Pros

  • This sub is capable of producing very low frequencies. If you are longing for a little speaker that can make very loud low notes, this is it.

  • The installation is easy. You can install it yourself if you are savvy. It shouldn’t cost you more than $50 if you want it installed for you. It is better than paying $400 for your local Toyota dealer for the sub, which might not even include installation fee.

Cons

The subwoofer may be difficult to install for first timers. And you do need an amp to ramp up the sub to get the full potential.
