Wanting to add some but not sure about the trunk because of limited space could they go under the seats?

The "best" way is an external amp and a (2 speaker) subwoofer box in the rear. This is the "best" way, IMHO. At home, do you have your subwoofer under your sofa? Or, is it across the room? The box isn't that heavy and you can easily take it out. Still, there is good, there is better, and then, there is best. You asked for "best".

Stealth boxes are legit, I wouldn't be too quick to judge something u haven't heard. I have 2 powered with 2 500 amps behind the glove box everything is hidden and plenty of bass. Bass travels through the tub and sounds like it comes from the back seat. Seats move freely. Trunk room always free. Will cost a bit more to go stealth route though as opposed to the more common trunk placement.

I didn't say they weren't legit. I think you're reading an argument into my comment.

Just posted a similar thread the other day. I don't know about you but I love the stealth box and the vrssa or whatever the kicker line is but I didn't have the extra 1500 to spend after doing a whole install so I went with an 8" Audison sub made by hertz and its location is moveable but it also hides nicely. I'd highly recommend.

I’ve got a Gobi Chief and the Alpines are sick. Get your hands on one of those subs. I swear I’m going to go deaf ...... it’s unreal

Ok I love this part...

check out mine...
I later removed the top Plywood covered ion carpet deck and hacked a Tuffy front portion off and bought a Jeep floor mat for some other model jeep and hooked it all up as shown...
Subs= Problem Solved...

10" subs and a mono amp. One under each seat is the only way to fly if you ask me. Custom boxes from Mattk11. More bass than you will need, but nice to have headroom for adjusting. :)
This is the best option I have looked at. It will be my next audio upgrade. I wish he did 8" as I think two 8s would be great and need less air. But anyway, a sub is critical in this Jeep. I still use my old 10" Alpine R in a box in the cargo area. Small enough to pull out with ease, but plenty loud with the roof is off. Much cheaper than the custom options if you don't fill your cargo area all the time.

I would also suggest adding the headliner. It was a huge benefit to the sound in the Jeep. And it keeps it cooler. Finally, get a HU with time alignment. Best invention in car audio since the tape deck - vinyl on the road is a bear.

Those are at floor level and flat Mine are vertical and protected by bucket seats and not in the mud zone since they sit a lot higher... but to each his own..bet they rumble though ...not a bad set up ...

They look like they do indeed rumble. I am looking to get them out the cargo area. I load the back frequently and need to pull out my sub to use the area. I do worry about feet and mud under the seat though.

JL Audio's Stealth Box.. I have two and they produce awesome bass. One would be ample Jeep Wrangler Unlimited '07-Up - JL Audio
I agree. This sub/box with an amp to push it is the best option. I went with two but one would probably be sufficient for most. They fit perfectly without sacrificing any useful space at all.

I also installed an aftermarket head unit with CarPlay, Android Auto and Sirius XM.
