Conclusion: It was an ok sub but the infinity reference 8 inch is much better and has more than 4 Times the bass the sub couldn't push out any heavy bass without over extending the spider making it sound like a loud pop so if your looking for a really good 8 inch sub get an infinity reference it's less expensive and out performs the Rockford any day I have both subs and compared them infinity wins hands down

Conclusion: This 8 inch was purchased for my 2004 acura tl for the rear dash and after realising the magnet was too big and some cutting it fit perfectly in the middle of the rear dash. However, it isnt a closed air sub so i had to either build a casing around it or put it in a box and after some serious thought i put it in a box and its perfect. For trunk space im going to get a custom casing so i can put it back in the rear dash.
Conclusion: I have to say Rockford Fosgate makes good equipment, BUT the down side is you see it in EVERY vehicle on the road. I have 2 Orion HCCA 15's & I have this 8 inch hidden in my center consul for mid bass.
Conclusion: This sub hits hard for being an 8". The design & feel of it is more than I expected. You would think this is a 1000w sub just by the design. I just bought one & wired to 2 ohm in a ported box. I listen to classic rock, hip hop, & reggae and this sounds great for these genres. I would definitely recommend this sub.
Conclusion: Excellent sub for the size and $, but i felt it lacked the depth from the Hz freq i was looking for. It filled the gap the interior speakers were lacking but i personally wanted the deeper sound that a 10"+ sub could deliver.
