Audiobahn AW1000V 10" Subwoofer

Audiobahn's eye-catching High Excursion subwoofers blend striking cosmetics with rugged construction. The AW1000V 10" subwoofer features twin voice coils that can handle 600 RMS watts of total power with an efficient design that maximizes sound output. >A high-gloss cone manufactured from carbon composites resides at the heart of this sound machine. Supported by a tall foam surround and secured in a heavy-duty cast-aluminum basket, it rolls out lows that are fat and strong. A striking exterior of polished chrome and satin-finish aluminum complements the beefy design of the woofer. The six-pronged crown protects the woofer from accidental damage while allowing plenty of cone excursion.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
High Excursion
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.
1200 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.
600 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.
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).
23 - 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".
94.1 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.
13 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
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.
Carbon Composite
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.
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
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.25 cubic feet
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.
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.75 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.65 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.
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2.35 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"
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.
10-7/8"
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.

Banging Sub

November 7, 2011

I have ran this sub for a bit, just in a single cab truck with an old school amp, and it sounds great, and shakes the truck!! Worth the money as looking around for something to handle around 5-600 rms of power. Very effective in a ported enclosure with approx 1.5 cu ft of air space. I recommend this sub to any, and all. Worth every penny!! Running at 2ohms and sounds GREAT!!! SHIPPING WAS FAST AND GREAT PRICE!!!!

Worth every penny

February 1, 2012

Ive had 2 of these subwoofers for about 4 months and dont really have much to complain about. People have been very impressed on the performance. Im using an old Sony 1200watt amp (550RMS) at 2ohms per channel in a square vented box, approx. 1.5 cubic Feet of volume per sub.

Pros. They Look pretty cool, can handle power, they come in a cool wooden box that doubles for storage after install, they deliver clean bass, and I got them for a great price at Sonic.

Cons. The wiring terminals could be better, and you have to cut out some room for them to fit into your box.

Despite small design flaw, great sounding.

April 11, 2011

Despite the design flaw of the multi-connect lugs extending-out slightly into the circumference of the cutout circle and requiring minor modification to get the sub to seat... the driver does sound great.

I purchased this driver for my project to design a smaller sub enclosure to reside in the center of the rear passenger seat. I own a 2002 Ford SporTrac so almost no "hidden" room in the cabin. I love the sound of the Alpine Type-R 12" I already have in a 1.75 cu. ft. ported box tuned to 34Hz. But that box (which resided directly behind driver's seat) took up that whole seat, and also was a little fugly since I had to put an additional baffle on top of my box.

For this AudioBahn enclosure project the volume I had to work with is around .92-.94 cu.ft. (hard to know exact measurement due to top fiberglass rounded surface shapes).

I originally was gunning for 3" port tuned to 32Hz, but the port noise was way too much. Too much resistance at that long of a length of port tube. Did some quick modeling in WinISD and determined that if I adjusted the port tube length to a 40Hz tune it would drop the port air resistance down to acceptable parameters. I'm only bothering to mention all this so that if you plan on using this driver for some nice SPL/low-lows, be sure to design your box around a 4" port vs 3". Even though I've had to change the tuning to 40Hz, it works b!tch!n for music. Leaves a little to be desired for sub-bass specific (Bass-Tester) tracks.

January 20, 2012

Audiobahn aluminum woofers more capable than this high excursion. I run a comp grade zero gain mono 250 watt amp by Fosgate. I blew this woofer after three days of breaking in. It is over rated as when it hit high excursion from a true power amp, the coil fried.

This sub is awsome

January 3, 2012

The pros and cons for this sub is the sub hole cut out needs to be 1/16" to 3/16" bigger. I have 2 of these in a ported box and they sound good and low just for 2 Audiobahn 10's. They are louder than my 2 12" MTX 4500's. I have mine runung on a 350 watt kenwood amp works just fine.

Follow-up Review...

July 6, 2011

Ok... so I went back and corrected my port issues on my box by employing 4 tubes with 1.5" inner diameter and tuned their lengths to equate to a 32Hz tune. With this new port configuration I'm LOVING the way this sub sounds! I'm even considering going back and reconstructing my 12" Alpine Type-R box to similarly use 4 vent tubes like this one so that the vent air speed is nice and low. As it sits right now... the 12" setup is a little louder... but this AudioBahn 10" setup has a markedly better clarity. So now I'm curious to re-engineer the Type-R box with a similar treatment just to see if I gain more clarity from that driver as well. But I'm getting almost as much volume from .94 cu. ft. as I get out of 1.75 cu. ft. with the other Type-R setup!

Just one flaw...

April 6, 2011

I've been slowly building a fiberglass-top enclosure for this sub I purchased from sonic and there is one small design flaw. The multi-connect lugs for the wiring extend ever-so-slightly past the diameter of the cutout circle necessary for the sub to seat.

I had to perform surgery on my cutout opening using my Dremel Multi-Max oscillating-blade plunge bit to make a slight shaved-out square-edged notch dipping into cutout circle on both opposing sides in order to get this driver to fit. And it's not like the lip on the driver is very wide either.

Unfortunately I found this out AFTER I'd already glassed-up the top layer of my enclosure with the mounting-ring in it.

Needless to say.... I was SUPER-PISSED!

On a positive note...

The free-air testing I did with this sub was very positive though. Even at very low frequencies the amount of mechanical noise was low.

Now I'm just waiting for the final coat of paint to dry then I'll finally be mounting my driver into the box in the next couple of days.

Put a pair of these into 0.75 sealed enclosure and powered them with an Infinity 400 watt amp. They hit well, nice and tight, This is the second set of Audiobahn subs I've worked with, they are good quality subs that perform well and look good. It's a shame to put in a box without a window.
