I think I found a sub enclosure...
 
Hey Jeepers!

I'm finally getting around to doing the sound in my TJ and I chose everything I need. I already had a 10" Rockford Fosgate P2 that I want to put in but the enclosure I have now is way too big to fit behind the rear seat. I was on crutchfield, where I'm ordering the stereo and 4 speakers for the Jeep and they had this pretty small sealed enclosure.

It's a Sound Ordinance Bass Bunker. Here's the link:
Sound Ordnance™ Bass Bunker Sealed single 10" subwoofer enclosure (Model BB10-50S) - Reviews at Crutchfield.com

Can anyone tell me if the dimensions of this will fit in the Jeep?
Height: 11- 11/16"
Width: 12- 3/16"
Depth: 11- 9/16"
Second Depth: 8- 1/2"

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REPLY!!!!!

That would probably fit but it would be close. I measure about 12.5" of clearance back there.

Do you know if I can move the rear seat up a few inches? That way it can fit more comfortably.

If by move up you mean folding it forward, then sure. Otherwise you'd need to drill and move the brackets up accordingly.

I may be letting the cat out of the bag about being a redneck, but I got a set of 8" subs in a box, but the box was to big. So I took my chainsaw and "custom" fit it. It worked very well, till it was stolen.....Must be hard times if someone stole that redneck engineered enclosure.

HAHAH That's hilarious. But I don't think I'll go that route. I'm trying to figure out how much a custom box will be.

That should fit fine... I had a 12 in my jeep with a way bigger box and it fit.

Did it fit with the rear seat in the stock placement? I don't wanna move anything around.

I have two Apline 12s in my TJ with the rear seat. My dad and I built the box over a few days taking measurements as we went. The back part is slanted to contour to the rear seat. We used a heavy duty carpet to absorb water if any got on it. Door shuts with out any issues and locks. Check out these three links for sub enclosures for TJ's. Any questions let me know. Here a a few pics of the build process.

Thanks for the links but if I had the skills to make a box, I would. Also, those enclosures are way too pricey and I can probably just get a custom box from an audio shop for around $75.

Build yourself the under the seat sub. I made mine last summer and it sounds great, its hidden, and easy to make.

I thought about it but it really lowers the full capability of the sub. Plus, the sub i have now (Rockford Forsgate P2 10") isn't really shallow. Thanks for the tip though.

I hope this link works. I am extremely pleased with the sound for the money.

Basic carpentry skills, if you can measure and cut, then you could build a box. All it is is MDF wood, wood glue, caulk and screws.

danieldlg_13 03-22-2011 03:22 PM

Go to any local mobile audio store... not Best Buy or big chain like that, and they can usually build you one for real cheap. They take the dimensions for you and place it in there for you. Real easy.

ForumKing 03-22-2011 03:34 PM

Its very easy to build. As long as you keep to the width and length you'll be fine (has to fit in the seat). Im not sure if the 12" will fight since you need a shallow sub. I baught the 10" pioneer shallow for $100 on amazon and it's amazing.

Here is SirGCal's link on how to build the box. I think it cost me $25 to build it.

Pmedg 03-22-2011 03:55 PM

I have seen many jeeps with the wake board boat speakers and subs mounted to the roll bar. It looks very clean and you still have your trunk space?
