  • Not a bad sub...if you have a small car or don't need deafening levels

    Nov 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good clean bass, small size, flexible connection options.
    Cons: Fixed length wire on remote, lower output than larger subs, 120 hz highest crossover frequency

    Summary: I recently purchased the Kenwood KSC-SW1 to use in my 2003 Honda Odyssey minivan, along with a Pioneer head unit and Alpine amplifier (I've kept the stock speakers for the moment). The stock Honda system has widely come under criticism in Odyssey groups ... read more

  • Just what I needed

    Jul 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small size, big sound
    Cons: You won't win any contests

    Summary: When I bought my 1987 Porsche 911 cabriolet it was a dream come true. When I turned on the stereo in it, it was a nightmare. Despite having a quality aftermarket component speaker system the sound had crystal clear highs and mids, but NO bass ... read more

  • Kidney stones? No problem!

    Aug 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: space efficient, inexpensive, flexible configuration, wired remote control
    Cons: cannot shatter windows

    Summary: Okay, a subwoofer cannot blast away kidney stones. But I did get your attention, didn't I? The KSC-SW1 is a self-contained subwoofer with an included amplifier. It is rated at 160W, which is relatively weak for subwoofers. Obviously, it is not ... read more

  • Perfect for it's niche

    Apr 14, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small with big sound.
    Cons: Should work without the wired remote.

    Summary: I puchased this sub to replace the factory sub under the seat of my Subaru Outback Sport. It complements an Alpine head unit and Polk component speakers. It fit perfectly under my seat, but of course, a sub was already there. I used the mounting ... read more

    Pros: Clear sound, fits perfectly in smaller cars
    Cons: remote

    Summary: If you're not looking to deafen those within a 20 mile radius, but still manage to add some oomph to what you're listening to, this sub will most likely do the job. I was impressed by the compact size, it really doesn't take up much room at all. ... read more

  • Better than expected. Recommended for over 30

    Rated Show
    Pros: Will make any stereo system sound better. Compact and easy to install.
    Cons: Not suitable for very high sound levels or trunk installation.

    Summary: My 25 yr old son had a 500 watts MTX amp driving a 12 inch Solo Baric subwoofer in his Camero so I really appreciate good bass. I managed to install this mini sub right behind the driver seat in my 2000 Corvette so I had zero loss of trunk space. The sub ... read more

  • OK for the first 3 months.

    Rated Show
    Pros: Small, adds bass, built in amp
    Cons: Blown passive radiators, ugly, sound quality is subpar when working right

    Summary: I had this sub hooked up by a professional. It sounded OK. Nothing to brag about. It definately added more bass. After 3 mohths the passive radiator blew out. Now the sub, sounds like it's farting all the time. I used to have some Kickers subwoofers when ... read more

  • Perfect for a convertible

    May 22, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Small, thin, fits under seat
    Cons: Not many, only that the wired remote needs an "off" button

    Summary: If you are looking for a small sub with a kick, this is exactly what you need. I have a convertible car and didn't want any subs in the trunk, this is perfect for you. Obviously it is not going to provide the same bump as a 10" or 12", but it has enough ... read more

  • I Be Thumpin' !

    Rated Show
    Pros: Price, quality, clean sound
    Cons: easily "stealable"

    Summary: I put one of these in my Honda del Sol. It was just what I needed to fill in the lows without setting off car alarms as I drive down the street. I've never had a sub before and didn't know what I was missing. Now I won't ever go without one. Installation ... read more
