|freemind||subthump makes a good box for our cars. Plus, he can increase the displacement of the box and make it for a 12" sub too.|

the stock headunit puts out about 10w per channel to the speakers and the sub amp is between 20 and 30w if i remember right. might be higher than that, but not by much.
if you're wanting a new sub then you'll need to get a new amp as well. the stock one isn't designed to do more than what it has. you can use the box, but wouldn't only recommend that with a lower power aftermarket setup and would be a good idea to put some dynamat on/in it.

I have a Rockford Fosgate 8" in my sub enclosure

crutch-field is full of shit and alway over priced, buy an aftermarket head unit, an amp wiring kit, aftermarket amp and a shallow 8 inch sub, i have a pioneer shallow 8 and a rockford r 125-2 fits in the factory location and the amp is small enough to mount in the stock location on the box. Mind you my set up isnt going to rattle the windows of houses going down the block but it sure kicks the stock set-ups ass.

My honest reccomendation:
1. Keep it stock, or find a OE replacement for the sub if its broken.
2. Replace the box, amp, and sub.
I say this because the box doesnt do well with larger/stronger subs and amps. if you are going to upgrade, you need to do all 3 at once.
Also, I recommend upgrading your headunit before any of this, that will give you the best boost in sound quality.

an new head unit (decent one) wired in correctly will greatly enhance the sound of the stock speaker set up. This is what ive done and it booms pretty well.
Yes, if you want an after market sub, you will need an aftermarket amp.
