PAM's Auto, Inc. - Radio Audio : MILAN 10-11 amp, ID 8A5T-18C808-AB

If that be the case then it is 10 amps??
Prob not worth putting a better sub in then with only 10 amps to power it.

Looks like ford uses this little amp on quite a few vehicles.

Thanks

How do they get away with stuff like that? A 10 amp sub? Did the group of folks at ford who had the final say on the speaker system really turn on the tunes and say it sounded good. It's pathetic, not even adequate. I'm embarrassed to have friends riding around with me while listening to some tunes.

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the stock amp.

10-11 amps X ~12 volts = 120-150 watts. That's close to the one TexasA&M posted, and not completely unreasonable for powering an 8" sub if it's a mono D rated amp from what the research I've done would tell me. The lack of any tuneability on the stock amp looks like biggest drawback to me.

I think I'll be going ahead and trying a simple subwoofer upgrade to start with and then replace the amp if I'm not happy with it.

Same here. I'm not looking for any real heavy thumping, just some better, clearer bass. Question is, what ohm? Crutchfield has a choice of 4 shallow mount 8" subs at 50-120(150) watts and at 2 or 4 ohms.

I have not looked at the OEM sub but suspect there is no spec info on it.

I have a separate amp to power a JL Audio 13TW5 in a custom box under the rear seat,,,,still have the stock head unit......more than enough bass. The 13TW5 is a shallow mount sub, perfect for under the seat

This is the one I have my eye on if it will fit -

JL Audio 8W3v3-4 8" 4-ohm Component Subwoofer

Pricey, but I only want to do this once.

I need to install my stealthbox in my 2011. I don't want to lose the under seat storage, but I'm getting tired of the lack of bass....

It takes about 2 minutes to figure out that the factory sub is a joke. Sounds good at very low volume but if you want to enjoy what you're listening to, forget it.

I have one too if anybody wants it. Been sitting in a box for almost 2 years now.

Get some subs installed or tackle it yourself. It is not hard, just a little insecure at first.

Then get your steely Dan, dave Matthews, or Korn out and enjoy!.

I put my factory one on eBay and got $75 for it right away. There is a value there to someone. Just not to me. Both the amp and the driver were a complete joke.

LOL, I was thinking watts and typing amps....good thing I don't do this for a living (no, wait a minute......). That is a bit more reasonable! I know some people have used the factory sound and power source that goes to the factory amp and simply hooked it up to a larger amp and sub. They have said it works fine but not sure what power level you could go up to. The one I remember put in a 300W amp with no issue......
That would be really simple with the wiring already there.

Love listening to dave matthews now (or any band that uses actual musical instruments). It's great to be able to hear the instruments, especially the cymbals, sounds like they are smashing away on them inside the truck. It's great. The music sounds completely different!

Can't remember as the buyer paid. I'm thinking it was only 20-30 and it shipped across country to CA.

I just had a kicker 10" added behind the rear seat. Huge difference over factory. Had kicker speakers put in as well. The stock system was a joke.

Wasn't looking for earth shattering base but a good sub makes a huge difference.
They made a box for a 2001 F150 and the guy changed his mind. It happened to fit my F250 very well. A little tight but it fit.

Finally got around to having a good look at the truck last night, only to find out that much to my dismay, I don't even have a factory subwoofer.

I'll be looking at installing a small powered unit behind the rear seat or maybe under the passenger seat depending on what I can find. There seems to be lots of off the shelf 8" sub options out there that will give me all the bass I want and not take up a ton of space.
