    Factory Sub Blown

    I have a 1998 Ford Expedition with the Mach Stereo Speaker system. The Factory Sub is blown. I took out all of the screws but can't pull the sub out from the side panel. The woofer will spin clock and counter clock wise but will not come out. How do I remove the woofer from the side panel. Question #2. Do anyone know of a good replacement woofer that will fit in the existing hole. I want to utilize the factory amp because I'm extremely cheap. I want this project to be as simple as possible. Thanks, Chris.

    as for utilizing the factory amp...highly doubt you'll be able to do it

    factory amps are generally not that powerful in the grand scheme of things

    the factory sub is probably some strange off the wall ohm configuration, and you'll need to match it with the sub you replace it with

    this is one of the MANY reasons why I think that premium factory sound systems are some of the biggest loads of crap out there

    as for getting it out...not sure since I haven't worked on one of those myself

    it honestly sounds like the magnet is sticking to the metal behind it! the only place a speaker is mounted is by the front of the surround.

    As for rerplacing it....well....a cheap one A more expensive has a lower efficency rating to create butt rattling bass which unfortunatly requires more power to drive it. Going with a super cheap sub will getting it pounding again to the standard lacklustre quality that it was The 03+ use an 8" sub but I believe prior to that they were using a 10" I may be wrong but I do remember that it was a normal size. Impedance...well....from memory, it was still 4ohms.
