About the Boston Acoustics G310-44
The G3 Series subwoofers from Boston Acoustics incorporate innovative technologies with advanced materials for low-frequency firepower that'll enhance any type of music. The patented RadialVent® cooling system shunts heat away from the voice coil, and the ultra-rigid chassis provides a rugged platform for high-powered bass.
The 10" G310-44 dual voice coil subwoofer features a rigid copolymer woofer cone and a large compressed foam surround. Extended cone excursion lets these subs pound out ultra-low notes, while the 2-1/2" voice coils handle 375 total watts RMS for bass that hits hard. Boston's unique SureSet fuse configuration makes it easy to switch the total impedance between 2 and 8 ohms, and it protects the voice coils from overload when the music is cranked.
This multi-purpose sub works well in all sizes and types of enclosures. You can install this sub with Boston's GTR Tunable Radiator for a big boost in bass level without a large enclosure. The gasket allows for standard and inverted mounting so you can get creative with your installation.
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.

Boston Acoustics G310-44 reviews
Boston can really make a solid sub! I was used to Rockford but the Boston has as good if not better musical tone to it! They do need to be "Broken In " for a week or so, then they really can start working for you.
Pros: Great musical sound quality, not just a big stick hitting a drum. Well built, cool that you can change the ohms on them with the fuses provided.

Haven't had it long, but so far it's a GREAT sub! Love how well built it seems and how the tinsel leads are stitched in to the spider so they're not just flying around. I'm powering it with a JL 500/1 so of course it has plenty of power going to it. Looking forward to a lot more time with this sub, certainly has to be nearly equivalent to a JL W6.

Awesome sub... Installed in kia optima 2011 in a 0.749 cubic ft angled single sealed box (Metra S110SE) with a very tight fit but worked. Powered by a alpine MRP-M500 500 watts X 1 at 2ohms. I cant believe the sound clarity and thump from jazz to trance to rap out of such a small sealed box. I had dual 12's in a ported 4 ft box back in the day with a 1200 watt amp and it gets almost as loud. I have many friends with aftermarket setups and all cant believe the quality and loudness it can handle for the size. Love the soft parts system in being able to switch the ohms on fly.

This sub puts out very impressive power for a 10, picks up a good spread of frequencies, and is tight enough for virtually any kind of music. You can go from fast- paced music like speed metal to slower, boomier rap and it sounds just as well with both. I'm running 1 of these in a ported box in a '04 Subaru Legacy and have to dial it down to keep from over-powering the door speakers. When cranked up it will shake the body panels on the car next to you, at lower volumes it supplies the much needed low down punch that is missing from the 6.5" door speakers. I am impressed at how this one subwoofer is capable of producing good bass no matter what you're listening to and looks/feels like it was built to last.

Chassis: The Boston Acoustics G3 series high-performance subwoofers are built upon a rigid chassis. It features the patented RadialVent cooling technology which directs airflow around the 2-1/2-inch 4-layer voice coil for increased power handling.
Materials: The G310-44 woofer has a co-polymer woofer cone with a raised dustcap and a large compressed 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 7.5-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 2-3/4 inch peak-to-peak excursion for accurate deep bass output from a small sealed enclosure.
GTR Tunable Radiators: The G310-44 is compatible with the Boston Acoustic GTR Tunable Radiator (item number 065GTR10, sold separately). These passive radiators, when mounted in an enclosure with the G3 woofer, can produce increased bass output without added enclosure volume.
Sealed Enclosure: The ideal sealed enclosure for the G310-44 woofer is 0.5 cubic feet.
Ported Enclosure: The woofer can also be used in a 1.3 cubic foot ported enclosure with a 3" diameter x 10" long port (tuned to 36 Hz).
