    Amazing product!Works great for the value of the money!

    Upgraded replacementHad blown my first kicker shallow sub and purchased this one as a replacement. This one has the upgraded ventilation to keep the sub cooling unlike the previous one I had from another seller. Still in the break in period but it’s sounding good so far as I’ve got my gains down till I feel enough time has passed to push the jlHD750 into 3/4 gain

  3. Hernan Cortes

    No powerMn

    Impressed with abilityI am impressed with the power handling and the range of bass these subs are capable of in a small box. I’ve always been a Kicker guy but tried JL Audio shallow mount subs.JL Audio subs just can’t compare to these subs. Not to mention I constantly smelled my JL Audio subs when I pushed them. My gains are set correctly with SMD DD1.These Kicker subs just take the beating as long as you keep your signals clean!

  5. David Lowe

    Lot of sound from a shallow mount subFit perfect behind rear seat in a truck box. Sound is great for such a small speaker

  6. Samuel Arias

    You won’t be disappointedThe speaker sounds amazing for a shallow subwoofer.

    Subs reviewI baught these installed them professionally and in a matter of 3 weeks they both just stop working.

  8. J White

    Piece of crapI purchased these speakers in December. Adam installed beginning of January. Both speakers voice coils burned up in less than a month. They were hooked up to a thousand watt soundstream amp. Prestigious claim they can handle 500 RMS continuously, and peek at a thousand Watts total. I took my vehicle to a professional installer shop to have everything professionally installed. The truck sounded great for the first two weeks by week 3 I was getting a slight popping sound coming from my subs. By the end of week three no sound at all. So I returned to the install shop to be informed that all four voice coils on both speakers were fried. What a piece of crap. At $200 a pop you would think they would hold up as advertised. Super super a aggravating. First and last time I will ever put kicker in anything I own.

    Defective from Kicker..Had these 2 subs for 2 weeks. They blew with low wattage going to them. I contacted kicker service tech. They stated they were aware that some of these subs were defective from factory and they had to make adjustments to the way they were built. As of January 1st 2022. It was corrected and any new models of this sub should be good to go. I guess I got some of the old stock. The seller is not at fault here. They sold me a product as described and it arrived on time. Returning the item was easy too. I did buy these subs again – I made sure they were of the new stock. They slam!
