Incredible Bass with Ability to Perform in a Tight Space!

NVX's VC-Series car subwoofers are about to blow you away. The VCW122 is a jack-of-all-trades and has been engineered to the highest standards. The woven fiber pressed paper cone and custom High Roll foam surround with Nylon stitching help reproduce tight and accurate bass, keeping cone distortion to a minimum even at the highest volume levels. The next key components in the design of the VCW122 are the large dual 3" High Temperature Aluminum voice coils and triple stacked motor structure. These features combined help this sub handle some serious power at 850-1000 Watts RMS. The dual voice coils also give you many options for different Ohm load wiring configurations. With all the above engineering elements combined, the VCW122 subwoofer gives you better sound and build quality than many subs costing almost twice as much. Plus, they will sound great in a small sealed enclosure for those who do not have a lot of space!




NVX VC Series Subwoofer Breakdown

Surround: Most materials used in commercial subwoofer surrounds rip and tear at peak levels. Keeping this in mind, the NVX team developed a custom high-roll foam surround that gives their subs improved linearity and MORE output. Combining that with high-strength adhesive and nylon stitching means that this subwoofer will last through some serious audio output!

Basket: The 3-dimensional cast provides outstanding strength while keeping the subwoofer light due to the aluminum construction. Aluminum is a non-ferrous metal, which means the basket will not interfere with the magnetic energy of the voice coil and motor structure.

Spiders: The Dual Poly-Cotton Spiders are designed to be durable and long-lasting. They give the voice coil the suspension it needs and restore the subwoofer to its normal resting position with ease.

Voice Coil: The 3" (2.5" for the VCW102 and VCW 104) High Temperature Aluminum Voice Coil along with the triple-stacked magnet give massive power handling capability for the VC Series Subwoofers. The effective heat dissipation of the voice coil allows you to play the subwoofer louder without distortion.




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.

Tips for Installing the your NVX VCW122 subwoofer


Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
VC-Series (NVX)
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.
2000 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.
2 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
3"
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".
85 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.
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.
Woven Fiber Pressed Paper 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.
High Roll Foam
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Triple 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.
0.85 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.
1.85 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.
7.02"
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.
10.83"
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.
24 Hz

Killer Sub

September 26, 2013

I have this sub in a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon in the ported box it came with, it fit nicely in my car and I have my trunk divided in half so this baby takes it up and I still have some room.

I've been doing Car Audio for about 5 years now and have had a good handful of subs (l7's, CVR's, Boss{junk, I know}, Clarion and a rockford t1 etc)

This sub pounds nice, it is a little hazy on the rock songs but keeps up beautifully with rap and hip hop. It hits pretty hard, Im feeding it ~900 RMS and she pounds. After about an hour of heavy play - 80% volume - I can smell the voice coil a little; so prolonged use might not be its strong point.

This sub is great for a modest hard hitting system for daily use and to impress some friends or piss off some neighbors. But if you want a windshield cracker I'd say go a little higher up on the totem pole.


on a side note, the middle cover that says NVX blew off after a few weeks of use, might be more bass than they expected.

September 6, 2013

I just purchased this Subwoofer and I have to admit that I was skeptical when i placed the order. Sonic Electronix was fast and this product is every bit the beast that it's portrayed to be! The design screams hard hitting, low bass. The design reminds me of the old school Solobaric 12's I had in High School (1996). I cannot wait to hook everything up. I will have a more in depth review once everything is installed.

November 15, 2013

These subs have been doing an awesome job in my car! I have them wired to a BB5000D .5ohm with a D3100 and a 200amp EA alt. Used to run three pioneer 10's and these blow them away. They sound really nice and clear, and have a great output of bass. I definitely recommend these to anyone looking to step up their system for such a great price.

I was rather skeptical when ordering this sub but when it got i was impressed with the looks and weight of it. i have it in a 1.25 sq ft ported atrend enclosure and it flexes the windshield in my jeep cherokee with agression. Its paired with an older memphis pr1000 at 1ohm and im blown away at the lows it can hit. its louder than a friends memphis mojo 15 on a orion hcca 2400 watt amp. i replaced a kicker comp r with this and there is no comparison. buy this sub!

My favorite subwoofer !

August 20, 2013

these subs are awesome, they sound awesome, they have great spl, very well rated power wise. in the proper box and proper setup they will take well over rated, all depends on your setup. ive done many builds with them and many box types, these drivers love a 1.85 cu. ft. net volume ported box, ive also tried these in a bandpass design and are very efficient and dont require as much power, again this is all based on ur build. ive used 100's of subwoofers and these for the cost and output is my favorite balance, if you ever do blow one somehow nvx does have recones for the vcw series

Best quality sub for it's value

May 11, 2015

I would honestly recamend this sub to any body. Not just the vcw's what the whole NVX line up speakers, subs, and amplifiers for the price you pay it's for sure quality. My good friend just bought 3 VCW's and is pushing a 147.3 on the db scale while under powered by a 2000 watte amp so buy them up u won't be disappointed!!!

