Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
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.
900 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.
450 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.
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).
24 - 100 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".
86.5 dB
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.

Square
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Silver
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.
SoloKön
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
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
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.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
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.
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.
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.
6"
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.
9.25"
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.
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.
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.
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.
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

BEST 10 INCH SUBWOOFER.!

June 25, 2009

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST 10 INCH SUBWOOFERS I HAVE HEARD.! I HAVE TWO OF THEM IN MY TAHOE WITH A CUSTOM ENCLOSURE AND A 500X1 RMS HIFONICS AMPLIFIER AND A SOUNSTREAM SOUND PROCESSOR AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU THIS SLAMS! AT FIRST I ONLY BOUGHT ONE AND WHEN I TOOK IT TO BE INSTALLED THEY RECOMMENDED ME TO GET TWO BEFORE I BLEW ONE. I THOUGHT ONE WAS GOOD ONCE THE SECOND CAME THROUGH I JUST COULDNT BELIEVE THEY WERE TENS. WHEN I SHOWED MY FRIENDS THE SYSTEM I WOULD TELL THEM TO GET IN THE TRUCK AND ASK THEM WHAT DO YOU THINK I HAVE.? THEY WOULD ALL SAY 2 12S 2 15S AND I WOULD SHOW THEM THAT ONLY 2 10S. AFTER ALL I AM HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE I WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING THEM THEY BANG JUST HOOK THEM UP RIGHT AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED.!

been a long trip to here

June 15, 2009

I have had systems for 10 years now, and must say, i have never heard a 10 like this, i have a newer style 2 door blazer and this thing slams. Has fairly good lows (better than any other ten though)but hits everywhere else, no matter what type of music. I have it in a custom vented box, with over 600 watts rms and its finally on the verge of being fried after almost 2 years. its making some noises but still keeps going. have another one coming. i have had stereos hitting hight 140db's , this isn't that loud, but absolutely amazing for 1 ten. prob high 130's and that means it is. i will never ever own any type of sub ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For this price, if you are reading this, quit, and add to cart immediatly. you will not be dissapointed. i've also tried it on 3 different amps, from 200rms to what i'm using now at 600+rms, and has sounded great on all of them, just clearer on a bigger amp. if it sounds sluggish to you, put more power to it, and enjoy!!

Kicker is the best

February 25, 2009

This little sub is the loudest, cleanest sub I\'ve heard in it\'s price range. It kicks harder and louder and cleaner than dual 12\" Pioneer subs, or single 12s. This bad boy can handle wattage like no other. RMS is at 450, but I\'m feeding it over 500 RMS and it bumps perfect. It was tough to pair it up with an amp though, but well worth the search. I WILL buy again, and you should too.

Tight Clean Bass

January 11, 2007

My friend has 2 of these in the back of his Dodge Ram 1500 under the rear seats and I dont like to sit in the back anymore because when I get out I am not able to feel much from my waist to my knees. He also cant use any of his mirrors because they shake so badly. Awsome subs at a great price from one the bests, Kicker!
