Nice Sub
4 Star Review   By member toloudforyou - Jan 3, 2008   

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.

5 Star Review     

Strengths: hit hard and can take power

is a great buy if you dont have a lot of money and is very powereful. even one of these can give you the amount of bass you are looking for for the price.

Great Subs
5 Star Review   By member JRPReviewed - Apr 5, 2006   

Strengths: Clean And Powerful

These subs are Great. Hooked it up with a alpine m450 amp and a Pioneer DEH-P80MP Deck, which is great too, and its clean, clear, and powerful. Reccomend them especially if your on a budget. Great buy.
