Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! VERY impressed!!I had the SUB-120 for a year or so and it wasn't giving me enough low end at all. I found this kit and was knew how well 15" drivers perform on the low end. I've been competing with car audio for years and I absolutely love the low end bass. Unfortunately, I received the kit with the cabinet smashed up pretty bad. This is all UPS's fault due to their poor handling... FORTUNATELY, this is one of the occasions where the PE customer service shines. I was sent a fresh cabinet the day of the call which was made immediately after I opened the packages. It arrived the NEXT DAY!! This woofer continues to make my jaw drop. Properly crossed over, I've got them flexing my closet doors and windows. Very efficient setup. The bass boost is off as well. My room is only about 170sqfeet and it's really filling. Not boomy, pure accuracy. For the price people, order this monster. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Not only did I at least double the output, I got way more low end extension than I thought I was going to get.Receiver - Denon AVR-589

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my second sub..Have added this to my setup to match one already in place.Using these for 2 channel music. The addition of this second sub has proven to be well worth the cost. Both are set up for bass enhancement for blues and classical music.Work very well in my room with my gear so I'm pretty happy with them.Parts Express did an excellent job of getting this shipped very fast with no problems.These work very well considering their price point. Try it! You will like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room filling bassOrdered on a Sunday and recieved by that Tuesday!! Minor problem as no screws were included to assemble the unit. Less than 20 minutes from opening package to testing with my system. Fills my large 600 sq ft room with clear sharp bass. If you push the unit hard the woofer will bottom out, lowered the gain to eliminate the issue. Now it's time to fix the buzzing from the pictures on the walls ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakerI am not an audiophile, but I enjoy good music. My friend suggested it (he is much closer to an audiophile). We set this up (I assisted him) but to be honest, it is 30 minutes of work that even I could do alone unassisted. Other than screwing in the speakers and amp, there are two plugs (audio positive/negative) that you need to connect. That's it. The box sounds great (comes in two separate shipments).The only thing I would have liked is a simple document explaining the knobs, switches, and plugs on the back of the amp. Other than where I plug in the cables to the receiver I don't know much about the other items.Still, for the price, I am extremely happy. I got some awesome base!

How to Hook up?

How would I hook this up to a newer style reviver with the single dedicated audio RCA style subwoofer output?
Asked by: cardude355
You simply run a single subwoofer cable from the sub pre-out on your receiver to either of the two inputs on the back of the amplifier. Then simply adjust the frequency and gain until it sounds the best to you.

Can you put this setup in a vehicle?

Could you have some more in stock before July?
Asked by: dgrizzle13
The amplifier is made to operate only on A/C mains power, not automotive 12v power. In concept, you could get around that by running an inverter - but you would need a very beefy inverter to keep up (a "250 watt" inverter would not do it) and that's a sloppy solution, better to use an automotive enclosure and automotive amplifier.

adding polyfill

Playing with WinISD the driver included requires an 8cuft enclosure to obtain a .7qtc value. I see someone else mentioned this under this woofers q and a. I see if it were in an enclosure of that size it would not handle the amplifiter properly. My question is. in a 2.5 cuft enclosure the qtc is at 1.04 according to WinISD. does that mean this is a boomy subwoofer. I would like to use it for music over movies. Does it come with additional polyfill and would you suggest adding more to bring the qtc value down or does it sound good as is? If adding polyfill is needed how much and is it included?
Asked by: steven F
The small box is need for this driver to handle a 240 watt amp. It will barely exceed xmax in this setup by around .5 mm with full power. Adding fill and lowering the Q will increase the chances of the driver being over driven. There should not be a boomy quality for this small enclosure, because an 80hz LPF drops the transfer function to 0 and gives and F3 of 39hz.

What's the composition of the woofer & surround?

Also, is the enclosure sealed, or vented? Lastly, what kind of feet come with the kit for the enclosure?My thanks for your answers in advance!:)
Asked by: RollingThundaar
Treated paper cone, rubber surround, sealed. The picture shows little rubber feet on the cabinet, not 100% sure about that one.

Frequency Response

I just bought this unit. It is only less than a day old. Seems that it does not go that low. Could I be expecting too much from it due to it being a 15 inch but a sealed unit? I will run a few bass sweeps tomorrow but it seems to hit about 30hz or so. My room is larger at 25 x 18 x 8high. I need to get out the spl meter in case I just cannot hear that low. Anyone else care to chime in how low theirs is hitting? How long does the woofer take to break in? I know sealed cannot go as low as ported and im assuming even with a 15 inch driver it doesnt dig that deep.
Asked by: steven F
This has been explained in previous Q&A's for this product. The F3 is 40hz. If you have a large room you will not get much gain down low. You need a ported sub if you want output closer to 20hz for cheap.
