Priced Individually

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Phantom (Boss)
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.
2300 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.
1150 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).
25 - 2,000 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".
96 dB
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.
8 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.
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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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

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.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.8 cubic feet
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.
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.8 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.2 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.
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.2 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.
6-13/16"
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"
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.

Not so great !

March 9, 2011

I bought these speakers put them in a sealed box to specs. With a 1800 watt RMS mono amp wired to 1 ohm the amp was turned not even half way up and they both blew in 2 weeks tops. So if you have a great amp get a different speaker. I don't believe Boss is telling the truth about their rms. My not so great p2's hit harder and thats bull.

Boss products seem to me to be a gamble everytime you buy them. You could get an awesome, cool looking product or something that will find its way to the trash in 4-6 months. I gambled and lost the hand but im not very good at gambling. I dont think im gonna invest in boss products in the future but that doesnt mean you shouldnt. It's your gamble.

Worried from reviews...

August 3, 2011

Well basically i was doing a system on a budget, who wouldn't try this sub? but with reading some reviews i was worried about it just going bad on me. To be honest, i bet the people that it didnt work properly for underpowered it. I purposely waited 6 months to write a review to make it an honest one. Ive been pounding this sub with a 3000 watt amp, just under max, so roughly 2500 watts max to this thing. it kept pounding away. It actually still is, im just waiting on getting my amp back because my amp went before this sub did. So power it like it says, because its been taking it for 6 months for me.

I bought 4 of the and have them in 2 ported boxes breaking in at 4 ohms off a PA OVN-1 5500 watt amp pushing 1700 RMS and it sounds like 4 fat people wrestling in the back of my 89 blazer. I've been told I can be heard from 3 blocks away. I can wait I wire them at 2 ohms and really slap on everyone in the town.

December 2, 2010

I think this is definately the best sub that Boss makes! I've had a couple other Boss subs which quickly blew up. This sub sounds nice but I don't think is near 1150 RMS. Around 500 RMS it sounds close to maxed out. I think it's worth the money though and it looks cool inside out.

Decent subs, definitely a gamble

March 29, 2012

Let me just say, the subs are way overrated. They will not hold 1150 RMS a piece. Pushing a pair of these at the max power will burn them out. I have 2 of these subs and they were great at first, sounded good, I was running a 1000W Class-D Interfire Amp on them and with the amp pushing 1000W to them, they could not hold the wattage, they sounded like they were gonna blow, but now running them around 600 RMS will be plenty of power. They distort really badly if u push them any harder than that. They are a gamble, what you pay for, is what you get.

cheap but solid

November 10, 2011

Only $64 dollars a piece when I bought them. They can push air and will rumble your car. Don't do well with higher bass notes, so you have to settle for the price and quality but all around you will turn heads for minimum cash.

So far i would totally recommend these to anyone looking for some good cheap subs. i have them in a custom made sealed box , with a 500 watt amp right now , handles the amp great and sounds good to me , first pair of subs ive had , but still sound good. terminals on the speaker are great. durability looks kinda iffy, but it was a 60 dollar sub. im ordering a Hifonics Brutus BRZ1700.1D and hopefully all will go well.

Not understanding

May 15, 2011

I had one of these subs wired up how a guy that runs in stereo competitions recommended me to to my amp that was rated half of one of these subs, and its been in for about a week and the coils are starting go. If these subs are rated at what they are or somewhere close I don't understand how this amp is pushing them hard enough to fry the voice coils. My amp is rated 1200 watts max and 500 watts X 1 RMS into 4 ohms.

Don't be fooled!
These subs are amazing! No need to go spend 400 bucks on some alpine subs when you can get these from Sonic for $64.

I am using a P8002 Fosgate amp running 2ohm at just under 600rms, they hit so hard i am afraid to turn it up all they way with my doors shut for fear of shattering a window in my 96' Honda civic.

