Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
I like everything about the sub. I have no complaints about the sub because it was not expensive. As my roommate has what i'm sure is a twice as expensive JL with a twice as powerful amp its hard not to compare the kicker to it. of course it doesn't hit as low a note as often but honestly you don't need to rattle your brain every second you listen to it. The kicker has plenty of booming base for all songs of all genres, including dub step to rock. My amp came with a dial that wires up to the drivers seat so it is easy to change the level of power going to the sub at any time, but for most songs it is not needed as the rock songs don't send out a lot of 30 hz tones so it doesn't rattle the car itself. But rather you get a nice lower end that would be nonexistent without it. And of course on rap and genres more aimed at car rattling base it has just the right amount for me and i don't need anything more than this. I do wonder, however, if the box that is made for the sub is a little small for the sub. From what I researched, and i can't remember the exact numbers now, you needed much more cubic space inside the box for ported set ups and i'm not convinced their is adequate space inside the box made by kicker specifically for this sub. not saying that it is a set back as it still produces plenty of boom and the skinny, well not quite skinny, box fits well in the back of my open wagon and is angled to sit into the back of the seats.
Pros: Plenty of boom, can make your hair vibrate. sleeker box so it isn't a massive box that takes up your entire boot space
Cons: No cons, i just wonder if the box has enough volume inside that gets all of the possible boom out of the sub. but this does not diminish it from having enough boom.
