Insurance companies charge barely anything to add a couple thousand of personal mod coverage to your car. I have my performance mods and system all insured. Just keep your receipts and have plenty of pics of serial numbers and the equipment in car.

Dragging up an old thread to see if anybody had pictures of subs in the rear deck of a Regal.
I had "free-air" 8" subs in the rear deck of my GTP with 100W/channel for many years and it was OK. Plenty of bass, but couldn't really play below 40Hz. I basically cut out the 6x9 opening and attached plywood there with screws and silicone. This wood had the 8" hole cut in it. This was way better than the stock 6x9s and factory glove-box amp. Actually, before I sold that car, I connected those subs to the factory amp and it still had decent low end.
I've been running a bandpass box with dual 10's, but I'm tired of taking it out anytime I want to use the trunk pass-through. There are Infinity 4-Ohm 6x9s in the stock location and I connected them to my amp the last time I took the sub box out. With the extra power and the crossover, it's a nice upgrade from the stock Monsoon (less mud, more punch).
So I'm looking for experience in how to package 1 or 2 subs in the rear deck. Maybe a DVC 10" in the center? Is there a way to remove the 6x9 and put a 10" there while retaining the 4" speaker? I plan to keep the stock grills and all stock look. Just want to get the right stuff on hand before I break out the air saw.

Anybody try these Tang Band subs? Reviews are pretty good and without cutting up the car, easy to change your mind.
At 8 Ohms you obviously need an amp - maybe something rated around 150RMS/channel at 4 Ohms. A subsonic filter at 30Hz would really help it pound without bottoming out. Don't know what kind of real frequency response the stock head unit has.