Thank you Sonic Electronix
I will be a return customer.

overall good, but few flaws

dont get just one. if you want to bump, get two in a ported box. i made the mistake of just buying one, thinking that it would put out 1000 watts. it only puts out like 250, possibly. but for 50 bucks!? this product is a comeup, but do not expect the power ratings given will live up to the hype. if you want a cheap setup, two should be fine. but not one!!

Terrible Sub

September 14, 2012

when i ordered this sub i figured that it would be great, once the installation was complete, they sounded great, they are for sure not gonna hold 1150 RMS. wayyy over rated. they got hot on me alot and i was only pushing 450 watts to each one. after about 2 weeks of playing them, they finally started smoking really bad and burnt them. the warranty replaced them but the next set did the exact same thing. looking at the price, i should of known that it wasnt worth it.

Very Impressed!

December 5, 2011

This sub surprised me so much! I have it powered by a Soundstorm EV1500M 1500W amp in a custom-built carbon fiber box. I originally put it in a cheap box that wasn't a good fit for the sub, but once I built my own box with a friend that was made specifically to the exact air volume and tuned properly to the sub, my life changed. For how inexpensive this sub is, it hits extremely hard! My friend even got one after I purchased mine, because he was so impressed! It hits the deep lows well, and sounds extremely good with bass rolls. Great sub!

Boss P126DVC

February 18, 2011

Installed the Phantom P126DVC in my car yesterday and it is amazing. The construction feels top notch and it sounds great. I have it paired with a Kenwood KAC9301D amp and have it wired at 2 ohms. 72% power and it blows away my old Audiobahn 10in subs. I can't wait to upgrade my amp to something that will really make it pound. I very highly recommend this subwoofer to anyone.

Skeptical at first but...

October 8, 2010

I was a little hesitant buying these subs at first due to the fact that I was unable to find any T/S parameters for the subs and because there were very few reviews online. A sub with this high of a power rating for $50 usually means poor build quality and lots of distortion, but not so with these bad boys! The T/S parameters are listed in the manual that comes with the subs for system optimization, btw.

I decided to take a chance and purchase 2 of these subs to use in transmission line enclosures in my home theater system. Each of the lines uses a Crown amp (600W), a single sub driver (P126DVC), has an effective length of 12' and is tuned to 16hz. The heavy hitting (I mean HEAVY) power of these subs combined with the clarity and tuning of the transmission lines is utterly terrifying. These subwoofers generate so much slam, its unearthly.

I haven't tried these subs in a standard sealed or ported box, or in any auto application for that matter, but I can certainly speak for their ability to hit hard and command authority, even at low listening levels. I've also pushed these subs with 1000W RMS to test there power ratings, and if you have a well constructed box (and ears that can handle it), the P126DVC will keep up without issues.

Long story short, if you're feeling timid because of the low price and lack of reviews, rest assured. These drivers will not let you down.

Unreal - Had for 6 months

July 27, 2011

I wrote a review on the day I got the subwoofer installed so this is my follow up. I am still astonished by this sub every day that I use it. The bass is clear and unbelievably loud. There is zero rattle within the unit itself, and the trunk is dynamatted so that is quiet as well. I definitely recommend this sub to the average person who wants a head turning system. Obviously there are reviews about them blowing, overheating, etc. I've used my sub at a setting of - 4 on my head unit, and it is still unreal. Don't doubt Boss, it's worth it.

not too bad

June 22, 2011

I bought this sub because I was on a tight budget. I didn't expect much but I put this thing in a 1.3 cubic foot box ported tuned to 38 hz and it pounds. the sound quality is awful but hey its only 65 bucks. it is definitely not even close to the rms it says it can handle. I can smell the voice coils burning with about 450 RMS. Good sub for the price tho. in a trunk i think this would sound fine but not so much in an suv like i have the sound quality just isnt there. if your looking for some bass and dont have much money buy this thing but i dont recomend running over 500 rms to it.

