I don't think Logic sound is all that great. You may want to replace the woofers underneath your seats for good base without sacrificing your trunk space for a sub.

I replaced the underseat woofers with some Jehnerts fancy ones, and they didn't do much for me. What did help was an 8" sub that I put in one corner of the trunk in a custom box.

I did something similar. Ended up using a JL 700/5 and JL 200/2 and the technic harness and all problems are solved. JL 200/2 powered the rears and 700/5 powered the front, under seat, and trunk sub (JL 10w6v2). This is assuming that your car comes with HiFi though. I got all my stuff through MusicarNW. PM (VP Electricity) to find out more and also check out their website. You can't go wrong with his solution!

Seconded. I'm running BSW speakers, Jenhert underseats, ID12 sub in the corner mount enclosure all running off the MS-8 and a JL XD700/5. Sounds incredible, and this was an upgrade from the base audio system. VP Electricity has incredible knowledge of our systems and fantastic customer service, highly recommend working with him.

I also did an MS-8. If I were to do it again, I'd just do a simple signal processor (AudioControl or the like). The MS-8 sounds fine, but I didn't really like the results of the auto-calibration, so I ended up using a RTA and just equalizing it by hand.

We are installers for MusicarNW systems for this area if anyone would like to purchase any of their products. I don't think there are many people that know the sound system on this platform better than VP Electricity / MusicarNW.

I've heard CAS does some crazy stuff. Quality looks top notch too.

+1 if this this is the same Chris that has a shop across from Mach V... Very good work and some insane builds on some pretty top notch cars.
