Sub bigger than 10"?

So I've searched all over the forum looking for any posts about anyone putting a subwoofer larger than 10" and I can't seem to find anything. Can I then conclude that it is not possible to put a 12" or 15" in a Wrangler (with the backseats still in)? Has anyone seen any custom jobs that someone was able to pull it off? I like that low low bass I'm sorry if there is a post confirming this but I could not find it.

I have a 12 in my jku and plenty room for another twelve, you could fit 2 15" in a 2 door but you will most likely have to get a box.

How ever I swapping my one 12 for 2 10" just because I want a faster base.

2 15"s in a two door with the backseats in? I know this would not fit in the trunk, where would they be placed? Apparently my imagination is shot...

Might fit but won't sound right unless if you have 5000 watts of power and at the very least 22" chrome rims

Pulling your chain, my stock stereo sucks even with the Punch speakers.

I bought alpine type r speakers for my last car with a stock stereo, didn't do much. Than I grabbed a brand new alpine head unit and the difference was night and day. I strongly believe the head unit is first when it comes to improving quality.

You could easily fit a 12 in back. You'll need a sealed box probably so it needs less space but depending on what music you're listening to, a sealed enclosure might work better anyway.
