Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
RadialVent Cooling Technology:
The Boston Acoustics G1 series subwoofers feature patented RadialVent cooling
technology, which directs airflow around the 2-inch/4-layer voice coil for increased
Materials: The G112-44 woofer
has a co-polymer woofer cone with a raised polypropylene dustcap and a large
foam surround. The wrap-around gasket gives you a good seal whether you
top-mount or bottom-mount the woofer.
SureSet: The speaker terminals
are equipped with two 4-amp mini ATC fuses for selecting between series or
parallel voice-coil operation. When both fuses are used, the woofer is
configured for parallel operation, and the woofer's impedance is 2 ohms. When
one fuse is used in the center slots, the woofer is configured for series
operation, and the woofer's impedance is 8 ohms. There is no need to change the
position of the speaker wire in order to switch between parallel and series
wiring. The fuses also provide voice coil protection under transient conditions
such as accidental momentary overdrive.
Note: The fuses do not
protect against voice-coil failure resulting from long term high power
Terminals: The woofer has
rugged spring post terminals that accept up to 8-gauge bare wire or pin
Long Excursion: The woofer has
a 1-3/4-inch peak-to-peak excursion for accurate deep bass output from a small
Sealed Enclosure: The G112-44
woofer is optimized for use in a small sealed enclosure with a 1.0 cu. ft.
Ported Enclosure: The woofer
can also be used in a 2.0 cu. ft. ported enclosure with a 4" diameter, 13" long
port, tuned to 34Hz.
