An Infinity Reference subwoofer makes every deep note of your music count. Whether you listen to jazz, rock, hip-hop, country, or all of the above, you'll hear and feel satisfying bass with this sub in your car.

The 10" Reference 1062w offers a classy, no-nonsense look, with a high-gloss polypropylene cone that's accurate and hard-hitting. The durable large-roll rubber surround provides smooth, extended excursion with reduced distortion so you get impressive bass performance. Dual 4-ohm voice coils make it easy to draw big power from a compatible low-impedance amplifier or safely hook up a multi-sub system for heavy-duty low end.

The 1062w's unique motor structure cuts down on the mounting depth, and this sub works in sealed, ported, and bandpass enclosures so you get bass the way you want it. And since you want your investment to last, the 1062w features plenty of internal cooling to protect the sub's inner workings and keep it performing at its peak.

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.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 400 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

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.

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 4.75" 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.

It looks good and sounds good w/ out breaking the bank. Can't beat that.

Pros: RMS is only about 275 so no need for an expensive amp and it only needs a .75cu/ft sealed enclosure so I was able to make a custom fiberglass enclosure in the trunk to save on trunk space.

I put on in the back of my VW Golf in a sealed enclosure wired to 2 ohms. Very tight, very punchy sound. I listen to a lot of EDM and it sounds clear and crisp. Nothing boomy about this sub. Hits very hard for a 10" sub.

Pros: Tight, punchy, crisp sound. Easy to wire to 2 or 4 ohms. Hits hard. Not too expensive.

Cons: None

I have a '12 Dodge Charger that I installed this in. Because of space and flexibility considerations, I went with the 10". I was also more concerned about accuracy than boom, so I used a sealed box at the recommended volume of 0.75 cub. ft. My goal was to get accurate bass that would fill out my upgraded system. I have it wired for 2 Ohm operation and am driving it with a JBL GTO3EZ which can do 500 W RMS, but I have the gains carefully adjusted and the system is tuned. The single voice coil at 4 Ohm and that amp would probably be a perfect match. I have the sub high-passed at 30 Hz and low- passed at 70 Hz with steep 48 dB/octave slopes. With this sealed enclosure and crossover combination I get a very flat response and the bass is very tight, with that good punch I was after. This doesn't drone, but gives good strong sound that will differentiate between notes and instruments, even from the trunk. This complements my 6x9/3.5's nicely and delivers plenty of sound so I have no regrets about using a single 10 versus a 12 or two 10's in a full-size car. I would low-pass this anywhere between 70-110 Hz and I am still deciding where I like it best. If you use this in a large car, I highly recommend using a digital sound processor to time-align and equalize the system. It really helped bring out the best in this speaker and the rest of the system.

Pros: In a sealed enclosure, very musical and clean-sounding. Outstanding value.

Cons: Minimalist design. Gray and plain. Sealed boxes are not cool-looking!

Good Subs

Written By Arant, Saint Matthews, SC on Friday, March 18, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These subs perform nicely and are priced perfect. I still own 2 Infinity Kappa
Perfect 12''s and the 3 10''s that I'm rocking now sound almost equally amazing.

There is one thing though and I'm not sure if it's the Reference series 1600a
amp that I'm running or the speakers but they do seem to knock. Like when you
start to turn them up a little when a really punchy bass note hits the speakers
have this thud sound about them. My other amp isn't 2ohm bridge stable so I
cannot test it out to see if it's the amp or the speakers causing it. Overall
though these subs are definitly worth it. The Kappa perfect 12''s I've been
rockin for over 6 years and never had any problems. Infinity is the way to go.

Couldn't ask for a better sub

Written By Ken, Kenosha, WI on Sunday, March 13, 2011

I had this installed in a Kia Optima and it delivers superior bass response. It can handle as much power as I can give it. Worth every penny!

Exceptionally Smooth and Tight Bass

Written By Steve D, Eureka, California on Monday, January 17, 2011

I installed this woofer in an acoustic suspension enclosure that my wife gave me for
Christmas. The volume of the box is smaller than the recommended size for the driver,
but is very well-built and non-resonant. If you are more into smooth, accurate bass and
care less about maximum SPL, you will love this woofer! It produces very tight bass for
a 12-inch driver with virtually none of the boominess that other woofers have. I have only
owned it for a short time, and as it continues to break in, it is hitting harder and harder
with no distortion. I highly recommend this woofer for anyone looking for smooth,
accurate bass that does not want to spend more than they have to. Infinity continues to
build great speakers year after year, and this woofer is no exception. Thanks
Crutchfield, for providing a great product at a fair price!

Best Bang for Your DOLLARS!

Written By Dave, Chesterfield, MI on Saturday, June 26, 2010

I purchased this sub to replace it's five year old sibling 1052w DVC. The 1052 took five years of extreme play for hours per day due to I have a long ride to work, it finally gave way to the sub gods and needed replacing. I have astounded people with the amazing clearity and hit from this little single 10 inch sub! I purchased the 1062W, performed the break in procedure and was even more pleased with the amazing performance from this unit versus the old one, and that unit was amazing!

I wil tell you that alot of my friends purchased other BIG NAME and BIG MONEY subs that did not sound, hit, or last like this infinity, I was going to get the Kappa Series but it would not fit my box!

I am Very Happy and would recommend this sub to any and all audiophiles who appreciate Quality and Value!

Exceptional Value

Written By PGAWest, Knoxville, TN on Monday, May 10, 2010

I purchased a pair of these and installed them in a sealed box. These are very efficient
and hard-hitting subwoofers. I think you'll be hard pressed to beat the performance for
the price.

Sub-woofers

Written By Anonymous, Virginia Beach, Va on Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These sub-woofers are incredible. I have two of these being pushed a kenwood mono amp rated at 600 watts max power and they thump. The bass was so loud that I had to dial the amp down quite a bit because it was so loud. Don't hesitate to get these speakers.

Very impressed with this speaker running 2 ohms in a sealed box and this
thing thumps pretty good. Awesome deal and a very good bang for your
buck. Check it out

We've verified that these enclosures are a good match for this subwoofer.
It's critical to have good wire, and none is included with the sub.
Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.

Yes [ Anthony C.  Dec 22, 2014 ]
I personally wouldn't try it, but I feel like if you were to do it without blowing the sub you'd have to lower the wattage you have going to the sub. You will also have to have a 1-ohm stable amp. [ Mitchell  Dec 21, 2014 ]
No, dual voice coils at 4 ohms each will enable you to wire it down to two ohms, if wired parallel. [ LINDA  Dec 21, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  Nov 06, 2014 ]  Staff
