What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Kenwood KSC-SW11 150W Underseat Active Subwoofer with Passive Radiator
  • Amazing compact sub. Comes with power and remote on cables and a mixture of fittings.
  • The sub itself is really quite compact but looks fantastic! Great for hiding under a seat, or if you want to show it off, you could easily mount it in view without being shy about its looks.
  • Small and compact. Easy to install as the power cable is thin. Very happy to have this.
  • Great sound, small size, nice light up remote (blue), plenty of tweaking including phase !
  • It's not equal to the big subwoofers, but it's perfect for the job if you don't have boot space to waste.
Pioneer TS-WX120A Amplified Subwoofer System
  • Excellent power for compact size, comprehensive wiring and fixings better for long extended bass in classical, jazz blues etc.
  • Great product sounds great and hardly noticeable in the car small and compact.
  • Nice compact sub. Fits neatly, and good bass which is well controllable. Won't shatter your windows, but that's probably a good thing.
  • It's really compact and fits fine under my little Ford Fiesta seats fairly easily.
  • I needed a small sub, because i have a Reno Clio 4 and this one is the perfect fit for under the seat.

  • This little unit fits nicely under my seat, and compliments the rest of the sound perfectly.
  • It adds a well needed clear sounding bass to the car, it doesn't blow your head off but I wouldn't want it to!!!
  • Just installed that in my car and it's brilliant. Easy to install, fits perfectly under my seat and it sounds great.
  • Perfect installation , fits discretely under my drivers seat in my small hatchback , amazing sound , really fills the gap in the sound from ordinary car speakers !
Pioneer TS-WX120A Amplified Subwoofer System
  • The sound off nicely and doesn't get troubled by any bass lines I have played so far.
  • It has just enough bass to make even the tinniest stereo sound like a proper sound system.
  • Produce decent low sound level, not like big subwoofer box in the trunk, but definitely makes difference and improves factory fitted audio quality.
  • I am really happy with this product..very easy to install..has very much improved the sound..yes..i recommend.
  • What a brilliant piece of kit, smaller than I expected in size but certainly not in sound and quality!

What customers say about "Features"
Kenwood KSC-SW11 150W Underseat Active Subwoofer with Passive Radiator
  • The wired remote control is a nice touch, allowing easy adjustment of your bass settings on the go.
  • For a compact sub it sounds fantastic, and as an upgrade for the dismal stock audio setup found in most modern, cheap, small city cars you can't go wrong with this.
  • The wired remote has adjustments for volume and frequency and has a wide range of settings from next to no bass, to impressive levels of punch. I like the blue glow, too!
  • The sub comes with a small remote control which allows the user to adjust the bass volume, the frequency cut-off level and a 0-180 degree phase adjuster.
  • Setting up the sub is easy, set the volume dial on the remote to the 10 or 11 o'clock position, set the frequency cut-off to approx 80Hz (the 12 o'clock position) and the phase shift to zero.
Pioneer TS-WX120A Amplified Subwoofer System
  • The control is very handy, as it lets you fine tune the sound easily.
  • This is a superb product, those that have been disappointed must have had it installed incorrectly.
  • Great unit for the price. Rather easy to install with some electrical knowledge.
  • East to install. Took me 30 mins and can be removed just as easily when I sell the car.
  • I chose to install it by myself and I done it for 2 days. If you're driving french car, especially Renault - don't waste your time and pay someone to do instead of you.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Kenwood KSC-SW11 150W Underseat Active Subwoofer with Passive Radiator
  • Easy to wire in, sounds excellent and compact enough to fit in the smallest of spaces. Excellent product.
  • Purchased to go into a VW T5.1 for a little more kick. Connected temporarily to the radio to see how it sounds like.
  • It is provided with cables witch are meant to be connected to the cables leading to the speakers. I have a RCA output on my radio so no need to cut or strip any wires.
  • The remote control is really useful for fine tuning the sound on the move for different types of music.
  • The remote is ugly so I set up sub and left remote hidden away under seat.
Pioneer TS-WX120A Amplified Subwoofer System
  • A gift to install also especially considering that you don't need to feed a big thick power cable through the bulkhead.
  • This took me 3 hours in total to install (routing cables under carpets) but its amazing that this can be powered via a piggyback from the fuse box!
  • I have connected it to car stereo wire (using cable splitter) because i found out it is only 10Amp fuse required on it (stereo is 20Amp).
  • Overall takes 2 hours to fit it including masking all wires. Easy to install and connect.
  • Simple to fit to Pioneer HU, connected through to battery box via the front.
