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

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.
0.85 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.
1.25 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.
1.75 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.
1.25 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.
1.50 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.
2.00 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.
6.90"
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.
11.10"

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.
35 Hz
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.
34.6 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.
0.59
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.
0.62
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.

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.

February 7, 2015

I recently purchased a new car and wanted to upgrade the stereo system. The service reps here , not only answered questions about the product I purchased here, but also on products that I purchased elsewhere. I purchased the Pioneer TS-W3003D4 12"subwoofers. As claimed by everyone I talked to , they are the best bang for your buck , WITHOUT a DOUBT !

Pioneer says it all !! Top quality sub , very efficient !!

March 18, 2015

I put this sub into a 1 sq. ft. belva sealed box . I only have room for 1 in my little Fiat 500 . I have it running on a Boss CXX 2705 5 channel amp with the gain set at about 45% at 2 ohms and it slams . I have had this sub for less then 48 hours so it is not even close to being broke in yet .. I can't wait until it is broke in so I can get its full potential . It already puts the boom into Sonic Boom !! The price is right and it out performs many high priced subs . It is well built and worth at least twice what I paid for it . Buy one you won't be dissapointed . I couldn't even imagine what two of these would sound like ? I think your ears would bleed !!

Amazing subwoofers

December 8, 2014

I purchased two of these subs to replace my single pioneer ts-w3002d2 with hopes of having louder and clearer bass reproduction without having to upgrade electricals(my cars year makes it expensive to upgrade) and i was definately pleased. I have them both wired at 2 ohms to my pioneer amp pushing the 600 Rms to both and they hit hard, loud and clear. I would highly recommend these subs to anyone wanting inexpensive, high quality sound without needing a high powered amp.

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.

Great sounding woofer

December 15, 2014

Set this woofer up at 2 ohms in a ported Belva box with an SSL 1500 watt mono amp. The woofer sounds amazing with very smooth and deep bass. Very efficient woofer as the amp's gain and bass boost are set at 1/4 . Definitely would recommend.

UNDERRATED & UNDERESTIMATED!!!!!!!!!!!

April 18, 2015

Just recently posted a review about the TS-W3003D4 and let me tell U...... UNDERESTIMATED & UNDERRATED TO THE FULLEST EXENT. I had 3 TS-W310S4 in a sealed box ran off my Hifonics BRX1100.1.... Yesterday was experiment day..... I bought a 5 cubic feet box tuned to 34Hz from MobileSoundWorks.com last year and its just been sittin' there. Originally for 2 Sundown Audio ZV4s, I decided to test this monstrosity of a subwoofer enclosure out with just 2 of the 4 TS-W3003D4s I recently just purchased and my system sounds like it drunk some electrical tea or something because the bass did a 360. PORTS RULE THE WORLD & personally I think this box is tuned to 33.5Hz because any frequency between 36Hz & 28Hz is a $LAMMER!!!!! ONCE AGAIN, DO NOT HESITATE TO PURCHASE A COUPLE OF THESE SUBS. My box is a cube too big and my subs are poundin' the f**KK out of this box with no problem. They dont over extend themselves or get real hot in this box either. U will loose the higher notes but, I LIKE LOW BASS SO, WHO GIVES ANY TYPE OF A F**KK!!!!!!! "IF IT DON'T SHAKE THE CAR OR MOVE AIR THEN, I DON'T WON'T 'EM!!!!" PIONEER FOR THE WIN, SONICELECTRONIX FOR THE VICTORY!!!!

roof flex

February 16, 2015

I bought three of these while they were on sale for 79.98 and I looked at every sub on this site reading reviews comparing numbers and prices and I couldn't be happier they look really clean and strong I bought a triple sealed box from sonic that was angled on the out side speakers and it was a gamble without depth dementions and sure enough they didn't fit so after having to stare at them for a week a three slot q bomb pro vented box came from carid and I was excited till my speakers didn't fit in because of the rino liner so after the jig saw fixed my holes they were in and wow I couldn't have smiled any harder they bang!!!! Plain and simple they flex my Durango's roof no problem bass level on head unit at one out of six and they bang when you get the speakers the come with all the cubic ft recommendations for every type of box my vented is 1.85 they say 1.5 for optimal sound and 2.0 for deep but yes I'm running 3 amps at 2000 max 8 ohm set up and they are intense some songs with out the windows cracked blow my ears for now till they get use to it but I promise you for the money you will not be disappointed at all I wish I could put a pic on here everyone says they look amazing and say just by looking that it has to be loud and it is

