Thumbs up Way to Enhance Factory Kicker Subwoofer

As some of you may know the factory subwoofer has a very hollow bass sound when it hits due to the plastic box, in order to make it sound a little more 'filling' pull the woofer out of the enclosure and fill the inside of the box with polyfill stuffing (not flammable cotton-like material) and throw the woofer back in and seal it all up and there you go! Sorry no pictures its simple enough though!

Wal-Mart might sell it.. it comes in a big bag just like cotton, looks like stuffing for a pillow.

It's not going to make any huge leaps forward and make it sound like a new sub-woofer, but if you have a keen ear for systems, you will hear a little bit of a difference.

The kicker system upgrade from stock is actually pretty nice. I'm generally very picky about my car audio, but this white one I got had the kicker package and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Although the front doors were blown...and 1 tweeter is dead, I'll replace those as well as upgrade the sub slightly - 200w or something.
