Car audio guys, think this is worth a shit?

Think this thing would hit pretty good, by itself? Paired with an appropriate amp, of course.

I have heard that these can be compared to a typical 12" sub, due to the increased surface area. I have to have something this small, due to space constraints. And really, I'm not one for sheer overwhelming amount of bass like some of the turds you see driving around. So I am thinking just one subwoofer. Right now all I have is my components installed, and it's painfully clear that it lacks the proper amount of bass. The reason I have to use something so small is that it will be going behind the seat, in an older single cab truck that I am restoring. But, I do want to enjoy some bass. Thoughts? Opinions?

Those were the shit when then first came out. Still good choice. I personally prefer Memphis audio products. They make shallow mount subs that fit in shallow boxes for trucks.

Sig check. If you have the room for it, it will put that to shame.

Cool. Thanks for all the replies. But er, yall did see that the setup that I am asking about is only a 10", right? That is the only thing that makes me shy away from buying it. If it were a 12", I would scoop it up real quick. Although, I have heard that an L7 10" is comparable to a lot of the good 12" subs out there. That's why I was asking.

Those 10" square subs have roughly the same surface area of a round 12". The square 12" is getting closer to the surface area of a round 15".
