I used the SubThump fark, their dual 12 inch enclosure, this Rockford Fosgate P1000X5 Amp and 2, Rockford Fosgate P1S2-12's.

The amp provided an extremely nice improvement in the factory speakers. However the subs I can tell are underpowerd, I had a JVC mono amp in there and running subs only while I was waiting on the RF one to come in and it was hitting hard. That said it's probably exactly what 2ncd chance is looking for (with less bass). Just note that this amp will not fit in the factory location. I mounted mine on the back of the sub box after it was in the trunk making it accessible from the front of the car by putting down the back seat.

I will probably add a mono amp to my system just for the Subs eventually, for now the improvement in the factory speakers and having low end bass now makes me happy...

BTW, if your trying to find an amp/subs that will run with the factory speakers. You should know that the stock Boston Acoustic speakers are 2 Ohms.

What speakers should I get for the doors and small rear seat ones? I have the Subthump with Fark and 10" Kicker sub with JL 700/5 AMP. Doesn't sound to bad now but I want more!

Most of the stuff doesn't even work without an active Onstar and XM account. I actually feel that I was flat ripped off by GM on this system and would gladly rip it out and hand deliver it to someones desk for my 850 bucks back. worst premium system in history.


The stock headunit is absolute garbage. along with the rest of the system
this is one time I miss my Mustangs. the Mach and Shaker systems were so much better.

as was the Bose in my G35 Coupe even that was better.

I don't know what everyone is complaining about, I just turn off the stereo and listen to the most beautiful sound a car can make!

I also have to add that this is the worst system I have ever owned in a vehicle! No real clear low end, midrange, or highs. It's very veiled in comparison to my other systems.

Had the same problem was disappointed with the quality. Went with a JL 700-5 and hybrid audio speakers plus a hybrid woofer. Clarus Stage IV speakers. Don't forget to add sound deadening to the doors and trunk. Sounds like a concert going on in the back seat.

I have a problem with the amp it doesn't achieve the volume you would want going down the highway wind noise drowns it out.

I think this has been backordered for a while.
