My name is actually Hollis though, something I have seen even less often than Holly lol .
I like the speaker pod, looks like it would work amazingly well with a modest woofer and two passive radiators

|MagicMtnDan||Like the idea; waiting on the actual solution...|

No- but funny enough my MIL's name is Hollis. (Holly). You don't see that too often.
Won't be on the forum for a couple of weeks...

I am about to drop at least $1k on a sub and amp in the next month. Like many others who replied, I am really interested.

|suicideking||I've heard her prototype and it sounds really good! I didn't know a sub that small could sound so good. I always thought you needed a 10, 12"+ to get that kind of bass. They've come a long way with the compact subs.|

|scameron01||It would be cool to start a group buy here on the WF, I would definitely be in. I'll be in regardless!!|

|JeepHerz||Yes, it certainly booms. And I have the worst case scenario- 2 door JK soft top, no rear seat, stock HU. I can hear it plenty with the top off on the highway. Small, shallow drivers & speakers is what my FIL specializes in (and holds several patents on). When companies need serious bass in small spaces- they come to him for either design- or design and production. (You'd be surprised at whats really inside your brand name speaker box). Its a definite improvement over the Infinity system and Alpine. Small box- lots of bass.|

This seems awesome and I am in the process of overhauling my sound, so you've got my attention. The one question is, how does it sound? That's really all that matters to me.
Having it stealth and and such is awesome, but if it isn't a significant improvement in sound over the factory, it doesn't serve it's purpose.
Does it boom with the top off? It seems like a very small enclosure to get anything impacting from. Really curious, looks awesome btw.

Doesn't rattle one iota. We'll be supplying a high density thin foam backer (aka Dynamat) which each sub. we sell. In my 2012 I don't have carpet once you remove the stock tool enclosure- I believe earlier models have carpet underneath. The mat (or carpet) will prevent the sub. from rattling against the metal body. Once the sub. is bolted down using the existing hole it does NOT budge or rattle. I've rock crawled, driven at stupid speeds over bumps and thrown my Jeep over hills I probably shouldn't have- and its solid as a rock.
Now- once you put the cover back down- if you put something directly over the sub it can rattle because the bass moves it. But I consider that a positive.

|IrishRed||I've got plenty of mods to hold me off, I can wait. My only concern will be that this will rattle the hell out of my tool box its mounted under!|

Left the top down in the rain (oops) and everything got drenched. Sub made it through no issues.
|11-29-2013 02:59 AM|
|IrishRed||well, what happened?|

|MikeZagurski||so whats the deal? are these out? when will they be? BRILLIANT!|

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.
|09-25-2013 02:33 PM|
|JKS||subscribed. This is the sub solution I've been waiting for.|

|Gunner||Doc has me on a 5000' altitude limit after John Bull. If they release me I am gonna try to make it. Even if only for campfire time.|
|09-24-2013 01:45 PM|
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.|
