Living up to their mythical Greek god namesake, Hifonics Olympus subwoofers carry a tremendous amount of power. The Olympus subwoofer line is designed to provide maximum bass with minimal distortion. Beyond the excellent sound quality, Olympus subwoofers are built to handle the power from the largest of amplifiers. These subs feature oversized 3” voice coils to help dissipate heat while handling tons of power. One look at the massive double stacked magnets is all you need to know that these subwoofers are built to handle loads of power.
These Olympus subwoofers are available in 12” and 15” models. The Hifonics OLM1612 is a 12” Dual 2 Ohm Olympus series subwoofer that is rated at 1600 watts of RMS power. The dual voice coil configuration gives you more wiring options. Its special fiber-glass infused FEA structured cone is specially designed for added flexibility and heat dissipation. Weighing in at 33 pounds, this subwoofer is a heavy duty bass machine that will bring enough bass to get your car flexing with the beat.
The next step up in the Olympus line is the OLM2412, which you can think of as the OLM1612’s big brother. This 42 pound juggernaut can handle up to 2400 watts of continuous power! It is also designated at 2 ohms, and its dual voice coil configuration makes it easier to find an amplifier that can provide that type of power. It also is fashioned with a special fiber-glass cone, characteristic of Olympus models. With the right amplifier, this subwoofer will notify the entire neighborhood of your arrival.
Why stop at 12” if you have room for a 15” mega subwoofer? The Hifonics OLM1615 is a 15” Dual 2 Ohm Olympus series subwoofer. Rated at 1600 watts, this subwoofer will blow you away with its absolute power. That’s a lot of bass! But even the OLM1615 has a big brother: meet the OLM2415. This 15” Dual 2 Ohm subwoofer is the definition of a heavyweight. Its die-cast aluminum chrome speaker frame is one of the reasons this beast weighs in at a scale-tipping 65 pounds! It can handle a jaw-dropping 2400 watts of RMS power. That’s enough power to let the whole block know that you are back in town and mean business.
Hifonics recommends housing Olympus subwoofers in ported enclosures for optimal performance. If you hook up these subwoofers with a great amplifier and amp kit, all of your friends will envy your car stereo system.
