|Jma20a||with the Texas heat there is no need for them to toast the sub for you, let nature do the work.|

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

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.

|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|

I really wanna see this, it sounds like a big project im suprised it only took an hour.
I put in a kenwood ksc-sw10 recently and would definatly recommend it if space is an issue (which it is for all of us). Its an amp and a sub in one tiny unit that i fit under my back seat. its nice cause it doesnt take up any trunk space or leg room but still is a very noticable improvement.

|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.|

|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.|

|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|

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.
