With good audio the stock one doesn't seem that bad. XM for eample sounds pretty good, though I refuse to pay for it. FM is definitely not up to snuff. Good CD sounds ok.

Always wanted more kick but didn't want to sacrifice what little space there was so this might be the ticket. Now to see if I can find it under $300 again.

Sonic electronics has it for $299 and when I bought it they gave me a 15% off code.

Pending install...

Just an FYI, I wasn't able to wire this to the Bose with Nav system. I ultimately did the nav delete and it sounds fantastic now!

Likewise with my highly controversial dual 8" Bazooka tubes with 600 watts running to them. What's your point?

Just to let those know.. I installed this sub in a base 2018 Z which has the smaller (‘doughnut’) spare. I had the whole system installed by local shop. The sub sits perfectly flat if you place it in. I have a small bump as the local shop put a wing nut on top of the bolt holding it down( so easy to remove if I need to access spare). If I trim the foam underneath the cardboard liner, it should be pretty flat. No rattle at all. Huge difference in the bass fill. I don’t use the remote. Had them adjust the remote so that I just adjust the Bass with the 1400NEX head unit. Used Focal PS165V1 components for mid and tweeter. Small external focal amp. All fit well and hidden behind dash. Ran in Network mode, but the local shop still used the crossovers.

Head unit has a glossy capacitive screen so a bit of glare, but have had it for a few weeks and don’t notice any problem viewing (but granted a bit of glare at times.) However, nice reactive screen.

Sub will rattle the rear view mirror easily.. all the Bass I need, although I’m not one to play it so you hear me 2 blocks over. That being said, I still need to ‘feel’ the bass.

Meh, 2 8" Bazooka tubes is plenty of bass for the majority of people in 370 or most hatchbacks. Not for ME, mind you, but then, I'm not normal. lol.

Really, those will put out a decent amount of bass. Not going to hammer at 30Hz, but they'll fill in the bottom end nicely, which is all most "normal" people want, to be honest.

Would you mind posting a detailed write up on how you installed the sub and wired it? I'm trying to upgrade my sound system and have been looking for a nice sub enclosure that wouldn't take up too much space so this would be perfect, but i have no clue how i would wire it up since i have a pioneer AVIC-5000NEX HU.

Simple with an aftermarket hu.
1) #8 red wire to battery for main power (fuse protected)
2) #8 ground wire attached to chassis.
3) RCA cable from sub output on hu to either one of the two rca plugs on sub
4) Blue wire to remote turn on wire on head unit.
5)Done

Thinking about picking up this subwoofer. Do you have any pics installed? The instagram link doesnt work. Also, where did you attach the ground?

Thanks,
Justin

Here's a picture. I used a #8 for the ground and grounded it to the chassis in the trunk area.

I ended up buying one btw! You seemed to have the answer I was looking for. I am a COMPLETE nOOb when it comes to car audio, so I am excited to see how this goes. Been scoping lots of best practices for cable management, and how to wire up. Will see how it goes

I bought an amp wiring kit. Anything else you suggest?
