Unplugged wrote this in another post:

No subwoofer other then the stock one will work on the stock system w/o an aftermarket amp. I believe the stock unit is 8ohms, whereas most subs are 2ohm and 4ohm.

You can a line convertor that converts the signal from the speaker wire into an RCA cable (crutchfield sells it) and you can then do an aftermarket sub.

The eclipse GT with the rockford fosgate system TRUELY BUMPS.. I wish honda did the same. But the eclipse also has a regular rockford fosgate subwoofer and a more powerful amp.

Also I beleive it is an 8in sub in rear and not 10in.

first all - 120 is way too much, I got my alpine type-r for 89.00 shipped to my door step.

Even with the box, unless something of quality is too much. A cheap box can be had for 15.00 and the type-s sub for around 65-70 shipped.

Any subwoofer requires an amplifier and also a good headunit to process a quality signal to the amp. If you keep the stock headunit, the signal will never be as good and something like this is NOTICEABLE!

Also, i thought the factory subwoofer was 8 inches?
