To match the system already in my vehicle
William J on Jan 16, 2017
I picked this item because my grandson asked for it as a Christmas present.

Have had many of these and they hit hard for the right price
Heidi Rosko on Nov 28, 2016
I asked on your facebook page but know one will get back with me on it . The subs this box asked for is only 1.25 cf each total 2.50 CB . If the box says it's over 3CF so is there a type o or that's how it is ?
andrew d on Nov 14, 2014
Best Answer: The VCE212 was built specifically to get the most out of the VCW12s. This box is correct. It has been fully engineered from the ground up to maximize the output of the VCW12s

What amp would you recommend for one of these 12s?
Brian F on Dec 22, 2016
Best Answer: I had the NVX BD750 amp with the NVX 10" in the Tesla Boost box...switched to the 12" NVX in a sealed box firing down in the Tesla rear foot well on the same amp for a couple of days. Sold the 10" and 750 amp and put in the 1200W NVX amp. I would say that it is power matched pretty well ...and absolutely crushes the 10"

How does this sub compare to the alpine type r? Also when will the sub be back in stock?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
Best Answer: This sub is very impressive. Funny you ask how they compare to the Alpine type r subs because my buddy has two in a ported box and my single vcw sounds the same, and actually hits those deeper tones better. I have mine in a 1.8 cubic ft. ported box. personally the best sub iv owned so far. Hope this helped.

Will they handle the audio pipe 3000 amp?
Reddog on Jun 5, 2016
Best Answer: Yes they love power, they're rated for 1000 watt rms but they'll take much more. I'm running two vcw 124's at 1ohm on a soundstream 4000 watt amp and they do just fine. They pound hard in a 2ft³ ported box at 32hz and the bass is crystal clear. That amp has a little too much power though so just be careful, you should be fine with the 3000 watt.

A sealed box for this sub is .75cf does that include subwoofer displacement? And out of curiosity does anyone know what that subwoofer displacement is?
conway h on Jun 5, 2015
Best Answer: No it does not include subwoofer displacement. The vcw124 displacement is .11 cubic feet from what I calculated

What's the thickest speaker wire gauge these push terminals can swallow?...I was thinking 8... "can't wait until my DC 2k gets here!"
Chuck D on Sep 14, 2014
Best Answer: 12 is enough, I have two 1200watt slash going to two type X, and I think 12 gauge speaker wire is the biggest they make, or maybe 10, anyway 12 is plenty.

Will the 440 watts (@ 2 ohms) in the NVX 900.5 subwoofer channel be enough to power this sub efficiently?
David B on Nov 13, 2015
Best Answer: In my opinion not really, that's barely enough to break in the sub. To run this sub in a ported enclosure efficiently you would need 800-900 watts rms and 1000-1100 watts rms for sealed enclosures. That's after proper break-in time, I usually give new subs 48 hours of play time, but these subs have a stiff suspension so I gave them about 80 hours. I'm using a RF R1200-1d @ 1 ohm tuned to -5 dB. I have the vcw122 in a ported enclosure with 1.88 cu ft after displacement tuned @ 31 hrz sounds amazing, people think I have 15's because of how low and loud it is. Sub and vent facing in the cabin sealed from the trunk.

why does this have such good ratings, but utilizes high temp alum for coils? Is this beyond my knowledge of basic thermal properties? just sort of confused
A shopper on Apr 5, 2016
Best Answer: Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat, thus why it is used is almost all radiators. "High Temp" refers to its ability to handle and disperse higher temperatures; they aren't advertising that their sub gets really hot lol. it In terms of being beyond your knowledge of thermal properties..... well this is a basic thermal property so it seems you may need to to rethink your knowledge of basic thermal properties.

This is an great subwoofer for the cost. If you know what you're doing and properly power this sub it will astonish you. Great sound quality and amplitude.

hi..i buyed an 12 gauge wire for this sub...i need to wire it to have 2 ohm, becouse i have an monoblock amplifier 2ohm x 1000 wrms...but i have a problem..the wire dont fit the input of the fit only when the wire is single..but when i but when I connect it together ,positive with positive and negative with negative it dont fit..too large...what to do now'?buy 12 gauge wire?..or maybe there are some accesories to make so that it enters? please help
Gelu P on Sep 15, 2015
Best Answer: Run single wire from both coils straight to the amp, it's got 4 terminal's right. Most sub amps have 4 terminal's

Hi, it there the difference of sound quality , or of the bass response, or others factors, If when i make the box , the port air is not in the front of box but lateral, as well as the design pre made of Car Audio Fabrications for the sub NVX VCW 12" : 2.00 Cubic Ft @ 32 HZ
17.00 Deep x 32.00 Wide x 14.00 Tall. My questions is : change something if the air will be released laterally and not frontally, I do not know how to explain. I always saw that all the boxes had the front air outlet, but not sideways like that design. ? Thanks very much!
Gelu P on Dec 26, 2014
Best Answer: The design that has a port in the front uses a L shaped port (meaning the air inside the box travels in a L shaped pattern). This is just the most simple design and provides great low end response with minimal distortion. The design I believe you are referencing is similar however is utilizes three chambers to slow down the port velocity which reduces port noise but it doesn't really have a name. It is quite the complicated box and must be done right otherwise lots of distortion can be introduced. A simpler design utilizing a port laterally is a S shaped port (meaning the air will travel in a S shaped pattern). This box design creates the need for a slightly larger box because the port area will be larger meaning net box volume will be lower for the same dimensions as a L shaped design. The S shaped port is a great option if you have the space, cleaner bass, and less port noise. The subwoofer is also mounted on the top versus on the side and the port can either come out the left or right side of the box versus the front. Make sure that each port wall is of equal size and is not too small to avoid forming a straight line to the port, this will cause lots of distortion and port noise and will basically make the sub sound terrible. I personally use a L shaped port for my vcw124 and it sounds great and is very loud. I called the manufacturer and they recommend 1.75-2.75 cubic feet and tuned 30-34hz. Mine is 2.2 cubes tuned at 33hz hits all way down to 20hz and makes my ears hurt at full tilt. Hope this helps!

How would this sub sound in a 1.25 Cu Ft sealed box? Or would that be a bad Idea?
Kev2087 on Jun 11, 2015
Best Answer: That is slightly too large of a sealed box for this subwoofer. .75 cu ft would be the recommended size for a sealed box as per manufacturer. 1.25 cu ft would be ideal for a ported box. It is recommended to stick to those sizes.

optimum ported box specs?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2014
Best Answer: 3.12 ft ported tuned to 34hz
Minus sub and port displacement.
In that box the sub will get low and hit highs all with very accurate bass reponse. Can't speak for the durability of this sub but it sounds really great

What is the displacement of this sub reversed?
Manuel G on Jan 4, 2016
Best Answer: i would find the displacement from a similar sub and use those specs, because I can't find anything in the manual. I need to no what size port to use, or if I can vent the box. I'll probably call NVX. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

What amplifier wiring kit i need ? I like 1/0 gauge...but i'm confused..i think to push it with RE Audio ZTX 3000.1 D , it's is powerful ? What you recommend?
Gelu P on Nov 27, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Gelu,

The RE Audio ZTX-3000.1 is a Great match for the VCW124! [2 ohms: 1000 watts x 1 chan.] . 1k is well within needing AT LEAST 4 Gauge. Especially if the distance from the Battery to the Amp is minimal. We always suggest OFC Wiring for such a setup; Preferably the NVX XKIT42 or NVX XKIT02.
