These subs are ideal for anyone that wants premium bass performance at lower power levels.

Clarity and bass frequency response are exceptional even at low volume, giving your music’s low end some dynamic punch typically lacking in low volume play.



  • Sensitivity: 86.9 dB
  • RMS: 500 watts
  • Peak Power: 1000 watts
  • Frequency Response: 35-500 Hz
  • Impedance: 2-ohms

The Good:

If you are looking to throw some bass without paying the premium price of competition grade subwoofers, these subs make a good compromise between pro-level power and high-end sound and materials.


The Not-So-Good:

In terms of raw power, these subs are not necessarily going to bring the noise like Kicker’s higher end L7 and CompQ line.

They are great subs, but they may not give quite as much thump as you anticipate if you are looking for something to shake the block.
