Had these 2 of these in a sealed box powered buy a bridged jensen 720W and even with that little amp the were amazing, clean response, got extremely deep considering the box they were in, and extremely well priced. I sold mine about a year ago and I'm looking at getting another pair.

Good starting subs, I bought them when I was young, but I soon realized that I wanted more power, and these subs just can't handle that much power. They sound good, but you can get much better subs for nearly the same price.

I gotta give this the perfect 10. I hooked one of these up to the 1000 watt kenwood amp i also bought from onlinecarstereo, and omg some low notes i can feel in my chest and some notes make my vision shake. it sounds great too at low levels. I have this in a Absolute VEGS12 ported box in my 98 jeep cherokee and it hits hard. Im happy with both price and quality. definate buy again

Actually ordered the 3011s and got these instead? Seems like they are doing that to everyone...at first I wanted to send them back because this has the urethane surround and not the rubber and has a lower sensitivity rating than the 3011...but after I installed 2 of them on my jl 500/1 and tuned it...I was more than pleased...they have a larger Xmax than the 3011, and sound just as good (i have a 3011 in my other car) I just hope they will last as long as my 3011 has, which is about 17 months so far with no problems.

CLEAN SOUND, GREAT SOUND QUALITY, AND GOOD PRICE, COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE! i have 2 in a sealed box in the back of my 02 avalanche. I thought it was a joke when people say they "hear me coming." so i tested it out my self, told my friend to drive down the block, turn it up and man, i was really impressed. Only downside was that they do bottom out easily so just adjust your GAIN and LPF. You shouldn't have a problem.

just purchased one of these the other day, threw it in my dodge ram 3500 behind the seat in the middle, along with two other shallow mount 12s under my seat. this sub works awesome, hits the highs and lows very well. it couldnt ask for anything better, especially for the price, its a great sub. I recommed to buy if looking for a 12 inch sub

I bought two of these and had them placed in a custom sealed box that was made for my car by a local audio store. Powered by a Kicker 750watt amp, they sound(ed) amazing, I would recommend them to anyone. However one of my subs had a defective coil and shorted out, after shipping it to an authorized Kenwood location to have it fixed I found out that they would not replace it because this website is not an authorized Kenwood distributor, I would buy these subs, but if you do buy them from somewhere else.

all in all a great speaker for the price and service is great,Mounted 2 of these in a ported box in my VW Jetta fits perfect,using a hifonics brutus mono amp(at 4ohm) and a boss 10 farad capacitor clean sound with a good punch best of all I can remove it if I need the extra room to haul coolers.

I ordered the w3011's but got these instead. I'm not complaining though. I have these in a ported box tuned to 38hz with an internal volume of 2.01 cubic feet. Mounted inward on top of the box so everyone can see the magnets, with the ports pointing towards the back. I built the box myself for my '00 Montero Sport, separate chambers with cross bracing and double sheet baffle of 3/4inch MDF. Right now I'm still breaking them in pushing only 120watts to each speaker. After break-in period of 50hrs, I will bridge my amps. Using Blaupunkt PCA2120 amps, 1 per sub, 300watts RMS w/350 max dynamic. Now I used to have a single 12 Kenwood Excelon XW1202DVC being pushed by one of these amps and I blew it out so I know these amps aren't underpowered. Hope this helps anyone trying to decide if they want this sub. And yes at 120watts it bumps, I just don't have the gain all the way up.

Well I actually ordered the KFC w-3011's, and they sent me these. This is the 2009 version of the 3011's with improved cone designs. Thanks for free upgrade ocs.. I'm not going to tell you these are the best subs in the world because they aren't, but I will tell you they are amazing for the price.. They are very fast and pick up a good range.. They hit very hard.. When I first wired these baby's up I was very surprised. I am more than happy with them. These can blow away many sub-woofers that cost double the price.. If you just want some good loud base for a cheap price this is the perfect sub for you.. Also OCS's price was very good.. At my local electronics store these subs retail for $140.00 plus tax..
