The Cerwin Vega VPAS10 is a compact 10 inches under seat car subwoofer. It’s a powered active sub with a low-profile design and a complete enclosure that you can put anywhere in your car. It provides high sound quality with superb bass and powerful performance abilities.

The power capabilities of this woofer are impressive considering its relatively small size. It can be powered with 200 Watts RMS at 2 ohms.

It can even reach a peak power of 450 Watts, which enables it to provide a strong punchy bass that we definitely like. You can put it wherever you want and you’ll still get a loud high-quality bass.

The sub also includes several customizations and selectable adjustments to control the sound features and improve your listening experience. You get the ability to vary the bass boost, which ranges from 0 to 12 dB.

It allows you to control how deep and strong your bass is. You can also tweak the input with the adjustable input sensitivity.

The low-pass filter with 180 degrees phase has a range of 75 to 150 Hz. It’s good enough for an under-seat sub but you won’t be able to hit the low-bass sounds very well.

Extra Features and Protection

The subwoofer comes with remote control. One of the nice features it includes is the delayed turn on, which makes it start in a soft way to prevent causing any ear shock to the listeners.

The sub supports high-level inputs. It has RCA plugins and other audio inputs and outputs. It also features good bass EQ settings.

The MOSFET power supply has a thermal protection circuit and the cast aluminum body of the woofer helps with heat dissipation.

Summary

The Cerwin Vega VPAS10 is our pick for the best under seat powered subwoofer due to its compact design, its powerful deep bass, and the various adjustment settings it provides.
