Default Phoenix Gold Elite 12D

BIG THANKS TO BEN LARSON @ SOUND CONNECTION INC!!!! ST JOSEPH MN!




























Annnnd..... when i try to test em....






Initial review...

MOTOR - dual 1" slugs, almost 8" in diameter.
COIL - Has weird flat black sleeve over it, cant tell if its round or flat wound. assuming round. def 3 inch! has former vents. pretty tight gap
CONE, SURROUND, CAP - Cone is a little flimsy, but the full cap is very strong, sturdy. the surround is boss! huge!! very plyable for a rubber surround
TERMINALS/BASKET - Terminals are 12 gauge pushing 10 gauge! i could tell the difference from the 12 guage ones form sundown and these ones, these ones def bigger, slightly. the basket, obviously not a standard basket as it didnt fit in a 11" hole. so im goign to assume a 11.188" dia hole is needed. spacer will be made....
SPIDER - integrated leads, very nice 2 layer spaced design, fairly stiff out the box, im going to assume they will loosen up quickly. thing that concerns me is the leads are small ish. but could just be used to big big woofers

IM excited to build a box/toss these in a box!

Dude don't sit the sub on the surround man, it'll sag the suspension and put scratches on it.


Those subs are supposed to be hella awesome. Conservatively rated at 1600 watts RMS... it can take more. I want a pair.

^^^NEVA, I treat my subs with dignity, well unless it's the Bazooka P.Miller series or the Rockford P1 or the MTX 4000, I would throw that shit in poopwater.

Interested to see the results. PG back in the game? I remember when I had a PG RSd12. Picked it up for $60 new on ebay. The best budget 1-12 setup I have ever had.

IIRC the price point on these is in the 450$ range.

and honestly putting a woofer on the surround like that for a minute, maybe 2. is not going to hurt it anymore then playing it for 5 minutes...

"oh no dont play your sound system its hurting the woofers!!!"

Wonder how these are going to stack up to the original Elite12d.
