This Car Audio Amplifier to run an older 8 inch pioneer sub in a bandpass box . This delivers as expected. Subwoofer sounds perfect. I tried to run it off the stock deck using the high pass but it wouldn't turn on. I took a jumper wire and touched the remote to the positive and it fired up immediately. Don't expect any help from Boss via their phone number on the box. I waited for 20 minutes before I just decided to hang up and just pick up a new deck. It sounds great.
That this amp would not do a good job pushing a subwoofer is that it only has a "Subwoofer level control". This is not to be mistaken for a crossover/low pass filter. You need some form of crossover to keep it from sending high frequencies to the speaker.
