JL are great. There are many dealers, but also look online stores.

Tweeter Usually has them set up to listen to in store.

Sounddomain.com Crutchfield.com if want more let me know I have a few diff stores online you can check into.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

according to JL's website they dont sell them online, at least no authorized dealers do. i'll have to head to tweeter since I know they are a reseller, maybe I can haggle between them and the ABT guys.

Can't go wrong with ABT. I also bought a stealthbox from there about a year ago, and got it for 10% less than tweeter. There are'nt too many places you can buy them around here.

Those Stealthboxes are rediculously overpriced. You could probablt get a custom-box made exactly to your specifications for less.

They sound okay, but I really don't think they are worth the $$. If you can find a deal on one on ebay, then I'd consider it.

Check to see if MTX makes a Thunderform enclosure for said vehicle, those are much more affordable and sound really good with a proper speaker in it.

Q-Logic make a box that you can put your own sub in, Also you can look at a Bazooka Tube for a decent price and easy to remove when needed.

Do they have a stealth type option like JL? Ideally I want to eat up as little cargo space as possible and not have the sub be visible. I'm open to other options if they're out there!