NVX is the way to go

May 19, 2015

over the years I have spent much more money on subs that were half as good. I will never buy another sub again because I am completely happy with this one. my only complaint is that the 2500 watt Kenwood that I have running it isn't enough. make sure that the amp you have can drop down to 1 ohm safely and the speaker will blow you away! I also got to give a big shout out to the Sonic Electronix team you are freaking awesome! if you shop anywhere else you're going to be over charged and disappointed!

August 3, 2015

This is a solid 12" sub for the money, hit 133.3 db in my trunk, sealed 1cu ft box, really impressed with the range this sub has. Really shakes my trunk!! So happy with this purchase.

Running a Pioneer 1200 watt RMS @ 1 ohm amp, handles all the power and then some.

Great Woofer

September 16, 2015

I have owned many woofers from brands such as Rockford Fosgate, Kicker, Infinity, Pioneer, etc... This 12" is by far better than the competitors 12" woofers.

To begin with, this sub woofer for the price was a steal for me because I purchased it in a bundle deal with the Hifonics BRX 1100.1D, which is an incredible amplifier both looks and performance wise. I paid around 290 USD... not to mention there is no tax from sonic electronix which is awesome.

As for the look, this is the nicest, sleekest, biggest impressionist of a woofer I have owned/seen. The rubber roll around the outside of the gorgeous cone is massive and provides the sub woofer with ample room to breath.

The durability on this woofer is incredible.. This woofer experienced a rear end smashing accident in my car due to a drunk driver. The woofer and the Hifonics amp I mentioned previously were both scratched and slightly dented in some areas.. The woofer also was punctured unfortunately... but surprisingly it still sound AMAZING.

This woofer is extremely easy to wire.. on the woofer the ground and power terminals are just press and insert terminals which make it quick and saves you the mess and the trip to the hardware store for female connectors.

Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase.. The only thing I wish was different was the amount of weight the system adds to the car... but that applies to pretty much any powerful sub woofer.

This sub is the real McCoy . Has a lot of throw and moves air like you have a window down ! I have a Belva mono 1200 watt RMS at 1 ohm . These 1000 watt RMS NVX VCW122 handle every thing I give them . I do not turn my volume past half way though because that is about how loud I can handle . I turn the volume to 3 out of 63 and my mirrors start to vibrate . For the price these babies , you won't find a better sub or a better customer service then Sonic !!! If you like deep clean bass then your search is OVER .

Impressive and ridiculously clean!

January 14, 2016

This is the 4th pair of subwoofers I have ever purchased, I have had two pair of Boss audio subs and a pair of older pioneer champion series subs all 12" and all boasting a max of 1400-2200 watts. This NVX sub is the first one that can most definitely handle that kind of power! I have pushed a 1000 actual watts to each without clipping. I was a little surprised that the dB dropped slightly (running 4ohm currently vs. 2ohm on the boss subs they replaced), but the bass is so clean I can hear my mids and highs without an amp on them.

The triple stacked magnet is no joke! The excursion puts on a show! However, like the manual says, it stops putting out sound around 20hz and is replaced with the "too much excursion - bottom out sound"

If you buy this sub, please use a ported box (or 4th or 6th order bandpass design) and run them at 1ohm ea. I am purchasing 1ohm stable amps to make up for slight the loss of dB. Overall, from the reviews I found prior to purchase this is the best sub $200 can buy, and I whole heartedly agree!

NVX VCW 12 inch POWER SUB !!

January 8, 2016

I started my system using a lot of NVX products . I have had great result with all of the products . My last purchase from sonic was this subwoofer and I was blown away with the power this thing puts out . I have it running on a Belva (1200 watt RMS at 1 ohm) amp and this sub running at 1 ohm will move some air . I have it mounted in a 1.84 cf ported box and the bass is low , powerful, and accurate !! I keep adding NVX components to my system and the sound quality is getting increasingly improved . I am a big NVX fan , I just hope they come out with a head unit .This will put a bumpity bump in your rumpity rump . Along with Sonics 5 star service , this is win win situation !!

