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!

Infinityís 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 donít have a sound quality side, far from it. Sound quality is the name of Infinityís 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, itís a no brainer.

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.
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.
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.

Quality & Affordability

August 15, 2014

I purchased 3 of these same speakers to go into 2004 Scion XB I had two 10's but the combination of amp & enclosures was eating my subs up, within 1yr 3 different sets of brand new subs fried. I researched & found that Infinity is made by Harmon Kardon super awesome brand, they also make JBL & a few others but anyway these subs hit hard they are installed in single chamber ported enclosure 3/4 MDF the amp right now is a 1600 watt UL8200 i think that's the model # but not sure it's called Ultra Linear, very satisfied with the bass ohh they are wired to the amp @ 1 ohm but not stable as the amp is heating up & shuts down during the hot day here, was thinking of getting a fan on it but i rather just increase the wattage, as the three subs total 900 watts rms & 3600 Watts combined they are begging for more power. Definitely recommend these subs & Sonic is the best deal around, top of my favorites list.

April 25, 2014

These subs are dvc however they have poor connection options. They use cheap single spade terminals. Dual spades would have made parallel wiring much easier. Or even some push terminals. Akso noticed 1 of the 4 I ordered had a mislaid surround so quality isnt there either..... what happened to infinity ?

Great subwoofer at a great price.

January 1, 2014

My goal was to find about a 300-500 watt RMS (DVC @ 4 ohms/coil) 12" subwoofer that would be somewhere between $50-$100. After extensive research on Sonic's awesome site, I chose this model over the similar Alpine, Pioneer and Kicker models. Pioneer TS-W310D4 Alpine SWS-12D4 The Infinity was less than $60 to my door, looks great installed in my custom ported MDF/fiber box and hits really solid. If I had it to do again, I might have built a sealed box for tighter bass and less space. It still sounds great and I have it tuned right around 33Hz. I would highly recommend this model. If you are on the fence with a 12" sub decision, you won't be disappointed. The magnet on this thing is MASSIVE!

Love this sub!

December 21, 2013

I bought one of these off of Ebay a while ago and was extremely pleased with it, so I bought a 2nd one from SonicElectronix during their Black November sale. I built my own custom ported enclosure at 2.0 cubic feet, tuned to 32hz. This sub hits the lows very well and puts out an insane amount of bass for only being a 300w RMS sub. In the enclosure that I built, it actually gives my buddy's 600w rms sub a run for it's money. I would highly recommend this sub to anyone, but also recommend that you look at the suggested enclosure size and don't skimp on a proper enclosure.

Good sub

December 13, 2013

This sub sounds great. I have one 12 and I'm pushing it with a 250x1 jl mono block class d. I have both voice coils hooked up. I'm actually under powering the sub and it still rocks when I can afford a bigger amp I'm buying another. Would highly recommend for heavy metal listeners.

April 17, 2013

The sub installed well, and certainly has a quality feel about it, despite being obviously an entry-level part. This is the sort of duality Infinity is known for -- their products are quite well made, considering their position in the grand scheme of things. While certainly no Focal or Morel or even Kicker, they just work. And at the price points Infinity targets, that's all you can ask for.

Very decent quality subwoofer.

September 27, 2012

This subwoofer is the perfect beginner buy. It is a very musical subwoofer. This speaker is of a fairly decent build quality. It is not designed for sound pressure level competitions... It is a really sensitive subwoofer. You can get away with lower wattage amps. It is very functional piece for any system. It requires very little box space and is very well endowed on producing the lower hz range. I highly recommend this subwoofer.

January 1, 2012

I would recommend these. I had the previous models in my pt cruiser and they hit so hard i would compare to kicker for a lower rms rating. They had hard hitting bass. I would go sealed on these they sound a little distorted in vented or ported but do hit a little harder.
