fit in the trunk. The best part of the whole installation was doing a systems check and hearing how much bass this single sub puts out. After driving down the road and getting looks and then showing people the trunk, I got comments as to where I got the sub cover. Best part is, I have no cover for the sub. Its how the sub came. It looks hot just stock! It also is made out of durable material. I have no complaints about this sub. Works truly incredibly!

You would never know they were shallow mount. I have them in a shallow box under my back seat of an extended cab silverado. They outperform all of my buddy's "normal depth" subs. Would highly recommend and would purchase again.

Exeeded exptectations!

November 17, 2010

I have two of these wired down to 2ohm load on a 1200watt rms hifonics amp in my silverado ext cab and must I say they hit really really hard. They literally sound like full sized subs. if you dont have or wanna save the space in your car/truck/suv whatever you have I would definitely recommend these. Just make sure your fully powering them and have a good in dash to control them. Overall Pioneer has redefined what a shallow mount can really do. Great price also and no one can beat Sonic!

Best Price on the Net for some really nice shallow-mount Subs!

August 22, 2010

The Pioneer shallow-mount subs are really powerful for thin-line. I have them amplified with a dual channel, single ohm JL amp. This combo really wakes up the neighbors in virtually inches of air space. I highly recommend these for anyone with limited space, the need to stick to a budget, and/or anyone wanting to own some very durable and powerful sub woofers.