May 22, 2011

I bought this to replace the Boss 1500 watt sub (which in my opinion is junk! I fried it trying to tune it!!!!!!!! lol) So I bought this sub, Good deal at 65 bucks free ship. I recommend researching your box before you buy one. I bought a box that had an air space that was within the 'range' listed on the subwoofer and it sounded ok in my ext truck. I think this sub would probably be more suited in an SUV, I sold it to a friend whos ext was slightly bigger than myne and it sounded pretty good.

Suprised

May 20, 2011

I have used 12in MA Audio xl's in my first car and my current car after the most recent MA audios finally blew. I was looking for something cheap until the new MA lineup comes out this summer. I'm using a Powerbass ASA1000D amplifier w/1000rms at 1ohm. Just wired them in yesterday and I'm suprised how hard they hit and it actually isn't just loud but it sounds good. These are perfect until I can get a hold of the new MA's. Oh and I've been using Sonicelectronix for 7 years and have never had a problem. They always have the cheapest prices and every product I've bought has been great.

1000W Max, Class D Monoblock Performance Series Power Amplifier w/ 4 Gauge Amp Kit and I love my system. I have a Hyundai Tiburon and since it is a small vehicle you can feel the base. I have my base on negative 6 and my side mirrors move everytime a beat drops. People hear me coming down the block with my music not even loud. Word of advice, give it time to break it in!!! I am still breaking mine in and I had it for a month in a half, that is why my base is still set at negative 6.

This must be a hidden gem among folks who want a boom in their system. Why spend 400 dollars on a sub when you can have this sub at 65 bucks. NO one is going know the difference when your on the road with these hitting vs the so called "higher name brands" like most folks have said they know people who spend 4k on subwoofers alone and then you put the same subs such as these in another friends car and they hit just as loud if not louder NO ONE knows the difference. I need to buy more of these....

Just a quick couple of words about this product. First off, for the price you can't go wrong. These things will rattle the hell out of anything. But if your going for good sound quality and real deep bass, spend the money and get something worth while. Also get a ported box with these and an amp that RMS around 800 because these bad boys can't really handle over that

these speakers are the best, not only do they look sexy but they hit. for all of those idiot who said they smoked and blew soon afer hooking them up dont know what they are talking about. high quality speakers like these need time to break in before you go all out with them. they need a minimum of at least 3 weeks at half power or less or they will blow. if you give them time to break in, you'll have them rattling every house on the block for years to come. these are great speakers and i highly recommend them,

Sounded good - for a little while

February 18, 2012

First of all, like you are, I read the reviews. I was skeptical for those that said they blew them, but wanted to believe those that said they were good. I also wanted to give Boss a chance. I've never bought cheap brands. I've always had Pioneer and Rockford Fosgate. I bought two of these. In two weeks, one is blown and the other is smoking on its last leg. I hooked them up to a Boss Phantom PH5000d. If you look the amp up, you'll probably think I overpowered them. Not the case. I had each speaker in series (gives 8 ohm) and the pair in parallel (gives 4 ohm). At 4 ohms, the amp puts out 1800 watts RMS total to the two speakers that should be able to handle 2300 watts RMS total - together (1150 each). Nonetheless, they are smoking and one is unresponsive.

For the three weeks that I had them, the sound was comparable to anything out there, and they hit hard! I custom built a single enclosure for each of these (1.8 cu ft ported and tuned to 38 Hz). I wish they would have lasted. If you want to blow money this month on nothing, buy two of these.

I ran 2 of these subs in 2 sealed hatchback boxes in my ext cab chevy (rear firing behind each seat) running both off a phantom 5000 amp at 1ohm and they sound great! I ran the amp 1/4 of the way up and they pounded for over 6 months until i sold the system to my friend. He fried both subs by turning the amp up too high. If you are running a high quality amp like rockford, JL, etc, i would say each sub will really only handle about 500 rms. If im ever looking for another cheap set up, i will be buying these subs again. Sonic Electronix rocks!. buy these subs here you wont regret it. I only shop for audio here. Shipping is super fast, and you just cant beat the prices!

