I have this subwoofer installed in my 2003 Chevy S10 extended cab pick-up. I am powering it with a Pyramid Artic Series 1000 watt amp bridging channels 3 and 4 together. I am powering a pair of 6.5 inch component speakers on channels 1 and 2. I am also utilizing a 1.6 farad capacitor. While this is not an expensive set-up, it rocks. Very clear, and very loud. If you are looking for an excellent entry-level subwoofer, do not count this one out. I have heard other more expensive enclosed subwoofers, and this out-performed some of them. It provides plenty of bang for the buck.
