Our take on the Infinity 1052w

by Dominic Devito
Infinity

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

No matter what kind of music you listen to, count on Infinity Reference Series subs to deliver the power of the bass instruments in true-to-life fashion. The Reference 1052w 10" subwoofer adds impact to your tunes with a lightweight cone that responds quickly and accurately, so you'll enjoy every hard-hitting beat.

Infinity built this sub for power and accuracy, with a large-roll rubber surround that extends and controls cone movement, along with a spider design that applies more force to the cone as it travels to its limit. Behind the scenes, the 1052w features a specially designed basket that allows plenty of cone excursion while minimizing the sub's depth.

Built-in air vents cool the sub's internal workings for excellent reliability. Dual 4-ohm voice coils give you more options for wiring, whether you're building a multi-sub setup or drawing more power out of your amp.

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most 2-channel car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation. Most mono amps are stable down to 2 ohms.

Enclosure Compatibility

Features

High-efficiency Polypropylene Woofer Cone: This lightweight and popular material is used to ensure maximum woofer efficiency. The benefit is high output with modest amplifier power.

Large-roll Rubber Surround: The large-roll rubber surround provides optimum cone-edge suspension and absorbs distortion that may travel up the cone edge, ensuring clean, tight bass.

Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4-ohm voice coils that offer flexibility in wiring. When the voice coils are wired in parallel with each other, the woofer presents a 2-ohm mono load. When the voice coils are wired in series with each other, the woofer presents an 8-ohm mono load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4-ohm load.

Proprietary Basket: The unique in-board motor structure reduces the overall mounting depth, without limiting enclosure options.

Vented Polepiece: The vented polepiece provides additional cooling of the motor structure, thus increasing power handling.

Progressive Spider: The subwoofer uses a progressive spider, which provides better control at excursion limits than more commonly used linear spiders. The result is reduced distortion at high output levels.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box Volume: Infinity recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.75 cu/ft. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle more power, and provide more accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Ported Box Volume: Infinity recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.75 cu/ft with one 3" diameter x 9" long port. Ported (or vented) enclosures provide better efficiency in the 40-50Hz range, and are suitable for use with small amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of sound quality at low frequencies (40Hz and below), and control.

Bandpass Box Volume: Infinity recommends a bandpass enclosure with an internal volume of 2.0 cu/ft. The enclosure has a sealed chamber volume of 1.0 cu/ft and a ported chamber volume of 1.0 cu/ft with one 4" diameter x 7.875" long port. Bandpass enclosures often provide the most output available from any amplifier and subwoofer combination at the expense of sonic accuracy. If sheer SPL is desired most, a bandpass enclosure is recommended.

Buy this Sub!!

Written By Shaun, Great Falls, MT on Wednesday, October 07, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased one of these subs for my 04' Trailblazer EXT, I built my own box using 3/4" industrial strength particle board, wood glue, silicone, & lots of 2" hex-head screws, anyway, I just put this in yesterday with a Rockford amp pushing around 300watts, it hits hard!! I have had single 10" systems before but this puts them all to shame, nothing compares, the value of this woofer is phenomenal, JL, Rockford, Boston, Polk, you name it they cannot compete at this price, I was just buying to round out my system but know I will have to put an amp on my mids & highs unbelieveible, this sub is worth the price hands down, I can't imagine what two of these would sound like on 2,000 watts!!

Great Value!

Written By Jonathan, Edmond, OK on Saturday, August 29, 2009
 
I just bought 2 of these and had them installed in my 07 Sierra Denali. They were an outstanding price and they sound phenomenal. I'm powering them with the Clarion DPX2251 that I also purchased from Crutchfield at a great price. The gain is only up about 30% and these subs really hit hard. Can't wait until they're broken in! I would highly recommend these.

Awsome sound quality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These was a great buy, I bout a pair of these for my truck. I have them hooked up to a 200W Pioneer amp and the bass sound premium. I tried them out by playing some old school DJ Magic Mike, lots of bass. Nice, no rattle just sweet base. I recommend these.
