Subwoofer Specifications

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.
1,500 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.
750 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.
2 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 - 100 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".
87.4 dB
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.
Santoprene Rubber

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.
6-7/8"
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.
11-3/16 x 11-3/16"

Best SPL Sub on the Market

August 16, 2007

This sub was made to do one thing, Get Loud! If your looking for utmost sound quality this sub isn't for you but if your looking to get amazingly loud and retain some clarity this sub is for you. I would recommend everyone who buys this sub to put it in the biggest ported enclosure (up to 3.25 Cuft per woofer) and tune to about 38Hz. I've had this sub in a sealed box and it is a totally different beast in a ported enclosure. Now I'm going to have to figure out what to do about my rattling rear window. :)

BASS SLAPS

January 22, 2006

This is absolutely the hardest hitting sub on the market for its price. With 1500 watts of power it is enough bass for your whole car and probably everybody surrounding that your keeping awake at night. KICKER has really been impressive within the last few years, with my KICKER ported box my sound system became flawless.

Kicker Sub

January 17, 2006

This sub has a clean look to it. The sound on this sub is nice, clean and tight...as long as you have a amp with enough power to handle it. The amp I have is a 900watt rmsx1@2ohms. And it pushes this 750watt rms subwoofer very well. As long as your amp has enough RMS you will be straight. The sub will give you a big smile when its in your ride.

nice

August 23, 2005

This is a great sub for cars. I have one of these in my maxima and sounds great. I didn't want to have the cluster of having 2 subs. This 1 12' l7 gets the job done. I have goten the area behind the headrests in my car to raise a few a few inches. This sub is not for the faint of heart. I have one of these hooked up 2 a memphis 1000rms amp that pushes this sub 2 its limits.

good sub

March 9, 2005

i like the l7 subwoofers. they arent like every other sub. they can be put though some serious pounding. just make sure that you have the newest l7's cuz teh old ones have had a recall, so if you have a old one send it back to get repaired. i havent had a problem with the new l7's and i like to push them to the limit.
