That's what I'm hoping for. I'd like to just take the stock unit out and drop in an 8" shallow mount JLAudio unit or something similar.
From what I can gather, the problem with that will be whether or not the stock amp is powerful enough to properly drive the new sub. I suspect it isn't based on what the info I've been able to find.
The MicroSub and a seperate dedicated mono amp like Lightning546 suggested is the best way to go from what I can tell, but the other option I've looked at is to simply replace the stock sub with a small sealed and powered unit. That would be much simpler and cheaper, easier to properly setup/tune, and probably suit my needs just fine.
I'm hoping to maybe have a look at it this weekend if the weather cooperates, but taking out two car seats and the entire rear seat is big job just take to a look.
If the factory head unit had a seperate subwoofer gain control the system would sound better. I had the audiophile system and a kenwood headunit in my 6.4 and having the ability to adjust the sub without exceeding the cheep door speakers limitations make a large difference.
