Subwoofer Specifications

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.
1400 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.
350 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.
Single
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.
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).
18 - 1000 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".
88 dB
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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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.
Fiber woven radial
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.

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.

Amazing Product and Price.

July 13, 2007

I bought this sub awhile ago. When I recieved It I was amazed at the sound this thing can put out with such a small depth. Great Bang for your buck easy. I seen the same sub at one of my local car audio stores 8" version, and it was being sold for $149.99 so it's obvious this is a deal. Overall great sub, and I would highly reccomend it. Just put it behind a good amp and It'll show you what it can do.

Great Truck Sub

March 1, 2007

I purchased 2 of these subs and i am pushing 300 watts to each and for the money and the space saved behind the rear seat they are a very good buy.

Great Bass for Small Space....

February 2, 2009

These subs put out an excellent amount of bass considering it's a shallow mount sub. On a side-by-side comparison between the Kicker shallow mounts, these subs have a more boomier sound whereas Kicker's shallows have a tighter bass.

Another reason why I opted for Pioneer was because of the amount of watts it can handle. I'm running a 1200 watt amp to it and it takes it no problem. The only down fall is that it only has a 4ohm SVC. Considering the amount of watts these can handle, they should have at least made a 2ohm SVC.

Pioneer Premier subs are the best and most versatile on the market. I was a bit hesitant at first because I didnt think it would sound as a good as a reg. sub, but was I ever wrong. I have 2 of these bad boys in my pickup and they can hit hard. Most ppl dont expect pickups to sound like a car, but I have the best of both worlds. Thnx SonicElectronix!

Heavy Hitters

January 4, 2008

Got these bad boys hooked up to a 1200 watt amp by pioneer also and these things hit and i have my bass all the way down. Can't wait to hear these once they are broken in. Great subs for trucks really hit hard and dont take up space and for this price they are way worth it.Thxs SonicElectronix

exactly what you pay for.

I wanted these speakers because they wouldn't take up too much space, and wanted to go with pioneer all the way around. I drive a chevy trailblazer, I will say the in car sound is great, but you can barely hear the subs turn all the way up. Still a great buy, because i got exactly what i paid for.

July 25, 2007

I just bought two of these for my ext. cab truck and i was amazed. I originally wanted to get two polk momos because I was skeptical about their sound due to the the size. I settled for these because a space issue, and i am very satisfied. I still cant believe how hard these hit.
