Summary: It does exactly what you think it will do. I had pretty terrible stock speakers and no sub. I replaced my receiver, all my speakers, and the lack of bass just killed me. As long as you don't expect this to blow your doors off and you are just using this as a filler then it is wonderful. I love the remote it comes with, I find myself fiddling with it all the time. It is installed under my passenger seat and there were no issues with the install.
Summary: My head unit is a Naka-NA780. I recommend using a low level out. From experience I can say that the hi-outs don't offer the same level of control or low hz sensitivity. Heck using high level outs is akin to using buckshot when a .22 will not only be more cost effective but more efficient and efficiency is what we're talking about here folks. This powered sub provides an abundance of usable bass across a wide range of frequency.
Summary: At times I love this enclosure. The controls allow me to adjust the bass levels for the song, which is a lot of fun. It reminds me of the "Loudness" buttons you used to see on older stereos that boosted bass response for lower listening levels. I find that while bass guitar lines jump out at you, the bass drums are somewhat limited at times. The sound improvement overall is fantastic though, and I am hearing details in songs that I have otherwise missed over the decades.
Summary: I was very disappointed in this subwoofer. I'm using it a 2006 silverado extended cab and listen to mainly country and classic rock. I didn't think I'd need anything too powerful because I was just looking for something to fill in the bass for the type of music I listen to. I was going to send it back but after spending $50 plus dollars to install it I don't think I'm going to because I'd have to pay to have another sub installed and it's not worth my time and money at...
Summary: Excellent sub. Easy to install and very small; about the size of a 12-disc CD changer. I mounted under the passenger side of a 1999 Camry front seat. Filled in the missing bass frequency. I was going to build a 5th or 6th order bandpass using 6.5 inch sub driver but when I added up all the parts, it was close to $180. Figured it was better to leave it to the professional. Now this is nothing like a JL 10 inch sub but then you lose part of the trunk.
Summary: I own a 2003 Mazda Miata that came stock with Bose speakers. They sound great but I wanted a bit more bass. Unfortunately this product doesn't deliver much. So if that's what you're looking for I suggest you look elsewhere. But for me, this is all I can fit and will most likely keep it. Sound quality is good and the install was relatively easy. Not bad for the money.
the shipping was great and the return process simple

Summary: System did not seem to be compatable with a Chevrolet Bose system, or at least I could not figure out the correct wires to drive the sub. I did hook it up to a separate radio and it worked, however it did not produce very much bass, and seemed to rattle when I cranked it up to 3/4 volume. I was hoping to just add some additional bass as my Bose does not provide any deep lows.
Summary: I mounted this under the drivers seat of my 2011 Jeep Wrangler. This is the only sub that I could find that would fit there. I believe pre- 2011 Wranglers have more room but due to interior redesign in 2011, there is less room under the seat for some reason. The sub fits perfectly under the seat when routed in from the rear. Needed to bend the under seat wiring bracket up slightly to clear the top of the sub.
Summary: Installed in a 2001 jeep wrangler tj and couldn't be happier. Installed under the front seat in about 2 hours after watching a few youtube videos (almost a perfect fit, a little sticks out but with the seat down, you can't see it). Based on reviews, I was expecting less, but it's actually pretty punchy with my kenwood excelon head unit. Had to buy a 10 dollar RCA jack cord, but other than that everything was included.
Summary: Installation was easy and does not require you to drill through the firewall for power. You can tap power through the car's fusebox as the manual says. You will need to get an adapter to do that and it's relatively cheap at the local auto shop. The bass is pretty good for something this tiny. It's meant to provide fuller sound and definitely not meant to rattle your trunk. Don't expect your chest to hurt from the bass. Do expect to hear a wider range of bass and mids.
