Rockford Fosgate P300-10 Powered Subwoofer
I wanted to add more bass to the stock Bose system, so I looked into getting a Rockford Fosgate powered sub.
The SS has become the primary family car for most things, including of course the weekly family trip to the supermarket that results in a trunk full of groceries. Wow how priorities change when you have a family! So anyway, maintaining a sizable amount of trunk space was an important consideration for me.
The 12 inch was test fit first, but it took more trunk space than I was willing to give up. It was too tall to fit below the horizontal support at the back of the trunk so it left unused space behind it. It dominated one of the corners and seemed as though it took-up a quarter of the trunk space.
The 10 inch fits great. Not only is it a couple inches smaller in all dimensions than the 12; it can also sit further back in the trunk than the 12. It is just able to slide under the horizontal support at the back of the trunk so the sloped rear of the enclosure can fit right up against the seatback.
The bass it produces exceeded my expectations, particularly for such a small unit. It can play louder than I care to listen to, and I'm sure it is loud enough to be an annoyance the drivers next to you, but not so loud that people can hear you coming from a block away. This is plenty for me. It is punchy, and able to reproduce the low notes that the stock system alone struggled to with. So overall, I'm very happy with this addition.
It comes with a remote level control. I figured it was important to keep it accessible up front, but didn't want to have it fixed to the dash. I like the clean lines of the interior so I didn't want the dash cluttered with an accessory. I settled to have it installed in the center console storage compartment. While not the most ergonomic location, it is accessible by both driver and front passenger when needed, and is out of sight.
