Adding subwoofer

Im currently adding a subwoofer and amp to my 2017 Niro hybrid. Going to try and post some pics once the site will let me.

The stock sub in back doesn't cut it for me and makes the whole system sound bad.

I have the touring with the harmon kardon but no it doesn't sound good to me. I attached some files of the stock sub out and me connecting my wires to it and also under the back seat and where you get the 12v power from.

It should be rocking. Open the hatch and face it backwards for jet propulsion!

Looks great! Sure eats up a ton of the storage space though... that's what has largely discouraged me from doing something similar, I need the space in back regularly.

I have also grown accustomed to the stock sound now after six months, and made some adjustments to the EQ in the system as well as the EQ settings on my music player (an iBasso high-def device), and that has made things a lot better too. Given that I am blessed with a commute under 10 minutes and rarely take drives longer than about half an hour, I can live with this (for now).

It may look bigger than it actually is I can still get a large cooler between the sub and the hatch. But the sound is like day and night. much better.
