Bring bass to the boondocks
The Wet Sounds Stealth AS-8 powered sub gives you a bunch of bass power in a rugged housing that's tough enough for the great outdoors. This powered sub features a high-efficiency Class D amp that delivers 350 watts to its 8" speaker, so it's ready to bring powerful bass to your boat, ATV, or side-by-side.
Computer matched for optimum performance
The marine-rated 8" sub is computer-matched to the enclosure, so you'll get plenty of low-end performance from this compact package. It comes with a remote level control, so you can tune it to suit your musical tastes. You can choose between automatic or manual turn-on.
Built to take it
You won't have to worry about overtaxing it either, thanks to performance-oriented thermal and over/under voltage protection. The package includes a durable aluminum grille, so there will be no issues with anything in the boat sliding over and damaging your sub.
The finishing touch
If you already have a Stealth soundbar, this sub makes the perfect finishing touch to an awesome all-weather stereo system.
Note: This Wet Sounds sub only has a mini-jack input. If you want to connect it to a marine receiver that has a pair of RCA sub outs, you'll need a Hosa Stereo Mini Breakout Adapter to convert the male mini-jack into male RCAs.

Wet Sounds STEALTH AS-8 reviews
Purchased this sub for a 2011 four Winns h180. Wow! I couldn't be happier with the construction and build quality of this unit. Bass is very loud and crisp for an 8" sub. It's not going to sound like 2 12's, but it adds more than enough low end for general music listening and adds a good amount of punch to hip hop and edm. Overall very satisfied and installation was a piece of cake.
Pros: Construction Sound quality Mounting hardware

Unfortunately I didn't get to use this item as it was to big to fit into my under seat storage compartment.

Hard to believe this is only an 8" sub. The enclosure is solid, looks nice, and is well made. It has a subtle look, which is great for keeping it from being noticed by the wrong people. I'm using it in my Jeep TJ, which is a convertible, and a difficult environment to recreate solid bass in. Being waterproof is great, I don't have to worry about it being rained on, and it's small enough to mount in the limited free space in my Jeep. The sound is incredible for an 8" sub. It's obvious Wet Sounds is using a high end driver and a quality amp to reproduce solid bass from such a small package. It's a sealed enclosure, and you can tell with how tight and accurate the bass sounds, much better sound than a band pass or ported enclosure. It's able to produce plenty of volume to overcome the road, tire, and wind noise of my topless Jeep at highway speeds. Sounding great while doing this is no small accomplishment. As a note, this is an 8" sub, and a sealed enclosure. If you're looking for hard hitting dance or rap bass, this sub probably isn't for you, but then no 8" would be. It sounds great with rock, alternative, jazz, country, etc.
Pros: Small, waterproof, well made, nice looking. Great sounds from a small package.

Placement Options: The physics of sound tell us that any subwoofer increases its output when allowed to "load" into a wall, corner, or some other structure. Since every vehicle & application is different, we suggest you experiment & move the subwoofer around to find the optimal position.
Break-In Period: It is recommends that the AS-8 be played a moderate volume levels using normal music material for 6-8 hours before high-output demands are placed on the powered sub. Proper break-in will result in better sound and longer life of the product.
