Conclusion: Installed this baby in a super crew sound sealed box and put it in my 2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD. I am pushing it with a Rockford Fosgate 500 watt amp running in parallel @ 2ohms and it sounds great. Cant go wrong with this sub.
Conclusion: I have a bachelor's degree in sound design, so I have particular tastes. I already had installed db series door speakers in my car, and really just wanted to complete the set, hoping that it would be a good match. It was.
Summary: I had to replace my jl audio 10w3 dual voice coil sub in my mustang jl audio stealth box. It lasted me a good 13 years. The Polk Audio db popped right in and looks nice. Build quality seems really good. The sensitivity seems really good also and the bass in my Mustang is back!
Summary: I always was a FAN of Polk Audio, but didn't want to spend the money... So when I seen this "DEAL" I jumped on it... After listening to my setup, my friend ordered.....
Pros: The speaker is built pretty solid w/ a fat rubber surrounding ... The dust cap design is cool an stylish..
Cons: Still has old style terminal's.. They give screws, but no Allen wrench bit.. Took time to bolt them in box, but I guess less chance of a slippage to poke your Polk... Lol *The sound makes up for it... Bass is clean & Deeeep!!
Summary: Only reason I gave the "value" category a 5 star is because I got this sub half price. Within the first minute of hearing this thing I smelled heating up.... made me very nervous. But maybe it was some excess glue on the rubber?
Pros: Good highs
Cons: Smelled heat..but went away..still nervous on it blowing
