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.
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

JL Audio Stealthbox® reviews
I've had this installed in my Focus ST for a couple of months now and couldn't be more pleased. Paired with the JL Audio XD300, Excellon XR600-6DSP, iDatalink Maestro AR, everything sounds the way it should have from the factory. It hits harder and louder than many 12"s I had in the last 20 years.
Pros: Great sound

So clean and tight bass... puts all my other previous systems to shame. Expensive but worth it. Driven by a JL 300w amp. Blown away. Love it. Only painful part was installation. I had to take the body cladding apart then drill a big hole through my car body into the wheel well. Good God, what engineer thought that was a good idea? There are body posts in the area, why ask people to drill huge holes in their cars? Lastly, the speaker wire inputs are in the rear, so if you need access, you have to unbolt everything. Dumb. Can't give it 5 stars as its so bad.
Pros: Sound, performance, looks. Everything but the install.
Cons: Mounting x1000

Perfect fit and amazing performance. I powered it with a 5 channel amp which outputs 300 watts at 2 ohms and it meshed perfectly. I couldn't ask for anything more since it retained about all of my trunk space and added some much needed lower frequency punch.

Okay, first things first, build quality and packing of this Stealthbox is top notch. Just like the other 2 JL Stealthboxes I've purchased in the past, this one for the Ford Focus hatchback didn't disappoint in that regard. The carpeting quality and color used was near an exact match of the factory interior. So why am I only giving this product 3 stars? First, the "brand new" box I received directly from JL Audio shipped with a bad speaker. Secondly, the mounting solution has such a glaringly obvious design flaw, whoever designed it should be slapped silly in the face. I'll address the mounting flaw first. This Stleathbox requires drilling a 1/2" hole through the passenger side fender well. Which is fine, that's not a big deal. You then have to mount a "threaded bolt" through that 1/2" hole. The Stealthbox slides over that thread bolt and then you bolt the box to the fender well. The problem is, JL Audio installs a "threaded" insert on the Steathbox! It's impossible to thread the box onto that bolt. I actually had to drill out the threaded insert, which was a complete pain. Second flaw, was my brand new box actually shipped with a bad speaker. I paired my sub with a JL Audio XD300/1. After much trouble shooting I narrowed the problem down to a bad speaker. Crutchfield shipped a brand new one, I got that hooked up and the box sounds absolutely amazing in this small car. If I didn't run into those problems, this sub would easily have been 5 stars.
Pros: Amazing sound quality, near perfect carpeting match, and nice build quality.
Cons: Huge mounting design flaw which requires drilling out an insert on the box. "Brand new" box shipped with a bad speaker.

This sounds great. Enclosure seems very well built. I Havent bought new technology subs since about 2001 and Im impressed. Im using a Precision power I450 with it with the gain at about 60% w/ the remote. I was worried about the shallow mount (my 1st) producing, but this is as loud (but clearer) than the audiobahn 12 in a ported box that had in my last car. Put it in at work (car dealership service) and alot of people came over to hear it and were really inpressed too. I can actually feel the spl pressure if I turn it up
Pros: sounds great, loud and clean even when turned up. great enclosure.
Cons: alil expensive but you get top quality stuff. only uses 1 big bolt to mount while the 2 factory sub mount studs are right below it (dont know why they didnt use those for extra support, it would have made marking the hole for the bolt alot easier too since they wouldve put the box exactly where it needed to be.)
