Open box defective unit?

Crutchfield customer from Wexford, PA on 7/12/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed the Rockford Fosgate Punch PS-8 in a convertible Nissan 370Z behind the driver seat. The sound of powered subwoofer is okay but not enough "punch". I owned a 350Z with a factory installed Bose subwoofer behind the driver that could be felt the seat. The Crutchfield technician was very helpful with installation questions I had. I have tried different 12V sources, but the PS-8 drains the battery in a few days. It appears the Auto Turn-On switch,which has three options, does not work as intended to power down the unit when not in use. Also do not notice much difference when adjusting the Cross Over Frequency or the Punch EQ pots. I have reached out to Rockford Fosgate for technical support, but they do not answer their 1-800 number or respond to questions submitted on their web page. After all the effort it took to install the unit, I am reluctant to return and install another unit, so I installed a manual switch to turn the PS-8 on and off. I purchased an open box special. Hope that Crutchfield did not re-sell a unit that was returned as defective.

Pros: Decent sound

Cons: Switches do not seem to work as intended No technical support from Rockford Fosgate

I drive a topless Jeep Wrangler and this thing pumps out enough belly shaking bass that I feel every beat while doing 80 on the freeway. Its size fits perfectly under the driver's seat. I could not ask for a better sub at this price point.

I ordered this for my son's car and selected it for the all-in-one features and the Rockford Fosgate brand. A buddy and I installed this unit in 45 minutes start to finish and it was very easy. As soon as my son started the car and turned up the first song, the look on his face was worth everything! Great product, easy to install and incredible sound.

Pros: Easy to install, all-in-one, price, shipping speed, and so on...

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've tried two competitor models and would highly recommend the PS-8. The sound quality, volume and level of control is fantastic. I have it installed under the drivers seat of my Tundra crew max and it more than fills the cab when turned up about a 3rd. That said, this is my second unit. I had one for about 3 years and it stopped working. I tried a couple different models to see if I wanted something different this time around and after a couple attempts I bought the PS-8 with the square trade warranty and couldn't be happier.

Awesome little sub! Added this to our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. With an upgraded head unit and speakers this sub adds the missing low frequencies the normal Jeep speakers can't obtain! Mounted this to our back gate so it's firing forward! Instal was easy! Would recommend!

The bass is perfect for a 41 yr old kid that will get a migraine from a 10 or 12. It fills the truck nicely. it really rounded out my system. I installed a kenwood deck, Rockford fosgate 6 3/4 and some kickers i put in awhile ago. I would have went 5 stars but im still learning a little about how it starts up. i used the remote wire from the deck as a signal to turn it on but i feel like it takes up to 2-3 minutes once in awhile. I checked the voltage and it does see 11v on the remote wire when the deck turns on. I mounted it half on the hump in the middle of the truck and used a 2x4 to level it. Id recommend screwing or bolting it to the floor. Sounds better.

Best sounding powered sub-woofer

Dennis W from Bucyrus, OH on 11/26/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this on the advice of the online Crutchfield tech guy. After 2 trials of another brand of subwoofer, he told me about this one. He always liked Rockford products and he said I would not be disappointed. I love the hit on the bass that I get from this sub. The rear window of my 2016 Ford F150 shakes everytime this sub booms!! I have to adjust the remote bass control down on dance music, hip-hop and newer disco. I am 61 years old and I love the sound from this subwoofer. The bass is just amazing and I am glad I listened to the tech guy at Crutchfield!!

Pros: Slick package and heavy made. All connections at one end. Adds bass to factory unit where it was lacking poorly.

Cons: Not One!

Good Product. Three points of advice.

Paul from Manteca, CA on 8/5/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have three points of advice regarding this product. NUMBER ONE - No need for this product if you are taking the kids all over town in your "Mom Van" Stick with you stock factory stereo. NUMBER TWO - If you like straight on, butt kicking, 3 chords, balls to the wall rock and roll, punk rock, power pop, modern day country music that really kicks, even things like hard core southern gospel power harmony, this sub will give you what you are looking for. Good thump without disturbing other drivers while at a stop light. Warning. Do not expect this sub to boom because it won't. NUMBER THREE - If you are a bass head forget it. Not for you. No further explanation needed.

Pros: See Point Number Two

Cons: See Point Number Three

I put this in my 2005 GMC Sierra 2500hd which doesn't have many options for sub and amp combos for the space in the truck. So I was skeptical of a sub this size an so compact actually putting out good hard hitting bass... boy was I surprised!! This little sucker kicks!! Don't get me wrong it won't rattle your mirrors off but it does rattle them when turned up. I have the factory Bose speakers and this is the perfect compliment to the system. Can crank it up and everything's nice clean and clear and sounds perfect just casually listening.

