2 Leaky Stealthboxes
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
While the concept of the Stealthbox is genius, the finished product wasn't that overall impressive. The design of the box is good, it is very leaky. These "sealed" boxes are not very well sealed. The design to mount them down are three threaded holes (two on side and one on bottom). No matter what you do (silicone, loctite, etc.) will not prevent air from escaping from here. It severly impacts the performance of the subwoofer, causing it to "pop" at a low volume". It also is a side firing subwoofer, so the soundwaves do not sound as good as a regular box could (sound fires between two back side windows versus the front and back window you get with a regular box). It caused my gas door to rattle so bad you could hear it inside the car. That being said...the gas door is an easy fix. The air leaks are not. I ranked it with 2 stars because of Crutchfield's outstanding customer service. They quickly replaced the first one and offered to replace the second one, but I decided to return it for a full refund. Thanks Crutchfield, I will continue to be a loyal customer.
