Pros:Great Subwoofers for people entering the Car Audio World!

Cons:Veterans may want more in their Subwoofers. Go for the XS-L1035.

The Bottom Line: If you want to hear moderate bass, that sounds good (But not that loud) and do not want to draw attention to your car: GO FOR IT!!!


The Sony Xplod XS-L1030 Subwoofers are probably the best that sony has made in their car stereo line as of 2000. Now (for 2001) they have improved their line with the XS-L1035, and it is a significant improvement. As you may read in other Opinions, the Sony Xplod XS-L1030 is not the best buy if you are into Mega-Bass. If you are looking for a reliable bass edition to your current factory installed radio, you may want to look into the XS-L1030.

[For Reference:
XS-L1030 = The Subwoofer being Reviewed, 2000 Model
XS-L1035 = The 2001 Model]

The Sony Xplod (Pronounced Explode) line of Car audio components started in 1997-1998. Sony promised that you could "Disturb the peace" with their new line, but it was hardly that (As far as the XS-L1030 and the XS-L1230 go). Their CD Receivers and Speakers Work great and they do follow Sony's Slogan (If properly installed) and sound Great. Currently, I have a Sony CDX-4000x CD Receiver, two 5 1/4 3way Xplod Speakers, two 6 1/2 3way Xplod Speakers, and an XS-752eqx Amplifier. I have two of the XS-L1035 Subwoofers, but the Q-Logic Box is still on order. (All those products and more will soon be reviewed on Epinions.com).

Anyway, The XS-L1030 has these Specs:

* 400 watts Maximum input (Really should be about 300-350 watts)
* 32-120 watt RMS Power Range
* 25-3000 Frequency Range
* Cructhfield Price: $79.99
* eBay Price: $49.00

There was an Elevated Standard model of the XS-L1030 named as XS-L1050, which was not much of an improvement over the Regular model.

Bottom Line:
If you want Mega-Bass, like a full body massage, look elsewhere for a Subwoofer. (Like the XS-L1035) If you would like to add moderate bass, impressive sound without having everyone stare at your car as you cruise down main street, These are your Subwoofers!