Pros: Size, sound

Cons: None

It's a nice little sub . I bought two. Please check the factory terminations! They have got to be the worst I've ever seen from a supposedly quality company. These terms: will Come right off with no effort . Oh, this includes the fuse holder terms. Hate to see what it looks like inside. But it does make a very small cab pickup thump a bit with two of them. Good space saving design.

Good starter bass

Crutchfield customer from Grapevine, TX on 1/14/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was installed in an F150 where the optional bass unit would have gone, under the rear seat, extended cab. Hookup was very simple only option that may confuse folks is how to trigger the bass to power on but reading up will help. Originally didn't need to really secure the unit but later put two screws through the sheet metal on floor to hold it down solid. Just securing it solid turned it into a very good bass engine for what it is. Definiteley could feel the bass throughout cab and seats now. Tweak settings a lot my son likes his bass blurry while I like it sharp so tweaking will help a lot.

Best upgrade

Jaymie from Bronx, NY on 9/29/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is the best upgrade I've done to my car. I didn't want to change my head unit or fill my cargo area with speakers, so this was the best alternative. If you know how to use a multi-meter &/or read a wiring diagram, then this is an easy install. Took me an hour & a half to install & that wired remote is a great addition. Great sound. Hidden under the drivers seat, you never know it's there until you crank up the bass. I'm already thinking aboit buying another one for the passenger seat.

Pros: Does not affect cargo space, compact to be hidden in a quarter panel or under a seat. Easy install if you understand auto electronics.

Cons: Great power for the size, but more power would increase the size.

I love loud music, this Box, was fit under the back seat of My Ram 2500 2014 without any problem, if I by myself I crank it loud, with the control for the Sub i can go up or down on Power, and sounds pretty sick, Is the same Brand what I have on my Nissan Frontier Pro 4x from Factory Rockford Fosgate, I loved!!

Pros: Plenty sound for my Truck

Cons: It was install on a shoppe, If I turned off, the stereo, the sub still on, and is loud noise, so I have to turned off the Sub woofer with the remote control, Other on that, works perfect so far.

After researching several powered subwoofers I settled on this one. The reviews were helpful and accurate. The installation was straightforward and the sub is surprisingly powerful especially for its size. I am completely happy with the product and very pleased with the support I received from Crutchfield. I would recommend this sub for anyone wanting to improve the low end on their system without spending tons of money. I think this sounds as good if not better than the factory option.

Pros: easy installation, compact size, surprisingly powerful

I bought this amplified sub to round out the bass to my factory stereo upgrades. I was a little skeptical that this little sub could provide the bass that i was looking for but man was I wrong. This amp won't give you bog booming bass but if you have a factory stereo with a lack of low end bass this sub is the one for you.

Fairly easy to set up, sounds good. Nice to have a little more "boomp" with the music. Tight fit under passenger seat though, and bass seems off a bit when music is from radio. CD playback is fine.

Pros: Easy set up, good sound

Cons: Tight fit under seat, sticks out of front a bit. Thump is a bit off when using radio.

A musical, compact, reliable sub

Rick from Rising Sun, MD on 6/16/2016

2005 Toyota Prius

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this RF sub after my 3rd Infinity Basslink crapped out and I was forced to spend more money. This was money well spent. Although this sub isn't as loud as the Basslink, it fills in the bottom end in my Prius very nicely, and actually does pack a very respectable punch given its small size (8" driver and low profile). As others have said, if you are interested in impressing people in other cars, this is not the sub for you. But if care about quality and musicality, then I suggest you give this one a try. (You might check the RF website to see if they sell a larger Punch sub as well.) I think the additional cost over the Basslink is reflected in the sound and build quality, although I've only had it for ~ 2 months.

Pros: Sound quality, construction, small form factor

Cons: None that I know of

For only 8" and compact it sure does deliver the bass. I have an Ext. cab Silverado, if this was in a smaller vehicle it would sure enough hit.

Pros: Entire enclosure made of metal. Compact and excellent if you're just wanting to make music sound better by adding bass.

