Factory sub hook-up

I located the plug behind the passenger back seat but the connector is a 6 head "male" piece and the plug into the actual factory sub box is a 10 head female piece. Do they make an adapter piece to link the two? I figured the two ends should have lined up perfect. Anyone ever delt with this before?

Do you have the audiophile package? I know there is an extra connector to the back of the radio if you do.

If you don't want major bass why not just stuff an 8" or 10" back there? It'll sound and perform better than the stocker.

Cause the stock housing/amp/sub is CHEAP and comes as an assembly, and it fits perfect.

I did some looking around awhile back on this, and it showed two different body harnesses for with/without subwoofer.

Ah I see. Can you use the stock enclosure and put an aftermarket sub in there?

I don't see why not. Never really looked into taking one apart.

The stock enclosure is pretty small and not very deep (not to mention, plastic), the JL sub I looked at wanted about 1/2 cu ft box (Ideally). I wouldn't imagine it would be worth it to put a better speaker into it. I left the stock sub and upgraded all 4 speakers to JL's and it sounds much better. If your going to go to the work and expense of putting a good sub in you might as well upgrade the box, and if your going to do that you might as well upgrade the AMP, they you have to redo the wiring..... As Im not an audiophile its just not worth it to put a new amp/box/sub/wiring into it.
FYI i think the stock sub is 8".

I got a factory sub off Ebay for $60. Thought I would try it first. If it doesn't give me the sound I want then I will sell it and go bigger. I am not looking for "big" bass I just want to get those lower freq in there so when I replace my other factory speakers I can cap them and still have the sub frequencies present. So I just want over all sound quality but with out going through the trouble and expense of an all out custom set up.
