Sony Xplode 12" sub

Nice sub for the price, adds some deafening bass to any audio system. Needs a well-built box to sound good.

I mounted the shallow mount in a 1.25 cubic inch truck box to allow me to still have lots of cargo space. It sounds great! Crisp clean punch and also provides the nice low bass.

I've have my system in three different cars (98 chevy lumina, 99 mitsubishi eclipse, and 04 WJ) and in all cars i've have had a great expirence with these subs, i have two 12 inch explode in a ported box, and love it. they sound best in my jeep. Definately two thumbs up. The price is rough because it was a holiday special. and the box was hand made to fit my first car.

I purchased this pair of 12" Sony Xplod subs about 5 years ago and they are still going strong. If you were to look at them, you might even think that they could be brand new! I've always been a fan of strong bass in all of the music that I listen to and these speakers will not disappoint. With the hard top on, the Jeep itself acts almost as another box that helps the sound to reverberate and really make some noise. Also, these still have enough power and sound great with the top off while you're listening on the open road! Great speakers!

This production is the best bang for your buck. Im only using a 400watt amp and a 1.2 fraud cap. for my subs and they hit pretty hard and enough to make heads turn in other cars.

Overall, the product is ok. It's a lower priced product that is better than a lot of products in the same pricetag, but there is still far better out for a little more money. If you are doing a strict budget build, or just looking for something to add to an old pre-existing system, this could work. I would recommend it to the newbies in the audio field to do some trial-and-error work with, and to just play around with the acoustical properties of your vehicle. It's great for the amateurs to the field, but if you are looking for a more professional sound, I would recommend going with a better quality item.

Speaker Type: Passive
Speaker Diameter: 12"
Nominal (RMS) Output Power: 350 Watt
Max (RMS) Output Power: 1200 Watt
Response Bandwidth: 30 - 1000 Hz
Input Impedance: 4 Ohm
Sensitivity: 83 dB/Watt
Magnet Type: Ferrite
Connectivity Technology: Wired
Series: Xplod

On a side note, I did have one of these from a few years ago that survived a crash that totaled the vehicle, and the sub still functioned mostly flawlessly with a bent frame, until the voicecoil melted apart from too much friction.

Great sub I got it off my buddy for 150 which included wiring and an amp so it was an amazing deal. I strongly recommend getting one

they are obviously not compared to alpine type R's but will make a good rumble for the price. mine sound great for what they are. Mine were also sold to me by a friend.

lets get real, its a single 12"sub. it's going to let you know it's there, but not overpower anything. it will porvide a beat to the music that you can feel and provide some low end rumble. but hurt the ears, probably not. and for me, that's ok. I want to hear it and feel it, not having the neighbors at me.
