 Boss Audio

Does anyone know if the Boss bass1500 powered subwoofer is a good sub and amp combo for the price or is there something better, but similar size? What does it sound like? Just looking for a good review before I make up my mind.

I have no personal experience with that unit, but I do have some insight.
As you may or may not know, Boss is one of the much maligned low budget brands. They consistently advertise power ratings that are nothing more than bald face lies. That particular unit claims 900w rms, but uses a single 25A fuse (one is a spare). It likely doesn't produce more than 250w rms.

Also - if you do a quick enclosure volume calculation you'll find the internal volume to be around 0.3 cubic feet which tells me the low frequency extension will be next to nothing.

Personally, I could only consider purchasing something like that for experimentation purposes -- to see just how bad it is. I can't imagine its use as a subwoofer to be worth messing with.

If your looking to save space, a shallow mount sub would be your best bet.

I can't comment on their subs but I had a Boss 1200D amp once that was a great value for the $110 I paid....you'll hear a lot of people talk shit about Boss, but they're better than some similarly priced crap brands Legacy, Pyle, Lanzar, etc....and Boss/Sounstream are basically the same company...just a decent value if you don't have real high expectations all I got to say.
