Now-a-Days, no matter what make or model vehicle you have, there is a good chance that a subwoofer box is made specifically for your car. There are various different configurations that these Vehicle Specific Subwoofer Enclosures are available in. The many combinations include unloaded, loaded, and amplified enclosures. An unloaded subwoofer enclosure is just the box itself, a loaded subwoofer enclosure is already equipped with the woofer inside, and an amplified enclosure is loaded with the subwoofer as well as a built-in amplifier. This gives you plenty of options when building your system. You can purchase just the box, load it with your own choice of subwoofer, then power it with your preference of amplifier, or go about it the complete opposite way and get a fully loaded, amplified enclosure that is ready for installation right out of the box. The choice is yours.
A great amplified vehicle specific enclosure we carry here at Sonic Electronix is the Scosche FDF15004. This enclosure is made for a 2004-2008 Ford F-150 double cab truck and is built to fit conveniently under the rear bench seat. It is preinstalled with a 10” EFX subwoofer that puts out a max of 750 watts. This 10” subwoofer is equipped with an Injection Molded Metalized Polypropylene Cone, Rubber Surround, PVC Rubber Magnet Boot, and Rear Vented 2” Voice Coil. As an exclusive combo package, Sonic Electronix has compiled a package that includes the Visonik V217SX Amplifier. The amplifier is part of the Hi-Intense Series and is a 2-Channel Class AB amplifier that can be ran at 4 ohms (200W x 2 channels), 2 ohms (300W x 2 channels), or can be bridged at 4 ohms (400W x 1 channel). Its max power output is 800 watts, so it has plenty of power to push the 10” subwoofer to its fullest potential. Visonik’s V217SX amplifier is supplied with heavy-duty aluminum alloy heatsink, gold-plated screw terminals, variable high and low pass filters, and is powered by a full MOSFET power supply and circuitry. The All-in-One Combination Package of the Scorches enclosure, 10” EFX subwoofer, and the Visonik amplifier provide ground-shaking bass and is a perfect match for F-150 owners looking to enhance their vehicles audio system.
