02WranglerTJ Much thanks for everyone on the forum....ended up picking Pyramid WX65X for dirt cheap about 16 bucks shipped. Everything is buttoned up now, easy install. But i'm already missing the bass of the stock sub!

I'm not sure but on this link it shows it's a 6.5 but if you reference it anywhere else on the internet it's 6 inches.

GoldTJ I used an MB Quart mid-bass driver,which was a perfect fit,other than having to make new holes.Since I am Caucasian,over 40,hate rap,and mainly listen to Classic Rock and Classic Country,I utilized the factory amp.Worked out fine,sounds great,and since I run without doors and top as much as possible,that leaves at least one less 'STEAL ME" item to have to worry about!

RollWave I spent a couple hours reading old threads on this same topic a few months ago and decided on this: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=290-352. I had to cut/grind a lot more of the ribs in the stock enclosure than I expected but it will fit and sounds great.

PTaylor DVC = Dual Voice Coil.

You do not need one to replace the original. It would be nice, but not required.

I put in a Kicker compVT65 shallow mount in mine and drive it with a cheap Boss amp, all for under $100 easily and it sounds 100 of times better than original.

I don't think you can wire in an Ipod jack to the factory radio.

You can replace the factory radio with something better that had this option already. most have some type of cable coming out the back that you can run to the glove box. you can plug in the ipod to that and store/lock it in the glove box out of sight.

Or, most have some AUX port on the front that allows you to plug the ipod into...

By the way what does d.v.c. mean? Also does anyone know if i can some how wire an ipod jack to the factory radio?
