Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Shallow Mount (Pioneer)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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.
500 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.
120 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).
30 - 1500 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.
3.5 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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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.
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
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.
0.15 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.
0.5 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.
0.15 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.
0.5 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.
2-1/2"
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.
7-1/4"
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.

Yes

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.

Great little sub for small compact install.

April 2, 2012

I recently installed one of these little subs into the jump seat location in my 92 s10. If you are looking for a small little sub to round out the low end of your small system, then this would be a great addition. The build of the sub is very solid, its small, and pretty stout. The push button terminals are very nice, and the overall look for this sub is very nice. In the right kind of enclosure this is a very warm sub and will add a decent amount of low end punch. It is very responsive, quick and tight sounding while still being pretty lightweight. I have this installed in a sealed enclosure so that might help. Im still in the break in stages right now, but Im happy with what I am hearing. I currently have the sub being driven off my MB Quarts FX4.70 channels 3 and 4 bridged and it puts out a great amount of sound. The sub is priced very reasonable for its application. However, if you are looking for something with massive output, this is not the sub for you. While still a very nice sub, its still an 8" sub, and you only have so much cone area. This would be a great fit for any small regular sized pickups, small 2 seat car, or if you plan to make a custom center console and just want some extra low end while saving space or looking for just a stealth install. While you can run this free air, I would not recommend it. If you are looking to do a small, simple, budget minded and hidden install, then this is the sub for you. Best of luck.

Pioneer Sub- Woofer

February 3, 2011

This product is very very good, I use it as a replacment for a parcel shelf speaker as a modification left me with only a shallow space in the parcel shelf. The speaker pumps out great quality sound on a stock sound system, better than the panasonic original deep sub. Would strongly recommend to anyone with space issues or looking for a high quality sub woofer. Also delivery to aus was very fast and very easy and cheaper than a domestic retailer.

October 18, 2007

I just installed a pair of these 8 inch subwoofers in my 2003 VW GTI. I was looking for a sub that I could install in a enclosure that would not take up more than .5 ft per woofer and mount behind the area where the factory 6.5 inch rear speaker was. The TS-SW841D`s are being power by a Pioneer Premier PRS-D1100M that is being driven into a 2 ohm load ( 600 watts RMS x-over at 80hz ). When I first heard these, the bass sounds great and is very powerful for an 8 inch subwoofer!! I didn`t think it would produce large ammounts of Quality bass from being mounted in such a small enclosure. But after listining to them with some of my standard "BASS" CD tracks, I was really surprised to see how low they went ( solid all the way down to 40hz before they started to roll off ).But for being such a shallow mount 8 inch sub this thing packs a lot of punch for it`s size, I would have to say close to a pair of standard 10`s. I definetly recomend this subwoofer if your limited space and Sonic Electronix has a great price on them.

Sounds great

June 15, 2011

I'm running one of these in my system which is sending 300 watts RMS bridged mono from an old school PG XS6600 amp. Sounds fantastic, though I warn you I'm an adult listener and have the levels set properly. Most kids don't know what their doing and set the levels too high. Rattled sheet metal at stop lights comes to mind. Yes this can rattle the sheet metal but I have my gains on the amp properly adjusted and the level is set on my subwoofer level control to the correct level. If your interested in setting your level correctly, you should adjust the level down until you can barely tell if it is present, this takes a well trained ear but in the end you'll find it more of a satifying listening experience. This is a great sub if you are interested in keeping your trunk space for groceries and want the sub to play strait into your cabin. If your planning on installing these in an enclosure in the truck with no direct access to the passenger cabin I would recommend going with two of them. The main thing is they can handle the high power and sound good too.

I purchased this unit to replace a 10" driver that took too much space in my Roadster. I was pleasantly surprised as to its performance in a .5 cubic foot sealed enclosure. It is well built with spring loaded terminals. Unexpected at this price point. The bass response is clear and tight, bare in mind this is no JL 10W7. However if you want to add low end response and space is an issue, this is a great buy.

Perfect little sub for me. It is very compact and if matched with the shallow mount pioneer box that is made for this sub it sounds great. I'm only pushing it with a 400 watt pioneer amp and the sound is pretty impressive in my SUV.

