Sub for EFII - Use existing 8" mount, or sub box?

Basically, as listed above... use the existing 8" mount in the parcel shelf, with an amp to power it, or go for a bigger sub in an enclosure (say 10-12") and stick that in the boot...

I'm running the standard Futura speakers in the front (2 in door, 2 on dash), and 6" JBL's in the back...

Also, for the fronts, can i just replace the 6" speakers in the door without needing to remove the tweeters in the dash, or do i need to replace both the door speakers and the tweeters with some aftermarket splits?

I'd much prefer to just replace the 6", and leave the existing tweeters as is...

Thanks guys...

Which way to go?

Ive tried the 8" sub spot in the ED, with an alpine 100w RMS amp and a kicker 8" sub, it was terrible!

Ive now got 1 12" pumping in a box that wedges beneath the rear parcel shelf and pumps into the cabin, soo much louder and more thump!

The 12" kenwood sub runs off an 200w RMS amp, powered by a ADX crossover! nasty stuff
