Got an urge to get the lows bumping? JBL's GTO subwoofers may just fit the bill. They work great in sealed or ported boxes, so you'll get bass the way you like it. And these compact subs offer a lower profile so they fit into smaller boxes that save you space.
The GTO1214D 12" subwoofer sports a polypropylene cone, with a big rubber surround that allows plenty of cone movement without sacrificing control. A cast aluminum frame and heavy-duty dustcap reinforce the cone for lows that kick without distortion. A special integrated vent keeps the sub's internal workings cool and improves power handling capability. Dual voice coils give you more flexibility for getting the most out of your amplifier.
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 260 and 525 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
