It should fit where the factory sub went. Removing the rear seat is not that bad. You just have to unhook and move the seat back to access the factory sub. Search for rear seat pulley replacement here and on YouTube.

I would not hold my breath for much output from that sub.

Has anybody tried this in the factory sub location? Do you think it will fit if I take out the old enclosure?

Thanks

Also a link for how to remove old factory sub would be great, Thanks
The easiest way to remove the Sub is to take the rear seat back off. The subs is held in place by 4 bolts on the back wall. A home made sub box seems to be the best alternative.
Search is your friend....

It will fit in the stock location with no problem. I'm not certain how much of an improvement it will be over the stock sub, though. It seems like a very small shallow driver with an even smaller internal enclosure volume. Not to mention the amplifier electronics are not only not protected from the internal pressures and vibrations created by the woofer, but are directly subjected to them. Eventually, something will be knocked loose in there. For the same amount of money, you can get the 6" powered Bazooka tube that will fit behind the rear seat on the driver's side and has been proven to be a good performer. Then again, the one you mentioned may be plenty of bass for you. You'll never know until you try it out!

I am intrigued! If you try it out - please post your thoughts....I have a birthday close to Father's Day and that device might just be the ticket!

Do you have a model number for the 6" bazooka? I saw a post on a member installing one of those, but I cant find it.

It's the BTA6100. Available pretty much anywhere that sells vehicle electronics. Amazon or Ebay will be cheapest. Crutchfield will be a certified seller (factory warranty applies) and they will provide the best customer support.
