Just bought my first Jeep, 2001 TJ, 3 weeks ago and I am fixing all the problems one by one. The subwoofer is blown, sounds awfull.
I have to pull the center console but have questions.
1. they say to pull up on the automatic shift handle. Does the transfer case knob slide right off too? Are they easy to put back on?
2. The Chiltons I have is crap, the drawing they show doesn't match my center console. How to I remove it? I found a screw under the plastic cup holder.
Inside the storage area I found 2 philipps screws and 3 or 4 screws that I have never seen before. They have a hollow center and what looks like 3 slots. Doesn't look like torx. Do I need to buy a tool to remove them?
A lot of people talk about the super cheap Pyramid subwoofer as a decent replacement.
Other people say the Kicker replacement is best. With the Kicker replacement you might get better performance with the 2-ohm or the 1-ohm replacement. Others will probably comment and tell you which speaker is best for the subwoofer replacement.
It really depends on how hard you like to drive your subwoofer. If you like to drive it really hard, then the proper Kicker 2-ohm subwoofer, might be best. If you just want a quick cheap replacement and you don't drive it hard, then the pyramid will suffice.
Just replaced the stock blown sub with the Pyramid. Sounds awesome and easy to install. I had a hard time finding wiring pics so here is what i found to work after trial and error.
$20.00 invested for a 16 year old kids car.
Cleaned and bedlined mirrors. $6.00.
Fender flares next.

If you push components too hard they blow. Usually they start to make a crackling noise first indicating damage before they go. If you use an aftermarket head unit and turned up the bass boost and things like that it can add more stress.
What ohm sub is the best for stock setup? I read in a previous post 1ohm or 2 ohm? Also if you change out the stereo to a little more powerful stereo say a 20wx4 alpine radio with no amps what ohm is the best?
The ohms will be determined by how many speakers being used and how you wire the speakers in question, so the formula will work in reverse: Figure out your output ohm given the wiring plan and select speakers to match.
What ohm is the factory sub that I have in my 2001? Mine is also blown and would like to replace it right now I have the fuse pulled for it cause it sounds that bad.
I don't have a factory sub so I can't say for sure but I would assume it would be a 4ohm speaker. It should say on the back, or on the basket somewhere. You could also shop for a replacement by vehicle and it should turn up a proper ohm rating.
For some, it is easier to kill the light inside of themselves than it is to fight the darkness all around them.
