What the hell is this thing

I just stuck my head under the dash to replace a light buld and on the drivers side there is a big red box zip tied there.I think it's a power inverter I can't get a good look at it but i'm going to cut it down and find out.

Why would you want a amp on the stock stereo? There isn't a sub.

Yeah that label says Rockford Competition on it. So an amp it is.

Those don't look like stock speakers in the dash. Probably something aftermarket that the previous owner wanted to beef up a little bit.

its an amp, the previous owner might have had a different system and a small sub. does your TJ have one of those center consols with the built in sub? it could have been used for that.

mine is very shallow, not deep like my old jeep, and it has a speaker grill on the side of the console facing the driver side.

It also vibrates my butt

looks like a small 100ish watts amp to run the front or/and maybe rear speakers.. its cheap mood to do that helps with sound a bit.. that amp is possibly 50 bucks.. Check for wires around it.. Another thing it can be is a "voltage stabelizer" but i still havnt seen rockford make voltage stabelizers yet.. only capacitors but thats totally different story and different shape.
