VM Audio EXMW10 ELUX 10″ Competition Marine Subwoofer Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
My son is a stereo installer. He does amazing work! He’s been installing stereo’s in cars, trucks, boats, homes and RV’s. This kid is so talented that other businesses have stolen him away! I could go on and ON but, then you would be jealous! Zachary has been installing for 15 years. He KNOWS speakers, subwoofers, alarms, stereos, dvd players. He was the PERFECT person to write this review!

EXMW10 10” Competition Marine Subwoofer VM AudioVM Audio sent me a EXMW10 is a 10” Competition Marine Subwoofer to review.  Here is Zac’s review:

My initial thoughts: The “Features” printed on the side of the box were impressive. Besides the expected weather proofing and corrosion resistant parts, I was happy to see a 2″ voice coil and great sensitivity rating of 90db. Frequency response of 30 mz to 800hz is good as well.

What’s in the box:
Supplied: 10″ white gasket. VERY nice to have! AND in white to boot! Rarely supplied now days.
10″ cut out and a screw hold template. Also very nice to have.
Product registration and warranty card.
Full color installation guide. Really nice manual with T/S parameters and enclosure designs.

Getting started: The subwoofer comes assembled with grill. Grill is sturdy and attaches strong. PVC framing makes this sub woofer is very light. Yet you can still feel the weight in the magnet. This is a good sign! Binding post is nice but not sure how they will withstand the elements. Overall the finish is very nice and stylish.

Listening: Started off with sign waves to in the suspension of the subwoofer. The sub played well within the claimed frequency range. (Frequency Response: 27Hz – 360Hz) For the music testing I played a few CD’s that I am very familiar with. Metallica’s “And Justice For All” the subwoofer handled the double bass really well. Snappy, tight and accurate.  Next I sued JB Project’s “Brombo!” CD and George Duke’s “Dukey Treats”. The subwoofer played well, had a little trouble with the low extending bass guitars. It played all the drums well and accurately. The subwoofer played all the drums well and accurately, and blended decently with my high pass speakers.

Final thoughts: This is a GREAT subwoofer for the price, actually it sounds like an expensive subwoofer! The EXMW10 sounds great in the open environment of a boat. (which sounds reduntint but you would be surprised at how many don’t!!)  With the proper amplifier, power, tuning and enclosure this is a fantastic woofer. I have this subwoofer in the footwell of my boat and it sounds great!!  Two thumbs WAY UP!!

      Music is a language that can stir your soul and transport you to the land of a composer’s imagination. A stereo system is the technology that lets you recreate that same magic in your own living space by immersing you in the sound field produced by two loudspeakers and associated equipment.
