Sunwoofer suggestions

I'm looking for subwoofer suggestions. I don't want anything overly obnoxious but am looking for some extra sound in my jeep. I don't have any front speakers currently but will probably put some in once I drop my windshield this weekend to install a new cowl seal.
I want a set up that includes the amp already built in, something like the link im posting below.
Does anyone have any experience with this dual sub? I'm not too excited about buying a dual product but have heard good things about this particular subwoofer. Also open to any suggestions but I don't want to spend too much on a system that I'll have to worry about every time I park my YJ.
Thanks.

I personally would get a shallow sub(I have a $35 boss audio 10") make a perfect sized custom box and run a cheap 150wrms amp. This would cost around the $100 and sound better

This is on my list http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130TSWH...TS-WH500A.html It will hide under the seat & be out of sight.

Doesn't fall into the cheap category though

Bazookas include the amp, and are affordable. I've thought about mounting one solidly to the roll bars over your head but over the back seat, leaving room for the soundbar over the front.

I have some experience with car audio and Ihave to say i agree with this. I have looked at bazooka tubes as well, but honestly the above post is going to sound better than what you are looking at. As someone who got relieved of his audio I understand where you are coming from. Nothing makes you any madthan getting ripped off. So my solution to the problem is

1. Not sink a whole lot of money into the project.
2. Make everything as concealed as possible i.e.one subwoofer in a downfiring box amps hidden under the back seat, dash speaker, I've got a sound bar so putting some speakers in there no swag advertising my gear, and not cranking when it is going to be parked. This by no means insures itwon't get stolen again but it is being proactive and not having the it won't happen to me mindset I oncehad about 20 years ago. I know this is more than you asked for

ButI'm just trying to give you a few points of consideration.. Do what you want t. But I really don't think you will get what you are wanting out of that package.

I have the same sub in the link in my yj.. it sounds great with the top on and off too.. harder to hear with the top off but you can still get that kick a little.. highly recommend it especially for the price
