Auto manufacturers have actually made great strides in improving the overall quality of factory audio systems. Despite this, most music lovers would agree that the majority of stock sound systems could benefit from more and better bass.
While not everyone wants a ‘boom car’ with a trunk full of subwoofers, adding a bit of bass is one of the most significant improvements you can make to your factory system. Adding a subwoofer can actually be quite easy too; thanks to simple upgrades that can work with most vehicles.
Amplified Subwoofers: These all-in-one subwoofer enclosures offer the convenience of built in power matched to the subwoofer specs. In most cases, the built in amp features speaker level inputs that are required for integration with factory systems.
Vehicle Specific Subwoofers: One drawback of a subwoofer is the inevitable loss of cargo space when using a proper enclosure. Enter vehicle specific subwoofers, which are made specifically to fit in discreet corners and spaces of designated vehicles. Not only do you get a perfect fit suwoofer, it’s also tuned specifically to your vehicle.
JL Audio’s Stealthbox subwoofer line includes more than 100 vehicle specific
enclosures. JL Audio designs Stealthboxes after evaluating potential mounting
locations and analyzing the acoustics of the target vehicle to choose the best
enclosure type (sealed or ported).
Pre-Fabricated Enclosed Subwoofers: Already pre-mounted in a box designed to accommodate the subwoofer. These typically come in different sizes and shapes so you can choose the best fit for your vehicle and space.
