I have 1 10" in a sealed enclosure in my crew cab pickup. It sounds great & hits hard!

At $90 this sub pounds like subs twice the cost. I have two of these in 3.2 cubes tuned to 30hz with 31.5 sq inches of port area. Plays stupid flat and can handle more than what it's rated, at least mechanically. I have them on about 750wrms and did get them a little stinky once but never bottomed out even on stupid low notes like the new 2 Chainz CD or your pick of any Decaf track.

May 27, 2010 Great budget subwoofer

I bought a pair of these for a friend. I installed them the recommended sealed enclosure (.75cuft ea) and they were powered with a 320wrms amplifier. Note that the cut out dimensions in the manual is not correct, its actually a bit smaller.

These subs sound very smooth and can get decently loud. This model excels with jazz, light rock, and adult contemporary music (very smooth) but bottoms out in bass heavy types of music.

Overall, my friend likes the subwoofers a lot, they suit his taste of music and for the money they are definitely worth the money.

On a side note, these subs are pretty cheap looking, not that it has anything to do with performance.

I became a car audio junkie relatively recently and while requesting advice on a good budget setup through mainly online car audio formus, I came a across this product. I purchased two of the GT5-10's and a Rockford Fosgate R500-1 Amp. The RMS on these are 275 and the Birthsheet Rated RMS on the R500-1 was 537 at 2 ohms so after wiring the subs parallel, I ended up with an almost perfect match-up. I originally planned to build a custom ported box but due to my lack of tools and carpentry knowledge, I went with a pre-built ported box with 1.2 cubic ft. of airspace per chamber. Install was easy and they look great! They handle the 270ish watts like a pro and sounds awesome! Would definitely recommend!
