The stock sub is junk, 2 junk subs will still be junk. Any reason you don't want to just go with something in the trunk? If it's a space thing, you could get a Bazooka tube or something like that.

has any one actually swaped out the crappy speaker but kept the box and use, o i dont know say a JL sub in there. im really curious because i thought of buying the box to make it work.
its not a 8" sub in there its a tiny (cant remember the size) "sub". Wouldnt be deep enough either. Youde also need an external amp so that totally gets rid of the point. You could try a custom setup with maybe 2 6.5" woofers, 1 under each seat. that might be an idea

regardless of how big or 'powerful' that stock sub is, it WILL sound like junk (even
if it sound[ed] goods to you now) because now you are throwing the ammount of power
from your stock head unit (which I believe is 24 watts max per channel so prob a 15RMS)
that it produces to power 4 speakers and 1 sub into 4 speakers and 2 subs which will
also cut down on the power of your regular speakers. Basically it will either be the same but
most likely worse since it's all being amplified by one source and now being devided by 5.

:drunk:

take out the rear side panels (if its a two door) and install a box with a shallow 8 or 10 on both sides, there is plenty of room for the correct airspace. Then install a small class d 300 watt amp under the passenger seat.
