The rockford powered subs are sealed, which provides a much tighter, cleaner bass than a ported box. Something to keep in mind.
The LC7i is 7.5”W x 4.72”D x 1.22”H. I could manage to jam it in there, but there was not enough room left over for the wires to run to it in a professional looking manner. The Depth is what you have to watch, and where the wires connect. The power pack appears much narrower in depth, so that may fit just fine. There is some space behind the head unit....you can pop the center speaker cover and take a peak from outside the windshield or with an inspection mirror, and it may fit there, but thats probably about it.
I originally went with an inexpensive PAC LOC to get signal to my kenwood amp for the door and dash speakers, but it wouldn't work. I'm not sure exactly what the problem was, but once swapped for the LC7i, all was good.
I was going to just get the LC6i (i had no desire for the additional "accubass" functionality) but according to AudioControl specs., the LC7i was a bit smaller in size and I knew mounting space was at a premium where I planned to locate it.
The system sounds very good, but how much of that i can accredit to the LC7i or not, i do not know, as I installed it all at the same time.
I put JBL GTO 629 in all 4 doors, and JBL GTO 19t in the dash. I have used polk in the past, and while ok, I blew one out with a low power head unit so I have avoided them for car audio ever since.
