is that center console going to be airtight and if so will it have the correct amount of airspace for a JL Audio sub?? I have been wondering about replacing mine, but if it itsn't sealed or is way to small you will just waste your money and have worse sound than you do now.
I don't believe you can fit the 8" sub in the center console without completely modifying the console. The 6.5 is the more drop in friendly option. Either or...
The 8W0 sub in either 4 or 8 ohm is rated for 75w. I would personally run a 300/4 JL amp. Run 2 channels to the front speakers and bridge 2 channels into the sub but knock those 2 channels back a notch. That will require new front speakers and I would choose a 5.25 driver. You need as much sound as possible coming from the front 2 channels. Jeeps suck for sound worthiness
I lend myself to my hobbies. While I was in college I did work for a stereo install shop doing easier installs when they needed an extra hand. I have a fondness for loud stereos and built a bumpin setup in Double Duty. I can draw out a diagram if you are interested in getting your wrangler to bounce over rocks
I figured you were getting mighty close to completion. I have been watching your progress, as you allow us to behold. Your rig is looking good boss, and can't wait till you get r done. One of these days, we will all have to hook up, and have one hech of a wheeling adventure. Keep up the good work, you'll get there.

I agree, I did work at Circuit City for almost 5 years doing installs and the like, an 8" sub would need some moding to get it in there. not to mention the fact the factory system is basicly free air. Not just any ol 6.5 will work, you can't just grab a set of infinitys and plug em in, you need a 6.5 replacement sub speaker. I'd almost recomend a Bazooka Tube behind the rear seat, not my first choice but its nice for the fact it is removeable and only straps in, not to mention that it sounds a little better than that factory setup and install is more twards the easy side.
Mr. Cliff I like the fact you do know what you were talking about too, any Tom, Dick, or Harry can give advice but it takes a big red dog to give the right advice.
I agree, it would take a lot of custom work to get the air space right in the center console. I like the idea of the Bazoka Tube. There is also the Infinity Basslink, and you could go with a small box and sub. It really depends on how much you want to invest into this. An 8" will fit in the console but it will take lots of fiberglass and time.......just my 2 cents
I have a tuffy but not the speaker console. I was thinking about getting my old console and putting like a 6.5 or 8 inch sub in there. Anybody ever done this or thought about doing this?
I don't know how it would work or how much trouble it would be but I know JL Audio used to make a 6 inch sub that actually didn't sound bad for a 6. You might wanna check in on that and see what you can find out.
