Default Added weight from subs?

Has anyone noticed a difference in the drive of the cruiser since putting extra weight in the PT do to the subs weight?

KingKole02, what size sub are you considering to install, and how many? What about amps? I've gotta 10" with a 400W amp and a sealed box and it probably weighs about 20 lbs... which means no loss in acceleration. (03' Touring Edition)

I have a Boss 550 series amp. It probably weights 10 lbs. But my speaker is heavy, probably about 20-25 alone. Now with in in the box it wieghs near 35-40 at least. Its heavier then I thought it would be and as heavy as a friends 2 10's in a plexy box.

Reason I asked it because with it in, it made the rear have less of a roll effect in cornering. Just enough that it was noticeable for me. This is why I asked.
I will attempt to wieght tonigt for kicks while it is out.
Just Cruisin, 03 N/A auto. TE Steel Blue w/ pearl coat & chrome package. Too many extras to list, see pics
