Default 4TH Gen: Stock Alpine Subwoofer Specs

The stock Alpine subwoofer is a dual two ohm voice coil unit sized at 8" in diameter. The entire face is 8.5" and it's 4" in depth.

Two remove the subwoofer from it's box, you must remove the Torx head bolts which are sized at 25. Then, remove the two 18mm bolts holding the box into the cargo tray. Unplug the box, flip it over, and remove the phillips head bolt on the bottom of the box. Turn the box over and remove the subwoofer by disconnecting each of the wiring harnesses.

In my opinion, the plastic box is not suitable for a stronger subwoofer. It will just resonate and flex and the mounting ring is paper thin. The stock Alpine subwoofer is appropriate for this type of enclosure and any need to add more or a different style of bass response should be handled by a different amplifier and subwoofer/enclosure.

Is there a separate amplifier driving this thing? Or is it driven from the head unit? Any ideas on how we can improve this thing without replacing the speaker, or adding an amp? Just curious.

I believe there is only 1 amp for the entire system. You can get a low power amp for the factory sub and it will sound better. If you're like me you will eventually want more.

New to the site here.. wondering if someone could give me a little help. I'm looking to give my stock bass a little more kick and trying to keep it low budget. I have a 250w mono amp that I want to install to the factory sub, and i'm looking for a little guidance to completing this. Has anyone else simply added the amp in? A lot of work?

The sub if you have it is located under the back seat on the right hand side. I want to get a little more bump so I am thinking about adding a real sub/amp combo.
