Conclusion: It has a clear hard hitting sound as kenwood does and Super simple to install. I had mine playing in 20 min. I have 2 in an extended cab truck with factory tuner and the sound is incredible.
Conclusion: This powered sub was a perfect fit underneath the back seat of my 2011 crew cab Silverado. I wasn't ready to invest in a whole system just yet, and just wanted to add to the factory setup. This sub provides just the right amount of base for my truck and also allowed me to divert the rest of the power to the mids and highs of the speakers. This really made my entire sound come alive compared to before the sub.
Conclusion: I installed this unit as part of an upgrade system in a 1988 Mr2 where there is very little room for anything. I fastened it behind the seat and I can still get the roof panel in there as well. The control tucks nicely in front of the ashtray door and I can easily adjust the bass volume ans frequency sound by feel which does vary from song to song. Without this unit the system would rely on 3" speakers and it delivers enough low end to make driving to Jeff Beck a joy.
Conclusion: This sub is awful. Gives no bass whatsoever. You have to adjust the two dials for just about every song to try to get some bass, or to keep it from bottoming out. Disappointed with this purchase. Surprised Kenwood would put their name on this product.
Conclusion: I installed the KSC-SW10 on the rear floor in my Austin Mini Cooper to add a little more volume to the bottom end of a JVC KD-R810 driving Infinity kappa 42.9i speakers. This sub is ideal for small cars and pickups and for people who do not want to rupture their ear drums. It adds just the right amount of bass to fill out the bottom end when listening at comfortable volume levels, but it will distort if boosted too much.
Conclusion: I had four 6X9's in my truck with a 400W amp - it was missing the "bass" sound that I wanted. The amp was a four way and I needed something that was self-powered. The KSC-SW10 was exactly what I needed - it sounds great and perfectly fit in the space that I had to mount it. I recommend the KSC-SW10 to anyone that is missing the "bass" sound, because it will complete your system.
Conclusion: I purchased this product to add some base to my after market car stereo. I needed an amplified subwoofer that was compact and inexpensive. I did not expect a really powerful sub but enough to make my system sound better. Well I got more than I bargained for! Not only is this little guy compact and inexpensive but the sound quality is excellent! And easy to control with the wired remote. I love it. I would recommend this product to anyone.
