Stock look at a hefty premium
2002 Chevrolet Tahoe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This powered MTX Thunderform sub sounds great and is without a doubt a significant sonic upgrade from the stock sub. But better bass can be achieved for the same or less cost if you're willing to give up some cargo space for a non-stock fit. I actually use my Tahoe for moving large cargo and didn't want to deal with the pitfalls of standard enclosures and didn't want to lose the ability to lay my rear seats flat by installing amps under the rear seats. Stock fit/placement was my highest priority in significantly improving my sound system, which I achieved with this powered enclosure, but it came at a premium cost. For me, it was absolutely worth the expense! And I don't want to downplay the sound/performance...this sub sounds great! Final note: If you want the best performance possible with stock sub placement, get the enclosure with upgraded sub and external amp. It'll cost more $$, but it'll sound even better!
Pros: Great performance/sound for a stock fit replacement. Worth the expense if stock placement is your priority.
Cons: Expensive! Not the best performance/sound for the money, but please read my entire review for my caveats.
