Default Hifonics HFI 12 Review!

First off, let me start by saying how cheap this woofer is! Great pricing on it.

The build of the woofer...yeahhh the parts are cheap. Horrible cheap "chrome" cosmetics, shipping weight of 10lbs...? The woofer itself weighs somewhere around 7.5-8lbs. Terminals are complete crap and might I add the cheapest construction on a terminal I have ever seen in my life. The cone and the surround seem to be decent, basket is a typically cheap stamped basket.

I'd like to mention how fvcking sloppy it is. I would also like to note that it's in 2.0 net slot tuned at 35hz yet the woofer sounds like complete ass, at least to my personal preferences.

I have it on 320w rms(rated at 12.9v) ... with gains at half way, playing within tuning frequency and everything else correctly tuned. HPF at 80. 3/4 volume on Head Unit - the subwoofer began to stink. No big deal, right? I got out, walked to the trunk and opened the trunk - sniffed the port and what do I smell? Not sure, but it's not glue. It honestly smells like the coil is not doing too well.

Worth 35 bucks? Probably, but in the future I will DEFINITELY spend the extra money for at least a Kicker Comp VR or similar. This is a tad ridiculous and I would much rather run a Fosgate P1 or a Funky Pup(literally, it sounds better and will probably take the power better), if that tells you anything.

I wasnt expecting the world, but this is horrible. If I give it the full 300w(in almost burps terms, 5 seconds at most) it gets *reasonably* loud for what it is, but for daily I would not suggest more than 150-200w in a ported enclosure. I would avoid venturing into the 300w rms territory for a sealed enclosure and moderate listening.

Sound Quality: 7/10
Power handling: 4/10
Low Frequency Extension: 7/10
Output: 7/10
Build Quality: 5/10
Total: 30/50
