DrWardner Nevermind!! I found it! This is the thread you were a part of Panthermark. Looks like I'll be doing this soon. Perhaps I'll chime in again when I have some experience with it of my own. He said:

"I just got done replacing mine and it sounds incredible. Took some work though. I may do a full write up once I am done with everything. I am replacing the Infiniti speakers as well. I did have to make a 3/4" spacer to compensate for the depth of the sub. The stock sub enclosure is 0.3 cu ft. I went with an Alpine Type-r SWR-843d 8" sub which calls for the same size enclosure. This is a key to making things sound good/right. If the enclosure size is wrong, it will not sound good. I used a Dynomat equivalent (Fat Mat) within the sub enclosure to re-enforce the plastic and help dampen vibration. The overall result is honestly better than I thought it would be. (I am using the Alpine PDX-5 to drive the sub at 400 watt RMS. )"

DrWardner I have looked for a thread on someone actually speaking from experience on sound coming from this set up. I'll keep looking for another one... But would love if someone can chime in who has experience with this set up. Thanks for the responses!

panthermark Someone has it, but I can't remember who. I posted a comparison pic in one of the many sound threads. (Kicker vs Alpine sub). You need a ring spacer for both.

That is/was the sub I was going to go with. But I'm going to stand pat on the system for now and focus on security features first.

You might be able to find it if you do a forum search for Alpine Type R.

8" Alpine Type R In OEM Enclosure?

Does anyone have the Alpine Type R 8" sub running in the stock sub enclosure? I've seen a few threads on here that show pics of it, but I'm curious how it sounds with an aftermarket amp. I know I'll get a few responses suggesting that it needs a new box, but I just want to know how it sounds in the stock enclosure by someone who has this set up.
Thanks! Anyone? Anyone? Anyone know??
