We offer the Earthquake SWS-8, Plug & Play subwoofer. It can be powered with an after market Amplifier, or with your OEM amplifier.

Increases the quality of the bass and fit's right where OEM is. Very inexpensive too!

Good luck with your choice!

For clarification, the SWS-8 is NOT plug-and-play.

1. You have to cut off the OEM speaker connector and solder the wires to the SWS's terminals (or use crimp-on terminal connectors).

2. The bottom of the subwoofer enclosure requires modification and there is a spacer required on the baffle in order for the SWS-8 to fit.

Also, there is NO improvement in bass response when the SWS is installed with the factory amplifier. It may actually be a bit less since the SWS is likely much less efficient than the OEM woofers.

That's not correct, there's no SWS-8 compatible with the Enhanced Premium System. The OEM amp will overheat in the short, and fail in the long term.

Get you facts straight or you are going to blow a lot of OEM amps...
