2004 Jeep wrangler X Sound System

I have an 04 wrangler x and im looking to upgrade the entire sound system. I have already bought new 6.5" speackers for the rear and 5.25" for the front. I looking at a new head unit, amp, and subwoofer. is it feesible to replace the sub in the center console with something bigger? is there anyplace to keep an amp and subwoofer dry from water damage?

Id like to have more power with this system but i dont need to go deaf ether. Any sugggestions would be greatly appriecated.

I am a big Alpine fan. So I would look at Alpine Head units. Whatever the brand just look for one with 3 pre amp outs. (so you have more control over your system) AS far as the amp and sub are concerned......The Amp I would look for a 5 channel if it is in your budget. This way you could have cleaner power going to your speakers, and power for your sub. I would look at adding a small sub box behind the rear seat or in the bottom of the rear seat. (do a search on this site and you will find a link)
As far as mounting your amp. I have two amps under my rear seat. I am in the process of mounting them under my drivers seat on slide out drawers. If you have any other questions just shoot me a PM.

I have always loved the sound of audiobahn subs, i have a 10" in a box behind the rear seat and a 1800 watt amp for it. as for speakers in the roll bar i went with infinity kappa perfect component speakers with an amp just for them. i would suggest getting a head unit form alpine, pioneer, panasonic, or clarion. if you go to crutchfield.com they have a very large selection of audio equipment, and they are more than happy to recomend what stuff you will need, i do a lot of business through them, and have never been disappointed.

I have a sub behind my rear seat its a 10" kicker cvx .... it comes in a box that fits perfect inthe back with room to mount the amp on the back of the box....the only modifying I did with the box is build 3 inch "feet" for it to keep it off the ground if my heap gets flooded again
