Bad sound quality

Dennis from Edison, NJ, Sonic Electronix
17 March 2012
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for sound quality, you'll have to look elsewhere, this isn't your subwoofer for SQ. It gets loud and boomy, and anyone reviewing this product with 5/5 on everything only cares about volume, but not sound quality. People might write "it shakes my car man" or "it slams so hard" which it does do well. It does get loud indeed if that's what you're looking for in a cheap/value/budget subwoofer. The subwoofer does look nice though, and the material is tough.

wow.

Paul from Tewksbury, MA, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Got these subs in a sound ordnance ported box and WOW do they freaking slam. I have them on an Alpine mrp-m650 giving them 600 watts and they couldn't be happier. These are so loud, clear, and punchy. I love them.

Hmmm, think again

LickyLickyRightHere from Albuquerque, NM, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: This driver has a defined rattle to it. I've had it in a sealed and a ported box both matched to it in specs. It is underpowered at the moment and I have given up on locating the source of the rattle. Now it's time for another brand.

last about 4 months

Kenneth from HANSCOM AFB, MA, Sonic Electronix
27 August 2011
  • Conclusion: I bought 2 of them and had them boomin for about 4 months. Then one just stopped working. Customer support is wonderful they gave me credit and got it replaced. Then the other went up in smokes one month after being paired with the replacement. Sent it back then the next day the replacement stopped working. Didnt change any settings on the amp. Will not be purchasing these subs anymore.

Great sound at a great price

Eric from Sault Ste Marie Ontario, Canada, Sonic Electronix
22 June 2011
  • Conclusion: At first I was unsure of whether the Alpine PDX5 amplifier would power two 1043D's enough to produce decent bass in my sedan. I was pleasantly surprised by the volume and by the frequencies that this combination could achieve. I prefer clear and balanced music in my vehicle over making myself deaf and these subs achieved my goal.
