Excellent boom for the buck
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is an exceptional value. The specs and build quality are excellent. 13mm Xmax and 90db of sensitivity make this a great choice for systems with lower power ratings. I built a sealed wedge box for this that fits behind the passenger seat of my regular cab F150 and is 1.33 cubic feet. Two small things to ding it on were the lack of clarity on the box specs. The manual states 1.25 cubic feet with the subwoofer is recommended. But does not specifically state if that means 1.25 before or after the subwoofer displacement. There was no information on the displacement either, so I guessed it at .07 which makes the net box volume 1.26 cubic feet. The other thing is the terminals use blade connectors. For many, this is a non-issue. But I would be cautions about removing or installing the connectors as they could break. Would be nice to see spring-loaded terminals. However for what this unit cost, it was not a deal-breaker. I bought this to replace my Rockford Fosgate P3S with something more efficient and deeper bass in hopes of using less bass boost. Mission accomplished as I was able to lower the bass boost by 3db. For reference, the box dimensions I used are 22W x 17.5H x 11D1 x 6D2 using 0.75" MDF and is being powered by an Alpine MRX-F35 bridged on the rear channels. The front channels are powering Infinity Kappa 6x8 components (680.9cs).
Pros: Outstanding sound, responds well to lower power.
Cons: Spade terminals, unable to find woofer displacement anywhere, manual unclear on box volume requirement as a result.
