Good subwoofer to replace stock.

Ok, I blew the stock subwoofer on my TJ. Probably got rained on, who knows. I'm not into the whole boom, boom rap stuff. I just want to replace it without paying $280 to the dealer.

Any suggestions? My main criteria is that it fits in the console without modification and it doesn't make my TJ sound like some high schooler. (Sorry, but high school was a looong time ago!)

Thanks,

Jeff

6 3/4" is your stock size, which is a crappy odd size, IMO. You can get a decent sub at that size for around $100 or less. Better off going up to an 8", but that's just my opinion again.

Honestly; if you want it to fit into the console WITHOUT modifications, your only choice is to get another stock replacement. Hit up ebay.

Otherwise you can build a box for the console for an 8" and add a new amp (reqired) or some other setup like in-seat or behind-seat.

Uggh! I was hoping that someone would say "brand X 4x4 has a great for less than 100 bucks"

What is it with manufacturers and non-standard audio components.

Thanks to both of you for your help

JL Audio or Kicker are the only ones I'd consider (I have an 8" Kicker in my console - Tuffy).

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

I have a stock sub/amp from my 03 TJ that I just took out so that I could build a custom enclosure in there. PM if interested.
