Question MDS Audiophile 12" car subwoofer. Need help finding model/info.

Hello, I have an old subwoofer that is from the 1980.s (i think). Many people think that it is an audiophile series. Since I'm not very good with subwoofers i ask you guys for help instead. I've googled like crazy without finding anything. I'm going to build a ported box with this subwoofer (right now It's in a sealed box). That's why i need some info about it. Greetings!

Without a model number I think the only way to get the specs would be to measure them.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

Thanks for your answer! since I'm new at this, I don't have the tools needed to measure. also i don't know how to do it, I would need to know two things.

1. The wattage. My guess is 300 - 400W at the most.
2. I need to know the Hertz It's supposed to handle. How can i figure this out by testing it myself?

Thanks.

You can use REW to measure the parameters. http://www.roomeqwizard.com/wizardhe...small.html#top
The program can be downloaded here: http://www.roomeqwizard.com/wizardhelpv5.zip

That sub is so old that there seems to be very little online. Here is the same sub in a ported enclosure:

You could put together a measurement system to get the parameters but, whats the point? One can find a high performing modern day sub for about $150-$200. Something like the Dayton Audio RS and Ultimax series drivers or the Stereo Integrity drivers, etc. Is this going to be for home or car?
