About the Memphis Audio VIV1422
High volume, high performance
High volume, high performance
Looking for no-holds-barred, mind-bending bass for your elite system? Memphis Audio designed their top-of-the-line SixFive Series VIV1422 14" subwoofer to handle up to 2200 watts RMS, so you can count on massive, thunderous low-end reinforcement. Everything about this speaker is engineered for reliable performance in high-output systems.
Built to take it, built to dish it out
The VIV1422 sub features a paper/fiber laminate cone to give you bass that's warm and clean, with a double-stitched surround and reinforced double spider that are made to handle the stress of high-volume playback. The sub also features direct venting of the huge 7-1/2" voice coil to keep your sub running smooth, while the 320-ounce magnet allows this unique sub to thrive on power that would reduce other subs to shreds.
Dual voice coils
The dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 1-ohm impedance to get maximum power output, or for 4-ohm impedance if you're using multiple subs. Have fun out there!!
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 1650 and 3300 watts at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Dual Voice Coils: This woofer features two 2Ω voice coils, allowing impedance flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω load.
Terminals: The two sets of spring post terminals are on the same side of the subwoofer. They will accommodate bare speaker wire up to 8 gauge. They will also accommodate many single banana plugs, but the post is slightly recessed, so some single banana plugs will not fit well. I was able to force a pair of standard dual banana plugs (3/4") into the posts, but they did not fit well.
Sealed Box Volume: Memphis Audio recommends a sealed box volume of 1.5 ft³. A sealed enclosure design gives the smoothest response with increased energy at the lowest frequencies.
Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume is 2.25 ft³ with a 6" x 4" x 23" slot port; this yields a tuning frequency of 32 Hz.
