Focal RSB-300

Verified employee review (What's this?)

I ordered these focal rsb300 (auditor 12's) along with some other 12" subs to to replace some old (20yr+) JBL 12's in my truck; these were recommended to me by CF based on size, rms ratings, and overall characteristics. Upon receiving them and trying 1 (of2) along with the Hertz Centro Cs300s2, I chose the Hertz over the focal. The focals are "average" in my opinion, the cone only measures 8-inches in diameter (small for 12, small compared to Hertz, small compared to prior JBL) the surround is way over-sized, the cone seems a bit flimsy, the screw terminals are interesting (compared to push or spades), and there is very little technical information on these (like no X max, frequency ranges that do not make sense for a sub, etc.). The build quality seemed "ok" (flimsy cone, center dust cap not exactly centered, overs-sized cone, etc.) and the speakers performed average as well; to me there is nothing special about these and the price could be lower for what they are (and I spent more on the Hertz).

Expensive "budget" SQ driver with non-budget quality

Joseph from Round Lake, IL on 8/13/2023

Expensive for what it is, but it's an excellent sounding driver that fits a niche application. Trying to find a driver within the 3-400wrms range that is 2ohm final with a small footprint of ~1cuft enclosure/6"mounting depth and is affordable is surprisingly difficult. Considered JL W1 12, JL w7 8, Pioneer TS-Z10, alpine SWT-10, and few randoms like a pair of alpine basslines or some of the JL TW series but either the price was out of budget, the similar priced items sensitivity was terrible or required too much box space, or the mounting depth was too much. Given the high sensitivity rating, the large cone area of a 12, and only needing .8-1cuft for sealed/ported applications this was a perfect "budget" SQ driver. The 350wrms rating seems underrated, in a sealed box it seems ~500wrms would drive it to max capacity. It seems to lack on the higher end (60-80Hz) but that could just be due to a sealed application and low power. Fills in all the bass perfectly in a 02 wrangler.

Pros: Excellent clarity, sounds ported on some songs, very small footprint and 2ohm final impedance so works great with a 4/5 channel application

Cons: Price - seems like it should be closer to a $140-$160 driver

Over priced for what you get.

I have 2 in a truck box on a pioneer 1600 watt amp. For spending this much they should have out performed the single $50 12" pioneer sub in my wife's suv. These probably would work great in a hatchback/suv but definitely not how I have them setup. These were recommended by Crutchfield for the amp and box I have. Would not purchase again

Pros:

Cons: Over priced Unable to mount inverted

This is an excellent sub. I have it running on a 600w MTX amp and it hits hard. Also blends really well with the Focal PS 130 V that I have installed. Well worth the money!

Pros: Hits hard. Produces tight bass when it needs to, but has a bit of boom as well.

Cons: None so far
