If you need non-factory radio testers, let me know. I have an aftermarket Kicker sub that I am not fond of, have been wanting to replace.

|JKS||subscribed. This is the sub solution I've been waiting for.|

Couple more- one showing that the cover/flap still lays flat with the sub under it.
The second is the bass booster. Its on the driver's side dash just to the right/bottom of the steering wheel. (My Cb sits right under the steering wheel). This little dash panel costs maybe $25 to replace so cutting into it with a Dremel isn't a biggie. Love my Cb here.

Sorry so long since an update. Pesky jobs keep getting in the way:
We've made a couple of minor design changes so a new prototype is being made. But my sub has been in since July. (Seriously; its been that long? Where does the time go?). We used a compact Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 sub amp- which fit perfectly on the side of the driver's side door footwell area and also installed it with the optional remote bass boost knob, which allows up to 18bd of bass boost at 45Hz (since the stock HU only boosts the bass at a much higher frequency). Overall I am very pleased with this set-up for the money.
Gunner- if you're going to Seven Oaks it would be perfect- we can test against your Alpine. I plan to test the sub. against several Jeeps at this event. I won't be able to record true audio sound via my Iphone but will get honest feedback documented.
Thanks for all your help (and patience) everyone.

|Gunner||I'm interested if it will get the big lump out of my rear cargo area. I bought the 4 door and have that silly sub sitting right there in the doorway. I am not a stereo buff but like to listen sometimes. If this sounds as good as the factory one does and gives me back that space then I'm in for one when your ready.|

Having toyed around with subwoofers in different locations in my JKU I have to say that the cargo area is less than ideal for the soundstage. I can live with my shallow-mount 10" downfiring sub back there, though in that configuration the carpet removes a bit of the tightness of the bass. Ok for country, rap, etc, but not for reproducing a kick drum. A side or upfiring 10" Polk Momo sub I also have sounds like crap with the top off at any speed over about 25mph.
My next project will involve a glassed enclosure with an 8" sub under the driver seat. I am thinking that will end up giving the best results without having to adjust gain and eq each time the hardtop goes on or off.

Sorry for no updates. Been out wheeling so I've haven't had much time to tinker. The sub is in and there is plenty of bass. But.....we'll have to re-work it a little. Though it fits perfectly in the hollow- I didn't realize the stock cover has an indentation in it. We'll have to make adjustments. My FIL is in town briefly next weekend so I'll post more detail at that point (and some pics).
We did toy with the idea of the stock sub spot- but the shape is all wrong. Plus you have room for only one speaker. While yes- this doesn't fire down either- there is some resistance and you have more wattage.

My concern is there will be little to no bass response with the top off. In my 2 door I put my 10" sub back there behind the seat and there is a significant difference as opposed to having it in it's normal spot, directly behind the driver and passenger.
I wonder if using the factory enclosure with a better sub would be a better option - you would still have storage.

I think I am going to do the full sound system upgrade in a few weeks which will include and LC7i, alpine amp, kicker subwoofer, polk speakers, and polk tweeters.
My question is, has anyone ever run the Kicker CompRT67 ? Spec wise it should fit in the stock enclosure. I have already dynamated the interior of my enclosure but if I do the upgrade I'd pull it completely and dynamat underneath the enclosure as well to help with vibration. So if anyone has any experience maintaining the stock sub enclosure any advice would be appreciated.

|pants on head||
I guess I'll ask this question again: will that box fit ok behind the back seat of a 2dr jk?
