Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Anarchy (Planet Audio)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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.
1200 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
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".
87 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.
10 mm
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)
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Single Stacked

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.

Sealed
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.
5-3/16"
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.
7"

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.
3.083 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.
.61
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.
.66
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.

BIG BANG for the buck!!!

January 18, 2015

I bought this sub to replace the blown stock woofer in my 01 Suburban. I took the outer cardboard ring off the stock woofer and put it under the AC8D so the magnet did not bottom out in the stock enclosure. I am truly shocked how good this thing sounds. I would recommend this to anyone looking for some cheap bang. Clear deep and tight bass, no muddy sound at all. If you were like me and debated over so many options....This is it!!!!

1600 Watts?

February 16, 2015

The sound is crisp, and the range is incredible! I had just replaced all the speakers and feel like I now have a rolling concert hall. However, the only complaint is that I thought 1600 watts would be much louder. But, hey! I only have less than $400 in the entire system, and I've got blue tooth connectivity, iPod connection, etc. overall, this is amazing!

I just purchased a pair of these subs and put them in a sealed box w a little poly fill in and they sound GREAT!!!!!. You really can't beat the price on these. They are being pushed by a Hifonics Brutus 1200 watt amp and are bridged. So far so good. Works great in a smaller car. Mine is a VW Karman Ghia.

April 23, 2015

I bought 8 of these and have them in a custom built 5.5 cubic foot box tuned at 21 hertz. These subs are great for the price. I have all them running at 0.25 ohms on 5k plus daily. I'm burping anywhere from 148 to my highest the other day of 151.3 dB on the dash sealed all the way up. I'm going to be ordering 4 more and doing another build. Love these subs

I love these little guys. I have two in a custom box I built for my truck with a 1000 Watt Punch amp driving them and they hit harder than I would have believed. I wasn't expecting much for the price but I was very pleasantly surprised by their sound. I think they are actually sounding even better now that I have a few hours on them. Nice looking speaker, too, well worth the crazy low price.

Absolutely great little 600W 8" Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer! These little guys hit! I can only hope they continue to do so!!! Replaced 2 old ones in my Tahoe and couldn't be happier. Drove my truck all week just listening to the beats!! Back to driving my car this week and seriously missing them! I'm picking 5 on the Durability below, but I seriously have no idea if that's true... It's only been a week.

Best Answer: It should fit no problem but be careful connecting it to a decent amp.. I blew 2 of them. I'd go with a better quality sub from Sonic Electronic and save yourself time and money in the long run.

what is a cheap good amp for this sub ?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

We suggest the Planet Audio AC1500.1M. Both the sub and the amp provide some very ambitious figures, so do Not expect them. The point here is, however, to match more specific figures.
