so i have the regular sound system and added a 10' sub with a 2 channel amp to my system.

i recently got the stock sub with box from the cobalt pioneer sound system. it has four wires going into a clip coming out of it. how would I go about wiring it in with my existing system?? so I would have 2 subs with my current amp one from the stock pioneer system and the other my sony xplod.

I'm not familiar with that sub but I don't know why the 4 wires. Is there an amp built into that sub?

Maybe someone can help that has that Pioneer system already installed. I don't have that system in my LT Sedan.

I did the sam ething but had the now defunct Circuit CIty do the install of the amp and wiring. You will need the bolts from GM to mount in factory position, save money and only order the bolts, go to your local hardware store and get the nuts for them.

The factory Pioneer sub is a dvc sub, 2-2ohm voice coils. Each set of wires on the sub encloser is wired to one of the voice coils.

probably wouldn't. most people pull em so you can probably get it for next to nothing... or go to a pick a part and see if u can find one
