CT Sounds is proud to introduce the hydro shallow mount subwoofer series after completing a rigorous R&D process spanning 2 years! Our goal was to engineer a 500-watt 10” shallow-mount subwoofer with a mounting depth below 4” that was suitable for both sealed & ported enclosures. To achieve this, we focused on the EBP (Efficiency Bandwidth Product). As a general rule, EBP < 50, is used only for sealed enclosures, EBP 50 - 100, is used for both, and EBP > 100, is used only for ported enclosures. EBP = FS/QES.

Quick Facts:
RMS Power: 500 Watts
MAX Power: 1000 Watts
Voice Coil Configuration: Dual 2 Ohm
Use Cases: Sealed & Ported Enclosures

Our 1st prototype utilized a 61.1 mm voice coil & 50 oz magnet resulting in a high QES rating of 0.915 and low EBP of 39.46. The 2nd prototype utilized a 50.8 mm voice coil & 50 oz magnet resulting in a slightly lower QES rating of 0.736 and a slightly higher EBP of 49.27. After the 1st and 2nd prototypes, we determined a larger motor assembly was needed to provide a more controlled electrical system (lower QES). This led us to invest in a custom-tooled basket (used in the final prototype) to keep the mounting depth below 4”.

The 3rd and final prototype uses a 61.1 mm voice coil & 70 oz magnet resulting in a reduced QES rating of 0.504 and a balanced EBP of 76.29. In testing, we ran into mechanical noise due to the larger motor assembly and voice coil in a confined space. Therefore, we invested in a custom-tooled cone to maximize the excursion capability by creating an equal distance between the cone, spider, and bottom plate. The result is a 10” shallow-mount subwoofer that is extremely responsive in both sealed & ported enclosures.

Lots of bass

Really good for a starter sub. Hits hard in my underseat enclosure

Finally!!!

I have been wanting a pair of CT subs for awhile now. Finally picked up a pair of Hydro 10's for my truck and it's my 4th set of shallow subs but the CT's are the 1st to sound good, no GREAT!!!!! Can't wait till I "need" more.

Worth it

Replaced two kicker comp 10s in my 83 squarebody. Ct sounds might be my go to

10inch shallow sub

Not yet installed but I know this sub will be a good one as this is not my first item purchased. I will continue to be a CT Sounds customer

Just installed!!

Love them ! Have mine in .56 cu ft each chamber. Punchy and musical. Still breaking them in.
