Does anyone know the best way to remove the subwoofer baffling (if it's possible) or to remove the rear deck fabric?

I want to swap the subwoofer out with another 8" I purchased however I am unsure the best way to proceed without tearing up the back.

I went to my local dealer, and they provided me a breakdown of how to do it.

I am NOT going to to replace the stock 8" DVC. I installed a 10" DVC in a ported box, using the factory power, WAY more bass. I highly suggest to you to look into it. I am going to simply remove the sub so the sound can pass thru the read parcel deck. I was looking to install my Dual 10" MTX Box with my Boston Acoustics GT-22 AMP, but once I added the sub box, I found that (for now) it is ample for my veracious appetite for bass. Don't get me wrong; I WANT more, but surprisingly, the stock power is enough, if you are willing to add a sub box.

PLEASE NOTE: I had initially added my 2 MTX 10's (sealed) to the factory system, I simply connected the factory sub power to the box. It was BETTER than the factory 8" by far, but wasn't enough. I had another single 10" DVC sub, in (this is important) a PORTED and tuned box, and THAT made a HUGE difference. Running all the stock power (two lines) into the 10" DVC and THEN into the ported box gave me adequate bass.

In my old Mitsubishi I had a 12" sub in a custom handmade ported box I tuned for sound quality, not pressure and it sounded great. Funny thing is I only ordered 1 of these subwoofers but the box came with a pair so I'm debating what to do with the spare as I doubt the factory system will run 2 with enough power.

Do you know the breakdown of how to remove the subwoofer baffling?

It involves removing the back seat to then access, and remove the shelf. PM me your email, and I will copy/take a pic of the papers given to me by my dealer...

So what kind of sub are you running because I’m trying to do the same as you did so I don’t have to replace amp and wiring. I have been looking but a lot of subs require about 150 rms minimum

I may be interested in replacing the sub with another 8" possibly.

Or, would it be possible add an additional one that is already powered? Maybe under the seat?
