Re: 2012 SRT8 Factory Sub Replacement

I used the old one. I will probably have boxes built into both quarters when I get back to the states for two 12s and 1000 to 1500 watts rms or so. For now it sounds pretty good though.

Re: 2012 SRT8 Factory Sub Replacement

Sounds like a plan. I was thinking eventually replacing all speakers and only running a LOC to a rear sub amp and a custom sub enclosure. Nothin crazy like 1000 watts though. I'm more into SQ than SPL so something about half the size should work.

You should check out that Soundman series on YouTube where they do a 2013 Jeep SRT. good for some ideas at least. They even revisit and run Ipad.

Re: 2012 SRT8 Factory Sub Replacement

Already subscribed to soundman. If I was going to do things like you are saying, I would replace the head unit (I probably will as uconnect is not too much different from the Bluetooth systems in most head-units now.

They have a PAC rp4-ch11 for radio and steering-wheel controls, and chyrvd for rear DVD integration and backup camera.

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.
