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.
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.
700 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.
50-500 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).
25 - 200 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".
91 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.
13.5 mm
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.
Polypropylene
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.
Butyl Rubber
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.
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.
6-1/4"
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.
10-15/16"

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.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

September 8, 2010

I plugged two of the four subs I bought to a MMATS 3500.1 and wasn't to pleased. Then they started to loosen up and slam!!! I have them in a 4.0cuft ported box and couldn't believe a sub this cheap could produce this type of sound. Would and might buy these for myself as I bought these to put in my friends car. The amp puts out 2700 real watts at 1 ohm and they took it. I have experience with the jl audio 10w7(2) an audioque 12" hdc and a pierce audio products wmd. I would take these 2 subs over those 3 I just mentioned but the wmd2 has more SPL. I recommend these to everyone! One of the reviews I read about the sub said this compares to a 12w6v2 and it didn't lie.

Great Sub

September 24, 2010

Just got this sub last week and its definitely awesome. Easily compares to the type r like the guy mentioned down below. The difference between the type r and this sub is, the fact that this sub blows the type r away when it comes to the lows. I only have one of these subs running off of my 600 rms alpine amp (mrp-m650) and it is ported tuned to 30 hz and it shakes the crap out of my seats. Especially on the song "Get Low" by lil jon. For 40 bucks, this sub is an absolute steal! Also already mentioned by the guy below, this sub needs at least 400 rms. Even at the 400 rms it laughs at you and begs for more. Handles 600 rms just fine. Sonic has it mislabeled for 350 rms. The manual says 500. Well anyways, great subwoofer. Great price. Get it!

Great deal and greater sub

September 24, 2010

Recently brought two of these from here and I am more than satisfied. Right now the price for these is unbelievable at $39.99 as the sub is worth over $100. Get them now while they are this cheap. This sub is well constructed and attractive too. It pounds in either a vented or sealed box. I listen to pop, rock, hip-hop, and RnB music and it sounds good at which either. This is a true SQ sub that can also pound your chest much like the type r which this Rsd12d compares favorably too. This is a 5* sub and easily the best deal on such a sub as you could have found this year. I own RE, Alpine, Hifonics, and Powerbass subs. This Phoenix Gold belongs with them. Also I recommend giving this sub between 400-500 watts. It doesn't like anything less.

Holy Cow!!

October 17, 2010

At 39.99 a piece this is one heck of a bargain. I first had the subs(2) in a 1.25 cu ft sealed box each and they hit pretty good with 1000 RMS watts. Not a lot of SPL but more sq but they hit the lows with authority with very little distortion. That was my setup for about 3 weeks. I recently had a 2 cu ft per sub vented (shared chamber) box tuned at 32hz built and wow is not a good enough word to describe the sound. Let me put it this way I had a previous system worth about 3 grand and the lows are on the same level but not as deep (w7s). At high volumes there's a slight hint of distortion but these subs just keep banging. Great job PG! Thanks Sonic!!!
