To Infinity, and Beyond Your Normal Woofer

A 12 inch subwoofer is thought of as the embodiment of all subwoofers. The perfect blend of everything: power handling, crisp bass, punch or boom, and a wide range of frequencies. Well, this Infinity Reference subwoofer fits this stereotype perfectly. 1200 watts max power while dishing out sweet, tasty bass notes from any music type. Bon Appetit!

Infinity’s product quality and excellence stem from their passion for music. This fact is evident in each of their lines, with no exception to their Reference Series subwoofers. Whether you listen to rock, hip-hop, jazz, country or anything else, these woofers will shine through with every note. High-gloss polypropylene woofer cone is lightweight which assures maximum efficiency which produces high output with modest amplifier power. This in no way means the Reference woofers don’t have a sound quality side, far from it. Sound quality is the name of Infinity’s game, and every beat will be smooth, crisp, and hard hitting. The large-roll rubber surround absorbs distortions that travel through the cone, ensuring clean bass response. Vented polepieces help cool the motor structure which allows for an increase in power handling. Engineering at Infinity is state-of-the-art and a great deal of computer aided design software is used to devise their products. This commitment shows in all of their product lines, and with such a good reference, it’s a no brainer.


The Sound of quality

Sonic Electronix, one of the leaders in car audio, recently visited Harman, the premium global audio and infotainment group, at their research and development locations in Northridge, California and Detroit, Michigan. The purpose of these visits was to utilize and combine the powerful brand of Harman and the industry leading knowledge behind Sonic Electronix to begin working together on developing future car audio projects.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Reference (Infinity)
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.
1200 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.
300 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).
23 - 400 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
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.
13 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.
Dark Gray
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.
Polypropylene
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.
Rubber
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.

Bandpass
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.
1.25 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.
1.25 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.
6-3/8"
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.
11-1/16"
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.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
23.50 Hz
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
82.96 liters
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
.39
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.
.41
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
3.59 ohms
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.

These bad boys slam.

April 11, 2013

I wrote a review before on these subwoofers back when i had a junkie power acoustic amp. I now have a hifonics 1000w gladiator amp and these puppies slam in my mustang. i have 2 12s in a small dual ported box and these things are boomy. I've broken my rear view mirror off with these bad boys. I barely can turn my volume past 25 without it destroying my car and the value goes up to 50! people always know when i arrive at there house. I love it lol i do however want to try a sealed box out and see how they sound. I highy recommand these subwoofers, for the price you can't find a better deal.

August 8, 2014

This sub is excellent.
The bass is so clear that I just can't belive it , I like a very deep bass, not boomy, very low HZ and this guy delivers.
I had a sealed box according to specs and I added some Poly fill to make it sound even better smoother.
I building home tower speakers (5 ft tall) with subwoofer incorporated, so you can imagine two of these at the same time. my whole room vibrates.
Very importan that you "tame" them before you push them full power, at least two weeks everyday, the sounds gets better and better.
They look a lot better in person.
Sonic price is incredible, thank you.

ive got 2 of these in a bandpass box, with a 1200 watt crunch ground and pound amp. I've had so many compliments and people asking what i've got and where did i get them. if you use these suckers right youll have people who paid over $400 for their subs, asking about yours and how much you paid, and then theyll be jealous because your $60 subs just kicked the crap out of thier $200 subs.

Would Recommend

December 9, 2011

Great addition to a mid level system, performs very well even with a slightly underpowered amplifier. Sound quality is excellent, and the build quality is good considering the price. Haven't had any issues with it yet, and I don't expect to anytime soon. It's everything I've come to expect from Infinity products. I would definitely recommend this product.

