    Very Good Combination

    This is a really good budget / entry level combination to get a solid bass note in your car. The box is built well, and designed specifically for the sub. The amp is more than adequate to power it. Like any speaker, it does take some time to get broken in so that the response is cleaner. Your mirrors will shake, but the bass isn't going to rattle your eyes or make your vision blurry (to be expected with a single 12" and 250W amp). It won't be the crispest experience either. The sub honestly gets pretty muddy in the lower frequencies. It sounds like it really struggles < 30Hz or so. Still, for the price package I was able to get it for and 90% of the music I listen to (Rock, Top 40, EDM), it's a very good purchase. I recommend it to anyone not looking to obliterate their ear drums or eliminate all their trunk space. Doesn't get that 5th star from me because of the struggles on the far low end.

    I stumbled across this package in an email for $149. For that price, it was well worth it. It’s not an ideal sub/amp pairing. The sub being SVC 4ohm, only uses half the amp’s rms. So you’re only getting 125 watts to the speaker. Two of these speakers would have been a better set up to take full advantage of the amp. It is a nice addition to an otherwise stock audio system though. I ended up swapping the SVC 4ohm with a DVC 4ohm compC 12”, wiring it for 2ohm to get the full 250 watts. I’m not sure I’d pay full price for this setup, but if you can get it on sale, $149 is a great buy.

    This will be used in a friends car with a stock stereo. I been using aftermarket car audio for over 25 years & Im amazed at the quality for the price that you can now buy in brands like kicker or Rockford. For the record my typical system installs are 2000k watt rms & up so this is not for my ear's and will not be loud or boomy for some but its a great starter that allows you to keep your trunk.

    I bought this speaker/amp combo on a budget for my boat. Its hidden in a compartment out of the elements. It sounds great! I have 6 kicker ds series 5.25 inch and the sub and amp with Sony head unit. The amp bridged as shown in manual is to much power for the speaker, turned down the gain. I highly recommend this speaker/amp combo!!! Be boating in style this year :)

    So this subwoofer is made to be very efficient. The small amp that came with it powers it perfectly. The enclosure is very well made and at $129 it was a steal. It does not have as much excursion as other woofers so it doesn’t move as much air. Your mirrors will vibrate a little but it won’t kick you in the chest. Great to ad to a stock F350 stereo.

    Sub is perfect. It will not rattle your car apart but fills in the lows perfect. I've had many different subs in my cars over the years but I'm now sold on kicker. Again don't expect to hear this sub from blocks away. It is the perfect amount of bass for anyone looking for great sound with some kick.

    Bought it and was surprised on how small the amp was (haven't bought an amp in almost ten years) and was skeptical of the power and the sound it would produce. I love both. Perfect compliment to my current factory system putting out some serious bass.

    Was sketch about buying this product after reading reviews. My other vehicles have custom systems but this simple box and amp does the job. I wanted to add some bass but I got BOOM with some tuning. Great deal if you catch it on sale. Geek squad tech did an ok job installing.

    This speaker & amp are the PERFECT pair and I got it on sale, almost 50% off so it was a steal. It sounds amazing and handles lows & highs very well. This speaks volumes (pun intended) because I’m a big guy in audio sounding great. You won’t regret this purchase!

    Got this sub to install in my factory radio and let me tell you. This thing hits hard and has great lows. Great Deal for a Kicker Sub and Amp that works well together.

    For anyone that likes premium sound this is a must have, way better than the stock audio system which gives any car a better experience anytime you get in.

    12" sub in an enclosure and an amp from kicker, for an incredible price. A good deal and value. Bass is deep and amp puts out sufficient watts.
