The Massive Audio HippoXL152R Is Back In Stock

COMMERCE, CA (07.29.22) – For a few years now, the Massive Audio award winning HippoXL subwoofer lineup has been knocking people’s socks off and scaring small children. Behold the HippoXL152R.  Massive Audio went a little overboard with the HippoXL152R.  Maybe the R stands for Ridiculous.  But let’s get serious, as this sub is all about the most serious kind of bass.  The HippoXL152R is weighing in with a staggering 430 oz, with a low carbon steel double stack motor, aluminum former and large pole vent as well as added rear venting to ensure years of keeping high temperatures under control during long periods of hammering away. 

 The oversized R motor gives it away, setting the XL152R apart from the rest of the HippoXL lineup. The excessive size of the motor is a must when trying to control the monstrous Made in USA 4” anodized voice coil. Speaking of that voice coil, it is guaranteed to soak up 3000 watts rms/ 6000 watts peak power when driven hard. The USA Made voice coil from Florida is an absolute must when it comes to a competition winning, high output subwoofer such as this. 

 Producing that tremendous bass is the Kevlar Fiber reinforced non-pressed paper cone. Keeping that Kevlar Fiber cone in check are a pair of oversized Nomex spiders. To finish off the build is the Massive Audio signature red cone stitching and a fiberglass dust cap. This sub not only makes a statement with its intimidating size, it makes a statement with the staggering output. The HippoXL152R is a SPL cheat code subwoofer… Guaranteed performance when a paired with our Massive Audio Drago D6 Monoblock amplifier. 

HippoXL152R: Ultra High Output / Extreme Excursion / Competition Proven Design

Warning: Extreme levels of sound pressure with this combination can can be dangerous. HippoXL152R and Drago D6 Monoblock amplifier are designed to be used with Upgraded charging system and additional batterie(s) Only. Not for use in Stock electrical systems.

Massive Audio at Slamology 2022 in Indy

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (06.27.22) – Hundreds of vendors and thousands of enthusiasts packed the Lucas Oil Raceway for Slamology 2022 June 11th and 12th. Massive Audio was a standout.

“We would like to thank all Team Massive Audio members for helping promote the Massive Audio brand at Slamology 2022. A special thanks to Jeremy and the “Pimpala” posting over 161 dB with HippoXL 8” beating cars with 12” and 15” woofers in the lanes,” Rigo Ibarra related for Massive Audio.

Jeremy Roller and the ‘Pimpala’ posted over 161 dB at Slamology in Indy.

Continuing, Ibarra related, “Also a special shout out goes to Cabe Sipes, of Pimp My Ride fame, for building the Hyundai SUV to show off Massive Audio’s sound quality capabilities. Many commented it was the best sounding car at Slamology. Cabe was told by show officials, that if the SUV would have had upgraded rims and a body kit it would have taken 1st place and not 5th place at the show out of 74 cars that entered.”

“As a company Massive Audio is doing all it can to not raise prices in support of its’ dealers. Massive Audio has held its pricing for the last three years unlike many other brands that have recently raised their pricing, two to three times, in the last year or so. Massive Audio is a supporter of authentic pricing and helping its’ customers out in times of need,” Ibarra concluded.

Massive Audio is looking for a few select “influencer” dealers to help with product development and to showcase products and installs. Call 323) 262-2262, ask for JR or email at for further information on perks offered. Hablamos Español.

“I am thrilled to be part of the ‘Massive Audio Revolution’, lead business efforts and extend the team to better serve our representatives, distributors, and customers.” I had previously served customers and competed against Massive Audio for many years. I noticed the product do very well in the competition lanes. Their designs had noteworthy features, although like many OEM/ODM companies, they were focused on manufacturing instead of marketing and lacked emphasize on product intricacies or properly explaining innovative characteristics. After having heard many good things about the products, people and that the company was embracing change, I was delighted to join the team.

Massive Releases New DRAGO DP10K 5,600 Watt RMS Amplifier

CITY OF COMMERCE, CA (10.26.2020) – Massive Audio has released the new Drago DP10K Amplifiers for 2020.

Want to crank it up to 11, here is your chance with DRAGO SERIES Amplifiers. The Massive Audio DP10K Digital Amplifier solves the problem of powering those megawatt Subwoofers so they can achieve max SPL without straining. The DP10K is an all-Digital, Ultra-High-Speed Switching, Mono Block “Monster” with rated power of 5,000 Watts RMS that can achieve a true output of 5,600 Watts RMS @ 1 ohm @ 16V.

Chuck Kenney, National Sales Manager, holds the new Massive Audio Drago DP10K Amplifier.

The first impression is that this is one rugged yet beautiful crafted Amplifier! Upon further inspection you will realize how compact this powerhouse really is, this amplifier measures in at only 3.07” x 9.11” x 13.07”. You will also notice the twin full time exhaust fans that insure this “Firebreather” is always running cool.

We ensure your system is protected with our 6 Way Protection circuit including an LED Clip indicator to correctly match the Gain and RCA inputs. Additionally, adjustable Hi Pass and Low Pass crossovers along with a parametric equalizer with a variable 0-10dB bass boost allow for complete control. Another unique feature is our “Flat” mode switch enabling you to bypass any sound coloration for testing and comparison purposes. When utilizing an electronic crossover, like the Massive TRI-XO, in combination with the FLAT setting on the amplifier this allows you to bypass all equalization on the amp and utilize the signal input from the electronic crossover. This eliminates the cumbersome task of configuring multiple settings on the amp and crossover.
