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.
600 watts approx.
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.
300 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
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".
86.7 dB
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

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.
6.56"
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.
11.06"

Decent

February 19, 2011

This sub is pretty good. It is not as good as sam down there says. There are plenty of subs that can blow this sub out of the water without even trying. As far as loudness goes, Its better than average. The new w3 is too. As far as sound quality, defintely one of the best. Hits very nicely on the lows with a good box. If you want something that can beat your buddys system, this is defintely for you. If you want something that can shake the car next to you, go with w6 or w7s or any of the higher end subs from re, fi, rockford fausgate, orion, or kicker l7s. Unlike most subs though, this sub will last for a very long time. I have had this sub for around 5 or 6 years and it still pounds!

WOW

November 26, 2007

I have one of these hooked up to a JL A1200 amp, and this thing bumps. This is truly a great price for what it actually cost. If your looking for a good sub that really turns head, this is your sub. Just make sure you get the grill because i put a lacrosse bag in my turnk and when it hit the sub it tore the rim a bit.

JL W3's

March 3, 2007

These subs are by far the best on the market. The only thing that will beat these bad boys are the JL Audio W7's. I didnt feel like throughing down 800 dollars on two subs and then have to make a custom made box. These hit so hard and sound like you have double the watts running to them. I have a 400 watt mono amp, and these hit harder than my friends 2 mtx's with a 750watt amp! A MUST BUY
