About the Audiobahn AW1206T
Audiobahn's high-performance Flame Q subwoofer will put the slamdown on your sound system! A thick aluminum basket acts as a launching platform for bass frequencies projected by the flame-embossed aluminum cone and 4-layer 2-1/2" voice coil. The 2" thick PHAT foam surround and monstrous 7-1/2 pound dual magnet structure control woofer movement for bass that'll shake you.
The AW1206T 12" subwoofer features dual 4-ohm voice coils for system versatility it can be wired for 2-ohm (coils wired in parallel), 8-ohm (coils wired in series), or 4-ohm impedance (each coil wired independently). The unique "flame basket" design has the chrome look of a classic car but the sound is totally modern. This sub works best in a ported enclosure; it can also be mounted in a sealed box (see "Enclosure Compatibility" under the Crutchfield Hands-on Research tab).
Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation.Details:

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4-ohm voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2-ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 8-ohm load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4-ohm load.
Cast Basket: The dual voice coil woofers use a polished chrome aluminum 6mm cast basket. This ensures a perfect alignment on each and every woofer. Unlike stamped baskets, the cast basket cannot bend or tweak. Rigidity is important when trying to achieve strong bass and high SPL.
Flame Basket: Audiobahn's Flame series cosmetics are integrated into the cast aluminum basket, the back cover on the magnet, and the cone.
Aluminum Cone: This woofer uses a stamped and balanced aluminum cone. Aluminum cones are light, fast and accurate for excellent sound quality.
Surround: This woofer has a PHAT 2" multi-layer foam surround.
Magnet: This woofer has 120-ounce double-stacked strontium magnets, giving it superior power handling capability.
Vented Back Plate: The back plate is vented to ensure efficient cooling of the voice coil.
4-layer Voice Coil: This woofer has a 2.5" 4-layer voice coil.
Chrome Finish: This subwoofer has a protective chrome finish.
Speaker Terminals: Each voice coil is equipped with Audiobahn's patented Multi-connect Lug Lock speaker terminals, giving you 4 inputs (2+, 2-) for each voice coil. Each terminal can accept bare wire up to 8 gauge. The wire is held in place by tightening Allen Head bolts using the included 4mm Allen wrench.
Wooden Box: Each subwoofer is packaged in one of Audiobahn's trademark wooden boxes.
Recommended Ported Box Volume: For best response and sound quality, Audiobahn recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 2.3 cu/ft with one 4" diameter x 7.25" long port, so that is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. If box space is lacking in the vehicle, Audiobahn suggests a "Space Saver" box can be used with an internal volume of 1.3 cu/ft with one 3" diameter x 6.75" long port. For high performance applications, Audiobahn's "Ultimate SPL" box design has an internal volume of 3.2 cu/ft with two 4" diameter x 12" long ports.
Recommended Sealed Box Volume: This woofer is best suited for ported box applications; with all other factors being equal, the woofer will sound better in a ported box than it will in a sealed box. If you must mount this woofer in a sealed box, Audiobahn recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume within the range of 0.5 cu/ft to 1.25 cu/ft.
Power Handling: The woofer has two 4-ohm voice coils, and each coil can handle up to 550 watts RMS (1100 watts peak).
