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.
8"
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
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.
80 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.
80 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.
160 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.
160 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
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
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 - 200 Hz
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
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
9-11/50"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
15-7/20"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
15-7/20"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
4
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
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.

Allright

October 20, 2010

Got this from W****** was %50 off so not a bad deal at all. Had it installed in my 95 Monte Carlo with a W****** 8 gauge wiring kit. I've built alot of comp systems and was pretty impressed by this little sub. I had never once thought about an 8, usually 12's or 15's with me. But for the price and size not bad at all.

Great for a 8"

September 8, 2010

Installed this with a 12 gauge kit in my 2005 Chevy aveo and it sounds great! It gives you loud deep boomy bass inside the car but don't expect it to rattle every nut and bolt loose in your car. For the price it left a smile on my face and I've always had 1000 dollar systems in my car

Biggest bang for the Buck

June 1, 2010

I have an old ZJ-series Jeep Grand Cherokee, and it has the Infinity Premium Sound System. I installed a Dual head unit (XHD6420). I thought that alone was plenty of bass and quality. For only 8 inches and 160 watts, this thing hits hard. I compared it to a 12 inch ported Rockford Fosgate subwoofer at 500 watts (from an electronics store), and this little guy hits harder. You will be surprised how much it can thump. As far as durability goes, I have only had it in for about a week so I don't know. It has been bumped and thrown around, though, and still sounds great. Unlike many subwoofers, this one doesn't need to "break in." It just hits hard right when you install it. I had a rough time installing it myself, so I recommend going to U*******E********** or B***B** to get it installed professionally (it is only $70.00). They do a great job. CONCLUSION: This subwoofer is really great. It won't blow the windows out, but it will shake the rear-view mirror and vibrate the seats. Excellent quality, looks great, and sounds and FEELS awesome, too. Wonderful value!

Amazing Value, Great Bass

March 7, 2010

I bought this as a temporary replacement after my 12 inch sub blew and I wasn't expecting much out of it. This thing is great though and I might hold off on upgrading. It provides perfect bass for any type of music and really hits when it comes to rap. It won't blow your socks off, but it certainly won't leave you without some bass. You'll be really surprised what this little 8-inch sub can do.
