Will this sub hit harder then a alpine type r?
Nickp on Mar 19, 2016
Best Answer: Short answer, YES! Longer answer is the NVX has to be placed in the right type of box before you get the type if "hit" you want. If its rock music then sealed is the way to go with maybe .75cu ft. If its deep strong bass 1.25cu ft. Ported will be the best. I'd also recommend purchasing two subs and run at least a 1500w RMS amp...the cleaner the power the better the sub sounds. I hope my over-the-top answer helps.

Best Answer: Reese, I'm assuming that one of the reasons for the NVX line to be so cheap in price is because they are teamed up with Sonic Electronix, its an inside brand. Unlike the big companies like JL, Kicker, etc. They have a bigger team of engineers, staff and PR department that they have to pay for. NVX doesn't need that much so they pass those savings on to the end user. I speak only for NVX as I was in the Sonic Electronix warehouse to have a system installed in my car.

does this sub have the tinsel leads stitched into the spider?
ANTHONY S on Aug 9, 2015
Best Answer: Yes it does, this sub is a beast. Have it running on a Fosgate r1200-1d, 1350 rms watts. Be sure to DD-1 your amps so u don't have any distortion in your system.

i am trying to decide what sub will sound better on a 1.80 FT^3 sealed enclosure in the trunk of my car? amplifier is a DB Drive A6 2800.1 wired at 2 ohms

Best Answer: Hello,

First, you cannot wire either of the two drivers specified to a 2ohm load. They are both Dual-2ohm subs, which means you can only wire to a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. Furthermore, you also cannot wire an amplifier to any specific load, as that is impossible; we're sure you know that, but just want to make sure we're on the same page.

Now, assuming you meant to specify the Dual-4ohm version of each subwoofer, we still can't give you the ok, because that amplifier claims a modest 1400w RMS @2ohms, which is a bit more than we're comfortable letting go by. The large sealed enclosure is also an issue, but not the glaring one at this point. We suggest speaking to our sales team to find a suitable driver for you.

Works with Boss CXXD2800
2800W MAX Class D Single Channel Monoblock Chaos Exxtreme Series Amplifier?
BetoPower on Nov 8, 2014
Best Answer: This subwoofer will hit very hard with that amp. I have my running on an ssl 2600. Ssl is owned by boss so the amps are very similar. In my opinion this sub makes more sense than buying an overpriced alpine or jl.

VCW122. What is the recommended volume for this in a sealed enclosure? The online manual says .85 however the instruction booklet says 1.00?
Michael S on Jan 20, 2016
Best Answer: Depends on how much power your running. You could run it in either. Don't know the actual spec. But if your running the smaller spec put more power. If your running the larger spec put less power. Email nvx they will give you more info on your question. Larger should hit lower while smaller should hit tighter but not quite as low but again depending on the power your running

Does the sealed specs include the subwoofer displacement? Thanks
A shopper on Dec 20, 2015
Best Answer: From my experience with both ported and sealed enclosure I'd have to say that the .85cu.ft. Is including the displacement of the sub. From some of the test with different enclosure designs I've found that a ported box built to 1.25-1.35 will yield nice deep bass you can hear and feel down to about 30-35 hertz (42 to 47 herts being the tube point). A sealed enclosure around .85 - 1.0 will hit with more punch. For me I run 1-12" NVX powered by a kicker 2500.1 @ 4 ohms. Puts out about 1250watts which drives the sub hard with no problems. All in all a decent sub for the money.

hi there what is the Peak Power Handling of this sub?

A shopper on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hello ,

NVX is a 'Performance' Manufacture, and this is especially true with the VC line of drivers. Moreover, 'Peak/Max' Power Handling is a useless figure, and is often only use by manufactures to advertise a Large Number on the box. Because of this , NVX does not bother with providing such a figure. Instead, the provide the TRUE Power Range, RMS. In this case, the RMS Power Range is 850-1000 watts .

If, however, you are asking 'what the MOST power' that you can run the subwoofer at is, we CANNOT answer that. It would be VERY irresponsible for us to do so. We can only stick to the Manufacture's suggested range. This is because BLOWN Subwoofers are NOT covered under warranty, and if we told you that the subwoofer can realistically handle xxxxwRMS and you blew the sub, we would be held liable. We hope you understand.

Here is a hint though, do some video searches of the VCW122, you Might stumble on a few videos that will answer that question.

Best Answer: Hello,

Based on the options you have provided, we like the NVX VCW122. At 1ohm, the figures match perfectly.
