Aftermarket stereo amp locations

Rockville USS8 8" 600w Slim Under-Seat Active Powered Car/Truck Subwoofer Sub. It is only 2.9" thick so I was thinking I could hide it under my back folding seat. I have looked into getting a center console and installing it there as well. I am one of the least handy ppl on the planet so the center console is a little scary.

I looked at the Intra-Pod but it seems crazy to spend that much. Rockville makes a 10" that is the same thickness as the 8". My main goal here is to just add some lows to the Jeep. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

That will be tough to fit under the back seat because you donít want the excursion of the sub firing and hitting the ground. Plus ideally you want at least 1.5-2Ē of free space in front of the sub even for sealed applications.

Thatís an active sub so you could configure it with quick disconnect wiring points that would let you take it in and out of the back easily. The nice thing about a sub that small is you could keep it out of sight pretty easily behind the back seat.

I did a YJ tub swap on my CJ and kept the YJ tailgate. That allows me to lock the tailgate and the sub box is custom built to every square inch available behind the back seat. Because the box is 15Ē deep at the bottom and angles up to 10Ē deep at the top... you canít remove the sub box without opening the tailgate.... Which is always locked and that keeps people from walking off with it. Plus, my 10Ē Sundown X10 sub weighs 56 pounds for the speaker alone. (Not including the box) in addition... you canít fold and tumble the rear seat with the sub box in place so there is no way to remove the amps mounted underneath. Youíd have to take and angle grinder to the tailgate hinges to steal my equipment.

I searched for the perfect stereo setup in a Jeep for 30 years... So Iíve had a bit of time to perfect this setup. This allows me to keep the back seat and still gain the low end I require to properly bump A Tribe Called Quest through my hood. I cover the back with a tonneau cover and that will conceal the enclosure and helps give me a little extra bass containment.

Thank you. I wasn't thinking about the space for the woofer to move. Looks like I will have to give this one some more thought
