Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
13"
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
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.
350 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
350 watts
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.
700 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
700 watts
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
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".
79 dB
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 - 500 Hz
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.
9.0 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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Truck Style, Slim with Angled Front
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
14-1/2"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
30"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
2-1/2"
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
5"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
3/4"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Gray
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.

Power Acoustik THIN-13BX

September 17, 2013

This subwhoofer is great! It hits hard in my single cab truck. In a bigger vehicle, it probably won't be as effective but in a small space, it puts out a great amount of bass and sounds great. I'm really glad I bought it.

It is an ok product. The bad thing is the hard plastic cover on the sub rattles when it hits. I'm only pushing 350 watts I thought that would be ok, but it's not. About 100 watt amp would be perfect so it won't rattle.

I have been using this in my single cab GMC pick up and have been so impressed. Hits very hard and is very durable. I have been so happy with it that I will never hesitate to buy another Power Acoustik product.

I bought this sub cause it was the only one thin enough and I was very skeptical about the brand and just about it being so thin but it actually hits pretty hard. I'm very happy with it and it definitely surpassed my expectations. Givin it 340 watts rms (@ 4 ohms) from a JL amp.

Awesome for those limited on space!

April 21, 2014

This is my 2nd box, i sold my other superduty and bought another and put the same sub and amp combo in it. This fits behind the seat on the new crew cabs with the power sliding window. The jack will neeed to be moved and a piece of the carpet trimmed but it fits quite nicely with the amp right next to it. Fills out the sound very nicely, added indash dvd player and 4 pioneer 6x8's in the doors and rear cab.

I would definitely recommend this sub for anyone with limited space (standard cab pickup truck) ive had mine for six months in my 89 f150 and it stills sounds and looks new! Some may be weary that it isnt as big a name as alpine or kicker but this thing KICKS! Im most likely going to order another one for my other truck!

This product is great if you have a small confined space you are trying to fit and want to add some bass. If you are looking to just round out your system with good bass this will work. If you are looking for a thump or hard hit this is not the right choice. It is however a great product and sounds very good. I would recommend this more for a family ride (hopefully that makes sense to you).

Great sub for sigle cab pickup

December 29, 2015

Purchased for my 72 GMC truck because of the thin box design. I wanted a box that would easily fit behind the seats with no interference and it fits perfectly. Powering with 310 watts RMS and this thing thumps hard in a small space. Sounds great! I would recommend this to anyone who has limited space.

What would be a good amp for this subwoofer?
Dylan W on Feb 12, 2015
Best Answer: On the box it says a 700 watt amp however I have an old mtx thunder that's a 280 watt and it's fine with me it doesn't just hit like a competition grade sub but it's got a good bass you really cant go wrong it jist depends on how hard you want to it to hit... hope this helps
