Sound system
 
So two questions first what do y'all think is best subwoofer case 2 singles or a double box ? And where do you guys/gals think is the best place to mount a amp so it's outta the way

JL Audio is one of the best brands along with Memphis and MTX. I keep my amp shoved under my back seat. I have a 12 behind the back seat and a 10 on the back seat.

Your gonna take up some space with 2 subs. I mounted my amps under the back seat and bulit this bad ass sub box.

1BadAssJeep 03-11-2012 10:31 PM

As far as boxes go, it's all about what your sub calls for dimension wise. If I could, I would get two 10s in a ported box behind the back seat.

ported boxes call for a lot of air space.

1 quality sub Champion Series PRO | Pioneer Electronics USA
for example will outdo any double set of cheaper subs. If you have the power to push it.

Amp under the rear seat is a good spot.


Im currently running 1 12" champion Pioneer, 4 Rockford Fosgate 6x8s, HiFonics Zues 5 channel, Pioneer 4400dvd in my Expedition.

Putting together a new system for Jeep around T400 & T1000 Rockford Amps, and the Pioneer Champion 10". Going to run it using this if I ever get my custom dash design finished and ordered.

As for front and rear I have not decided. If I wait for my dash ill do 5x7s front & rear.

I've got a single rockford punch 12" mounted behind the back seat off to one side and my 500 amp under the back seat. This is a great set up without taking up a huge amount of space while still hitting good with top off at 60mph. This actually hits harder than my old Memphis 12s with 1100w amp.

Double D Fab

I been working on a rough sketch, to place a double din radio above the stock location. Then move 4 gauges to the left of that area in a 2 by 2 configuration. Once I get my measurements done I will post a pic.

I have my amp under the back seat, adn behind the seat sit 2 12s.

Its awesome in the summer with the top off, I remove the back seat and set the subs facing up and twards the front, loud as hell and everyone looks (Jealous im in a Jeep/ or jealous I can blast Five Finger Death Punch so loud with no distortion? Who cares!).

DasfieldmarshelsYJ 03-14-2012 08:01 PM

Like ur style^

You need to get a Quadratec catalogue. They are free
Jeep Stereo & Audio, Jeep Speakers and Jeep GPS & Electronics - Quadratec

I only have 2-6x9's and 2-5 1/4's to a 300 watt amp. More room for tools and trail/recovery gear :D

Check out Q-tecs stuff. I have had some good dealing with them, and they get me stuff fast (I am on the South Eastcoast and they are in PA)
They have more than what is on the link I posted above

Master4th 03-14-2012 10:30 PM

Yeah thats a big issue for me as well. I would love to put in 2 nice 10s but there will be no space left.
