Excellent full bodied low end
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
I was looking for a sub woofer to really bring out the bass guitar in rock music and found it with this unit from Alpine. It also adds some very nice bump for hip hop, electronica or what ever else I send it's way. The enclosure is fairly compact, but definitely will not fit under the seat of my Subaru Outback so I sacrificed the space behind the driver seat on the floor board and it fits like it was built for it! What really sold me on this unit was the frequency response of 400 HZ. Many of the enclosures I was looking at were rated at 200 or less. The grill over the speaker was also very important due to where I was installing it. This sub woofer has completely brought my system to life by allowing me use the high pass filters on my 5 channel amp and send all of the bottom end to the sub, where it belongs, freeing the door speakers up to take care of the mids and high end.
Pros: Great frequency response!!!! Protective grill over speaker. Fairly compact size.
Cons: This enclosure has no mounting gear with it, at least not in the "open box" unit I bought.
