anyone tried rockville subs for fun? it looks pretty good for $49

Recommended Posts

i'd like to play with 2 but with a dual box it would be took much $ (to me) for playing around but i have 2 single 12 boxes.. i mean look at it has kevlar in the cone probably very little excursion but still and has 30 day refund on it so if it sound like crap i can send it back if it sounds ok i'll have another back up.. very sensitive too i could even run 1 at 4 ohm (600rms) but if i do 2 ohms just set gain crazy low be more than 2x rated power https://www.rockvilleaudio.com/W12K6D4/

If you are bargain hunting.

 

American Bass XO 1244 12 Inch 400w RMS DVC 4 Ohm Subwoofer - SSA STORE

 

Or cheap nvx sub line, cheap skar sub line, Wolfram audio cheap sub lineup, etc.

 

I'd stay away from Rockville imo

I can't even find tsp's for Rockville subs, I'd stay away.

 

American Bass low end stuff is pretty good for the money.

I put a Rockville RMW8P sub in my nieces's car for Christmas. Alpine makes one IDENTICAL to it. The Rockville was $65. The Alpine is $250.

I brought her car to the local audio shop to actually drop the Alpine unit in the car to see IF it was any better. It, sadly, was not. The cheap

Rockville sounded FAR better than the Alpine. Maybe the Zeus 1200.1 wasnt enough for the Alpine sub with accordion surround.

 

I am actually putting together a system for my wife's new CX-5. The amp will be an RXH-F5, 5 channel. The door replacement speakers will

be 8" coaxials and a sub enclosure in the spare well with a single 10". I've done this same setup before in a '90 Blazer fullsize, and I was

very impressed with it overall. They do their CEA ratings pretty well. With that being said, I do like the brand in general.

Those rockvilles are really solid for what they are.

 

Quite few ppl used rockville in the 150$ challenge with good luck.

 

One of my buddies did 146 on 1 Rockville 10

Instead of buying two or three junk subs a year just save up for 2 years and buy something nice. If you know you're in this hobby with both feet and for the long haul why screw around?

yeah i know that y i haven't bought a lanzar, ppi, earthquake, fu 300 or lcs300 cause whata do with those once u play them for 10 days?, sell for $20? i used to get new subs free like every couple months and i just like to hear diff subs so i know if they really crap or not bad for the $., still say my pioneer 3003 best bang for buck i've heard..

yeah but sundown don't have $50-$70 subs.. i'm still thinking about dark audio 3" coil but 500rms $109 they basically same as the cheap cab.. also just saw skar has new sub looks like about the same basket anyway but 2.5" coil..

The skar sdr?

 

Motor is very weak on that. BL^2/re figure is very low. Basically its a cheap, flawed driver. The vvx is notably better
