Summary: I'm driving this with a 500 watt RMS amp and it is more than enough for my Mazda 3's trunk. Be aware though that this is only really good for very low frequencies (up to 200hz) whereas some subs go up a bit higher. But why buy a sub for anything but very low frequencies?
Summary: Awesome sound, great response, quality construction. I have mine in a sealed box for sound quality and I run about 370 watts into it at 2 ohm and it sounds amazing. No distortion what so ever. If your not looking for monkey bass and want good clean bass that is extremely accurate and is way better than Wal-Mart crap then this speaker is for you. Dang thing is heavy as hell though. But I look at it as a good thing. I don't want some flimsy crap in my system.
Summary: Love these, I have these hooked up to a Hifonics 1200 watt amp at 1ohm for a year now. I have them reverse mounted so that the boxes would fit in my trunk better. I'm very happy with these, I've had 0 troubles and I've been pushing them pretty hard.
Summary: I bought this product from discount jungle which I found out the hard way is not an authorized pioneer dealer, thus Pioneer's 1 year warranty is invalid. The sub was brand new and sounded great, and I had it paired with the champion series amp by Pioneer, and it still blew after 1 week. No way I could get it replaced, fixed, returned, etc. Should have just given the money I used for this sub to charity or something.
Summary: I purchased two of these and had them professionally installed. I wanted some subs to complement the sound inside the car. The way that I designed the sound it sounds so amazing inside where it matters most when driving compared to outside the car but I still get allot of complements on the subs. If you can afford it with the right amp, I recommend these. and don't forget to get the right enclosure. The size of the box will make a big difference in the sound produced.
Summary: I have 2 of them wired for 2 ohms hooked up to a PYLE PLA4478 I have it set in a to 2 channel configuration at 2000 watts per channel and the crossovers set at 9 db its amazing it makes the mirror shake really good the trunk rattle to the point of the paint coming off just make sure all your music is 320kps so u don't get distortion and battery has to be at least 750 cold cranking amps and altanator can charge that battery without slowing down the engines idle rpm when u...
