Features

Power Handling: AudioControl describes the continuous power handling (RMS) as follows:

  • Min: 300 watts
  • Ideal: 500 watts
  • Max: 700 watts

Terminals: The spring post terminals accept pin connectors, single and dual banana plugs (standard ¾" wide dual banana plugs), and bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Grille: The removable grille is mounted under the rubber gasket/mounting-ring. With the grille in place the sub's mounting height is approximately 1½".

Sealed Box Volume: The recommended sealed box volume range is from 0.85 ft³ to 1.5 ft³, with 1.0 ft³ being the ideal size. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable for all types of music.

Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume range is from 1.25 ft³ to 2.75 ft³. The ideal size is 1.75 ft³ with a slot port measuring 13½" x 2" x 20¾", resulting in a tuning frequency of 39 Hz and a -3 dB point of 30 Hz. Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed, maximizing bass output for a given amplifier.
