Review 1 of 35

Price Paid:  $400.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 2 cerwin-vega strokers

Strengths:
LOUDDD!!!! hits everything well

Weaknesses:
takes alot of space thats about it

Summary:
I have 2 cerwin vega strokers in a 2004 F-150 ext. cab and its crazy maxin out at 4000 max peak and 2000 rms. its worth the money i bought them off of ebay for a good price for what they are worth i dont have a very good amp on it i have a ssl 4000 i dont know how much it is pushin i just know its loud. If i had it in a different car it would be much louder because of the dimensions of the vehicle. I have spent about 3 to 4 grand on everything in my truck with the wires, alternator, battery, deck, subs, capacitor, 4 door speakers, an amp to power them, the box, the original amp to power the subs, and the box. but over all i am very pleased.

Review 2 of 35

Price Paid:  $450.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
1999 Cerwin Stroker D4

Strengths:
Very Powerful! Will update you when I pump more power into this thing. Deep Bass! Looks good, I like the way the pin comes up to allow more stabability!

Weaknesses:
Requires a lot of space. Box Needs to be to specs.

Summary:
I'm very impressed with this subwoofer. I've tried two different amps to push this thing so far and even when I'm only running 300 to 500 watts rms it's really strong and deep. 1st amp I tried was a 400w Power Acoustic which sounded good even though I really don't like using the amp, it's primarly used to push my 10" Eclipse. The 2nd was a 1000W RMS Soundstream 10.2, it was pushing 500W RMS @ 2ohms into the stroker and it was Very Strong and clean! I'm looking to get an Orion 2500D or a Rockford 1501bd to supply my Cerwin with the power I want. The box bult for it is of course vented and and the volume is about 6.57 cubic ft. This subwoofer needs to be in a box to specs to sound good, very specific. You get SPL And SQ if you have the right amount of air space. I highly recommend this subwoofer as long as you have a lof of room to work with, large trunk or a truck and have the extra money to get a strong amp along with additional accessories, such as a cap, high end battery and may need to get a better altenator if you want a reliable and long lasting system.

Review 5 of 35

Price Paid:  $300.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
 18" D4

Strengths:
Umm lets see... -1600RMS -VERY efficient -strong -LOUD -Hurts my car (i dont care, thats a plus!)

Weaknesses:
Needs a huge box, and is ugly... other then that its the best sub ever :-)

Summary:
Ok first of all it is the loudest single sub i've ever heard. I still havent broken mine it at all yet, and i metered it today at 149db's. Granted thats in a 8.0ft^3 box with a 105in^2 port tuned to 40hz. Its bein powered by a JBL BP1200.1 amp, and i have a second one i'm gonna connect and run about 2500 watt burps to it for compitition. As big as it is, and as big of a box its in, it still performs quite well. I'm sure once i put it in a box thats tuned to about 32hz, its going to be alot more accurate. I love this sub so far, and would highly recomend it to anyone who wants to impress there buddy's, be the loudest in town, or anyone who just loves jaw-droping lows.
