Power and Value with N-Series

NVX's entry-level subwoofer is anything but "entry-level." NVX has engineered the NSW102 with exceptional features, such as a polypropylene cone, Nomex single spider and a high excursion rubber surround. This all adds up to a sub that moves more air for awesome, responsive and deep bass. The 2" dual 2-ohm KSV voice coil gives you a wide array of Ohm load wiring options for different applications. With an RMS Power Range of 200-350 watts, the NSW102 requires less power to operate efficiently without losing bass quality.

Continuing with the excellent engineering is a stamped steel basket that provides exceptional rigidity and the spring-loaded, chrome plated push terminals ensure a strong and dependable speaker wire connection. NVX's mission was to create an exceptional subwoofer at an entry-level price without sacrificing the quality and sound that the consumer deserves. They have succeeded!

Additional Information:

*CEA-2031 Compliant: All CEA-2031 compliant loudspeakers adopt the same testing and measurement methods so comparing them side by side is easy. Loudspeakers include car speakers and subwoofers. The Consumer Electronics Association created new testing and measurement methods for mobile loudspeaker systems that define test procedures for rating the performance and physical size of speakers. This is important because you can now compare different speakers on the same playing field. Any manufacturers who adopt the CEA-2031 logo product mark can be compared evenly to other speaker manufacturers with the same mark.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
N-Series (NVX)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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.
350 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.
2 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
2"
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).
20 - 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".
83.4 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.
Polypropylene
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.
Single Stacked
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
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.
1.0 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.
1.5 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.
4-11/16"
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.
9"
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.
34 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.
24.96 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.

Serious quality at incredible value

January 3, 2014

Doing some research on NVX products I became interested in the brand. The fact that their products posess some of the more expensive manufacturing processes in light of performance and durability and that their company is remaining competitive in today's economy as a fledgling company must mean they are doing something right. So on a whim.... I tried one of their entry level woofers in my small hatch build to see what they are capable of producing. Upon arrival the most notable things were the spider and surround being different than what I'm used to. The single spider was INCREDIBLY stiff and the NBR surround is super thin, some people would say too thin for a trunk environment where objects could easily puncture the surround.....my thoughts are it is a benefit helping keep the cone light and letting the spider take care of the suspension. I mated this d2 ohm sub to a jbl bp600.1 that puts out a very clean 300 x1 @4ohm which is what the sub is getting. The enclosure is roughly 1.24 ft3 and has a 3x10" round port.... The sound you can achieve with this woofer is nothing short of amazing. By no means is it the teeth chattering monster my RE 10 is but it's ability to reproduce some very VERY LOW hz (I'm talking mid 20s) is incredible. And it isn't the power hungry monster the RE is. When pushed hard it will let you know well in advance the voice coil is getting warm. I've pushed mine and is still hasn't failed. It falls off on top and the specs don't lie. Is says black and white 200hz. So don't expect it to fill the entire lower spectrum. But what you do get is a product that outperforms many of the leading brands middle of the road woofers with a budget minded sub $50 woofer. I'm a really hard guy to please. My $44 NVX Woofer that showed up on my doorstep didn't have a very high bar set for it..... But I guarantee the next NVX woofer will have a pretty high standard to follow. My hats off to the audio engineers over at NVX!

WOW!

August 14, 2014

This sub is amazing! I would definitely recommend this sub. I have one in a ported box and i get great response and VERY low bass for just one 10". I have it hooked up to a NVX 900.5 and this is just a perfect combo. I also have 2 pair of the NVX VSP68 on the doors of a 1998 ford explorer limited. Perfect fit and loud! For a 10 inch sub this thing slams! I'm thinking of adding one more just because am a BASS HEAD like that! lol but even with just one i am satisfied. NVX = great quality products, cheap prices but you get more than what you pay for.!!. and like always Sonicelectronix= fast shipping and great customer service!

Great sub on a budget.

May 29, 2014

Put this in my daughter's Beetle to replace a blown Infinity. I was impressed with the sound at initial installation. After about a week and some break in time, it sounds amazing. This is a great choice for some good bass in a budget system.

Awesome sub

March 20, 2014

Well I'm running this in a sealed box on a hifonics at 600 rms .they hit beautifully nice excursion. Adding a kicker l3 15 to the mix for low lows. Will have the nvx subs wired to .5 ohms and l3 to 1 ohm run both at about 900rms. These subs have very nice bass tones, sound very crisp

Initial thoughts

October 12, 2013

At first glance this driver seems to be a good value based on price. The rubber surround makes it a great candidate for small sealed enclosure. The powder coated basket is I nice touch to the traditional boring painted ones. Spider and leads look suitable as well. I did notice the motor structure was similar to the design engineered on the Hollywood Sound Labs Excursion line of drivers. This design increases air flow over and around the voice coil to promote cooler running temps and increased life of the driver. The cone seems ridged enough for the application and stitched surround is plus. For the price this sub fits the build. If it performed will the question. I do feel the surround should have been a high roll or EROM style to extend the drivers XMax, but for the price it will suffice. I have never had great luck with push terminals but this is a personal preferance. Next up will be the install and then a proper review can be concluded.

