Default Subwoofer in stock box

So the owner of a local Audio store is retiring and he's having a giant store closing sale. My question is has anyone swapped out there stock sub for a aftermarket using the same box and etc... Did it really make a difference running the stock wiring and radio(limited tuning options)? They deal in alpine, Sony, powerbass, focal and re. I had alpine type r's in my old truck along with new speakers and miss it.

Also is the amp good enough to keep up? I've read some mixed reviews on here for quality.

I upgraded to a Pioneer sub that was recommended in a thread here. There was absolutely no difference. I am convinced that to get better bass we need to add an amp.

I agree. Add an amp. But if your dead set on replacement my thread may be helpful.

I bet the sub (if Alpine factory 8") is a 1 ohm sub, so the amp see's 2 ohm. Not enough power for a much larger setup.
