Hard-hitting bass

Polk Audio's DB+ Series subwoofers combine high-tech materials and advanced design to give you smooth, powerful, hard-hitting bass without stressing your wallet. The DB 1242 DVC 12" subwoofer boasts a rigid polypropylene cone and durable Santoprene™ surround built to handle big power over the long run. Its low-profile design means you get serious performance from a sub that takes up less space.

Dual 4-ohm voice coils

This sub's dual 4-ohm voice coils allow you to wire your system to draw max power from your mono amp or to safely hook up multiple subs. Match a DB+ sub to a suitable enclosure, and enjoy impressive bass punch rarely found in this price range. Polk Audio tests this sub rigorously for environmental effects caused by sun, moisture, and extreme temperature changes. They even certify this sub for marine applications, so they're a great choice for your boat too.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 275 and 550 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
