    DB Drive 12" WDX 5K

    Review of DB Drive WDX 5K 12"

    Thanks To DB Drive for giving me a second test subwoofer!

    So this is my SECOND WDX as the first test run failed miserably.

    I wanted to test this sub with how well it would do with a cheap amp and well all i can say is the end run was the PlanetAudio AC5000.1D was at 65% Gain which produced only 450 watts @ 2 Ohms ended up melting slightly causing the amp to fail and smoke, Then causing the sub to lock up and roast the coils. Believe it or not after 10 mins of roasting due to the amp (i was driving on the freeway) the sub was still able to bump hard on a single coil at 4 ohms with another amp.

    I know dont even say it....

    Well this is my second test and i will hold off until i get another decent amp that does rated power on 2ohms and 1 ohm.

    Specs (Its not available on the net for some reason):
    fs: 56.6Hz
    Re: 3.2 (ohms) x 2
    Le: 3.53mH
    Qms: 8.23
    Qes: 0.71
    Qts: 0.65
    Vas: 11.2L
    Cms: 0.03 mm/N
    Bl: 28.8 N/A
    Mms: 258.5 gr
    SPL: 86.4 dB
    X-Max: 16.5mm (It does much more)

    Recommended Enclosure:
    Will add soon...

    Youtube video of 1st test (the sub is stupid loud with even 400 watts)

    Pictures of New Sub:







    The 1st sub i had a db drive A7 3500 amp on it running 1800 watts before the PA and it was just eating it up like nothing.

    Yeah they did.. It makes the sub look bad, but performance is still on par for what they advertise it for.. I plan to upgrade to the larger 10-20k subs.