Trust me I know about cars sounding and I searched for a while for a Sub like this one! This is the one you need! I cant imagine 2 like these :O. And it does not smell burning the first time you try it (still dont put it on max vol the first 5-10min LOL)

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.

This sub is litterly breath taking .

March 23, 2015

When I first got this sub I wired at 2 ohms and with the volume at 24 out of 63 and the gain set at 45% the sound was amazing but the amp kept kicking out and got pretty hot . I checked the ohms and wired at 2 ohms ,it was actually reading 1.5 ohms and my amp was not 1 ohm stable . I rewired it to run at 8 ohms ( which was actually running at about 6.6 ohms ) and even though I am pushing about 450 watts to a 600 watt rms 12" sub I just set the gain at about 75% and played with my head unit settings and this Pioneer TS-3004D$ sub pumps out plenty of sound hitting he lows hard ,, distortion free and extremely loud !! If you get two of these subs and wire them at 2 ohms each , wired in parallel you will be able to run these at about 3ohms . I thought about sending this back and getting a dual 2 ohm sub but this one sounds so great I am just going to keep it and wait till it blows before I replace it . Sonic rocks and this is not a beginner sub , it is a high grade sub at a fantastic price ! I will buy from Sonic for all my car audio needs in the future .

February 19, 2015

After researching subs I put these on my wish list. Purchased these recently and I am 100% satisfied. I live in a cold climate and was worried about the effects to the equipment. No problems with the sound at all. A lot of bang for the buck!! Running them in a sealed box with a Hifonics 1200 watt amp and they take it and smile. Shipped on time and would definitely recommend this product. Thanks Sonic

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.

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.

Great subs at an unbeatable price

March 25, 2014

When I got these, they were on sale for one heck of a value, so I figured I would buy them. To start, I have never dealt with audio before but my friends all had. When I told them I was going to buy some subs, put them together, and power them indoors with some server power supplies they laughed and tried to tell me all sorts of things. I'm powering these with a Hifonics Brutus BRX 1200.1 (great amp) and that's powered by two 750 watt server power supplies plugged into the wall. I live in an apartment complex and am scared to turn these all the way up, but they pound hard! All my friends are thoroughly impressed with the setup I have. I recommend these subs!

Have had them for about a week

July 10, 2015

I've only had these subs for about a week but I'm loving the quality of the sound. Remember, they are 4 ohms per voice coil so you can either do a parallel setup for 2 ohms, series for 8 ohms or a mixture of both for 4 ohms which is what I did. Installation was straight forward but the box became super heavy once the subs were installed because of the huge magnets but thats a good thing! Will update if they fail or anything.

These are very nice subs, I've waited over a year to post a review just to make sure they were`nt a joke. Well a year later they a still strong! I got them when they were $79.99 with only about ten reviews. I've had them hooked up to a SPL1-3400D @ 1 ohm. To be realistic that's about 750 RMS watts each, any other subs would have blown, they are in a ported box with 2.0 cu.ft. each sub. These shake my hair, nostrils, and vocal cords INVOLUNTARILY! My father-inlaw got beside me one day at a red light and got pissed! (Enough said!)

April 22, 2015

Read all the great reviews and bit the bullet on a single sub in sealed enclosure (wanted fast/accurate bass). First one I received blew the whole spider assembly within minutes. Was played at very low volumes and was just checking the box for any leaks when it popped. At that point I almost gave up on this cheap sub and was about to go with a JL but it was a free exchange and decided to give it one more shot. Couldn't be more glad that I didn't give up on it! Running an Alpine PDX-V9 running 523 watts RMS (per the test card) and at just half gain this thing hits hard and is exactly what I was looking for. Has been running strong now for the past ~3 months. My goal was SQ inside the car, not annoying (to me) rattles which can be heard miles away and this fit the bill. Two of these in a proper spec'd ported box with good power should be more than enough for all but the most extreme bass heads.

