How Would You Like to Feel the Bass With Top Down on the Highway? Then Check Out the Best Subwoofer for Jeep Wrangler List

 

Welcome to the best subwoofer for Jeep Wrangler awards!

After spending the last 12 days on drilling, wiring, tuning and skipping my favorite TV show, which was mercilessly spoiled by my wife (I will get even with her don’t you worry about that), I’m ready to reveal the very best subs for your Jeep Wrangler.

I’m ranking the top 5 woofers on bass strength, size, looks, ease of install and price.

Look:

To find the perfect sub for your Jeep, you need to know two things do you want it in the trunk or under your seat and your budget. As soon as you know these, it will be easy to find the best fit.

In the past 20 years, I’ve installed audio systems in all sorts of cars. I had a Jeep as well, which I’ve sold years back because of my growing family.  I let my Jeep roam free by entrusting it to someone who can take it to a new off-road experience.

Anyways I’ve done the heavy lifting for you. Pick any of these subs, and you have a winner by your side. I’ve picked only the most popular sizes, so it fits your ride perfectly.

Let’s get some bass in my Jeep already!

 

#1 Alpine Electronics SBV-10-WRA – The Best Sub Overall Jeep Wrangler

And we have a WINNER!

This sub is custom-made for Jeep Wrangler and JKU owners. Besides fitting like a glove, you can still be able to move the sit back and forth. It’s a space saver and weather resistant so that it can take some off-road abuse.

It’s a 10” sub, rated at 300 Watts RMS so that you can anticipate a good thump. Thanks to the beefy magnet, the sub hits hard and clear.

For some reason, women tend to gravitate towards the seat that has this Alpine sub under it. I’m clueless why. Maybe because of the sweet vibrations?

Here’s why this sub got top of my list:

You can feel the Bass: no matter where you’re driving, you will feel it. I’ve tested it with the top down on the highway, and the punch was there.

Space Saver: this woofer is perfect for those who want amazing bass without sacrificing trunk space

Theft Proof: besides being an under-seat sub, so it’s not visible, it’s extremely hard to remove. The would-be thief has to remove the chair, and after that, the sub with the right tools highly unlikely

A few drawbacks you need to be aware of before you purchase:

My biggest gripe with this woofer is that the cover gest scratched way too easily. If you want to keep it in mint condition, I highly suggest covering it while the car seat is being mounted.

Since this sub goes under the seat, it might become uncomfortable on long rides. This can be easily fixed by reducing the power.

Besides these inconveniences, this sub is perfect. Since it’s specifically made for Jeep Wranglers and JKU, you can’t go wrong with it.

If you’re on the budget and you’re looking for something cheaper, then check out #2 on my list.

The last thing I want to mention about this sub is that it is very popular. This means that the units are flying off the shelves. The last time I’ve checked, there was less than a handful in stock. So grab it as soon s as possible before somebody else does.

Pros:

The bass is excellent. You can feel it even with the top down and on the highway

Thefts proof sub because burglars don’t see it and they have to remove the seat to get access to it

It’s the perfect woofer if you want to keep the trunk free and still enjoy some great bass

Cons:

Way too easy to scratch the case

It might be uncomfortable for the passenger on longer trips

 

#2 KICKER 11HS8 – Best 8-inch Sub for Jeep Wrangler

This must be a joke; an 8” what’s and eight-inch sub doing on the list? Wait, don’t underestimate this little fellow.

Since it’s an 8-inch sub (rated at 150 Watts RMS) means that you can easily put it under the seat, and you have all the space left in the trunk. It delivers quite a punch without turning you the dick at the spotlight who’s rattling everybody around.

The bass is simply perfect. It’s crisp and clean. In other words, it’s loud without disturbing the neighbors when you pull up, so no police fines.

If you want a well-rounded sound system with perfect lows, you’ve just found the best choice for your Jeep.

This is why this sub is a keeper:

It hits hard for 8”: this woofer delivers a decent punch without making the eardrums bleed.

Small footprint and compact design: since it’s small, it can fit perfectly where there’s no space, plus you can hide it under the seat so thieves won’t see it

Perfect Lows: if you’re a fan of rock and hip-hop, then you can rest assured that the lows will be perfect every time

Check out the drawbacks to get the full picture:

To get distortion-free music with this sub, you will have to turn to a professional. Even with the right equipment, it will take some time to get it right, and it’s all worth it.

The remote wire is too short for my liking, especially if you like to adjust the bass level to every song; you will have to upgrade.

Since it’s a small sub, it’s quite popular amongst other car owners. Many people who want to upgrade their car stereo ask for this woofer.

Because the demand is high, no wonder that the stocks are running out constantly, don’t let it happen to you. Buy it as soon as you see it or risk waiting.

Pros:

This is a small footprint compact sub that has the bump that you’re looking for

If you want to enjoy a rich audio experience, you have found the perfect sub it plays anything from rock to hip-hop.

It’s the perfect sub. It can’t be heard when the windows are up, and it’s punchy inside.

Cons:

This sub comes with a very short remote wire, so you will have to upgrade

Dialing takes some time to eliminate distortions

 

#3 MTX Audio TNP212DV – Best Dual 12-inch sub for Jeep Wrangler

What is this monster doing on my list?

Because it delivers all the bass, you need when you’re on the highway with the top down. That’s the only way to enjoy the ride. In this package, you get a beautifully crafted box that houses two 12” sub, rated 500 Watts RMS combined.

The bass is simply breathtaking. It hits so hard after the break-in period. The bump is hardcore.

