Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

they're not junk
they're just not your typical aftermarket amp.

i have one in my impreza
lots of bass... and it's all under your bum smile
fits right under the seat, nobody knows it's there.

sorry, I stand corrected  smile  if you want more bass with little/no modification to your stock system, then this is a good bet on doing it...

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

Does anyone know how easy it is to install? Are the pigtails already under the seat to plug the unit in?

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

hey Jamie, my problem with the 9-2x with my aftermarket headunit that the door shakes due to the additional bass...will the sub take away all bass from the speakers (as most normal channeled subs do) or will it just add to it? any shaking issues? also, will it fit under both seats?

these subs are supposedly made for the passenger seat, so I'm not sure if it's configurable. 

as for the bass, I'm pretty sure it adds to the base unless there is a built in crossover unit on head unit to tell what frequencies go to the speakers and what frequencies go to the dedicated sub

if you have an aftermarket head unit hopefully it has RCA outputs for a one or two amp setup and then you can use the amps to power the speakers and use a second amp to power a sub - there's a thread on here somewhere about a custom sub enclosure someone made for the wrx that is supposedly really good but I think it's about $500-600

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

What does the plug look like for this stock sub.  Would it plug into an aftermarket headunit or is it a specific connection made just for the stock 6disc changer.  Also is it a direct plug and play or will i have to wire it to various things like the battery and ground it and all that.

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

just do this.

it will more than end your need for bass. at least for me.

the oem ones arent junk but when compared to better aftermarket subs they are pretty much worthless.

Re: Under seat Subaru SubWoofer / Amplifier.

Well i already have the OEM one that i took out of my wrx thats why im asking.  Im glad i looked at your thread though hindu cause that is a good idea that you did with your net i didnt think about that might give it a try.  I might even buy another net for the ultimate storage setup 92x
