The OEM subwoofer is in a black box with the amplifer. It's very shallow. You'll need to replace the amp along with the speaker, if you do either.
It is very likely that you'll have to build out at lest a few inches to be able to fit an aftermarket woofer in. If you do, you will wind up with an undersized air space behind the big new speaker.
I'm don't listen to some of the really demanding new music with thuderous bass, but I do listen to music with some very heavy bass lines. I am shocked by the power of something ike the kettle drums in Copeland's Fanfare for theCommon Man. (this assumes windows are closed)
Have you tried turning up the bass one or two clicks, and the subwoofer two or three clicks? this may be an easier subwoofer upgrade.
