Subwoofer enclosure needed in console?
 
I have the console with the grille for a sub, but due to bad info being given to the PO, the sub was never installed. I am considering upgrading my audio somewhat, and was told that I need an enclosure for a sub to put it in the console. Is that accurate? I just have a cavern inside the console now.... I will be having stuff installed, since audio work isn't my specialty. Any input is appreciated. :) Thanks!

Yeah, I believe there's an enclosure that houses the sub that goes inside the console. Not sure where the amp is located...but you may need one of those too.

Thanks Sentenced, I definitely need an amp, now I gotta find a sub enclosure... Any ideas?

So for my sub i just installed I got the Boss Audio BASS1200, had it in two days, it sounds great! You're having it installed by a professional or someone so my installation process isn't a big deal but it didn't take too long and wasn't very hard, It hits pretty good and fits right under my rear seat, here's a link to the one i got Amazon.com: Boss BASS1200 10-Inch Low Profile Amplified Subwoofer with Remote Subwoofer Level Control: Automotive you'll also need the 8 gauge wiring kit that it says down below total came to 176 and it's well worth it

How did you get a box to fit under the rear seat? Could you post some pics I was also hoping to get subs in my jeep

I'd really like something that fits in the console, like the factory sub. My kids will gripe even more if their butts are thumpin'..... :)

Your console itself should act as somewhat of an inclosure. Maybe i'm wrong but isn't that like putting a box inside of a box?

InfernoGirl 03-24-2010 02:08 PM

Well, that's kind of what I thought. I was hoping someone who had a factory sub would maybe post a pic of theirs, or enlighten me further however they could.

I'd be afraid it would rattle and/or sound like crap...the enclosure should really be sized appropriately for the speaker otherwise it won't perform like it should. Not to mention I think the factory design uses a sealed enclosure (I could be wrong...never had mine apart) whereas by putting the sub right inside the console, it'd be more of a ported enclosure. ...I've never really dealt with ported enclosures, but iirc if the port isn't sized properly, you will be less than pleased with the end product.

For getting a stock enclosure...possibly try daveysjeeps.com. When I needed something he got back with me in under 24 hours.

You could also post in the wanted section...someone who upgraded to a larger setup may be willing to part with their old factory stuff.

Check out this thread. it shows exactly what the stock subwoofer setup should be:

Submit a request at DaveysJeeps.com if you haven't yet... might link him to the pic in that thread linked to here if he's unsure of what you're talking about.

i might have one for sale next week with a brand new speaker.. i waiting on a 10 inch shallow mount and box i just ordered to come in and when i get it hooked up if all sounds good enough i will part with the 6.5 inch and the inside encloser with the factory amp..

InfernoGirl 03-27-2010 10:28 PM

Cool, how much would you want for it? :) What speaker is in it?

VisionJinx 03-28-2010 07:05 PM

i will let you know this weekend when i get my other stuff (my original deal fell through but i have a good back up working now buddy at work has 2 10'' kickers for sale) the speaker in the console box is a 6.5 pyle deep bass handles 250 or 350 watts (cant remember) i would take $75.00 for all if i get the new stuff and it sounds good hooked up. i dont want crazy bass just something to make all the speakers sound good (jeeps suck at not having any bass)

InfernoGirl 03-28-2010 07:14 PM

'k, keep me posted, I have to find an amp and someone willing to install them for me..... :(

We have a perfectly good amp already sweetie. It's just what we need so no worries there.

VisionJinx 03-28-2010 11:08 PM

there is an amp built in on the console sub box already all you have to do is hook up the plug and your good to go i will send pics later this week (around wed) if you look at the link on the sub box you can see it also (few posts up)

InfernoGirl 03-29-2010 08:26 AM

Even cooler visionjinx, thanks! Let me know, you aren't that far from me, and the drive to Cinci is pretty nice from here... We can probably cruise over and pick it up. :D
