UPDATE: After 25 months of regular use, I am pleased to say that I have not had any issues with this product. The sub and it's control control knob work the same as they did when I first installed it.
UPDATE: After 37 months of regular use, the sub works just the same as new. The volume knob has some issues. sometimes the knob loses it's connection... which results in the bass going to it's full setting... which isn't that loud, but still annoying for classical music or talk radio. A quick wiggle of the knob, the connect comes back and everything goes back to normal. It should be noted, that I used a grinder to trim the knob housing to fit in a spot in my dash which makes it a bit fragile. I'm assuming this is the reason for the issue. Again, the sub itself has no issues despite being zip tied to the back of my truck's bench seat for years.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago. My wife and I bought a '93 Jeep Wrangler as a toy with no stereo at all. I installed a very capable Sony head unit and some custom speaker enclosures housing 6.5" component drivers that I mounted on the Jeep's roll bars. Where's the bass? With interior space and $ a concern, I went on the hunt for a compact subwoofer to compliment the component speakers. When I found the VCTBS8 Vector for this crazy-low price, I was a little skeptical, but the brand name carried a lot of weight with me and after reading the reviews I decided to purchase. I removed the driver's seat and mounted the Vector to the bottom of the seat, firing downward. I can still spray out the interior of the vehicle with water and not worry about getting the sub wet. Also, considering the vehicle does not lock, it's completely invisible to would-be thieves.
It does more than I had hoped -- the frequency response is excellent for such a compact unit, and the little volume knob that comes with it is very handy when listening to different types of music. I have gotten nothing but compliments from passengers in the vehicle. Bonus - when camping, I used to take a crate full of large/heavy weather-proof battery powered speakers to hook up to my Ipod, now I don't need to - this thing puts out enough bass that we can just use the Jeep as the campsite sound system. Also, the REAL RMS power output of this unit is 95 watts.
Summary: Great for COMPLEMENTING the bass output of other speakers. Amazingly compact unit, great for limited-space installs.Read more ›
After playing with the crossover, boost and main level controls a couple of times, I found the right balance of sound for my type of music, the car acoustics and road noise. Once you get the sound balanced out, the presence is very realistic. I found that if I reduced the bass on the radio and increased the boost level a little on the sub-woofer, I could get cleaner sound at higher volume levels. Even with the unit flat against the back of the seat, I could still get a very nice, natural sound.
Overall, the unit seems very well built with good quality parts. The controls on the amp give you a wide range of sound customization. You can adjust it from an obnoxious 'boom-boom' to a refined, natural sound. The only negative I can find is that the main power screw terminals should be covered or insulated to prevent short circuits from tools, seat parts, gum wrappers and other things under and behind the seats where this amp is intended to fit. I just wrapped some electrical tape over them for safety. This same unit is also sold with some name brands stamped on it at a higher price at the time I purchased it.

4 years and still going strong. Works great. Just enough of a "kick" to round out the sound and give the seat it is under a thump feel. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ædam

Had it for about a year and it broke after one very cold night. Would not recommend for anyone that lives in very cold climates. Sounded and worked great prior to that.Published 16 months ago by Heather Ogle
This is a great product to fit a powered subwoofer into a tight space. It is some work to wire it all in, but works pretty good. Read morePublished 16 months ago by mikewzman
