Re: JL Audio Stealthbox Options

JL has one of the best R&D department in the business. For most people JL is fine, but for some of us it comes down to allot of other factors. There far better subs, amps, speakers...etc than JL for half the price. JL is great at marketing. Manville Smith frequents the forum at DIY, a great guy with allot of knowlege that will be straight up with you. I took apart the Stealthbox yester to find it suffed with poly fill, which isn't bad....but interesting. The enclosure is not very strong and won't hold a heavy sub. I plan t I reinforce it with MdF and a ton more resin. Nothing with JL....people tend to buy due to the name not realizing there are so many other options. But hey the TOP SQ vehicle at one time had all JL HD 750/1 running the entire system. He had one amp on each channel.. headroom is a very good thing.

Re: JL Audio Stealthbox Options

For about the same price as a stealth box with replacement sub you could get a custom made fiberglass enclosure with sub of your choice. I visited a highly respected car audio shop in San Diego today and for ~$900 they can build a custom enclosure with a 12" Image Dynamics IDQ. After they open it up they'll determine if a 12" or 10" would be optimal given the size constraints. It may protrude slightly more than the Stealthbox but not by very much.

I'm not advocating this approach. I'm just pointing out that if you're planning to spend $700 on the stealth set up and then extra on a sub, you have the option of going custom.

I would like to hear any replies to this. I am only replacing the sub, but will keep the factory amp. The factory connections have 2 set of wires running to the sub, but my jl audio sub only has 1 set of wires.
