The subwoofer in our car has been blown for a while now.  Not a real big deal as we don't have it on that often.   BUT, if a guy wanted to replace this speaker....what fits in there?  7 inch appears to be an oddball size to start with. I'm not going to modify the console.

Anybody have any suggestions? 

Thanks -- Steve

You referring to your R/T10?  GTS uses a pair of 6 1/2" Low frequency round speakers behind the carpet coverting the back wall of your trunk.  Read "Stereo Upgrades" fpr specific brand and model numbers.

The head unit and amp being Alpine means that the quality is excellent.  I suggest that the generic factory speakers go into the garbage where they belong.  Premium sound is available with even cheap (inexpensive?) modern speakers.  Even the door speaker kits costing just over $100 are enough to double the quality of the sound system Steve.

I believe the RT/10 center console sub woofer is a 7" ...not 6.5 like the GTS has in the back.  I am going to upgrade the door speakers as well.  I'm also told the little tweeter in the door could stay.

The Door speakers are the most important.  The stocker uses a resistor to filter out the lower rfrequencies while nearly every "Door Kit" comes with a cross over box that "actively" filters frquencies to both tweeter and Wide frequency speaker.

I wouln't save any of that stuff.  Just change all the factory speaker stuff out.  The door speakers are called 6.5" but the size of the hole is 6 3/8" so 6.5" require some grinding (as shown in my How to thread).  After JUST the door speaker kit the quality and the bass more than double and at half volume the floor shakes.  With stock speakers the floor only shook at full throttle due to the "noise" and the sound sucked.  But the new speakers are such an improvement that you'll probably start listening to music!!!  Like I do
