It only makes sense that if you own a fancy, super fast automobile, you’re going to want to own a fancy, super loud stereo system outfitted with a big bottom-pounding subwoofer for cars. But for Jeep Wrangler owners (who usually shun cars altogether), the same love of loud, big-bottom sounding music also applies.
In fact, after purchasing a Jeep Wrangler, many proud owners start looking to up-grade their ride to fit their own unique style. This includes getting rid of that tinny factory audio system and switching it up with a much more powerful, more clear car stereo/subwoofer combo.
Says the experts, if you love music and you’re looking for a stereo component that can fill your Wrangler with bass, you need to grab the best subwoofer you can find. After all, loud, bass-driven music, is a must-have when you’re riding with the top down and the doors off. Therefore, installing a subwoofer that’s able to reproduce low-pitched audio is of primary importance.
Two types of subwoofers are available on the car stereo market in 2021. They are active and passive subwoofers. Active subwoofers contain a built-in amplifier, while passive subwoofers are powered by an external amp constructed inside an enclosure.
There are a lot of subwoofers to choose from and they vary in size, quality, power handling, efficiency, and of course, cost. Here’s just a sampling of subwoofers for your Jeep Wrangler that are considered by many to be the best.
Alpine PWE-S8 Subwoofer
The newly engineered Alpine PWE-S8 powered subwoofer was specifically designed for Jeep Wrangler 2011 models and up. Some say the Alpine is the best subwoofer you can get for your Jeep. It comes equipped with a superior sound system and easy bass upgrade, an 8-inch powered subwoofer, JK-specific wiring harness, and an all important leveling knob. Its PWE-S8 custom brackets allow you to mount the system under the seat so that you not only hear the sound, but feel it throughout your body.
The Alpine subwoofer is engineered with a 25Hz-152Hz frequency response along with an incredible 120W RMS power rating which gives it that extra big-bottomed bass-thump. This particular model can be shipped worldwide right from the Alpine USA website.
Alpine SBV-10-WRA Pre-Loaded 10″ Subwoofer System
Designed for Jeep Wrangler models 2007-2018, the Alpine Electronics SBV-10-WRA Pre-Loaded 10-inch subwoofer is also said to be an excellent bass pounding choice. Like the PWE-S8 model, it can be mounted under your seat but requires no mounting hardware making for easy, if not brainless installation.
The subwoofer’s 45-200 HZ frequency is said to guarantee the integrity of the deep bass when your top has been removed. It’s an ideal choice for Jeep enthusiasts who don’t wish for their subwoofer to take up a whole lot of space. Even at 10-inches, the dependable compact component can handle 350W RMS/1050 at peak power.
Want to ride your Jeep with the top off even when it rains? No worries. It is water resistant and dustproof. The subwoofer is also packaged with a water-resistant OEM grade Molex connector for enhanced sound quality. Also, not that you will need it, but Alpine will install this all-weather stereo system if you wish.
Pioneer TS-WX130DA Compact Active Subwoofer
Designed specifically for compact rides like a Jeep Wrangler, the Pioneer TS-WX130DA subwoofer boasts 160W of maximum power due to its built-in amplifier. Its frequency is said to be between 20Hz to 200 Hz. The subwoofer also offers different listening mode choices via a digital bass control. These “deep and dynamic” options allow for all varieties of music from rock to rap to jazz.
The digital bass control also helps you manage the frequency response. Pioneer designed the compact subwoofer to produce deep and strong bass under all driving conditions. Priced to move at just $250, the subwoofer is said to be ideal if you want a lot of bass thump but wish to save on space at the same time.
Sound Storm Laboratories LOPRO10 Amplified Car Subwoofer
The 10-inch low amplified Sound Storm Laboratories car Subwoofer isn’t just for Jeeps, but can be installed in any vehicle. It boasts high and low level inputs and will hook up with any stereo system available on today’s market. Because the subwoofer’s height is just 3-inches, it takes up very little space.
The Sound Storm subwoofer can be customized with addons such as remote control, variable low pass crossover, and subsonic filters. Its built-in, Class-A/B amp already provides loud music and low distortion so that you don’t need to purchase an extra amplifier. Yet another great choice for space conscious, music loving Jeep Wrangler owners.
