Lanzar MAX12D 12" Subwoofer Dual VC is rated 4.3077 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from To Shawn from San DiegoYou are complaining because you blew it the first day when you fed it more than its rms power(and most likely not even clean power,probably a dirty clipped signal)Learn to read the spec sheet and your equipment will last longer. These are some of the best bang for the buck drivers you will ever find.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blown first dayI ran a single Lanzar MAX12D 12" Subwoofer Dual VC driven by a HiFonics Zeus. 300W to each coil. Blown the first day i connected the sub. Never overexcurted. No continuity across either coil. Coil smelled crispy. Major junk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speaker for the priceI installed these in my truck and they thump real strong. I was skeptical on how they would perform, but I'm glad I took the chance. I don't constantly ride around with my music at full blast so I don't know how long they'll last like that and I don't enter competitions, but they sound like they're willing to be put to the test. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice woofer for the moneyThese woofers perform very well. They are well constructed and have a nice appearance for display. The distressed driver surface translates into the equivalence of a larger diameter driver. They perform best at 4 ohms with an amp rated at 400 watts per channel minimum. I would not exceed 400 watts because the drivers are coated paper. The only negative is the foam driver surround that is easily damaged if something abrasive rubs against them. If you are taking these speakers in and out of a car protect the foam that surrounds the driver with a grill and you will be OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word...AWESOME!I've been playing around with stereo equipment for years, and I must say this subwoofer has proven to be much better than almost all the subs I have installed over those years. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much...was I fooled. For the money there aren't many subs that can keep pace with it. I'm currently powering this sub with an MTX 800 watt mono amp at 2ohms...it handles the power supperbly. Don't let the name fool you, Lanzar has been aroud long before many of the current Brand names. Thanks a mil Lanzar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for car audioThis is one of the best subs I have used. I used this for a sound system in my truck and it hits very hard. I am running 2 amps on it with a sealed box with some custa stuf in it, and it hits perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from super cheap in construction and pricemy friend bought 2 from ebay they are a joke. all new lanzar stuff sucks. Was it ever good?? Opti line is the only stuff from them I have ever seen worth anything. He had a mtx 1000 watt amp that I sold him a while back to power them and that one amp was making them bottom out, pure junk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economy ThumperJust installed two of these in a friends car for his daughter. It is a Christmas present of sorts. She is going to be one happy girl.We went with the Goldwood twin ported box. I sealed the ports as suggested in the Lanzar spec sheet. I did not fill the boxes and probably should have.Great bang for the buck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT SUBSI bought a pair of these about a year ago & the only thing i didn't like is that the so called rubber boot [plastic]had fell off when i was testig them.I used an industrial glue to put them back on & have had no problem since!I put them in a 2-cu.ft. ported box,Tuned at 50hz.I'm currently pushing them with a Alpne V-12 5 channel w/ a pyramid 3-way x-over.They pound so hard that i keep the bass on my radio -3db so i don't go deaf "huh"? I was very satisfied with the looks & performance. These subs ROCK!THANKS P.E.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for your buckFor $40 this sub is hard to beat. I put one in a 6th oprder bandpass, and i was surprised. It got loud, fairly low, sound quality was nothing special but again for the price i was happy. It flexed the jeep's roof about 1.5", off 400 watts. That was a little too much power for it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boom for the BuckI'm 30 and I've used quite a few different subwoofers such as JL Audio, Cerwin-Vega, Pioneer, Audio Art, Hollywood Sound Labs, Kicker, and I must say I am thoroughly impressed with this sub. I did get it on sale recently, but even at it's current price it is still a bargain. I'm running an Audio Art HC100 bridged with one sub @ 2 Ohms. I think I'll install the other one this weekend that I bought and parallel 'em to 1 Ohm!!!
