- Remote to control the frequency (Crossover), gain, and phase (180 or normal). Plug it right next to main port.
- Wire harness with long power wire to run to the battery from the cabin, and it has plug to disconnect and use your own power line wire. I use 8 gauge power wire, easier to run it from engine bay to the cabin. The remote turn on wire is also long, but it doesn't have plug to disconnect it, so for this, either you use the whole wire or cut and connect it to your own remote turn on.
- Some metal brackets to mount the sub to the floor.
- Warranty Card + Manual
- Small size, fit under front passenger seat
- Simple connection, 2 plugs, that's it.
- Enough punch (150 watt RMS) and clear
- Beside what the remote can control, there is nothing else. Some other similar product Infinity Basslink SM/JBL Bass PRO has some switches to control the setting from the unit itself + remote. But not KSC-PW8. Minor issue.
I have a very basic setup.
JVC double-din with backup camera and 3 pre-amps.
Having a subwoofer pre-amp line in is a major plus bc you’ll able to adjust the bass from the deck. Actually, I have the subwoofer remote cranked up to max and SW +2 on my deck. It’s perfect.
The wiring is "adequate" for basic installation and there's enough power wire length to run to the battery from the driver's side seat area on the JK. Make sure to order a set of male to male RCA cables if you plan to use your aftermarket stereo headunit preouts.
If you're looking to maintain as much room as possible in your JKU but need some low frequency fill for your music then grab an under seat rack (to keep the sub off the floor in case of water intrusion) from eBay and mount one of these in it.
The reason for my 1 star review: around a month after my purchase, I began noticing a fluttering noise, at first I assumed it was just a piece of paper or a bag being moved by the sub woofer, however, this was not the case. It seems something is loose inside of the speaker. Along with that, the warranty process is not satisfactory. After one month, the seller on Amazon does not back the product, leaving us to deal with Kenwood's "authorized" repair/warranty centers (the only one I found was in California).. So, now just a couple of months after purchasing and installing, I have to uninstall it, box it up, pay to ship it from the South East to California so they can check it and either repair or replace it. Excuse me for rambling, but this is beyond frustrating.
Let me end this by saying again, the kit is super convenient and easy, but beyond that, I will probably try to purchase things from local stores with a local warranty rather than Amazon.
I purchased the little brother Kenwood KSC-SW11 first and was less than pleased. After finding out on another review the Kenwood KSC-PSW8 uses the same harness/cables I swapped it out and was blown away. The PSW8 is a significant step up from the SW11 in both quality, sound, range, and power level. Do not skimp out on anything smaller or of lesser quality, this is perfect and what I would consider the bare minimum for a "subwoofer". It is perfect for those listening to music without trying to shake their neighbors cars or neighborhood.
Do note, it is quite a bit bigger than some of the other "underseat" powered subwoofers that will fit between the rails in a perpendicular position. I had to run it parallel between the seat rails and over the floor vents.

When connected to the sub out there is quite a few settings to do on the head unit but worth setting up fully.
The sub itself? Very impressive. Clear sounding. Really fills out the bottom end. I Used to work at a car dealership and always checked out the stereos in the new models. This sub sounds better than the vast majority of upgraded Bose sound systems.
