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.

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 2011-up Jeep Grand Cherokee models. It installs in the passenger side rear cargo area (factory sub will need to be removed, if equipped).

Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector on our site, or calling an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.

Beware Automatic Noise cancellation

Craig from Richmond, TX on 8/22/2017

Note to 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee owners!!!!! For either the '14 or '15 model year many Of the high trim level Jeeps get an Automatic noise cancellation "feature". 2 things about this. 1- upgrading the subwoofer ended up making this a sine wave sweep generator that is annoying as all get out. The Jl sub has a Much higher output and ends up randomly (when the engine goes into cylinder deactivation mode) piping a droning 40-80hz variable sine wave through the sub. I have an SRT model which gives me a workaround. Keep the tranny or vehicle in sport mode and it turns off noise reduction. As a second workaround when I don't want to get 11 mpg in the city I have a remote volume control on my amp. When I hear the drone I just turn the amp down til I don't. Now second and probably more important. The module for the automagic noise reduction is in the back wall of the passenger side of the vehicle and is just large enough that the stealth box is not a perfect fit anymore. It ends up causing the box of only fit on 2 of the 3 sub mounts and being tilted forward. I have been on the phone with mopar, posted to online car mechanics and even mopar Ecu tuners who say it's too tightly integrated to remove the automatic noise reduction system. It ties in to the factory amp and stereo so if you don't want to give up the uconnect then it's something you have to deal with. That said the JL sub is not bad, but it's not as good as others I've had. Factory match is great though and its very s

Pros: Factory look. Way better than the HK "green line" sub

Cons: Box doesn't quite fit perfectly on Automatic Noise cancellation equipped vehicles. I think started with 2015 my

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installing this was easy, thanks to the detailed instructions that was given to me with the purchase. Once installed I put power to it with a JLaudio JX500/1D amp as the factory power provided for the sub isn't enough to power this 10"monster. With everything installed there is no difference with cargo room, I still have all the space that I had before and the carpet on the box matched perfectly. Now for the sound, this thing bumps loud! I was blown away with how loud it is for not even being noticeable. It really provides that deep bass you cannot get with the factory system.

Pros: Easy install Deep bass Fit perfectly Looks great

Cons: A bit too expensive

Amazing sound quality !

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

JL audio w3v3 2 ohms 10 inch is a amazing subwoofer. The stealthbox is 100% accurate and it fits my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee perfectly. I have black interior and the color matches very nicely. I have this subwoofer connected to a JL Audio A1400 Amp at 500 watts RMS at 2ohms and it's connected to the factory head unit. The bass sound is incredible for any type of music and it can literally shake a glass off the car.

Pros: - heavy duty bass - incredible sound quality - matches the car perfectly - custom fiberglass box

Cons: Expensive!

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: One 10" JL Audio W3v3-2 subwoofer is loaded in this slot-loaded enclosure and wired as a 2Ω load at the enclosure's post speaker terminal.

  • 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.

For a fiberglass custom built box? No. Especially when you listen to it [ Chris  Jun 26, 2015 ]
YA it does but, I guess that's what you have to pay for a special box unless you want to make your own. [ CARLS  Jun 26, 2015 ]
Its a custom box that fits perfectly and looks original without taking up space from the trunk of the SUV 100% recommended! [ MARC  Jun 26, 2015 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Jeff  Dec 04, 2014 ]  Staff
You will need to add an aftermarket amplifier to power this enclosure. The factory amp will not have enough power for this subwoofer. For help in picking out an amp, I would recommend contacting an Advisor by phone or chat. They will be able to look at what will match your system, and make sure you have everything you need for the install. [ Jeff  Dec 18, 2013 ]  Staff
