Conclusion: I bought this at a bundle with a 350w Kenwood amp from sonicelectronix. when i first put them in it hit pretty hard and put out some good clean bass but after only a month of bumpin around it started to have this ugly crackling sound at higher frequencies... wont be getting another one of these. maybe i just pushed it too hard being that it is only a 400 watt sub, even though it was only getting 150w RMS. Ehh.
Conclusion: I have had these for about 3 months and they have over achieved my expectations they are the loudest i have experienced yet and i have not been around competition subs yet so im excited. MTX is the best way to go.
Conclusion: I've owned these subs for about 9 months now. They have lasted great through the abuse. Ive had this sub on 3 amps (dont buy kenwood amps), and in two different boxes, one in old lexus, and the new ported one in my ranger. From the beginning i was overpowering these subs by 50 rms a piece. Now, they are being run by a hifonics 1000.d amp at 2 ohms.
Conclusion: Sounds great, no problems short of the neighbors feeling me come down the street. It is however slightly bigger than the one I was replacing. Be sure to check the dimensions closely when ordering.
Conclusion: This speaker is one of the best subwoofers ever made. I wont quote spl's or power handling statistics or any other such specification. I will point to the fact that this this speaker has remain virtually unchanged for 25, yes, twenty five years. In fact, I bought my first terminators in 1989. I have purchased at least 20 of these subs from 8-18 inches. The woofer has a natural tone and can accurately reproduce a wide range of bass frequencies.
Conclusion: Great speakers! I'm using them on a pair of MTX home audio speakers that finally went out on me after years of Djing & abuse. The new ones are even better. You can't go wrong with these subs !!!
