Big bass in a compact package

Kenwood's KSC-SW11 powered subwoofer might look small, but it delivers impressive bass. This little powerhouse will fit under a seat in most vehicles, where it'll produce low-frequency response equal to that of a larger subwoofer in your trunk. It offers a great solution for those who want to reinforce the bass in their system without taking up a lot of space.

Kenwood KSC-11 compact powered subwoofer

This tiny powered subwoofer can fit in many tight spaces.

Big woofer, rigid chassis

Kenwood gives you the biggest bang possible by stuffing an 8-1/4" x 5-1/8" woofer into this enclosure. The rigid aluminum enclosure eliminates rattles, while the durable built-in amplifier feeds the speaker 75 watts RMS. Kenwood throws in a wired remote, so you can control the bass from the driver's seat. A wiring harness and mounting brackets are also included.

Size:Price:Performance can't be beat October-10-16
Reviewer: FireAtWill from Los Angeles, CA  
Just to set expectations, if you're looking for an obnoxious sub that shakes all the bolts loose from your car, this ain't it.
For context, I mainly listen to metal/rock and some psychedelic stuff here and there, so I absolutely was not looking for my system to be heavy on bass....just something to fill out my sound a little more and add some extra depth to it.
I previously had a Sound Ordnance B-8PTD in my old Toyota Matrix -  a bigger sub with about double the wattage, and this thing blows it away completely. There's a bigger, wider sound with much more control over the frequency, and the unit itself is about half the size of the SO box. I put this one in a 2016 Mustang and it fits right underneath the passenger seat, barely noticeable unless you scoot the seat all the way forward.
The reason I'm not rating it a 5 is perhaps more related to my installation than the sub itself...I honestly can't tell who's at fault but there's a gremlin in there somewhere. Occasionally it'll catch a frequency in the music and decide to throw all of its power behind it, going completely nuts for about a second. I can control just how crazily it responds to this anomaly by turning the frequency knob all the way down, but IMO that's not something an end user should have to worry about controlling.

Wowed sub July-13-16
Reviewer: Ron D. from Port Richey, FL  
Nice sound, easy to install, everything included to mount and wire. Great sound. For the dollar. .

Not good sound.... April-22-16
Reviewer: JC from Killeen, TX  
I got this thing in hopes that it would fill in the missing bass that my horrible factory speakers dont give. It doesnt really do that. It makes more noise, but not really good bass. Over all I kind of hate this thing. It would be a different story if it produced a clean sound, but it doesnt. Like I said it just makes more noise... Not good bass, not even compared to the factory door speakers.

Small but Effective April-20-16
Reviewer: Glen from Hesperia, CA  
I have had this unit for the past year installed in a 2000 Honda Civic EX Coupe. Sound is amazing. I installed it under the passenger seat and Velcro the control module beside my automatic shifter. Everything is within reach. This subwoofer is connected to my Jensen VX-7200 GPS Receiver and sound is pumped through Kicker Component speakers in front and Kicker 2-way speakers in back. I primarily bought it for just a touch of bass. Not the bone jarring heart attack thumping.

Perfect for small cabins March-30-16
Reviewer: Mike from Highland Mills, NY  
It's important to understand that this unit has limitations. That being said, for my application (92' F-150 standard cab) this was the perfect choice. The unit fits under the bench seat on driver's side almost perfectly. It completely fills in the deeper sound that the other speakers can't produce. The difference between having it off and on is substantial. You can't buy this unit thinking that it will produce sound at the same level of a 12" amplified sub. It won't. There is no way that a unit of this size can achieve those low hip hop notes that blow doors off hinges. You also can't crank it up all the way and expect it to not distort at full volume. This unit is designed for tight spaces and small cabins, specifically single cab trucks and very small cars. You may have a chance placing it under the driver's seat of an SUV or larger truck, but don't waste your time if you plan to place it in the back or trunk. When blended with the music, it performs flawlessly and is impressive for its size. The construction is solid and installation is very easy. RCA jacks ARE required to connect this unit directly to an after market radio.
