I just want to add a single 10" sub to the Alpine 9 speaker system and keep the Alpine OEM sub. Want to install the 10" sub on the drivers side under the rear seat.

(1) The JBL GTO-501EZ amp (350-500 watts RMS) looks like a good mono amp to run a single sub?

(2) What would be a good 10" sub $0-$150 range for this install?

(3) Can I tap off the lead wires going to the Alpine sub (8.4an head) to get the signal to the JBL amp?

(4) What are the OEM wire color codes at the Alpine sub so I can tap into them to add RCA plugs?

Have I got my information right or should I go with a different setup to add more base? Would like to spend under $500 for all parts. I will be doing the installation myself.


Thanks, Greg

Would I be better off using the JBL GTO-501EZ amp to power a different 8" or 10" sub in the OEM sub box?

It seams that there is very little sound coming from the Alpine sub. Anyone done this? I need some ideas.

Greg