To the guy that wrote the review about this subwoofer saying that it doesnt hit the low lows...

September 19, 2013

General Features: •10" Dual 2-ohm N-Series Car Subwoofer •Power Handling: ◦Power Range (RMS) 200-350 Watts •Impedance: Dual 2 ohms •Polypropylene cone •High excursion rubber surround •Stamped steel basket for maximum rigidity •Nomex single spider •2" KSV voice coil •40oz. magnet motor structure with protective rubber boot •Frequency response: 20-200 Hz •Resonance Frequency (Fs): 34Hz •Optimal sealed box volume: 0.75 cubic feet tuned at 40 Hz •Optimal ported box volume: 1.25 cubic feet tuned at 25 Hz •Top-mount depth: 4-11/16" •Sensitivity: 83.4dB •Authorized Internet Dealer Above is this subwoofers specification sheet, now the guy that wrote that review is most likely an amateur car audio guy for a few reasons, one his subwoofer is in a "SEALED BOX" sealed boxes give a broader bandwidth for frequencies meaning it will allow the subwoofer to be able to play more bass notes, "HOWEVER" placing the same subwoofer in a ported box will not allow it to play as many notes, but it will play notes more effieciently... The other problem with "SEALED BOXES" is that they "CANNOT" be tuned...AH there lyes your problem! So what im going to do for you all is educate you folks for some that are reading this now and just know the basics of car audio... The "Human Ears" hearing response bandwidth is between 20Hz-20000Khz (for those of you that don't know Hz stands for Hertz and KHz stands for Kilohertz). What that means is that you can Hear no "lower" sine's (or sounds) than 20hz, and no higher sine's (or sounds) than 20,000khz. NOW TO THE SPECIFICATION SHEET the subwoofers Frequency response is between 20hz and 200hz.. Well then, seeing how you cant hear anything lower than 20hz Id say that is EXTREMELY low... OH! and it gets better! WHAT? Better? The Resonance frequency of this subwoofer is 34 hz. THAT PRETTY DAMN LOW! And WAIT THERE IS STILL MORE!!!! The optimal ported box volume: 1.25 cubic feet tuned at 25 Hz.... AGAIN THAT IS EXTREMELY LOW... So folks in ending this it doesn't matter what subwoofer you buy if you put it in a "SEALED BOX" don't expect some whopping low's out of it because that is not what sealed boxes are designed for. They are designed to be able to play a very wide variety of music to appease all consumers. But unless every other song you listen to on a daily basis is a different genre of music you need a ported box that is tuned to your type of music for the best listening experience.. If you want a subwoofer to hit LOWS you cant just go buy pre fabricated ported box at all (unless the pre fab box shows tuning spec's)...Most prefabricated boxes are tuned to 40hz... You need to either A.) Build the box yourself and tune the port to a low frequency or B.) Contact a professional to build you a box and tune it to a low frequency... Now a little about me. Now I am a professional car audio sound pressure level competitor and have been competeing for 10 years and have owned somewhere near $50,000- worth of car audio equipment between all my vechicles (at full retail).... I do not own these subwoofers but, I can tell you now, just by reading what the company recommends to make them sound the best that they will slap lows if put in a box that is tuned to the companies recommended optimal ported box volume: 1.25 cubic feet tuned at 25 Hz... Don't listen to that numbskull above me and again don't be a dumbass and don't buy a sealed box (or prefabricated ported box) if you want great lows... And of course you don't think I know what im talking about here is a link to my youtube, I need the views anyway. WATCH ME HIT LOWS!!!LOL http://www.youtube.com/user/BASSHEADBOOM

NVX NSW102

March 31, 2013

I have this subwoffer powerd by a 250-1D Rockford amp and it really did surprise me.Its getting about 200 at 4 olms. Its in a small sealed box with lots of polyfill and when I put on Techmaster PEB or Crystal Method it shakes my mirror. And quite a bit I might add. If this is what the entry level NVX sub can do I would really love to hear the VS or VC series of this company. If you had two of these in a ported box with a 600 watt amp it would be all the bass you need.The only con I can think of is they dont hit the low low stuff very well because my amp doesn't have a subsonic filter. Any hesitation that you have about NVX you can put aside because even these subs do really really well. $70.... its a no brainer. But this sub or a couple. You wont be dissapointed.
