Conclusion: I have installed a pair of these in my element with a small apline mrx-m50 amp about 6 months ago and these subs still have the same great sound quality. They fill my car with great bass after properly tuned. These are perfect for open cabs for most suvs. These won't be rattling the glass of the houses you drive by but they make your car wobble. These sws are great for someone who wants a moderately priced sub and yet have power to them.
Conclusion: I own two of these subs wired at 4 ohms each driven by its own Clarion XR2110 Mono amp. WOW what an awesome combination. They hit so hard. So hard in fact that the screw down terminals loosened and the wires fell out of the sub box. I had to Loctite them down. I totally recommend these subs. They are awesome.
Conclusion: I have 2 of these and have had them for about 2 1/2 years now. I have them hooked up to an alpine mono amp in a sealed enclosure. I play them as loud as i can every day and they still deliver amazingly smooth yet extremely loud sound. I Will be getting these again.
Conclusion: I love this sub. I have a 96 Chevy 1500 standard cab truck. I had to build 2 custom boxes to go behind the seats and the only subs that I found to fit were these Alpines. Shallow mount depth, great power handling, flexible installation options with the dual voice coils, look great, and still hit hard and clear like a higher priced sub. I have a Boss Phantom PH2.800 amp pushing 260 watts RMS @4 ohms to each sub wired in series. Sounds great.

Conclusion: I bought two Alpine subwoofers 6 months ago and they still work great with no flaws whatsoever... nice clean and powerful bass, nice looking and sexy. I would recommend this subwoofer to anyone looking for more bass in their car!
Conclusion: I really like this sub woofer, it is very well put together. It can hit hard and it is powered by compact class D putting out 500 watts rms. I have it tuned to put out 70 hz and below. Its frame and magnet structure is more conventional than its larger and more $$ big brothers but sound wise it is very good if you don't have the space or the budget for one of the Alpine big boys. I think it is a great investment.
Conclusion: When you can make the mirrors in an f350 shake or the passengers feel like they just stepped out of the message parlor, you definitely have something going good, like good ol' fashioned BASS that makes ya feel worm and tingly inside. built my own box and stuck these bad betty's in my truck and for a super crew cab these just plain rock the block.....
