Hi guys,

Am thinking of getting an active sub to put under the car seat. Did a search in the forum and results are topics that were some time back, so thought I ask again to see if there are new developments :) I'm not an audiophile so I don't need high end one, but same time don't want to get very cheap brandless/china ones that might not last.

Just looking for one roughly that is value for money for its performance. My Scirocco is due to arrive soon, so since I don't have the car yet I don't have the under seat space measurements but would like to shortlist some options first.

I have read some discussion on Pioneer TS-WX11A. Also saw 3 models from Steelmate SW826, SW826V & SW833V2. Any thoughts?

Congrats on the Sirocco. The Pioneer one is pretty good. Can consider the Alpine SWE-1000 too. I am using it now. It's thicker than the Pioneer one so might not fit under the seat. Have to check first.

Yeah the Alpine SWE-1000 does look fat... probably might not fit under the seat. SWD-1600 is quite an old model right.

Keep the feedback coming :)

Personally, I did a little research by reading thru several forums and internet reviews before making my choice. And I got myself a Steelmate SW826. Have been using it for the past 2 years now. So far so good, just enough to meet my expectations. Dont expect hardcore bass which will shake the whole car though.

I also thinking of an under-seat woofer. But not those high end type. Just something simple to give a bit more bass only n easy to install.

I got this model too.

Soft bass type, not the hard bang bang type. but the remote control is useful.

Got it fix while holidaying in MY, cost me RM$800.

What much did you pay?

being using Pioneer TS-WX11A for 4 yrs. so far so good. steelmate seems stronger bass as it is 10"
but all these sub have limitation to low frequency. may need a good pair of speakers to help a little.

if driving a hatchback, the underseat woofer is useful. other than that, should get a proper subwoofer

Totally agree. Just changed from a 4 door to a 5 door.

Old 4 door had a cheapo sub 12" sub box. If not for the hatch boot, would've swapped it into the new car rather than a low powered active.

Space should be the only reason not to get a proper woofer.

SWE-1000 seems pretty good. Tested one in my colleague's car, the sound was pretty clear. Of course he went to do sound proofing, so i gues that helped in the sound quality also. I shld also do the same too

Myvi 1.5 adv user here
Planning to get one underseat sub.

Current setup
Factory touch screen HU
Front speakers replaced with JBL CS762 2 way coaxial.
Rear door speaker: 6" stock

With this setup bass is too low at volume 15
I have no plan to change HU or addin amplifier. The current HU is capable of delivering 20W RMS X4

Can someone help to chose from below.
