Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great subUsed this sub to replace an old powered acoustic research 12". Sounds much much better than the one I took out. Kind of wish I had a bigger amp running it now. Great replacement though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AwesomeThis thing does rattle anything that is loose in your vehicle. For the price this thing is amazing, I actually outfitted my car with all Lanzar drivers. The door speakers are good, but this thing rounds out the sound so nicely. I am only running 200 watts into even though it says 500 rms, and this moves air. At decent gain levels there is no peaking or distortion at all, just nice clean even bass. I'm sure for more $$ you could go for a driver that sucks the air out of your car, but this thing is a beast for personal listening, can feel it in your chest for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SubIts a great cheap sub. When I first installed it, my car had no rattles at all. Now 6 months in, and I have panels all over the car that have vibrated loose. I have it mounted in a custom box in a Pontiac Fiero, so ya I have a tiny cabin, running a 4500w Peak, 2200w rms amp. (Amp actually only makes about 1600w real power though) I can run this sub to the wall and it just keeps coming back for more. It has not melted down under the sub test files I have. Nice good clean bass. I don't think there is a sub on the planet than be had for cheaper that sounds this good. If you don't have a lot of cash, I can't recommend this sub enough. Heck even if you do have a lot of cash, buy this sub and spend your extra money on a bigger amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 OhmI couldn't be more happy with this driver!I built a 'self-powered' sub-woofer enclosure for my home theater (Used a Yung 300 watt plate amp) and the results were (For the price) astounding.The driver can handle everything I throw at it. No break-up, no bottoming-out, no distortion, just clean rock-solid low frequencies!And as other have written, this driver is meant for a smallish SEALED enclosure. (SEALED!)I'm sure there are much better subs out there, but for the $$, there is NO WAY you can go wrong with this!

Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm

Optimal ported enclosure size for a pair these

I would like to get a pair of these and build an enclosure for them to go into. What would be the size (cubic feet) of a ported enclosure that 2 of the Lanzar MAX12 would sound best in? A big box is fine with me (what size port/tube)?thanks for the help
Asked by: deepaudiophile
Running these through BassBox6Pro, I come up with a 4.3 cu. ft. enclosure, 4" diameter port, 3" in length. This will give you an F3 of 45hz. Lanzar does not provide enough data to fully maximize the speaker enclosure, but the above specs should work well.
