2015 Base CRZ and powered sub

Is there a sub line out on the base head unit that would make it easy to hook up a powered pancake sub like this, does it make sense to bother or is the basic stereo well enough designed? I had this sub leftover from a my 1991 CRX I finally sold :O(
Thanks,
Scott

Wait...you sold your CRX, and didn't tell me?

Sadly is how I sold it, a near rust free stock '91. At least it went to a local collector.

It sucks when old cars just get too old. But there's always more.

You're the only one who can decide if your stereo is up to what you want.

True, I was mostly interested in whether or not there is a sub lineout from the head unit of the stock CRZ stereo. Older stereos often had this which would make an install of a powered mini sub unit very easy for me.

Assuming that you got base model without navigation, according to a diagram there still should be amplifier that has sub output.

Although I have EX model without navigation, it came with rear sub already.

Stock radio output is weak. All 4 speakers that were in stock car (in doors and rear) sounded really flat & did not put out serious bass. Even sub didn't put out enough to make up for flat speakers.

If you only listening to the news or weather channel on the radio - you should be okay, but if you like some beats then there is some work to do.

In the front I put Pioneer TS-D1330C 5 1/4" Component Speakers. Swapped OEM tweeters. On the rear - Pioneer coaxials. Sub I swapped onto Pioneer's shallow. (had to take sub enclose out & modify a little). Also swapped head unit to Pioneer with car play. Dynamat installation was a must as well.

I didn't change amplifier, but as I read the stock on on EX and NAVI models is okay. Unless you wanna go with something little like Pioneer GM-D1004 400W 4-Channel GM Digital Series Class FD Amplifier, but that one does not have dedicated sub output.

At the time CRZ was under warranty, so I didnt want to cut any wires for amp.

Stereo still works ok. Don't even need anything louder.
