Polk Audio db1040

Sam D., Crutchfield
10 March 2013
  • Summary: I think for the price and power handling these are an exellent buy (buy 1 get 1 half off in Crutchfield). I am running a pair wired in parallel on an alpine 500w RMS mono amp in a ported box and for me i dont need anymore than what these deliver. I would definatly recomend these to a friend.
  • Cons: The break in period seems like forever, 20-30 hrs.

polk 1040

jamie, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I am super pleased with the quality of this woofer, I am running a boston 300 RMS amp that compliments it perfect. I have matched it up with a S/O box and it hits really clean and crisp. It is super tough material and seems to be a great buy. I have owned Woofers from Cerwin Vega to Kicker and this one can handle it's work load. I highly recommend this woofer.
  • Pros: no complaints here.

  • Summary: i bought theses while they were buy one get one half off. at that price ithin kthey are worth it. i used these to replace two cheap mtx magnums and before i even have them broken in i can tell they sound deeper and more solid. plus they look fantastic. i am very pleased with the look, build and sound quality of these speakers. i only gave 4 stars because you get what you pay for and these are not five star subs. good for the price though.

Provides the Missing Bass

John from Oklahoma City, OK, Sonic Electronix
30 August 2011
  • Conclusion: This sub works great. Previously, my '02 LeSabre had nice sound with a Clarion head unit driving Sony ExPlode speakers in the door and back. I purchased this sub, an enclosure with a Jensen amp recommended by the excellent phone hostess. Within a week I had it professionally installed and I tuned the bass to fill in what was missing. It provides oomph and subtle warmth. when cranked, it performs admirably without cracking.

Can't ask for more for the money!

  • Summary: Love these subs! I installed 2 of them in a custom built 1.25cu. ft. ported box and they sound AMAZING. They deliver beautiful rich bass tones and really give you the thump you're looking for when listening to rock or hip hop. I am powering them with the Polk Audio PA400.1 amp, and it delivers just the right amount of power to really make these subs perform. Worth every penny. 5 stars in every category, only negative is that the terminals arent push terminals.

Quad-Cab Dodge Ram Install

RonH, Crutchfield
4 May 2011
  • Summary: Put two of these subs in a custom fit box under the rear seat of a 2011 quad cab ram. Was orginally going to go with kicker, but the polks better accomodated the limited airspace (~.65 cubic ft) and were able to handle more RMS power that the comps. Still in the break-in period with mine and it sounds great. Pushing them with a boston acoustic 800.1 amp.

Old Faithful

Brandon S., Crutchfield
13 February 2011
  • Summary: I installed 2 of these in a sealed box for my brother with a pound of stuffing inside and am powering them with a 600.1 Polk Audio amp. These subs deliver more than enough bass to complement any factory stereo or wallat friendly stereo system in a vehical. I owned 2 12" versions powered by the same amp now powering his system and my 12's lasted me 6 years before the surrounds finally gave out. These subs are all he asked for and more!!!
