Needs a Better Installation Method
Great concept, but the installation method could be improved. Sub itself is great. I have it paired with a JL Audio Slash v2 Series 250/1v2 amp and it provides just what I was looking for. The problem is the way you mount the sub via the wheel well. The bolt provided was too short to pierce the wheel well and thread into the insert that's in the enclosure. After purchasing/trying a longer bolt, the threaded insert separated from the enclosure...yes, the second bolt was the correct type, just a 1/2 inch longer. So, I had to run back to the hardware store and purchase washers and nuts to fasten from the inside of the enclosure. The wheel well mount is the only point my enclosure attaches to the vehicle. My 99 4Runner has the longer storage box, so it doesn't get any support from a smaller square hole like the one pictured in the ad. This also causes the back end of the storage box to show even with the enclosure installed. And I had to shim the enclosure to get it to sit flush against the wall. Bottom line, Crutchfield did their part (as always), the performance of the sub/amp are great, but the mounting concept needs to be improved.
