Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio MM 1042 DVC

Polk Audio rethinks their legendary Mobile Monitor Series subs.

They use advanced engineering and optimized components to reproduce your sound with uncompromising accuracy, and Polk built these marine-certified subs to take some serious abuse.

Advanced materials and engineering

Polk Audio rethinks their legendary Mobile Monitor Series subs. Their MM1 Series subwoofers offer superior performance from lighter materials, so you'll get the impact you want without the extra weight of a conventional sub. They use advanced engineering and optimized components to reproduce your sound with uncompromising accuracy, and Polk built these marine-certified subs to take some serious abuse.

Efficient power handling

The MM 1042 DVC 10" subwoofer handles up to 400 watts RMS, with a titanium-coated polymer cone that'll stand the test of time. This sub's dual 4-ohm voice coils allow you to wire your system to draw max power from your mono amp or to safely hook up multiple subs. The fiberglass-reinforced ABS basket resists flexing during heavy excursion, so your sub hits hard without distorting. The sub's inner workings are designed to handle the stress of heavy bass, so go ahead and turn it up.

Marine-certified

This sub has earned Advanced Ultra-Marine certification and an IP56 rating, which means it'll deliver powerful bass in some challenging conditions. The composite cone, waterproof surrounds, stainless steel mounting hardware, and ABS basket all resist corrosion, and the sub even features weep holes for proper drainage.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 300 and 600 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

I insltallled this sub in an MTX Thunder enclosure on a 2008 GMC Sierra. The bass was clean, crisp, and loud. It was a big improvement over my previous sub and enclosure. This sub performs a lot better than it's size. Would purchase again.

Great Subwoofer!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, for me anything audio always starts at Crutchfield. There is nothing bad to say about the company, great service, great products, you can't go wrong with them. As for this sub, I installed one in my GMC Sierra extended cab. I couldn't ask for anything more, the sound this sub puts out is unbelievable. I'm actually planning on getting a couple for my boat to replace what's on it now, since all Polk audio speakers are marine grade.

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sub... I am powering it with the Sound Ordinance M-1500 in the box Crutchfield recommended. It sounds amazing. Hits hard. Fast response if you listen to music with fast double bass and ultra deep lows for other styles. Can't go wrong with this speaker.

Pros: Great sound, good fast response

Cons: Can overheat with overpowered amp running 2ohm mono. Amp overheats too... Cut back bass a bit to prevent or just wait for the amp to cool and come back on from protection mode.

Clean bass

justin from Phenix city, AL on 8/10/2017

This Polk definitely handles more power than previous model. The bass is fantastic, incredibly smooth and rich. The responsiveness of the woofer is great also. I couldn't be more happier, its an awesome sound quality sub.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Features

Dual 4Ω Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4Ω voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load. When wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω load.

Terminals: The woofer has heavy duty spring terminals that will accept single banana plugs, pin connectors, and bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Ultra-Marine Certified: Polk MM Series speakers are built to withstand exposure to moisture and UV rays, so they work well in boats and cars (IP56 rated).

Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.

Sealed Box Volume: Polk recommends a sealed enclosure between 1.0 ft³ and 2.4 ft³.

Ported Box Volume: Polk recommends a ported enclosure between 1.25 ft³ and 1.75 ft³.
