I just installed a new subwoofer speaker from quadratec last weekend. it's a perfect match and fit, in the space as well as wiring.
quadratec has an exclusive on the speaker.
part number 14133.1001 \
it's worth it. swaping the speaker out of the subwoofer unit took about 5 minutes...
it's made of much better weather resistant and long lasting material.
don't mess with buying a new speaker unit from the dealer or another supplier. 2 reasons:
1) the electrical connector of the new subwoofer unit may be different. My Sahara connector has a connector with about 16 or 18 pins in it. I paid a high price for an OEM Jeep subwoofer box unit ( a week before quadratec came out with the new speaker) and the plug on it did NOT match my Jeep wiring!!!! It only had about 8 pins in the connector.
2) old OEM parts are going to be OLD and the same lousy material as the original speaker. i doubt any new old stock replacement from jeep will last long.
my old speaker was SHOT. it was separated all the way around to the speaker mount. no wonder it sounded like "crud".
by the way, to take out your center console you will only need a 13mm socket and a either a T30 torx.I don't recall which. the 13mm socket works on the front cup holder bolt.
my new speaker sounds great. and the wife can't beef about the old busted one anymore.