Great budget subs, they lack on midbass, and do NOT hold true 600 watts rms

November 14, 2014

I started out with the old Premier Champ subs back in 2007, and since then I have talked up Pioneer subs. These really are good subs for shaking your vehicle, and they produce some very good lows in a proper box. They do not, however handle power that well. I originally had them (2) wired 4-ohms to a 600watt rms amp, so they were probably sharing 400 watts. No issues whatsoever, but they could have been louder (scored 137.4Db in a sealed box) so I bought a 1500 watt RMS 1ohm amp and wired them 1 ohm and holy jesus they were crazy loud, but only for a few seconds before things started to smell. I never clipped these subs, I now have them wired 4-ohm to the 1.5k amp so they should be getting 600 watts, but even then they start to smell after a good 15 minutes of hard use. Even pioneer recommends using an amp lower than the subs RMS rating. But still, 137.4 Db is nothing to be ashamed of when you are talking about $80 subwoofers. Great product. Great durability (my old premiers lasted 6 years of hard abuse on my 600 watt amp before 1 popped a VC feed wire. Now I use them for my out-door tower speakers.) I definitely recommend these for someone who want good quality low bass on a budget.

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.

I've had many woofers over the years from entry level to competition. I wanted some punch in my camry, read the reviews and thought this woofer would give me just enough bass to feel the sound. paired this with the sony ZZR3301 pushing 600 rms in a ported belva box that i got all from this site, and holy SH*T! way more bass than i could have ever expected! my rear window flexes!!! all i hear is crisp clean hard hitting bass! my buddy who installed it said the sub can even handle more than the 600 rms but this system is perfect beats down the block! I am more than happy with the product and fast shipping from sonic! HIGHLY recommend this woofer especially for the price, hits harder than my old W3 fro a fraction of the price!! AMAZING woofer

I recently purchase a pair of these champion pro 12's. I am going to run them with a pioneer GM-D9601 in a sealed box. I wanted to run them at 2ohms each giving the amp an overall 1 ohm load. Is this the best way to optimize the power of the amp ? And if so, what is the proper way to wire the subs ? do I run loops from voice coil to voice coil on each sub and use 2 channels on the amp, or do I cross terminals from sub to sub and run just one channel on the amp ? the manual on the amp is VERY unclear.

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;

what is the difference between the pioneer ts-w310d4 and the pioneer ts-w3003d4 sub ?
ken s on Jan 1, 2015
Best Answer: Enter an anUpgraded to these subwoofers from the TS-W310D4 (400W rms) and these are rated at 600W rms, so that's an increase of 50% rated power.
These subs are dual 4 ohm, so each can be wired to 2ohm and 2 of these subs can be run at 1ohm if you have a 1ohm stable amp, which is how I run it.
I did a direct comparison of 1x TS-W310D4 vs TS-W3003D4 and there is an increase in output. Can't say that it is 50% more, but the bass is deeper and slams harder, really.
I recommend this subwooferswer to this question.

Power Acoustik BAMF-20001D
Best Answer: People two or three subs because the amp WILL push two or three. I have the same 2000 BAMF1 amp pushing two L7 10s. They are 800RMS a piece. When talking about amps you can never really have two much I'd prefer to have an amp rated for more power so you can keep the gain kinda low and still push the sub to its potential, but that's just me. If your just pushing that pioneer go with this amp, it will do justice. If you plan on two subs or more. I would go with the 40001D BAMF, because that has a bridge option and it's not to much more expensive than the 2000 BAMF. More bang for the buck is always better. And that 4000 watt pounds man.

