MSRP: $229.99

If you're looking for the kind of bass purity and intensity that sucks the air out of your chest and makes the hair inside your ears stand up then you can stop looking.

The VM Audio Elux Series 15" competition subwoofer was designed for those with a passion for pure and unmuddled low frequencies. We know you're going to push your audio equipment to its maximum potential and our expert audio engineering team designed our Elux series subwoofers to keep up.

Whether you're looking to turn some heads around town or if you're an audiophile yourself and want to get the kind of crystal clear bass that you need to enjoy your music to the fullest, the VM Audio Elux series 15" competition subwoofer is the pinnacle of bass performance, intelligent design and precision engineering.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW


Top-Tier Bass Responsiveness

You need a subwoofer that can meet the demands of your favorite music. The Elux series 15" subwoofer uses a high-excursion mechanical suspension system, a large poly-cotton spider and light-weight IMPP cone to provide you with the clear, responsive bass that you need.


Built for the Long-Haul

You should be able to blast your music with the windows down or with the top back without having to worry about your speakers being affected by the weather. Our Elux series 15" subwoofer is built with a durable rubber surround, custom stamped steel basket and nickel-plated wire connections so that the unit will resist dust, moisture and rust.


Advanced Thermal Management

When you're pushing 2600 watts to your sub, things can heat up. That's why the VM Audio Elux series 15" sub features an extended thermal cooling vented pole piece motor structure for direct air exposure and an aerodynamic direct voice coil surface-cooling system with high surface area for fast cooling.


Installation Flexibility

Whether you fall on the sealed or ported side of the subwoofer enclosure debate, the VM Audio Elux series 15" subwoofer can do either. With both dual and single impedance configurations, the EXW15 can do it all.

INNOVATIONS
AND TECHNOLOGIES

Vibraducer Cone
Surface vibrations across the cone diaphragm surface can cause your low frequency sounds to muddle. We use an extremely light and durable cone with vibraducer technology that integrates pressed vertical lines on the cone to reduce unwanted surface vibrations for smooth and clean listening experience.
Linear-Flex Dampening
Keeping the cone diaphragm stable is critical to purity of sound and also to the proper functioning of your subwoofer. Our revolutionary linear motion control provides the diaphragm with incredible stability to deliver fresh unadulterated sound and to avoid damage to your equipment.
Surface-Cooling
When you push up to 2600 watts of energy into your subwoofer it can cause things to heat up. VM Audio's advanced voice coil dissipates heat very quickly through its large surface area and also from direct airflow from a vented pole piece motor structure.

My elux 15 review.

 
Written by Shauncox26 on Mar 16, 2014
First off I wanna say I was chosen to do a review as a third party on caraudio.com. This sub shipped fast and was double boxed. Only thing I found wrong was on the beauty ring there was 5 white scratches or scuffs on the side. It has a huge magnet cover to protect the massive 10-15lb motor of this subwoofer. It's nice if u r into that kind of thing. The wide roll surround is not my favorite, but it felt thick and durable. The suspension felt a bit soft compared to a similarly rated sub. Won't get into brand naming yet. The leads looked small for a 1300rms sub. These subs are rated for 1300 which they will take for a few seconds in a burp. Due to thermal limits of the sub I wouldn't recommend anything over 800 daily. It is quite impressive on 600-800 nice output in the 30-50hz region. I used a 3.67ft^3 tuned to 33hz using 2 4" areos. I used my entire library to get a good feel for this sub. On rock like breaking ben, linkin park, it kept up well with the electronic bass. It staggered a few times on the quick notes of drummers like metallica's Lars. It had no problem with the majority of rap songs low songs were good down to about 30hz before it became hollow sounding. A few dubset songs were played and those seemed to be the sweet spot for the subs electronic notes in the 35-50 hz region. Country was a joke as always have to boost the signal to clipping to notice the output I like from a sub. Overall a nice step up from their shaker series and a good bang for your buck. I will recommend this sub again to anyone looking for good smooth bass in a $73 package. Nice job lucky and u other people at VMi for another great budget friendly product.

Bang for your buck!

 
Written by Gumby688 from Fryeburg on Mar 21, 2014

I was sent this sub to test out. I was happy to see it quickly shipped and arrived via FED-EX but it was beat up badly the trim ring was crushed and the frame was bent. I notified VM and within a few mins I received an email telling me another sub was on the way along with a return auth and label. AWESOME!!! service. 2 Days later the replacement arrived and I must say for the price I was thoroughly impressed with the build quality for the price point. I already had a 3.3 cubic foot sealed box built and quickly and easily installed it with the included screws. I ran this single 15 in my Volvo wagon on a APSM 1500 amp and I am happy to report it preformed way above what you would expect for the price. On rock tracks it was tight and punchy and kept up with no issues. I then played some bass tracks and again I was impressed it really shined  in the 35-45hz range with very healthy extension down to 25hz. I was running about 800 watts to the sub and it never had any issues with bottoming out. I would absolutely recommend this sub to anyone on a tight budget who wants top notch bang for the buck. Thanks for letting me test this sub VM Innovations you guys are great!

