    2022 Mirage ES upgrade sound with subwoofer

    Just recently purchased the car and chose the one without the Rockford sound system and kinda regret it. Looking up information about upgrading has been a hassle and was wondering if anyone has any videos or pictures of them installing a subwoofer or buying the rockford and installing it. Thanks again and honestly the sound system isnít too bad I just want a little more bass!

    Generations of engineers have racked their brains for lowering noise level! Low frequencies are a particular challenge. Want more noise inside? Certainly not for me, but then, people have different preferences.
    I'm more concerned if the radio is good enough to pick up BBC4 in eastern Europe on 198kHz long wave, and it does that well.

    I have one picture, which shows all the cabling, but it was from when I added sound deadening to the car:

    So to explain:
    I've got power from the battery, added a fuse to it (close to the battery) and run the cable to the amp under de drivers seat through the cable clips under the door and added another easy to pull out fuse close to the amp. Then I ran a cable from the amp to the switch in the dashboard (EU models don't have the traction control switch).
    I changed this later to get a switching 12v source from the radio, so it doesn't drain my battery.
    For everything else: Since our radio doesn't have a rca output, I bought a device that converts high-level audio signals to low-level audio, and fed that into the audio input of the amp. For this I took the signals from both rear doors. The ground wire is connected to the lip where the jack is held after I sanded that down.
    And last but not least, I have run a thick audio cable to the back where my sub is so that it can be connected.
    Hope it helps!

    Adding a powered subwoofer is easy. Plenty available on the market, and anything is going to be better quality than what comes from the factory. That's what I did.
    I notice you're in the US - if you don't have a car audio shop near you that needs your business, then crutchfield.com is an excellent rescource.

    There are several posts about adding the direct fit Mitsubishi Rockford kit and other customer systems.
    I installed the Mitsubishi Rockford subwoofer kit and Rockford door speakers with baffles.
    It sounds like a premium factory sound system should. I think I had under $800 in all of it.
