Do you know what you're talking about? You think you're going to just put a JL sub in the factory box? It will not work well - the result will probably be worse than the factory sub.Cool. I'll replace the factory with a JL, slap a 500 WATT amp under the seat maybe? All set.
Besides the bad sound, there is no way you will get a jl sub in the factory box. They are all too deep. I found out a company who specializes in boxes for earthquake shallow mount subs is going to be making a box for behind the seat. Hopefully it will be a 10"hofffam said:Do you know what you're talking about? You think you're going to just put a JL sub in the factory box?

Actually I have one that I have taken apart and you can replace it, but would not be worth it is bottom mount which makes it even more difficult to replace. The speaker itself also has an odd shaped mounting frame and the box has some alignment pins that would need to be removed. I was thinking or replacing and then fiberglassing the box, but not worth it. Easier and better to build my own. Now I just need to decide on a speaker and get some specs.bongus said:The factory sub is all one piece there is no way to add something to it without destroying the box. My last inspection of the box revealed no screws around it and it appeared to be sealed. So the only way to go is to make a custom box or find something that fits.
I am impressed. I looked at dimensions and didn't think it would work. Well done. Did you bottom mount it? Or top? there is enough room for top behind the seatRidgey06 said:I know this sounds stupid but i got a JL W3 8 inch sub to fit in my stock sub box. I know the sound isn't as good as a wood box but i sealed it pretty well and i sealed the factory port. I've been slackin about takin pictures and i might do it. this weekend.