Cons: Virtually no installation instructions other than mounting powered sub.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My wife has a Traverse without the BOSE system and I found it lacking the bass I wanted. I replaced the head unit with a pioneer navigation unit, and RF speakers all the way around. Still missing the bottom end I wanted. Added the PS-8 to round out the system and was not disappointed. In fact it now has better bass response than my friends wife's Traverse with the BOSE system. I can think of no higher praise than eclipsing a $1900.00 factory option with components totaling less than half that. Definitely won't be heard coming down the street like my mustang, but for a family vehicle just missing the low notes this thing is awesome. Very happy...

Pros: Size, ease of installation, sound quality.

Cons: Thought this would be a half day project in the garage away from the kids, done in two hours.... Oh well, I guess it depends on what you call a con.

Mounted under the passenger seat this little sub surprisedan me. It has great sound but does distort a little at high volume. But I don't listen to my radio at that volume just wanted to see what it would do. Good bass and hits the lows perfectly. I am very impressed with the quality of this sub. Especially for the price.

Pros: Small size and good sound!

Cons: None so far.

Great Little Addition

What a great addition to my trucks sound. I didn't have a lot of dollars to put into getting an addition for more sound. With this all in one package I was able to achieve a pretty awesome sound! Just goes to show bigger is not always better. Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Fairly easy to install. Take your time, patience will help more than anything. Adjustments on the unit are simple to do and I really like the "punch" control! Will fit just about anywhere in the vehicle.

Cons: They did not supply end to attach cable to the battery. You will need to get one for that.

This is a great little powered sub for someone looking to balance out the factory system. I have had Rockford products back since the first punch sub was made. They make a solid product. This is ideally for a small cabin then my supercrew f150 bit it sounds decent. I did make some mounts and I have it firing down under the rear seat. It completly changed the quality of bass it produced. The audio pickup function didn't work but the dc did for the remote. Overall I am pleased for the $209 spent on a open box model. I wish I had a 10" but it won't fit how I need it to. I plan on buying another one of these for my new wrangler also. It's solid built and hopefully lives up to the lasting quality of my past RF products.

Pros: Compact, solid built, comes with amp kit, decent sound

Cons: Distorts a little easy, it's a shallow tiny sub what do you expect though.

I installed this in a 2010 F150 S CREW. Kenwood DDX492 head unit with Polk DXi571 in all four doors. The install was pretty straight forward. This unit puts out plenty of clean bass once you get it dialed in. I used a piece of studded carpet runner trimmed to fit attached with Velcro to keep it from moving around on the floor instead of screwing into truck floor..

Pros: Easy installation. Very good adjustments for personal preferences.

Cons: Connections for power, ground and remote sense are small. You will need a tiny flathead screwdriver to make these connections.

VERY Impressed!

Ryan from Durham, NC on 3/17/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had this sub installed in my '13 RAV4 (factory head unit) the other day. I've come from a past of mostly having 2 10s or 2 12s from upgraded head units, so I wasn't expecting a whole lot, just looking for something to help fill in the lows my door speakers were missing. But, once they pulled it up and I sat in it, I was like DUDE WTF! And it was a GOOD WTF! I couldn't believe how much bass this sub produces! I'm sure having an open interior instead of putting it in a trunk plays into it, but still, WHOA! It took a little bit of tweaking to get it where I wanted, but that was easy to do thanks to the remote bass level control that comes with it (mounted under the steering column). I'm not sure what other settings they set on the actual amp after installing it, but I've got the remote level about halfway up. Louder led to distortion, but it's current level allows for nice and tight bass, even with the boominess. I've tested it with both hard rock and metal (quick hits from bass drum sound and feel great) as well as rap and techno, and I wouldn't want anything more than this in my current vehicle. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Pros: Feels very well built. Doesn't take up much space. Sounds AMAZING, with no qualifiers. Bonus points for my installers who used velcro instead of screws for mounting (allows for easy removal if I need to use my entire cargo space)! Remote bass control is great too.

Cons: My original goal for mounting was under the rear seat, where my amp for my door speakers was mounted, but the sub was too high for that, and it was too wide to be mounted under the passenger seat without sticking out some, but that may only have been due to having vents under the seat.

Rockford Fosgate PS-8 self powered subwoofer

Michael from slidell, LA on 3/5/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Excellent product that perectly fit under the seat of my 1985 Chevrolet C10 pickup. It came with all the wiring needed to wire it up right into my factory fuse box. Sounds great, nice tight bass that reaches the lows very well, much better than the installed 6x9s could ever produce. The 150 amp built in amp provides good power. HIghly recommended for tighter spaces.

Pros: Great sound, easy installation. Comes with the wiring needed to get it connected.

