    Bought two of these guys after I blew up two kicker comps with too much power. I had them together running at 1ohm load and 1500wrms off of a hifonics brutus 1516 mono block. So I was basically giving these subs their Max power rating in rms power constantly. They lasted for months!! Expected them to die a week later, so after 6 months one finally let loose and I believe it’s only because I was playing for 4 hours straight. Sooooooo if you’re thinking about this sub, don’t even hesitate, well worth the money invested. And they get damn low for being 12s. I’ve had more than a few times people come up and ask me if I had 15s and they wouldn’t believe til I showed them the setup! Thumbs up skar 👍

    I did my research for months to see what would be the ideal subwoofer/enclosure combination for my 2014 Silverado Crew cab. It all led to these subs. I have 2 of them installed and they far exceeded my expectations. Diehard RF fan but could not find anything within the mounting depth parameters. Skar is on to something long lasting!

    These speakers were used to replace the 12″ RT Kickers in my 2017 Roush F150. After about 4 years, the kickers finialy blew and I need an inexpensive replacement. These Skar 12″ speakers hit hard. Just as hard or maybe harder than the Kickers. Initially, I was a little skeptical because I am not familiar with the brand name. I read an amazon review and price of under $100 each convinced me to try them. I thought it would not be much of a loss if I blew these also. I was completely and pleasantly surprised at the sound quality, volume, and pressure. You will feel bass these speakers produce with a good and subbox. I recommend a ported subbox. It is what I have.

    Have been a die-hard Fosgate fan for 30+ years. Purchased this because the dimensions fit in a Taco-Tunes box. At only 5.5cu I was worried the sound would suffer from a 12”, so I got this because of the price. This thing POUNDS!! Cannot believe I’m getting that much bass from a shallow 12” in a 5.5 box! I hate to admit it but a Fosgate shallow doesn’t come close… I’m going to buy a full size and build a to-spec ported box just to see what these can do. These are beefy subs. I can see why they are quickly becoming popular.

    I will say that I was skeptical purchasing this woofer about a year ago as I did not know of the manufacturer, but after watching some videos and reading reviews I went ahead and follow through with my purchase. If you’re looking for a woofer that has value, I recommend this one. I’ve owned the 800w 12″ for about a year now, placed in an older sealed box and hooked up to a discontinued Pioneer amp. I’ve had no issues with it, great sound output, but I will be ordering the ported pre-fab box Skar makes after doing some research on that as well as a “cleaner look” in the trunk since the older sealed box was bought from a pawn shop. I’ve pushed this thing to it’s limit and a little past that (after break in period) and held up fabulous. Best woofer I’ve owned.

    Best sounding sub I’ve owned out of alpine, kicker, Rockford. Finally got my custom under-seat .9 cu ft fiberglass sealed box structurally completed. (Ram 1500 quad cab 3rd gen) Added a little dynamat and poly fill. I put on 3 kinds of bass…wow! Music sounds very natural. Cleaner than any other sub I’ve owned. Smooth and tight, no tensile lead noise. I’m running off of a skar sk-m900.5 which is underrated at 450w into 2 ohms rms (only number that matters). This sub can take a lot more. Btw. I recommend the amp too. Oh, did I mention cheap! Beautiful! The only “negative “ is this isn’t an extremely shallow sub. Be aware of it’s still over 5” deep and the basket is wide. I messed up and placed my hole about 3/4” too far back and can’t install the sub square to box. Basket is probably about 85 degrees with respect to minting flang for about 2 1/2”. Push terminals will barely fit 2-10 awg if you run coils in parallel. 12 guage no problem.

    The subwoofers work amazing. Be careful though as I bought the D4 vs the D2 and had to wait for installation couldn’t return them. Even at 500ish watts vs 800ish watts I was expecting to send to them both they still vibrate with a perfect balance to my additional speakers. I am disappointed in my mistake. Extremely pleased with the output vs price. 2nd Skar sub I have owned and they are impossible to beat for the price in my opinion.
