First, let's have a look at the Pioneer TSSWX2502 10-Inch Shallow-Mount Pre-Loaded Enclosure Budget Sub Woofer. The TSSWX2502 by Pioneer is capable of producing fine bass. The subwoofer utilizes an over-sized cone structure to provide a greater cone and gasket surface without affecting the external dimensions. This greater surface allows more air to pass which results in a louder, deeper bass. The cone is sturdy, thanks to the MICA injection-molded design, and guess what? It also has an accurate bass response. The dual spider enhances motion control for optimized stiffness stabilizing linear movement.
Now we will have look at an alternative, the Rockford Fosgate R2D4-12 Prime R2 DVC 4 Ohm 12-Inch 250 Watts RMS 500 Watts Peak Subwoofer. As its name suggests, the R2D4-12 by Rockford Fosgate is the big bad brother of the R2D4-10. The R2D4-12 covers everything a car audio fanatic needs in one convenient package. The voice coil is made of anodized aluminum so there's no chance of heating up while the subwoofer is in use.
The connectivity is backed up by a vertical or horizontal mounted terminal. The mounted terminals force wires to bend so they can be fitted easily. The angled push terminals are aligned to be straight, which makes them easy to connect speaker wires.
This subwoofer is certified by CEA-2031 industry standards which means that it has the capability of handling power under continuous demand without damaging the voice coils.
