Dual’s SD12 12-inch subwoofer offers excellent power handling, high efficiency, and killer bass — all with a high-end appearance which sets it apart from the crowd. The Dual SD12 features an injection-molded polypropylene cone with a heavy-duty foam surround that promotes deep excursion. The cone’s brushed chrome finish creates a remarkably clean look, while adding strength and durability. A heavy-gauge stamped steel frame provides rigidity and reduces unwanted resonance. Power handling is rated at 175 watts RMS/500 watts peak, thanks to a 2-inch 4 layer voice coil wound on a high temperature Kapton former and a vented backplate. This versatile sub delivers big bass from virtually any sealed, ported, or bandpass enclosure. For more visit www.dualav.com
