Cerwin-Vega Mobile STKR12

The Cerwin-Vega Mobile STKR12 12-inch subwoofer uses massive multi-layer 3-inch dual voice coils, available in 2 or 4 ohm, to handle a staggering 1200 watts of RMS power. The new integrated terminal allows for all 8 awg connections to be made on one side of the woofer. The custom tooled skeleton cone design provides a reinforced yet lightweight alternative to conventional speaker cones. All of this is mated to a massive cast aluminum basket with double mounting holes to provide a more secure marriage between the woofer and enclosure.
