You can still see all customer reviews for the product. Top positive review. Reviewed in the United States on January 3, I bought this product in hopes of rejuvenating my system in my 79 D Mercedes Benz. If you own a similar type of vehicle, you'll understand that audio wasn't the most important feature on any vehicle back then.
My speakers had great highs and mids, but could never obtain that "bump" that could round out the system all together. On first receiving this package, you'll be dumbfounded on how shiny and sturdy this sub woofer really is. Weighing in around 9lbs, it can accommodate easily under the seat, or if that isn't an option, you can install it in the passenger floorboard area with plenty of legroom left over.
And trust me, you'll think this thing is not capable of the power it really has, just wait. After installing it and finally testing it out This had so much more power than I expected.
It literally sounds like I have an entirely new sound system. Though there isn't enough bass to rattle your neighbors windows, you can easily achieve that "rumble" in your chest that resonates throughout the car easily.
Even the guys who installed it at a local chain were blown away. The guy had to literally bring in the audio crew and check out how good this TINY sub actually sounded! Even one of the guys asked if I had one of the "tester" subs installed The adjustable knobs to accentuate the sound definitely help out, so make sure you do listen to some of your favorite stuff and adjust until satisfied. Top critical review. Reviewed in the United States on October 11, Edit: it seems that the 8 gauge amp installation kit was the culprit, not the system itself.
However, in the past I've usually been pretty lucky. I got it installed in my MGB convertible, and let me tell you, this thing sounded incredible! I was so pleased to have such good sound in my tiny car, even with the top down. I drove around with it for a day with a smile on my face. The next day I drove to work, again happy as can be, but noticed that the sound wasn't so great on the way home. I got home and looked and had that red light come on during start up. Seems the amp went into protection mode.
So, I let Amazon know and they sent me another one - "next day shipping. Since the car was all set up to accept the amp, including drilling holes in my classic car, I went ahead and ordered a third one. Well, tonight while checking my email, seems Amazon is concerned I will receive another defective unit and is just going to refund my money. They did however send me a list of other vendors who offer it.
It's not worth the headache. I did absolutely love the sound it produced - after a little tweaking. So, believe it or not, I so wanted to give another one a chance. But, having gotten two bad units in a row, I don't think I'll risk it One person found this helpful.

Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. Very easy to set up. I tried the remote control, but decided to use my head unit's subwoofer output control instead. When I unplugged the remote control, I noticed the gain went up to max. So the remote must attenuate whatever settings you've made on the front of the box.
You don't have to attach the remote control for the subwoofer to function. I run mine at maximum gain, minimum 0 bass boost, subsonic filter around 40 Hz, and low pass all the way up at Hz.
The head unit is set to center on the subwoofer output, this setup works perfect. I suppose I could drop back the gain and increase the bass boost, but I'm just looking for clean sound, not boomy. I could also run the subsonic filter at 20 Hz, but I want more consistency between songs that have heavy bass and those that don't.
It is also a good method to reduce unnecessary stress on the amp, speaker, and electrical system. I didn't want to put a sub in my trunk and lose space. I wanted an easy, cheap solution. This was defitely what I needed. There is more power available than I need, even with top down driving test drive. The only downside is the driver seat will not go forward as far as it used to. Highly recommended by me, based on installation and a test drive. I'll come back and comment more if necessary.
For now, rest assured I have a bigger smile on my face. I'm really glad that I decided to order this subwoofer. Initially, I was thinking of getting an amp and two 6"x9"s to fill out the sound of my stock car audio system.
Then I saw this Boss unit listed, and figured that the reviews were so skewed toward the positive that it was worth trying. I am not a car audio aficionado. I do know that the Boss brand does not get much respect among car stereo enthusiasts. Don't let them dissuade you from getting this unit, though.
Tony Levin's fretless bass lines sounded incredible, and really served to show me the value of this subwoofer. I've been running through different albums and genres on CD and ipod to really test this subwoofer out. It does take some trial and error with regard to adjusting the settings, as others have mentioned. I had a bit of difficulty getting this to fit under the passenger seat of my Saab , but figured out a reasonable way to do so.
Otherwise, the installation is quite straightforward. I didn't think to order the installation kit, and instead purchased 8 gauge wire by the foot from Lowes and then buy an 8 gauge fuse holder My recommendation would be to find a suitable installation kit at the same time Great sound inside the truck, you leave it playing get out and shut the door, can barely hear any thing at all, get back in That is about ideal, loud to me, no upset neighbors or cops.
I had read alot about wired remote so I made sure to use it as my first instinct would have been to not use it, but without it no or very little output. This unit is very small, but still puts out large sound.. I have only had it for 2 weeks, so we will see how it holds up long term It blew a fuse, I replaced it and now the fuse does not blow but the unit cuts off before the music starts, red power light comes on, then it shuts off, some part of the power circuit or amp went bad, all reading with the volt meter look good.
I bought this for my CR-V solely off of reading Amazon reviews. I've installed it, tweaked it to my liking and I'll say that it's a pretty decent addition to the low end.
You can install it two ways I chose the latter for security and it's worked out pretty well. If you're looking to trade up from a monoblock amp with a 12" sub to this device, don't be surprised that it won't pound as hard.
