Hi guys & gals,

This is an exclusive opportunity for CarAudio community: we are looking for a few folks to test some entry level 12" subs and post their reviews (details will be PM-ed).

The product will be sent to you FREE of charge, we just need your opinion as a user. If you've written product reviews before, either on VMInnovations.com or elsewhere that's a plus. If you participated in the past, and actually followed-up and posted a review please let me know.

If you are interested please comment below and PM me the following info:

1. Your user name
2. Your email address
3. Agree to post your review within 10 days of product arrival

That means in order to test the product, you'll need an amp and other accessories that generally needed to test out a sub.

Cheers,
Lucky@VMI

p.s.
products will ship on August 7th and will be at your doorsteps by 10th most likely.

No use for 12's here any 10's or 15's and I have available boxes. Single or dual 15 in personal, single rear center console 10 in work. Great vendor though bought several non audio products with great service.

the 10s are 500rms/800 max

Ahmed Johnson
08-28-2013, 12:30 PM
Do they have rec box size, ported, sealed etc? I tried looking and could fnd anything. I do have an old prefab ported for 15"s. I also have a custom ported but I think the custom might cause these subs too blow.

pro-rabbit
08-28-2013, 12:37 PM
From what I could tell just by reading about them I would think these subs (all sizes) will well in small to medium sized enclosures. If you are putting any of these drivers into larger custom enclosures be careful with power and watch the suspension. These are entry level subs so the mechanical limit will be easily reachable with much over 300 rms to any of the drivers in ported enclosures.

Ahmed Johnson
08-28-2013, 12:45 PM
So you think a small sealed is best for power handling?

Lowlacs
08-28-2013, 01:12 PM
I asked for the 15"s too. Shipping weight on mine said 31 lbs. I was wondering if that was for 1 or 2

Yes my shipping statement is for 2 subs with the same 31lb shipping weight. I couldnt find any ts numbers on the subs either but my plan is to run them in the same 5.5cube box I have my Skar vvx subs in. Its tuned at 32hz so we will see how they perform in a small ported enclosure. I know I will have to gain down significantly to accomidate them bein entry level subs. I will be careful to take it easy on them in the beginning.

pro-rabbit
08-28-2013, 01:15 PM
So you think a small sealed is best for power handling?

"Power handling" would not be the goal for these drivers. I would likely put them in a similar class to like a P1/P2 from RF or similar other drivers. Where they are created to fill a niche of new audio enthusiasts who want a low budget system yet still maintain a decent output.



As for T/S specs... I will get some from the 12" version for everyone. If anyone has a 10 and/or 15 (would need to be nib) they want to lend for a day I will pull them as well.

yeah then i should get 8! lol i was most impressed with them in about .5 cubes sealed. like i said for what they are they can make a lot of the general public happy such as my GF had 3 of them and she was very happy they lasted quite a while before one blew and i certainly had them over-powered and for the money easily replaceable lol the only thing that wasnt cool to me personally is they dont dig very deep on low notes..but hey for the price what can you expect

she did get a 250 dollar ticket for disturbing the piece cop was a complete POS

As for T/S specs... I will get some from the 12" version for everyone. If anyone has a 10 and/or 15 (would need to be nib) they want to lend for a day I will pull them as well.

Dustin I will send ya the 15 specs when they come in tomorrow

going to run the 12's on a RF power1000bd in a sealed 2.1 per side box and see how they do in the 4-600watts range.


EDIT then maybe do something evil and see if I can't get a full tilt burp out of them on the Popcorn4k lol

Do you man 2.1 sealed for both? Because 2.1 per 12" selaed is rather large. Also, that RF will be a bit much power for the pair more then likely.

Ya think 2.1 per is too much? well I can put something in the box to take up some space then maybe drop it to like 1.5 per and I got dual 4 ohm so I can wire the pair at 4 and get lower power from amp like 6-700 also have a RF 225.2 I could use in stereo and run one on each channel at 2 ohms.

So anybody be up for a "vmi challenge" so who can put up the highest numbers from a pair of these subs? I plan to take mine to a competition this weekend as part of my review....so anyone else interested? Should be few sets out there with this giveaway:naughty:

I am running my first comp in a couple days after they get here so I am going to run the meter on my cvrs and then these the same day with only a couple crossover tweaks so I will have a comparison to a known product, then running an iasca comp the weekend after and going to try and do the same thing so I will post vids and pics so yes I am game

I got my shipping notification today for two 10" dual 4's The email reply I got from Kush recommends an enclosure 16" l x 13" h x 8" w So I guess they prefer them sealed. I kinda wanted to do a ported enclosure and tune them low, but I guess I'll stick with sealed.
Fedex says delivery tomorrow, 8/29

Edit;

Fedex tracking now says one is scheduled for delivery tomorrow and one for Friday.

