Series II enclosure deliver the enhanced efficiency and higher output of a vented enclosure, without the distracting noise or “chuffing” generated by a port. The patented Slipstream port dramatically reduces port noise at high sound pressure levels by minimizing airflow turbulence. With high-roll surrounds, proprietary cone design and long-excursion, Series II enclosure deliver deep, powerful bass, with greater accuracy than conventional ported boxes. And the exclusive SSI™ (Smart Selectable Impedance) switch lets you choose 2- or 4-ohm impedance for maximum configuration flexibility. It’s everything you want in a compact, easily installed enclosure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hits hard and smooth! Like the title states, it hits hard, and it hits smooth. Moves my entire car in all the right ways. Definitely a smart purchase, and a great deal for a beautiful box and sub. This sub blows my old one out the door, and I couldn't be happier that i picked one up.

What's the difference between a car subwoofer and a normal subwoofer say, like one you'd put in your living room

Asked by: Mattinator3512
When you hook up a subwoofer to your home audio or home theater system, you will probably notice that you must plug the subwoofer into an electrical outlet. Power requirement is 110 volts. This is because most home subwoofers have a self-contained amplifier used to power the subwoofer only. In most cases, home speakers will be rated at 8-ohms. On the other hand, most (although not all) cars subwoofers are what are known as passive subwoofers. Power requirement is 12 volts. Car subwoofers are usually wired to an external amplifier used to drive the speaker. In most cases, car speakers will be rated at 4-ohms.

Do you have to buy an amplifier for it or is it built in

Asked by: T_z1
Hi, Thank you for your question. Yes, this is a passive subwoofer that requires an amplifier to work. You can also see the installation process in our owner's manual. If you need more information, please contact our helpdesk.

Is there a different RMS at 2ohm and 4ohm settings?

Asked by: nbeda
The S2-1224SS can handle 275 watts of RMS power handling. This means that any amp with an impedance of 2 or 4 ohms and a power output of 275 watts per channel will work fine with these speakers. That said, the power that the speaker can handle remains the same whether it's switched to 2 or 4 ohms.
