    I have a qustion for you guys. I'm really just a noob when it comes to audio. I've seen the sub upgrade of using the NVX sub and amp. THe current sub in the UHF system is 8" why not create an enclosure for a 10" sub and use the same hookups. So long as you get a sub that has the same watts and ohms? Is this feasable?

    Where does UHF put the sub in the car? I don't have UHF, so I'm just curious, wondering if speaker / power wires are there in my car if I want to do this kind of thing later.

    if you get a sub with the same ohm and watt rating, then you should be fine then the stock amp should be able to push it. Not sure if you can reuse the stock enclosure for a 10 in sub and would imagine that doing so wouldn't make much of a sound quality/loudness difference. No expert either, but I would imagine that the stock amplifier is pretty low powered, so the 10" sub would also have to be pretty weak. In my opinion, upgrading the sub to a better 8 inch sub and adding a better amplifier would probably yield better results.

    Does anyone know the specs to the rear sub. Ohms, watts?
