Nvincent4708's 2014 WK2 Build Journal

One week later.. And I put a system in. I couldn't handle the no bass stock stereo.




You can't see it, but there are eye bolts on the side of the box and turnbuckles holding it to the cargo hooks. So no drilling to keep it in place.

Groundshaker Bandpass box off of Ebay brand new for $70. 2 Apline E-Series 10" subwoofers from my old box and a 600x2 Kenwood amp from 1999 that just won't die. (It was my brother's amplifier)

I used a RCA converter off of the drivers front 6x9 (Gray-yellow and gray-violet wires in the harness to the door) and used the rear 12V adapter for the Remote since it is switched on the RAP system.


Don't mind the mess, I vacuumed it after the pics.

I guess it was because it was linked to my facebook. I just put the pics on my photobucket.

Here is the system:

how do the 2 10's sound with the stock speakers everywhere else? I have some subs and an amp just sitting in my garage so I was curious to see what they sounded like in the jeep.

It was definitely a big improvement. The thing could use some good speakers though. But I'm not doing it quite yet.

Might be a problem if you drive in DC or VA.

Yeah, I turned it off when I went on NC this year.

But I guess if I need to, I can still unplug it and take it off and temporarily tuck the wire.

How do I get a mod to change the title of this thread and make it my build journal?
