Installed this in my 2010 Subaru Legacy to replace the horrible sounding factory Harman Kardon sub. This one is great, especially if you like SQ! Hits hard, fast, and you can feel it. Very accurate sound, and a great price! Get it.

Powering one of these in a 1 cu. ft. sealed box at a 2-ohm final load to a PPI ION 5-channel theoretically providing 350 watts. While there is a clear difference in SQ compared to the very high-end subs in my other vehicle, this sub is a good performer (especially when factoring in price). I find them to be smooth, fast-acting overall, and it will get loud off of just "350 watts" (or whatever the little PPI ION realistically produces. At least in my box and vehicle with my amp, it doesn't get as low as I'd expect a 12" sub to go but everywhere else it's pretty flat and natural sounding. As for build/finishing quality, this is where I am not impressed. Properly built subwoofers will have a screw hole that is perfectly directly under the center of the dust cap when the logo is level. In my case, when the logo is level, the lowest screw is slightly to the right. In addition, the ribs on the cone also do not make sense. It is as if this wasn't assembled with alignment in mind. This is something I notice but nobody else will notice, I'm sure. I really don't get the continuing use of dual voice coils in car audio when a single voice coil can achieve the same thing, but the speaker wire terminals were of the banana plug screw down variety

Excellent sub for the money. It is well built. Not quite as potent as my Alpine Type R, but that was expected, and this is much cheaper than that subwoofer. It has good sound quality. Currectly running in a ported box at 34hz, but I think it would sound better sealed in my setup. Seems to be a bit power hungry. Good addition to any system, but don't expect to shake the block with only one.
