Our take on the Select Increments Stealth-Pod

by Dominic Devito
Select Increments

Select Increments brings you the Stealth-Pod portable subwoofer enclosure, a space-saving way to add some kick to your CJ7, Scrambler or Wrangler. This rugged 1/4"-thick black plastic box mounts on the inside of your tailgate in a hideaway position, so it won't take up much of your limited cargo space. In most cases, you can't remove the enclosure without opening the tailgate or flipping down the back seat. For added security, you can easily disconnect the Stealth-Pod, bring it inside with you, then reinstall it in a flash when you return to your Jeep.

The unloaded Stealth-Pod mounts on the tailgate via bracket hangers which isolate the enclosure and reduce noise-causing vibrations. The sealed enclosure's internal volume measures 0.7 cubic feet, so Type 1 10" component subs work best in the enclosure — just install the sub of your choice, then add an amplifier and wiring. Your sub fires down at a slight angle, giving you punchy bass that adds depth to your music while the speaker is protected from the elements.

The package includes all the necessary mounting hardware, including a 10" foam gasket that forms an airtight seal around your speaker. Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle. Some slight drilling modification to the tailgate or enclosure may be required to properly mount your subwoofer and install the Stealth-Pod, depending on your Jeep.

Highlights:

  • sealed textured plastic subwoofer enclosure
  • fits on tailgate of 1976-86 CJ7 / Scrambler and all 1976-up Wrangler models
  • holds one 10" subwoofer
  • enclosure volume: 0.70 cu. ft.

So far so good

Written By 2011 JK Wrangler, Chicago, IL on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
4 out of 5 because I've only had it for a week. At this point I don't see it disappointing me. I bought this enclosure, a kicker sub and a sound ordnance amp and I can't be happier with the amount I've spent for the sound quality. This stealth box does exactly what it needs to do and still allows me the use of my trunk space (the other half when the tailgate is closed). Since the unit is plastic versus a wooden sub box, the sound is a little different because plastic does not absorb sound the same as wood does. It's nothing bad or too noticeable to a casual user versus someone who considers themself an "audiophile". To them it may be noticeable, but in that instance you can simply line the inside of the case with dynamat to help. I haven't done that yet because at this point I do not see a need to. I bought new speakers and tweeters for the front of my jeep and speakers for the sound bar, but they were missing the right amount of bass. This stealth pod and sub made all the difference. I commute to work every day 36 miles (40-50) one way. So quality sound was important to me, as was saving money and not having to get a custom box made for my Wrangler. In my opinion, if you're looking for a cheap, but quality way to get a sub to fit in your wrangler, this is the way to go.
Pros:
Does what it advertises. Affordable Space saving Straight forward instructions
Cons:
Plastic box construction

Steal-Pod Yes it's worth it!

Written By LuisC, Hot AZ on Saturday, March 26, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed this in my Jeep Rubicon and couldn't be happier. The enclosure is
plenty sturdy and doesn't rattle eventhough it just basically hangs on the Jeep's
tailgate. The stealth-pod comes completely disassembled, but detailed
instructions are included. You will need to drill holes in your tailgate for the
hangers. I installed a Polk DXi104 svc subwoofer and it sounds amazing. The
added benefit of easy removal will give you peace of mind when the Jeep has
the top off and is unattended and whenever you need the extra space it'll just
take a few seconds to remove.

Select Increments Stealth-Pod

Written By Ed G, Middlesex NJ on Friday, February 25, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sounds great using dedicated sub with adj boost control when soft top is on or
down. Hard top on all winter. It seemed to me that mounting pins {mounts to rear
door} wouldn't hold up but its been a year and no problem. Only advice is to
keep a tube of dry graphite to lube pins occasionally as they will tend to
squeak. Would recommend reasonably priced,easy in and out and, installation

Great Product...easy install

Written By Bill, New Hampshire on Thursday, June 19, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product is really great solution for the limited space in Jeep Wranglers. Easy installation and very easy to remove from the rear door when security is an issue.

Installed a JL audio 10" W1v2 in this product...free airspace is .67 cu/ft which is only .03" shy of requirement for the JL. Seems to work just fine and great bass response.

Overall this is a great product

Love my stealth pod, hanging brackets are cracking, and one one the back of enclosure is busted, anyone know where or how I can't buy replacements? [ ron  Oct 15, 2014 ]

Wondering how this sounds compared to a forward-firing traditional wooden enclosure of the same dimensions. Is the sound the same? [ Brian  Feb 02, 2014 ]
3 answers
  • Bought for 2006 Jeep Wrangler 2 door. Very tight space. We often have the top down so plastic down firing was better option than wood forward firing. in case it rains. Can't compare to forward firing wood enclosure but the plastic on this is thick and the enclosure is solid. We added JL 10W1V3 10 in. sub with JL 300 amp XD300/1 with great sound. We don't hear any vibration. Comes with seal and baffling. The installation is removable so can be either removed or placed on the seat, for example, to use cargo space. Seems like a good solution to adding nice bass to a small space with weather a factor. [ Gary   Mar 06, 2014 ]
  • Sound is actually awesome. Really provides great balance to road noise. [ Scott   Feb 03, 2014 ]
  • It is a great compromise of space utilization, sound and economy. Bass sound isn't directional so it doesn't matter if it fires up, down, back or forward. [ GEORGE   Feb 03, 2014 ]
