sound ordinance powered sub in console?

I was wanting to add a sub to my center console (it didn't have a factory sub) and ran across this one. I don't want to add anything behind the seat as I carry all my tools and gear all the time. After measuring the dimensions of the console I think it would fit after removing the insert. Has anyone tried this or is anyone using one?

Hmmmm. I wonder if it would fit. If you want to save another $30, there's also a scratch-and-dent option. If it fits in the console, who cares if it's scratched?!

I have read a ton of positive reviews and I think I may go for it. Even if it doesn't fit in the console it will definitely fit under the seat. So no one running one in their jeep?

I did a lot of searching and never ran across that. Its good to know that it will fit. Thanks for the link! I recently added 6.5 polks to the soundbar with only the head unit powering them and they sound great but I'm missing that low end. Looking forward to the install and keep us posted with your progress.

Your welcome! I kept my HU & replaced all the stock speakers w/Polks as well. I also did the Kicker plug n play for the subwoofer but will be replacing it. I will be installing the Alpine KTP-445U power pack along w/Sound Ordnance 8PTD. I had previously installed one of the Sound ordnances sub woofer in a Mazda B2300 & thought it did a really good job.

I have never seen the Alpine power pack before, it looks like it would be a nice touch to the new Polks. You don't have to have an Alpine hu to run it do you?

Never mind on the question. I did a little digging and found out you do. Oh well I just saved $180!

Actually, you do not have to have an Alpine head unit if you use the KTP-445U (U for Universal) Alpine KTP-445U "Power Pack" Upgrade any car radio to 45 watts RMS X 4 at Crutchfield.com ...it does require some wire cutting though if your doing like I am by keeping the original HU and a lot of individuals are not comfortable doing that. The KTP-445A Alpine KTP-445A Power Pack Upgrade your Alpine receiver to 45 watts RMS x 4 at Crutchfield.com is a Plug & Play (for Alpine HU's) which is a plus...very simple and clean.

On a side note: Just ordered my B-8PT Scratch & Dent $119.00

Do you think one of these would fit under either the front seat or rear seat? I'm anxious to hear the reviews on how it sounds.

Coastal....Worked well under the seat in my Mazda B2300 before my son took over the truck. I have read several post in this section where it was put under the seat (either front driver or rear bench) but depending on the year it may be a bit of challenge. I did a quick search hear in the Communications & Electronics section that may help if your up for some reading.

Try putting it on the firewall, behind the glove box (easy access), and keeps it up off the floor, in the event that you get in deep water, OR get drenched in rain.....Just a thought.

Had this same unit in my 06 console. Worked great. Decided to mount in back for ease of adjustment.

Forgot to mention how this unit performs. Sounds great in either spot and the dash controll is a really nice feature.
