Nice Sub

Strengths: Very clean and tight bass, one of a kind 12"

Weakness: Lacks in very deep bass

I have two of these in a Ported box witch is currently being torn apart by these subs. I also own a 15" Rockford HE2, and these 12's sound great for their size. We often get compliments. These subs sound very good with loud music such as rap, we also have it tuned for rock. These subs will make any music sound great.
