Looking for recommendations for an amp and subwoofer. I own a 2022 LT, and while the stock speakers do a fine job, I really want to feel the bass. Are there any guides out there for doing the install myself, and for anyone that has done it, how would you rate the difficulty as opposed to having it professionally installed? Also, for anyone that has installed an amp/sub, would you recommend new speakers as well? If so, which ones? As a reference, I mostly listen to technical death metal, so I want to be able to hear the nuances without the sound being muddied by the double bass drums common to this style of music. Thanks.

You didn't mention if you have Bose but I am going to assume you don't. If you do there would be a factory amp and sub and you would defiantly feel some bass. As for doing it yourself your going to need to need a line output converter to run an amp with the stock head unit. There are a lot of videos on installing one so you will have do some research. Overall I don't think it would be too difficult as long as you have some mild-moderate electronic knowledge. Setting the gain might be a little confusing but there are ways to do it without an oscilloscope. As for a sub how much space are you willing to give up in the back? Generally speaking if you want deep bass go for a 12, if you want tight punchy bass go for an 8 and if you want something in the middle go for a 10. Of course the bigger the sub the larger the box and the more space you will have to give up. if you really want to feel the bass I personally think you would be happy with a 12 in a ported box. if you really really want to feel the bass well double it up and get 2 12s or one good 15. As for brands I would say look at Skar audio for gear that is good but wont break the bank. if you want top of the line stuff look at Sundown but I don't think you need to spend that much on gear. Also lastly I'm no expert and I have never bough a new car but wont it void you warranty if you do it yourself? Sorry for the long response I tried to be as descriptive as possible.
