Summary: Hey, if you want a big beat sound for smaller vehicles, please invest your money into a pair of these speakers!!! These speakers provide the hard hitting bass that you want without eating up valuable storage space IF installed correctly.

Summary: I installed this subwoofer into my Smartcar and now I can turn it up real loud and vibrate around the parking lot of Walmart. My friends and I all have these in our Smartcars and we just vibrate around sometimes bumping into each other and people. It's good fun.
Summary: Coming from a ten inch sub previously, I found this lacking in the SPL but much better in terms of sound quality. It does really hit lows nicely even comparable to a ten inch, but not as boomy. Some may prefer more boom, but perhaps a ported box would help. I still need to tweek my settings so I might still be able to improve its sound.
Summary: I installed 2 of these in my coupe. theyre both splitting 500 watts from a single amp in a sealed box. its more than enough bass to really feel it. you dont always need the huge woofers for good bass!
Conclusion: Great subs for rock and pop. They lack the bass response you will want for hip hop, rap and dance music. I went with the 10" because 80% of the music I listen to is rock. If I could do it all over I would go with the 12". Besides that this is a great sub box with a great set of subs, made the JL Audio way, made right!
