So I ordered the sound group II, and like more base. The think is the 8" "sub woofer" almost qualifies as a woofer, not a subwoofer. I really want a 12" driver. Does anyone know how much power the subwoofer line provides and what the impedance of the woofer is? Im wondering if I can just connect the sub speaker level output into my highly effeciant 12" 4 ohm sub woofer, or if I can take that outout and run it into the speaker level in of an amplifier, but if it produces nearly 100 watts, the its probably not a good idea.
07 3.5L Charger K&N CAI, Magnaflow Cat back, JBA shorty's, DiabloSport 93 tune sold, 2010 Challenger R/T 5 speed. 180 degree Thermostat with fan settings lowered, CC, ceramic brake pads, slotted rotors, red and black caliper paint, Challenger label for calipers, Corsa Cat back, functional hood ducts, and hood struts, 93 custome DiabloSport tune, Mopar drop in filter, JBA Shorty's, Wideband O2, anti-sway bars front and rear, end links, and strut brace.
Impedance should be listed on the back of the speaker, as for wattage, thats something i dont know offhand
the sub line out is 46 watts and runs at 70 hrz's and down to 32 hrzs right at the edge of subsonic. all the speakers and the sub are 2 ohms. and no it wont run your after market sub direct
USE a adjustable line level converter-a after market sub and box and your good to go.
also use a DEI remote maker to make a remote wire signal. the way it works is it is taped to a switched power wire and than grounded. than you tap a speaker wire positive lead for the turn on and this will make a out put remote wire so the after market amp isnt runing with the key on and radio off. the remote wire will come on and off with the radio. ALSO port the rear deck were the 8 inch is by removing it and cutting the rear deck with the razor. you can get a port from www.partsexpress.com look under cabinet building for the port.

I'd be unstoppable if it wasnt for Physics & Law enforcement
Another way to add bass is to use the Pac-Audio C2A-CHY plug and play black box. This fits in-line behind your radio and gives you two pair of RCA outputs and a switched 12V output (for remote turn on).
Run your RCA's and remote turn on wire up the spine of the car (the transmission hump) and into your trunk, to the amp. Run the audio signal from the harness to the amp and run the output of the amp to your speaker, or speaker box.
It's really that easy.
One other option is to go with a Kicker ZX series amp, which now incorporates a signal sense circuit to automatically turn on the amp. Simply hook up power and audio in and out and your done. No need to run a remote turn on wire anymore. The amp detects the line differential on the audio input side and turns on the amp! Pretty cool.
Lastly, you can buy this factory SRT setup and run it as is! 200 watts of fury out of a 10" Kicker Solobaric and it can be easily upgraded later...
Hope this helps!
JBL amps have auto sence turn on also. [ for the past ten years]
That's good info S&S!
