About the JL Audio Stealthbox®

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.

JL Audio Built In USA 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 2001-2003 Ford F-150 trucks with rear bucket seats and 2000-02 Lincoln Navigators and 2002 Blackwoods with center bucket seats. It installs inside the rear-center console and some storage capacity will be lost. This Stealthbox® includes one down-firing 12", 2-ohm W3v3 subwoofer from JL Audio. Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector on our site, or calling a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.

JL Audio has rated the difficulty of this Stealthbox® installation as moderate or high. Crutchfield recommends using a car audio professional to install this enclosure, unless you have extensive experience installing car audio gear.

Note: You'll need to modify the inner-console area permanently in order to complete this installation. This Stealthbox® enclosure will not fit in trucks with rear split bench seats, or in any 2003-up Lincoln Navigator. The factory console is not supplied with the Stealthbox®.

Tough install, great bass

Crutchfield customer from Toledo, OH on 3/22/2014

Installation directions are very good. I don't like that I have to destroy part of my truck to install this enclosure. For the price, they could include the lining of the console. Great sound, a bit expensive.

Pros: Great bass sound, well written installation instructions

Cons: Overpriced, irreversible installation

This thing sounds awesome !!!!! I can't believe how good the lows hit at any volume level

Pros: Fits perfect once installed correctly inside the center console

Cons: Can't think of any

Good sound.

I installed this enclosure in Nov. 07 and broke it in accordingly. The sound and thump is there but don't expect to be heard when you are driving around. The bass sounds good inside, but thats about it. For the price and it being a JL product, I expected more. The only complain was the installation instructions were not very clear and it is probably left to a pro with the correct tools to install. Other than that I am pleased.

Product Research

Features

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: A 12" JL Audio W3v3 2Ω subwoofer is loaded in this sealed enclosure.

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, W3v3 motors remain linear in motor force over a very long range of excursion, and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is vastly reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio's patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.
  • Vented Reinforcement Collar (VRC): The Vented Reinforcement Collar is a composite structure that addresses two issues related to reliability. By reinforcing the critical junction between the cone, voice coil and spider, the VRC greatly reduces failures due to glue breakdown or material weaknesses. It does this by greatly increasing adhesive contact area and providing stress relief to the spider material at excursion extremes. the VRC also feature slots that facilitate air flow directly onto the voice coil windings to reduce thermal compression effects and enhances reliability.
  • Spider/Lead Wire Assembly: The W3v3 features a unique spider, coil and terminal subassembly which is assembled prior to installation in the speaker frame for optimum alignment and glue-joint integrity. The spider is insert-molded into a composite carrier tray which also incorporates the terminal assembly and lead wire strain relief features for enhanced reliability and optimal alignment of parts. The flying lead wires are carefully controlled and strain-relieved without resorting to woven-in lead wires, which can degrade spider performance.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the W3v3 delivers high-velocity air flow through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.
  • Surround Stress Relief: By creating a radiused feature on the edge of the cone, stress is relieved from the surround material at maximum forward excursion, resulting in longer life and more consistent surround behavior.

Q
What is the square foot of the stealth box thanks?!
[ Brad  Apr 18, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
I don't have the dimensions of this box to get the square foot area of any of the sides on it. I also don't have any information confirming the internal cubic feet air space in the box. However, I know that the subwoofer in this sealed box is a 12W3v3 model. JL Audio recommends 1.25 cubic feet box volume which leads me believe that this box has that exact amount of space inside it My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q
I use to have this same box in my 2001 f 150 but in the front console with a 10"w7 in it do you still have the front console box too?
[ milton  Jul 30, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. There is nothing available through Crutchfield for the front console. I checked JL Audio's website as well http://www.jlaudio.com/car-audio-stealthbox There doesn't seem to be anything available. Hope that helps.
[ Kenny  Jul 30, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
Can you put a 12"w7 in this Stealthbox instead of a w3?
[ Jason  Dec 06, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
The Stealthboxes are designed specifically for the subwoofer model that comes in them. I do not recommend changing the subwoofer to a different model.
