JL Audio Stealthbox®
Custom-fit fiberglass enclosure with 10" W3v3 subwoofer — fits 1998-2010 Volkswagen Beetle coupe (Dark Gray)
Our take on 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
This Stealthbox® enclosure fits in the spare tire well of the 1998-2010 Volkswagen Beetle coupe, with the spare tire installing on the enclosure. It includes one W3v3 10" 2-ohm 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.
Important Installation Note: This package includes a replacement floor that raises the entire hatch floor 3 inches, so the Stealthbox® will fit along with the spare tire. (You can also install the Stealthbox without the spare tire, creating a 1-inch bulge in the original floor.) To remove the spare tire, you'll have to unbolt the Stealthbox underneath the car. If you still have the Volkswagen CD changer, you may have to notch the replacement floor, depending on its location.
