Double postWe had a customer that brought us their wrangler and said make like original with the sub in the console.
There's nothing there but an empty console and aftermarket head unit. The head unit has the RCA's for the sub so thats good.
I told him this won't be original speaker in there or amp...plus you want better.
That is perfectly satisfactory it just needs mounted the way factory did it.
So ultimately I guess I'm looking for first hand experience with using the console but an upgrade to the sub and amp whilst fitting it in there. What brand and model is a direct replacement and the amp as well.
You wouldn't happen to have some pictures of that would you?If you find an original console sub enclosure, you can dynamat the inside and use a 6 3/4” kicker sub. Sounds pretty good for what it is. I have my jl 5 channel amp mounted on the steering column. No lost space and everything is out of sight
I cut a piece of aluminum the same dimensions of the amp and bolted it to the aluminum part of the column, my Jeep is a 05. Then mounted the amp to it. The sub fits great, at maximum excursion the surround hits the factory grill so if you may want to remove that if they are unhappy with that part of the install.
