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 2002-up Dodge Ram Quad Cab trucks. It fits under the rear-bench seat on the passenger side. This Stealthbox® includes one 10" 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 low. You should be able to install this enclosure if you have any experience with car audio.

Note: You may need to cut into or remove part of the underseat carpet and/or carpet padding in some models. This Stealthbox® enclosure will not fit Mega Cab models.

Product Research

Features

Overview: JL Audio's Stealthbox subwoofer systems are designed to hide away in a specific vehicle. Please consult the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector 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 W3v3-2 subwoofer is loaded in this sealed enclosure. Features of the W3v3 include:

  • 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
Amp included?
[ Kevin  May 04, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
This speaker and enclosure are passive, and will require an amplifier, which is sold separately.
[ Calvin  May 27, 2020 ]  Staff
A
No. I used a JL 500 watt amp placed under the middle backseat.
[ MICHAEL  May 21, 2020 ]
Q
Will this fit a 2020 ram rebel quad cab?
[ Nate  Oct 10, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
It fit perfectly in my 2016 version and to my knowledge nothing changed that would effect fitting into a 2020. In fact the hole in my 2004 was the exact same as our 2016.
[ MICHAEL  Oct 10, 2019 ]
Q
Will this replace my factory alpine system sub and amp? If so is it plug and play in the back near the sub and then run harness to the battery or will there be a harness to run all the way to the factory radio?
[ Richard  Feb 18, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
No. This product is just a subwoofer in a box shaped to fit nicely in your ram pickup. It provides only a speaker level input for the subwoofer. You would still need an amp and head unit in order to run this.
[ Jory  Feb 19, 2019 ]
Q
Would a JL 10w6 fit in this enclosure? I understand it comes with a 10w3 but prefer sound of the 6 and I have one from my last truck.
[ Crfq68  Oct 06, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
Will not. Sub to big. And box is not right volume for a w6
[ Rich  Oct 07, 2018 ]
A
I'm afraid I wouldn't know specifically if a 10w6 would fit. I assume if the only difference between the two speakers is the electronics, and not the dimensions, then it should fit. I would suggest that you contact JL Audio to be absolutely certain, if you are unable to find the information that you need. Also, you should ask JL Audio if the dimensions of the box's acoustics are able to handle the output of the 10w6. It may sound distorted if the 10w6 has too high an output. Good luck
[ Chris  Oct 06, 2018 ]
Q
I have the JX500/1D amp. What kind of output can be expected when paire with this enclosure? 2018 ram 1500
[ Shawn  Aug 03, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
Hello Shawn. I'm afraid that I don't have any expert advise for you on that question. I consulted the good people at Crutchfield when making my initial purchase. I can tell you that the box sounds fantastic to me for my needs, but I don't have it set for that loud "ghetto boom" crap that most people go for. If you're looking for a solid box, with excellent range for just about every type of music, then I highly recommend this box. I listen to a very wide range of music, from classical to smooth jazz, and from classic rock to death metal. It handles all of it very well. I absolutely love it!
[ Chris  Aug 06, 2018 ]
A
It will have very good sound with that amp. However to get the full potential of the sub, I'd recommend and 750 watt amp.Enter
[ GARY  Aug 06, 2018 ]
A
This enclosure is awesome...u went be disappointed...great thump
[ troy  Aug 06, 2018 ]
Q
Says to drill hole? Yeah, that is not happening. I need another option. Now go!
[ Shawn  Jun 28, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
You dont have to bolt it down. It shouldnt move if its under the seat. Mines been fine for 2 years just using gravity.
[ Mike  Jul 03, 2018 ]
A
I didn't drill any hole either. with the seat down the box does not move and sound is amazing. I think its a precaution that they tell you that a hole is needed
[ GLENN  Jul 03, 2018 ]
A
I would drill the hole to keep vibrating down! Or try caulking Velcro. Sub hits hard and sounds great
[ Bobby  Jul 02, 2018 ]
A
I have this box and I didn't drill it either. Something about punching holes in the floorpan of my truck turns me off. Anyway, I've had it in there for a while now with no issues. It stays put and doesn't rattle or anything. I'm pretty sure they want you to secure it with that bolt so that it won't become a projectile if you were in a wreck. That is something to think about but in the end I still couldn't make myself drill that hole. Bottom line, bass is really good from this thing and it's about your only option if you have a Dodge. But you may have to turn down the gain on your other channels as they will drown out the sub. I made some adjustments and been really happy with it.
[ William Thomas  Jul 02, 2018 ]
A
Industrial Velcro works. It also just sits there on its own pretty well.

