About the Boston Acoustics G212-44 DVC
Highly efficient bass performance
Boston's mission: build a sub that will deliver loads of bass when connected to a moderately-powered amplifier. Efficient G2 subwoofers accomplish the mission, borrowing many design features from the top-of-the-line G5 Series subs, with the quality construction you expect from a Boston Acoustics speaker.
Advanced materials and construction
The G212-44 12" woofer features a thick foam surround that lets its cone move freely, for efficient output and warm-sounding bass. RadialVent cooling improves power handling by using the cone's motion to pump hot air away from the sub's internal structure. And the dual voice coil design gives you several options for wiring up your sub, so you get the most out of your system. The SureSet terminals come equipped with two fuses to help protect the voice coils during momentary overdrive, and allow you to change the woofer out quickly in case a fuse is blown.
Works in sealed and ported enclosures
This subwoofer is optimized for use in small, sealed boxes ideal if you want tight, accurate bass. Like a little more boom? No problem, it's suitable for larger ported boxes as well. Whatever your goal, Boston G2 subs are ready to take on the challenge.
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.

Chassis: The Boston Acoustics G2 series subwoofers are built upon a rigid stamped steel chassis. It features the patented RadialVent cooling technology which directs airflow around the 2-1/2-inch voice coil for increased power handling.
Materials: The G21244 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 5-amp 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. Use of the standard automotive style fuses allows you to quickly service the woofer in case a fuse is blown during usage. Note: The fuses do not protect against voice-coil failure resulting from long term high power abuse.
Terminals: The woofer has rugged spring post terminals that accept up to 8-gauge bare wire or pin connectors.
Long Excursion: The woofer has a 2-inch peak-to-peak excursion for accurate deep bass output from a small sealed enclosure.
Sealed Enclosure: The G21244 woofer is optimized for use in a small sealed enclosure with a 1.0 cu. ft. internal volume.
Ported Enclosure: The woofer can also be used in a 2.0 cu. ft. ported enclosure with a 4" diameter, 13" long port, and tuned to 34Hz.
