    Putting a different sub in factory Subwoofer Box 2004 explorer

    I was thinking about trying a shallow mount pioneer 8" subwoofer in my factory enclosure in my 2004 Explorer. I will be powered by an "old" punch 100.

    Has anyone tried that??

    Do you think it will sound decent or crap?

    I just dont want to put a box with 12"'s or anything in the back.

    Thanks

    Look into a JL Audio 8w0, just double check the mounting depths. I'm 99% sure that will work in there however.

    if its a sealed box, itll sound just how the woofer is supposed to sound in a sealed box

    It shouldn't sound like crap unless the enclosure is not sealed up or is the wrong size altogether. Last time I checked, it's pretty common to install an 8 inch aftermarket sub in there....been awhile since I've looked into it though, so my memory is cloudy.
