Subwoofer Specifications

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.
2400 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.
1200 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.
2 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".
90 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.
17.78 mm
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

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.
6.75"

Rediculous

December 9, 2010

I found out about these subs from a old friend. He had to 15 inch mofos with 2 1000 watt Memphis amps on each one and they made his 89 caprice classic flex. So me being curious I bought two 12 inch Mofos for my 08 Dodge Charger and put them in a ported box and let me tell you these things are nothing but the truth I have a 5000 watt Boss d class amplifier and I'm scared to turn my amp up because I done know what it will do to my car. These things catch every little low note that's put into them. And for the price you wouldn't believe the sound.

do it right... get something amazing

October 6, 2008

For the price of this sub you will be amazed by what you just invested in. I designed a system for a friend of mine that had a q-logic box (Double 12" Hatchback Enclosure, TYPE 3 Vented, 1.75 cu.ft. X 2, Dimensions: 14.375"H X 34"W X 21"D) tuned to 25 Hz powered by 2 earthquake TNT's (T2000W/4) for a total of 4000 watts. each sub was bridge to its own amp. Although these subs say they have a 2400 W max we couldn't afford bigger amps and it also required 2.4 cubic feet per sub and we were only giving them 1.75. His trunk is now reshaped and the paint is starting to crack. We can't fully power them with the car lights on because they dim to much and they still haven't been maxed out. Best bang for your Buck.

DO NOT underestimate this sub, i drive by and people think i've got at least 2 maybe 3 subs in my truck and they cant believe it when they only find one, when powered right this thing can hit every low bass possible and still keep up with the fast rock songs, if you are looking for the deep bass of a W7 and the highs of a Kicker, purchase this sub for a fraction of the price

looks good, works bad

July 10, 2008

i have this sub running on an old 850 watt rockford fosgate amp and cooked the voice coil in days, i then returned it for another and i tuned my amp down with a multimeter and this sub can handle 1000 watts max. another bad part is the cone, its a heat sync, so its hot to the touch and causes the sub to have no clarity whatsoever, even my brothers 300 watt jl is louder. i only bought this as a temp sub because it was $100 and change at the time i bought it... the only cool part of the sub is the crate it comes in. lol

April 10, 2008

This sub is loud...but not loud enough for me... and the power rating that power acoustik has for it is bull... it cannot handle 1200watts of true unadulterated power.. by far it was the best ive owned so far.. but when i hooked up a 600 watt rms rockfordfosgate amp too it i almost blew this sub out so yeah if u want real power go with either two of these subs or just spend more money on a different subs preferably rockfords T2 series will rock ur car so ur boys down the block will actually hear you coming.

I work with car audio for 10 years I started of when I was young I heard so many things and nothing compares to this subwoofer for this price you guys thought power acoustik was cheap and off brand well think again their by far the best in town but I have no idea why they are not known I would recommend these over a JL W7 any day but you need a strong amp to push the and you're box can not be sealed it has to be open ported cause the you will break the box because of geometric pressure I have 4 in my Tahoe but it's a deff. by ~john~

This is easily one of the best subwoofers I've ever dealt with. My buddy had 2 of these in the trunk of his Ford Taurus. To put it simply, they made their presence known. The only thing I don't like about them is that they weigh about 70lbs!
