I knew it was something like that. Dang dyslexia.

WaterDR I actually found a jeep accessory book from 1999. It's called a Sound Deck and has a built in 50 watt amp.

Ahhhh......no. You can get all different ohm speakers.

WaterDR There does not appear to be any data on the speaker but a model number which I have not been able to locate anywhere.

UFOtestpilot Also, I noticed that quadratec has a plug-n-play replacement for $90. Probably not audiophile grade, but that amp probably won't run too much speaker anyhow.

Jaxon1023 Nice setup. I'll have to look for one
12-29-2012 10:54 PM
Plowboy1970 It might be marked on the speaker. But I bet it is 8 ohm.
12-29-2012 10:52 PM
UFOtestpilot Should be labeled in the back near the connection points.
12-29-2012 10:51 PM
WaterDR Don't know what ohm the speaker is. Anyone know how to find out?
12-29-2012 10:47 PM
WaterDR That is my thought too.
12-29-2012 08:44 PM
doclouie I would replace the sub and go from there.
12-29-2012 08:42 PM
IcarusLSC See how sealed it is, and if good (most likely is sealed fine) replace the sub. Perhaps find a small digital amp to replace that one if you need a bit more power? Looks cool
12-29-2012 06:26 PM
Plowboy1970 It was an accessory sold by Jeep when the TJ was out. I see this sell on Ebay for $75-150 Replace the sub. But is it not just 8"? I have never heard one play. So I don't know how hard it will hit.
12-29-2012 05:42 PM
WaterDR Trying to decide if we should pitch it and start over or just replace the sub.
12-29-2012 05:41 PM
WaterDR Anyone know what this is? Is it the amp?

The sub is blown.
