I just bought a Toyota Tacoma 4 door p'up. First modification was replacing the stock head unit with an iPod/USB compatible unit. I was lucky getting the truck without the more expensive (200) 6-CD changer OR the JBL audio system (a $2,000 upgrade I had in a Sienna years ago and found lacking in many regards).

Okay. Short of ripping out the storage paneling behind the rear seats - which I didn't want to do - and putting in a mondo amp, 12+ inch subwoofers and sound box for hundreds of dollars, all I wanted was more bottom in my audio.

Over at the [...] forum I found the Boss system discussed, pros and cons laid out fairly clearly, and after looking at several other (more expensive) options, I bought the Boss Bass1200 unit (not, unfortunately, on sale, but $110 was a good price in retrospect).

Getting the unit under the passenger seat (I keep a personal protection device under the driver's seat, it's 2010) was a little time-consuming, but there is definitely room there with about 1 CM clearance from the top edges.

I was blown away by the first song I played (I recommend just about anything Chris Squire plays his '65 Ric on). I'm still playing around with settings. No it's NOT a 12 or 14 inch subwoofer box with an 1800 watt amp behind it, but it's more than adequate. I've got several years' experience running high-power PA systems for rock bands (hobby and roadie jobs over the decades) and again, this isn't an earschplittenloudenboomer rock the car next to you a stoplights box, but you WILL feel the low notes in your back and butt. Kind of makes you tingly all over. My ears ring already, I don't need LOUD, I just needed to feel the bass. Drums are equally impressive.

How good is the bass output really?

I have a Forester with aftermarket speakers and radio. I did not want to give up space in my cargo area but was interested in supplementing the low-end audio. After trimming my underseat vents, I was able to install this fairly easily. (Be prepared to remove a seat to mount this unit properly, though.)

Afterwards, I was pleased with the flexibility and output of this unit. Even with reggae and other bass-heavy music, this unit works well. Let me be clear though--it won't knock your socks off. It will faithfully reproduce the bass and mid-bass but its output does not resonate much outside the vehicle. If it is your intention to impress others outside the car--this is not the unit for you. For those with space limitations though, including those with convertibles, you probably can't do much better, in terms of rated frequency response. This Boss Audio unit is reasonably priced at Amazon and is more than capable, especially compared with other powered ultra-compact subwoofers such as those from Kenwood or Blaupunkt.

UPDATE

My unit failed too. I tried a very similar unit from PYLE which did not fail, but I found annoying because it's thermal protection was invoked frequently. tried Kicker's attempt and that just sounded terrible-- I have since given up on the under-seat combo units.

I have owned and installed numerous stereo systems.

The good...
Size size size. this thing is small and I needed it to fit under the back seat in my pickup truck. It does that and it does add the sub bass I wanted. the install was easy and the remote gain level is a nice touch. It appears very durable and well built. Nothing flimsy on this unit.

the bad...
the sound quality does NOT compare with a box or bazooka. It just doesnt. If you have the space to put in a small box, do it. I put in a $50 Dual from walmart that sounds FAR better than this in my wifes Suburban. BUT, there is not that kind of room in my truck. Thats the tradeoff.

forget the outlandish power rating. This thing is 50 watts usable at most. Not sure on what planet they came up with the power rating.

The light on the remote gain is blindingly bright at night. Also, only the first 2-3 clicks on the gain seems to matter. After that, it is wide open. Still, it works and is MUCH easier than going through a touchscreen menu each time you want to turn the bass up or down.

verdict... for $100, it is a good compromise for a small cab where space is tight and you otherwise would not have a sub. The sound quality is mediocre. the remote gain is a nice feature. Overall, I would purchase again... but 4 stars is as overated as the power rating. I give it a 2 on sound, 4 on value, and 5 on size and ease of installation. Ordered the BOSS 8 ga install kit on Amazon to install this unit and it was easy. Would definately go that route again.

Please keep in mind that most reviews here are written right after the items are purchased.

I've had my BASS1200 for a little over a year. For what it is -- a low-profile subwoofer meant to fit in very tight spaces -- I would consider the performance satisfactory; when it works correctly, that is. I found the unit to sound a bit boomy at around 90 to 120 Hz, but I'm not sure if that had to do with the interior volume of my car, a Mazda 3 sedan. It fit perfectly beneath the passenger seat.

Right around the 13th month, my unit began to produce crackling/popping noises, which persisted even after I unplugged the input line. In addition to the weird noises, I noticed that the quality of the bass became less punchy, and the frequency response became extremely uneven. From that, I gathered that the fault lied within the driver circuit instead of the actual subwoofer (i.e. speaker portion). I promptly returned the unit to Boss Audio for warranty repair, which cost me $15 plus another $15 to ship it out to them. About a week and a half later, I received the unit back with a sticker indicating that no problems were found. Arghhh!! How about a phone call or email to ask me about the exact symptoms?! So now I'm out $30 for NOTHING.

With all that said, I try to keep in perspective the original purchase price and slim profile. If you're lacking space in your car; want something to last you about a year (maybe more); and are not an audiophile, then it might make sense to plop down $100 for one of these. Otherwise, I'd look for a better long-term investment, though it might require more space. I will never buy -- nor recommend -- a Boss product again. The lack of customer service killed the deal for me. My plan now is to tear the sucker apart myself, as I'm quite savvy with electrical/electronics stuff. I hope you have a better experience.
