Strengths: Solid high performing bass, good sized box, easy maimtenance
Weaknesses: none, could use a Jensen logo on the speaker
Summary: Naturally, Jensen is going to be a recognized brand. The 8" Jensen bass tube system is portable & very easy to install. It is extremely light weight & perfectly sized for compact areas. It has a well made speaker grill & cross bar. It booms & although the speaker itself doesn't have fancy logos, it is perfect for my sports car. What I like about the bass tube is that is has a beautiful speaker grill & cross bar, in addition to being compact. It is 100 times better than making a wooden box & will always be cleaner than making a wooden box.

Strengths: good quality of build. I play it hard, daily
Weaknesses: It pops sometimes, and there is a litte distortion.
Summary: Over all I think this is pretty desent sub-woofer for the size and money. I have it hooked up to a RF 120rmX1 at 2ohms. It set behind me in the back of my pick-up, and it hits good with the volume half way up. It pops sometimes when I'm listing to rap on a good burn cd.

Strengths: Very compact and affordable add-on for those whoose looking for subs w/ box under $60. Uses dual voice coil. Just right amount of bass that''s not intrusive to other cars.
Weaknesses: Small and not powerful enough for weak sounding CDs. Only one 8" sub.
Summary: I own a 2001 Mustang GT Conv. with MACH460. Great sounding stock system but I want more thump! My budget for a subs is not a priority and I used my stock amps(email me how I did firstname.lastname@example.org). Now I can FEEL the sound and all my friends are liking it. Also when the top is up the bass is not intrusive to other cars.
