Re: factory sub to an aftermarket HU's rear speaker outputs?

Bridging the Alpine rear channels and tapping in the sub harnesses is free and done when the dash is removed. The plastic panels on the bottom of the back seat just unsnap easy if the sub connection needs to be checked or reconnected.


Adding a new sub and amp will cost nearly or over $300.00 a bazooka, $130.00. And don't forget a good wiring kit, easy extra $50.00 plus the little supplies to do the install that can add up.

If I made a box to go behind the seat I would go with the Pioneer, it's more efficient and the box would need to be 1 inch taller to fit the pioneer sub.

Yeah, that! I could remember what the thing was call. Too much psychology from class for me to remember so I ran outa space. I didn't think that the cost difference wasn't that much, honestly. Apparently I under estimated the bazooka tube's cost effectiveness.

My box isn't 1 inch taller, but it was pretty tight getting the my sub to line up right. It goes from the very bottom to the very top of the box.

Complete;
Sony XAV601BT, Polk DB coaxial/sail tweets, Dynamat, V-LED Ext./Int./Dash, GE NightHawk Platinum, Plastidiped Steels/Grill, Duralast Platinum AGM, OEM Tow Harness/Rear Mud Guards, Weathertech F&R Mats/Visors/Bug Shield.

I thought it was called the Tang Bang, but I guess it can be called The Tang Band? We just need someone to call it the Big Bang or the Bang Tan

Hahaha! Just for reference, here's a link to it:

Astronaut drink + collection of music artists = Tang Band!

I should have checked that link before I posted, I guess some names are very confusing or they simply change them with time.

Well, now that we've thoroughly tainted this thread, Imho4ep, have you given some thought to what you plan to do?
