Hello,
I was thinking to bypass the meager factory subwoofer in my 2021 Limited with a high/low (Speaker wire to RCA)) converter and running a class D monoblock amp in to two 12’s in a sealed box instead. I am guessing somebody has done this by now would like to see pictures and any concerns in bypassing the factory sub with a Hil-lo converter and what you used for the remote turn on wire for the amplifier. How did you run the power wire from battery to rear? Any crossover or noise noticed from factory head unit?
Thanks!

Did you happen to use a capacitor when you hooked up your system to the stock system? Going to add 750 W amp running at one home and thought would add a capacitor at the same time but since it’s not a huge amp wondered if I could get away with not using a capacitor

It's been a while since I talked audio. But if you want crisp full thumps you want a cap. Otherwise the amp will have power fade
