The stock subwoofer is a dual voice coil sub. I believe that is the question you are asking but I am not completely sure so if it is not I am sorry. If memory serves me right the stock amp is putting out somewhere around 15-30rms per channel at 4ohms. Don't quote me on that! If you are going to upgrade the subwoofer itself I would suggest you also upgrade the amp running it. Then you can match the sub and amp to your liking. I just got done adding the stock subwoofer to my 07 LX. I already replaced the stock HU so adding a sub was the next logical step. I have the stock sub in the stock enclosure but it is being run by a rockford Fosgate prime 150. The setup sounds great. In fact it sounds so good to me that I will keep the stock sub until it blows (if it blows). There is a mod called Mikes mod that I followed to give you an idea about the specifics. Hope this helps. If not I am sure some of the great members who know way more than I do will be able to help.

A speaker is only as good as the amp running it, even the best chef (the subwoofer) cant make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t (the stock amp thats pushing a max of 40 watts to that sub) , if your going to put an aftermarket sub in there you need to power it accordingly; it is really bad for the speaker/sub to be underpowered. You might run into some problems as well if you try to put a single voice coil on the amp that is set up for a dvc, and you might also run into problems wiring a dvc aftermarket to that amp cuz your either going to have to wire it in series or parallel. In series your going to have more resistance which will cause less power to be pulled from the amp and in parallel your going ot lower the resistance which might end up frying your amp depending on the what OHM the voice coils are...
