    Upgrade factory sub options

    I searched around but didn't really find what I needed.

    I upgraded my head unit ot an eclipse in dash nav, and I've heard sound quality is better than stock.
    For speakers I ordered polk audio for the rears and component fronts.

    My question is regarding the subwoofer. The previous owner of my car got the factory sub. Is there anyway I can use this enclosure to put in a better quality amp and speaker? If so, what size woofer can it handle and any recommendations for this type of setup?
    I have a wagon and don't really want to put a box in the back.

    Thanks for the help

    from i know the factory sub is a small thing under the seat, that doesnt really make that much bass.

    go get a 10in woofer and a box, it should be plenty.

    that little box under the seat is next to useless, if you want to get the most out of your new speakers get an amp. That will improve things greatly.

    an amp and if possible try to get bigger speakers into the rear door. be it via a coustom enclosure. I want another set of 6.5's on the back doors

    i don't want a box either, and this is the only thinig i came up with.