Most people are scared to check out the price. Oh, I can’t believe how cheap this is; it’s a steal of a deal. Also, you can feel secure because MTX offers high quality.

All in all, you’re getting monster bass without hurting your bank account.

This is why this sub is a keeper:

When you want to go all out with bass: I hope your Jeep can handle it because if it gets too much power, it might crack and shatter the window.

Easy to install: there’s no guesswork, and there’s no way to mess it up. Everything is done for you. Just plug it in

The price is a steal: I can’t believe how cheap these monsters are. You’re getting a ton of bang for your buck

Check out the drawbacks to get the full picture:

Some people mentioned that they had experienced flickering headlights well; there are two fixes for it. You either turn the gain down or install a capacitor between the sub and the battery.

Brace yourself. There’s an initial burn-off smell. I call it the hard bass predictor.

People go nuts for this sub. With the two 12”, you can seriously disturb the peace if you want to. So here’s a heads up since they are popular, the stocks were running low for weeks now. If you’re lucky, you might just get one before they run out.

Pros:

Hardcore bass that is loud enough at 50% gain

Super easy to install because everything is configured for you

Super affordable, it won’t break your bank account

Cons:

A few reports about flickering headlights

Some said that the amp gets hot

 

#4 Skar Audio SDR-1X10D2 – Best 10-inch sub for Jeep Wrangler

When you first time hear this beast bumping, you won’t believe that it’s just a 10” sub. However, it’s rated at 600 Watts RMS, so yes, no wonder it hits that hard.

I call this Skar sub a sleeper because I’ve put it head to head with other brands that were 12”, and it has beaten them. This is how good Skar audio is.

The bass hit hard as hell, and compared with a killer look, damn, it looks all too perfect in the back of a Jeep.

The sound quality is excellent. You can enjoy all types of music, and you might tend to drive a bit more because it sounds so good.

This is why this sub is a keeper:

Beats 2×12” Kickers: enough said about this

Sleeper Warning: yes, gents, we have a sleeper amongst us. This baby is just a 10” sub and punches harder than many 12” ones

Budget Bass Package: Skar audio is known for creating high-quality products, and with this one, you’re getting some great bass on a shoestring budget

Check out the drawbacks to get the full picture:

This is one power-hungry sub. Wow. You might need to upgrade your alternator to a 320A one, or you will be missing out.

A few people mentioned that they are suffering from dimming headlights, and that’s easy to fix. Just install a capacitor, and it’s done.

People love Skar audio because they use quality parts and deliver amazing bass, so don’t be shocked to see if it’s out of stock. If this is the case, please return later and don’t miss out on this badass woofer.

Since this sub is so affordable, people are buying it like it’s a pandemic is coming. So take action now, so you don’t have to wait weeks for the new shipment to roll in.

Pros

The bass is so good that it can compete with the other two 12” subs

The insane price you can’t get better quality than this one

It’s ideal for small cars because of the short profile and minimum space requirements

Cons

You might need to invest in a 320A alternator to fuel the greed

If you have dimming lights, you will need a capacitor

 

#5 Rockville RW8CA – Best budget Sub for Jeep Wrangler

If you want to listen to some quality music in your Jeep, you’ve just found the perfect woofer for the job. It’s not only loud without being loud, but it’s clean with any music genre.

In other vehicles, the sub is perfectly loud on the inside, and there’s nothing to be heard on the outside.

As we know, the factory system in most cases is weak at best, and by adding this Rockville sub, you can round out the music nicely. Depending on where you’re installing it, the seat can be turned into a massage chair.

Some people scuff that it’s just an 8” sub. Well, it’s rated at 150 Watts RMS, and it’s plenty loud. Being a tiny one is still impressive because it can deliver a concert feel.

This is why this sub is a keeper:

Affordable and Rich Bass: for being a small sub, it can round out the stock system nicely

Side effects may include driving around more and taking every opportunity to take the ride out

Slim design: the shallow design allows you to mount this woofer under the seat, so you have all the space in the trunk

Check out the drawbacks to get the full picture:

Since it’s an 8-inch sub, you have to have the right expectations, so there’s no window-shattering bass, and it still delivers a decent punch.

Depending on where you’re mounting the woofer, the blue light might be distracting during the night.

Other Jeep owners like JK Sport and Rubicon have asked me to install this sub. They were happy campers when they left.

This Rockville sub fits into the smallest spaces, so no wonder why it’s popular. This means that units are flying off the shelves. Sometimes it can take up to a few weeks until the new shipment arrives, so grab it while you can.

Pros:

Low profile sub that is ideal for small cars or minimal space

Powerful and punchy bass as if you would be on a concert

Besides being a sub, it can be used as a great massager

Cons:

The bass isn’t that powerful

The blue light might be distracting during the night

 

Conclusions

We have reached the end of this sub-awards. By now, you should know which woofer is the best fit for your taste. As you have seen, I’ve picked only the best of the best in my top 5 list.

If you don’t want to do any guesswork and value plug and play, I’ve something for that. Also, I have picked 8 inch, 10 inch and 12-inch subs to fit in the Jeep.

Lastly, I want to mention that there are a few slim designs that fit perfectly under the seat, and you’re not losing any valuable trunk space.

Since these are the best, they are in high demand and not just amongst Jeep fans. These subs are flying off the shelves, so jump on it as soon as you can, or you risk waiting for many weeks.

As always, if you have questions or tips, reach out to me.

Roger and Out.
