Jensen DUBW12 12" Subwoofer

Big bass with urban good looks.

Big bass and good looks

The 12" DUBw12 subwoofer features a reinforced injection-molded polypropylene cone for optimum stiffness and maximum low-frequency output. Teamed with a high damping rubber surround, the sub gives you DUB-approved performance in a stylish and affordable package. The DUBw12 also features special venting for heat dissipation, a ceramic-ferrite magnet, and a heavy-duty stamped steel basket to give rigidity to the entire structure. The DUB-derived cosmetics include new dust caps, a new finish and a stylish grille, so you get big bass and urban good looks in one package.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 260 and 525 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

For the price it is a good sub,Never been a Jensen Fan but I figured I would give this a try for a cheap sub, hits clean and handles a decent amount of power. Have it running on an Alpine mono amp 450 RMS. Cant beat it for the price

Pros: Good price, decent sound

James from Richmond, VA on 10/9/2018

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I will preface this with a little relevant backstory. I purchase this as a replacement for a Kenwood KFC-W12PS sub that I originally bought and paired to a Kenwood Excelon X801-5 amplifier (nice amp, will be reviewing once I have it fully connected to an acceptable array of speakers.) If you look at the stats of the sub and the amp you might notice an issue. The sub cant handle the full power of that amp. So naturally, after cooking that $100 sub (also worth noting that all Kenwood amps on this site put out too much power for this sub, at least by its lonesome. Should work really well if you get two and run them in series, but dont bother), I sought a replacement that could handle the RMS wattage of the amp. I looked over the Jensen several times as I've never really cared for or trusted the brand, but I was bitten by the bass bug and I needed it back, and the price was right. Figured it would do until I could find a more suitable upgrade. For the price it couldnt be good but I was certain it would be better than listening to four 6 1/2"er's struggling with low frequencies on my 44 mi. commute. So I put it in, dialed it in, and something interesting happened. It sounded Just as clear and as strong as the Kenwood. I don't know why this sub is this price. Mqaybe its the way it looks. Its ugly. Way too shiny it looks like a toy. But its a better sub than the Kenwood. Hits just as hard and clear, and can handle a solo gig on a Kenwood amp for under half the price. get it while you can.

Pros: Hits as well as speakers twice its price. Well judging by the site it used to be twice the price. Get it while you can Handles more power than a lot of other subs in its price range, even if it was still full price.

Cons: Ugly. This won't bother everyone, but car audio is no longer JUST about sound anymore. If you are really conscious about brand and appearance, this could be a deal breaker. The shiny piano black wont hold well in the trunk of a car, especially if you still use your trunk. Of course a band pass box could mitigate that as well as using the grilles, which also don't tickle my fancy. I chose not to use it. I have had it for about a month now and its still going strong. the long term is still out.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have not received this product yet as it is to arrive at Crutchfield on October 8th. I had purchased a 12" Jensen subwoofer and was calling and asking if it would fit my 2002 Tahoe. The salesman seemed to be very knowledgeable and assured me that this I2 " Jensen subwoofer, that was good for 1400 watts, was more than my Tahoe could handle. He explained that I would need a different amplifier, than the one that was in my truck, to provide the necessary power to dive this massive speaker. I told him I just wanted to replace the one that came with my truck and did not want to buy a large amplifier. He suggested the Polk DUBw12 which is an 8" speaker that will fit my truck with just having to possibly drill some new holes and instructions would be mailed that would tell me exactly what I need to do to complete the change. I look forward to receiving this new speaker and listening to the difference it will make in my listening pleasure.

First Woofer I recieved had a manufacture defect and left me extremely disappointed when it had quit in less than a day, but after informing Crutchfield of my situation they were quick to make things right and send me a replacement. After hooking up the new woofer it thumps better than most I've owned before. Would have definitely been a 5/5 if I didn't receive a dud the first time.

Pros: Clean, mirror rattling bass

Cons: Bad voice coil on first woofer

Best bang for your buck. Can't tell the difference between $500 subs or these. Just buy a decent amp. Don't go cheap on the amp.

Cons: None I can think of.

Will get the job done for sure! I used mine to replace a home theatre sub. I abused mine with an 1100W RMS amp, and let 'er rip. In an appropriately sized sealed box, it hit hard, was accurate, and got the cops called out to enjoy my movies a time or two. For the money, you just can't go wrong. Yeah, it's not pretty, and the grill is hideous, but that isn't the point, now is it?

Good first sub

Daryl from King George, VA on 1/21/2018

A good entry level sub. Solid build quality and good bass notes. I have two subs in a 1.2 cu ft per chamber sealed enclosure with polyfill and they are powered by a mono 250w rms amp. Plenty of power to do the job and not overpower the sub. Don't expect competition level performance or high spl levels however for the price point you cannot beat the Dub woofers. Just make sure to break them in before pushing them hard.

