A good solution
2003 Toyota Tundra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
FIT & FINISH - The mounting holes. I had to bore out several of them to be able bolt the box down securely. Not a big deal, but if you're someone who's tool arsenal consists of a screwdriver set, a crescent wrench, and some sockets, it may be a pain. All in all, if you're already down the path of undertaking a full system install on your own, I'm sure you'll be fine. After the install was complete, I was very pleased with the look of the finished product. I would recommend add your own thicker-gauged wire to the box internals. Also, the unit was not sent with all the appropriate hardware (according to the list of what's included). Kind of a bummer, but no biggie. Sound - I went with 2 - JL Audio 8" 8W1v3-4 pushed by a 250W Alpine amp. Now in my last car I had a ported JL 10" that pounded; big, boomy bass that you felt in your chest. I knew that 2 sealed 8s would be a different animal than I was used to - and it is. The bass is there, but it is tight and punchy. I will not be heard blocks away, which is fine - I built this current system for quality, not ridiculous boomy bass. That said, I was slightly underwhelmed by what was produced. Only slightly. I do not regret the purchase - at all. It sounds excellent, and scratched the itch I had for bass in the truck without sacrificing space. One more thing: consider guards for the woofers. If someone is seated above the woofers, the cushion WILL rub/press on the woofer surround as it flexes.
Pros: Tight, punchy bass without sacrificing passenger space. Impressive finished look.
Cons: Mediocre fitment (easy for most to overcome). If someone is seated above the woofers, the cushion WILL rub/press down upon the woofer surround as it flexes - consider guards.
