I have a 2000 Monte Carlo and I'm kind of new to car audio. I would like to know how I should go about installing a subwoofer and replacing my factory amp. I'm unsure what amp I should get as well as how I should go about replacing the factory one. I'm also unsure if I would need a capacitor to help power everything or if that is just unnecessary. Some guidance would be very much appreciated!

What I'm Working With
I have an MTX Terminator 12" Subwoofer (200-400w RMS @2ohms)
An aftermarket Soundstorm ML41B head unit (40w)
6 factory speakers (Two 6.5"s, Two 6"x9"s, Two 0.75" Tweeters)
Factory Amplifier

What kind of install are you looking for? Are you ok with a box in your trunk? Do you want it to look factory? You have a lot of options for your install!

Going to need to replace that headunit with a better one. Then a Pioneer d9705 would fit the bill.

Dump the 6"x9"'s and get a decent set of 6.5" components. JBLGTO609C $90
