Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Champion PRO (Pioneer)
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.
2000 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
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).
20 - 80 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".
96 dB
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) 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.
Elastic Polymer
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.
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.

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.

Impressive for the money !

October 28, 2014

I bought two of these for my Ford ranger extra cab, and built a ported box five cubic feet net, not including port volume. Each sub has its own port tuned to 33hz and 16 sq in port area. I have a Massive Audio N4 loaded to 1 ohm, which is putting out 1444 watts at 13.5 volts, with box rise the subs won't get that much power. About a month of playing they are starting to sound better now that that dual spiders are breaking in. Needless to say the bass is incredible ! Flexing the back of the cab quite a bit. These pioneer subs "suspension" is in my opinion more durable than the new alpine type r sub which has a single spider. My last type r spider separated from the cone completely and then failed. Sorry alpine.

Best 80 bucks I've spent..

October 14, 2014

I had a rockford fosgate p3 prior to this sub in a sealed box and that sub was really great until one of the voice coils went bad for the second time and my warranty is gone so I decided to try something different. I wanted the previous version cause I heard they were good but saw this one and took a chance with pioneer. This subwoofer sounds amazing it hit lows very well and gets loudddd sealed so I couldn't imagine ported in the correct box. I'd definitely get two if I was into dual sub setups but this gets the job done! Exceeds expectations better than the p3 in my opinion especially for the price.

October 14, 2014

Just wow. Guys, take my advise, I've done hours of research on what to buy and I FINALLY decided to buy this one. I have it hooked it up to a HiFonics 1100 watt Super Class D amp (pushing it at 700 rms) and I cant be happier!!! I drive an 09 Chevy Impala LT and it rocks the house:) I've had it in for about one week as of Oct. 14-14 and I have had ZERO issues so far. Please, if your looking for the thump of your life, then BUY THIS SUB YOU WONT REGRET IT! One more thing... THANK YOU SONIC AND PIONEER!

serious bang for your buck

September 19, 2014

I have always stuck to high end brands for car audio, so with me saying that I went out on a limb buying these. I was skeptical about the frequency response maxing out at 80hz, but don't worry about it. These pioneers will knock your head off and keep getting great reviews. I couldn't be happier with these subs, and so would you. I hooked two of these up in a 2010 jeep wrangler unlimited. I used a hifonics brutus 1200 amp, wired everything to 1ohm, sealed box slightly smaller than maximum volume recommendations. When I tell you these things sound like some jl audio 12w7s, I mean just that.

Nostril Vibration

July 6, 2014

I blew my Memphis MClass 12 running 300 watts at 4 ohms with an Alpine MVR500 ( great amp). This website had THE BEST price on this Pioneer sub after doing a week of homework. You will not find another sub within $200 of this one that as high a sensitivity (96 bd) & this much Xmax (13mm). I put this into my same sealed box (1.25 sq ft) & I bangs!! It's super clean but still makes your nostrils vibrate, which the Memphis never did. I'm running it @ 2 ohm @ 540 rms. Next I will be putting in a larger ported box. Nobody around here believes it's only 1 12 my RSX. I nearly bought a sundown audio 12, but after much homework comparing the specs, this was the sub for me & I'm beyond impressed!!! You won't be disappointed with this sub or with Sonicelectronix! They got it here in 2 days as promised.

Sweet sub

June 19, 2014

I bought two of these subs to go with my 1200w rms hifonics amp, and what can I say other than that they are amazing for the price. They make my whole car shake and have not heard any distortion or problems with the subs. The only issue is that I received one of them damaged and had to send it back. But, I recommend anyone that does not want to spend $250 for a sub that has the same performance to get this sub because it is a high quality product.

Pros: great price, very good response, handles 600w rms, and very versital in different type and sized enclosures. Cons: none I have three of these beasts in a ported enclosure each getting 500w rms and let me tell you they pound. Roof, windshield, and doors flex. Literally looks like my car's a chest and it's breathing. Lil tip is to get sound deadener

These are awesome!

May 9, 2014

I upgraded from 2 ts-w310d4s to a pair of these. The 310s are a great sub for getting loud with minimal power required. I A/B swapped the 310s to these with the same box/ amp. The 3003s obviously draw a little harder on electrical, but without being broke-in yet, they are as loud as the 310s that have over 150 hours on them. They move the windshield a bit more than the 310s already, after a very short 4-hour break-in. The build quality is literally "impressive". You would be hard-pressed to find build quality like this under $120-150. I have seen $200-plus subs that aren't built this nice. They sound smooth and have a nice curve with a moderate-sized enclosure. These AND the 310s are excellent products for their price. I recommend these if you have over 500W of clamped, daily power per sub, but if you have under 500W a sub, def go with the 310s. Also go with the 310s if you have a puny electrical system, and don't see yourself upgrading it, as the 3003s will draw a considerable amount. The 310s will shine under 500W per sub.

had the best reviews for sub woofers in 2014 and the specs are the highest of any other sub woofer I compared it too. Look at the RMS watts and the sensativity for this sub compared to any other.

Austin M on Aug 24, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Austin,

Absolutely. There is nothing suggesting you can't. As a matter of fact, Pioneer's Recommended Enclosure [Ported] volume is 1.25 cu. ft per Sub.

this sub highest frequency is rated at 80hz that seems kinda low when compared to other sub woofers. Will this sub be able to hit all ranges of bass high and low? I ask because when i look at other subs in the same category they're rated around 200hz. Why is that? Thanks
austgreen on Oct 27, 2014
Best Answer: Hey bro, I was concerned about the same thing when I was looking into this subwoofer but no need. Really what would matter the most is the box, I just have a universal ported box I bought a long time ago and I have been very happy with the speaker. I have a frequency maker app on my phone and the sub plays 100hz just fine as well as low 20hz frequencies. I have the sub hooked up to a pioneer mono amp running 600 watts at a 2ohm load.

What sealed box size does the manufacturer recommend for this speaker, and would this speaker perform well in a properly sized sealed box?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

According to the manufacture;
Sealed: 1.25 ft^3
Ported: 1.50 ft^3
[PER chamber/subwoofer]

These subs will absolute perform well in its intended environment. Assuming you understand the sound you will accomplish by going with a Sealed Enclosure, a pair of these will provide a desirable SQ setup.

Jason C on Sep 24, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Jason,

Just about all the enclosures we carry are Pre-Fab Universal enclosures, and NOT model specific; so be prepared to - at most - widen the opening. Luckily, the Atrend 12DQV is looking like a perfect fit, based on the specifications from both Pioneer and Atrend;
