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.
10"
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.
2100 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.
1050 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).
35 - 2,200 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".
88 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.
6 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
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.
0.6 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.
0.6 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.
1.0 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.
1.0 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.
6.375"
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.
9.125"
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.
40 Hz
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.
40.32 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.
.69
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.
.548
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.

Pretty banging for a cheap beginning

November 17, 2010

So I bought these as my first system setup. I bought 2 of them all out for the price and size. all of the power ratings are way more than they actually state, but i also liked the way they looked. for the price, they're definitely worth it. only problem is that the spyder wears really quick so they start making a shaky noise after a few months. also if you get these subs i would recommend sticking to a boss amp that way the fake power ratings match up and you don't blow your subs. other than that, for cheap 10's these things shake my ride and are surprisingly clear and sound great, of course for what you paid for them.

Best 10" Sub I have ever heard.

January 18, 2012

I recently purchased the 10" Boss Subs on a package deal Sonic electronic offered. The package included two 10" Boss Subs, Autotek Mean Machine 4,000 watt mono amplifier, 2 gauge wiring and the enclosure for 300 and something dollars. First of all let me just say that I have bought some good sound packages before but this one tops them all. I have an answer for all the negative reviews on this product. If you want a Sub woofer to push the watts it advertises you have to buy a good amplifier at least 2,000 watts and up and wire the dual voice coil properly. Please don't try and bridge your 300 watt amp for these subs.

no

May 25, 2011

Let's start off by saying that I would not recommend this subwoofer unless you want a little bass. I bought 2 12" of this subwoofer which actually has more wattage and within 20 minutes of use, hooked up to a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1D amplifier which has 1200 watts RMS @1 ohm and each subwoofer states it could handle 1150 watts RMS and one of the subwoofers locked up. They sounded pretty decent until than.

If you want a mediocore system I'd recommend this subwoofer, but just use a lightweight amplifier like possibly a BOSS amp or possibly a Sony. Stay away from the heavyweights like JL Audio, MTX, etc.

Boss Phantom p106 dvc

September 22, 2012

I've been a Boss soldier for over 10 years. Had my fare share of Fosgate's, Mtx's, Kicker's and Audiobahn's, etc. Boss is the best premium car audio supplier when it comes to the average joe. Rule #1 most Boss subs won't handle a 1ohm load, so wire it accordingly. Rule #2 use thick speaker wire, Period. Rule #3 use the right type box. Not all sealed or ported boxes are created equal. Rule #4 use a powerful amp. Rule #5 use the right gauge power & ground wire. Rule #6 buy a capacitor. If you fail to follow these 6 rules, then you won't succeed with anything Boss Car Audio.

not a good sub

July 15, 2012

DO NOT BUY. I had 2 of these hooked to my Brutus 1200.1 at 1-ohm (off of my 1 Fi SSD 12 at 1 ohm), and it blew both subs within 20 minutes. My buddy wanted them, but didn't have his amp yet. I hooked them to mine for the time being, and they both locked up within 20 minutes. And don't say, "oh, you wired them wrong," or something, 'cause I checked the ohms with my multimeter and turned down my amp before I turned them on, and they still blew. If you want a good system get Fi, KICKER, ALPINE, or ROCKFORD, or just wire them to a Boss amp so that they even out. You subtract 5-600 watts from anything Boss rates. Trust me, I've got a Chaos 3800D blown next to my bed from 2 L5's which it "overpowered."

1050 rms

April 2, 2012

Well i bought one a week ago. I have a kenwood 840 amp briged. This subwoofer says 1050rms but dont think for a minute it can handle any power. 2 and a half days later I'm buying a new sub. Melted it. Sounded good for a day but the first time i put any real power to it it locked up. To me this speaker is for a 500 watt amp or smaller.

Not what it says

December 15, 2012

These speakers look nice and that is about it! We bought one and bought all the stuff the site recommended for proper installation. 2 days later it fried. So we tried again and bought another and made sure we hooked it up right, chalked the first one up to user error. My boyfriend is a professional with stereo systems and the RMS rating on these speakers said they would handle our amp...wrong. We had better luck with the cheapies from wal-mart. The price is great but you get what you pay for.

High quality yet very affordable

April 26, 2012

I have been professionaly installing car stereo systems for about ten years. To all the negative comments on these subs, maybe you all should have them installed professionally; you obviously did somthing wrong. These subs will compete with the best! They hit hard and deep. I have two of these in a sealed box with a Boss Phantom 3000 amp, and I was shocked at how good they sound! I have had just about all the top names, and these will hold their own against any of them for a quarter of the price. You will not find a better sub for the money! Boss is extremely underrated. I highly recommend these subs. But make sure you get an amp that will push out at least 800 watts to each sub if you want them to realy slam!!!

Complete Junk!

October 9, 2010

I ordered this sub after reading good reviews on the 12" model. This was the worst sub I have ever heard in my life. I have a Hifonics amp that puts out 1600 watts RMS, which should be plenty of power to make these subs pound. All these subs did was move a lot and make a lot of noise. The sub made more noise than bass it produced. My factory stereo sounded better in my Jeep Grand Cherokee with no subs than these did! I have hooked up many systems and know what I am doing, these subs are just junk. The only positive is their looks. I would not recommend these subs to anybody that is looking for bass. If you are looking for a noise maker these are what you are looking for.

Great woofer!

July 31, 2010

I would recommend this Boss subwoofer to anyone out there. This is the first Boss woofer I've bought and i was extremely impressed with it. The subwoofer has incredible excursion! I have one of these subs and i just ordered another one about five minutes ago. Just one of these shakes my mirror more than my 12" jbl i had! There is only one downfall about these... the spider wears out kind of fast. I've had mine for about 3 months and the spider is really loose but it still hits extremely hard. I have people starring at me when i drive by
