07 King Cab XE w/ stock single cd stereo. outside tag reads: CY12B

I have a pair of Apline E-10 Subwoofer in an extended cab special fit box. Does anyone know if I can run these off the stock stereo or would I have to upgrade the headunit? I have a kenwood amp. I guess I should of made my question more clear. I know the setup between the amp and the subs, and the ground. I just am fuzzy on how to get from the HU to the amp. Specially that stock headunit

You need an amp dude. It's not smart to run subs off the HU, especially a factory one.

Did your amp come with a plug to connect it to the speaker wires? You can do that with most I believe. It'll sound better with an aftermarket HU with a sub output though.

Personally, I would upgrade the HU.

sub

i think it does have the speaker wire connections. I will have to double check. in my old truck I did run out of a JVC sub port and it sounded good. Just wondering if it is worth the hassle to even try and work with the stock unit. The factory 6 speakers in the truck sound pretty good, nothing super special, but they get the job done.

Yeah, hook em to an aftermarket HU and tune it right and you'll be much happier. I ran my stockers off my Sony HU for like two years before I put my Infinity Reference's in. If you have a HU allready, buya $20 dash kit and swap it out.

Another Advantage Of An Aftermarket HU Is Alot Of The Newer Ones Let You Ajust The Bass, The Frequency, And Set Different Settings To Each Sub.. Creating A Better Sound Quality And Expierience..

subs

i have a 96 ranger (soon to sell) with a JVC Kameleon HU. how hard do you think it would be to swap the nissan CY12B into the ranger and then the JVC into the Frontier?

You won't be able to put the factory Nissan HU into the Ranger. It's got security stuff in it.

makes sense

makes sense...didnt even think about that...thanks for the help...
i think im just gonna stick with what i got right now. get some money out of the subs (they were given to me by a friend when he purchased some bigger 12' Alpines) so in the end I win either way.

know a good way to sell them?
or what i should sell them for?
as you can see, i really know nothing about car audio. ha...

appreciate the help

being alpine 10" depending what series E's, R's, S's? You Could Prolly Get Anywhere From 40 to 70 bucks a sub.. Depending on condition... Also Depending What Type Of Vechicle The Buyer Is Going To Put Them In.. That Custom Box Could Be Handy To Sale Along With Them

I Did A Lil Bit Of Research For You Online On The Alpine Website The 10-E Go For 69.99 A Piece Brand New.. So If They Are Still In Good Condition I Would Try To Sale Them For 50 Bucks A Piece..
The Custom Box I Think You Could Get 60 Bucks For So I Would Say Around 150-160Bucks Is A Good Asking Price For The Set Up For The Two Subs And Box..
