JL stealth box
 
I'm starting this thread so I don't hijack the "what did you do to your wk2 today" thread. The installation of the box is pretty easy but you will need to install a dedicated amp to it. I installed the JL JX 500. I also plugged in the bass control knob which works out perfectly. The difference is really shocking between the JL and the HK. The minute you take out the HK enclosure, you know its crap quality, sorry to say. If anyone wants pics or anything else let me know. The only reason I didn't install the amp myself is because I didn't feel like trying to find a wire for the remote power source. I have a buddy who does it for a living so he did it for me. I did do the actual install of the JL box myself. And FYI I did it with one arm lol. I ruptured my right bicep tendon, so it's out of commission for a while.

Is that what you bought/paid?

Yes but I paid $579.00 shipped. Took them a few weeks to ship from California though. I don't think many places keep this item in stock. I don't know of any vendor here that sells it. I'll pm you the place I bought from if you want. I don't want to advertise a non paying vendor.

For those interested or maybe contemplating doing this, here are pics of the HK speaker and enclosure. If you are at all familiar with car stereos you'll easily recognize how cheap this thing is. Also I forgot to mention on the right rear cargo trim panel you do have to remove the lower half. I did this by using a heat gun and heating up the tabs they melt over the holes to secure it. Once they started to get soft I just used a fiber sick and gently pried up. The instructions that come with the sub says to use a grinder but the heat gun was much cleaner and easier.

How is the quality, do you think the single 10" puts out enough power or would you have rather just added a sub box

Did you have to add anything else besides the sub, amp, and bass knob? Any line controller or anything? How did you hook the amp up the the head unit?

I'm really interested in this option too. Include me on the PM with vendor info. and all the details you feel like sharing... amp, wiring, etc.
