One time I had 2 MTX 10" subs that had a rubber surround. I was playing it a little hard and tore the surround pretty much all the way around. I bought some windshield urethane and glued it back together. I got rid of them a little while after that and surprisingly the guy who bought them tell me they still sound great. So the answer is yes and no. Depending on the surround you might be able to get away with it. Make sure that you use something that stays flexible even after setting. Also depending on where the tear is and how big it is, it might not even hurt the sub. I hope I could help.

I have to replace a sub in a jbl encounter and the wiring is yellow and orange. Which is pos, and which is neg?


Use a C or D size battery. Get two pieces of wire. Strip each end. Wire one end of each to the sub. The other ends you will place one on the top of the battery and, one on the bottom of the battery. If the cone moves outward, you have the correct polarity. If the cone moves inward(toward the back of the speaker) then you have the polarity backwards

12 inch sub(JBL) in box with a 500 watt pioneer amp, sounds good with some types of base. would you cut a port hole in speaker box?


riverray1969 it would help if I knew the exact model number of that JBL sub you are referring to. With that info I can provide exact specs.


Basically, you need to build/modify an sub enclosure that is suited for the sub, the music you mainly play, and vehicle tuning. Generally, sealed enclosures will provide tighter bass response and get decently loud. Some would argue that it will give you greater sound quality. A ported enclosure will give you a louder more booming sound. That depends also on where the port is tuned (ex. 32 hz, 36 hz, etc ). You need to make sure that the enclosure meets the sub's airspace requirement as well. A customized well made enclosure is just as important as the sub you put in it.

How to hook it up for one ohm


oh yes the JBL GTi W15GTI Mkll. this subwoofer is a dual 6 ohm voice coil subwoofer. This is impossible to run this sub alone and get 1 ohm you will need another JBL GTi W15kll. the lowest impedance you can go to is 3 ohms. you can achieve this by connecting the positive terminals together and then running a wire from the two positives to the positive terminal on the amp. then connecting the negative terminals together and then running a wire to the negative terminal on the amp. this is a real nice sub it just has that one down fall of having a six ohm voice coil.

How much air space


Air space needed around the sub is a minimum of 1 inch, but 3-7 is preferred. If you get too big you can get an echo sound. Sealed is my preferred box - it generally gives you the deep base thumping you are probably looking for.

Finding the best amplifier


Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.
