The kenwood works well if all you want is fill bass. Just not enough to really bump. By bump, I mean give you a back massage, make it impossible to see out your rear view mirrors, and make your ears bleed.

Go with a Basslink. I made a tutorial on how to mount and hook up a Basslink if you haven't seen it yet. The Basslink has a bunch of different mounting options, IMO better looking, and is more powerful. Plus you can buy a Basslink for like $150 brand new on eBay and for a little more from onlinecarstereo.com I believe. Whatever you do DON'T order from Crutchfield, they are retardedly overpriced and I would never buy from them. You might even be able to find a Basslink II in stock somewhere, I'm not sure why but Infiniti discontinued them for some reason and you can still find them once in a while for sale brand new. They are 50w more powerful if I remember tight.

with what you've posted, the first Kenwood is the one I'd go with. I just don't see 50W being anywhere near enough to notice. And with the remote gain ****, you can adjust it for whatever level you like on that song. I love my remote gain!

Cathy ( angrysyko ) had one of those in her lvl2 and then moved it to her F150. Dunno if she still has it but ' Brick House ' really thumped with it :)

Ive heard an Infinity Basslink and i was impressed for what it was. It hits pretty good if youre into bass, but sounds clean too. Infinity makes great stuff.

I know, just whoring out my thread for all the lazy people . You probably won't find one that fits under the seat, they Infinity 4 channel amp I am selling BARLEY fit under the seat when I was testing to see how it fit.

Thanks. I didn't pay for it so IDK lol, but I'm pretty sure they are ~$150 on eBay and the wiring kits vary in price so I'm not sure about that either. Just look for an 8awg amp install kit.

The Blaupunkt has the most power output. It should give you a nice bump.

MTX thunderlink owns all.

Next best is the Infinity basslink II, or basslink I (ive heard both of these and it was awesome!) plan to get one right away myself.

The Basslink II Ive got is just about perfect I couldn't imagine those smaller ones would be what you are looking for. I enjoy mine but id still like to have more bass.
