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.
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.
1000 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.
500 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).
20 - 1100 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.
16 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.
Silver
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.
Reinforced aluminum curvilinear
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.
Butyl Rubber
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.
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.
11-1/8"
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.

These subs rumble the earth like an earthquake!!!

March 29, 2010

I would recommend these subs for somebody who would like to wake up his/her neighbors! These subs pound and shake the car! I cannot even listen to them at the highest volume for more than 2 minutes cuz my ears start to hurt. THAT IS A GOOD THING! The cone is deeper than the pictures show. It sinks in about 3.5 inches, meaning that The cone has a really good surface area! The aluminum cone also gives tighter bass, and moves air harder, thus giving a louder sound. I replaced two subs of the same wattage with these puppies, and let me tell you, THESE SUBS ARE TWICE AS LOUD. The magnets in these bad boys are huge! These subs are heavy, so if you are going to order two of these, you are going to need to use a dolly to bring them to your car. The rubber surrounds on these subs are amazingly durable. Seriously, this is the fifth pair of subs I have bought in the past six months, so let me tell you, these subs are the final subs i'll buy because THEY ARE THE BEST SUBS I HAVE EVER BOUGHT!!! BUY THESE SUBS! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

AWESOME

September 12, 2009

Overall, these subs are AWESOME. They are very cheap for what you get, and seem to be of very high quality. I bought four of them for a friends jeep, and we are running it off a power acoustik bamf 4000 1D at 2 ohms, with a 2 farad capacitor and a 1/0 gauge dual amp kit. It POUNDS. We haven't turned everything right up yet until its kind of broken in, but its hard to handle they hit so hard. The looks of these subs are also quite stunning. I would recommend these to ANYONE who wants some good sounding, deep hitting bass in their ride.

These subs are awesome.
I have a good amount of money and can afford almost any sub but I am going with 4 of these.
I've used them since they were released in early 2000.

Incredible price and durability.

Hook them up correctly and give them 300-500W RMS each and you will be set.

I plan 4 with a 1ohm stable mono block class D at about 1200-1400W RMS divided by all 4.

Great Subs!!

March 23, 2009

I got these a week ago hooked up to a hitron ha2000.2 and they pound. I was told to let them break in for a week or two but I met a guy with two cvr's and i cranked it. Killed him and the cars next to him. Best bang for your buck hands down. Don't get me wrong there are better subs, but they cost more than these. The clarity is pretty good not great, but the spl is insane. Without breaking them in I cranked the volume a little and my eyesight went blurry and lost my rearview mirror. Small enclosure too so if you are looking at getting subs get them now!!!...you will definitely be surprised even after reading this.

December 20, 2005

I bought two Performance Teknique 12" subs and hooked them up to my 2500W Boss amp and they pound. They have better base than my sisters 12" cerwin vegas that is hooked up to a 940-2 farenheit amp. They have a hell of alot more base and they will make ur brain rattle. This is the best buy for the money. So I hope you take my advise and get you a set.

My First impression

January 28, 2005

The first impression I had about this product was it Durability to handle two 1800 watt competition amps Draining my car of life.. I purchased two of the Performance Teknique ICBM-5712DX 12" subs.. After hooking them to a new custom built box for my 1995 Ford Thunder Bird. After about 30 minutes of continus pounding, they never blow up nor started to buzzz... I have to say. I have blown plenty of "Competition" labbled subs that could never stand the pounding the Performance Teknique ICBM-5712DX 12" subs took after a month of use.

my good friend has 2 of these subs in his '93 ford explorer, there hooked up to a 1,000W 2 ch. amp....and they pound. he is pushin them with 500W per sub, and they are in a seald box....now dont get me wrong there are better (louder) subs out there, but not for this price....this price is awesome for the amount of bass you get from these subs. and on top of all that, they LAST!!! these subs wont quit on you after a few months or wut ever, play 'em loud play 'em long...the only problem you have to worry bout is your amp over heating....overall

~~~GREAT BUY~~~

Not bad at low volumes not made for loud volumes

February 9, 2010

Ive had a pair of these subs about a year ago. No lie they sound very clean and crisp at lower volumes but my short time of having them about 6 months ive blown out 2. The first time i was at the carwash playing young jeezy at about volume 7 on my alpine deck. Next thing u know i hear a loud buzzing noise from the woofers. I then noticed there was a big dent on the face of one of the subs the shape of the voice coils. The last time was the same thing but no dent. The whole time i was using a yzen 400 amp to power them which only peaked 800 watts. Now I have 2 12inch alpine type R subs and a planet audio tq1201 amp and never had problems since. My lesson learned if u not trying to experiment new brands then always go with what u know

January 24, 2008

Purchased one of these for the cramped back of a SUV. Hooked it up to a mono Kenwood Excelon amp pushing about 400W RMS. Sounds great, most people who have been in the vehicle think I have two 12s, and its in a relatively small box for a speaker of that size.
