Speaker Box Help

Anyone ever seen one of these? Supposedly came from the factory on my brothers. 1999.

The sub is blown.

Anyone know what this is? Is it the amp?

WaterDR 12-29-2012 04:42 PM

Trying to decide if we should pitch it and start over or just replace the sub.

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.

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 :)

I would replace the sub and go from there.

WaterDR 12-29-2012 09:47 PM

That is my thought too.

WaterDR 12-29-2012 09:51 PM

Don't know what ohm the speaker is. Anyone know how to find out?

Should be labeled in the back near the connection points.

Plowboy1970 12-29-2012 09:54 PM

It might be marked on the speaker. But I bet it is 8 ohm.

Jaxon1023 12-29-2012 09:55 PM

Nice setup. I'll have to look for one

UFOtestpilot 12-29-2012 09:58 PM

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.

WaterDR 12-29-2012 09:59 PM

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

I believe all automotive speakers are 8 ohm. 4 ohm are used in house speakers.

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

WaterDR 12-29-2012 11:16 PM

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

Its the other way. Home speakers are almost always 8ohm, car speakers are 4, and some subwoofers are 2. When you lower the ohms, you put extra load on the amp, but get nearly double the power output. You just need to be sure the amp can take a low ohm load without overheating.

I knew it was something like that. Dang dyslexia.
