    Not sure I would say the trunk is well insulated, sounds more like a freq or gain or lastly and least likely power source issue. Where are you getting your signal from? And what are you doing w said signal?

    Yes...
    Check to make sure you haven't reversed polarity on the JL sub...it will cancel with the original sub.

    Also Rule of thumb with ANY sub is 3 things:
    1. location
    2. location
    3. location

    Now place you sub furthest from driver all the way in the back and you will hear a difference!
    Placing the sub directly under the factory sub is NOT the best place

    Good luck

Oh yeah, got a sub today too.

    Nice! That's the same sub (10"?) I'm aiming to get too. I'm still doing more research to prepare for the purchase and the install. Let us know how it goes...install and post install results. Good luck!

    EDIT... Doh! I see it's a 12" after zooming in. Very NICE! For me, the 10" will be plenty from my experience with the JLA enclosed sub in my old Camry.

    I found the amp which is located in the trunk lift side hidden in the sidings.

    Now, does anyone know which wire connects to the subwoofer?

    How did you install the Video In Motion in a 2015 Genesis Sedan.? How much did it cost? Thank you in advance.



    QUOTE=MathWiz;196854]I finally was able to install mine over the weekend

    Added the LC2i from AudioControl along with the subwoofer level control. This has signal sensing turn on for the amp.



    Added a Alpine MRP-M500 - Amplifier - 1-channel

    Product Features

    RMS Power Per Channel Into 4 Ohms: 300W X 1

    RMS Power Per Channel Into 2 Ohms: 500W X 1

    2 Single Voice Coil Subs Or 1 Dual Voice Coil Works Best

    Number 1 Rated Amp In The US



    and the 2 10" JL Audio subs I took out of the car replaced by the Genesis.



    Fills in the bottom end nicely.

    I added the Video in Motion (VIM) interface from NavTV so that DVDs can now be shown with the car moving.

    I was able tominstall everything.

    Several ive encountered.

    1. I tappedto the subwoofer connector. If the volume is low, the LC2 i will not power on as well as the amp. It has to be in middle or halfway to power it using GTO. The power cuts off depending on the music.

    2. If the music is off, i get a very loud hissing on the subwoofer. Really loud.

    3. I barely notice the bass. The 2015 Genesis Sedan Ultimate Tech Package has a very good sound insulation that you dont hear the aftermarket sub. But if the trunk is open, i can feel the bass and the vibrations on low freq.

    Any input will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    You're pointing speakers away from car, so it's normal for sound waves to travel away from you and outside the car through the trunk, bumper cover, etc. The back seats have thick foam behind them and some metal/plastic, then some type of felt layer all over the trunk. If you're sitting in the front of the car, you have even more layers to block the sound (4 seats, absorbing materials like the carpets and headliner material) that's why the stock sub is pointed up right into the car.

    I think for best results, even with just one smaller sub instead of 2 big ones, you'll want to simply replace the stock one, or use that same opening (or another one like the pass-through between the back seats).

    Outside of that, any way you slice it, even if you get 10x the volume so that you can feel it better inside the car, you'll be wasting most of the sound which kinda goes against the point of good soundproofing in order to get good sound.

    You find the V8 with Tech stereo not to your liking in terms of the bass?
    I have the 17 speaker lexicon system in 2014 r spec...although system sounds great....some ppl including me always want more...just the way it is...upgrading turns me on....grrrr

    Question Re: Sedan Subwoofer install

    Members don't see this ad
    Out of the box thought. If our source is Bluetooth could we place bluetooth receiver on sub amp and have source stream to both head unit and sub? That way you'd get full non-eq'd signal to sub.
