Aftermarket Sub in Stock Sub Loc.

So i have the Audiophile Sub in the back in the stock "hidden" box, i was just wondering if anybody put in an aftermarket sub with an aftermarket amp, into thier stock location, of course you'd have to widen the sub hole, but has anyone done it? is the material strong enough to hold a heavier aftermarket sub? what about depth? i just wanted to ask before i actually went out to the car and started taking stuff apart to see for myself.....

thanks...

I put a fosgate punch, stage 1 in there from crutchfield. the stock one sounded much better. tighter, and alittle boomer. me and my buddy were suprised. He's got a new EVO with the best infinity system they stick in there and its no contest, the svt is way louder and much better bass. he went and picked up a alpine deck today to replace his. lol.
Also, i had to make an adapter ring to space the sub outta the box cuz the box is too shallow. acorrding to crutcfield, they dont have a sub that is shallow enuff to fit the stock box

A lot of the sound of a aftermarket sub would depend on the air-space you have in there...
I think it's a 8"sub right? There are pleanty of high quality 8" sub's on the market. ask you're local shop for ones that may work in the stocker's place...

I was going to use the audiophile box when I change my system but the sub I used required more air space than the stock box would provide. It was easier to make a new box of the right size. I've posted this in the ICE section a while ago but I will post the link to what was actually done.
