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.
2200 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.
1100 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
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).
18 - 500 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".
92 dB
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.
Poly Cellulose Core
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.
PHAT 2 Foam Surround

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.
8-5/8"
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.
10-7/8"

Gotta try this in a bandpass.

August 21, 2007

I 1st hooked it up in a sealed box. It sounded very smoothe. I then put it in a vented box tuned to 40hz. It pounded the pavement! So I then put it in a 5th order BP box tuned to 25hz. Oh My God!!!! This thing is a real monster!! I've peaked meters(170db) at two local sound-offs!! I'm pushing it with an Audiobahn A12001DT, 1200 watt RMS class D amp. If you want the best of both worlds(spl and sq), go bandpass. But, no matter which type of box you use, make sure it's a tough-made one!

hits hard, but not accurate

August 8, 2007

i had 2 of these subwoofers hooked up to 2 audiobahn 8000t amplifers and i do agree they hit hard, but the sound quality isnt that good. i would recommend these subs for people who wants more bass for money, but not for those people who wants good accurate sounding bass

crazy

October 10, 2005

This sub is crazy. I hooked mine up to run about 1000 watts rms and it pounds more then enough to make your heart skip a beat or two. Just beware that you'll need a sturdy box... my first one blew apart on me.

SUBSONIC BASSS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 9, 2005

THESE WOOFERS HAVE A DEEP BASS. IT CAN HIT 18 HZ. MOST WOOFERS CANT EVEN TOUCH 25HZ LET ALONE 18..THE PRICE IS AMAZING...AUDIOBAHN DID VERY WELL WHEN THEY CREATED THIS WOOFER. MAKE SURE TO PUT IT IN A 2.0 CU. FT. ( PORTED ) BOX...IF U A REAL "G" YOU WOULD GET FOUR OF THE JOKUZ (JOKUZ=JOKERS). THEY LOOK BETTER THAN THE PICT. SHOWN. THE BASKET LOOKS LIKE PLASTIC BUT ITS METAL..IF U DO DECIDE TO GET THESE MAKE SURE U FEED THEM WHAT IS NEEDED AND GET 2-3 5 FARAD CAPCITORS TO ENSURE CONSISTENT POWER...WILD-G OUT.....

very loud but....

November 9, 2004

I have one of these in my 99 camaro in a sealed enclosure. It is very loud but i wasnt very impressed with the sound quality. This would make an excelent SPL subwoofer but if your looking for SQ then look somewhere else. What bothered me most was after about 3 hours of play time on the sub the plastic mout holding the spider to the chassi broke. Luckly i was able to fix it myself.

12w7 killer

June 8, 2004

If you want an all around subwoofer you need to get this sub. Put it in a sealed box, you hear excelent bass quality. Put it in a vented box, it shakes my grandma's teeths away. I have one in a vented box, you can hear my 2 blocks away. Oh the 2" foam, moves and play Lil John's "Throw it up" it hits hard. My buddies and I parked their car around mine while this while playing, with their alarms on at the least sensitivity you can put, and when the bass comes in, it sets off all 4 of my buddies cars at the same time, very powerfull and tioyte.
