Stealthbox in Massachusetts?

Anyone in central/eastern MA have a Stealthbox installed in their 11-14 that I could listen to?

Trying to decide if I want to spend the coin, and would love to hear it first.

Did you end up getting those? How does it sound compared to stock?

Not yet. Will order sometime this coming week. Should be installed by mid may.

Many opinions on the stealthbox posted on this site if you search, I was just hoping to hear one in person first.

Re: Stealthbox in Massachusetts?

Stealthbox will be going in this weekend hopefully.

Stealthbox
Audio Control LC2i
JL JX 500/1
JL Remote Bass Knob
4 gauge amp wiring kit

Anyone in MA, just let me know if you want to hear it before buying. Will be creating an install thread early next week and initial impressions.

I'm installing the box myself.

I already have all door speakers swapped out with the Focal ISS series. 6x9's up front and 6.5" in the rear doors. They are being powered by the stock amp and i'm very happy with the upgrade.

The subwoofer is now very under powered, so adding the Stealthbox to round things out.

If you have noticed that replacing the stock like that is much better I'll be doing the same.

You'll get mixed reviews here. Some say its useless unless you get a more powerful aftermarket amp, and many will say replacing just the speakers with a better, more efficient speakers was a drastic change.

I'm very happy and it was worth every penny.

Bottom line is that it's clearer, more detailed, and louder than stock. Especially with windows open, the stock speakers would distort before it was loud enough for my liking...I don't have that problem anymore.

Re: Stealthbox in Massachusetts?

I did exactly what Andoskyy is doing. Swapped out the speakers with focal components in the front and coaxials in the rear. Added the stealthbox on a alpine 500 rms amp. Worth every penny. Much louder and clearer. Make sure you add the bass knob if you go this route. That sub will pound if you want it to or fill in perfectly and not disturb passengers with excessive bass. The only regret I have is waiting a year to have made the change. The speaker change was a drastic improvement but really brings out how poor the factory sub performs. I've had my setup in for about 3 months now and put it all in myself.

Thanks for posting that. Where did learn hour to replace everything, did you have a guide? Knowing where all the tabs are and what exactly needs to be taken off helps.
