Here are a couple tips that might help it sound better:

1. Close the cut-outs.
2. Play something other than Justin Bieber.

Oh come on, you know he's a Lady GaGa fan, that's why he needed the bass to begin with.

I used her CD along with Kid Rock and Eminem to try to tune it LOL. Just might be too much bass for me.

I disconnected the center speaker but I can go back anytime in about 15 minutes to remove the sub and plug the center speaker back in.

I'll give it a try. It does sound good, just a lot of bass and thats not really my thing. I like rattling the mirror with the cutouts, not the stereo... but I can do either now.

I put a bass level control knob on my subs. I like to be able to control the bass levels. I don't want it to be overwhelming either. I have mine set so it just fills in the bass a little bit. It makes the whole sound system sound much better.

Where does it go? I had to wire mine myself since there are no more ******** harnesses.

It connects to the amp your sub is plugged in to. Did you use a separate amp to power your subwoofer?


Here is my amp attached to the back of the sub box hidden behind the back seat.



A wire runs from the amp, under the floor trim, up to the console. I attached the sub knob to the console by my knee.

yes, its a seperate amp. I am not sure if the amp has a slot for gain control knob. I will look. I know what you are talking about. I had one on the Corvette...

Car is put up till this weekend so when I uncover it, I will check it out.

SCREWED INTO THE TRIM PIECE?!?!?!?!

Love the stitching...

And the amp didnt have a hook up for a remote mounted gain control BUT it did have a control which was on MAX! I played with the settings and much MUCH better.

Did you disconnect your center speaker? It's currently unhooked but it can be hooked back up very easy.
