get rid of the box and put the speaker in the stock location. ive read that there a lil confusion on the actuall true size of the stock sub. its supposibly an 8. ive read its a 6 and half or something like that. I think I even saw somewhere,that some had to modify the stock hole to fit an aftermarket 8.
try the speaker first in the stock hole, if you dont like it, put it back in the box and keep the stock sub out and use the hole as a port to let the bass into the cabin of the car.
and if all you are doing is changing the sub and using the stock amp, here is a super easy way to hook it up.......
in the trunk, left corner behind the carpet and mounted next to the gas tank is a silver box mounteded verticall with one wire pigtail connected at the bottom. this connector has a total of 8 wires total. the only ones yo need to worry about are the green ones. 2 total. the green withred is the negative, the green with the black is the positive.
you can cut the wires about 5 inches away from the connector and splice them to your new 8. and youre done. or.......if you dont want to cut any wires , cut the pigitail from the junk stock sub and splice those wires to the new sub and now you can just plug it into the stock harness. but the wires will run through the hole the stock sub was in. but the 3rd brake light cover will...well, cover it up.
