First off, wow it has been a while since I've been here. Doubt anyone remembers me, but I learnt quite a bit reading these forums before. Now onto my question:

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300C with the 8 speaker Boston Acoustics sound system. I'm thinking of putting in my old stereo gear in place of the stock stuff, to get a nice upgrade over stock, without losing to much trunk space or making it to obvious to the outside world (don't need people breaking into the car). Basically if you look at the car I'd prefer it to look as stock as possible.

The head unit is going to be a Chrysler MyGig system from a 2010 Chrysler 300. I can tap a set of RCA out's from it to supply my amps. My amps I'll be using are an older Coustic 400W sub amp and a Coustic 60Wx4@4ohm, 120Wx4@2ohm, 240Wx2@4ohm amp. I still can't let go of my A/D/S 320is's and while I know there is bigger and better out there, I will be reusing them. The only downside to them is the 5" midrange, when mated with my old 12" sub, could have almost used a midbass driver in there. That may come later.

Now my 300C came stock with an 8" BA sub mounted IB in the rear deck. I'm wanting to keep this mounting arrangement with as little modification as possible, so my question is. Does anyone know of a decent 8" IB sub that can run off of about 400watts @ 2ohm? I would like something in the $200-300 range, but if there is just nothing for that price I may look at spending a bit more. I'm not after insane sound levels, I just want a nice sounding, balanced system. I liston to mostly rock n roll, with some country and newer rock thrown in (Tom Petty, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler, Corb Lund Band, Blue Rodeo, The Tragically Hip, Johnny Cash, etc.)

Anyone have any suggestions? If 8" is just to small, I may be willing to cut up the deck to fit a 10" as well. Thanks!

stiffen up the deck. not just damping mat, which would help, but bolt some wood to the deck as well. you don't want it flexing. to get an RCA signal, you're going to have to get the signal after the amp. Those systems use a digital signal to the amplifier which controls volume, fade, etc. the signal level is not adjusted until inside the amp. it's also all canbus, and they make an adapter that reads the data for creating a remote wire

Thanks, I'll look into stiffening up the deck.

Pac Audio makes a module that goes inbetween the head unit and the amplifier that gives you RCA outputs and an amplifier switch lead. I shouldn't have a problem getting RCA outputs.

I was just saying you have to get the signal after the amp in that factory system. Older Chrysler headunits always put out an internally amplified signal, even if it had a booster amp. These newer digital amps in the Chryslers don't
and yes, the SNI-45T or SOEM-T from PAC should work.