Recommend to anyone subs!

January 12, 2012

I had 2 MA 1000w subs with a 1000w 2/1 channel Sony amp and i didnt think it could get any louder. I decided i needed to get some new subs due to the MA's wear and tear. I spent over a week looking at these subs and looking up reviews for them because boss doesnt have the best reputation, there were more good reviews then bad. I finally decided to take a chance and get them. Just installed them and have a brand new JVC stereo with 6 jenson speakers inside. I can't tell you how amazed I am with these subs they kick harder then both my MA's! Would recommend to anyone. Fantastic subs beats the expensive ones. Why need to get subs that cost an arm and a leg when you can get these and they are just as good! Hopefully this helps!

And what I really like is they sound great with all types of music. This brand came a long way from what is ust to be. If any one says bad thing about these subs the crazy or had it installed wrong or under powering them. And for the price you can not go wrong at all !!!!

August 28, 2011

i am not sure what went wrong. I hooked up this sub to a 1200.1 brutus amp. after 30 sec to 1min of the sub going, somthing started to burn. smoke came out of the port and i have never used the sub since. i got an alpine swx12 and swapped the two just to see if its as Boss as people make it out to be....it wasnt. lol. oh well.

At first i was spectacle deciding whether I should go for boss or not, due to the reviews being published on these. But I gave this a try.

I wasn't disappointed one bit, I've now got king kong in the trunk, so move as soon as possible !

Good but over rated

June 5, 2011

I had 2 of these in a sealed box for about one month running on a Power Acoustik OVN1-4000D they were pretty loud but they were not getting the 1000rms each ther suppose.to handle. So I bought a Hifonics Brutus 2000d which actually produces true 2000w at 1 ohm off C******* and these subs blew in under 5 mins. They are extremely overrated and should only be given about 700rms each Max .

First Day Installed!

May 6, 2011

This is the first day that I've had my Boss sub installed in my car, and I must say, this thing POUNDS. I read mostly positive with some not so positive reviews about this subwoofer, but I will be a positive one, because this sub blew my mind... literally. I had 3 10" JL subs that cost a pretty penny, and this subwoofer beats them for shear loudness. I will write again if something goes wrong, but so far, so AWESOME.

I bought 2 of these not sure how nice they really would be. I'll tell you I owned some Sony Xplods, and these subs hit a 1000 times harder than the Sony ones, there definitely worth the money, you cant go wrong, just buy them and see how much you like them!!

Good Cheap Sub

January 17, 2011

I got two of these in a ported box tuned to 42Hz, and they are amazing (a lot better than my expectations,) and I haven't even pushed them to their limit yet. For a budget build, you can't beat these.
(I've only had them hooked up for a few days, so hope they don't blow any time soon.)

This sub bumps!

September 10, 2010

This speaker is worth the cash! Put it in one of its recommended enclosures and 800 W is sufficient to produce overpowering bass. The woofer is light so it doesn't create much rattle, but certainly makes plenty of SPL. 3 of these will make any ride bounce!

Great for the price!

December 20, 2014

To be perfectly honest, this speaker surprised me. I heard this and that about Boss products not good and being junk. I saw the watts and price of this speaker and decided to try. This sub sounds great in my SUV. I would recommend this sub for someone with a hatchback or a car. I wouldn't put this speaker in close proximity because when it's turned up the cone makes a weird sound like the cone isn't thick enough. Kind of a ( boy nnggggg) noise. But a perfect sub for truck or hatchback for the price!

I had bought 2 12's dvc at 4 ohms. I had them running at 2000watts at 2 ohms. They ran strong after I broke them in good. Nothing but bass mekanik for those real bass heads!! They held there own for 2 years, then one of them blew. The remaining one is still going strong ! They are more than capable, they can hit well below 25 hz playing bass mekanik. Great value at the working mans price!!

