Don't go for it.
With all the neon and the lack of "real" specifications ... it's for suckers!
Subs should be "heard but not seen."
Why would you care how the sub looks? It's only the SOUND that's important!

looks can mean something in car audio but i agree sound is best.. and looks only appeal and are worth it if your going to make it a show car. : O)

P.s.. that box .. UGLY..

well back to his orginal question..
the sub is rated at 400rms , and you say you have a 120x1rms?

well it will work.. the sub will be severely underpowered.
i am pretty sure there will not be much sound quality hence the box is prefab and un-tuned.

don't forget you will probably need a 12v source for the box

everything total is 105 shipped.

If you want to DiY, you can definitly pick up a decent sub for about 60-$70, and if you have the tools, buy some MDF and build your own box, also this way you can tune it accordingly to a SQ or SPL application.. more than likely this way you will save trunk space!

well i can assume that this would be your first system?

just go for it.. whether your amp puts out 120rms or 400rms, the sub will still move, but preferably 400rms This is an "acceptable" deal if it is your first system.

besides im pretty sure down the road, if you do still like car audio, you will obviously upgrade....

I would also suggest you check out the Diamond CM3, Kicker CompVR, PG Ti. All great entry level subwoofers.
