Conclusion: I ended up buying this a few weeks ago, and couldnt be happier with it. Install was easy, it looks and sounds great. However, contrary to other reviews you CAN wake people up with this if its tuned in right, haha. It may be small but it can put out some serious bass for its size. I have it sitting behind the drivers seat of my van, and it rattles the whole van if i have it up that loud. Again, this thing looks great, and sounds better.
Conclusion: I was a bit skepticle about going for the 8in sub, but decided to go for it anyway. And wow, I was sooo surprised with how this thing rumbles! The ported hole in the back of the tube blows so much of the bass out its amazing that all that thud comes from that little tube. For that same reason it can get a little "boomy" but with the remote bass control knob it isn't a problem if it bothers you. Since the amp is built in, the install was a breeze in my 99 honda crv.

Conclusion: I bought this for my car and i was overwhelmed with performance, i recommend anyone to buy this if you are just a starter like mself and is lookin for the bass that shakes your mirrors. Perfect 10.
Conclusion: If you are looking for good bass and still need to have space in your trunk this is what you need, the bass is strong and precised. Right now I have the gain up just a bit and I can hear clear strong bass inside my car. I have a Saab 93 sedan and have the box in the trunk with plenty of free space to load other things when I need it. I will recommend this over any under the seat powered based systems, I did purchase a Sound Ordnance™ B-8PT and I was really disappointed.
