How big a sawzall you got? Hahaor just subs that would fit in place of stock
exactly.. i'm looking for something relatively inexpensive.. stock replacement.. and not huge, dropping a 150W peak sub into the car will make it sound completely different lol most of them i've found range from 150W peak to 250 w peakI would be all for just a stock replacement but im not playing with amps or anything. I dont even have the ambition to run a real boost gauge in this car.
Here is a picture of the stock sub it is just shy of 4 inches, unfortunately, I dont remeber the depth of the box, but it is not much more that this. Another thing to research is the ohm value of the stock sub it's not printed anyplace on the speaker. I remember reading someplace that the stock speakers where 2 ohm, if this is true for the sub also and you go to a 4 ohm sub, you will be disappointed as the output will be less. just something to think about.ok so for my list
JL Audio 8W3V3-4 (8W3V34) 8" Single 4 ohm W3v3 Car Subwoofer
this was the one that was recommended by a couple people on the boards
MB Quart RLP204 8" Dual 4 ohm Low-Profile Reference Series Subwoofer
RE Audio REX8D4 (REX-8D4) 8" Dual 4 ohm Car Subwoofer
Rockford Fosgate P2D2-8 (P2D28) 8" Punch P2 2-Ohm DVC Subwoofer (this might be cutting it close idk the depth of the stock sub just going bassed off the lj is 4 9/16" it says it needs a very small box but CAN't be used for shallow mount so idk
Rockford Fosgate P3SD2-8 (p3sd28) 8" Dual 2-Ohm Punch Series Shallow Mount Car Subwoofer little more expensive but should definitely fit
JBL GTO804 (GTO-804) 8" Grand Touring Single 4 ohm Car Subwoofer (pushing higher rms, which might start being too much for stock amp)
Pioneer TS-SW841D (TSSW841D) 8" Single 4 ohm Shallow-Mount Sub
sorry I said peak before but ment RMS .. you cant really get many subs that low peak
I wasn't planning on adding an ampare you going to add an amp? if so be aware of 2 things ... the CU of the plastic enclosure is very small altho ---you could customize it and add an aero tuned -port to make more bass. The down side to doing all this is that the side of your car will vibrate terribly and make alot of buzzing. you will not be able to stop this easily.
well thats fantastic news lolThe stock one appears to be a duel voice coil.
eggscellent.. so I might try out the pioneer sub... and mount it in stock place.. that should give enough bump fo rmeits dvc the right and left rear panel speakers branch into it one per coil. I guess this is their version of bridged lol.

people have installed the jbl one I originally listed and said it made a great help. why do you think you can't max the stock one out?I wanna say it will help , but it might actually hurt the bass, because you cant max the stock one out at full volume, which means there isnt enuff power to overdrive it. Therefore if you swap in a "better higher watt rated one" it is more likely that the stiffer suspension on it would require more power to move it and thus less bass output. I will say that it would make the bass crisper, but less loud unless you power it with an add-on amplifier. even a crappy $30. 50watt amp would be enough, or a powered crossover/linedriver. You could always add that later if you feel you need it.

the consensus is basically upgreade stock sub or stock speakers on factory amp but not both or it won't work well
