Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
MAX (Lanzar)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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.
600 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.
300 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.
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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
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".
87.7 dB
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.
Black
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.
Non-Pressed Paper
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
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

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Sealed
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.
5"
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.
7"
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.

Very good sub for the price!

November 7, 2010

I had some doubts about getting this sub since the first one I got fried on me from another retailer. Anyhow, this item is very well made and hits very hard. I have the 8" in my Expedition that fits snug in the factory sub area. I would definitely recommend this sub for any novice or amateur sound enthusiast. It will be almost 8 months and still have not been able to blow this sub. Has a very well built and thick cage with a large magnet. The surround of the cone is not foam like other have and is very thick also.

Great price, great sound!

June 30, 2014

These small 8s produce great sound. They don't bang like 10s or anything, but they do produce some bass. A lot more than you would expect. Can't go wrong for the price. Add some nice sounds to your system without over doing it!!

Lanzar max 8

March 18, 2014

First let me say i love sonic electronix! The shipping is super fast and they are great! I cannot say the same about this sub. The build quality is really bad. One tinsel lead is shorter than the other! It is really tight to the cone and the speaker terminals are loose (cheaply) attached to the frame. It was unusable right out of the box. Not worth sending back due to shipping charges. Buyer be ware of this junk sub! Lanzar is not the old school company i remember SAD.

DONT BUY

March 14, 2014

This sub is crap you can get more bass out of your speakers than this. with a 300w amp almost all the way down it starts to bottom out and sounds like crap. If your locking for bass that you cant even hear and isnt clean at all this is the sub for you. if you buy it you will regret it

going from 4 to 8

January 8, 2014

I bought four of these bad little subs to prove a point. You don't need big expensive equipment to get loud. Im running a 12x25x25 box with just one 4" round port with 4" of port length and it sounds amazing. I have not metered it yet but I plan on installing another 4 subs on the other side of the box I like them so much. My last system cost me over $7,000 in parts and labor and I cant believe that these cheap subs sound better than that. The bass hits so hard you feel it in your chest I cant wait for comps to start this year its gunna be interesting when I pull up with a cheap build. Its funny how these subs have 100oz of magnet and even the sundowns 8" and the American bass 8" run the same size. the only difference is the more expensive brand does run a larger voice coil and some come in dual voice coil.. but if you play responsibly that shouldn't be an issue. They are a little on the ugly side and the basket that covers the magnets do vibrate loose but can be removed and doesn't affect performance when you do. I actually think they look meaner when you remove it anyway(when mounted inverted). I have read some reviews that the surround is made of foam not sure if maybe that was an older series they got there hands on or not but my surrounds are made of nice rubber. real thick and can stand a good beating. One sub is good for acoustics but if you want chest pounding bass I would run at least 2 in a ported box to get started but for under $200 you can run four and buy yourself a good starting amp so why not. Ill post another review after I added the next four subs.

Okay sub for the price

August 25, 2013

These would actually be a good sub for a 50 watt deck with no amp. These subs cannot handle any more power than that without bottoming out. Factory replacement is fine but do not buy these to build a system from. You will be very disappointed.

Little but gets LOW!

September 17, 2012

Perfect little 8 for low $$$. I built a nice ported box out of 3/4" 11-ply birch. (.75 cu ft with port tuned to 32Hz). This sub hits low notes (Chris Brown-take it to the head, Three6Mafia-Late Nite Tip) extremely well and does not get muddy at all. I am giving it around 250W RMS from an OLD SCHOOL Lanzar OptiDrive and I only have the gain about half way up and the bass boost OFF. Very nice product with a HUGE double stack magnet and screw on/banana lug terminals. Well built. Recommended. Can't beat SONIC ELECTRONIX!!!

Awesome sub

August 6, 2012

I have beat the crap out of this sub for over a year with a 1500 watt mono amp. Holds it like a champ in the back of my TC plenty of bass, and if tuned correctly can handle anything I've tried but I can't blow this sub great construction, durability, and price line.

I was amazed at how well made this sub is, you will not be disapointed if your looking into adding some decent bass to your car. I have owned this sub almost 1yr on daily use and it is still going strong, I definitely recommend.

the ugly lanzar max 8

May 10, 2012

Well, I always heard Lanzar sucks, but I looked at these subs for a while. I watched Youtube videos, and more people liked them than not, so I gave them a try. I was not disappointed at all!! They produce quite a bit of low end bass, and still maintain that punch that 8"s are known for. I tried a few different small boxes, and found you get a lot more bass with the large bass ports. For powering these, I recommend Rockford 500 Watt or Kicker 500 Watt mono amp. I would not give them anymore. They look like they want to jump out of the box with that much power. They will take every bit of that. I have been slamming these subs for 4 months, and if they blow tomorrow, I will order another set. I like them that much.

Pretty good for the price!

March 17, 2012

I just put 4 of these in a absurdly small box in the trunk of a 1998 Mustang GT Convertible (very, very limited space). The box is one chamber and has a total volume of about 1 cu. ft. I must say these surprised me. I replaced 2 12" kenwood subs with these (for space reasons. I wanted to still be able to get to the spare tire) and while they'll never sound quite as good as two twelves, they really do sound pretty good. They break up a bit at the really low frequencies, but you expect them to give their advertised specs. However, with the right LPF/HPF settings these subs sound pretty good even in a tiny box. The four of them is enough to shake all my windows and get a little breeze moving in the car. I only just got these and so wont comment on durability. I will say, however, that I'm not a fan of paper cones at all. The cones and the surround are pretty brittle and cheap looking, but I imagine that as long as you don't mess with them too much, they'll hang in there for a while.

Overall I'd recommend these to someone either on a budget or looking for bass in a tight space. Also, note that these subs are ugly. So budget in some black spray paint to put makeup on it.

wow

March 15, 2012

These subs are the best 8's I have ever heard period. I built custom boxes under the back seat of my Silverado and I couldn't belive the bass that came out of them. These things definitely have the little man syndrome going on. They think they are a lot bigger than what they are. Just blown away at these. I have them hooked up to the vibe 250 rms amp and it doesn't phase these subs at all. They would probly like a few more rms but it's plenty for me. Don't let the cheap price drive you away, seems like really well made speakers. If I heard them first I would have paid double.
