Alpine type s 12 Subwoofer: SWS-12D2 – Alpine 12″ Dual 2-Ohm 500W RMS Type-S Car Subwoofer: Unconventional Style
Introduction to Alpine Type s 12
Using technology found in their higher end subs, this sub will rock your system and add depth to your favourite tracks.
You’ll love the detail it brings to a bass guitar and the impact you’ll feel when a kick drum hits. Throw a couple of these in your ride and prepare to be amazed by unrelenting bass.
The SWS-12D2 can handle up to 500 watts of RMS power, so you can drive it hard and it’ll keep up. The tough 12″ Kevlar® treated cone stays rigid under pressure, while its rubber HAMRS surround allows for maximum excursion.
Its dual 2-ohm voice coils allow for wiring flexibility which helps if you plan on adding another subwoofer down the line. Also, it rocks in both sealed and ported boxes, so you can choose an enclosure that suits your tastes.
Alpine’s Patented Airflow Management System helps minimize power compression and ensures reliable long playing time.
Similar to having a larger intercooler in a race car, the larger surface area allows for the voice coil to cool faster, ensuring that your bass tracks cleanly and reliably, without compression.
The new fourth-generation Type-S subwoofers have undergone a revolutionary redesign, leaning heavily on patented technologies developed for the Type-R series.
The result is a subwoofer that is so good we had to redesign the Type-R. Altogether, they offer significantly improved output, deeper bass extension, more control and even greater power handling.