My srw15s just arrived. They have a somewhat stiff Single spider attached to what looks like a 2" coil, I am pleased to see good cooling features. Doesnt seem to have much excursion room, maybe 1" peak to peak although this is just preliminary(pushin on the cone) as I havent installed them yet. Also, they do seem to be well constructed. Im no professional so Im not really sure how to decifer the T/S numbers but it does appear that my 32hz box will suit them just fine. The packaging is plenty acceptable(very good) and the lil owners manual is also informative enough. Overall they do seem abit shiny and cheesy, which is prolly apealing to the targeted buyers in this price range. I am including a pic of the T/S parameters for anyone that cares to read them and also general pics of the subwoofer itself. I should also add that VMInnovations has Super fast shippin! From Pa to Fla in 2 days.

anybody notice the wattage, vm told me 500rms 1000mx, so does the book, but the box says 800w?

it would help us non box builders if you put the cubic feet for each enclosure too, instead of just putting the measurements, i had to pull out torres, wiring diagram was kinda cool but if your going to use the words series and parallel explain it and the ohm loads a little more...

Wow, I just ran the numbers for the 15s on the12volts calcs and I got 3.5cubes before displacement and a tune of 47hz after? Is this correct? Silly me but I thought u use the fs number for general tunig? I mean I know there are other factors but 47hz really? What do u think man?

seems kinda high to me, but thats why i'm running sealed... lol but remember your also not running a $500 sub, so performance is not gonna be that of a $500 sub, and as far as tuning and box building, i let the experts take care of that, i'm running a prefab sealed enclosure, my whole set up is going to be budget just with stuff i can seeing somebody purchasing with these subs, a decent prefab sealed box and a apsm1300...

Here is the review I posted on Amazon.com....

"I was sent 2 of these to review as a third party by a VM rep on Caraudio.com. They arrived quickly and were securely shipped. The are entry level low power subs so don't expect to throw a 5k amp on these and break windshields. I mounted the subs in a 2.6 cubic foot sealed box and ran them off a Rockford Fosgate Prime 150.2 amplifier bridged and delivering about 200 watts. They have a tight punchy bass with good for price sound. They responded well throughout the range 30-150hz they were smooth and over all decent entry level subs for the price offered. I would not run more than 500 watts to a pair because when I hooked them up to my Rockford Fosgate Power500bd and played full tilt they did begin to smell slightly but did handle the power for a full 15 mins of testing but were fairly warm. Overall they are very decent entry level subs and at the price offered I would not hesitate to purchase them myself."

Just got mine in today. They did an amazing job packing them. Had to cut through like 4 boxes. I got 2 15" dvc 4ohms. My first impression out of the box is that they do look nice. I like the gloss look a lot better than I did in the pics online. On to the rest of it. I am comparing these to other subs and keep in mind that the lowest quality subs that I have ever ran have been JL 12W3v3's. the basket is a horrid design. I do not like it at all. It is very thin and I don't care for the two different patterns. Despite being thin, it is sufficient for the weight of the sub. I was able to press the cone in a good inch out of the box. So I suspect that this will hit mechanical limits rather quickly. I wouldn't think putting it in the 2 cubes box they recommend would work very well. Looks like it has pretty good cooling. It has a single spider with the tinsel leads sewn in. I wasn't expecting that on an entry level sub. Nice push terminals that are nice and right. Be careful with them though as the platform for the spider landing and the terminals are made of a rather thin plastic. I could see it breaking pretty easily when pushing on the terminals if you don't do it right. The motor has a large plastic covering. Reminds me a lot of early rockford punch subs. I tried cutting it off real quick but it's glued on pretty well. After I test them out in a box I will get into it better and cut it off to get a better look at the motor. While it has its little flaws and obvious shortcuts in quality, it is to be expected at the price. All in all, my out of the box impression is that these subs are an amazing value at $100 shipped for 2 of them. If I was on a tight budget I wouldn't hesitate a second to buy them. But as we all know, it doesn't matter how a sub looks. It's all about how it performs. So I will follow this up once I build the box for them

Thanks guys, we'll send over the product links to you asap.

Please keep in mind these entry lvl subs cost around $30 - $45 ea/ shipped (depending on the size). There will be higher performing subs that will also cost a tad more - later this year I believe.

Lucky I posted my review at VM about 15 mins ago but it is not showing up I don't know if it is an error or if it has to be looked at first so I will wait to post it again until I know for sure. I also posted the same review on both the single offer for the subs and the offer for a pair of them on Amazon

I received mine today, two 10" dual 4 ohm subs. They were well packed, shipped in one big box with 2 smaller boxes inside. Wierd becasue Fedex showed there were 2 packages with seperate tracking numbers. Anyway, who cares, I got them, in great shape.
I wanted to do them ported this weekend, but the recommended enclosure figures out to a 45hz tune. I have never heard anything tuned that high before, what is that going to sound like? I prefer lower tuning and better SQ. any recommendations? Also does anybody know what the Xmax is on these? Was modeling them in WinISD but I guess I have to have the xmax to model it properly.

ok got my 15 today .looks like an average entry level 15 , but has some weight to it ,which i feel is a good sign . will be installing it in a custom 15 box that i made for a dc lvl 3 15 a while back and using a jl 500.1 slash series amp ,will post my findings here in a day or two

well just installed the sub on my bench testing system ,15 amp power converter ported box ,custom at 32 hertz on a jl 500.1 slash amp,with my ipod as a hu ,and at full tilt was pretty decent on juice box .it hit the lows very well with no rattles like you would expect from a low end sub .also takes the power well. i know this isnt the best test to do ,but i will be installing it later this week in my sons truck to see what she will really do. so far i'm impressed with this being a $50 sub and it sounding as good as it does so far .would like to hear it in a suv application ,maybe i'll get one of my sons buddies over hear and hook t up in their tahoe ,and let her rip .

