About the Focal RSB-300
Focal has built a reputation for building great speakers for home, car, or recording studio, and our customers definitely give their subs high marks. Their Auditor Series RSB-300 12" subwoofer delivers impressive bass, maintaining accuracy even when you're pushing your system hard. The sub's two voice coils allow you to wire it for 2- or 8-ohm impedance, giving you more flexibility when you expand your bass setup.
Built to take it
The RSB-300 features a polypropylene cone with a butyl rubber surround that's made to handle up to 300 watts RMS. Large vents in the sub's steel basket help dissipate the heat generated by extended bass sessions. This Focal fits into just about any kind of system, whether you prefer tight bass from a sealed box or fatter bass from a ported enclosure.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 225 and 450 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Focal RSB-300 reviews
This is an excellent sub. I have it running on a 600w MTX amp and it hits hard. Also blends really well with the Focal PS 130 V that I have installed. Well worth the money!
Pros: Hits hard. Produces tight bass when it needs to, but has a bit of boom as well.
Cons: None so far
