Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from very loud, not as 'rugged' as description statesi was extremely excited when i replaced my old earthquake DBXIs with these subs due to the lanzars being loud and similar sound quality. However, after breaking them in for a few days i really began to punish them and after about 5 minutes i got the melting voice coil smell. Maybe it is my fault but i figured replacing a 500 watt rms 12 with a 500 watt rms 12 would not involve turning down volume or gain. the subs still sound good and are not blown but i will not push them to that extreme again. BTW i am powering two of them with 2 500 watt rms earthquake powerhouse amps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Solid SubI purchased this speaker to replace my old 12" in my 2.5 Cu.Ft. sealed box, and it is very tight and punchy. Only pushing 60/200w to it, and I am very impressed with its capabilities. I also bridged the amp to 200/400w, but that was too much bass for my liking. Very solid product. Moves alot of air :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best valueThis is the best Sub that has ever existed. My son has two in his car and pounds them every day. They can't be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Bass for the moneyI bought this because of the large magnet, rubber suspension, speaker weight and high SPL. I am using this in an 8' 11.5" Quik-Tube aimed at a corner to produce strong bass down to 28 Hz without requiring much power. Need to use double or triple wall of Quik-Tube to stop vibration. Qts is .36 according to Lanzar. This has a nice pure sound at 1kHz if you do not put it in a tube. I would buy more if it was free freight again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ValueHave two in separate boxes. The excursion is unbelievable. Bass is clear and undistorted even at high power input.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for out in the garage!it hits hard in the garage, i havent tested it in a car yet. i put this in a 1.5 cu ft box ported and it hits hard and it was powered by a 125 watt amp. one thing, it really moves and its loud, but it has a aluminum coil former, i remember a while ago the specs said kapton former. i found out its a aluminum former, take a flashlight a look down the pole piece (gigity)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more detailsthis sub has a very nice build to it. it has a foam surround. and it also has a 130 oz magnet. im not sure if it really has a kapton former, i would check but i dont want to ruin this beast and i really dont care. the magnet cover is a plastic cover. the one thing that i have noticed with this is that it can bottom out, it hasnt happpend to me but it will if you give it more power. this thing works great in a 2.50 cu ft box with a 180 watt amp. my port is a homemade port, 2.5' x 4' x 4' this sub shakes my house

Rated 5 out of 5 by from its me againi have studied this sub for a day now and its really really impressed me. i made some modifications to my box. i added a 2.5 by 3.5 by 4 inch port. this thing moves a lot of air! im not joking it moves more air than my radio shack 15 inch in the same box. this is only powered by 180 watts and the cone barely moves. so its a really impressive sub. it also looks just like the sub in the picture so you know what your gonna see when you get it. i will have a vid soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bassi really enjoyed testing this, i am really suprised that it actually does have 10mm of xmax and has a kapton former. this thing is really nice the surround and spider are not stiff as much as i had expected, the cone barely moves and it rattles my closet door., i will have a video up on you tube soon.
