New JKU owner with a bass question

Whats up! I bought my first jeep(2017 JKU Big Bear Edition) a couple months ago, and have already used plenty of advise I've read on this forum(so thank you!).

My current question is regarding the lack of bass. I have a UConnect stereo, and standard speakers(not the upgraded Alpine system). And there is almost no low bass at all. I'm not all wanting be bumping down the street, but want to hear(or feel) at least a little bass in my car.
My first thought on it, is to add something under the back row seats. Just from looking on Amazon, it looks like the Kicker Hideaway 8" looks to be a reasonable solution. What does Wranglerforum think?

Yeah, Kicker HS8 is a great option. But might over power your stock system.
Best advice, addd kicker 8, upgrade all speakers and add a small amp like the Alpine KTP44 or similar.

Well, I don't have anything to add to what's already been said so well.

I just wanted to stop by and say . . .

Kicker is a great bunch of guys/gals local to us here in OK, and also fellow Jeepers. Can't go wrong IMO
