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.

Kipp 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.

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.

ViperThreat 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.

freemind You can put some 10's in the stock box let alone 8's. Crutchfield is full of shis.

StephenElsbree1986 Ty for moving it I guess I didn't look hard enough for the audio selection

BigRed03 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.

Sorry I tend to do that, just looking to get a new sub. I'd like to know if I need a new AMP to power an after market base or if I can just replace any 8" in the stock location. They said I could not because 8" are to deep for the stock location.
