Ive got an ssl 5000 watt class d monoblock running two hiphonic dvc the amp has blowed alpine type r 12 and sony 10,12 when u drop the ohms1 ohm its really pushes the watts il let yall no in a few days if the subs realy as good as everyone says so for they are taking it but i also dont have my amp jacked up but about half so far there taking it i think if they will handle it il get two more just for the bang bc i thrive on it its my passion to feel my whole truck vibrating ridiculous im a strate bass head junky. I have been spendinging  one speaker what i could probally buy like five of these for one of them if anyone wants a badass amp ssl 5000 cost me like 180 with warrenty for two years and its probally the best amp ive ever had its about a year old now so far never had an issue with it im hopeing that i can say the same about the subs 94silveraldo ext cab is very impressive they fit under the back seat of course i had to build my own box face them down to the floor board stay up about an inch for movement  and still have all your room with two

I replaced my Soundstream sub with this Hifonics model and ran it at 8 ohms with 240rms on Tap.  The box is 1.8 cu ft tuned to 40hz, a bit bigger then the recommended 1.6 cu ft but the tuning port is same. 

The subwoofer seems to be very good performing sub, but I have noticed at certain frequencies the plastic covering seems to rattle and the sound was eminating from the port.  This is usually at high volumes and with a lot of cone movement.  Will see if I can take the plastic casing out from the back.  The sub has good excursion limit and the only drawback is the rattling.  For an entry level sub, the manufacturers have spent money on its mechanical factors and it matters the most.  Just follow the manufacturers recommendation with box requirements and I am happy with the result.  A great buy for an entry level sub that performs very well. Another downside is the effecieny of 87db /1mtr, you will need a good amp to drive it.  Highly recommended as an entry level subwoofer!!!

Well i will start off for the sound these things beat good, but i will say at certian hertz the plastic back will rattle but at low hertz it doesn't. I put 300-325 into it for about 45 at loud volume (the only way i listen) and it smoked don't really know if i got a bad speaker or just too much power. But we will see im sending it back and will write another review when i get mine back. Oh and the terminal holes are kinda small for sub gauge wire... Just FYI

i had written a previous revew for this speaker, but now i realize it's not as good as i had previously thought. still a great starter speaker. and it hits hard right out of the box, but it wont last, if pushed to it's rms watt on a reguler basis, expect to clip the voice coils in a couple months, i drive a tuner car and dont want 400 lbs of stereo in the trunk, so i generaly buy one sub and push it at it's limit, this sub only handled about 350 clean watts for a couple months. now thair trash. but if your not worried about weight two in a big box @ 400-500 watts rms would make for a clean reliable system at a great price.

this is a great deal!! this is the best sounding speaker for the price i have ever bought, and i have bought a lot.  i was running jl wo10 and sound quality was great but the low power handling led to clipped voice coils. i bought this as a cheap replacement just for right now, i dont think im going to need to upgrade.

im running it in the same 1.25 cft ported box the wo's use witch is a little small. but i preffer this as it adds more punch. bridged at 2 ohm. with a one farid capasitor.  running on a planet audio 2 ohm stable amp at around 300 rms. 

i am super impressed, i love jl audio but i also love my money.  im going to buy a couple more to put in the closet, cuz my freands are going to want some too.  but im gunna charg them $75!! ha ha!

I bought 3 of these. Put them in a 6 cubic foot sealed custom box. Infinity 1600 watt Monoblock wired in a series down to 2.7 ohms. And It slams I am getting roof flex and door flex like mad and havent tuned the amp to its full potential yet so it will get louder. The subs are great slam harder than anybody in my area at the time so I would say A+++. You can see them on youtube.com. U will not be disappointed.

I just made a custom box and put two of these subs in my extended cab s10 and the next morning I played them and my neighbor came outside and told me to turn them down because he could not hear the news. For the money you can not pass up this deal. I have dealt with a lot of stereo systems before and for as cheap as these subs are they are well worth the money. Right now I only have a 200 watt rockford fosgate amp hooked up to them because I got it for free and wanted to see if the subs were any good. Very good beginner subs. If you are looking for more I would highly recommend the Brutus Hifonics B12SQD4 and bridge them down to one ohm they hit very hard, But I would recommend this subs to someone on a tight budget.

Bought one of these subs. Hits decent for the money but is not the most durable sub. If you plan on going over the rated RMS wattage you will eventually blow this sub. It is very finicky and will whine at you when turned up at a decent level. Other than that it’s ok for a beginner sub.
