99 times out of 100 it will not be as loud and will sound worse. If you take the time/effort to seal off the front of the box it might be louder with the seats down but that is a lot of work.

A center channel would ruin your sound stage since music is almost always recorded in 2 separate channels. Adding the center channel would make your stereo sound mono, or perhaps cause you to not hear some of the music. If you get your left and right speakers set up right (ie time alignment) it will...

An amp will sound better or worse depending on its quality, but only to a certain extent. The box has a much MUCH bigger impact on the way a sub will sound, so with that in mind what are the box specs? pics would be great too

The way a sub sounds comes from almost entirely the box. Any air leaks will be detrimental to the output and sound. oh, and to the above post, not enough port.....

any kind of wire carrying a constant supply of power (direct current) will create a small magnetic field around it. If any signal wires cross over the power wires it can create a humming commonly known as alt whine. does the pitch of the whine change with the rpm of the car, or is it a constant freq...
