Yes you can replace the sub, but if the subs nominal power is 250 watts (as is this pioneer)... then its not healthy for the amp to only power it with 50 watts (which is what the factory amp does). It may sound slightly better, but you risk speaker damage over long usage. It will sound much better when it is amplified with 250+ watts. Sorry, I know this was specificly directed to you umbertobmacattack23 said:Umbertob,
You could just simply replace the sub if you wanted to right? I might be confused this is getting to technical for me.
Is the last picture of the factory sub or is it the pioneer?
Yes you could, but as mentioned above the improvement would likely be minimal considering the feeble wattage currently supplied by the factory amp to the stock sub. You really need to juice up that sub line to get the full benefit of a better speaker. You can always get the parts and bring them to your nearest car stereo shop for installation. It's probably child's play for them.macattack23 said:Umbertob,

Welcome Mason. Looks like you may have it done before meMasonSensation said:you're an absolute gem ryan! hope i haven't jumped the gun as i see there hasn't been an update over the past few days! no problems right?!
i am not so daring as to attempt the mod myself but i did manage to find a local car audio store today that will do the whole job (amp/sub/loc/labor/misc) for $398. it will be finished wed so i'll let everyone know how much of an improvement it is within the next few days.
on a quick note...i'm a new owner myself and just wanted to point out this forum has been an absolutely brilliant resource concerning the "do's and don'ts" ! excellent stuff, keep it up gents!
Speaking of gutting... they aren't going to know how to get that tailgateMasonSensation said:thanks for the welcome lads! always get them to commit to the price before they start gutting anything out!
Is the "loc" the audiocontrol? That's a real cheap price. I would makepioneer tw-sw2541d $135
amp kit & loc (misc) $56.95
