Default Possible upgrade to the OEM subwoofer

Guys, I no longer have my F150. I went to the dark side and bought a Ram with a Cummins diesel.

A lot of us here were always looking for a better woofer to install in the '11-'13 F150 OEM sub box. Well the guys on the Ram forums found one and I wanted to share.

I am 90% sure the woofer in my Ram is the exact same woofer Ford uses in the F150. It was tough to find an 8" dual 2 ohm subwoofer with a shallow enough mounting depth for the factory under rear seat enclosure (Ram or Ford). The Pioneer TS-SW2002D2 fits perfect in my Ram - even the holes line up. Again, I am pretty sure this will work the same in the F150. You can find this woofer on Amazon for about $78. I think it will be a worth while experiment.

Make sure you use the gasket that comes with the woofer. Also, PROPERLY plug the hole in the bottom of the enclosure where the screw that went into the back of the factory woofer. (You'll see what I mean when you take it apart)

That Ram sub box is VERY VERY close to the same size as the F150 sub box - so here are my impressions on the sound in the Ram.
Definitely a cleaner tighter, more accurate bass. It "may" be a tad louder but it is much less muddy and you really 'feel' it when it hits. It was a very worth while investment for me and I hope it will help my F150 brothers.

I'll keep checking in to see if anyone tries this out.

One of the members here Ricer X, put the Pioneer sub in his F150 and told me it sounds much better. He also said it was a perfect fit. So improve your subs guys! It fits and sounds better as reported. Hopefully he will chime in on this thread.

Yes it does fit, all the holes even lineup. It's a nice little upgrade. Sounds better than the factory one with more bass. It's what I was looking for. Now I have to find some decent door speaker replacements, any suggestions?
