|Rubiconlj||I would be interested if you tried this replacement speaker in the original enclosure. I recently had a new sub installed in the original enclosure in the console for the very same reasons as you and it still sounds like crap. I honestly think its the original enclosure that was made only for OEM speaker/amp combo. I'm lost as to what to do now. It sounds so bad I just want to disconnect the sub. Did you have any luck?|

Depending on how much you want to spend, my recommendation would be to get a Kicker 6.5" CompVT subwoofer and a small amp to drive it. With a little bit of plastic shaving, you can make the CompVT fit into the stock enclosure, then install the amp under the driver's dash or near the subowoofer enclosure if there is room.
You can pick the sub up for around $80 and a little Kicker 2-channel amp can be picked up for around $90

Need Help with Factory Sub
I have an 04 TJ Sahara. I just swapped out the factory deck and front and sound pod speakers. My sub works, but sounds horrible.
What are my possible solutions? The first thing I am going to do is disconnect the sub. The problem is I was hoping to keep the sub in the center console due to size concerns. I dont want to build any kind of enclosure for the back and under this seat is not an option. I actually use the back area of my Jeep and I have a 7 year old, who rides in the back.
The new Deck that I installed is an Alpine CDE-HD137BT-CD. It is pretty sweet with Bluetooth phone and audio streaming.
I installed 4 Polk Audio DB 521's. The fronts mounted with Nalin brackets in the dash and the second pair is in the sound pods.
The problem is the Sub sounds like crap, beyond crap. Im not sure if its torn or blown out, but it sounds awful.
Any help is appreciated.
