Re: 2012 SRT8 Factory Sub Replacement
Gnasty, just finished doing the same this weekend. Thanks for the tips. I replaced the broken panel yellow clips with some universal ones from a local auto store.
I wrapped mine in 12 sqft of 80 mil FatMat Rattle Trap off ebay for $70 and only put about half of the polyfil you did. Wrapping it is a lot harder than it looks. Took me about 3 hours but I am a bit OCD and cut the fatmat all nice like with pair of heavy duty scissors. It's actually easier to cut with a Stanley Utility knife as you can just throw the blade away instead of cleaning the scissors with turps ever five mins. Plus your hands will appreciate it. My thumbs are still numb from using scissors
Have to say that it does sound better and has more punch. I was a bit pissed off with the size of the speaker wire from the amp however it's CCA (copper coated aluminum) so it's smaller, lighter and less expensive than the copper equivalent. I now question how many watts that 900 watt amp is though and how much goes to the sub. I'm thinking its more like 400 peak and have to wonder how much is allocated to the 2 x 6x9s and the 10" sub as it doesn't exactly meet the 40/60 rule of amps. I'm going to get used to it but am thinking of replacing the 'sub' with a shallow one. The one that came with it couldn't have cost more than $20.
The more we learn, the less we know about.
Anyway, great job GNasty. Thanks for putting in the hard yards on this for us.
