Default Powered SubW AlpineSWE1000 or Blaupunkt THB200A

Hi guys,
I am new to the fourm.
I have a Safari LX. I have already installed :
Pioneer 4190SD,
Front Doors : JBL GTO 608s component speakers
Rear Doors : JBL 6" Coaxials

The system sounds good, but lack a bit of punch. I donot like a big box in my rear so want to settle for a powered sub like the Alpine SWE 1000 or the Blaupunkt THB 200A.... Need help to decide.

I am also thinking whether a sub with a shallow installation can fit in the rear door??

Not sure if those small powered subs will create an impact, but definitely they would be better than nothing. One would be better off shoe-horning them under the front passenger seat.

The rear (tailgate) door has an opening (nearer to the hinge side; you need to remove the door-pad to spot it) which can accommodate an 8" sub. This can be a 10"er with suitable adaptation with MDF. One anyhow has to throw away the stock 'cardboard' door pad. This won't be a sealed enclosure, but more an infinite baffle - likely to make the thump a bit boomy.

@Guru, do consider an enclosure for the sub. A sealed encolsure for an 8" sub will not take much space.
( A ported enclosure will need to be bigger ).

I am using a small RF Punch sub in my Victa, placed under the rear jump seat. The enclosure I have is actually bigger than the minimum size.

But yes, even a small sub can make a difference, and is definitely needed for trucks like ours.
