It depends what you are expecting or used to. Since you have a 10" now... and assuming it has any room to breathe at all... it probably sounds better than the BSW 8". I enjoy the BSW setup but it doesn't hold a candle to the sub setups I have done in the past using 10" or 12" subs. It fills in the mid-range nicely... and hits some of the lows. Down to maybe ~60hz.

In the end I would like to replace it with a 10" sub when I have time to do a custom fiberglass enclosure that fits where the BSW setup does so as to not lose cargo space. I enjoy having the cargo space and haven't come up with a different place to go with it so as to not lose space. I have done some interesting stuff in the past to keep cargo space while still adding a sub... maybe when I have more time I'll try something like that with the X.
