We recommend having the gain tuned with a multimeter to ensure the correct power output and DD1 or O Scope to ensure that the amplifier is not outputting any distortion or clipping to the subwoofers. We recommend between 80-125hz LPF for most of our subwoofers and a subsonic filter set to 25-35hz while Bass EQ is set to 0dB.

Clipping is a waveform distortion that occurs when an amplifier is overdriven and attempts to deliver a current beyond its maximum capability.

In sound waves, the sides of clipped signals are vertical. That means that the signal will try to move the subwoofer's cone from front to back as fast as possible. Nothing can move that fast: so, the subwoofer will either tear itself apart trying, or the flapping cone wobbles just enough to jam the coil in the magnet’s voice coil gap.

Both positive terminals connect to one positive terminal on the board within the amplifier.

Both negative terminals connect to one negative terminal on the board within the amplifier.

This design function allows for the addition of more subwoofers to a single amplifier.

Choose an amplifier that is able to output the correct RMS rating for the speakers you have.

All amplifiers have a max power output, but RMS signifies the constant power supplied to the speaker.


To begin you will want to make sure that the settings on your radio are flat or at zero. You should never have to use “bass boost” or “loudness” with a properly tuned system. You can use the subwoofer level on your radio for fine-tuning. You’ll want to get your system tuned to a level that is loud without distortion or popping. Take your time. Listen carefully to the sound being produced by the subwoofer(s). Once you have found your ideal level, drop your settings (gain) to half of that. For instance, if you are at half gain, drop it down to a quarter gain.

This is your “break-in” setting. You will want to keep these settings for the first 24 to 36 hours of actual play time on the new subwoofer(s). We find that it is usually about a week of regular music listening in a daily driven vehicle. After those initial 24 to 36 hours; you can retune your system back up to the original setting. Your subwoofer(s) is now broken in and ready.

NOTE this is the absolute simplest explanation of only one method to break in your new subwoofer(s). There are many more involved methods that require specialized tools but, this method is a basic suggestion. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Neither voice coil is superior to the other. Simply put, the difference in the coil configuration helps determine the impedance (or resistance) an amplifier will see when the subwoofers are wired to the amplifier. You will want to consider the capabilities of your amplifier and the number of subwoofers you will be connecting per amplifier in choosing which coil configuration will work best for your set up..


Currently, Elite Auto Gear does not design custom enclosures. This includes making any recommendations on 4th and 6th-order bandpass enclosures. We do however have some detailed cut lists for generic enclosures that are built to spec for multiple combinations of our subwoofers. We would be happy to assist in sending these free of charge to any customer: however, we are not able to make any modifications to them.

It is important when reviewing enclosures for fit with your subwoofer(s) to consider a few basic specifications:

Elite Auto Gear knows the importance of finding/building a great enclosure to unleash the power of your subwoofer, so we proudly display all our recommendations for our subwoofers and their enclosure specifications on each product’s page.
