the way i see it, you need a system even if you want to hear NPR over the gangsta rap being blared out of the Frosted Flakes themed impala in the next lane. i say go for it, and play some george strait outta that beast!

No, just being a 4dr JK does a good enough job of that.












I'm just kidding!

Many 03-06 TJ's and Rubicons came from the factory with what Jeep calls a premium sound system with center console sub woofer. Mine has it, although I had to swap out all the speakers for it to sound halfway decent. So, the correct answer is "no".

If you want killer tunes in your Jeep, by all means get them. Who cares what anybody thinks. Including people that post ignorant statements like I started this post with.

You are correct to assume I've never taken the seat apart. I can tell you it's quite uncomfy for long trips and hard to sit on as the bottom is a wood box from what I can tell. It also does not rattle and sounds quite good IMO. I know there are a few write ups on how to do it, but from what I remember it's quite extensive. I do love it has it hides it from people creeping on the Jeep and frees up that much more storage space.

Thanks!
My father-in law is an audio engineer that loves to tinker everytime we get a new vehicle. I told him to build me a sub. that looks like a fire-extinguisher- it could be out in broad daylight and no one would know what it is. And its not Mall Crawler! LOL. It can be done- he built me a sound tube once about that size. He also built a sub for his convertible that looks like a windscreen. Handy guy to have around....

Amazing

It is amazing how people will abuse themselves (and those around them) for some obscure reason. It isn't a matter of what it appears to be, or how it looks, or "is it cool". It really doesn't matter what I, or anyone else, thinks. It is what physically is mandated to happen as a result of what a person's actions are.

You might just want to do a little research on what is really happening or you will be spending your middle and older age asking "HUH????", missing out on important conversations and adding $$$$ to the pockets of those investing in hearing aid companies.

And now anyone can go ahead and blaze away with all the flames, and inane comments, they want. It won't change one iota of damage done to your hearing.

For those that might want to do some research:


Exerpt:
Combined low frequency and steady noise exposure caused significantly increased hearing thresholds verified by tonal audiometry as well as deteriorated intelligibility of whispered speech in comparison with the isolated industrial noise exposure. The differences enlarged with the length of exposure.

AND


 
When hearing is reduced at 3kHz and below, conversation is significantly interfered with.

You probably shouldnt live life then because stuff happens in your life that isnt good for you. Don't eat good food because its unhealthy, hell don't drive a Jeep because its unsafe.

No offense but bass isn't going to kill your hearing. Hear is a tip.... DON'T BLAST IT!
Besides if listening to music is bad for you, then c'est la Vie. I don't give two rats arses. Oh and my hearing is superb, I can hear people whispering from across large rooms and I've been exposed to copious amounts of 5.56 NATO rounds going off.

What did you say?!?? I can't hear you!!
I blast music all the time and have been around about 150 different cannon firings (and by around I mean part of the team loading the cannon) I hear just fine. When im 50 and have hearing issues, ill get a hearing aid my dad has one. Big deal. I love music and I love it loud

No... it's your Jeep! Just like someone said above, the people here aren't gonna see your Jeep. If it's your DD and/or you're a sound system kinda person, go for it. Just make sure it's secure.