Great for price

August 23, 2014

I've had two of these subwoofers for a little more than a month and absolutely love them. I think when I bought them they were $60 each and are definitely worth the price. I got two of them in a ported box tuned to 38Hz that I bought online, with only 3.6 cubic feet. The manufacturer recommends 2 cubic feet per sub so these aren't at their full potential yet, I'm still wanting to get a custom built box that would fit my Civic (2003). Speaking of the car, these speakers rattle the whole car at a good volume, I got some sound dampening material from NVX which helped a lot but they HIT. They actually cracked my bumper, certain frequencies rattle it like crazy and the poor thing couldn't take it lol. But overall these are great speakers with a good build material, the only thing that I don't like about them is their inability to hit lower frequencies (20Hz-30Hz) like my old JL Audio's, but that could be because of the prefab box I have them in.

Pretty good, espcially for the price.

May 13, 2014

Picked up this sub for $60 off here and tossed it in a sealed enclosure built to specs to get me by. I have it being fed rated power, well, set my gain for 34.6VAC with a -3dB test tone. After that, I played the sub at low volume levels for a couple weeks, probably around 15Hrs. After that, I dialed up the sub volume. Single sub fills in the lows fairly well and sounds clean when not pushed hard. On some of my more bass heavy music and when volume levels reach the levels used when setting the gain, the sub's sound seems to get colored to some extent. It's by no means an SPL sub and it shows, but it for low to moderate levels, it does do quite well.

Initial plan was to install the sub in a JL HO enclosure, as it may be better suited for ported applications, but it really wasn't the sub I wanted to use for such. I bought it for that though and changed my mind last minute. I would like to believe the sub would perform better still in a proper ported enclosure, but I'll likely never know.

I'm probably going to be switching to a SQ HDS300 as I initially planned, now that they are back in stock.

Still, this Infinity was worth the price IMO, just not all I was looking for from a sub.

As for ratings, I'll give it a 4 overall. For value, it's difficult to beat, IMO. Aesthetics could use a little work perhaps, but looks mean little, I don't believe many watch their subs play after all. I've owned Infinity in the past and have good longevity from their products, if treated properly, I would like to believe same could be said of this product. Features? Well it's sub, so lets see. Polypropylene cone with a rubber surround. Not bad I guess. Included foam gasket, nice addition. 13mm Xmax, not too impressive by any means. SVC 4 ohm, easy to wire up. So, features are average. Ease of use, the terminals could have been better, but it's easy enough to wire up and use.

Can't go wrong with this sub!!!!

November 6, 2013

I upgraded from the Pioneer tsw310s4 12" sub. This Infinity rocks so much harder and hits way lower. I have yet after 30 days to have a complaint about this sub. I was blowing the Pioneers after about 10 hrs of use. This sub has not blown and continues to pound hard. Nothing negative to say: only positives. Order this sub and you will not be disappointed. This sub is way under rated as I am putting 580w of PPI power to it and it takes all you can throw at it.

I went back and forth debating these against the kicker 07 cvrs. Kickers do hit and so do these. I just installed and they are amazing. They have such good quality and deliver bass tightly and accurately. Although they may not destroy your trunk like kickers these subs sound better and are a great value. Get these you will not be dissapointed.

I just bought an Infinity Reference 1260w sub to replace a 10 year old Infinity 1230w. I am VERY pleased with the results (although not surprised because I already owned one). I am driving it with an old Rockford Fosgate Punch 40 amp (mono) and using a 'to spec' ported box. What I love most about this single sub system is it's power and base detail. It plays both the very tight base hits as well as the looser ones perfectly. It provides very strong smooth bass with NO distortion.

I would give these subs a 10 of 10 for the price. The build quality of the Infinity 1260w is superb, and this speaker has everything you need. Spider cooling, Vented pole piece and a rubber surround that will never go bad! It hits the lowest of lows and is decent in the higher hz. I would recommend this subwoofer to ANYONE on a budget, it even outperforms subs that aRE OVER TWICE ITS PRICE! I have 16 of these pounding like a competition...seriously I get lotssa noise complaints from just hooking it up and testing them out! I run 500 solid watts to them and they never look like they struggle at all...

