    I'm in the market for some extra bass and dont want to do a whole system upgrade. I'm probably going to go with a powered sub like this. I've been looking at the Sound Ordinance, but may do some research on this one.

    Yeah there's a bunch, including that one, that seem to get pretty solid reviews.

    I can't find anything on the mb quart one other than whats on Amazon, and a few things on youtube. Hence me being suspicious.

    Has anyone ran the 10" hideaway? I've been wanting one but am unsure if it will fit under the seat.

    might be worth a call to MB Quart to see if its a knock off

    When I was a kid I ran a dirt cheap 600W amp to drive 400 watts worth of JL woofers. I figured I'd just run it without ever coming close to straining it and still come out ahead of buying a name brand. Nope, it sounded like hammered shit. Lesson learned, now I don't mess with off brand audio.

    Yeah I think you get what you pay for, mostly. Once you're above some threshold its kind of hard to to screw up too bad. I've had a 500W RMS amp driving a 120W RMS slim sub under the passenger seat of my nissan for almost a decade now, and its been fine. Sounds great in a sealed diy box. That said, the amp is Alpine and the sub is Pioneer, so its decent gear.

    Really the only reason I'm looking at ones with built in amps is space is too much of a premium in my taco.

    Yeah, I'm not willing to give up that much space though. I think I could squeeze a 10 under the seat if I wanted, but then I'd have to put the amp under my drivers seat or something.

    Im in the same boat. dont really want to give up much space and only want to add a tad bit of extra boom to the bass. i thought about building a custom box to stick under the seat with a skar 6.5 but not sure if there is enough room under there

    Appears to be legit. The last MB Quart speakers I bought were hecho in PRC. Sounded excellent, however. I had a set of German made MB's in my T-100 and they were heavenly.

    Maybe. I dunno how much Amazon verifies though. I sent an email to the sales account on MB quarts website. $119 is such an outlier.
