1st Gen. Powered Subwoofer

I found and installed this powered subwoofer. Its a Blaupunkt THb 200A
It has 70 watts of power and has an 8 inch speaker. It also has High Level output, RCA input, and volume, crossover and phase control. I used industrial velcro to hold it in place and with the seat back it doesn't move. You could also place it under the front seats. It has a lot of power for what it is and I am very happy with it. It costs about $200

Hmmm how is the bass on that? I was thinking about getting subs.. but it seems like this will save a bunch of space... Although with 70 watts seems like it shouldn't have that great of bass.

I've got something similar, made by Kenwood. 150 watts and 2 - 8" speakers. Sounds good enough for me. Won't rattle the windows, but won't break the bank either. I think this was around $130 on E-bay.

The bass is actually pretty good for what it is. I already have a full Alpine system and the subwoofer really balanced out the sound. I didn't want to do anything permanant so this was perfect for me, also I gave up the search for sub boxes.
If you want more bass you could always get 2, and put them under the front seats.

How hard was the install on that? It looks way good.

Thanks. It was done at a local shop when I had the rest of my stuff put in. I had this same setup in my 97, and I had it transfered when I got my new truck. It came with a wiring diagram, and it really didn't look all that complicated, just a wire from the head unit and a power connection.

Does the head unit led match the amber guage cluster?

No, the Alpine head unit has blue lighting, but I really don't notice it. The sound more than makes up for any mismatched lighting, IMO.

I like the sound of that. Do you have the model # or some more info on it? I tried to find it on Kenwood's website but they don't advertise anything that looks quite like it.

I loked on E-bay. They changed speaker since I bought mine. It's called a
KSW-10. It looks a little different from mine, but it is still a powered subwoofer, 150 watts. Go to E-bay and search for a powered subwoofer. It's there, cheapest one I saw was about $114.
