Conclusion: If you're looking for sound quality, you'll have to look elsewhere, this isn't your subwoofer for SQ. It gets loud and boomy, and anyone reviewing this product with 5/5 on everything only cares about volume, but not sound quality. People might write "it shakes my car man" or "it slams so hard" which it does do well. It does get loud indeed if that's what you're looking for in a cheap/value/budget subwoofer. The subwoofer does look nice though, and the material is tough.
Conclusion: Got these subs in a sound ordnance ported box and WOW do they freaking slam. I have them on an Alpine mrp-m650 giving them 600 watts and they couldn't be happier. These are so loud, clear, and punchy. I love them.
Conclusion: I absolutely love these things. I bought them because they were pretty cheap and well these things KNOCK!!! I have a HiFi1200.1 to these and well lets just say they use all 1200 watts. My neighbors hate me i make their pictures move when i turn it up!!

Conclusion: I have a Jc power 1000 watts and it bumpps greaaat! Got a vented box with it. Best 10" subwoofer I have ever heard. I could hear more bass than the speakers. I got two of these subwoofers. It thumps so hard that it makes my back rear window shake a little though, and makes my mirror go crazzzzy!

Conclusion: This driver has a defined rattle to it. I've had it in a sealed and a ported box both matched to it in specs. It is underpowered at the moment and I have given up on locating the source of the rattle. Now it's time for another brand.
Conclusion: I bought 2 of them and had them boomin for about 4 months. Then one just stopped working. Customer support is wonderful they gave me credit and got it replaced. Then the other went up in smokes one month after being paired with the replacement. Sent it back then the next day the replacement stopped working. Didnt change any settings on the amp. Will not be purchasing these subs anymore.

Conclusion: At first I was unsure of whether the Alpine PDX5 amplifier would power two 1043D's enough to produce decent bass in my sedan. I was pleasantly surprised by the volume and by the frequencies that this combination could achieve. I prefer clear and balanced music in my vehicle over making myself deaf and these subs achieved my goal.
