The 12W1600 woofer features a special 4″ split copper wire voice coil wound on a fiberglass former using proprietary high temperature adhesives. It features an optimized ceramic ferrite magnet assembly that will guarantee very good Low dynamic range with a very low distortion figure. This professional low frequency driver is especially recommended for compact vented enclosures, in which it will deliver solid, deep bass output.

  • 4″ split copper voice coil wound on fiberglass former for hi-temp performance, 8 ohm
  • Ventilated voice coil gap reduces power compression
  • 10.5 mm Xmax, 36 mm peak-to-peak excursion before damage
  • 800 watts continuous program power rating makes high acoustical output
  • High BL factor and Xmax for outstanding Low output
  • Weather-resistant paper cone and dust cap

Designed to make tremendous amounts of bass, the 12W1600 12″ woofer can be used in small vented or sealed cabinet. The shallow 5.51″ mounting depth and high EBP makes it ideal for compact folded horn enclosures. Our specially designed rigid cast aluminum frame features side forced cooling system openings which allows airflow to cool the voice coil to handle up to 800 watts RMS without issue. Spring-loaded push terminals make installation a snap while offering a secure connection to your speaker wires.

To stand up to the use and abuse of the professional sound environment we designed a 4″ spit copper voice coil that is wound inside-outside on a fiberglass former and features a generous 27.5 mm winding length for extended Xmax and less distortion.

The cone, constructed of thick paper for a natural response, includes glass fiber reinforcement and uses a ribbed design offering additional structural support. Supporting the cone is a double heavy spider and triple roll treated cloth surround, both designed for high excursion applications to handle short bursts of excessive power without damage.

Technical Details


*Nominal power handling is defined as the maximum RMS power that the speaker can handle in a 2-hour test with a pink noise with 6dB of crest factor and a bandpass filter with 12db/oct tuned in its usable frequency range.

**Continuous Program Power (RMS) is the maximum power that the speaker can handle considering a regular musical program using our recommended filters, this power can be used to define the optimum amplifier power to provide a clean signal without clipping or saturation.

***Max Peak Power is the maximum power operation for the speaker, this power is allowed just for a few fractions of a second, usually found just on the peaks of the music. Keeping this power for a little longer timer will damage the speaker.
