About the Polk Audio db124DVC
Get the power and precision you want from your subwoofer, with the reliability that comes from a name you trust. Polk's db (Dynamic Balance) series subwoofers are engineered with state-of-the-art technologies, combining the best materials so you get top-notch performance and clean, smooth bass.
The Polk db124DVC 12" subwoofer features a polypropylene cone, shaped like a dish for extra rigidity. The cone is encircled by a tough Santoprene rubber surround that shrugs off the harmful effects of exposure to sun, moisture, and extreme temperature changes this sub will stand the test of time. The Kapton voice coil former is triple-vented so the sub stays cool when the bass gets hot. And you don't have to limit these speakers to your car they've passed tough environmental testing that certifies them for marine use as well.
The db124DVC comes with dual 4-ohm voice coils for system wiring flexibility 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).
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.

Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4-ohm voice coils that offer flexibility in wiring. When the voice coils are wired in parallel with each other, the woofer presents a 2-ohm mono load. When the voice coils are wired in series with each other, the woofer presents an 8-ohm mono load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4-ohm load.
Polypropylene Cone: The cone is made with polypropylene, which provides durability while being lightweight and rigid. The cone is supported by a vented cone/coil coupler, which stiffens the cone for greater mechanical stability and lower distortion.
Santoprene Surround: The Santoprene surround is resistant to extremes in temperature, humidity, and exposure to sunlight for excellent long term reliability.
NOMEX Spider: The flat NOMEX Spider allows extended linear motion while providing highly reliable mechanical and thermal stability.
Triple-vented Kapton Voice Coil Former: Triple venting of the 4-layer Kapton Voice Coil Former, Cone/Coil Coupler and Pole Piece contribute to the high power handling and reliability of the db Series subs.
Marine Certified: Polk db Series speakers are built to withstand exposure to moisture and UV rays, so they work well in boats and cars.
