The JL Audio Stealthbox® custom-fit subwoofer delivers incredible bass in a package that takes up minimal space and blends in with your vehicle's interior. JL Audio designs Stealthboxes to fit in specific vehicles, then loads them with appropriate subwoofers for optimal performance. Pair the system with an appropriate amp and wiring for stellar concealed bass.
Perfect sound to go with the perfect fit
JL Audio puts months of research and design into each Stealthbox® custom-fit subwoofer to ensure not only that it fits, but that it sounds better than any other custom enclosed system. First, JL Audio determines the ideal shape and mounting location for each enclosure, so that it looks like an original part of the vehicle it's designed for. Next, they mount each high-performance subwoofer so it delivers amazing firepower from within its unique enclosure, without sacrificing clarity or musical depth.
The fiberglass enclosure offers superior rigidity while allowing more interior volume, so the sub can turn out louder, deeper bass. JL Audio craftsmen then laminate, grind, join, and finish each Stealthbox® by hand. The end result: full-bodied, distortion-free bass from an impressively stealthy enclosure.
Enjoy enhanced, custom-fit sound
This Stealthbox® enclosure fits in the 2007-up Jeep Wrangler. It installs on the cargo-area floor, raising the floor about five inches. Installed correctly, the enclosure can be easily removed from your Jeep if you need the space or anticipate some serious dirt and mud. This Stealthbox® includes one 10" 2-ohm W1v3 subwoofer from JL Audio. Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector, or calling an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.
JL Audio has rated the difficulty of this Stealthbox® installation as moderate. You should be able to install this enclosure if you have experience with car audio but some vehicles may require modifications.
Instead of the usual sub in a box, the manufacturer creates a molded enclosure that fits perfectly into a convenient spot in your specific vehicle, housing a high-quality sub. Some enclosures even include a built-in amp, for the ultimate in stealth bass. The advantages? You don't lose much space (if any), your sub is perfectly matched to its enclosure, and your enclosure has a factory look that won't tell potential thieves you have an awesome sound system. Doesn't get better than that.
I bought the Stealthbox after researching several options for my husband's Jeep; no other subwoofers seemed to work well. The Stealthbox fits in the limited area available, blends in with the interior, and leaves plenty of room for the back seat and some storage. A big selling point was the space available in the box for an amp. After getting everything installed, it sounds GREAT. I can't review the sub without an amp, but I can say that even with the stock speakers and head unit, the sound in the Jeep is vastly improved, and you can't see the sub and amp at all. Delivery was quick, the packaging was very sturdy, and the sub sounds awesome; all in all, I'm very pleased with both the product and Crutchfield's service. We'll be back.
Pros: Fits well in the small amount of space available in a Jeep; great sound; additional space for separate amp.
Cons: None so far.
I do not listen much to hip hop, or music that shakes your surroundings outside the vehicle. It takes 15' of physical airspace to reproduce bass waves under certain frequencies anyway. What I do like is tight solid punch of the kick drum, of which is referred to as "basketball sound or punch" on high end audio sites like gearslutz. This delivers that. It is hooked up to a JL HD900/5. The amp has a separate volume knob for just the sub, nice touch and I use it a lot.
Pros: Solid punch. Has an area to mount the amp. Ported towards the front, so the sound "crawls" thru under the back seat. Allows the area above it to still be used for placing groceries or suitcases on top. Easy to install. Blends right in with the rest of the interior. Unless you know what you are looking at, it does have the stealth / undetectable going on. I also used a JL clean sweep, cause I wanted to use the stock radio, and leave the Jeep with the top off and not attract curious thieves
Cons: Price was no object for me given the above pros, , but many can get results without the attributes mentioned for less money.
Box had a nice fit in vehicle but raddled allot had to screw it down to eliminate vibrations. I found that the bass was not as I expected from a JL product I was hoping for more bass. I powered it with the JL 700/5. I got better bass from a Kenwood sub in a custom wood box from my old system witch cost me a couple of hundred bucks!
Pros: Great fit, clean look
Cons: Box rattles and lack of bass for a JL product.
Stealthbox is sleek - only takes up about 4-5" of height in rear cargo area. Allows for maximum storage while achieving great sound. Comes with 10" JL Audio Sub.
Pros: small foot print - allows for maximum storage.
Overview: JL Audio's Stealthbox subwoofer systems are designed to hide away in a specific vehicle. Please consult "Outfit My Car" to confirm compatibility with your vehicle.
Construction: Stealthboxes are hand-crafted from fiberglass and/or Advanced Molded Composite (AMC) materials. Fiberglass delivers a level of enclosure rigidity and dimensional stability not possible with other enclosure materials, allowing wall thickness to be reduced compared to a typical wood enclosure. This gives you more interior box volume for a given external volume. Fiberglass and AMC materials are very strong and can be molded into very complex shapes; giving JL Audio the ability to design your Stealthbox to fit perfectly into tight spots and minimize intrusion into your vehicle's useful space. Each Stealthbox is laminated, ground, joined, and finished by hand in the USA. Proprietary techniques and materials developed by JL Audio through years of fiberglass manufacturing experience ensure consistent quality and performance.
Woofer: One 10" JL Audio W1v2, 4-ohm subwoofer is loaded in this enclosure.
