Dual ALB12 12" Amplified Car Audio Subwoofer

Dual's powered ALB12 12" subwoofer takes the hassle out of installing an aftermarket subwoofer in your car, truck, or SUV by building the amplifier into the bass reflex, tuned port enclosure. You get all of the bass that's missing from your stock factory car audio system without having to hire a professional installer!

The ALB12 features a 12" polypropylene cone subwoofer with foam surround that's protected by a distinctive double bar grill, an integrated 300 watt max power amplifier with built-in 40 to 160 Hz (6 dB/octave) variable crossover and phase control, as well as a ported enclosure that's built to consume very little space. Power and ground connections are built to accept up to 12 AWG wire, with a remote turn-on connection also provided. Input sensitivity is adjustable from 50 mV to 3 volts for use with many different line-level sources. Dimensions: 14.17" H x 18.9" W x 11" D.

Dual ALB12 12" Amplified Car Audio Subwoofer
Dual ALB12 12" Amplified Car Audio Subwoofer is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but wrong type of enclosure.Purchased this for the obvious reason, completion of the lower frequency range in a Subaru Impreza hatchback (6 speaker); which fits perfect. At this point I have already ripped out the ridiculous stock deck (Clarion, Canadian version) and replaced with a Pioneer FH-X701BT (well worth the exchange and crazy easy like Subaru expects it from the customer).Now, this enclosure is an estimated .75 cube feet net (minus sub,port,amp) with an awkward flared port about 6" long that chokes to about 2 1/8" in the middle so I don't know actual tuning, but... looking at the recommended enclosure volumes for this sub, 0.75 is the bare minimum 'sealed' mini enclosure, from 1.25-2 cubes for ported. So why did Dual port this enclosure? As is, it sounds terrible, roll off is steep from 60hz down and a huge unwanted bump from 80-120hz due to the poor tuning. Setting the Pioneer head units sub low pass filter to 50hz yielded BARELY any output. You know that old saying 'stick a sock in it', that's exactly what I did, took a pair of woolies and stuffed in that port.... huge difference! Now the roll off is much less dramatic and more solid sound without that bump. Set deck LP to 63hz and high pass the same for door components, left sub amps variable crossover full on so not to conflict with decks filter.Overall sound is poor though, what one would expect from a cheap polypropylene woofer, lack of detail and timber with everything sounding like the same note. Hence why it sounds best 63hz and down letting the components carry everything else before they peter off.Power/volume attributes, if you have your components amplified don't even bother looking at this rig, anything but the base 14watts RMS of an after market deck and this enclosure will fall short on output to match it. The compact size and low power yields low SPL but it is a budget friendly alternative if one is willing tweak settings. I may take apart and build a proper (larger) sealed enclosure. I don't believe the 100 watt RMS stat either, seems more like 50. Quite aesthetic though.If this fits your niche hit checkout, if you have options move onto a system that is actually capable of producing 'subwoofer' frequencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, price, and ease of install!Just installed this unit in my 2005 Dodge Ram truck behind the center front seat. Fits perfectly, and using it with the factory radio/cd this baby kicks! I couldn't be happier ! Along with the upgraded door speakers, this factory setup sounds like a high end car system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Alternative, No ComplaintsThis amplified sub-box only costs $99! It's like a drum with a hole in it, you can't beat it.Some reviews complain about the longevity of the product. For me it's been great so far, only the first week. If it fails, I'll try to update this review. I think it's a great alternative for the money and it sounds great in my van, under the seat. It took some creativity to fit it there. For $99, you can't go wrong. Good looking, too. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it didn't cost enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of punch PLUS adds to mid range sound too!This is the best buy for the buck! Put it in the jump seat/fold down deck of F150 extra cab, threw a flannel shirt over it so no one will steal it and.....K -BOOM! I love this thing, very glad I bought it!

Is this only for vehicles

Asked by: Hima
This is intended for vehicles, yes. It requires 12 VDC for power with about 15 amps of current draw. We offer power supplies that will handle this, but for the price of the sub and the power supply you would be much farther ahead using a standard powered subwoofer.

Would this fit behind the set of a 1992 Ford F-150 regular cab?

Asked by: Dwrig
Unfortunately we don't have a chart that shows which vehicles this will fit in. You will have to measure the space behind the seat to see if this will fit properly. The overall depth of this subwoofer is 11".
