Great Bass From Small Package April-19-14
Reviewer: ljk from Denver, CO  
I recently purchased this JL setup because I wasn't satisfied with my shallow 10" Pioneer TS-SW2501S2 mounted in the sealed downfiring enclosure that Pioneer makes for this sub. The shallow Pioneer just couldn't reproduce the lower frequencies without some distortion. This 8" JL does much better than the 10" Pioneer. You'd probably get even better low-end with a real 10" or 12" sub with proper enclosure, but if you are low on space, or just want a simple pre-loaded setup, this thing would be hard to beat. I'm throwing 200 watts RMS at it from a Fosgate P300x1 and it sounds awesome. It will fit under the rear seat of a 2014 Tundra Double Cab, but you need to position it further up below the seat because the rear of the seat bottom has a hard support that will dent the grill when you put down the seat. I think it would be fine under the seat if you remove the grill, but I've left mine on and just position the enclosure so that the seat will go down. The enclosure is not sticking out at all from under the seat either. I'm seriously tempted to upgrade my wiring to 4 guage and throw a second one of these in my rig.  

My only suggestion for improvement would be a 2 ohm version or dual voice coil version for more wiring and amp options. Also, a little on the expensive side. If this setup was priced at $200, I would give it 5 stars for value.

I wanted to add a sound system to my 2000 4runner that I rarely drive.  I decided to pick the JL 8 in sub after reading all the positive reviews on it.  I wanted something that did not take up too much space.  After getting my old Fosgate amp hooked up to it, this sub sounded awesome.  I was amazed how such a tiny sub could sound this good.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a small sub that won't take up barely any space.


 
This sub is AMAZING!!! :D March-03-14
Reviewer: Psychedelica from Victoria, BC, Canada  
5 stars all around!!! I was looking for something that I could tuck under the back seat of my 1997 Mitsubishi Delica van and that would provide the low end needed for a lot electronic music - deep house, bass music, grime, drum and bass, you name it. And man, does this thing deliver!! It hides perfectly in the back yet can fill the whole van with clean, powerful bass that you can feel inside your chest. How JL managed to get an 8" sub to do this I still don't know! I'm powering my whole system with the JL HD 700/5 amp which sends 180 RMS to the sub and 75W to the 4 other speakers and the system is more than loud enough while maintaining perfect clarity. My front components are the Kenwood XR-1800P which feature a 7" oversized speaker for mid bass and excellent tweeters while in the back I have a pair of JVC 6x9's. The amp runs all of this and hides nicely under the front passenger seat carpet. All in all this combo seems to have built the perfect setup for a great and balanced sound system that can really pound when needed too ( YAAA!! :D ) but also maintain great audio fidelity. If you're debating on this, JUST GET IT!!  Lastly, I also picked up the JL Audio HD-RLC remote bass control and had it run to right below my deck for easy bass adjustment. The adjuster really should come with it though but still worth the extra money as you can then really dial in the low end and turn in down to talk to people in the back without having to go into your menus, etc. Have FUN!!

Reviewer: Deerhunter from Lake Placid, NY  
i changed my vehicle from a Toyota 4 Runner to a 2011 Chevy Silverado Extended Cab. In the 4 Runner I had a MTX- 3 12's box which was great. Obviously did not have the room in the truck. The JL fits on its own underneath the back bench seat and produces fantastic sound and bass. As always the Crutchfield team was highly professional, informative, and courteous. I just wish they had outlets through the country for installation.


 
Be careful on what you power this sub with January-24-14
Reviewer: JC from Worcester MA  
First let me say this subwoofer sounds fantastic when run with the right amplifier. It produces some astonishingly accurate (for a ported) and low notes with authority. Be very care though on what you choose to power it with. I originally powered this with an old Alpine MRP M-200 mono amplifier with 150 watts RMS and it sounded amazing on that amplifier. I put that amplifier on my wife's sealed 10" JL Audio BassWedge for her, which also sounds amazing (accurate and tight). I had trouble finding a mono amplifier that was 200 watts RMS and listened to some bad advice where I was told that it's ok to overpower a subwoofer a little bit.  

Since the JL Audio 8W3V3-4 woofer is rated between 75-250 watts RMS I bought a Pioneer GM D8601 Mono amplifier with 300 watts RMS because it looked good and was on sale and hey "its ok to overpower it a little". When I installed this amplifier I had nothing but trouble trying to tune it to my system. I followed the proper procedures for setting the gain too. The bass was either there or it was too much. It was very difficult to get a happy medium. The bass was also sloppy/ muddy and the lows were over powering and the upper bass missing. I kept thinking I did something wrong and the placement of the sub was bad. Then I found a 20 year old class AB 2 channel Alpine 3548 in my closet, which when bridged was rated 160 watts RMS into 4 ohms. Well let me tell you when I installed this amplifier in place of the Pioneer I was astonished at the differen
