Dual DLS12 DLS Series 12" Car Audio Subwoofer
Dual DLS12 DLS Series 12" Car Audio Subwoofer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the priceSounds good, and can't beat it for the price. Seems to distort at higher output but I think it's my amp rather than the speaker causing the problem. I don't turn it up that loud anyway so it's not a problem for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good and cheap 12" subPerformance is fine, I have had no issues. Not getting much bass below 40Hz, but that could be my enclosure, which is on the small side for this sub. I am still playing with the setup. Have given the sub a bit of power (Marantz MA-500 puts out 180W at 4 ohms), and it hasn't complained. Or blown.

Can a 900 Watt Pioneer 2 channel amp run 4 of these speakers?

Asked by: Koty
As long as the amp is stable to 2 ohms on each channel in stereo mode, or 4 ohms in bridged mode this will work fine.

i know how car and home audio is measured differently so what is the power handling on this for home use?

Asked by: speakerfreack
Power handling is no different for car or home applications, this handles the same amount of power for either purpose.
