Nice. I'm tempted to buy it just so I have a decent sub ready for the next time I buy a car.

Good deal for what you get. Back when I put "systems" in my cars, I was leaving Best Buy with my purchase one day and the door man (guy to make sure you're not stealing) checked my receipt and said, "Alright, let's get you thumpin'!" and sent me on my way.
This was funny to me because I had bought tweeters for my front dash board..."thumping" indeed.

wtf... why would you want this?

I've been into car audio for over 15 years and installed professionally for nearly 4. You get what you pay for in this industry. Polk is a solid brand name and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better subwoofer for 30 bucks. Solid deal.

It reproduces the lower end of the sound spectrum. It's for listening to music.

Ummm...Is it "normal" for folks to question why others would want items that are posted here? Seems like a bit of a waste of time. Sort of a vain attempt at feeling superior?

The only speakers I've used in my cars for the past 20 years have been Polks and I've never been let down. Solid deal... just realize that you just can't slap this in a box- read the directions, make sure the box is the EXACT correct size etc. Biggest mistake I see people make is slapping any ol sub in any ol prefab or home made box without matching the box size to the speaker.

@skrutinizr: how much difference does box size make? why is it so important?

vote-for2vote-against

I don't want to get into a big pissing match here. But manufacturers print those specs as simple ballparks for the average user. It's a size the manufacturer feels is a good mix of sound quality and output, and that will allow the driver to withstand its rated power. In actuality, it's not THAT critical. When it comes to sealed enclosures, bigger is almost always better. A larger sealed box gives greater efficiency and better low-frequency extension, but at the cost of power handling (inverse of efficiency obviously). So while there's some truth to what skrutinizr has stated, it's simply not that critical. Don't stuff this 12" in a tiny wedge-shaped truck box and expect the same results as a 2cuft box.

Before anyone contradicts me, please be prepared to site your data.
