Greetings and welcome,

If you can give us an update on your systems current status will be helpful including all the mods you made.

With regards to the Stealthbox setup you propose, it will for sure give you the lows you are looking for. In terms of sound quality, it depends again on how you perceive sound. If you are running off the Alpine Factory System, their is a chance you might feel the bass gets lost in the cargo area and does not match the front stage. This is a direct result of the pre determined settings in the DSP. By playing the sub louder to compensate might give you the trash problem you mentioned.

In any event the Stealthbox is far better than the factory sub or trying to modify it.

Best for now.

I haven't done anything to the setup yet - it's the base system (not Alpine). I guess now I'm trying to decide between Stealthbox and an amp they recommend to go along with it or just replacing the speakers for improved quality and loudness.

Greetings,

I would start with front door speakers first. Sometimes a simple swap is all it needs. Look for high efficiency speaker with a sensitivity reading of 90 db or more. If you want to proceed with rear door speakers, I suggest a coaxial speaker.

It terms of speakers, there are plenty out their to choice from. The key is to find a tweeter that meets your music demand.

Best for now.

I like keeping things the same so I'd probably stick with JL for everything. Unless there's a good reason why I shouldn't.