BEST 200 DOLLAR SUB PERIOD

August 17, 2016

Just hooked it up to my belva bb3000dv2 @1ohm gain at 4 out of 10 and she ready to leap out the box the videos and testimonials do this woofer no justice it is so solid well built and HEAVY and good sq so far Def not muddy kickers. I should be able to eventually give this sub about 1500rms off this amp once I get my second battery and and nvx 1/0 and then we will really see what she can do

For the love of bass

February 24, 2016

I have two of these subwoofers in a ported box wired at 1 ohms running off a MB Quart Onyx OA2050.1d at 2000 watts rms. I love these subwoofers the are very loud and they hit hard, and you can't beat the price. I also install a second battery in my trunk for them to run off and I'm using my factory radio.

Will this sub hit harder then a alpine type r?
Nickp on Mar 19, 2016
Best Answer: Short answer, YES! Longer answer is the NVX has to be placed in the right type of box before you get the type if "hit" you want. If its rock music then sealed is the way to go with maybe .75cu ft. If its deep strong bass 1.25cu ft. Ported will be the best. I'd also recommend purchasing two subs and run at least a 1500w RMS amp...the cleaner the power the better the sub sounds. I hope my over-the-top answer helps.

Best Answer: Reese, I'm assuming that one of the reasons for the NVX line to be so cheap in price is because they are teamed up with Sonic Electronix, its an inside brand. Unlike the big companies like JL, Kicker, etc. They have a bigger team of engineers, staff and PR department that they have to pay for. NVX doesn't need that much so they pass those savings on to the end user. I speak only for NVX as I was in the Sonic Electronix warehouse to have a system installed in my car.

does this sub have the tinsel leads stitched into the spider?
ANTHONY S on Aug 9, 2015
Best Answer: Yes it does, this sub is a beast. Have it running on a Fosgate r1200-1d, 1350 rms watts. Be sure to DD-1 your amps so u don't have any distortion in your system.

i am trying to decide what sub will sound better on a 1.80 FT^3 sealed enclosure in the trunk of my car? amplifier is a DB Drive A6 2800.1 wired at 2 ohms

Best Answer: Hello,

First, you cannot wire either of the two drivers specified to a 2ohm load. They are both Dual-2ohm subs, which means you can only wire to a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. Furthermore, you also cannot wire an amplifier to any specific load, as that is impossible; we're sure you know that, but just want to make sure we're on the same page.

Now, assuming you meant to specify the Dual-4ohm version of each subwoofer, we still can't give you the ok, because that amplifier claims a modest 1400w RMS @2ohms, which is a bit more than we're comfortable letting go by. The large sealed enclosure is also an issue, but not the glaring one at this point. We suggest speaking to our sales team to find a suitable driver for you.

BetoPower on Nov 8, 2014
Best Answer: This subwoofer will hit very hard with that amp. I have my running on an ssl 2600. Ssl is owned by boss so the amps are very similar. In my opinion this sub makes more sense than buying an overpriced alpine or jl.

VCW122. What is the recommended volume for this in a sealed enclosure? The online manual says .85 however the instruction booklet says 1.00?
Michael S on Jan 20, 2016
Best Answer: Depends on how much power your running. You could run it in either. Don't know the actual spec. But if your running the smaller spec put more power. If your running the larger spec put less power. Email nvx they will give you more info on your question. Larger should hit lower while smaller should hit tighter but not quite as low but again depending on the power your running

Does the sealed specs include the subwoofer displacement? Thanks
A shopper on Dec 20, 2015
Best Answer: From my experience with both ported and sealed enclosure I'd have to say that the .85cu.ft. Is including the displacement of the sub. From some of the test with different enclosure designs I've found that a ported box built to 1.25-1.35 will yield nice deep bass you can hear and feel down to about 30-35 hertz (42 to 47 herts being the tube point). A sealed enclosure around .85 - 1.0 will hit with more punch. For me I run 1-12" NVX powered by a kicker 2500.1 @ 4 ohms. Puts out about 1250watts which drives the sub hard with no problems. All in all a decent sub for the money.

hi there what is the Peak Power Handling of this sub?

NVX VCW122
A shopper on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hello ,

NVX is a 'Performance' Manufacture, and this is especially true with the VC line of drivers. Moreover, 'Peak/Max' Power Handling is a useless figure, and is often only use by manufactures to advertise a Large Number on the box. Because of this , NVX does not bother with providing such a figure. Instead, the provide the TRUE Power Range, RMS. In this case, the RMS Power Range is 850-1000 watts .

If, however, you are asking 'what the MOST power' that you can run the subwoofer at is, we CANNOT answer that. It would be VERY irresponsible for us to do so. We can only stick to the Manufacture's suggested range. This is because BLOWN Subwoofers are NOT covered under warranty, and if we told you that the subwoofer can realistically handle xxxxwRMS and you blew the sub, we would be held liable. We hope you understand.

Here is a hint though, do some video searches of the VCW122, you Might stumble on a few videos that will answer that question.
