Advice: a driver with no spec sheet is a signal of low quality.
But hey, if you have it already, who cares?! Measure it and you can fit it in a perfect box.

LOL
40 Hz to 5Khz is more like woofer not a subwoofer
ported? bottom ported? back ported?, its your preference.

ported,sealed,good, bad .No one can help without Thile Small parameters for ur speaker

Sensitivity 97 dB is Fake

Surrounded by rubber, Digital Ready. I would love to know, which manufacturer lists specs in such a funny way

Ya if you have it already and dont know anything about it, no sticker, no brand
Try it out in sealed enclosure for safer bet may be 1.25- 1.5 cubic feet box

You could use both in parallel for four ohms, or a single at 8 ohms, one coil on each side of a stereo amp.

Or just power one of the 8 ohm coils until it burns up, then a spare is still available .

Ok, may be I was mistaken, the math didnt add up

4 ohm or 8ohm

8 must be series, this means 4+4 ohn
then the parallel must be 4 and 4 in parallel giving 2 ohm
and hence it should be 2 ohm and 8ohm

I dont there are 2 resistance values which sum as 8ohm in sries and 4 in parallel

Thanks for your responses. Is a SoundBarrier 12" sub-woofer Model SBW-12PI
Can it sound something close to a Logitech subwoofer? maybe the X530?

May be its an old version. Cant find it on their website
Sound Barrier - Sound Barrier | | Woofers
I am sure you already know you need Qtc Qms Fs Vas, numbers like these for this sub. Then put em in the winISD free software and you get a nice box type and size simulation.

nice one, X-530 Logitech 25watt subwoofer vs Some 12inch 450watts
lets think
12 inchs will kill the X-530 and then tear its cone apart and then $#%$#^%$# the magnetic **** out of the poor no good Logitech
how you plan to power this sub

Dont know where you from but i hear ppl recommend 50$ infinity 1262 12 inch
frequently. Dayton also has lotts of really nice subs for all price range.
