Top Quality Bass at an Amazing Price

The NVX VSW104 is the perfect subwoofer solution. The series utilizes excellent engineering found in the higher end NVX subwoofers. It features a hybrid carbon and fiberglass woven cone with a pressed paper backing that is strong and lightweight for accurate response and extreme SPL. Keeping the cone under control is a high-roll 3-layer foam surround with silver stitching that is specially treated to give you maximum excursion. The VSW104 also uses a 2.5" high-temperature aluminum voice coil that provides maximum current distribution and has a power handling range of 350-500 watts RMS. All of these elements combined produce tight, deep and accurate bass that is sought after by bass-heads and audiophiles. If you are looking for an extremely well engineered subwoofer at an amazing price, then the NVX VSW104 is the perfect choice for you.

General Features:

  • 10" Dual 4-ohm VS-Series Car Subwoofer
  • Power Range:
    • RMS: 350-500 watts
  • Impedance: Dual 4 ohms
  • Non-pressed paper cone with woven carbon fiber top
  • High excursion 3-layer foam surround
  • Heavy duty custom textured steel basket for maximum rigidity
  • Dual Nomex Spiders
  • 2.5" High temperature aluminum voice coil
  • Double stacked Ferite magnet motor structure with protective rubber boot
  • Frequency response: 30-500 Hz
  • Resonance Frequency (Fs): 32.4
  • Top-mount depth: 5-5/16"
  • Sensitivity: 84.5dB
  • *CEA-2031 Compliant
  • Authorized Internet Dealer
  • 1-year Manufacturer's Warranty

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.
VS-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.
500 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.
2.5"
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).
30 - 500 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".
84.5 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.
11 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
Dark Gray
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.
Non-Pressed Paper With Woven Carbon Fiber Top
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.
High Roll Foam
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Double 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.
.75 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.
1.0 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.
5-5/16"
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.
9-1/16"
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.
32.4 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.
21.55 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.

Great quality subwoofer. The best I've owned yet.

January 19, 2014

Wow the magnet is huge on this 10". Most people think I have a couple 12"s back in the trunk but it's just this bad boy slamming away. My favorite part is the SQ of this sub. It's definitely the best sounding subwoofer I've owned. Worth at least double! Beats out most subs in the 200$ range and it's half that. I love NVX now. Huge sound, huge quality, huge savings. You can't go wrong; very hard to beat. Perfect for my scion tc. Hooked up to a 3 channel JBL amp 500rms at 2omhs in a ported box and I love it. I'm satisfied.... for now..... but when I need more I will definitely be looking at NVX first.

Great buy

January 4, 2014

i absolutely love this sub. I installed it right after christmas and straight out of the box the surround was already softer than any sub ive had before after it broke in. i have this sub in a custom made ported box at 1.2 cubes and tuned to 32hz. right now its running at 400rms @ 2ohms with about 6db bass boost and this sub moves alot of air and hits lows very well. id recommened this sub to anyone who is on a budget looking for alot of bass. i only wish NVX made it in a 2ohm so i could wire it down to 1 ohm.

Truly fantastic sub for the money

December 5, 2012

When I decided to upgrade my audio build for the third time I was debating which high SQ sub to go with. My salesperson suggested that I couldn't do better than the new NVX subs. I was prepared to spend 3 times what I did for a JL or Focal sub. I was extremely skeptical until I heard a W6 and this VSW side by side. The sound quality was as good or better on the VSW and I purchased it for a fraction of the price. For the first time in my car audio experience the hype lived up to the results. You simply cannot go wrong NVX products.

This baby BANGS!!!

October 17, 2012

I have been asked what pair of 12's I have, what 15 I have, is there a 15 hidden somewhere and "Seriously, all that from that little thing?" I have this in a .77 cu. ft. sealed enclosure (for now) from Sonic Electronix powered by my NVX JAD900.5! This sub is AMAZING!!! Tight and accurate, but still deep and boomy! NVX is GREAT! There is no competition! Every product NVX makes is AWESOME! Sonic Electronix is the only choice for your car audio needs! Thanks guys!

July 14, 2014

i have installed one in my car and has now been broken in and i can say that it is bumping pretty hard for a 10. it is also tight strong bass, but i am going to change out the amp soon, because the amp i have will get a little distorted in high volumes.

boom per price

June 26, 2014

i just recently bought this from sonic and installed it myself. i have it on a power acustik razor 2500 amp which is suppose to put out 600rms @ 2ohms, which i do not believe since the amp is tiny. It will shake your car your trunk a little and vibrate your mirrors for a ten. For under $100, i believe that this is well worth the money.

great sq and SPL for the price

December 29, 2013

Recently installed in my sisters car. Sound quality is superb, price is great, and speaker appears to be well constructed. So far the speaker could be comparable to high end sub's. Time will tell.

Best Bang for Your Buck

May 1, 2013

I got one of these in a ported box that I also got from sonic and the sound this sub produces is astonishing. I now have one of the best systems I have ever had and didn't have to break the bank. This sub is on par with more expensive subwoofers if not better.

Little sub... BIG BOOM!

November 28, 2012

I love this sub. I really enjoy people's amazement when they see it's only a 10! =) I originally had this sub in a .77 cu. ft. sealed enclosure and it boomed big! I now have it in a prefab 1.14 cu. ft. slot vent enclosure tuned to about 39hz. I was amazed at how much more this sub came alive! My neighbor is looking at replacing his 2 15's with VSW's or VCW's now. Another buddy wants to replace his 4 Kicker 12's with 4 NSW's unless I can convince him to get 2 JAD1200.1's and 4 VCW's! My VSW104 suits me just fine though... for now!

I have two of these and had originally put a Planet audio AC3000.1D which went into protection mode twice. So I returned it and was looking at the NVX JAD1200.1. Would be good for them if I wired it at 1 ohm?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2014
Best Answer: It would really determine if the amp is able to run safely at 1 ohm. If so id say it would be a good amp for the job. Remember, it's always better to over power subs instead of underpower them.
