A little back story...I recently bought a jeep, without the Alpine sound system. I was bummed I wasn't able to find the jeep with the sound system. I didn't want to add any big subwoofer box in my jeep to get the amazing bass sound. However, a friend of mine mentioned this compact amp/subwoofer combo that seemed to be my solution. I made the decision to buy it and I can say it was money well spent. Besides this I also upgraded my factory speakers to Kicker as well, which alone sucked. Combined with this sub/amp combo, I couldn't ask for a better setup. 100% satisfied. Easy install too. I consider myself average when it comes to stereo installs/well above-average on car knowledge, so keep that in mind if you plan on doing the work yourself.

Great powered sub for the average joe
Posted by: AndrewDld from: Olympia, WA on
I am just an average Joe looking to add a little base to my little convertible 2000 Chevy Tracker.
Being a convertible, I didn't want to upgrade the main stereo head unit due to the risk of theft.
What I wanted was to improve the sound quality but not spend a bunch of money, time, etc.
I upgraded the four 6.5" speakers in the doors to 3 way speakers -the mid and highs were great, but the base left a lot to be desired.
Turning up the volume (convertible down driving down the road) with just the door speakers caused a fair amount of rattles and distortion when adding in more base from the head unit.
What I wanted was to use the speakers in the doors for mid's and highs, and something separate for the base. But I also needed something that didn't take up any valuable space in the back of the truck or was easily seen for potential theft.
Turns out this little unit fits under the front seat, has PLENTY of base for the average Joe, was easy to install and easy to tune.
I like the remote base adjustment. When I am with the significant other, I can turn down the base. When I am running down the freeway with the top down, I can crank up the stereo now and the sound is now clear and full through out the spectrum.
Its not the cheapest, but everything is pretty well included for the install. I'd call that value.
I opted to use the remote 12 Volt signal to turn the unit on (I pulled the head unit and just connected into the wires there, including the speaker wires).
Overall: if you just want to upgrade your current OEM system a bit, not invest a bunch of time or money in a sound system upgrade.. this unit might just be the ticket.
Hindsight is 20/20 - I would do it again in a heart beat. I was amazed just how much base this little guy kicks out.. I was missing a lot.

My wife is a musician and was not satisfied with the sound from the speakers in her new vehicle. A local custom shop said they could "hook me up" starting at $3,500.00! ....I went to Best buy, and this little box more than meets her needs. She even has to turn the bass down now, which she never does. We are almost shaking the street, although that is not our style! A good buy for those of us who can't spend thousands on a system.

Great sound and bass for tight spaces
Posted by: cc2247 from: Los Angeles, CA on
Its pretty much what I expected - but it also exceeded my expectations. I cannot expect a portable unit so small to kick out a lot of bass but I was pleasantly surprised! This small unit works as advertised and more! Very pleased with unit although its a little pricey.

I love this thing. had it installed under my passenger seat and you would never know. i asked for something just to boost the low end and not rattle my car to pieces and this was perfect! A Great addition with amazing sound quality.

Nice compact size, gives good sound for size.
Posted by: Panchoaz from: Mesa, AZ on
I had this subwoofer installed in my 2010 Nissan Frontier crew-cab. There isn't a lot of free space for a subwoofer in the truck, unless you want to give up passenger/comfort space. The rear seat on my Frontier is a 70/30 split seat upright folding configuration, and has 2 removable utility trays mounted to floorboards, with maybe 6-8 inches of height from floor board to bottom of seat. I found that this subwoofer fit nicely underneath the 30 split of the rear seat with maybe 1 3/4 - 2" of it sticking out from the bottom seat where the passenger would put their feet, with minimal loss of foot space. The sound it produces is above average for the inside of the truck, but it wont rattle the car next to you. I feel its pricey for the sound it produces, but the compact size and not losing comfort/passenger space makes it so worth it.

Kicker Kicks it Up
Posted by: ChevySonic2012Hatch from: Destin, FL on
Five months ago I had the sense to buy a 2012 Chevy Sonic (Hatchback)... For those of you not familiar with this car, its small. It holds great similarity to the Honda Fit, or Chevy Aveo. While the car is great the sound system left me wanting a little more. The Kicker Hideaway is crazy small and fits in the back of my car like it wasn't there... I'm not joking this thing is tiny... so much so that I really really expected little change in the quality of the audio. Best-buy installed it in little under an hour. The install guy turned the car on and we sat inside listening to music with the bass turned off... he told me to crank it up and holy carp I couldn't believe the difference... it blew me away at how it changed the sound. This product is amazing.. no its not the best sub on the market but it is the smallest and not bad price wise. Don't get me wrong the bass sounds amazing I'm just saying I'm not setting off car alarms or cracking windows with it. I drive over a hundred miles a day for work.... and I couldn't ask for more now.

Great little sub for a stock system
Posted by: j1999t from: Loveland, CO on
I got this sub for a 2013 accord that has absolutely no bass to it, even thought the system advertised "360 watts and a sub" the sub was an 8 inch speaker that has no power. I had this nice Kicker installed and tuned in, and it really helps. No its not a 10" or 12" sub in a ported box with a 1000w amp pushing it. But for space reasons and not needing earth-shattering bass, this Kicker does nicely.
