I'm letting the center speaker go and the rear hatch I bought replacements that could be run off a stock amp but going to see how it sounds first with the front and rear doors and sub.

Re: Do Not Try This at Home

Picked up the JBL MS-62C to for the front sound stage. Looking forward to getting them installed. Have to thoroughly dampen the doors with Stinger Road Kill first...

Re: Do Not Try This at Home

New to this thread but found it rather interesting. About to pull the trigger on a 2012 Overland from a 2004 Durango. This thread helped me make my decision. I am an audio guy 1st, vehicle selection 2nd .

Now let me contribute. For those of you fed up with wimpy bass but don't want to go to the extent of adding a JL stealth box. There is an option if you can find time and are willing to put in a little elbow grease:

Access stock enclosure


Make bigger hole / re-enforce front baffle with 1/2" MDF


Wrap in 8 layers of fiberglass



Put everything back together and install sub


Add a respectable amp to power that sucker


Well, the amp selection was a little overboard. But, you get the idea...

This solution offered a substantial amount of clean tight bass. However, I'm over 40 but still like to rattle my teeth once in a while. So, go to a bigger sub with slight mod:



Mind you, this was in my Durango. However, I see definite possibilities to do the same in a JGC. Keep tuned

For instance, want better midbass?







In the mean time if you are further interested in this install please see my main thread here. Warning, its rather extensive:

Regards,

Gerb