Great slam for the buck

February 11, 2014

Put two of these 12's into a Ground-Shaker box, with two 1.65 cu ft chambers and added 2 ports to each chamber, 1-1/2" X 9" long to tune to approx 25 Hz. Using a subsonic filter set at 20Hz and powering with a 550W Alpine Class D amp. After loosening up the speakers for a few weeks, I have to say I'm impressed with the general sound quality of these drivers. These gotta be the value of the year! Harman may have cut some corners as far as using a stamped basket and where they are manufactured, but these drivers really do the job. I first tried them sealed, but ported is much better with these provided you have a large enough enclosure and use a subsonic filter. They are also relatively efficient and the fs/Q allows you use sealed or ported successfully.

I just received these and installed in a huge ported box and not even broken in they amaze me. I've had them playing lightly for a while and turn it up one volume lvl every now and then. they are LOUD. they out perform a ton of more costly systems I've heard and I've been into subwoofers ever since I was a baby and I've become to gain more and more knowledge over the years. usually you get what you pay for but not in this case, Harmon creates very reliable subwoofers by computers and I've trusted them my whole life. that being said I decided to take a stab at these subwoofers and I am more than pleased with the decision. they are pure bliss, they sound amazing are very loud and look beautiful. Anyone on a budget I recommend you purchase these if you love tight clean deep bass. thank you so much Sonic Electronix 5 out of 5 from me.

Cheap doesn't mean junk, Expensive doesn't mean bulletproof

April 15, 2012

This woofer is beyond greatness. I was looking for the perfect SQ sound and I think I found it. This Infinity looks great, sounds great, and if you want it to get loud, it definitely can do that. I don't understand how JL's sell for soo much? They are beyond overpriced for the quality of the product you are getting. I bought a W3 just to try it out for more than double the price of the Infinity and it cant hang. I say again. THE JL W3 CAN'T HANG WITH THIS INFINITY. I definitely recommend you try this one and don't limit yourself when buying woofers/audio equipment. Cheap doesn't always mean poor quality. Don't forget who owns Infinity, Harmon Kardon. They also own JBL and put their products inside of some of the greatest automobiles, stock. Enough said!

Had one of these ran by an old school punch 100 at 200 watts rms. Sounded great. Lots of punchy low end bass. After a while the surround had come unglued from the basket like stated in another review. Also had issues with a cold solder joint at the input. Eventually the wires going into the cone have a bad connection and the woofer would work sometimes.

Great, very inexpensive sub

March 7, 2010

For a first time subwoofer buyer, I was very impressed with this Infinity. For $70, it's hard to beat. I have it in a small, sealed box feeding it 300 watts rms from my Alpine amp. I have to say, I'm very happy with the results. I listen to many different types of genres and the sub handles anything i throw at it. Make sure you stuff your box with polyfill though, it makes a HUGE difference. I would recommend using this in a SQ oriented system rather than a SPL. It does get rather loud, but I believe it is best for used for tight, punchy bass.

My door speakers are also Infinity and are paired up to their own 4 channel Alpine amp. The end result: an amazing sound system that makes all my friends jealous and my neighbors angry.

I have 2 of these hooked up in my mustang to a 1800/2 power Acoustik amp bridge pushing 760rms combined. But the amp is c!@p and Im not getting 760rms out of it. Both are in a small ported box about 1.44 per chamber way below recommend ported box size but they still slam pretty hard. Still messing with settings on hu but it gets pretty loud. My mirrors shake like crazy on 20/50 volume level. overall for a first sub setup its pretty good. I recommend this product if your on a budget or just want some thump. I might build a custom sealed box and see how they sound.

A good sounding sub

February 20, 2012

I broke 2 of these in with a sig generator on the computer and have them now installed in a sealed box with 1.28 cu ft each and some "pillow stuffing'. They sound excelent and when x overed down will hit very low. They outshine the 1 year old JLs they replaced in sound and spl. For under $60 per, your not going wrong. My opinions are based on metal and rock, they handle old Metalica perfectly and even Pink Floyd.

