    12" RE Audio SR Subwoofer

    My review is based on bass. I have stock speakers and wasnt looking for the blending and was not concentrating on SQ much.

    I decided to purchase this from a friend, brand new.

    I mounted it on a 1.7 cu ft vented enclosure tuned to 30 hz.

    Its is receiving 400 watts RMS.

    I have a 2007 Altima sedan. Back seats up.


    First Impression:

    Its a heavy subwoofer and is well built. Its obvious that the SR can handle more than is rated 300 watts RMS. I didnt like the allen key terminals, I prefer the banana plug ones

    Song List:

    3-6 Mafia - Late Night Tip
    Twista - Ovadose
    TI - (I Like My Beat) Down Low
    DJ Tiesto - Ice Rain
    Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood
    Beastie Boys - Brass Monkey
    Pink Floyd - Breathe
    White Stripes - Seven Nation Army


    I played about 2 minutes of each song.



    The bass goes down pretty low. Its lower (and louder) than the Type R. It also has a better response than the Alpine. It keeps up with Trance music (fast beats) pretty well. The bass is suprisingly overwhelming on the rap songs I played.

    I think that the SE might be a more musical subwoofer. But as far as loudness, its rivals SE. I feel like the SE played the lows with more authority.

    (I had the Type R and SE in the same enclosure and were given 400 watts)



    I am very pleased with the subwoofer subwoofer. I dont really see anyhing wrong with it. I got the lows that i wanted

    Great subwoofer! But the RE customer service is non-existant.

    I have a question:

    Why are the 12" RE Audio SR (dual 4ohm) parameters different on the factory box and on the manual (SD, XMAX & BL)?

    factory box:

    FS: 23.6 hz.
    QMS: 4.99
    QES: 0.41
    QTS: 0.38
    VAS: 85 liters
    SPL (1m/1w): 86.2db
    SD: 523 cm^2
    XMAX: 15mm
    BL: 17.5 tm
    DC: 1.8ohm or 3.7ohm

    manual:
    FS: 23hz
    QMS: 4.99
    QES: 0.41
    QTS: 0.38
    VAS: 85 liters
    SPL (1m/1w): 86.2
    SD: 480 cm^2
    XMAX: 18mm
    BL: 14.35

    RE: 1.8ohm


    which is accurate?


    thanks


    P.S.

    the compact and optimal enclosure sizes are mixed up on the manual for all the subs
