Yes, you can go that route and stiffen the oem sub box. The are a number of fantastic 8 inch sub woofers out their.
Just a few problems I can see. For the good woofers from Alpine and JL Audio as an example, the box is not tuned right. The DSP from factory amp does a tremendous injustice in the frequency setup. The power is lacking and still lacking. The cheaper 8 inch drivers will sound the same as you had before.
It is cheaper for me to go with the overpriced JL Audio Stealth box, then going with a custom enclosure. Aa a matter in fact, I was planning dual thin 8 inch sub one for each side. The cost was not worth it. It is too bad that I missed out on the Boston Acoustics top of line sub.
This just my opinion.
Best for now.
