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"
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
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.
250 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
250 watts
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
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
500 watts
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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Square/Rectangle
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
17-1/4"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
19-1/4"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
16-1/2"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Spring posts (banana clip ready)
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Charcoal
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.
Carpet

You get what you payed for.
This MA subwoofer is cheap. But it works.
If someone steals it out of your vehicle, you don't feel bad because it doesn't cost much.
recommend a 300 plus amplifier.

Great sub/box combo for the price, good definition and response. Bumps hard in the back of my corolla, doesn't need a overly powerful amp to run it either, yet my car still shakes!

this sub rocks!!

May 16, 2010

I bought this sub mainly for the price, and Im so glad I did. This box sounds awesome in my frontier king cab. For the price is a great buy, fits perfect in a small area, the design is cool and the sound is comparable to the expensive brands. Sonic has the best deals!

Great Sub for a Great Price!

November 30, 2009

I've used this sub for a few months now and this thing kicks pretty good. I have it set up with a Crunch amplifier to match the RMS on the sub and I have no problems turning this puppy really loud. I put dynamat in the trunk and my door so the bass coming from this box is very clean, no howling sounds like the ported subwoofer, just clean thumps and very smooth tones. It's how music should be heard. It sounds great with Rock; no problems with Hip-Hop, although you lose some lower tones; Drum n Bass sounds nice too and any other style would sound good as well. Don't think too much, just get it, I would get another one, but I need the extra trunk space this small sub provides. Only gripe is the screws get loose after a while, but that's pretty normal, just don't like how the sub sounds once they loosen up.

May 11, 2009

The title explains it all. With a properly matched amp and professional installiation the sub blew out in less than 3.5 hours. I bought this because I saw all of the 6 or so good reviews on this product and also because the price for me to get a box and get the sub installed that I already own would cost more than this sub. I also thought that since the box is made for the sub It would probably make the sub sound a little better than it actually was. Well that was NOT true at all. If you pay for a 300 dollar amp your going to get a 300 dollar quality amp but if you pay 80 dollars or 50 or whatever price it is at now for a sub and a box you get the 80 or 50 dollar sub and box. The box itself is actually a very nice box it is semi-compact but that does not sacrifice sound quality. However the speaker is absolutely terrible. I ended up replacing the speaker with an Alpine type E 12'' sub which can be bot on tught off Sonic. I will pick up the new speaker in the box and have it re-installed into my maxima. The title nails the point of the story right head. You get what you pay for. Also on a side note. Sonic, you have great prices and service but this has gotta go off your site. Hope this influences your decision to buy this product. Another side note it is MA Audio. I had never heard of them up until I bought this product. Stick with Alpine maybe some type R's if you have a little extra cash.

February 10, 2009

I bought one of these and it hits hard, shakes my mirrors and my parents can hear me from inside the house when i pull in. I'm gonna get 1 more and I'm running it on a 720W 2 channel amp and the sub is getting about 200W RMS.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a 12.

I have this in my wife's Nissan Sentra with a Phoenix Gold amp, it sounds really good! I just put some fiber fill in the box . She and I are very pleased with the outcome, has a good sound, not muddy or flat. We listen mostly to rock. For the price, you cant go wrong!

Awsome quality

February 21, 2008

I got this from Sonic with an amp combo and I am extremely impressed. This sub and box are very well built and I don't think anything comes close for the price. I have one of these in my 03' blazer an it really kicks. Sure, it wont shatter the windows next door but for the price it will leave you speechless. If you listen to rock music you wont want anything hitting harder cause it will just distort the music. It rattles my car and makes my back itch 2 seat rows away. It's also very clean bass, not just a thump. Overall I am very impressed by this product.

Big Bass for Little Space

December 5, 2007

Bought the Sonic package which includes this loaded enclosure, and it does exactly what I want it to do: sit in my trunk and pound away at my chest. The box itself is quality, looks quality, but doesn't cost anything at all. 250 watts rms is nothing to sneeze at either. This enclosure gets loud, even while underpowering it. Accurate, deep bass that keeps people looking at me like I have a huge system makes this box a steal.

May 10, 2010

I got this sub for my friend and its paired with a MB quart amp and let me tell you this, it makes my 4 10inch Alpine type R's look and sound like little 3 1/2s speakers. And each sub is getting 1000 watts. Its an amazing buy, and to all of the people who gave it a bad review saying you get what you pay for, your actually getting a $50 jl and all the other bank breaking subs for that. Best brand ever made

Had this in my grand marquis and it bumped. If you are looking to add some bass to your car you can't beat it. It would work better in a smaller trunk as it was not nearly as loud in my trunk as in my friend's smaller trunk. Lasted about 2 years for me with the gain turned all the way up.
