Has anyone attempted replacement of the factory sub (9 speaker premium sound) on a 2019-2021, that could tell me the procedure to access it? Thanks.

Well, he does have a point


May be better off installing a low profile all in one subwoofer enclosure under the seat to save some room. From my experience in previous cars, just swapping out the subwoofer wont do much. It will likely be underpowered as the stock sound system wattage (and the speakers) are pretty underpowered
I don't really consider 500 W Alpine system as "underpowered"?

Or you just read the thread I posted from 6 years ago. The alpine system is fine, the speakers are the issue, replace them and and system is quite good
Totally agree. All the power I need, and now I have the best sounding system I've ever experienced in the nine Jeeps I've owned over the years.

Not necessarily looking for more bass, just cleaner sound, which is what I accomplished with replacing the 8 factory speakers.

Is the factory sub in our 2019-2021's dual or single voice coil? Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply @AtlCade69 . Something else I just thought of though; is it 2 ohm or 4? Got my eye on a Rockford shallow mount 150W.

Perfect! What I thought. The RF is 8", 2ohms to each coil, 2.5" depth, 150W RMS. Thanks again @AtlCade69 !

Ordered an 8" Alpine dvc 2 ohm instead. Should have it in 7-10 days. Will post the results...

Well, after a long wait on shipping, finally received my 8" Alpine sub. Install was two hours, not as bad as I anticipated. The factory "sub" is a paper cone and fairly light weight. I have not had a chance to push it yet, but my initial reaction at lower volumes is that this Alpine produces nice clean bass. A nice crisp thump versus the "clunk" from the factory unit.

How well did the Type S fit in the factory enclosure, did you need to modify it or any thing else to fit it?
Dropped right in. Only thing I had to do was drill new holes for the Alpine flange, cut off the factory plug in adaptors and tin the wire ends, plug the hole in the box where the factory uses a torx screw that threads into the factory sub. I could have modified the Alpine to take the support screw, but felt it was unnecessary, we'll see, LoL.
