I am going to first try to use the stock OEM subwoofer and see what it sounds like. (I'm cheep and doesn't cost anything to try) Since it is a duel voice coil speaker (left and right channel) I will have to check what the OHM rating is before I wire it up to the monoblock amp.

If the sound is unacceptable I will look into getting a new subwoofer and box.

I also purchased a set of Infinity Reference 3032cf for the dash speakers (front sound stage). Going to disconnect the center dash speaker for better separation.

I will update when all parts arrive and I get them installed and some pictures too.

Well the Infinity Reference 3032cf speakers came today and I installed them in the dash and disconnected the center speaker. The install time was about 1/2 hour and than the listening time was 1+ hours of changing the equalizer and center balance settings.

The front stage sound is more crisp and defined. I was able to change my center fade control closer to center with the much improved sound. Disabling the center speaker removed the muddy sound that I didn't like. I can here the front door speakers now with the change of the center balance.

Infinity Reference 3032cf speakers came with a 3.3uf crossover soldiered in place and in a plastic bag came 2 100uf capacitors that I did not use. Also got the wiring adapters so the speakers were plug & play.

The JBL GTO-501EZ Amp should be here on Saturday, but will have to wait until midweek so I get some extra time to play.
