Subs in Jeep

I searched for this and haven't come up with much, do any of you guys have subwoofers in your jeep (aftermarket) ones, if so is your head unit the stock on or after market

if it's the stock head unit how did you go about hooking it up

all responses appreciated

thanks!

i have kenwoods in the bar and dash and an 8in powered sub (bass tube) in the trunk. it leaves me with space still back there and sounds really good. i would recommend an aftermarket head unit tho. you will gain a considerable amount of sound quality over the stock one. plus the ease of installation

Threw some Boston Acoustics in the dash and soundbar, replaced the headunit and added a downfiring 10w3 to the trunk with a JL TMA 320.4 under the back seat.

10 inch pioneer low profile sub in my rear seat. It's the best mod I ever did - sounds great, invisible to thieves, and leaves me plenty of storage space.

I would definitely look into building your own sub box for the rear seat. I would look at the ones made by 33 engineering and then go down to your local home depot and radio shack to get the parts and build your own. I just ordered a set of four 5 1/4 infinity kappas; the 4x6 to 5 1/4 is an easy conversion from what ive ready. I'm trying to come up with a way to mount my 12" solo baric L7 but I think it will be a bit much. Crutchfield has had a few write ups about wrangler systems see if you can get any suggestions from those.

I think what he is getting at here is how to hook up a system to the factory head unit.Yes you get better sound quality from a larger system with an aftermarket head unit but sometimes that isn't in the budget.You will need either an RCA converter that hooks to your radios speaker wires or use the high input on the amp if it has one.The newer amps do not have high inputs on most of them only RCA inputs so if that is the case you have to have the RCA converter.It hooks to the speaker wires and reduces the signal strength because the RCAs use a low power signal were your factory speaker wires are feeding out around 12watts per channel.Anyway if you get an amp with a high input use it or if you have one without get the converter.The rest is up to you on were you want the sub and so on.

I believe you can find the adapter for your sock head unit on Crutchfield if you are gonna keep it. It is so easy to replace it though. I have 1700 watts and a 10 speaker system, a little overkill but I wanted to hear my music with my top off over my 33's. spent about 500.00 total and most of it was purchased of ebay. I'm running the plastic speaker enclosures that they have in the four wheel parts and quadratech mags. It's the one that has a 8 in sub and 6/1/2 speaker combined. It's loud however that 10 in sub in the seat has alot more thump in it if u have the time skill and patience to build one.

you can secure the headunit to some of the frame work behind it, and you can always bolt down the sub and amp.

You must live and park in a good part of town because you can bolt the head unit all you want and that just gives thieves a reason for destruction.I would rather they steal my CD player than bust every part of my dash into pieces and bolts/screws in a wooden box will rip right out if the low life is determined enough.

I live in Vegas and just have a detachable face that I always remove, had the same deck for over five years. The key is taking it with you and not letting everyone hear what you got in crappy nieborhoods.

thieves are looking to get in and out asap. if it doesn't come out right away they usually go on the the next car with a head unit. i take the face plate off and no one is going to steal a head unit without the face plate.

There are some self-amplified subs. Also, Memphis makes some very nice 5-way amps that have a D-class for a sub.

powered subs aren't that great. i think they are a bit over priced for the quality. boss has there line of powered subs that are nice, imo your beat off getting a real sub and amp.

I have component speakers that I built into the sound bar. Same with the front speakers. I have tweeters that I built into the vents and 5 1/4 mids in the spearker locations. I have 2 amps under the rear seat and a set of down fireing 10" subs behind the rear seat. All my speakers and amps are audiobahn, my head unit is a Kenwood. I installed it all myself. Also have a 10 disc changer that I installed in the middle console. Been that way for 6 years now.

i got a pioneer head unit wit detachable face ....i took out the back seat seeing i never used it once in 4 yrs lol and built a custom box that i put 2 12inch kicker comps in mounted the amp on the back of the box... and built another box to cover the sub box to bolt to the jeep and secure the amp from sight and got a lip to come down in front of the subs so even if they unscrew the subs from the box they aint commin out unless they unbolt the cover box which is not easy, litertally takes me 15 mins to unbolt it lol
