Our take on the Select Increments Stealth-Pod by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
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.
Very nice sub box, very innovative design for the limited space in a Jeep! Not hard to install as long as the directions are followed.

I have 2 large dogs that often travel in the cargo area of my jeep, so the Select Increments Stealth-Pod was the best solution. [ Ron Dec 24, 2016 ]
It's protection and portability [ Elizabeth Nov 15, 2016 ]
I needed a removable subwoofer for my Jeep that could hide behind my back seat. This worked perfectly. [ Robert May 03, 2016 ]

I went with Alpine Series S subwoofer and my amp was a five channel Alpine amp. It pushes out a lot of RMS watts and sounds amazing [ Marc Oct 10, 2016 ]
Alpine amp and Focal DB sub. Awesome sound. [ Kim Oct 10, 2016 ]
If you want to go the semi-budget way, then go with the JL AudioHX300/1amp and a JL Audio10W0v3-4 sub. [ David Oct 10, 2016 ]
Depends on what you want. I used kicked sub and kicker amp my wrangler already had kicker speakers in sound bar. [ Tony Oct 10, 2016 ]
This product is the enclosure only. The subwoofer has to be purchased separately. I purchased a JL Audio 10" sub and it works great. Crutchfield has a nice selection of subs that will fit this enclosure. [ STEPHEN Aug 24, 2016 ]
No speaker. It's just the sub box. It's made of heavy duty plastic and molded to fit behind the back seat of a Jeep Wrangler. Any 10" subwoofer will fit in the box. I bought a Polk audio 10" sub and it fit right in. Not Ana's way to add some bass to your ride. It's [ Sheldon Aug 24, 2016 ]
It doesn't come with a speaker. I used a 10" JL and it sounded great. [ David Aug 24, 2016 ]
no speakers are included .. they are sold separately - for what it's worth, don't waste your time/money on this enclosure ... although it can be 'stable' when installed properly, it will rattle like crazy ... I replaced mine with a traditional enclosure after a month [ Matthew Aug 24, 2016 ]
Yes. You'll find it listed as one of the recommended subwoofer models by clicking the "Accessories" tab on the enclosure's main webpage. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan May 02, 2016 ] Staff
No, you do not have to move your seat for the subwoofer, it fits behind the rear seat. [ FRANK Jul 09, 2015 ]
I bought it for my son's 2006 TJ 2 door X Wrangler. It just fits in the space behind the seat and the rear gate. We mounted it on the door close to the hinges about an inch above floor level. It did make the gate creak quite a bit form the weight (we installed a pretty good subwoofer in it) so I installed the rubber feet on the enclosure and set it on the floor. It works great and no more creaking of the rear door. We like the plastic enclosure so if it does rain It doesn't ruin the subwoofer or the enclosure like the wooden ones. [ Gary Jul 08, 2015 ]
Your rear seat stays in the factory location. I am very pleased with the product, it is well made and looks good too. Don't forget to leave enough slack in the wires for your tailgate to open. Tell them you want the entire system I purchased, not a problem hearing the stereo with the top off. good luck! [ E BRENT Jul 08, 2015 ]
You won't have to move the seat there is plenty of room. [ CHRIS Jul 08, 2015 ]
The Stealth Pod fits without moving your back seat. It takes up approximately 1/2 of the available cargo space behind the seat. [ GEORGE Jul 08, 2015 ]
No need. It fits perfectly with the seat full back and the box follows the angled contour of the back seat. Works great! [ STEPHEN M Jul 08, 2015 ]

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 ]
