Very nice. I'm jealous and can't wait to get some tunes into mine. Where did you hide the amp(s)?

Up on the firewall to the far left. Right where your left foot is at. I plan on moving it, but there just isn't a lot of room in the Jeep. I made the box for the speakers and could barely make the 1 cubic foot of space needed for both subs.

Space is at such a premium in these things. Every time I come up with a box design I find a problem with it in some way. I forgot to ask you... how does it sound? I have those subs in another truck with a lot of space and they sound great.

I've got a bass tube in my tj and its nice because it doesn't take up much space and I wired the amps to fit under my rear seat. Space is definitely tough! Recovery gear or good music oh the decisions.

I was actually browsing Bazooka tubes (for the first time in 15 years) thinking that would make a nice option if you could disconnect it and pull it out if need be. What size did you get and how does it sound?

I'll have to check tomorrow the size I can't remember off hand but I've got a disconnecting wire on the right side of my insta trunk so it takes seconds to take out. Mine is a kicker bass tube and it's about 12 years old and still sounds great! Maybe not like having two 12s but for the small tj it's great

I ran a kicker 12 L7 for a while. The box was from side to side in the back of the tub. but it hit like crazy. I decided no more subs for me. I have a ghetto computer speaker box setup that I can plug in now looks sweet though. I recently used my old box for a mount for a bench vise.

It sounds good. I am very happy with it. I like that it is super easy to take in and out. My Jeep is a daily driver and I do not need tools when I am running around town. Whenever I do go out of town or on a road trip the box comes out and the tools go in. The box interior came out to be 1.01 cubic feet and the subs need at least .5 cubic feet per sub.
