Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Vibe (Lanzar)
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.
1600 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.
800 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
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).
50 - 3500 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".
90 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.
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.
Treated Foam
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
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

Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

U GET WHAT U PAY FOR

April 13, 2010

Installation was pretty easy. I wired mine down to 2 ohms. Bridged it and it hits ok for my lows. I have bass boost on my amp if i put it over halfway the subs sound a little distorted. But other than that pretty good buy. Remember these aren't competition subs. Good for a little bass in the trunk.

Deep Bass

August 30, 2013

They sound very good. They handle more power than I expected. 1000 watts on 4 of these subs sound good. 1000 watts RMS almost beats them up but they handle power way better than BOSS !!!!!

July 10, 2012

I bought this subwoofer for it's low price. it was to replace another subwoofer that was blown. i was only going to use it until i could get a better one, but to my surprise it was able to handle the power of a rockford fosgate power bd1500.1 amp. i would recommend this product to anyone that doesn't want to spend a lot of cash and wants deep bass.

awsome

April 7, 2012

I've had subs before but these are by far the greatest i've had. Put them in band pass and they hit good. Two of these in my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and they take your breath away. Bridged to 2 ohm to a split JL audio amp 3000 and wow they don't disort at all. I'd recommend to anyone on a low budget for a system. The tribal design love it.

worked great for two months

August 9, 2011

I had these for two months. I only have one and if i would have bought two it would have been a waste of money because this is freakin loud in my intrepid. I heard some lud rattling one day while street witnessing and i found out it was the little lanzar vibe piece of plstic in the middle. I was talking to a friend at teen challenge and he told me everytime he had a sub with a cap like that they always come off. Sure enough two days later the cap came off. It looks ridiculous inside my car it still sounds good but if i open my trunk it sounds stupid.

very good subs

July 6, 2011

I would recommend these sub to anyone. I am pushing them with a 300 watt Clarion amp at about 3/4 power in a Toyota Celica and I built custom boxes to exact spec wired to two ohms parallel. My nose itches and my eyes water everytime i turn them up.

Hits hard

June 1, 2011

This sub is amazing. Hits hard and really rattles my car. When I first had it in it put tears to my eyes and I already had a sub in I just wanted to upgrade so it wasn't like I never had one. The only bad part is that the center of the cone actually started coming apart after three months of constant use and it's a very quick and easy fix with plastic adhesive from a local hardware store for five bucks. But I definitley would recommend it to anyone.

OK...

February 15, 2011

Had these for a week. Wiring set up is confusing. Never seen a sub with 8 wire connections before. Sound was ok but not the bass you'd expect from 1600W well at least I was not impressed.