Oh my gosh! This sub sound so very well for about 10 minutes! Then the coils burnt out!!!
The sound that came out of it in a 1 square foot encloser was great.
I would recommend it IF your not going to push more then maybe 250 watts.

Way overrated, these subs cant take but maybe a little over a quarter of their RMS.. Sound decent if your just looking to get by with some bass but nothing spectacular.. You get what you pay for.

But honestly, save a little more money & get a better woofer.. You'll really see a quality change, you get what you pay for..

Yes they will warranty them but each time it cost me 20 dollars each speaker do the math if u r going to run any real rms get a better speaker. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

Unbeatable for the price

January 1, 2013

This sub hits hard as hell!! I have to remember sometimes that I didn't pay much for it because it sounds so good. I have it in an absolute ported box with an ssl 2500w max amp powering it with everything cranked up on the amp, and it sounds amazing. The sub lacks the ability to hit really low notes, but it rocks everything else. I think the sub is really hard to beat for the price.

Good bass

April 3, 2012

I have this bass in the recommended size sealed box running 4 ohms on each coil via the SPL GRLA2200/2. I have had this installation for half a year and it does it very well. It's not competition power, but it handles my everyday needs just great. I can recommend this to anyone who want's a good deal of bass and doesn't need the whole car to fall apart.
As additional info I will say that it is very important to break this unit in.

Please don't buy this unless you don't like to play your bass that loud. I blew two of these in 2 days. They suck idk if i didn't wire them up right or you just can't play them that loud but either way they suck. They look bad ass and i will say that they did bump good but you know for 2 days thats not good enough.

This subwoofer is a GREAT SUB!!! I was very skeptical because of the mixed reviews but im glad i stuck it out. This sub slams at 2ohm. I have a 2.0 cubic foot ported box and a 780 watt max pioneer amp and the amp can't even stably push this sub at 2 ohm it just kept cuttin out at high levels. So now I have it wired to 4 ohm. Which is still good. but from the short time I heard (and Felt!!) Her pound on 2 ohm it was amazing...My next investment will be a 1000 or 2000 watt amp. I'd say this subs sweet spot would be about 1000 or so watts at 2ohm for sure. Thats what I'm going for. Buy this sub you won't be let down for price it just cant be beat. Get her 1000 watts at 2ohms, a ported box, and you'll be set.

I was looking for other dependable powerful subwoofers at a low price and came across this boss subwoofer. I have two hooked up to a Class D 2000 watt amp in a bandpass box and they sound great. I recommend buying a bandpass box for these. Great deal 1150 RMS for only 65 dollars! 8 years ago this would be 400 dollars and up I'm sure. Buy one.

I just bought two of these and I have them hooked up to a Brutis Hifonics 1600 watt mono amp. So yes I have them wired down to one ohm. After having my amp turned at about half way and after seven days they both stopped working . I have never in my life seen speakers smoke before this was a first. Yea they sound great but in my opinion the rms is not true or they're not so durable. I will give them one more try cause they sounded great!! Maybe I should only turn my amp up a quarter way till they break in....lol

January 19, 2011

I have this sub hooked to a Kenwood KAC-8105D w/ 500 watts @ 2 ohms. Played a bass intensive song for three minutes and could smell the voice coils getting hot. There is no way this sub is 1150RMS when I am not even putting half of that to it and it's getting hot! It does hit hard at 500 watts though, but I would guess this sub is closer to 400 watts RMS. But hey, you get what you pay for.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
Recently bought 2 of these. I could only hook one up, because of wiring (parallel) and the design of my box(dual, separate) Easy fix though!
Hooked to Boss AR3000D.
The one Sub I have hooked now hits just as hard as my 2 12" Rockford Fosgates combined! Which is why I'm a little scared to hook up both at the moment. My mirror already bounces, imagine two running.
Personally I turn my amp off before turning my car off, sometimes I need to give some gas starting it otherwise. Car's fault 03Pontaic
