    And use stronger woofers to replace in the same box to see if it increases that "oomph"

    Edit: add pic of woofer removed with a tiny 3 to 5lb magnet LOL

    Edit: So it looks like maybe the factory harman Karman don't have all coils hooked up. The second speaker has only one coil hooked up from factory. See pic

    Final Edit: I finally did it, took me a few hrs. Tested it before finalizing the screws and silicone sealed. It hits way harder than the factory HK woofers. See pic.

    I am very happy with the Kicker in my 2008 Challenger, are the HK's really that bad?

    No idea, I always had great experience with Polk and Alpine subwoofers, Polk hits the deepest bass notes for me and rattle my car chairs like massage style. Fosgates too but they hit too sharp for me.

    Let us know what you get instead of the Harmon Kardon, I am looking to do the same. I like Fosgate a lot.
