Waste of money
2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Ease of Use
I purchased this item from another seller (Not Crutchfield). I've always built my own enclosures and purchased component subs- Several from Crutchfield. I must say I was totally surprised by the way this thing sounded. It was amazing upon installation and trial/testing.... Until it sounded like a voicecoil rattling/loose and had that very distinct burnt smell. This was at Maybe a total of 3 hours of play when I had just left work and was driving home. Windows were up and volume was not up high. Maybe1/4-1/3. I called the seller and their customer service told me I was basically out of luck since it was obviously blown (her words, not mine). After haggling, I was informed that I could ship it back to them "at a reduced rate" (about $20) and they would test it and replace if found defective. I decided not to keep throwing money at it and just ate the loss. I'm quite sure Crutchfield would have handled my call much differently. Even if the result were the same, I'm sure their rep would be much more courteous to a customer. Lesson learned. I'll stick to what I know from now on.
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install and set up. Sounded great at first.
Cons: Lasted less than 4 hours. Replacement woofer from Bazooka is $75 plus any shipping.
