Huge difference. The amp has a remote bass gain, and I keep it about 1/2 way. The bass on the HU EQ is set at 0. Even at 1/2, I can vibrate the mirrors, on songs with a lot of base. On my iPod, I have set the EQ to none. I can feel the music. I can also break my ear drums if I'm not careful.

There was plenty of room for the sub: mounting depth of the sub is 4.125". Amp is in the spare tire well with my full size spare.