Great subs

March 24, 2014

I picked these up to strengthen the low end of my car setup (4x Infinity 60w rms 3-way 5.75in connected to an rms-matching Kenwood 4ch amp) and to boost the overall SQ. Have 2 of them hooked up to another Kenwood 120w per- channel 2ch amp. (4.2 surround sound, woo!) Currently they are mounted IB in the trunk, but will be moved into the rear deck once I have time to build the mount. Even in the trunk they fill out the low end with ease. Listening to a range of music (punk, celtic folk, dance/pop) everything is covered. It feels like I've got a bassist and drummer sitting behind. Absolutely love it. Had to pick up some 2x4s for a home project and the lumber fell on these subs. No damage, these things are resilient!

Pioneer-TS-SW841D review

December 12, 2011

I had this installed in my 2008 Civic SI with hopes it would be a straight swap for the stock sub but it wouldn't fit so in the end had it bolted from underneath with some MDF.
So performance of this sub is impressive for its size, used with a 200 watt amp I had lying around, with some deep bass that's just enough but not overpowering.
The best part is I still keep all my trunk space. I would defenitely recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade an existing 8" sub but concerned about maintaining trunk space.

rare shallow mount 8

December 8, 2008

Not many shallow 8's out there.

This is a great looking subwoofer, very shallow mounting and the best part is small box requirements.

Something most people don't know is that these work well in an IB install and thus don't require a sub box (as per the manual). They can be mounted in the rear deck of a car that has a trunk.

I tried them out as dedicated midbass' but these are definitely subs, they did not do a good job as midbass'.

As subs they do pretty good but they do have limited output since they have such limited x-max and low efficiency.

I do like that pioneer's manual has many different configurations and box sizes for these guys. I was only able to try IB.

Unless you require a small box and the shallowness i would suggest to look elsewhere. However for what they are there aren't many shallow 8's out there, they are an interesting choice for stealthy or small space installs. For what they are, they are great, but in general there are better 8's out there.

I didn't use them very long so can't speak on reliability, but one of the 2 I ordered did not work. fortunately it was an easy fix, the side have push terminal inputs and it just needed a little bit of soldering. They seem solidly built.

I actually looked at every single review on these on this website before I purchased them and I was just mildly pleased with them. They do the job for 2 8 inch subwoofers and add some bass but I wanted them to be much more powerful. I have a 2001 Tacoma double cab so unfortunately this is the best I can fit in without cutting metal. As for the website and customer service from sonic electronix, couldn't be happier.

Ordered the subwoofers from Sonicelectronix.com and received them within three days. I mounted them into the doors of my 07 mustang along with a Pioneer 300 watt amp and the difference from the factory speakers are tremendous. Great performance for such a small depth sub. If short on space as I was for the door sub, this is the way to go.

Pioneer 8

February 2, 2009

I would recommend this product for anyone trying to install a sub in a limited depth enclosure. I installed this sub into the center console of my jeep to save room and it sounds spectacular! No kidding. I love this product. Kudos to Pioneer for developing a shallow sub series like this.

Not only does this 8" hit hard as hell, but it can also reach those really low bass notes associated with rap and dance music. I was impressed with its range and crispness.

It is exceptionally durable. The sub's face is exposed right next to where the seatbelt latch is and sometimes hit that or the drivers seat. I have not seen any indications of faltering performance other than a few scratches that occurred due to installation placement. It is a tank!

Cost Effective Moderate Bass

March 24, 2009

Pleasing bass at moderate levels, but doesn't knock the mirrors off. Ample bass for moderate sound levels and most tastes.

Reasonable cost, seems to be well built with good materials. Long term reliability should be good, but remains unproven.

A good choice for small spaces and budget conscious buyers.

Ok, but not the result I wanted

July 16, 2010

I have this thing running free air in my rear deck, it was professionally installed but I am planning to remove it. It DEFINATELY needs time to break in to give any reasonable performance but when it does it causes some rattling. I have a feeling if I went to the trouble of fully deadening the rear deck (I do have some and I also have a MDF baffle that the installer put in) that I would probably get slightly better results but after my experience with this sub I plan to replace it with a 12" in the trunk. I would prefer to have it than not and sometimes sounds ok but it's probably better boxed.

This sub was a nice fit for my 2012 Jeep JKU. I added a little amp and now have a decent amount of bass.
