The motor assembly consists of double stack 1" thick ferrite and a large mass CNC top plate, with a bumped T-yoke for extended excursion and rear pole venting leading to efficient cooling.

An efficient 2.5" Copper 4 layer coil on a black anodized aluminum former is aligned with Nomex spider suspension and woven heavy duty tinsel leads fed from oversized 8gauge push terminals. 

The heavy duty but lightweight non-pressed paper cone stitched to a custom shaped foam surround is built for daily abuse. 
A custom finished cast basket keeps it all together, with under spider venting for added cooling.

The Forte series is rated conservatively at 800w RMS for the 10", 1000w 12", 1250w 15" and 1500w 18".
Built to be a very effective daily woofer for systems ranging from single 10" applications to multiple woofer wall builds while being capable of competition use the Forte series is extremely versatile.

    Not Junk

    Hello I'm writing this review in response to nicks post. he says they are cheaply built and cant handle "real power" well that's false. I run 2 forte 12s in a 3.5cubic foot box 4 inch aero port in a f-150 extended cab. I'm running them on a crescendo3500 at 2 ohm getting easy 2250watts to them doing around a 144-145db on a lab daily. Its all about tuning of the box and amp any sub can be great when catered to. Don't just be that person who throws double the rms to a sub and expect it to last forever. Just know your equipment and run it as recommended. Thank you for your time and I hope you give these subs a try and don't trust people who leave reviews with no details or reasoning.