They slap hard.

February 2, 2011

They are very loud subs I had Infinity subs all my years driving they last long time I bought three 10's before because they kepts stealing them from my car and if you have a good amp it will give you a really good sound guarantee, I recommend even if a 10 or 12 don't really matter two inches don't make differences with sound. I would recommend TI.

Great subs with a flaw

December 5, 2011

Had these for 5 years slammin hard till the cone separated from the surround. Could have been my fault but still it is a weakness. I was able to fix it with super glue and silicone but still it is a design flaw because the contact area between the cone and surround is so small. The plus one cone design has pros and cons. They do sound great and hit lows when properly powered.

Excellent sound

August 26, 2014

I had an Elemental Designs A2-300 subwoofer, which came with a Dayton Classic 12" driver in it. The driver's voice coils melted for no particular reason, in turn setting my amp on fire. On the advice of various forum posts, I installed this Infinity Reference driver in my old subwoofer box, and paired it with a Dayton spa250 amp. All I can say is WOW! This Infinity driver blows my old Dayton driver out of the water in every way possible. Much cleaner and tighter sound, can handle a lot more power without any hint of struggling, and the silver finish looks really cool (which of course is quite important!). Best of all is the excellent price here on Sonicelectronix. This Infinity driver is the same price here as what you'd pay elsewhere for a Dayton Classic driver, but the Infinity is 10x better. You aren't going to find a better deal anywhere else. Trust me, I looked really hard.
VERY happy with my purchase. Note: I use this in a home theatre setting primarily to watch movies.

I had two of these hooked up and then I read reviews on the kenwood KFC-3012 and by far I like the Kenwoods way more. Plus right now you can get two kenwoods for 120.00 shipped great value and you will not be disappointed by the quality or sound. Just make sure you have a powerful enough amp to push them. I have a power acoustics 2400 watt mono block class d pushing them and they sound absolutely awesome

which one is better infinity ref1260w or jbl gt5-12?
mohsen on Feb 4, 2015
Best Answer: Can't answer your question without further information. On top of that, I've not ran the JBL GT5-12 to give an honest opinion between them.

I will say this though, I've ran the 1260w in a to spec sealed inclosure for a couple months (due to ease and simplicity) before finally getting the ported enclosure built to specs. After such, the 1260w really came to life. it didn't do too shabby sealed, but it's really better suited for ported applications.

The JBL on the other hand, based soley on specs (it's EBP, to be specific) suggests it'd be more at home in a sealed enclosure than the Infinity 1260w.

JBL and Infinity are both owned by Harman, so the quality of each driver is likely to be similar and both drivers are closer to a SQ driver than an SPL driver.

Sorry I can't give you a clear answer on the "winner". Still, given the price of the Infinity, it's definitely got a better cost/performance ratio, even if the JBL were to have an ever so slight edge in your particular planned setup.

More so than the driver, the "right" enclosure will make or break any sub. Running a W7 in a poor enclosure can be out done in every aspect by a "cheap" sub in an ideal enclosure.

i bought a Hifonics 2400 mono block instead of the Hifonics 1200 4 channel amp is that a good choice for these subs?

Infinity 1262w
Best Answer: Hello Zachary,

We want to make you aware; Any response you receive will be a Guess. "Hifonics 2400 mono block" can literally mean one of a few different models. This is why its important so specify a model, and not just a description. So any answer you get can literally be referring to a model that is NOT yours.
With that said, if you are running the Hifonics BRX2400.1D, please make sure to wire to a 4ohm load. Wiring to 1ohm will be FAR too much power to the subs. If you are running the Hifonics ZRX2400.1D then wiring to 1ohm is really your only option, but you will be overpowering a bit. Use the link below to establish the proper wiring format. (you CAN use just ONE output on the amp.)
