The level 3 sub is the ultimate daily driver sub. It puts out the low lows with lots of output designed for sealed or ported enclosures.

The Level 3 sub is a triple stacked FEA optimized motor wrapped in a magnet boot, chrome top plate and T yoke. The deep gap offers more X-max for a total of 22.5mm.

This sub also comes with dual upgraded progressive spiders, cone, surround, 3″ voice coil, cast basket,
push terminals, and upgraded sewn down  lead wire. We give the Level 3 a power rating of 900w RMS/1800w peak.

Made with high quality parts and hand built in the USA, this is probably our #1 seller.
