    Default chevy center console sub replacement???

    I have a 2006 cerewcab with the bose center console subwoofer. I would like some more bass. has anyone replaced this with a better sub??
    I know you would have to use a differnt amp. JL audio has a replacement and box but it cost way to much. I'm thinking more or useing same box????? anyone got any ideas??

    Your crew cab offers you some options as there's enough room for you to do things behind the rear seats if you don't want to give up the under-seat location beneath the rear seats. I didn't have that option as mine's an extended cab AND as I have lockable storage under my rear seats.

    The "sub" for the bose system is like a 5" speaker (as best as I can recall) and that's it. It's pure junk and a waste of space. You'd be hard-pressed to replace it with anything larger without completely gutting the duct work under the console (which provides heat/AC to the rear portion of the cab) and building a custom box. If you were going to go that route you'd be best-served to go with JL's 10W3v3 stealth sub box as that's exactly what it's intended for.

    I have installed JL's stealth sub box. It's non-trivial. You're going to ditch all ducting to the rear of the cab if you want to use it. For a specialized box I feel it's reasonably priced, as it's made specifically to fit under the console and IS NOT just a plain-jane box with a sub in it (like people slap under their rear seats). It comes with all instructions and hardware needed to install it but you'd best be fairly good with a dremel or an air saw as milling under the center console is required.

    However, if I had a crew cab I'd be looking for shallow subs to go behind the rear seats if I didn't want to give up the under seat location .... or I'd give up the space under the rear seats to emplace two subs with the amp for them inbetween them. I wouldn't want to give up the ducting in a crew cab. It made sense in my extended cab as there's rarely anyone in the back seats and I had VERY specific requirements. You have more options and should use them.
