Summary: I'm Lou, writing this review for this product we purchased through Mary's Prime account. I'm writing the review because frankly, I don't understand the negative reviews. I've retailed and repped boutique home audio. I've installed custom tri amped car stereo with DSP and all the trimmings. As a custom home builder, I've installed acoustically isolated and optimized home theatre. I've generally been an audio tweak.
Summary: I am still new to car stereo. In the past a couple of months I have installed new Head Unit(Pioneer FHX-700BT) and four new speakers(Polk Audio db651s) myself. Now realizing lack of bass I have purchased this power subwoofer with RCA cables. I chose the empty area between front seats to put the unit. --- installation First you need to disconnect black(-) cable from the battery.
Summary: If space is a premium requirement, look no further and consider the Kenwood KSC-SW111 to fill your bass sounding needs. Installed this on my 2015 Honda Fit LX and located it underneath the front passenger's seat. Am using the OEM HU going through an Audison Bit Ten D sound processor. The Audison has one dedicated sub output which has to match with the Kenwood's dual inputs. I used a 2 to 1 RCA plug converter.
Conclusion: For me is did not want a heavy sound on my car, but just average. Also I did not want to have a large speaker on my car boot. So this was a perfect size that just went under the driver's seat. I like too the remote. I can control the volume. I dont know much about durability coz I have only just installed it in my car.
Summary: I think this little box is amazing. I recently bought a Jeep Wrangler that I have been having loads of fun modifying and updating. It already had a Kenwood Head Unit and after-market speakers in the sound bar. I replaced the stock speakers in the dash with Kenwood 4x6 speakers and that helped, but they are small speakers... I was just missing the bass. My car has a sub and my previous "knock-around" vehicle had dual 12 inch subs.
Summary: Very good compact sub. Good bass response. Very compact. Easy install. I have installed this in a GMC truck under the rear seat and it fills the cab with decent bass to help the 6 speakers in the doors have a bit more punch. The controller is a bit strange in that it is hard wired with a bulky cable, and has a blue LED built in that may or may not match your interior. In my case it fit perfectly into a factory dash pocket with a slight mod to run the cable.
Summary: I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I have 2014 Passat, and it just fit perfectly under my passenger seat. I have an Alpine 45wx4ch Universal Power Pack installed, and the bass coming out of my 6.5 inch Rockford Fosgate Primes was just too puny. This was the perfect compliment. One thing to note--I originally installed this using the speaker outputs coming directly out of the head unit, and could barely hear it. I thought since all it needed was a signal, I'd be fine.
Summary: I installed this inside the cabin, in the passenger footwell, of a mercedes C300. The bass is enhanced, but it's not a real subwoofer. On the plus side, it's the smallest sub available and draws little power with an in line 10 amp fuse. The unit can also be uninstalled easily if you want yo sell the car stock.
Summary: Wow. I've used other compacy powered subwoofers before but this one is tops. It's by far the smallest one. It doesn't have the mirror shaking thump.but you hear it and know it's there. The highest output setting is too much for mu taste.Super easy to install, super easy to setup. If you're looking for something that is just a little more than just rounding out the music, I would highly suggest this one. 2013 Ford F-150 Supercrew.
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.
