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.

Great sub for the price

Haven’t had it for very long, I bought the hydro 10” shallow sub and am already impressed with it! For being a shallow sub it come with some deep bass! Love it and would definitely order again!

Review on order

I want to apologize to the owner and staff of CT sounds because I made the mistake of postponing a review on the item because I thought that they wanted me to give a review on the item I had just received and I sent them a message that once I installed the item and tested and heard the item then I would give a review on it but they just wanted me to give a review on my experience of ordering and receiving the item so I apologize.....with that said CT sounds is great with shipping and getting the product to you as soon as possible I greatly appreciate there speed in getting your order ready and shipping it out fast....thank you CT sounds owner and staff....

Solid Sound

Had to exchange these for 8 inch - they wouldn’t fit under my seat- CT sent me a return label and shipped out the 8 inch hydros in under 2 days - well done!

Good Stuff !

Purchased the 10" 4ohm Hydro shallow mounts to go with my CT-700.1D's and I am very pleased.
I am running them under a 1ohm load.
