Sub/Amp combo unit.

Anybody have any experience with these. Maybe not this particular unit but anything like this. This one looks like it's about 9 inches tall when lying flat. I was thinking about something like this when I upgrade my TJ's sound system this summer. I thought if I could get something like this under one of the seats and then some nicer speakers in the sound bar that came with the Jeep. I am not looking for a big booming base system but something that has a little thump to it.

Your paying alot for two things that are cheap seperately. It is a nice unit but not for $300. Use craiglist, ebay, there are deals to be found. You can get a small 8" sub and a truck box, and a small amp and run them next to eachother. It would save you probably $50-$100 IMO..

I've seen those recommended on here in the past...apparently they're pretty good...and $300 isn't too terrible for good quality equipment. For my audio system in my truck, I shelled out $115 for each subwoofer (10") and $215 for my amp. So roughly the same...

Now granted... you can definitely go cheaper, especially if you're not an audiophile.

^ He is correct, Infinity is good stuff. But, I just dont think it would be worth it.

Yeah, I personally prefer to buy my stuff separately...combo units IMO are the lazy way to go about something and often times you're sacrificing quality somewhere whether its build quality, sound quality, etc. Those also seem like they'd be easy to steal.

If it were me, I would buy a separate sub and amp...I would then build a box suited for my location, mount the amp to the side of the box (or put it underneath a seat or somewhere else nearby if you prefer)...I would probably try to mount it with torx screws or something difficult to remove without the proper tools in order to deter thieves. I would do the same with the box...I'd make it a downfiring enclosure (so the sub can't be robbed from the box without first removing it), and then I would figure out a way to securely mount it to the tub once again using torx or some kind of difficult to remove screws/bolts. The more difficult it is to steal...the more likely you will be to not have it stolen. lol

I installed one of those. Here's the link:

https://www.wranglerforum.com/f40/inf...all-34404.html

By the way, you can get them on Amazon for $205 shipped, and an extra 24 for the wiring harness.

I couldn't be happier with this unit.

What is the clearance between the tub and the bottom of the front seats? My jeep is currently sitting in a buddies garage so I can't measure. I just thought that if this would fit under one of the front seats it would be worth a little extra money. I don't think it would be possible to build a box and get a regular sub and the amp under the seat. I would hate to lose all of that storage space behind the back seat.