Q
2017 RAM Crew Cab: Can the oem fold out floor stay in place or does it have to be removed? What are the shipping weight and the dimensions?
[ Stefan  Mar 20, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The passenger's side fold out floor will be removed to install this box. I don't see any step talking about re-installing it which means we expect that part of the fold out floor to go away. The shipping dimensions are 26" x 16.5" x 15.5" with a weight of 27lbs My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

how much loader and better is this one over the kicker vss kit for the ram ?
[ brett  Aug 05, 2017 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

Q
What size speaker wire should i run to the sub?
[ Brian  Oct 05, 2016 ]
4 answers
A
16 gauge is what I believe my installer used. however make sure your amp will work at 2 ohm load. I burned up 2 amps not realizing this sub requires a 2 ohm load to work properly
[ ROBERT  Oct 05, 2016 ]
A
I have 8 ohm wire going to mine and it sounds great!!!
[ Dennis  Oct 05, 2016 ]
A
Just remember you are sending a lot of power to your sub. Sending that power through a 16 gauge wire is not going to give you the tight strong bass you are looking for. I personally use a 10 gauge to make sure all the power that the sub requires is not lost in to small gauge wire. Test for yourself. You will hear the difference. Use a 16 gauge wire and then try a heavier gauge. You will see for yourself.
[ EJ  Oct 05, 2016 ]
A
It is a complete sub setup with a long excursion 10" JL sub. Pair it with a JL sub amp and it will pound.
[ Glen  Oct 05, 2016 ]
Q
How many ohms is this sub wired for because I keep seeing conflicting information on the internet?
[ joseph  Apr 22, 2016 ]

A
2 ohms. Just go to JL web site to confirm what im telling you. Crutchfield places your order to JL Audio to began making the custom box for you. JL will ship it to you from there Florida warehouse.
[ Keith  Apr 22, 2016 ]
A
The sub is the 10W3v3-2, the 2ohm.
[ JOSEPH  Apr 22, 2016 ]
A
2 ohms

Q
Will it fit on either side compartment of the back seat? I am thinking of getting two for my 2006 quad cab 2500?
[ JoshR  Mar 02, 2015 ]

Q
Does the box fit on the passenger side as the picture shows? And does is go under the middle seat as well? Or just one side?
[ Zack  Oct 24, 2014 ]
5 answers
A
It does fit under the passenger seat rather nicely and it does extend a few inches under the center seat. Just note to be careful when drilling the mounting hole. Make sure you drill straight down and in the exact spot to avoid hitting any of the cab reinforcement members. It's worth the money. Sounds great in my Ram.
[ COREY  Oct 27, 2014 ]
A
The box only fits under the passenger side and takes up half of under the seat in the center, therefore causing the need to remove the double bench under the seat.
[ Joshua  Oct 24, 2014 ]
A
Yes it does. And a small part goes over the middle but not a lot. It fits snug under the seat and has a lot of sound coming out of it. Better than I thought
[ JONATHAN D  Oct 24, 2014 ]
A
Its fits under passenger side back seat, in the little storage compartment.
[ STEPHEN  Oct 24, 2014 ]
A
It fits under the back passenger seat as it shows. It goes to about the cup holders, so it goes about half way. I still have plenty of room for some storage. And this product sounds amazing! You will not be disappointed!
[ JEREL  Oct 24, 2014 ]

Does this subwoofer fit underneath the fold-flat floor device underneath the seat? I'm driving a 2006 Ram 1500 quad cab. Thanks!
[ Jimmie  Jan 05, 2014 ]

A
It does have to be removed. I had a dodge ram and had the jl stealthbox. Sounded great in fact still have the sub. Put it in storage in case I buy another dodge.
[ EJ  Oct 05, 2016 ]
A
It does not. The fold out metal floor must be removed.
[ SHAWN  Jan 05, 2014 ]
A
No, you have to remove the fold flat floor device. Well at least I did on my 2012 Ram.
[ DANNY  Jan 05, 2014 ]
A
No it doesn't. There is 2 bolts that hold that device down. You have to take that device out in order to get the Stealthbox in that spot. Well worth it though!
