It's somewhat ironic that Kicker would be a signicant improvement over "Alpine". In the pure aftermarket world, they are about equal (or Alpine slightly better in some cases). I think the OE system should be labeled Boss, Dual, or Sparkomatic, because that's what it sounds like.
The Alpine is an 8" sub, low powered and tuned high, while the Kicker is a 200 w 10" sub, significant increase in lowend.
