The Individual Audio OEM woofers are 7ohms; you just cannot replace those with the aftermarket woofers (2-4ohms) commonly posted in this forum unless you add a separate aftermarket amp.

Mismatched underseat subs

Has anyone tried one SWS and one Jehnert for under seat subs replacement? I'm assuming they're same ohm rating... One for better sub bass, one for mid bass. I've been thinking about trying this... Could this possibly be a good idea?

I doubt that would sound right with two different drivers on each side. You should just get the jehnerts and add a trunk sub.

Will this work if you have the Base sound system?

What are you replacing them with? You need a 2 channel amp. What would work best depends on the rms rating of your underseat subs and the impedance.

Please suggest which sub (under seat) and amp will work best for this.

If You want more SQ then:
Jehnert xe200 + maybe you will need JL XD200/2 (or another 2ch amp)

If You want moar low bass then:
Earthquake SWS-8 + JL XD200/2 (or another 2ch amp with 75+ RMS)