Cons: I couldn't get the auto-power sensing features to work to turn on the subwoofer. Luckily my aftermarket deck had a connection for a remote antenna that powered it up.

Perfect replacement for the Bose OE subwoofer in our Nissan Armada.

Francis from NYC on 3/4/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works as advertised and was impressed with overall finish of the PS-8. Install wasn't too difficult; just had to place a couple shims to elevate the PS-8 under the driver's seat so it wouldn't block the HVAC lower duct for the 2nd row passengers. The PS-8 also comes with a wiring kit so that was a nice plus. The remote bass control is also great since adjustments are needed when switching and listening from different sources (aux, radio).

Pros: Great price. Sturdy construction. More than enough bass for a daily driver and huge improvement over the OE Bose subwoofer.

Cons: None so far.

Randy from Hilo, HI on 2/22/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, this powered sub is what you can expect from a compact unit that can fit under a seat. If your sound system doesn't have a low end, this will fill it in nicely. If you listen to songs with heavy bass or you really want to feel the bass hit, this sub isn't for you. I don't think there is any better powered sub out there that can fit under your seat.

Pros: Comes with wiring kit, just need to buy rca cables if you have an aftermarket headunit Takes up very little space

Cons: Power cable that came with the sub was a little short since my battery is on the opposite side from my firewall hole

Put this Sub in my 01 Silverado ext cab with Pioneer head unit and Rockford speakers in all the doors (factory sizes) I listen to all types of music and this thing makes the whole system sound fantastic. **it is not for you if you want to impress/annoy the neighbors** In side the truck it seems like it is blasting the whole block but its not. Also...you have to spend some time tuning everything (as usual)

The PS-8 is incredible

JB from Oregon on 12/29/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I don't typically write reviews, but this thing is pretty incredible. I was torn between this and the comparable kicker model. The kicker had more reviews and was $50 more, so I rolled the dice and I'm glad I did. This thing is built like a tank (all metal), small, fits easily under the seat ('05 Saab 9-2x) and sounds great. I listen mostly to rock and indie music and it rounds out the sound nicely. I've tried it with more bass heavy music and it does well with that as well. Pretty impressive output from something so small. I highly recommend it if you're looking for something to round out the low end of your sound, but don't want to spend a ton of money or take up a lot of space.

Pros: Easy installation, well built, great sound quality

Cons: None yet

Nice amp. I needed something in my 2015 Lincoln MKC because factory stereo was lacking. The powered sub sounds good for an 8" low profile unit. I did not attempt this install myself and glad I didn't! I took it to a place in Clarksville, TN. these people know what they are doing. My vehicle has "active noise canceling" and other systems that proved to be a challenge that I would never would have been able to overcome.

Pros: Resanonable cost, size, good sound. Crutchfield was helpful but did not have info on my year vehicle. More of a reason to take it to a pro.

Cons: None on this unit but beware of install issues on new vehicles and push button start systems. You just can't "hook it up" like we used to do in years past.

I have a 2013 F150 xlt super crew . I already upgraded the door speakers and was looking for something to add some bass to my system. I was not looking for earth shaking, so I ordered this sub unit. The sub came quickly. The guys at Cruchfield assured me all I would need to install it would come in the kit. It took me longer to decide where exactly where I wanted to install it than it did to install it. This thing rocks! Sounds great and adds just enough bass to make the system sound like a premium unit. I am more than pleased!

Pros: Small, easy to install and has multiple adjustments to tune it to your liking.

Cons: None, so far

J.T. from West Virginia on 6/30/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed the PS-8 under the driver's seat in my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to fill in the bottom end of the sound which was missing when using only the main speakers. Keeps it out of sight and does not take any cargo space away vs. a sub box in the rear cargo area. I am quite impressed with the PS-8. No, it doesn't "hit" like a 10" or 12" sub in the right enclosure with a good amp behind it, but once you get the PS-8 tuned & dialed in the way you want it, it does a surprisingly good job for a small amplified sub enclosure. The included remote level control is handy when you want/need to adjust the bass level. The PS-8 definitely adds the lower two octaves that were, for the most part, missing when only running the main speakers. If you're looking for a compact powered sub that will compliment the bottom end of your system, and do so without drawing much attention to your vehicle from the outside while you enjoy the sounds inside your car, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better, small, "all in one" package. It doesn't "thump" like larger subs, but if you want to fill in the lower frequencies very nicely, definitely take a look at the PS-8.

