Change out the factory head unit to something with an EQ and Staging it makes a huge
difference.
I am running stock speakers with a Pioneer AVIC-D3 with the built in crossover and
high pass filter it sounds great.

The JL Audio 8W1v2-4 8" subwoofer is low-profile and it fits with no problems.
Do you think a 8" W7 would be too large to try and place in the factory box?

This is true, if you have a good headunit you might like your subwoofer/speaker system a lot better.

Would this work without an external amp and just pop out the old and in with the new. I don't care for super wattage and crazy thump, just want a little better than stock. Thnx
Not recommended. Just save your money because you will be disappointed. The built-in amplifier will not be able to drive the JL Audio subwoofer.

If you swap out the sub in the factory box, you have to make sure the sub is designed for a ported enclosure and will perform properly with the volume of the factory sub box, in addition to making sure the mounting depth is right.

I'm not really audio savvy, can someone explain the difference between the 4 ohm and 8 ohm JL Audio 8W1V2? Thanks.

This link is good reference about:

Ohms, Amps and Speakers
Thanks! :bigthumb:

Edit: Does anyone know how many watts the stock subwoofer puts out? I'm trying to decided if the JL 8W1V2 4 ohm will be enough or if I should save up and go with a forum vendor box w/10" sub. Thanks in advance!