This was installed on a 2012 Toyota Sienna and its unloading on the rear deck

Well got my 10s yesterday. Building a box next week for them. 2.25 cubes ported@ 32 hz. I will have to agree with a lot of people on here....great customer service fast shipping...mine were packed in 3 boxes.....unpacking them they remind me of my very first subs which were p1s from rockford. The basket needs to be stronger and maybe a different design but I gotta remember this is a budget sub so it works in this application. I can't wait to hear them esp since most are saying they are showing promise with the bass.

I clearly stated in my review not too put more than 500 watts on a pair of these subs but some people don't listen.Might get away with 600 on the 15's but def not on 12's or 10's.

yeah I seen that too would confuse the hell out of people @Lucky you might want to get that packagin fixed it is confusing the top says 800 watts the front says 1000 and the specs on side say 500. I am betting they mean 1000 watts from a amp rated by Boss or Pyramid. lol

So I got my two 15s (600rms/1200peak) installed yesterday wired @1ohm. I gained my amp to 800rms with a dmm @45hz since thats where my truck and box(5.5^3 with 14in of port per) peak. After I read a bit about T/S parameters I realize they should prolly be used in sealed aplications only but still I decided not to build a sealed box. Heed my warning fellows, as my results were great for the first run but during the second ride, one of mine "caught the clap". I pulled it and could see no apparent damage so I read the coils, one tested fine at 4.2ohms and the other coil was dead with no resistance. So I will conclude MY paticular failure was prolly user error based on the Qts of 1.0 this woofer should not have been in a ported enclosure. I will prolly still leave a decent review since they were playin hard and I figure the failure to be my mistake. Im gonna offer to ship it back to Lucky if they care to test and inspect the failure but if they dont want it, well, then Ill cut it open and get gut shots for u guys.

Edit* Before anyone slams me or my experience the coils are still golden/red and there was NO warning ie; smells or overexcurion, I know this because the woofer enclosure sits on the rear seat of an ext cab chevy truck, for easy removal if the whole famn damily has to ride.

I had my two 15s on an American Bass Ph4000 gain set for 28volts(800rms) with a -3db 45hz tone. And yes one woofer is obviously blown but again the printed T/S numbers dont suggest a ported enclosure although the box and book do mention they can be run in either ported or sealed. I was just lettin everyone know what my experience was and not to overlook the T/S parameters. I still believe the subs are plenty good for what they are an "entry" level subwoofer but the published book and the labeling on the box may be abit misleading.

How much space could I get away with for 3 15s sealed? 2 cube per? I would probably stuff with polyfill. Im thinking 3 on an apsm 1500 at .7 would be an awesome low budget setup. Is the outer trim ring removable? Will the woofer still seal correctly without it?

Yes on all but the amp I can't comment as to the amp for three@.7 but IMO with rise and such u would prolly be fine

Mine are face mounted and I just used a good ccf adhesive weatherstripping 3/4x3/4 to seal, worked great no air leaks I can tell

Sorry about the issue, the thing w/ Amazon is that you would have to buy something with the email or amazon account to be able to post a review (even a $1 pen would grant access to post reviews on Amazon).

Got home and my pipe was busted under my sink so i have to do some work at the house so im loaded down this weekend. Hopefully we can get one posted. I did like the look of the sub.

cutting it close on my review but here is what I wrote for amazon and vminnovations website for the pair of 10s I received.....
really enjoying them

if your on a budget and want some beats for your daily driver these subs will deliever for the price. At first glance, the design of the basket could be better although it allows for quite of bit of cooling its just not appealing to the eye. Also the magnet could be alittle heavier but then again this isnt a competition sub so it gets the job done. These remind me of sony xplodes or rockford fostgate punches on the looks. As far as performance, these things are punchy on the lows. I was shocked how well they did with them. They arent over powering just right. Reminder its an entry level/budget sub. Will say i am running a pair off a mb quart onyx 1600(tuned to the ear) and a box that is right around 2.5 cubes 4" port tuned at 32hz and again they performed quite nicely with rap and rock music. Thanks again for vminnovations for the opportunity to review these at no cost to me. Great product so far...keep up the great work.

Any of you guys here still using/playing around with these subs? I have ran them ported and sealed and they seem to do really well for what they are. Obviously these aren't the loudest subs out there but the bass is solid and has a real nice tone to it as long as they aren't overdriven. Real nice sub for the price. I have used subs 2-3 times the price of these and was left unimpressed. I was even considering buying another one(or two) and seeing what I could get out of them.
