So I have a 2001. There was an option that year for a factory sub in the center console I believe. My Jeep does not have that. I'm interested in adding one. Anyone have suggestions on brand or anything?
I want to replace my 4 factory speakers and add that sub.

2. used as a short substitute for a negative clause

I had the previous Kenwood model that had a 6.5" round driver and a 6.5" passive radiator in one box with an amp. It sounded great under the driver's seat. The pic that Neil F. posted is the later model with an oval driver & oval passive radiator. I haven't heard one of these yet, but I'd like to try one. It's a good design for a jeep that already has limited space.
The new one is the KSW-10. I had a KSW-1 also but it stopped working a few months ago. I got new new style in part because the same wiring plugged in. I don't know and maybe it was my imagination but I thought the old one had more bass. No matter, just got rid of the stock head unit and the speaker level inputs to the sub and got a new head unit with RCA ouputs. Wow the sub sounds so much better now. Much better bass. (Note I also have the factory sub enclosure with a 7" Bazooka sub in it)

I finally just gave up. Took my Polk out of the center console and put a kicker in the back. Going to build a new box around the polk to take up less space then will put the Kicker in the car... or something who knows.
you can build a box and fit it in the center console. I just did this last month. It is a little difficult because of all the angles, but it is do-able. I was able to fit an 8" kikker in the center console and i put the amp under the drivers seat. It isnt going to thump, but it does offer a little bit of a bass boost that helps the overall sound.
or full power would go to the Bazooka and my fader and bass would do nothing to control how much bass I sent to it. I do not want this. What's the scoop? By the way, I have a 2011 JKU with the non-Infinity radio.
that is completely not true. All you need is a part called a "line out converter." Any real installer/sales guy would know what it is if you asked them. Tipically cost around $20 retail.
All it does is tap the speakers leads (usual two sets of speakers for best performance, one left, one right) and creates a low level signal that than can be sent to your amplifier through a set of RCA's You can tap the wires you need right behind the radio, and run your RCA's to your amp.
Let me know if this helps, and I can give you more info if you need or want to go this way.
Since I plan to add only one amp and one sub-woofer, this would do the trick in spades. I am indeed very interested in the $20 option over the $99 converter in the link, but will there be a sound difference in quality going the $20 route over this one? If I can get the same sound for $20, I'd rather spend the rest on my upcoming gear change.
