Tang Band W69-1042J 6"x9" Subwoofer is rated 4.1923 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIT HARD!I have 2 of these in a infinite baffle configuration paralleled together and bridged mono to a car amp.WOW, these get low and hit hard. Very satisfied and would highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good woofer, but not really a sub.I purchased this more to test it out, and after just a few hours, I find that it a fine woofer, but does not deserve sub-woofer ratings. I will say that the bass it produced in a larger cabinet(.75) was decent, and in narrow applications works great as a woofer, but not as a sub. My recommendations are on it being a decent woofer, but to costly for its limited performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price, nothing is better!I had purchased a set of these tang band 6x9 speakers to roll in the rear of my deck in my 2005 Dodge neon. I have them powered by a 300watt rms amplifier that used to power my 12 inch sub. Putting them in was a pain in the rear end like most people would attest to, but I made it happen with minimal effort. And it looks custom! Before I get to the sound, mind you I have infinity kappa 6.5 components in the front powered by a separate 2 channel am at 75watt rms per channel and it did it's job to fill in the sound overall, but those lacked some serious mids and bass. So I then added a 12 inch Polk audio sub with amp listed above. It did an awesome job until my new line of work demanded that my trunk space was needed, so here I am with my new tang bands. Hot dog, these hit as hard as my sub! After properly tuning the gains, it hits well! Good low rumble and fantastic sounding mids. They complement my setup very well. To those on the ropes about these speakers, get them. For what they are worth, it's one of the best speaker purchases I have ever made. I had infinity primo 6x9 in the back and at 2x the price, they had nothing on the tang bands! A+

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea for car audio but not home.The construction of these subs is solid and having owned many Tang Band subs I expected nothing less. I used them in a slim tower design with 2 run in parallel ~ 4ohm powered by a 300w plate amp on each tower. The Subs are facing forward in a rear ported configuration. I noticed they make a considerable amount of cone noise at high volumes! For the past few weeks I have been playing with configuration, port length, and even covering the port entirely in attempts to eliminate the noise; plus confirm where it was actually coming from. Finally I got fed up and hacked up an older 6inch sealed sub box to test a single woofer. In the new box the woofer still made the same noise which confirmed it is cone noise. I think when used in the rear deck of a car the noise would be masked by the resonance of the interior and road noise. Unfortunately for me the cone noise is very pronounced with the woofers facing towards the listening area in a home setting. I am not happy with these at all and since I have obviously mounted and used them I can’t return them! I had reservations about using an oval shaped sub for just this reason but I thought using a respected brand with a paper cone this wouldn’t be a problem. If you’re considering these for an auto sub you will probably be satisfied, but for home use pass on these and look at Tang Bands other round subs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality SpeakersReplaced my recently purchased CDT 0690 GOLDs with these after the CDTs didn't perform. These required a little modding of the back deck of my car but they are in solid and sound amazing. The installer had never heard of them and the entire shop was amazed and wanted to custom build boxes to see how they perform. I have them being pushed by a RF PBR300X2 which probably means I am putting 60-70 watts to them. I have them LPF crossed at 180Hz. Don't waste your money on others, this is a good purchase for the money. The black stuff surrounding the speakers is dynamat which was used to give it a good housing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too EarlyThese speakers have great specs but, as they were received, they don't come close to meeting these specs. I won't know how to judge them until I break then in and are stable and put them into service. It may take some time - if ever.

Could these be placed under car front seats? If not can you recommend a set up?

Asked by: caraudionewb
Yes these could be used in that application depending on the amount of space you have available under the seat. We also have some low profile woofers available that may work better for the application.
