    Whats up everyone? I am at my whits end looking for an aftermarket sub woofer to replace the blown Infiniti shallow 8" subwoofer that came in another jeep.

    I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport with the stock stereo. I need to keep the same enclosure for many reasons mostly because my wife got the the sub for Christmas...i have a picture of the enclosure below. I would like to keep the grill if at all possible. This is a tough box, looks great in the jeep and waterproof to boot so many reasons to keep it.

    I have been to multiple car audio shops and shockingly they tried to sell me a special $300.00 sub that they would have to modify and end up charging me $500.00.

    I need a sub I can drop in with little to no modification. I have an alpine 600w amp powering everything and at this time. I am also looking to replace the stock CD player with a kenwood at best buy which appears to be the right size. Options?

    Hey Rob, I would start by removing the blown sub and taking some measurements or searching the model for a spec sheet. Then you can try and find one similar is dimensions

    Thanks for the intel.
    looked around a bit and found another board said the Kicker 40CWRT81 8" CompRT 1 ohm Subwoofer worked. I found it on Amazon for $112.00 so I bought it!! I bought from them Vs other online stores because I can return it easy it it doesn't work.
    I looked at crutchfield and they no longer carry it.
    I saw the depth is perfect for the box, hopefully the radius is good to go and the original grate will fit back over it.
    if not I will be doing some re engineering to it... lol.
    i will post my results and some pics....cross your fingers.

    Very cool. Hope it fits for you. If it doesn't I have heard of people buying a cheap plastic cutting board to sacrifice as an adapter
