Armrest subwoofer

FYI - I came across this subwoofer that looks like a perfect fit behind the rear seat armrest. It is only a 8" but takes up virtually no trunk space and can be mounted to fire right through the skipass into the cabin.

Power handling is pretty high so I am considering this as part of my eventual audio upgrade.

Bav is coming out with their subwoofer so I'm waiting to see how that works. This Kicker I don't know if it'll fit under the seat. Wouldn't be ideal to run this behind the ski port. U could always have a shop build u a single 10" or 12" shallow sub in a sealed enclosure with better results if you're concerned about space. Also were u plans on running an amp?

I think Bavsound replaces the underseat speakers, which are really not good as subwoofers. This would be a compact trunk solution to complement the underseat woofers and I think 300 watts fired straight into the cabin would probably work OK without giving up trunk space or adding weight.

I have top hifi so the replacing the whole amp is an expensive proposition. I plan to use a jl 500/3 with two channels to the underseat wonders and the sub channel to something like this.