Pros: Solid woofer, nice bass, inexpensive. Comes with woofer protection grilles.

Cons: None at this time.

So much better than I expected. At the sale price I had no great expectations. I know (they) don't recommend using car speakers for home use but I've done it many times before with no issues. I think car speakers are more resilient than home speakers. I used these to replace some 12" woofers in a couple of old Cerwin Vega home speakers running off an old Harmon Kardon receiver. The sound is very clean. Once broken in they have a smooth effortless bass with a good thump when the music calls for it. I haven't pushed them too much but for my use they perform quite well. Didn't use the included grilles.

Pros: Sound clean and smooth.

Sub hits hard when I crank it. Dims the lights slightly when I have it too loud. But that's a capacitor issue. Overall great woofer. I paired mine with a 600 watt 2 Channel Dual amp

Pros: Hits hard with 600 watt amp

Straight budget pimpin

James from Dsrt Hot Spgs, CA on 11/19/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Was impressed right out of the box with the overall build quality. The surround is high quality rubber and the entire sub looks and feels like it should cost much more. I was very skeptical for the sound quality because the cone is plastic and I've always just stuck with expensive JL audio subs. With a little tweaking on my amp and head unit, this thing provides incredible, clean bass that rivals entry level high end subs that cost 150. Mine is installed under the back seat in an extended cab truck in a 1cubic ft sealed enclosure with a little polyfill inside.

Pros: Clean bass, price

Cons: None yet

good sound even using low wattage

jack from Bedford In on 11/11/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've had few different set ups over the years. Different subs from orion (early 90s when they were the sub to have) to infinity, and Rockford fosgate. Sizes from 8s up to 15s. I wasn't expecting much from this sub. I wanted a budget system for my work truck (simi). I already had an older 4 channel kicker amp laying around plus a pair of Rockford prime 6.5 components along with a Kenwood hu. The amp is an a/b 35x4. Have it running the components and the dub bridged getting 100 watts (well under crutch fields recommendations but within Jensen's) and two sets of pioneer 6.5 full range running off the hu. I brought a pre fab sealed 1.25 box from wal mart. The box didn't come assembled. It had doubled sided tape on it to seal the box. What a joke. Needless to say i took the tape off and used wood glue to seal it. With the sub being in a sealed box it could really use more wattage but even at a 100 watts it fills out the cab decently. No it does not pound but a nice clean low bass sound. I prefer the sound over a ported box for the type of music I listen to (hard rock). I used the snap on cover at first but all it did was rattle against the speaker. Rather then mess with trying to mount it better I tossed it. four stars for the price and the fact that it does a pretty good job even on low wattage. Would be interesting to hear with more power. Not sure it could handle 350 rms . Have my doubts but could prove me wrong. This is a good speaker for someone on a budget.

Pros: good low budget speaker.

Cons: The grill

This sub is perfect for me. I was just looking to add some low end to my car's sound and this did the trick. Adds a nice solid low end. It can shake the car and mirrors if that's what you want. I'm not to sure about it going all the way down to 22db though. Overall a great sub for the price. Paired with a sound storm evo 1500.1 amp in a ported box.

Pros: The price Adds a nice low end for the price Great entry level sub

Cons: Doesn't quite get down to 22db Nothing special about it but does the job

good bang for the buck.

I had two 10s in a huge box that took up my entire trunk. I wanted to downsize and reclaim some trunk space, but still keep my bumpin. This sub does not disappoint. I have one Jensen DUBw12 running on a Dual XPE2700 amp. At first, I had it in a smaller, sealed box, and it sounded AWFUL. Now that I have the sub in a larger ported box, it sounds GREAT; it is only a little less booming than the two 10s it replaced. makes the rear view mirror bounce enough so that I can't see out of it.

Decent for the money

Above what I expected from the woofer however 22htz isn't gonna happen with this sub like the specs say I have 2 in a 4.7cf box ported and tuned to 32htz and they start to struggle with accurate sound reproduction at that level pretty decently loud and I like the grills it came with But my honest opinion for the money I'd of rather bought soundqubed or skar subs

Pros: Cool protective grill hit fairly low for the price.

