  1. quality piece! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2020

    This sub by far holds its own! I built a box per the specs ported. It was a dual 4 ohm i figured would be safe at 2 ohms alone on my CAB1600.1. I bought these years ago when this sub was only $129 or 139. Well after many years i did turn the amp ip and the sub hung for a good year at well over 1200 watts rms until one cold winter day way below freezing and a great few songs in a row it just smokes the voicecoil.
    I overpowered it and beat it daily for years with excellent sound quality. What other sub is inexpensive and underrated?
    Cab for quality!

  2. Wow best sub under $400+ 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2020

    I put on of these dual 4 ohm parallel on my CAB 1600.1 in a to spec ported box. WOW for 1 sub this was incredible. I later realized these subs went up in cost to $209 and I can say they are well worth it. I bought this years ago when Cab sold these for 129 I believe!
    So at 2 ohms i think my 1600.1 does 1250rms! This sub sounded fantastic until.....after many years of daily abuse at over watts by 25% constantly. ...the lonely sub gave up finally. Im going to buy two now and run 1a ohm!

    Love the products guys! Thank you

  3. awesome sub 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2019

    Put one of these in a 4th order in my silverado. and it performed above expectations. Threw 800 watts at it and its around 140 db
    Really loud! Would love to have a few more specs like displacement and xmax for easier box design.

  6. Great Bang For Your Buck 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2018

    I have 2 hooked up to a E.D. 9.1 and just built a 4 Cubic foot internal box at 35 htz. They will get nice and low. When you get these make sure you have the right box and you will love them. Had a E.D. 13 av2 before these. But think my tinsel leads went bad. Thinking about getting 2 more fore my Expedition.

  10. Hands down best deal for a quality 1000watt rms sub 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2018

    I bought 2 of these to replace the Alpine type r's I had. These are just as good, they are very well built, sound great, not a single complaint here. I'm beating the shit out of them with a Jl 1000watt amp at 1.7 ohms and I think they would take more, way more. Do not hesitate buy these NOW.
