    Subwoofer replacement

    After attempting reglueing the blown factory subwoofer in my 2001 Deville, I finally found a suitabe replacement. RE Audio makes a dual 2 ohm, free air sub called the SRX10D2. I found it on Ebay for $84 shipped. It is rated 300 watts rms. It measure slightly smaller and much taller and heavier than the factory sub. The holes for mounting were at a slightly smaller radius than the original. I was planning on making an adapter plate, but after I got the car apart I realized all I need to do was enlarge the 4 mounting holes on the sub using tin snips. These new mounting slots will be covered up by the heavy rubber mounting trim supplied with the sub. The original fasteners were a little tricky to get in but they appear to be holding the sub down rather well. The bottom just fits thru the carpet trim piece under the rear deck. Time will tell. But, the sub does sound really good. Whenever the weather gets nicer I'll try a side by side comparison with my wife's 02 Deville. Looks to be built rather well, hopefully it will hold up with me blasting the bass like I do.

    Does this belong in "Audio, Video, Security" ?

    Re: Subwoofer replacement

    My subwoofer sounded horrible. When I took it out, I found it torn cleanly all the way around it's circumference. I decided to just lay a big old bead of silicone caulk all the way around the cone and let it cure for a few hours before reinstalling. Sounds much better now, and I didn't have to spend anything but time on it.
    It was difficult to remove, there is an adhesive strip around it, and I had to push it out really hard with my knee while laying in the trunk on my back. Plus you've got to remove the rear seat to access it, so it is a lot of work.
