Replacing stock JBL subwoofer

I recently got an '11 TRD with the JBL audio ('09 taco was totalled by a 16 y.o. girl). I'm impressed with the audio but it needs more bass. If I replace the stock subwoofer with a decent aftermarket sub, will it be any louder? I'm only looking for more db/volume. Thanks in advance, Bill Brunsell

No. I don't think so. If you want more db/volume, you will need to upgrade the amplifier. And the sub to a model designed for your new output wattage. Just replacing the sub might make it sound better, but not louder.

Dam, that's what I thought but I was hoping I was wrong. Where is the stock sub amp located? Can I use those inputs for an aftermarket amp?

I replaced mine, sound quality improved but doesn't really increase bass much if you use your stock jbl amp. Heres what I did.

I'm not sure on an '11...
On my '13 dc, it's behind the passenger side rear seat. It's enclosed so I don't know if it utilizes standard RCA jacks or not...

Should I assume that replacing the sub in conjunction with adding a bigger ground wire from sub-ground still wouldn't make a difference in volume?