Pros: Relatively small. Good low frequency response for a 8" sub ("rated" down to 25 Hz, and it honestly does reproduce the lower frequencies very well). Easy installation. The hardest part is planning how you want to mount it, especially if you're doing something like mounting it under a seat, etc.. Great overall product.

Cons: None that I've encountered.

Looking for a little bass without giving up my hatchback Cato space. Had Car Toys mount it under the passenger seat. The guys at the shop were amazed. They hadn't seen this one before. Fantastic sound! I have to turn it down when I have a passenger in the seat. Only negative is it didn't come with a remote volume switch. I had to buy that from the installer. Crutch field service was stellar as usual.

Highly impressed with the build and sound quality out of this single 8" enclosure. Housed in a sturdy metal enclosure that has some weight to it. The height of just over 3" is perfect for fitting under the driver seat of my 2006 tundra. The bass control knob that's included is great to dial in just the right amount of bass whether it's rap or metal that I'm banging. You can't go wrong with this one, I'm glad I waited for it to release.

Pros: Excellent Sound quality from an 8" Build quality of enclosure Compact size to accommodate my installation

Cons: Audio sense didn't seem to work, amp stayed on all the time, OK though, just ran remote turn on wire, now all is good.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch PS-8 is an all-in-one bass solution featuring an 8" woofer in a cast aluminum enclosure and a built-in 150 watt RMS amplifier.

Closed-Loop Design: The closed-loop design allows Rockford Fosgate to build the woofer, amplifier, and enclosure as a single system, optimizing each element for the best possible performance with the others.

Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

CEA-2031 and CEA-2006 Compliant: The subwoofer's power handling and the amplifier's power output conform to CEA industry standards, allowing consumers to make an apples-to-apples comparison between the PS-8 and other powered subwoofers bearing the CEA-2031 and CEA-2006 logos.

Integrated Amplifier: The 8" woofer is powered by a built-in Class-D amplifier rated at 150 watts RMS.

Quick Disconnect Power/Ground: The power, ground, and remote turn-on wires attach to a quick disconnect terminal block, so the subwoofer can be easily removed when you need more storage space. Each terminal is a set screw clamp and will accept up to 10 gauge wire.

Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line level (RCA) or speaker level signal. The included 12" input harness has a Molex plug on one end and female stereo RCA jacks on the other. When using a speaker level input, cut the RCA jacks off and splice into the remaining wires. Adjust the Input Level switch to match your input type, High for speaker level input or Low for line level (RCA) input.

Auto Turn-On: The Auto Turn-On switch offers three options:

  • REM: the amp turns on when +12 volts DC is applied to the remote terminal
  • DC Offset: the amp turns on when a DC offset voltage is detected on the signal inputs (from a speaker level source)
  • Audio: the amp turns on when an incoming audio signal is detected (can be used with line level or speaker level inputs)

Note: When the DC Offset or Audio setting, the REM terminal becomes a 12 volt output, for turning an additional amplifier on.

Gain control: The rotary gain control allows you to match the output level of your headunit to the input level of the powered subwoofer.

Crossover: The 12 db/oct low-pass crossover is always engaged; the crossover point is adjustable from 50 to 120 Hz.

Punch EQ: Use the rotary dial to adjust the bass boost; continuously variable from 0 to +12 dB, centered at 45 Hz.

Phase: A switch allows you to reverse the phase of the subwoofer (0°, 180°).

Protection Circuit: The PS-8's amplifier is equipped with thermal overload, short circuit, and reverse polarity protection. The amplifier will shut down if any of these situations is encountered.

Remote Punch Level: A wired Punch Level Control is included so you can adjust the output level from the driver's seat. The remote has a bracket to mount it under the dash. The included 15' cable, with a 3.5mm mini-plug on each end, connects the remote to the subwoofer.

Note: The Punch Level Control measures approximately 2-3/8" wide x 1" high x 2" deep (3-1/2" deep including the knob and cable).

I do not have a concrete answer on that. I would venture to say that if you bridge the two amps your bridging your power. Each amp would provide the sound that you dial into it on the side panel. I'm almost positive that each remote bass boost link would function independently. Rockford is awesome at answering specific questions like that, so I've heard from my friends that run a more complex system than what I have.

Can these fit under my backseats in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

I have no idea. I do know that it will not fit under my 2009 Subaru Outback seats. I believe the thickness of the unit is listed at 2-7/8 inches. I suggest measuring something and cutting it to that length (e.g. pen, stick, match, etc) and then seeing if the object will stand upright under your Jeep seats.
[ Roy  May 19, 2018 ]

If you've got six inches to spare then these should fit quite nicely.

