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.
10"
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.
600 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.
300 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.
Single
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).
32 - 1,000 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".
88 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.
Dark Gray
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.
Rubber
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.
No
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.
No

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.
0.50 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.
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.
0.50 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.
0.65 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.
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.
0.65 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.
5.81"
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.
9.31"

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.

You cant beat a 30$ name brand sub. Its as simple as that. Subs a great and very efficient. I suggest one is a very low tuned ported enclosure and it will have more output than you could ever expect from a 30$ subwoofer. I love them! 2 sound even better in a sealed box

Solid Subs

August 18, 2009

You cant beat this sub for the money. I used 2 of these in separate 1.2cu.ft. ported enclosers. The bass is accurate and tight. And they dont skimp on the low end at all. They play rap as good as rock. Very impressive considering the price. And im running 600w rms from a MTX monoblock amp and they handle it very well.

I bought Not 1, but 6 of these dreams. I have 6 500 watt amps powering these beasts. I had to get 1 extra car batteries and a bigger alternator to keep them juiced up. I got one in each door mounted in custom things in my door. then I have two under the back seat. best bang for your buck if you ask me.

Clean

December 4, 2007

I have one of these in my ZX3. I was amazed at the cleanliness of this sub. This sub is very well rounded for the price. I had an MA Audio MA100Q. After swapping it out for this Clarion, I was amazed at the difference. The MA has a slightly harder punch but the Clarion is much cleaner. I have it powered by a 600 watt Power Acoustic amplifier and this sub takes the abuse and never so much as distorts. I listen to a variety of music and this sub can blast them all out loud and clean. There are better subs out there if you are looking for a hard hitting sub strictly for car rattling rap however this sub does shockingly well. The major draw back to this sub is that it uses speaker type connectors and not a screw type like most other subs. I liked this sub well enough that I ordered another one for my dad's F-150.

this is just a simple sub. You get what you pay for. Its not overly loud ... but at the same time, its not to quiet either. It does play pretty clean. I made a bigger box than what was asked for.. mainly to hit a little lower. All in all, i am not upset with my purchase.

GREAT

January 3, 2008

I have one and it sounds good. Hits hard and does its job. Had the 12 and was a little too loud, but the 10 is perfect for me. When played in the garage it is easily heard from the house and things have shaken. For the price it's a great deal. Played it for 12 hours straight on a road trip.

I Like it!

April 13, 2009

Have 2 of these and started of with a sealed box .7 cu ft each. I then added 1lb of poly stuffing per sub to improve low end but I still wasn't happy so I looked at the ported specs but I thought I could do better so I designed a 1.45 cu ft ported box tuned to 34HZ. These totally dominate now!!! The best $$ per sub I EVER spent!!! If you have the room and some box building knowledge you can really get some very powerful low end

Great Buy

December 17, 2008

When i bought this sub woofer i was skeptical because of the low price, but i bought it anyway. So i have 2 of these in my 01 hyundai sonata powered by a 1500 watt kicker amp and god have kindness on anyone who walks by my car when it is playing. They hit so hard and are amazingly clean. I say a great buy if you got the right amp to take them to their full potential, because trust me they will do it with ease.

Excellent sub for nice tight bass

April 14, 2009

I love this sub! It was exactly what was needed to add some thump to my 2007 honda fit. The fit's oem deck had absolutely no bass in it, even after I upgraded all 4 door speakers to pioneer 6.5's. So I decided to get this sub for some bass. I only added a 100watt audiobahn amp I had lying around and it does give it a nice thump.

Only $30?!

November 3, 2008

I know what you're thinking, Clarion subs for under $30!!! But yes they are under $30 and yes they are worth a lot more then that! I have 3 of these in a custom built box for my Mazda MPV running off a Power Acoustik amp. The subs are rated at 300W RMS and the amp is rated at 400W RMS and the subs take it all without any complaints. They don't hit to low but then again show me 10's that normally do. Definitely worth the price paid!!!

Good price, Great Bass

May 27, 2009

I bought two of these powered by a hitron HA-1000.1 Amp to put in my concorde. These subs destroy anything I've heard, hands down. My friend spent over 1.5g on a full system, and his stuff is quieter and not as clear. Not even in the same ballpark. At 33 bucks a pop, it doesn't get much better than this. My only problem was that they were too deep for the enclosure I bought, so I had to mount them inverted. Doesn't matter, just be sure you get the right measurements if your tight on space.

great subs for the price

December 15, 2009

I blew a JL 10in w3. So I got a pair of these for a temporary fix. Its been 6 months and I still have them. They pound in my car just the same as my jl's. That is when the trunk is closed inside my car, when my trunk is open my jl's sounded better. They carried the bass farther with better sound. But like I said, trunk closed inside they hit good, not a huge bass where your shaking everywhere but a good quality punch from these guys. Oh and I have them sealed in a small .60 cubit ft box each, stuffed with poly. Using a rocksford t-600 2ch. in conclusion, great subs for the price.
