I was thinking of upgrading my system in my 2008 Subaru WRX - The actual speakers and head unit are fairly loud, and sound fine, but im wondering if its a waste to spend $500 to throw a sub and an amp into my stock system.
Is this setup just going to overpower the speakers as they currently are? While I don't want them to be overpowered, I also want it to pound when I am in the mood for hip hop.
I primarily listen to hip hop and classic rock / the beatles.
Here is what I had in mind - I will be using the monster line level converter to get my amp the signal.
Ill be using this as the amp:
Alpine MRP-M500 Mono subwoofer amplifier 500 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms at Crutchfield.com
matched with an Alpine Type-R 10" Sub
Alpine SWR-1022D Type-R 10" subwoofer with dual 2-ohm voice coils at Crutchfield.com
I was going to have it professionally installed with all the hardware for around $515 at ultimate electronics.
I am used to having a aftermarket HU, speakers, etc, but this car is a lease and I just want to add some nice lows without spending too much money.
Anyone got any opinions, or better yet has anyone done anything similar with a newer WRX?
