FYI - No Splice Sub Woofer install for Standard Radio

Since I bought my JK off the lot I was stuck without the Infinity Sound system and no SubWoofer. I ordered an MTX ThunderLink unit to install in the back but I really did not want to splice into the factory harness to get the signal. After lots of searching I found this .... no splicing ...

Looks like a good deal. Have you tried it yet?

Don't have all parts yet for the install. I'll report back when it's installed.

Looks like just a basic line-out converter that they have just spliced the plugs on. Should be super simple.

We sold the regular converters for $20, and you were probably looking at at least 20 mins if you had ALL the tools, scotch blocks, wire, etc. that you needed already. So if you aren't an avid installer and your time is valuable then it seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Nice find.

I received the PAC sub adapter ... it's a thing of beauty and looks to be worth more than they are selling it for.

The bad news is the MTX Thunderlink arrived and is too big in the back of my 2-door. So at this point it is destined to be mounted in the trunk of my 2006 Mustang.

I'll keep my eyes open for a factory enclosure to customize ... until then no Sub in the JK.

x2 mine was a pain and you dont have a lot of room to work with either!!! so i finally gave up and let the pros have it and they tuned it in nicely for me... 10" and 150 watts are more than enough for me it hits surprisingly hard and crisp...

It says it wont work if you have a factory external amp which the JK's do have under the dash if you have the infinity system

Correct ... this particular device is to install an AMP on the factory radio without the Infinity AMP option. I believe they also make one that allows you to install andadditional AMP on a system with a factory AMP. They have lots of different part #'s for different applications.

Here's a sub enclosure that's designed for the rear of the Jeeps: http://www.rdmoffroad.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=98

Fits a 10" sub and can be ordered with the sub and amp if needed.

I finally picked up an OEM sub enclosure. Will be installing an 8" Slim SUB in it and installing it soon ... Just need to find an aftermarket mono amp small enough to fit in the factory AMP location.
