You can pack a lot of stuff into the back of your pickup, but it can be a challenge to load your truck up with pulse-quickening bass. Sony's XS-LB10S loaded enclosure crams a jammin' shallow-mount 10" subwoofer into a sturdy box which takes up just 7-1/2 inches of depth — perfect for those tight spots in trucks or compact cars. Add an amp and wiring for deep notes that hit hard right where you want them.

Sony's five-sided XS-L10S Slim Series 10" subwoofer may be slender, but it doesn't wimp out on the bass. Its ultra-rigid polypropylene cone gets extra stiffness from its pentagonal design, and cone movement stays true with the tough rubber surround in control. Ply this skinny stomper with 330 watts of RMS power and feel the bass explosion.

Sony built this rugged sealed box to optimize the performance of this unique sub. Medium-density fiberboard construction won't go to pieces down the road, and the tough black vinyl covering resists wear and tear. Gold-plated speaker terminals ensure a clean signal path, so you get full performance from this enclosure.

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.