i was told that i shouldnt run one of these alone? because that way they are set up they do better as a pair. i was hoping to just buy one to replace the sub i already have. have you heard any thing about this?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2014
Best Answer: If the amp you are using is running the same RMS as the subs at the lowest ohm that the amp accepts. Matching the single subs ohms. Then yes this sub will be a great replacement even as one. Depending on your preference of bass tones will be a huge factor in this subs performance in a sealed or ported. Ported will be louder with less watts. But in my opinion the sealed box will give a deeper cleaner bass. . So if your amp is stable at 2 ohms then one of these speakers ran parallel will be perfect. But if your amp is stable at 1 ohm then yes 2 speakers is the way to go. Let's say your amp is stable at 1 ohm 1000 watts. If you run 1 speaker at 2 ohms you will only be getting half the power out of your amp. Might add well run two in that scenario

Best Answer: No. It won't ruin anything as long as it is properly grounded and everything is wired correct. As far as power is concerned, you may have to run a capacitor or do a big 3 upgrade or both if you wish to stop dimming lights and to just make your electrical system work more efficiently.

Can I wire two of these Subs to a monoblock amp at 2ohms and it be safe and stable?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
Best Answer: No, there are only 2 ways that 2 4ohm speakers can be wired. 4ohm or 2ohm load is your only wiring options. I have 1 12" of this sub wired at 2ohms to my mono amp, pushing a constant 600rms and it beats pretty good. Only thing is I'm starting to smell fried wires after a while and I've had this speaker for a little over a year. for the price I didn't expect it to last too long but it's holding up very well. I would imagine that two of these speakers hooked up at 2 ohms would be awesome.

are these pioneer w3003d4 12 inch subs better than a jl audio 12 w3 ?
A shopper on May 20, 2015
Best Answer: I can tell you that these Pioneer subs are extemely strong and a tremendous value for the money. To be honest, I find it hard to imagine that the JL Audio could be worth the extra $300 or $400. The Pioneers pound as hard and clear as 99% of all subs in my opinion. I have 2 of the Pioneer TS-W3003D4 subs in an enclosure powered by the smallest amp Belva makes....the 2000 series......And it is astounding. It sounds like a $3,000 system. I like it so much that I am buying the same combo for my second vehicle! The Pioneer Champion Pro speakers are a little more costly and have a wider range of bass if you feel the need to shake your car and the one next to you though. I hope this helps!

Best Answer: The subs can handle the power. Keep them @ 1 ohm. Make shure your gain is set properly and turn the bass boost OFF. Use the bass remote for better control. If you are using a ported box, set the phase to reverses if the ports are away from you. If you are using a sealed box, set the phase to reverse if the woofers are facing the front of your car. Believe it or not, you will burn the coils faster in 4 ohms. Good luck.

Will this be safe to power with a kenwood 8105D? Will this be an upgrade from the kicker compR? Should I spend the extra money for the TS-W3003D4 instead?

Best Answer: If you have the few extra dollars, get the tsw3003d4. It will take the 500 rms all day and you will not need to worry about burning it. Plus with that type of power you can go ported and move the speaker good. ....What I have learned in what I call the made in china age... it's not the 90s anymore. So make sure the speaker has I'd say 10 to 20 percent higher rms rating then the amps rms rating unless you don't mind burning out subs left and right

what is the best amp to run 2 of these subbs?
Zack C on Apr 9, 2015
Best Answer: Try to find an amp that puts out true 1,000 watts at 1 ohm, then wire the subs accordingly. Dont forget the warm-up phase. I ran mine at 4 ohms for a couple weeks to warm them up, then switched to 1 ohm wiring. My amp was a hifonics 1500 watt amp at the time. It was a little too much for the subs.

Best Answer: The brz 2400 is to powerful for the subs your looking at, the subs are 600watts rms each that's 1200watts rms total. the brz2400.1 is 2400rms rms. That's 2times the amount the subs need to move. Your looking for a 1200.1 amp. Your subs wire 1ohm or 4ohm. If you wire the subs to 1ohm and get a 1200.1(RMS) amp you'll be fine. Or if you wire the subs to 4ohm and get the brz2400.1 you'll be fine. (The second option is a waste of money).

A shopper on Dec 19, 2014
Best Answer: Well. It freakin pounds in my GMC Acadia. I mean Idk if it's the most powerful bass (I'm not the master of bass's) but it does a hell of a job on a full size suv

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.
