  1. Non Bose Subwoofer Install on Gen 2

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    This is a very easy install, everything you need is in the trunk! I've been installing aftermaket sound systems in cars since I started driving, this might be the easiest install ever. No running wires from the front of the car. If you are quick you can probably get this knocked out in an...
  2. JL Audio Microsub+ subwoofer installed in 2017 Volt (non-Bose)

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    When shopping for lease deals on my Volt, the best offers I got were all on LT's that didn't include the Bose option. So, at a minimum, I was looking to add a bit of bottom end to the sound of the stock audio. I saw a number of people added the Bose enclosure with a Dayton Audio driver, which...
  3. 2015 Non Bose Upgrade

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have always had something other than a stock radio so I simply couldn’t stand the Non Bose stock deal any longer. First thing I did was add an 8” powered Bazooka and tapped off of the rear passenger speaker wires at the post. For power I added an inline fuse to the existing fuse block on...

    Has anyone removed the false panel in the trunk on an LT (where the sub would be in the premier)? I am looking for photos or instructions on how to remove it without damage.
  6. For those who upgraded the audio system: experience with different speakers/subs?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    For those who upgraded the audio system: advice on different speakers/subs? I finished installing a custom stereo system in my Volt last night. It "piggybacks" on the Bose system - basically I cut the input wires for the front, routed them to an input converter and then to my amp then cut the...
  7. My new 2013 Chevy Volt dynomating and stereo install

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Well I have been scouring the net and have yet to find anything complete on the volt, so not to make any bold claims, but I am wondering if this is the very first volt that will be completely stripped for the sound deadening and stereo install. In my last car, the bass would be loud enough...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Aftermarket Subwoofer installed keeping stock amp setup Hi guys I'm new to the site but read countless threads here about updating the stereo system but with not a lot of luck it would seem. Today i took apart the rear and hooked up my all in one system i had for a few yrs and it worked...
  9. How to disable the Bose subwoofer

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    The Bose subwoofer is terribly detrimental to the sound quality in the Volt. They inexplicably seemed to have tuned the port to the resonant frequency of the car. Anyway, if you want accurate sound you can disable the subwoofer in about 10 mins with 1 socket wrench required. Lift up the hinged...