Cons: Not true to there power 325w would destroy one of these i bottomed one out on 250w don't do nearly as good in the lows as my old kenwoods, type r or the skar or soundqubed subs . Sound quality sounds like I paid the correct price for the woofer, which is ok only bothers me on a few songs

Quality isn't always equivalent to price

Max from Lubbock, TX on 10/19/2016

This sub was my first venture into improving my car audio experience, and I have to say that it was definitely worth it. This paired alongside a Boss audio AR1500m 1500w mono block and a cheap receiver has far exceeded my expectations. The shipping from Crutchfield was fast (the package arrived in two days) and well packed. Spent ~$180 versus my friend that spent $400+ on more name brand products, His is boomy and mudddy (likely just the enclosure but I'm not telling) while my setup is body shaking and crisp. A little forethought goes a long way

Pros: Impressive sound- this subwoofer provides body pounding, window shaking bass while staying very tight and clear Price- for the money, the sound that come out of this thing is shocking Build- the body and frame of this sub are quite solid and weighty enough to scream quality. Looks- I'll venture to say that when most people get a sub, they want it to be noticed. With or without the grille, this sub looks every bit as aggressive as it sounds

Cons: Looks- if you want a little more refined system and still need to protect the sub, I wouldn't use the grille that comes included. It definitely looks a little gaudy if you don't have it in the right suroundings (like a teenager's sports car) Thats it, its obviously not gonna push the bass that a $400 sub would, but price to performance puts this on top.

Nice sub for the price

steve from Fairfield, CA on 5/8/2016

I got this sub for an intro into the the 12" class, I have an old realistic floor sub that i put this speaker in. the dimensions of the cabinet were good, i took the crossover out and cut away all the excess wires. Once mounted i put it in the back of my 06 focus and started to wire it up. I used Crutchfield's ema225 amp @330 watts max, also used the wire kit from Crutchfield. (The wire kit could of used a few more tie ties, but other than that, it had everything that i needed at a really nice price. Im trusting the spec's that Crutchfield gave me on the amp and speaker--they look like a good balanced match. But when i pulled out the speaker for the first time there was a big flashy sticker that says, 1400 watts max--yikes. However, jensens spec sheet coincides with Crutchfield's. The sound of the speaker is pleasing, it brings a soft rumble of base to the stage that fills my car, I really did not test it for that really loud hard hitting base since the speaker is new for im sure there is a break in period. But i did hear enough to not doubt that when the time comes, this speaker will produce. Also, the pioneer 4100 nex picks up the starting hz of the speaker which i thought was pretty cool, it shows 22hz to start and 125 hz cutoff on the graph. Update 5.27.2016: Gave this speaker time to break in and then tested it hard. Now, it aint going to hit as hard as my friends 4X12" subs and 3000 watts thats in his Tahoe, but i bet if you used four of these Jensens and 3000 watts it would sound as good if not better. With his kickers thats all you hear, boom boom boom- no music really. This jensen and the ema 225 amp plus the polk tweeters and stock sony speakers sound really great,, I mean really nice, when the base comes it sounds really good, plenty enough to vibrate your ear lobes and hits really hard to vibrate the whole car. i think a lot of that comes from the low starting 22 hz. Like earlier, my friends hits hard, mine does too but i get a lot more bass vibration than he does. So, my opinion is, if you have a small car with minimum room and are looking for some really nice big bass sound you cant go wrong with this Jensen 12 incher. Plus, as a bonus, with Crutchfield's guidance and tech support i pretty much got a whole system for less money than my friend did for his four subs and two amps installed. (Head unit is a pioneer 4100 nex,)

These woofers were the best bang for the buck. It was a deal I couldn't pass up. The only downside is 2 of them are going to be slightly more powerful than the 600w amp I found but it should be ok. I was looking at a 1000w amp before but the advisor said that was too powerful and would blow the subs. [ Bradson  Aug 13, 2018 ]

Honestly, the Jensen name has been around a very long time all though it was never associated with top of the line, ever, and to my knowledge still isn't. I've sporadically owned their products through the years and while they may not have had the specs of higher end stuff they were fairly reliable, this sub matches my box perfectly, for the price I'll give it a go, has more than decent specs and good reviews. Add all that up and it's a no-brainer, being this old man is on such a tight budget! [ Gerald  Feb 23, 2017 ]

Alpine MRP Mono 500-Watt Car Amplifier will it run two dub 12 inch subwoofers or do I have to get another amp?
[ Scotty  Oct 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The DUBW12 are SVC 4 ohm subs so, yes, you can wire two of them in parallel to your mono amp for a 2 ohm final load. If your amp provides 500 watts RMS at 2 Ohms, each of the two subs would get up to 250 watts.

Can this be used to replace a blown speaker in a powered home theater sub? I have an old Kenwood 1050sw
[ Joe  Sep 29, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
If the dimensions of your home theater sub will accept this subs dimensions yes this sub will work for that application. Just make sure the ohms on your amp can handle the ohms of this sub.
