JK subwoofer upgrade

I am upgrading the crappy stereo in my 2013 JK. I bought a double din Pioneer and Polk DB651s and DB6501s for speakers. What are you guys doing for bass? I want 2 10s probably?? Tell me about your subs and where you put them

I'm thinking about putting subs under the front seats. Anybody else have them there?

I have 2 Rockford fosgate 12's just in a regular enclosure. I have the amp mounted to the back of the seat. They sound good, but I am losing my trunk.

Rockford Fosgate P300-10 Punch Powered Loaded 10-Inch Subwoofer Enclosure

Mattk11 has an awesome underseat design for subs, but requires custom fiberglass fab....

After a recommendation from another forum user, and reading the reviews I figured I couldn't lose for $170 for a
Rockford Fosgate P300-10 Punch Powered Loaded 10-Inch Subwoofer Enclosure for my JKU. I haven't installed it yet, but plan to mount it right behind the narrow fold down seat with some sort of fastener that I could lock.

Cool thing about this is the remote control volume and the fact it easily unplugs to remove if necessary. The box seems well crafted and I also believe you can keep the existing sub working as well.

Two - 10" subwoofers loaded in a low profile JKU Subwoofer Box, and previously reviewed on this Wrangler Forum as great.

just pull the trigger on that box with helix B10's. Now I just need to find a amp to drive all of it. I'm thinking a 5 channel, but don't know yet

The Alpine PDX-V9 5-Channel amp(100x4+500watts/sub) is an excellent choice for the subwoofer, just not for the 60wattRMS Polk651. The Alpine puts out 100wattsRMS, and will blow out the Polk 651, although the Polk 6501's can handle it. I would never have recommended Polks for a powerful subwoofer. You will definitely want 100watt speakers to compliment the subwoofer. Unfortunately, Crutchfield sells the PDX-V9 for two hundred dollars more than everyone else. I paid like 350 for mine brand new.

I have the JL audio stealth box designed for the jeep wrangler JK. It has 1 10" sub and I'm running off a bridged JL amp. I'm happy with the sound. I listen to mostly country and it is more than enough for me.

When i upgraded my system i simply added an 8" Kicker sub and took out the piece of crap factory Alpine sub. I then had the installer Polyfill and Dynamat the sub enclosure. Now that my sub is powered properly my system absolutely booms. If i were you, i would spend my money on upgrading the factory speakers, installing a quality 5 channel 500w amp and then getting a new subwoofer.

The kicker sub i bought was $70 shipped from amazon.

If you don't want to change out your head unit and did the install yourself, you could do it all for less than $1000.
