Custom built one inch for cabinets and using bpt60 tweeters grille covers fit perfect over this sub because of the way i put together the boxes these speakers will never need an amplifier to drive them.

It might only be a 8 inch subwoofer, but it can handle alot of power. The magnet is not to big so you can fit almost anywhere. Surprisingly for the price it is marked at, the sub is made pretty well. Would fully recommend it to any one replacing there factory sub or to any one who wants just that extra kick, but nothing to extreme.

I bought this speaker when it was on sale for around $20 with shipping. I put it in a small ported box with a 300rms amp and this thing sounds really good. I wasnt looking for extreme eargasm bass just some fuller sound and this sub hits the spot. It has a nice range even hits the lows on most songs without a problem. Overall a real nice speaker for its size and price range.

This fits perfect in my 99' Ford Expedition. Should fit most other years if you take some time to fit it to the sub box. Sounds like a much more expensive speaker.
Six months later and still going strong. Why pay more.

I bought this as a replacement to put in my 2001 expedition factory sub box. Fit fine just need to drill new holes. I do have a small FLI amp supplying the power. I would recommend for the cost and the small depth to fit in a factory sub box. I have owned this for over a1 year no problems, it's used daily.

These little subs are great, so much power from such a small unit. Puts the old 12 in sub to shame. Would happily buy more and install in future cars and recommend to others who want big bass and be able to use their boot too.

for anyone who gives this 8" tweeter a 2 star or higher rating has never heard a good subwoofer in their lives! My 3" mids have more bass output than these worthless subs do. Like all Boss audio equipment the best place for these is the garbage.

June 7, 2012 decent for mid bass

This sub is ok for mid bass, but it just can't deliver a good hard thump that a good quality sub can. You do get what you pay for. The coil in this sub is small. Like 1" small. I do not recommend that they be ran at high volume for extended periods of time. They can't handle it as well as a big name sub, but they are a decent sub for mids on low key power.

I used this sub to replace my Ford Explorer Sport factory sub that had dry rotted. The factory sub was a little bigger, but this sub still fits. You just have to drill new screw holes, and use a bolt, fender washers, and silicone to cover the rear mounting hole in the plastic sub box. 6 months and still going strong.

I bought 2 of these to replace the stock 8" speakers to get the mid bass, and they worked fine just running through the car stereo, but i hooked them to a weak 300 watt sony amp and one fried so i hooked the one thats still good back to the headunit until i can buy something that will take a little more power.

I bought this to replace stock blown expedition subwoofer, waste of money guaranteed. Rather buy an mtx thunder 4700 that really pounds and is only 200 max plus I tested it with a Phoenix gold r.5.0.1 amp and it began to fry, this was playing at 4 ohms 200 watts input.

I had a new stereo I just bought and for whatever reasons, the Boss went out. Everything was installed correctly, just doesn't work anymore. It worked with the new stereo for about three days. Only about a year worth of working, not durable. Overall it worked great until it went out.

Installed this subwoofer in a sealed enclosure mounted in the truck. Bridged the amp to deliver 360 watts to the sub. Played the system once per week. After six short weeks the speaker began to "rattle" even though it was rated at 400 watts.
