Infinity Reference 1030w

anthony from Klamath Falls OR on 10/2/2011

just got two of these infinity 1030W. There in a none enclosed box i got a 600w keenwood AMP pushing them in my 2011 kia forte koupe! They sound real good, but i have two 10'' MTX THUNDER 8000'S in a enclosed box same keenwood 600w AMP that i have had in the trunk befor and the MTX'S puts the infinity 1030W to shame!!

Hands down this is the BOMB for Subs, I run a 10 inch reference series 1030w in my 93' Infinity J30, powered by a Infinity Kappa One - 800w mono Amp and this sub hits better than 2 - 12' of any make. Mine is in a sealed enclousure and is in my trunk. Let me tell you, people can hear me coming 3 - 4 blocks away. Of course I not playing my tunes for them but, when you stop folks in their tracks, you know you're sounding GOOD. I play Old School, Funk, Soul , Rock ,Salsa & Jazz music and the sound is so clean and crisp I'd recommand this sub to all who enjoys good clean quality sound rather than a high priced one.....!!!



i love my infinity subwoofers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have 2 of these in a sealed Q-logic box in the trunk of my 1989 nissan sentra. It's not earth shattering bass but they pound pretty good off 100w rms a peice and the sound quality is awesome , they're so tight and smooth, i will definately recommend these.



Great Sub

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've got 2 of these in a sealed Q-Logic box. They are in a 93 Ford Ranger Super Cab, and WOW! These subs have the best sound reproduction I've ever heard. When REAL music is being played, they blow Rockford away. Although rap and such sounds really good too, good ol' rock and roll has never sounded better. And don't get me started on how Stevie Ray sounds! The thing that amazes me the most is that I'm only running 100 watts RMS to each sub from an Infinity amp, and that's barely 1/2 of the recommended power capacity. I was worried a little before I hooked the amp up, that they would be under powered, but no problem at all in my small truck. I can only imagine how hard they hit at full power. Super crisp, tight, and low bass with no distortion at all. I have always used Infinity speakers, and will continue to do so in the future.



Quality Sub!!!

WK from Maryland on 5/7/2005

Sometimes Quality!!! has nothing to do with price and this Sub is a good example.I am running a single sub with a phoenix gold amp in the area of 400 watts.One word "TIGHT". I play mostly Hip-Hop and Jazz and it handles both very well even in the large trunk of my Sebring no matter what the level of volume is.Trust me 1 to 2 of these and you well be greatly satisfied.



2 10's in Q Logic box

Rick from Chardon, OH on 4/18/2005

awsome subs. i have them powered with a oh......8 year old pioneer amp thats as good as it was the day my dad bought it (hehe) i love the subs, they have been in and out of 4 of my cars and they sounded slick in all of them, they just needed a re tune and they were perfect.<BR>right now i have them in a 05 mini cooper and its a bit overkill, but the sound is so crisp and the bass is so deep, i cant lower myself to replace them. i would recomend them to anyone looking for crisp loud and deep subs. A+++ sybs! great job infinity!!!



One in an Q-Logic Sealed Enclosure

Dean from Newark, DE on 4/14/2005

I have a sealed Q-Logic enclosure with one 10" 1030. I am pushing aout 130 or so watts RMS out of an older model Pioneer amp. With the upgraded speaker system in my Suburban, the bass quality and mix are excellent. The bass is clear and precise even at lower volumes. Thank you Crutchfield for all you've helped me install.<BR>Being the jazz fan I am, Charles Mingus has never sounded so good!!!



Infinity Reference 1030w

Dave from Hixson, TN on 3/17/2005

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are definately the best for your money. Infinity speakers have always been excellent quality and these are no exception. If you are looking for some great entry level speakers, look no further. I have 2 in separate boxes hooked up with a bridged connection to individual 450 watt amps, let me tell you from experience, these subs hit hard!



Excellent audio at a affordable price.

Manu from Ormond Beach, FL on 2/8/2005

Nice entry level subs. I have 2 of these in a type 1 box with a 500 watt rms Profile amp and they thump! It's very cool to go down the street and have heads turn 2 blocks away to check out what's coming. You can't go wrong with Infinity's!




Hands-on research

Product Research

Enclosure Compatibility


High-efficiency Polypropylene Woofer Cone: This lightweight and popular material is used to ensure maximum woofer efficiency. The benefit is high output with modest amplifier power.

Large-roll Rubber Surround: The large-roll rubber surround provides optimum cone-edge suspension and absorbs distortion that may travel up the cone edge, ensuring clean, tight bass.

Proprietary Deep-draw I-beam Basket: The deep-draw I-beam design allows room for a longer motor structure, which provides increased bass output. This basket is also more rigid and has a lower basket resonance.

Vented Polepiece: The vented polepiece provides additional cooling of the motor structure. The subwoofer's thermal capabilities are augmented, thus increasing power handling.

Progressive Spider: The subwoofer uses a progressive spider, which provides better control at excursion limits than more commonly used linear spiders. The result is reduced distortion at high output levels.

Gold-plated Binding Posts: The gold-plated binding posts will accept pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and bare wire.

Note: The binding posts are positioned too far apart to accept dual banana plugs.

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: Infinity recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.75 cu/ft.

Recommended Ported Box Volume: Infinity recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.75 cu/ft with one 3" diameter x 9.01" long port.

Recommended Sealed Bandpass Box Volume: Infinity recommends a sealed bandpass enclosure with an internal volume of 2.0 cu/ft. The enclosure has a sealed chamber volume of 1.0 cu/ft and a ported chamber volume of 1.0 cu/ft with one 4" diameter x 7.87" long port.
