It's a good quality sub and box. However, for the price it should have been built with a little more attention to detail. At first I thought my amp or head unit wiring was messed up because the sub woofer wasn't working. After removing the sub from it's enclosure I found out they never attached the wiring inside the box. That's a mistake that never should have happened. Another fault is that it actually sits a little too high under the rear seat of my 2004 Ford F150 causing the seat to barely latch shut. More disappointing is the fact that this causes a slight lift to the seat bottom which is very noticeable when the smaller passenger side seat bottom sits lower since the sub box doesn't sit under that smaller seat bottom.
Pros: Great sound. Plenty of Bass.
Cons: Inside wiring wasn't even connected. Sits too high causing the bottom seat cushion to rise about 1/2" higher than the passenger seat bottom cushion.

It fit perfect under the back seat and has a really nice sound! Has a lot of pop for such a small tube.
Pros: Great bass with a lot of pop!
Cons: A little pricey!

I am sure this is probably an awesome sub But I am waiting for a resolution on the color discrepancy from Crutchfield. When you order this and it says "SuperCab and SuperCrew trucks (Black (matches cloth interior))", know that this means the enclosure is not "black" it is "dark gray". I ordered this with the assumption that if it says black, you get black! I ordered this on 12/24/2016. To date (01/14/2017) I have not been able to install this in my truck. Crutchfield has put in a call to JLA and has been waiting for a response back for 1.5 weeks. After ordering this, it's then that I saw on my order that black means "dark gray". I only found that out after this arrived at my home. I will update this when and if this is resolved. It's a shame that I spent this much and still have yet to get this resolved.
Pros: Size, quality
Cons: Black (matches cloth interior) is NOT really black and Will Not match factory black carpet. This is actually Dark Gray which matches gray seat cloth.

Fit and finish is perfect. The unit moves a lot of air, which is problem in this truck without an active DSP. JL solved the phase issues with the truck. I sent mine back only because I couldn't get the bass to "disappear", meaning that I don't want to localize the bass. It has the usual tactile transfer you get with a down-fire sub so you will always feel the bass, which is bad in completion. If you are looking for a lot of bass and don't compete in sound quality completion this box is for you. Don't balk at the price, it's well worth it. Crutchfield customer service is second to none.
Pros: Amplitude, fit and finish, overall quality
Cons: Tactile transfer, bass is easy to localize

Let me start off by saying I was really skeptical of this.I've tried every thing to fit under my back seat to get the bass I was looking for. And i have came close the closes thing was the pioneer Sw250x shallow mount 10 it was really good for what I needed for awhile. It hit ok for sealed small box but the lows wasn't there so I always wanted to try this stealth box but the price was to much this price is way to steep for these things even though they don't cost that much to build thats why I gave it 4 stars.Well I got a scratch and dent for a lot less so I jumped on it and let me tell you one word sums it up AWESOME! It sounds so good and the bass hits so good loud I'm running an alpine mrp-m500 witch is 500 watts rms @2ohm The sub In the stealth box is also 2ohm.I wouldn't pay full price for it but I'd pay the scratch-and-dent price for it. Don't hesitate just find one for around that price there out there or just keep checking back at Crutchfield your bound to score like I did but it is definitely the best I've heard I had 2 solobarics L7's and this thing sounds almost as good as they did if someone tells you differently then they did something wrong with the install or they don't have a good amp to push the power to make it rock alpine mrp-m500 pushes this thing greatly so for the price you will have an amp to push it. It does work those of you that are still hesitating trust me. The guys at my job hear me coming 3 to 4 blocks away now I am very happy with it wish I would have looked for one sooner.
Pros: Great sub JL audio knows how to make it work it really does work very strong material
Cons: Price is way to much 500 bucks would be good enough to pay

I just recieved the stealth box for my 2004 F-150. Very easy installatilon with the supplied screws to the factory holes on the seat. The sound is very clear and matches my JL Audio 500/1, specially if you listen to any type of music. The price is a bit too high for one subwoofer. For the best sound make sure you set the 500/1 to JL Audio specifications. The box is very light and it is almost flushed with the back seat without losing leg room. It also makes the truck look like it has no sound system. Now I have completed my JL Audio system!!!

I have a 2008 Black F150 Super Crew with black leather seats. This sub box fit great under the rear seat. I have seen statements where it says the back seat is slightly lifted following installation; however, I cannot tell...so if it is, it is VERY small. It blends in nicely. The sound is great. Its perfect for what I wanted. I'm running 300 watts to it via an Alpine Amp and it sounds awesome. Its a little pricey, but it is worth it in every way. The box is very well made, the sub is a W3. JL Audio is the way to go.

If you have a Ford F150 and are looking for good solid bass and great mid bass punch and still want a factory look, just buy this jl audio stealthbox and be done with. The sound quality is great, and ofcourse it sounds like more than one ten inch woofer. I know the price is steap, but you will get over that eventually. Great speaker and enclosure all in one.
