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"
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.
3000 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.
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).
18 - 700 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 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.

Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
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) w/ Carbon/Glass Fiber
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.
Wide-Roll 3-Layer Fiber Radial Surround
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Unbelievable bass

February 5, 2009

I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a sound out of this world. I am running a 760 watt amp and i cant imagine what the bass would be if i was running the full thousand watts through it. I will guarantee you will be blown away if you have very thing properly hooked up.

Big Sound

December 31, 2008

I have two of these in my car man do they hit if you sit in the back seat you can actually get a massage. It sounds really good I have them in a mediocre box right now but it doesn't hesitate to shake the house. I park down the street and I can still hear the bass shaking my house I feel bad for my neighbors for keeping me up with their music at night now it's my turn! But really these do not need much room to make themselves heard they are loud i like how they are made air suspended but these cannot handle more than one thousand rms for sure they will start smokin and eventually burn so keep it exact or less than 1000rms.

Bump!

October 30, 2008

I got two of these in my eclipse and man do they bump! When i took them out of the box i was amased how giant and heavy they were. Kinda hard screwing them in straight due to the massive magnet weight they have. Very nice quality. I heard others compare these to the W-6. Very happy with these and make sure YOU DONT UNDER POWER THEM! And get a capacitor from Sonic while you are at it!

SPL Monster

April 10, 2008

Wow, definitely a monster. I thought this sub would look smaller but it definitely exceeded my expectations in power and size. I have two of these in my Chevrolet Suburban and I'm pushing 2000 watts rms out of these bad boys. My doors just want to fly off and my mirror just wants to fall off. I definitely recommend a nice battery and alternator with these subs. These are straight spl monsters and sound clear and deep. Get these and get some Dynamat!

BA Subwoofer

January 31, 2008

I own just one of these powered by a Kenwood 1800watt amp at 2ohms pushing about 900watts in a ported box. But I realized that when I bought the box for it it was way to small so I'm getting one custom made for it but even in a small box this bad boy thumps I can tell that it wants to get big but it cant cause of such a small box. But you just need on of these to thump and for such a cheap price this is good if your on a budget.

BANG FOR THE BUCKS ...NOT PATHETIC!

December 13, 2007

I have 1 in a 2'sq vented box with actually a 1600watt redline amp powering it(set at 1/4 power running 8ohm) and that sub rocks for the whole ride to work and back home. Amp never gets hot, sub sounds clear the entire time which is great no overheating distortion. For $125 this sub is actually a decent sub yes not the greatest but it is also not over $150. I would recommend this sub for those who are looking for clarity not setting off car alarms as you drive by. (and if you like that stuff then spend the money and get what you pay for) P>S> been installing systems for the past 17 yrs heard LOTS of speakers...........

Absolutely Pathetic

December 11, 2007

Had this sub running to a 800watt RMS amp at 2 ohms and even though the cone moved very well the output was pathetic. My old 400watt Premier sub put out a lot more.thought something was wrong with it and sent it back and was told it was fine, if so then it is the worst sub I have ever owned or heard and I've owned quite a few in last 15 years.

December 5, 2007

I got 2 of these subs in a fifth order box that is ported through the rear deck in my deville and man do these things pound!!! Alot of people are hesitant when I tell them I have pioneers for subs but there jaws drop when I let them here the music get down! I will say that you have to but the better quality pioneers when purchasing subs cause if you think your going to go to walmart to get this quality then forget it.

What was I thinking......

December 4, 2007

I have a 2005 Honda Civic with 2 of these in a ported box. I have owned a few Premier series subwoofers in the past but never anything like this. THESE SUBS ARE HUGE! 28 lbs a piece. The pictures of these subs in no way give you any idea about the power you will need to push them. The stiffness of the cone gives the impression you could stand on them. I have 2 Bazooka mono 700 watt amps on these and they barely move, but the bass is impressive to say the least. I live outside the city limits and can be heard almost a mile away.
