recently installed 2 10" jl audio 3w3 subs, replacing the bose factory sub.
added a kicker 750.1 mono amp, stinger 1 farad cap, and bassworks sealed box. sounds real nice and more than enough bass for my taste, definitely better than the so called bose sub.
i dynamatted the trunk, removed the stock sub an matted the rear deck, big improvment in bass and rattles.
i found another use for my rear strut brace, strapped the sub box to it, that sucker ain't going anywhere. nice to have the option to still easliy remove the box. not sure if i will ever do a custom trunk box seeing as i have fold down seats and still wouldn't mind carrying a spare tire.
i went with dual 10s instead of dual 12s to save space and reduce weight, pretty happy with my choice. its enogh bass to give me a headache, and not be able to see out my rear view mirror
Automobile(s): They should make a new model name for mine but I guess a CTS
Re: New audio addition(thump in the trunk)
the only way to have control over the bass is to either put it in from the sub with a bass knob on the amp or do it from the front and connect the bass control wire to the one up front at the head unit
