Incredible Bass with Ability to Perform in a Tight Space!

NVX's VC-Series car subwoofers are about to blow you away. The VCW124 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 VCW124 are the large dual 3" High Temperature Aluminum voice coils and triple stacked motor structure. With all of these features combined this sub can 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 VCW124 subwoofer gives you a better sound and build quality of many subs costing almost twice as much. They even sound amazing in small sealed enclosure for people with limited space!

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.
VC (NVX)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
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 - 220 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.
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.
.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.
1.25 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"
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.
11-1/4"
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.

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.
23.6 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.
63.51 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.
0.38
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.
0.435

NVX is a great company

May 9, 2013

Ok first off let me say my last system was 2 american bass xfl 12 (old style baskets) on a crescendo 2000d at .5ohm..could burp a mid 147db at 35hz.. had that setup for over a year.. anyhow i sold everything and went almost a entire year with NO bass at all..not even a cd player.. so i decided to get back into audio again..I 1st heard of nvx from mazda2284 on youtube.. and after talking to him i decided to order some nvx products.. i have 2 of these vcw 12s on a BELVA 5000d.. wired to 1ohm and gains set and O SCOPED for a CLEAN 2000w.. i have a 180a alternator and 150amp hr of battery bank and 0g wires.. i have these subs in a 3.8 cubic foot NET (meaning each sub really sees 1.9 cubes each) using 14" of port per cubic foot and tuned to 30hz.. i 1st tried the recommended 1.2 cube ported box but the ouput was absolutely HORRIBLE.. the 1.9 cubes REALLY made them come to life they are JUST as loud as my xfls were and play a good bit lower also (xfls struggled below 25hz these nvx's play 20hz EASILY) and they take the power all day long.. with my voltage dropping to around 13.2s full tilt i can play for a constant 1hr and the subs are still COOL and so is the amp

Top notch, sir. Top notch.

July 27, 2014

They beat, and beat, and beat... "W3 Killers" is an appropriate, if not understated, title. I'm running (2) at 1Ω with a Hifonics 1600.1. Now granted, I have them under-powered at 800 watts each in my 2 door 89 GMC C1500, but they are simply powerful, clean & worth the investment. I've read other reviews regarding subs & their companies, and most bass-heads and audio enthusiasts are trying to steer clear from NVX because they are a newer company... but I must insist, give them a try. I have had great experience with NVX, including but not limited to SQ, equipment quality, durability & pricing. These just murder the competition.

July 13, 2014

This sub is the real deal buy it before this company becomes well known and the price goes crazy. This sub is by far the best buy for a 200 dollar woofer and when installed in a slightly larger than recommended enclosure will produce bass almost as well as my w7. If I could do it all again I would buy nvx only and save myself a small fortune.

Best subs yet!

June 3, 2014

I bought the NVX VCW124s (2) to use in my vehicle with a Hifonics Brutus 2200 RMS Monoblock amp. The subs Voice coils are hooked in parallel giving me roughly a 2 Ohm load per speaker. So these babies are capable of getting 1100 amps RMS each but I don't push them that hard because I really don't need too and I want them to last. They hit harder than any sub I have ever bought and I am a solid NVX believer now. I also just bought the entry level NSW122s at a great deal, 2 for $99! If you are thinking about these, DO IT! You will not be disappointed one bit, and then you will likely not even consider anything else but NVX when it comes to serious performance and value.

Extremely Accurate

May 19, 2014

For a $200 subwoofer driver, this piece is one of the most accurate in it's price bracket. What does it do for you? It creates a listening pleasure like no other, whether you listen to classical, rock, pipe organ, or any other genre of music, this speaker delivers. It's quick response is well appreciated. I would or could go on and on about the different setups and what yielded the most listening pleasure, but that would be highly selective to my ears. Bottom line is I would recommend this speaker on any given day of the week.

Let me say this. WOW. I have 2 vc124. On a hifonics brx2000.1 At one ohm. Break in time was about 16 hours. At one ohm. Just low settings. Now that they r broke in. I set the gains and filters correct. I own a 96 jeep Cherokee. And the whole jeep shakes. I'm afraid I'm about to break my windows. I got them for 149. From sonic when they were on sale. So I got lucky. I love nvx. And from this point on. They r all that I will buy. By buddy has 2 jlw7s. And my system hits as hard as his. Just as good. But he paid almost 700 for each of his subs.

Amazing subwoofer

September 17, 2013

I purchase the NVX VCW12 D4 a few months ago. I installed the sub in a slightly larger ported box than what was recommended, and powered it with an AQ 2200d, at 2 ohms, approximately 1400-1600 WRMS, and....this sub gets down! This sub is very well built, attractive looking, and relatively heavy. The sound quality is equally as nice as the SPL. This is a very good subwoofer. You will not be disappointed if you decide to purchase this sub.
