I installed under my driver seat of my 2019 Ram 1500 classic single cab. The unit itself fits perfectly under the seat. When listening to Sirius XM the unit sounds amazing. Not as much with Bluetooth Aux or FM... Still good audio though. I had the unit installed professionally however to get the most you'll have to get the app and make adjustments to get the sound right where you want it and I am not a pro in that field by any means. Bass is perfect, not to crazy hip hop but just enough to justify the price.... Overall great unit just a tad complex if you're not a car audio pro.
Pros: Compact Fits under my Ram classic seat Sounds amazing with XM radio
Cons: Requires in app tweeking that may not be as easy for the average buyer.

Device is great. I wish it had more amps per channel so I could put a more powerful speaker in, but it fits under the seat of my 14 f10 great. The separate lcd display for sub volume is easy to use. The sub really bangs, goes up to volume 18. In my single cab it's too loud for me at that volume. I keep it at sub at 12.
Pros: Great Subwoofer sound and volume.
Cons: Low power watts per channel to speakers. Leaves you wishing for better speakers to perform as well as the sub does

Installed the PWD-X5 in my son's Hyundai Veloster. The ability to control each channel (with crossover levels, equalizer settings, volume, delay) really allowed us to fine tune the performance of his sound system. Oh, and that little subwoofer gets the job done!
Pros: Ability to control each channel.
Cons: Only 25w per channel- a little light but still sufficient.

Not user friendly. Crutchfield did not prepare the wires properly for harness. Total waste. Don't buy or use Crutchfield.

As a 3 in one kit it's pretty great, hook up was simple, and I didn't need anything other than some butt splices and heat shrink. But don't expect earth shaking bass. It's noticeable but far from impressive. Bluetooth control is functional but not painless. I couldn't get the wired controller to work... at all, some troubleshooting tips in the owners manual would be nice. Also the "pro mode" requires a password, which they also don't include in the owners manual is 8888. The 4 ch amp portion is fantastic, perhaps a bit too much as it easily overpowers the sub. Did I mention I can't figure out how to get the wired controller to work and there's no troubleshooting tips to point out what is probably a simple thing I'm overlooking.
Pros: Clean, simple, everything included.
Cons: How does the wired controller work? Can a guy get a trouble shooting tip page?

If your looking for something to make your factory system better but don't need the ground shaking system this should fit the bill. I bought the pwes8 when it came out and this is better. Fit my needs well.
Pros: Self contained, power enough for my needs, Alpine, small package compared to others
Cons: Equalizer is a little tricky
