Factory sub package

I was on Facebook just now and noticed GM's Camaro page posted about accessories at www.gmaccessories.com It mentioned the subs in the post and its listing showed them as being available Q2 2009. Is this true are they available now? I didn't think they were. Also if so has anyone purchased them and seen how they hook them up? It lists them for $1,000 plus install and I know I can build a better setup for much less as I've done it before but I don't want to cut up the wiring if I don't have to.

Here is The GM subwoofer installed in my car. Sounds great I had to turn it down to 1/2 its so powerfull. Takes up no space in the trunk and wire harness needed is included with subwoofer as well as wiring instructions. I had dealer install so full warranty.

By my observation, it appears to take up some trunk space and also eliminates the pass-thru function.

Is there an amp sealed as part of the box? Where does the wiring harness tap into? I wonder if the harness is available separately. I really need some "thump" but I really cant gut the feeling of hacking up the car yet for modifications!!

If I supplied the Factory Sub, does the dealership just charge an installation fee? I guess I'll talk to the Parts department at the dealership.

I've been interested in the sub box since the accessories list came out, and would have added it as an option if it was available when I ordered my car.

It takes up very lttle trunk space at all but it does eliminate the pass through. Which I personally have no intention of ever using. There is a gain control knob located in the back of the unit which is reachable by dropping the seat. Yes there is a 200 watt amp inside and it wires to the existing harnes in the trunk and all wiring instructions are included.

When the factory sub is hooked up does it cut the low base to the other speakers? That would be the idea thing and let the subs handle the low end.

I'm interested in buying it from gmpartsdirect, but I'm worried about the cold in shipment / condensation.

I stopped at my dealership today. They wanted $1122 installed. So I asked if I supplied it how much installation was, they said like $75. So I'm gonna buy it, depending on how easy installation is, I'm either going to install or i'll have them do it.

I guess that my question is how does the amp hook up? I know that there are plenty of people on here that have an aftermarket system but all of them have had to splice in wires or "tap" off existing wires because there is no direct hook up. Is there some sort of special harness for the GM box so that I don't have to hack a unit in there?

Interesting... I'd be interested in getting this harness, and tapping into the harness that just plugs in rather than tapping into the wires in the trunk... I wonder if you can buy just the harness...

Yes, its a 200 watt amp. I dont like messing around with the audio. I did it in my old camaro, not a fan. Thats why I'm insterested in the MTX Factory Sub. The ease of installation is worth $780 (shipped from GM Parts Direct), thats why I'm getting the Factory Box.

I had been looking for a pic of this actually installed... nice.
I'm sure it's loud enough cause my 2001 camaro has the 10inch MTX Thunderform with the built in 200 watt amp and it sounds just right for me... Adding another sub and sharing the wattage would probably sound just right as well...considering that this is not a hatchback anymore and more power or air movement is needed to overcome the seats...

I have the 2SS and will be upgrading my system as well since bass sucks in it... I can barely even tell it's there... but then again, I've always had at least a 10inch or 2 12inch subs in my cars...

I do agree that it is a lot for that setup... I mean... you're paying for convenience... so everyone to their own...

I wish I was able to get my hands on that harness so that I could tap into it instead of the actual wires going into the amp...

I will probably be going with a single 10inch 10W3V3 with a Corner Stealth Box... I'm not into pounding bass anymore... I just want a little bump inside the cabin and dont want anything that will make the trunk rattle...

When I had 12s in my camaro, my trunk rattled and I hated that... i think it is embarrassing.... When I moved to a 10 inch... The bass inside fills the car and there is no rattle to the trunk... I expect to do the same in my 2SS..

Question: Do the 2 10s MTX setup make your trunk rattle?
Does it make anything inside rattle or vibrate?

So I went to my dealer and tried to get teh harness, he had nothing, he did have a mounting kit... I wonder if that has the harness in it, I also think I recall seeing a spare plug on the factory amp to connect it perhaps? (meaning for turn on signal and audio signals etc.)

I wonder if Camaro Scotty's parts guy could find it.

200 for two 10's is not much at all... 200 for a single is probably minimum. my last sytem was 250 watts per channel. 2 10's in a band pass.

Well I picked up the GM system today. A local dealer sold it for 866.00 out the door, and I am going to have them install it as well. I had looked at several systems and decided for a little more I would have a gm system covered by warranty.

See if you can get a part number for the wiring harness!! I want to get just the harness. PLEASE!!! I'd greatly appreciate it. ASk the dealer or take a look at it afterward and see if there is a part number tag on it!

Thank you very much in advance!

Anyone know the difference between the stock MTX sub and JL or Kicker? I mean what would keep someone from changing them out?
