is that JL? i think JL only makes a one sub setup for the back seat or a 13.5" W3 in the center console. im probably wrong. what box/speaker combo is that?

Very nice setup. I had a JL W1 12" in my Grand Cherokee I used to have and it was by far the best sub I have ever owned.

That is just a random box that is made and it fits my 10w3v3's nicelly. I think the brand is "ATrend". You can try and google that and see what comes up.

i run a kenwood 10" in the center console...i'm not much on thumpin' bass, just need a little substance is all. i made the center console mount/box myself...you'd never know it was there. looks completely stock.

I am running the 10w3v3's in a custom box. I still have the center portion and can stow my jack in the center. The amps reside under the seats...

Same box I have in my 06. Except i'm running 2 directed audio dvc 10"s. With the JBL speakers everywhere else, and my music it sounds awesome. But when my 17 year old brother in law wants to drive it, and boom out any civic in town, it's got more than enough. hahaha Very versatile system.

It's not the best but good enough were the wife is always getting on to me about turning it down. At 43 I still like to have music appreciation when I have just had a rotten day and I don't want to hear anything but LOUD ROCK & ROLL. If you want to know how the box was made you will need to read up on fiberglass. It is what the bottom is made of so I could fit the JL AUDIO 12W3V3 under the seat. If I could have made the 13.5 work it would be there but not enough depth and I like my center console and seat storage area

just fyi, I made mine to where the center console is still 100% functional. The padding of the seat has decreased slightly, but i NEVER have anybody sittin there anyhow. So if you ever are thinkin about it hit me up...its a 30 min. fix.:thumbsup

I was speaking of the hidie hole under the seat that you lift up the seat for access not just the top console area. We use it to hide stuff when on travel. I did look into that because JL has one for the 13.5 but went this route instead. Once in a great moon I do take 6 people and the wife is the one who sits beside me. These seats are already not the most comfortable but Dodge makes it and Cummins shakes it and I like power over comfort. :thumbsup
