Sound System

i currently installed a clarion CZ500 with an HD reciever. everything else is factory. im looking for advice on what to do to get a little more bass and better crisp sound without jeopardizing any space. im not looking for window rattling bass. just want a good equal balance. any suggestions?

Im also at Fort Benning and trying right now to retrofit in a stock sub enclosure and amp with an aftermarket 6.5" sub. Im now on my 3rd attempt but if it works it should add a little bass and be out of sight in my center console. You could always try this out.

Yes that's correct, I don't know the model number but it's a pyramid 6.5" and I believe you just hook up the brown and grey wires to the sub. It needs a little work to fit it in the enclosure though.

Do away with the factory 6.5in sub size. An 8in will fit in the same center console box. You have to modify it a little bit but it will fit and sounds alot better than a 6.5in

True but I'm trying to get around having to get another amp that increases the possibility of theft. Do you know which wires are needed for the stock amp to work. I need all of them, I don't have the stock plug or harness.
