Loud Sub

Jason from Tampa, FL, Sonic Electronix
24 May 2012
  • Conclusion: I listen to one of these all the time in my friend's car. It slams! He pushes it past the rms too often but this subwoofer handles it well. I have seen this sub pushed obviously past it's limits for a couple minutes straight and it is DURABLE! Luckily, it just wont blow. The sound quality isn't there. I have W3's and they are noticeably cleaner. If you put this in the right size ported box, it is well worth the money.

Amazing Subwoofer

Steve from Tewksbury, MA, Sonic Electronix
24 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Previously, I had a 15" Kicker Comp, and I loved it but it was too big and took up too much trunk space, so this time around I wanted something smaller and louder. I got it! This is a great sub woofer and will not disappoint, I couldn't be more pleased.

Alpine Type R

johnny from birmingham, AL, Sonic Electronix
15 May 2012
  • Conclusion: If you want loud get these. They dont change notes very well between high and low hits but they are still loud. If your lokking for everyone around to hear you get these. Two of these in a ported box is all the bass you would ever need.

Awesome

maxwell from Massapequa, NY, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Got the package fast. These pound in my car. Didn't realize how hard they would hit. I am very satisfied for the price i got them for. Also came with really thick wires. So far they been fine and I've been blasting them down the street and people can always hear me.

Insane Bass

tcullen1 from Independence, MO, Sonic Electronix
24 April 2012
  • Conclusion: I have one in a 2009 Ford Escape for my wife. It's running off a pr2.100 Memphis 2 channel bridged at 300 rms. This sub is by far not getting enough wattage but the sound and clarity is superior than 2 PR Memphis 12's. This one sub is plenty for her car and I recommend this for all. This sub is well worth 200.00 range easily. I fiberglassed a box with 1.9 cu internal vented tuned at 32hz. This is a 5 star sub.

Make sure you get a box designed to spec!

Travis from Fuquay Varina, NC, Sonic Electronix
15 April 2012
  • Conclusion: I had one alpine type r in a walmart box and was very disappointed. So I decided to get a second one and put them in a ported box designed to spec. WOW what a difference. I was bumping so hard my rear view mirror fell off! I would definitely recommend this sub just make sure you buy a ported box from sonic instead of settling for a walmart box!!

You wont be disappointed

Matthew from Spicer, MN, Sonic Electronix
14 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Have had mine for at least 3 months or so. I have an 1100 watt peak 550 rms amp hooked up to this and I am not gentle with it. Just one 12 in a custom ported box and this blows away my friends two kicker CVRs. Definitely worth spending the extra buck to get these. You wont be disappointed.

Hard hittin

Grant from Ohio, Sonic Electronix
9 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Bought this along with an RF Prime R500.1 (528RMS). At first I had this in a sealed box and I was happy. Then I got a ported 1.8 cu ft box and this thing hits so dang hard. When the back seats are down it shakes my winshield and side mirrors like crazy. So many people ask what I have in back and they are amazed when I tell em its only 1 12". This thing out does 2 kickers easily. Almost nothing can compete with this sub in its range.

Good System

Ryan from Minneapolis MN, Sonic Electronix
18 March 2012
  • Conclusion: I got this and installed it in my IS250. It hits good and has the deeps. Installers thought it would be underpowered but the sub sounds good. Amp kit that comes with it sucks, buy a legit one.

Great subs!

Max from Fond du Lac, WI, Sonic Electronix
17 March 2012
  • Conclusion: These subs are a great deal. They are built with amazing quality and they are cheaper than almost any sub in it's class. I have two of these with a Hifonics HFI2000d amp and they pound. Make sure you give them enough power though, otherwise they won't play at all.
