Reference Series 10" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils
Our take on the Infinity 1062w by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
An Infinity Reference subwoofer makes every deep note of your music count. Whether you listen to jazz, rock, hip-hop, country, or all of the above, you'll hear and feel satisfying bass with this sub in your car.
The 10" Reference 1062w offers a classy, no-nonsense look, with a high-gloss polypropylene cone that's accurate and hard-hitting. The durable large-roll rubber surround provides smooth, extended excursion with reduced distortion so you get impressive bass performance. Dual 4-ohm voice coils make it easy to draw big power from a compatible low-impedance amplifier or safely hook up a multi-sub system for heavy-duty low end.
The 1062w's unique motor structure cuts down on the mounting depth, and this sub works in sealed, ported, and bandpass enclosures so you get bass the way you want it. And since you want your investment to last, the 1062w features plenty of internal cooling to protect the sub's inner workings and keep it performing at its peak.
Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most 2-channel car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation. Most mono amps are stable down to 2 ohms.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 400 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
Priced per speaker
So far, so good. These replaced some worn out SVC JL 10". These sound great, but, I may have to get a larger amp to power them.

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.
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.
Proprietary Basket: The unique in-board motor structure reduces the overall mounting depth, without limiting enclosure options.
Vented Polepiece: The vented polepiece provides additional cooling of the motor structure, 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.
Sealed Box Volume: Infinity recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.75 cu/ft. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle more power, and provide more accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.
Ported Box Volume: Infinity recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.75 cu/ft with one 3" diameter x 4.75" long port. Ported (or vented) enclosures provide better efficiency in the 40-50Hz range, and are suitable for use with small amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of sound quality at low frequencies (40Hz and below), and control.
Bandpass Box Volume: Infinity recommends a 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 7.875" long port. Bandpass enclosures often provide the most output available from any amplifier and subwoofer combination at the expense of sonic accuracy. If sheer SPL is desired most, a bandpass enclosure is recommended.

Yes [ Anthony C. Dec 22, 2014 ]
I personally wouldn't try it, but I feel like if you were to do it without blowing the sub you'd have to lower the wattage you have going to the sub. You will also have to have a 1-ohm stable amp. [ Mitchell Dec 21, 2014 ]
No, dual voice coils at 4 ohms each will enable you to wire it down to two ohms, if wired parallel. [ LINDA Dec 21, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Nov 06, 2014 ] Staff
Not noticably. it rests along the bottom of the magnet. [ Sean Jul 10, 2014 ]
1 answer Listen to A LOT of classical. Have had Infinity Beta tens since about '95 or so & it's time to replace. The Betas are each in fiberglass enclosure about .8 cubic in a '91 Turbo Celica. (Check out August'93 Car Audio mag "Sassy Celica" the start of this mod.) Need help reproducing accurate cannon fire from Tchaikovsky 1812 , '62 Living Presence Mercury recording. Also the deeper ZZTOP stuff. And, of course, 'Baby Got Back.' How do these rate? [ Maggie C. Jan 27, 2014 ]
This is a solid sub, i have one in a 05 z roadster, this thing rocks powered by rockford fosgate mono amp, i would recomend this sub to anyone [ ROBERT S Jan 28, 2014 ]
