I chose this product for a couple of reasons. My current amplifier only puts out 190 watts to a bridged channel (WAS powering 2x 8" subs which i blew out), so i chose run 1 of these because it better matched up with my amp's power rating. Though many people think that with subs "you get what you pay for".... with this product and some properly chosen accessories (read high quality power/speaker wire, high quality ported enclosure with a volume between 1 and 2 cubic feet, and an amp that puts out somewhere near 160 watts rms... this sub will blow your mind. Not because its the loudest or best sub you've ever heard, but because you only had to spend $xx for an excellent addition to your sound system. This sub is the PERFECT choice for anyone with a stiff budget or looking for a simple upgrade to their system. My ported box plus this sub hits plenty hard and I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase. By the way, I recommend using a 2-channel amp bridged to 1-channel if you plan on powering a single sub like this. Mono block amps run better at a lower impedance than this sub (typically 2 ohm vs. this sub's 4 ohm impedance), and there is no way to wire a single voice coil sub like this down to 2-ohm. Plus you are MUCH more likely to find a 2-channel amp that puts out this low of a power requirement. Don't let it fool you, you will get a lot out of this kind of budget setup.
