Question Slim powered sub under back seat...anyone have one?

Looking at adding just a little extra sound to the stereo in my 05' F250. I've thought about getting something like this.....just a small low profile powered sub that would fit under or behind the back seat. Anyone tried one of these? Junk? Decent?

I bought one a couple of years ago. Still works. It’s good for adding some bottom end to the stock system.

My Subaru WRX had a slim factory sub-woofer under the passenger seat and it did add to the quality of the sound.

I had this one mounted under the drivers front seat on a JKU I had and definitely noticed a huge improvement in bass and low end sounds. Could shake the inside pretty good! I am sure however they are all pretty much the same.

Anyone know how difficult it is to integrate one of these things in with the factory Sync radio?

It’s not that difficult. I tapped into my rear speakers with a pac line converter an plugged it into the unit. Then just ran a ground and power wire with a fuse real close to the battery. You need to fish a wire for bass control also. I think I used 4 or 6 gauge power wire.

I figured it was tapped into the speakers. Where did you get your remote turn on power from? Certainly this thing needs remote turn on signal right? I can wire a sub up to a aftermarket stereo like nobody's business, but have never hooked one up to a factory system.

I ran the remote power wire for mine to an upfitter switch.

That little sub looks cool and gets good reviews on Crutchfield.

I would like to add one to my stock unit.

The factory sub on my 2011 fits behind the rear set on my CC. I don't know how or if it would fit older trucks. It does sound decent with the factory radio and differently adds some bump.

Okay, so this thread has me seriously contemplating getting that little sound ordinance sub. I read deeper into the reviews though, and there are some people who were not happy with it at all, but that is common when something has that many people buy it. I trust a solid review on this forum more than I do any review on Crutchfield. Those of you that have it, what do you think? Compare it to the factory Sony system with subwoofer in the F series truck because I have heard one of them.

What I really need to know as well is it says it comes with an 8" speaker input harness. That should alleviate the need for a LOC (line output converter) correct? I don't what to have to take my dash apart again. I would rather put it under the passenger seat in my SuperCab, and catch the rear speaker wires coming forward and splice it in. I have never hooked one up tapping into the factory speaker wires, always used RCA cables.

You need a loc. My pac converter has 4 wires to splice to both rear speakers. Then run rca cables from the converter to the sub.
