I have installed subs into two jeeps so far, Both have been TJs. If any one has any questions please post them here. If you attatch a picture that will be best but I will try and guide you through it. I made a custom box to fit my subs, They are 2 12inch JLs with a 1600 watt amp. I dont use the amp to the max becasue there is no need to. please post questions

That's just what I purchased a Jeep for in 02,a flippen 1600 watt subwoofer system I could install for the street!

does that sub box have the recommended air volume for both of those subs? i have a kicker cvr 12" in a similar box that is a little bit smaller and it is the minimum size.

It does not meet the air space you are suppose to have, but I have had no problems with it so far, Kicker does a good job with their boxes so you should be Okay.

Where did you place the amp? I'm not sure where to put mine afraid of water

You can lift up your backseat and lay it under the seat, Mine is mounted under the seat so it does not bounce around. Enough room under there too because the seat sit reletivly high off the ground

You really must have a deep hatred for subs. I also never realize why "some" audio threads get moved to that forum. It see's hardly any traffic and most TJ audio questions can be answered here. But hey, I'm not a mod.

OP answer this question for me: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f20/s...b-box-1429211/

The original designer of the box said it was impossible, but I still want it to happen.

Otherwise you can run compression problems and even possibly damage the driver. But to do that without modifying the seat, you'd have to raise the seat a whole lot more then 1". The only other choice would be a front-firing setup which exposes the drivers to turbulent wind topless which could also damage them.

And honestly, if done properly, the modifications to the seat make it MORE secure then it was before. The first seat I did was tested to the failing point which was enough pressure to break the metal mounts themselves. The ONLY Downside is the seat is firmer then it was stock, but still plenty comfortable for average passengers.

On the flip-side if you just don't want to mess with the seat, then a behind-the-seat, down-firing box is the best choice for Jeep Wranglers that like to run topless. It gives you the best sound over all situations. Do NOT run rear or up-firing unless you never take the top off as bass-loss at highway speeds is tremendous in those configurations. Down-firing it is minimum. And you can make your own insta-trunk with the sub taking up one side (passenger side) and the amp on that or the underside of the roof. It obviously does take up some room but, it's the least you'll get without doing the in-seat or other very custom setups.

Okay well, I do not reccomend putting those subs in or under the seats, It will not sounds as good as you would like it to. The plan looks good in that other picture. If you would like me post the box specs I will because that may be helpful to others looking to put subs in. I have made another box like mine for my friend and he loves it. Try to make one like the picture above.

BamaJeepman21 11-18-2012 07:22 PM

I'd rather put them under the seat. I just don't want to take up any space in the rear. The subs and amp will only run me around $400, and then materials for the box maybe ~$100. I'll try it and see what happens.

This is the specs for the box above in the picture, You can mod the box to fit your needs but this is how I made it. This is for 2 12 inch subs...... This picture will not load

Tmblack3 11-19-2012 07:20 AM

I made my box out of 3/4" mdf wood, it isnt a kicker box. Ive had my amp under my seat for years and had no problems, and i ratchet strap my sub box down to the floor hooks on either side of the trunk area.

I recently took everything out of my jeep to bedcoat the interior, When i hooked the sub and amp back up wierd stuff was happening, when i plugged it in my radio turned on without the key being on and my amp started smoking, any ideas?

I have never heard of that before. Try and take your radio out and look at the wires going into the radio. Your REM wire or remote wire should be connected to a red wire that says "12 volt not consistant" make sure your remote wire is hooked up to that. check your ground wire too becasue maybe you need to regrind a spot and make a new sorce. please keeps us updated on if it has worked or not.
