    I went to a dedicated sub and amp comb as this ultimately no longer met my needs. This includes all the original items from the packaging including the Alpine harness and remote bass knob. I can include some lengths of 8 AWG wire for power, but I was running the sub off of my auxiliary fuse panel, so I don't have a fuse holder. You will need one of those if you don't have that for your vehicle. I can also throw in a set of RCAs if you're interested. I used the TT subwoofer harness off the stock Entune HU. At this point I am not including it as I plan on re-using it for a family member.

    $180 + shipping/fees

    The box measurements are 16" x 11" x 11", 14 lbs.

    It sounds okay. Definitely gives you some low end but not the punch you feel in the same way a 10” with a dedicated amp does.

    Part of that might be because I used the rear speakers as my line level in which are weaker than the front.

    It’s good if you want to flush out your sound but if you want to be 18 again it won’t meet your needs. I change it because I wanted to be closer to 18 again.

    I'm still milling it over, it's perfect for the truck and I don't think I need the punch of anything bigger.
