Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
XFL (American Bass)
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.
1000 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
3"
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).
15 - 250 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".
89.6 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.
19 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.
Non-Pressed Paper
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.
Foam
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Triple Stacked
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
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.
7.6"
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.
11.22"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No

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.
33.6 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.
31.9 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.
0.437
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.
0.497
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.

Explosive Bass!!!!

November 25, 2014

This woofer Awesome with a capital A! After a good period
of break in I was able to hit a 130db With a pair running off
A Soundstream rub. 2500D with ease. Great sub with a good
Clean sound and very responsive. Dont put a sissy amp on it
because it is hungry and will handle all you can throw at it just
as long as it is clean. The size alone will amaze you at nearly 40
Pounds. Sonics expedited service only added to the pleasure.

OUCH!

September 30, 2015

I researched 12inch subs for 6 months before buying and have had 2 of these bad boys running off of a Hifonics Elite BRE2500.1D for about a year now in a custom tuned double wall box I built myself. I never review things unless they really suck or really rock. These ROCK! Seriously! They are more than I need. I CAN NOT listen at full volume for longer than a few minutes on bass heavy songs. They hurt my ears and I am a life long "Bass Head" (I'm 45 yo). I keep a box of earplugs in the van and insist people wear them when I show off. Its that loud. The only SPL meter I've had access to maxes at 145db and it pegged the meter. I've clamp tested the AMP and its putting out 2560 watts RMS so about 1250 watts per sub. Before you call BS let me tell you that I'm a scientific engineer and I know what I'm doing. I have older models with the big spring loaded connectors and they were the weak link The little plastic piece that mounts the connectors broke when I was installing them. With the new models having soldered wires instead, I find zero reason to spend more money for less sound. Keep your Alpine, forget Kicker, AMERICAN BASS! OH... and do yourself a favor. Spend a few more dollars and get them from Sonic. They are without a doubt the best in the business.

Wish I would have purchased them

April 9, 2016

I researched these for months. Now I wish I would have purchased these as soon as I seen them. I have 2 on 1400 watts and they barely move. They are in break-in period, but my amp is not enough to push them. Massive air movement. For the price, these are no joke. I have influenced others to purchase xfl's. When people hear them, they don't believe it's 2 that are underpowered. I will be upgrading my amp to see what they can really do. Good looking out sonicelectronix, you are always providing superior service.

Solid Subwoofer

February 12, 2016

I have two XFL1244's in a 1.0cu.ft sealed box and a Sundown Audio SCV2000d amplifier. These subwoofers are impressive, I was going to purchase the Sundown SA12's but these seemed to be a good match, and they are. If you are contemplating getting a 1000watt rms sub, get the XFL1244. I have ran 4 compVR's at 1500watts and the xfl's hit harder.
I had unboxed these subs at work and anyone who saw them (audiophile or not) were stopped in teir tracks. I have mechanical Engineers who looked at this sub and commented on the power handling and how well built the XFL's are. If I could fit more in my Genesis Track, I would.
Bottom line... well built, hard hitting, economical

Sonic electronix shipped the product really quick it got to me four days before the expected delivery date. I have also been in contact with American Bass and they have great customer support and are willing to help you with any questions you have about the sub and what you might need to get the best use out of it. Overall i would say this is the best customer service i have ever received. I have not gotten to use the sub yet I will place another review when i do.

Doing 4 of these in 2 separate enclosures in a gmc jimmy. What's the required cubic feet per pair? I've heard 3.5 cubes for a pair? Will be my daily driver but I listen to very low computer generated bass. What size slot port am I looking at for 32-35 hertz tune ? I'll be using 2 CT Sounds 2500.1 mono blocks for power. Can't find any enclosure information online for these subs. Little help here lol

does this come with wiring already on it? if so what is it wired to? 2 or 4 ohm?
Marshall E on Nov 6, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Marshall,

The driver DOES come with wiring already on it, but it is NOT "wired" in a special way. Look at the wiring as simply an extension of a traditional speaker terminal. Instead of regular "spring loaded" or "binding post" terminals, it is JUST a wire (x4) .
