Thanks for a great laugh.

I guess the poor guy was never able to get a good internet connection in months......Glad you had a good connection and were able to share your install success......

Mykll As promised, I have some pictures. Decided to install a 12" sub. Surprisingly it only took seconds to install. Because of that you can easilly test a few different spots.

Here it is installed in that hole on the dash. I think perhaps a smaller 6" would provide for a more factory finish installed look.

Attachment 65702

I installed it in between the seats in the center console cup holders.

Attachment 65703

Both of those install locations can sort of be un the way. But I found a nice location to tuck it out of the way. It took a few more seconds, but it has a cleaner look. Notice how the warming glow from the Pentastar comes up all the way through the gear shift.

Attachment 65704

After a few tests, I couldn't tell any sound improvements. In fact, depending on the install location and the direction of the AC vents, I noticed a slight paper rustle but was unable to track down the source.

Also I am not sure how well the sub would handle the Texas heat. But at least I didn't have to use Velcro this time.

Mykll Guess I could put up a pic, but would have to stop by Subway first.

Jma20a still no pics?

No way

I agree - I bought a shallow mount 8" Kenwood and after buying and checking the specs found that the center console is not suited for it- just not enough volume in there- like less than half what is needed.
Now it will physically fit in there- and surely a 10" would also but just barely and would sound silly.
Also unless you were just going to use the flimsy plastic console liner(which would sound like a pile or crap) as a sub enclosure you would have to build a very complicated enclosure to cram into the console which would take several days not hours.

i'm gonna call BS on that one. an hour! some of the better skilled people who replaced the console sub took at least 2 hours just to get the the point when the extra plastic inside cut away to fit even just a factory sized replacement sub. than you have to factor in the wires and everything involved in finishing the install and than putting it all back together and working. sorry to put you in the spot but pics or it did not happen.

flyin-lowe It's been three months and still no pictures, where I come from if there are no pictures it didn't happen.

JeepJLBrandon I thought about trying this with some memphis audio shallow mounts....the cost kind of made me not try it though. Glad to see someone else achieved this

just checked that out,looks interesting,did you have to modify anything to fit it, do you think 2 would fit under the seat

Jeepn It Real well right after I typed the last reply the internet kicked the upload away. Im sorry guys im going to have to wait to get to a friends house with lined internet. stay tuned
04-20-2011 04:21 PM
Jeepn It Real Alright I am trying to upload pics right now. It is going very slow but hopefully they get uploaded tonight. I will let you all know when the pics come up. Thank you for the patience.

deathphoenix99 Can't wait to see this.

Jeepn It Real I am at work right now but when I get home I will try to get some posted. Please be paitient as I said before my internet is junk when uploading pics. I can tell you now that I put an MTX road thunder 200 watt RMS 400 watt Peak into the console. For optimum performance though I am going to need a shallow mount due to the MTX being a little to big for the air space. It still sounds good and doesnt take up any space. Its more of a setup for people that want to save as much space as possible but wants to have a little LOWS added to your system. its not for SPL Goers. I will try to upload pics tonight.

blkrubi88 Welcome to the forum! Pics would be nice!
04-19-2011 07:14 PM
Pezkng Would like to see. I have a custom box holding two 10" kenwood speakers with a 500 watt pushing them. The only thing about it is when i have my 1 yr old in the jeep cant turn up to loud but my 6 yr old loves it
04-19-2011 07:07 PM
Scoob How does it have enough air space to work properly? Most 10" subs want AT LEAST .35 cubic feet to sound right. I dont think the console is even .1 Cf.
04-19-2011 06:32 PM
doclouie Yes please show.
04-19-2011 06:17 PM
2004 Rubicon Yeah i would like to se how that worked and do it up myself. I put a 10 kicker in a truck box behind my back seat but it takes up all the trunk space which isnt much lol

danieldlg_13 I would like to see it!

I DID IT!! 10" SUB in the Center Console

Alright I am new to this forum but have looked around a lot. I was getting tired of having my rear seat removed just to get good bass. I had a 15" Kicker SoloBaric in the rear. Yes it hit real hard but I wanted my seat back so I devised a plan. I looked around to try and replace the sub in the center console like so many other people have. The biggest I heard of someone putting in without too much mods was an 8" sub. I wanted at least a 10". So I did it. It only took about an hour to do. If anyone wants to know how to do it let me know. I will post pics soon. But bear with me as my internet is wireless and doesnt like uploading pics.
