Conclusion: It's a decent subwoofer i had it in a ported 1.35 sqft box and a Rockford fosgate 500-1 amp. I was pushing 500 rms and it handled it. Would probably sound better in a sealed box as the bass lagged. It's not really the max watts it says of course. It's good or the price I would recommend it for starters. The terminals for the coils could have been made simpler too.
Conclusion: I had purchased this subwoofer along with lanzar 800w amp. After 3 months the voice coil went out and the subwoofer never once did was cranked or anything so it had failed to be a good value.
Conclusion: This sub just wasnt up to par with what i expected. probably some of my own fault. it was just a temp sub anyways. Now im building an all kicker system, and of course buying it all through Sonic. Good prices, fast and usually free shipping.
