Drew Kallen, Rockford director of loudspeaker engineering said, “The T3 superwoofer’s injection molded foam surround makes the foam strong and durable like a rubberized material, while the edge wound voice coil allows the windings to be very close with no air gaps so it stays cool for high power handling capacity. We also engineered a very efficient ‘Push/Pull’ voice coil design with a huge Neodymium magnet for a very efficient motor assembly. This sub really needs to be experienced in order to fully appreciate it. It’ll blow you away…literally.”

Car Tunes deserves a big round of applause for their services. I went into Car Tunes because I'd suddenly lost the whole right channel of my MINI's stereo. I walked in thinking I was due for a new set of speakers at the very least, but Mike helped me troubleshoot the issue. His experience & expertise helped me find the issue (a loose plug) and fix it right away. I then worked with Dave on the theoretical "what can I do to upgrade my system" question, and he was flat-out brilliant. He listened to my stock system and recommended a quick, simple upgrade of a slimline/shallow 10" subwoofer for the boot and an amp mounted under the seat. What's more, they had availability to do the install THAT DAY. In a few hours my car was out the door, and grinning from ear to ear. I typically don't make big purchases without research, but i had heard of Car Tunes' reputation ahead of time, and I was so comfortable with Mike and Dave that I bought on the spot. Dave suggested a setup that was very reasonable price-wise, but exceptional in quality and end result. I could not be happier! Car Tunes will be my first and only stop for future car audio needs, and a radar/laser detector when the time comes. Car Tunes is top-notch, from people to products.
