While you're looking for one, make sure you have a 13.5mm drill bit to install the nut inserts in the trunk. I started my install over the weekend and got stumped on the drill bit!

Well, I finished my install today. This thing is totally what the sound system was missing. The system sounds clearer and when it thumps, it thumps, lol.

why really? I was going to go this route, but money aside, if you do it you will lose the pass thru in the back seat. You can save money and get a getter system that takes up less space by going the sub thump route.

Have you tried Becky at Rodgers Chevy? She is on these boards but is at the Fest right now. She can probably get you some good pricing.

I dont need the pass thru nor care if I lose it. I wont use it for anything. and to be honest I dont like the subthump look. Plus I prefer factory gm parts on my car. always have. im not hopping up a honda accord here. I want the fit and finish of the piece made for my car.
not that subthump is bad, I just think it could be done much better.

I'll have to respectfully disagree. The MTX isn't a GM, its a MTX, and it looks (to me) like an add on. The Subthump blends right in and looks like a part of the car.

Not manufactured by GM but GM was involved in the development of the product. In other words it has to meet certain reliability, quality, performance, and crash-worthiness hence the attachment process. I know some of the folks on the team that developed this with MTX and while it may not be a 1000 watt powerhouse it certainly brings in a bit missing from the BA system and that is the lower end of the bass response. Subthump makes great products but I'll bet none of their products has ever been through a crash simulation to see what happens...

the subthump looks like aftermarket. as do all subs in the trunk. gm included.
I just dont like the mis matched carpeting, the wires that stick out and the issues that can arrise from our systems when using different amps and power. thats the failure of GM and the design of their system, but it comes back to this, change it all, or stay close to factory.
again nothing against subthump. its the same as a q logic box. they are clean looking they are nice, but still beaten by a custom glass enclosure and for warranty and reliablity of the factory system, its just not an avenue im willing to take.
in 3 years maybe the whole system to get swapped but for now... im good with the gm

Don't know about others, but with mine the carpet matches great and there are no wires to be seen. It fits like a glove and you would be hard pressed to know that it wasn't built with the car. It looks MUCH better than the MTX system. I originally was going with the MTX, for many of the same reasons as you, but to me the subthump just looks and performs MUCH better. YMMV.

I have seen some nice stuff from subthump.
but it isnt any cheaper and short of a more powerful amp it isnt any better sounding. then the issue with the amp comes into play. but, as I said before if you plan on changing it all out, subthump is the way to go.
I found a nicely priced one on ebay i think im going to jump on.
maybe when my BA system acts up, ill upgrade all of it.
