Conclusion: These subs hit hard. I have them in a sealed box and they pound. I am using them with a Crunch 3500.1 and I actuly need to do the Big Three Upgrade as well as a battery and alternator ugrade. I am wired in at 2 ohm and these subs are taking the hit. They sound awesome.
Conclusion: Bought one of these to replace 2 Kicker Comp10s that I've had for 4-5 yrs. I have it hooked up to 300w (Kicker ZX300.1) and this one pounds louder and sounds much smoother and much better overall than the Kickers did together. I absolutely love this subwoofer.

Conclusion: Powering one of these in a 1 cu. ft. sealed box at a 2-ohm final load to a PPI ION 5-channel theoretically providing 350 watts. While there is a clear difference in SQ compared to the very high-end subs in my other vehicle, this sub is a good performer (especially when factoring in price).
Conclusion: Let me cut to the chase here! These subs are the bomb! All of JBLs products are wickedley underrated! The old saying is "You get what you pay for" this is not the case at all here!! You get wayyyy more than what you pay for!
Conclusion: Excellent sub for the money. It is well built. Not quite as potent as my Alpine Type R, but that was expected, and this is much cheaper than that subwoofer. It has good sound quality. Currectly running in a ported box at 34hz, but I think it would sound better sealed in my setup.

Summary: First - I am coming from a 12" Infinity Kappa sub, which as the only one I ever owned. It went down to 18hz!. I cannot seem to find one that get's that low anymore, but I knew from in the 80's when I was a child and someone gave my mother a pair of out time JBL 3-way speakers, that JBL was a brand I...
