The sub does have great sound for the small size. I installed one sub running 200 watts RMS. It wasn't enough, although I did not give it much time to break in. I added a second and it isn't bad. The mid bass is loud, the lows are there but not as loud. The punch bass sounds good but still sounds small ( I know it's only an 8").
I bought the subs on sale so I am pleased with the purchase.
Disclaimer: I am used to having a lot of bass in my cars, 12" or larger subs. If you are adding a sub for the first time this will be plenty. Just remember if you are putting this in the trunk of a car it won't be as loud. In a truck or open cabin vehicle it will be better. They won't set off car alarms but with 2 they can definitely be heard outside of the vehicle.
I installed these in a 2014 F150 Super-crew.

I installed the JL Audio CP108LG-W3v3 in place of my old Sound Ordinance 8" powered sub. Man I can't believe the difference in performance! This JL Audio micro-sub rocks! Very impressed with the overall package, installed under the rear seat of my 2005 Silverado crew cab. Powered the sub with the Alpine MRV-500 amp. I would recommend this setup to anyone looking for awesome bass with limited interior space!!! Thank you Crutchfield and JL Audio.

Had very limited space under the rear seats of my 2013 F150 Super Crew, so bought this slim sub' as it seemed to be reasonably priced and had excellent reviews. Wow, this thing really booms. I drive it off a Sound Ordnance M-1500 and it gives bass you can feel as well as hear. Really impressed.

Amazing little sub.... Installed in my ford transit behind the rear bench seat and passengers wonder in amazement when the real lows drop. Play anything by disclosure and you'll hear where I am coming from!!
