SUbwoofers?

Has anyone installed a system in their commander? Im a big audio freak, and have lots of subs laying around the house from old cars. i want to install my 12inch Kicker Solo X in a ported box with 1800 mono class D amp. Its loud as hell, and what my question was is this, when you have your stereo cranking does the commander rattle like hell??? it feels like a rather "plasticy" car and im afraid me system will make my car sound like a kia in 2 months.

I'm still trying to see what the best subwoofer solution is.... without sacrificing any cargo space.

Possible center console or under-front-seats locations... or into the rear driver side cargo panel (opposite from the rear HVAC controls). This will require some modification of the OEM panels.

Re: SUbwoofers?

chipster... what size sub are you planning on installing? 6.5? 8? 10? 12? i'd throw in a infinity basslink if you not looking to sacrifice your cargo space, or kenwood makes a 6.5'' powered sub system that can fit under seats that sounds decent so i hear...?

ps. your dvd and headrest look real good

Re: SUbwoofers?

You mean something like this I found this on ebay. Guy is selling the box for local pickup only. A little bit too much for my taste but might be what you are looking for.

Re: SUbwoofers?

It's sounds like in order to put a sub in the commander without sacrificing cargo space or the third row, you would have to modify the rear passenger side panel. I think that is the only place you can put on. Please let me kow if I am wrong or not. I am also looking to put a subwoofer myself but I don't want to give up the cargo space ot the third row seat.

Re: SUbwoofers?

No noticeable rattles to speak of. A good liscense plate frame and back as allways, other than that I get a little bit of rattle when I hit a bump, but not from the sub, it is the cover for the jack and tire tools.

Thats with an ARC 15 with 1500w of ARC Audio SE love on it.

Chipster009, if you are still trying to find that perfect sub. May I sugest a couple of Morel Elate subwoofers. Im pretty sure you would be hard pressed to find a better, thinner subwoofer than these. The 10" sub is around 3.5" deep. Small enough I had one in each of my front doors on a mazda protege 5 and could still roll the windows down (did i mention flush mounted with the doorpanel) You may be able to use the 8 or 9 and use a couple of them in an enclosure made to fit over the tire tools insted of the plasic peice that comes from jeep. **end threadjack**
