95 explorer eb
I have a 95 explorer eb with the jbl audio sytem in it and just recently the 8" factory sub went out. Would my factory amp be able to push, maybe a 10" aftermarket sub without any problems? Im kinda new with car audio so any input is much appreciated.

you're lookin at 85watt rms, and in the world of subs, that isn't all that much. to add to that, you have to get a 10" to fit back there. unless you were planning on modifying the stock box to fit a 10" (which would still require a very shallow sub imho), you'd need a new box.

I have my factory 10'' setup with amp for sale at the moment. You should be able to wire it up easily because its only a 4 wire setup. You also could buy my setup, sell the amp and use your existing amp on my box and sub for it to work without modification ;)

Thank alot, im just tryin to find away to replace some bass that i once had, you can only go with highs for so long. I think im just gonna get a new box and run off the factory amp. thanks man..
