if you fit a clean sweep to the speaker lines and then run the connected RCA's into an amp then you can run a normal sub no problem!
active subs are usually rubbish (there are a few exceptions) so i'd definately recommend at least one 10" or 12" sub!
if you go over to the TalkAudio forums and join up, they'll be able to go into more detail for ya!
good luck getting it sorted mate!
a clean sweep basically is an RCA adapter and it allows you to connect to a normal rca input on an amp.
the adapter you're thinking of can only connect to an active sub with a high level input which, unless you're planning to spend about £500 is probably going to be inferior to a similar amp and sub setup of the same price!
Thanks for your link Aussie - very helpful I now realise that the battery is situated in the boot so that makes it very easy to fit a subwoofer (just fitted a sub for my girlfriend in a VW Beetle and took ages!!! hopefully not as long to do in my mini)...
Whats the bass line like on the Rockford sub - I am after something with kick and doesn't fill the boot .
Thanks for everyones help so far, this is such an informative website and is a real assest to anyone that owns a Mini - there is nothing like this out there for other cars
Well I am looking at around the £150-200 mark for the sub so nothing too special, just something that will put a 'pump in my trunk' . Had a look at Talk Audio but this forum is being more informative at the moment
Does anyone know if the Vibe CBR 10" EVO Active subwoofer fits into the mini cooper s boot? I've just been out to my car and measured up and its very very close fit so not sure if it will actually fit.... Any one got one of these fitted in theirs?