Powerful sound at a minimal cost!

 
Written by Engineer from Houston on Mar 7, 2014

I was recently sent a 15” Dual 4 ohm version of this ELUX subwoofer (EXW15) for the purpose of trial and review. I’ll start by saying that shipping was very quick, as usual. I love buying from VMInnovations because I generally find the best prices on the net from VMI and shipping is always fast. Upon opening the box, I was excited to see a nice and clean cone with a durable rubber surround. I pulled the woofer out of the box and noticed the nice push terminals and motor cover on the back side as well. This cover is not simply magnetized to the motor as most low end woofers are. This is securely adhered to the motor structure and seems to provide a good amount of protection to the magnets themselves. This is great because typically, subwoofers will get moved around a good bit and magnets can shift or get damaged. This cover should keep that from happening.

Prior to this test, I had built a large ported enclosure tuned to roughly 29Hz because I enjoy a lower and flatter response out of my subwoofer stages. I was initially worried that this tuning was too low for the ELUX woofer but the suspension stiffness, motor force, and power recommendation all seem to work well together, letting this woofer dip into the 20hz response realm. The amp driving this woofer is a JBL GTO24001 in a jeep cherokee, which produces over 2400w at 2 ohms meaning I had plenty of power on tap for this woofer. I kept the gain low in the beginning to let the suspension warm up and break in a little. After a few hours of listening, I turned the power up considerably. According to data I have taken in the past, the woofer should have been receiving roughly 1800w of CLEAN power, which is over RMS. While I don’t recommend this for most people, I was careful and actually delighted to know that the woofer could handle that kind of power for hours on end. The woofer was able to keep up with fast paced low frequency rhythms and it absolutely crushed low tones. I tested this woofer with classical, dubstep, hip hop, and rock in order to get an idea of where it performed best. I kept the power up for most rock songs in order to really feel the double bass sections and push the woofers hard. It kept up well and sounded very musical. During dubstep and hip hop, the thunder from this thing would flex my roof, my windshield, windows, etc. It is a true ground pounder. I would say it works well with all genres.

We must keep in mind that this is a budget friendly woofer so I would like to compare it to woofers that cost a similar amount except that it outperforms all woofers in its price range that I can recall so let’s take it a step further and compare it to something more pricy. For instance, the Kicker L7. Before the Solo X, the L7 was kicker’s flagship woofer and they were hard to find for under $300. This woofer sounds much cleaner and gets just as loud as the L7 I used to own on a similar amount of power. I’ve also many other mainstream woofers such as the Rockford Power T0, Alpine Type R, a handful of Maxxsonics built woofers, and many others. This woofer hangs with those more expensive woofers and can take a ton of abuse at a fraction of the price.

I would recommend this subwoofer for anybody looking to for a budget friendly system that wants loud and clean bass. It has been the best of both worlds in terms of SQ and SPL, especially in its price range. This is Kicker L7 loudness with a Kicker Comp price. Alpine Type R loudness at a Type E price. Rockford T0 loudness at a P1 Price. Bang for the buck!

Elux 15" subwoofer review

 
Written by 97accordalpine from Erie, Pa on Feb 20, 2014

When I received the sub it was double boxed. Upon opening the factory box I was slightly dissapointed how the sub was packaged inside the box. It had fallen through the cardboard support and was resting on the bottom of the box. Despite this the sub was undamaged. The sub itself looks very nice and feels solid. The leads were nicely stitched to the spider. The rubber surround and cone had a solid feel to them.    

I mounted it in a 4cu ft. ported box tuned to 32hz.  For being a low cost subwoofer it performed pretty well. The bass was nice and tight. In my setup got loud around 38hz and up although it didn't really seem to like the lows that much. I was giving it about 850 watts and I believe that it was a bit too much.  I would say 400-600 would be about the safe zone, so ignore the power ratings. 

Overall this would be an excellent choice for someone new to car audio, on a tight budget, or someone just looking for some extra thump.

My review of VM Audio Elux 15"

 
Written by 97accordalpine from Erie, PA on Mar 3, 2014

This sub arrived to me double boxed. I was slightly dissapointed to see that cardboard support inside the factory box had let the sub slip through. It had alot of area to move around although the sub was not damaged due to this. The speaker itself felt fairly solid. It looks really nice.  After getting some play time on the sub I was rather impressed. I had it in a 4.0^3ft ported box tuned to 32hz. It got loud from 38hz and up and sounded pretty tight while doing it.  The bass was tight and sub responded quickly.  Some cons I found were that it does not like anything much below 36hz. I gave it around 1k watts but quickly found that it was way too much. Ignore the power ratings!!!! I would say 500-750 watts is plenty.   

Overall I think this sub would be great for someone new to audio, or just a basshead on a budget. This sub is cheap and does about everything it is supposed to.
