Product Reviews

  • "Boom for the buck" by CoppolaStephen on 1/8/2015
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    These subs perform great as I replaced some old Kenwood speakers that were worn out and I am utterly impressed at the quality of the sound as well as the power rating. No chance of blowing these babies. I would recommend them to anyone needing a good replacement and the price can not be beat.. A solid speaker that performs very well under the most extreme conditions.

  • "awesome woofer" by ohmega1080 on 3/20/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Dont be fooled by the price or even the frequency responce, this woofer has great subwoofer quality playing down to 20 hz. Remember the 48 hz is only the f3 measurement, it still performs below that. I am using this woofer in the vintage ohm "I" series that utilizes a 4-way system with the 55-2962 as the subwoofer. The ohm replacement is over 200$. This woofers performance is awesome.

  • "Amazingly pleased!!" by howeedee on 3/13/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I have been in the Consumer Audio electronics field for around 20 yrs. now and I would have accepted some minor flaws, inattention to details such as: fit and finish, inferior manufacturing or materials, sloppy craftsmanship, ect. And! , truely expected to see some lack in detail based on the Description vs. extremely low-price . WELL!! right out of the box I was very pleased by the obvious quality of this speaker and expected to hear why they could be so inexpensive - because they looked too good for the money!! Well during some lengthy and critical break in session prior to using them as my band's Main P.A, speakers, I listened to some reference tracks and wasn't altogether impressed until I Mic'd my vocals. Perfectly reproducing the tonal quality of my voice so well, my bassist thought I was singing un-amplified as he entered the building. The best choice I could have made for my vintage SLM 2-way cabs which I purchased for almost nothing from an acquaintance who knew nothing about Pro-Audio. I do and @ $40.00 per cab, total refurb. is unheard of...Well not anymore!!! and I have finally found my source for inexpensive , quality speaker components, now..what's next is total custom builds - " Number One" Audio is my brand-name , "Cuz if it's not #1 , it's #2!! - right-on MCM for making my dream more do-able than ever before!!

  • "Surprisingly excellent speakers!" by mrphilco on 1/31/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I purchased these to replace a pair of blown woofers in a set of circa 1970 Teac speaker cabinets. Wow - these are quite amazing! They produce bass that you can not only hear, but feel. Very pleased! I would definitely buy these again.

  • "Love em." by DaveWilliams on 8/29/2012

    Used several of these, as well as the 8" and 10" version as replacements in older, used gear, normally for resale. They usually end up in guitar amps, bass amps and the occasional keyboard amp. Great results every time. They sound great in a variety of enclosure sizes and types, handle plenty of power and look fantastic. I highly recommend.

  • "Actual specs" by killersoundz on 5/6/2012
    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    Build quality seems ok but the manufacture specs are far off from what I actually measured. Here are my measurements: FS - 47hz Qts - 1.18 Qes - 1.518 Qms - 5.31 Le - 1.88 Re - 7.51

  • "Great for the price" by cmoist1127 on 1/6/2011
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    This woofer is a great value for the price. Construction is solid and mounting holes lined up well. It produces great low-end compared to other speakers costing double the amount.
