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.
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.
500 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.
250 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.
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
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.

Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
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.
Wide roll
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
5.4"
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.

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.

Great Entry Level SUB

January 17, 2006

If you're looking for good entry level sub then this is it for you. I had this with a 300 watt amp and I was surprised with the output it had. would highly recommend this sub for someone's first system or someone who wants a small yet GOOD system.

October 12, 2007

i installed a pair of these in my uncle's f150 for him. we put em in a sq. ported enclosure and were being powered by a Memphis Memphis 16-CD500 amp. they hit pretty hard for the price. i wouldnt recomend spending that much on an amp that only puts out 250 watts x 1 chan. @ 4 ohms though. but the speakers are definately worth the money.

loud

January 11, 2006

i used to have two of these in my car and they were very loud. the rating of 250watts RMS is very generous, i have a little over 300 goin to each sub and i didnt have any problems, and, lets put it this way, i like loud things and these were nothing short of it. i had them in a professionally tuned memphis ported box that i bought from my local dealer with the subs and they were much louder than a friend of mine who has them sealed with a nearly identical amp so be sure to port them if you like volume, but they did sound much cleaner sealed, its an opinonated decition i guess
these are deninatly worth the money, especially at this price, i paid 250 for a pair of them from the memphis dealer shop i have localy but they were still worth every penny

November 7, 2010

these subs are very good, my dad has 2 of these with a bridged 800 watt amp goin to them, and they seem to take it very well, they dont get hot or anything! they could handle more then what there getting. they are very underrated, they should be like 800 rms a piece! like i said, these subs are very great! had them in a 96 tahoe, and it shook everything for such a big area in a ported box, never had a problem with them. i HIGHLY recommend them!

Memphis PR's are awesome!!!!

May 3, 2006

Got 2 of these to replace my dead Clifs and I must say just by looking at these subs you can tell their quality. Got them hooked up to a US amps 4085 (270rms x 2 @ 4 ohms) and the the things pound, me and my friend (who has two jl W3v2's hooked up to a pheonic gold xeon amp) competed and my system blew his away! mine is louder and cleaner. O also I only have my gain set at 1/4! These are clear subs that pound, well worth the money!

JL Audio W0 Has Nothing On This Subwoofer!

March 29, 2006

About 5 months ago I bought 2 of these from a local audio shop to be powered by a Memphis 16-PRD500.1 ( http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_3006.html ). I wired them in parallel (1 0hm) for optimal performance and the sound quality is amazing, not to mention they hit hard, these subwoofers kill the competition (Such subwoofers as the JL Audio W0) rated at about the same power. Great subwoofers for a great price!
I highly* recommend buying 2 of these in addition to a Memphis 16-PRD500.1 if your looking for a good subwoofer/amplifier package!

PR = value

January 9, 2006

I had some buddies who had some of these and i've ran their 15" version for awhile, Great value, very durable, My Pr series sub ran for a hair under 2 months and blew a voice coil, with a CV 15" on the same settings as the memphis it blew in 3 days, the memphis was 250 rms the CV was 300 rms, Memphis is all about quality, durability, and sound, these subs POUND with a good mono amp. very good buy for the money.

best bang for your buck

December 21, 2005

My buddy has a set of these in his jimmy. He has them running off of a memphis street edge 600.1 amp. They are really nice subs for what you'd pay for them. The sq was good as compared to that of a JL wo or something im similar competition group. If your short on the cash and want some thump then these are a good investment

Not too bad.

October 18, 2005

I've seen two of these subs in action and it wasn't that impressive. They were also hooked up to a Memphis amp. They do produce very clean bass, but they don't hit very hard. I used to have 2 10" Kicker CompVRs that I thought could get louder and knock harder. It's a pretty good price for what your getting, but you could spend a couple more dollars and get something nicer, like some Kicker equipment or something.

On a budget?

February 17, 2006

I bought two of these subs and they have great sound for the consumer on a budget. Rich bass and excellent sound for its class. If I had to do it over I would buy these all over again.
