    Does anyone on here have aftermarket subwoofers installed?

    I'm a big bass head and audiophile. Just got my MS and one of my first ad ons will be an audio upgrade. I'm looking forward to some subs in this. HOwever i want something bigger than the NVX i see so many talking about. Anyone here have a good subwoofer set up? How does it affect range, battery etc? I'd love to see some pics :))

    Check out Reus in Orange County, CA for the best in sound for a Tesla.

    I added dual 8" JL Audio subs to my standard sound. Turned out great. The box is really small plus the amp is built in.

    Yep...
    Had standard sound on 2017 Model X.
    I had a 10” underseat active sub put under the front passenger seat.
    (Rainbow intellisub 10 afe)
    It cost me 350 euro incl. installation by car audio shop and it makes all the difference !
    I have a remote bass control in my center console and if i turn it up too much it does get distorted. But if you are looking for clarity instead of loud bass this is more than enough. It sounds so much better that before.

    The clarity of the stock MX set is pretty good, but it definately is missing some base.
    Especially when playing jazz or artists like sting etc. I really enjoy the warmer and fuller sound now.

    Obviously not as good as a full 3k sound upgrade, but good enough for me and worth every penny.

    I have a few spare Focal BUS20's that I was going to get fitted but haven't got round to yet.

    I’d love to have whatever the Model 3 has. It is insane (in a good way).

    Couple folks with UHFS have dropped an 8 inch soundqubed sub into the stock sub box and upgraded with a light harmonic amp.
