Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Type-R (Alpine)
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.
3000 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.
1000 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.
2.6"
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).
26 - 300 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".
82 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.
20 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.
Kevlar Reinforced Pulp (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.
Santoprene 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.
.58 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.
.58 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.
1.1 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.
1.1 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.
5-7/8"
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.
9-3/16"
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.
31 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.
18 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.

The new generation of the SWR line.

August 6, 2012

Not as sloppy sounding as the previouse models. I am running it on a hifonics brz 1200.1 in a 1 cubic foot sealed box. And the sound is so clean and tight. This 10" sub can hit the low notes! Props to Alpine its a bargain for the price. Thanks Sonic!

Best bang for the buck

June 22, 2012

Well worth the price compared to the competition. I'm running one of these in a custom box made for a 350Z. Simply amazing what this single 10" subwoofer can do. My amp is a Rockford Fosgate P400-1 and they are set for 2 ohms. The actual RMS output for the amp is 534 watts @ 2 ohms. I thought I might end up needing more but I'm very satisfied with the results. I highly recommend this sub.

Amazing bass

September 8, 2014

I have a toyota sienna and I have a custom box in the back by the gate or hatch whatever you call it. I put this sub in and I am running a phoenix gold 1600 watt amp. I have it bridged to 1200 watts at 4ohms. (Sub is 4ohm) after break in period. Oh my god is all I have to say. My whole van bumps. I sware u think there is more than just a 10 back there. No joke this is coming from a guy that had two w7 13s in my car. So I needed something with some bang and this sub will not disappoint you. Alpine and sonic electronixs rock.

Wow this thing hits like Thor. I already had a swr10d43-x and was very impressed with it. It is 600 watts rms. This new swr 105 is a positive step above at 1000 watts rms and just as clear if not clearer than before. I can't think of one bad thing about this sub unless it is the fact that I don't have room for two. Thanks again Sonic you are by far the best when it comes to electronics. Keep up the good work.

Spend the extra money to get something better sonic offers

April 16, 2014

Pros - Clear sound with somewhat decent volume for the price.

Cons - Durability isn't that great. Other subs offered by sonic are much "louder" with the same or better sound quality and last much longer.

Sub is very clear. Not as "loud" as everyone claims. Broke in the sub for the correct break in period and after that the sub completely fried out. With just a few more dollars a much better sub can be purchased.

Great cheap bass!!

March 16, 2014

These things are loud! For what you pay you get more then expected. Best bang for your buck. Put two of these in my 2014 sierra in a under the seat ported fox box and it bangs! Just make sure ou break them in correctly. I had 2 12 alpine type r shallows and fried them hit me too hard too soon. Alpine recommends 4-6 weeks of breakin in. Otherwise great overall!

Excellent sound quality

September 19, 2013

I'm running this Alpine SWR-10D4 with a Rockford Fosgate PRIME R1000-1D. I built a custom box tuned to 35Htz and let me tell you this; I have never heard bass sound this awesome! It's not as loud as you would expect from 1000 watts but it's only 1 10" sub too. After all, the more surface area, the more sound. Definitely a good buy though.

Awesome as always from Alpine!!

September 17, 2013

I have always been a fan of Alpine speakers/subs. The one thing that you need to know about Alpine is they love power! If you do not intend on fully powering the speakers/subs you purchase close to or right at their recommended RMS, then go with something else!
That being said, this sub is currently in a custom sealed fiberglass enclosure, just under 1cf. I am running Alpine's 1000X1 RMS @ 2ohm mono class D to it, and it loves it! Sounds better than the 2 12's I had before. Sure, being a 10, it can't hit all the extremely low notes of a 12 or 15, but it does the job.
If you have the power to push it, you will not be disappointed.

SPL VS CLARITY? These 10s have both!

September 17, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised to hear the low clean/clear notes bellowing from these subs. They've wow'd me since day 1 and I'm only getting more excited to hear more from them wen they are broken in. definitely a great buy! Would easily recommend to anyone who wants to save a little trunk space but don't want to sacrifice power.

I am pushing a single swr-10d4 in my f-150 after destroying two other subs. I currently have 500 watts rms pushing my alpine but this beast needs more. The response, sound quality and durability of this sub is amazing. This sub is badass and I recommend it to anyone looking for better sound in their ride.

June 27, 2013

I purchase 2 swr 10d4 for my ford Taurus and I have to say they kick butt.. but you have to buy the proper amp In order to get the full effect of the subs. I would recommend these subs only if your amp can handle 2000 watts rms not peak. you won't regret these subs

is it ok to pair the Alpine SWR-10D4 WITH THE ALPINE 500 WATT AMP? I WAS TOLD THAT IT WOULD UNDER POWER THE SUB AND BLOW IT
B R on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: No it is not ok to under power any sub especially by half of rated power.it would be ok if it was only maybe 200 watts but any more would be risky at best. I . Have a similar situation. I have a swr1043d that is 600 watts rms and a swr10d4 with a brx1600.1d amp. I need to get rid of my 1043d & get another 10d 4. I would be interested in some sort of trade. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. It is ok to contact me if it is ok . With sonic electronix.