We installed ours in a '91 Chevrolet 1500 pickup. Having absolutely no clue what we needed to order to make it fit we solely relied on Crutchfield's team of experts. Received the order with instructions and everything fit as promised. Have shopped here a few times just because of the expertise of their customer support.

How easy is removal? Want to install in a Chevy Avalanche under back seat. However if I need to lower the midgate, think I may need to temporary remove from time to time. Once all the wires are run, can I simply unplug everything to remove, and then re-hook up when done?

Should be pretty easy to remove, even if you run speaker wires instead of aux cables, there is an adapter with an plug in for easy removal.

I just got this sub this week had it installed and it worked great until I drove up to my home. I got it installed at about 7000 ft and I live at 8500 ft. When I drive back to my house it starts rattling really bad. Then when I get home and leave my car off for awhile it works fine after that. I have had all the wires checked and still no resolution as to what it maybe. Any ideas here?

Q
Do subwoofer amps use a different rating standard? Asking because I see this unit has a 10 amp fuse but is rated at 150 watts RMS. How is that even possible when V x A = W ? At an overly optimistic 14.4 volt power source (13.8 volts typically) that yields a max of 144 watts at 100% efficiency. More typically at 13.8 volts and 80% efficiency it's a 110 watt output. I actually have one of these and it works and sounds great but it not a 150 watt amp.
[ Mark  Jan 08, 2017 ]

I believe that the unit is rated for a fuse up to 30 amps. 30 A x13.8 V x 80% = 330W
[ David  Oct 25, 2017 ]

100% efficiency isn't possible. I owned one and blew it's circuitry by asking "too much". Not just a own fuse. It's actual audible "crossover is nowhere near the low it professed.

My head unit only has one sub preamp output. Is this something I can use a Y-adapter for with the PS-8 without sacrificing any sound quality?

Hello Eric, it sounds to me like you want to hook up more than one subwoofer amp off your head unit??
[ Timothy  Jul 03, 2016 ]
A
I'm confused about why you would need a Y-adapter. Just run the sub out to the PS-8. I have mine plugged into the sub output on my equalizer. The equalizer splits out the sub vs non-sub frequencies and I need something to put the bass back into my system. After a little tweaking, it sounds great.

Q
Has anyone combined this unit with a factory Bose system in a GMC truck?
[ Ken  May 22, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
To answer your question, yes (Chevy Silverado, same factory Bose). But I offer this advice, do not expect this unit to be "loud". BUT, it is a great unit to add to the factory bass that the stock Bose speakers produce by themselves. However, I found that placement is everything. Under the driver seat is a great place to start; if your truck is an extended cab, under the back seat on the driver side is a good place too. Depending on how handy you are, best place I found was behind the back seat in my extended cab, mounted flush against the back of the cab. I hope this helps, enjoy the music.
[ Jerrod  May 24, 2016 ]

I don't have the factory Bose system. Trust me get it! You won't hear you coming down the street but it sounds fantastic inside the truck. My wife's not a huge bass fan but says I was right to install this unit.

[ Edwin  Feb 28, 2016 ]

We don't have the measurements of the space under the seat in your Murano. We did measure the rear cargo area and there is enough room for it to go there. If it helps any, the measurements on this powered subwoofer are 14-1/2" wide x 9-1/2" deep x 3-3/8" tall. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q
Can this be wired through the pass through of another amp?
[ Perry007  Feb 26, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
It likely will work with the pass through of the other amp for signal, but that will depend on the output of the other amp. As long as the pass through is full range you should be good to go. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to confirm. They'll be able to take a look at your current amp, and make sure this one will work with it.

You'll just need to look at the dimensions of the PS-8 and then check under your seat. I don't know anything about the Scion. You might have to pull the seat if there is room under it but you can't slide it through the front or back.

Q
can the self contained PS-8 be wired to a cord that turns off with the key, or does it have to go directly to the battery?
[ mike  Jul 03, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
The red power wire should be wired directly to the battery with the inline fuse to provide high current and to avoid noise and interference from the rest of the car's electrical system. The blue wire is for the remote turn-on and ususally connected to the head unit. Check the installation instructions for additional options for the remote turn on. IF the PS-8 power wire is switched, sound quality may be compromised.
[ John  Jul 06, 2015 ]
A
Wire it direct to the same (+) as the deck, black to a local ground. Connect blue out of the deck to blue on the PS-8 wire harness. It'll kick on/off with the deck, which is theoretically wired to the ignition.
