    i have the stock jbl system, has anyone torn their stock "jbl" sub out of the storage behind the back seat, and replaced it with a quality sub and amp? if so, what did you use and how did you do it, pics would be great if you even have pics of afterwards...

    thanks

    I had an "upgraded" factory system in my 2010 AC. Mine wasn't the JBL but it had the sub enclosure on the back wall between the jump seats. The sub is actually closer to a 6x9. The interesting part is that if you don't have the JBL system, the sub is actually self powered. I stumbled on this when I took my head unit out.

    My factory sub works just fine with my aftermarket system. The only catch is you can't turn the HPF on. My best guess is that the sub senses that frequency, but I'm no audio expert and someone that has this type of knowledge may want to chime in here.

    that factory sub is a POS!!! i pulled mine out a few weeks and it is crap!!!

    if you are going to replace something that would be a good place to start but I bet you will want to do the door speakers too because they are crap. I should have taken a picture of the speakers they pulled out. The rear 6 1/2s are more like 4" and the 6x9s and tweeter int he front are made out of paper which is normal for factory speakers anyways.

    the sub is basically plastic and the box is plastic too. Get rid of it when you can. Mr Marv makes some really nice boxes to fit behind the seats or if you want to spend some big bucks check out JL audio stealth boxes....
