In the world of audio electronics, and more specifically Jeep Wrangler subwoofer systems, there are several direct, bolt-in systems that give you easy installation and added power from your stereo system right out of the box. Five of those systems are highlighted here, along with one universal product from one of the most iconic names in audio products. Enjoy our guide to the 5 Best Jeep Wrangler Subwoofers.

Kicker Powered Subwoofer Upgrade
The best kind of installs are clean with no drilling or cutting required to your vehicle. Kicker has developed a plug-and-play system of Jeep Wrangler subwoofers that provides a clean and easy installation, directly to stock mounting points behind the rear seats. Computer-optimized electronics ensure that the sound is crisp, clear, and matches the factory system in your Jeep while giving it the extra bump that you desire. A clean and sturdy enclosure also ensures that the woofer will be kept safe and secure while traveling down the bumpy dirt roads that we all love to explore.
Kenwood eXcelon 10” Subwoofer
Some companies have a cult following, whether we are talking about Apple, Coca-Cola, or Caterpillar. If you look at the audio market, Kenwood is a brand that some people swear by, and their eXcelon series of subwoofers is another example of a product that people love. This universal system (sorry, no specific Jeep Wrangler subwoofers here) is geared towards the do-it-yourselfer because it includes just the sealed enclosure and woofer. However, this is a gift for those who want to wire the system themselves and produce big bass out of a compact package.
Alpine Electronics Under-Seat Subwoofer Kit
Instead of taking the usual approach and mounting the subwoofer in the truck area of the vehicle, Alpine wanted to take a more direct approach and give the driver more bump right under the front seat. This Alpine system is a plug-and-play upgrade and mounts directly under the front driver’s seat. Note that this unit isn’t compatible with Wrangler models that are equipped with a factory subwoofer. However, if you plan on upgrading your Wrangler to one of Alpine’s compatible complete stereo upgrades, this is a great addition to your Jeep. Or, you can easily leave the stock system in, add this auxiliary subwoofer, and enjoy a little more bump to your tunes as you motor on down the trail.
CFE Jeep Wrangler JK Sub Woofer System
Designed specifically for the Jeep Wrangler JK (2007-2018) with or without a factory subwoofer, this CFE Jeep Wrangler subwoofer box is 100% plug & play. It comes with an 8-inch Kicker Comp S subwoofer and 300-watt Kicker CX amp with remote bass level control. All installation siring, hardware and detailed instructions come in the package to make your life easier on the install. According to the manufacturer, if your Jeep already has the factory subwoofer system in it, this box can be used in conjunction with your system or can replace the factory system and work as a stand-alone. The Jeep Wrangler subwoofer box is low profile enough that you can use your original Jeep floor mat on the top to help conceal the box from would-be thieves.
DS18 JBASS Jeep Wrangler Shallow Subwoofer
The DS18 JBASS system mounts to the tailgate of the Jeep Wrangler JK, JKU and JL models (2017-2019), so it doesn’t take up much space at all. This set up comes with a pair of 10-inch subwoofers (DS18 SW10D4), though speakers are sold separately. Available in red, green or blue, your Wrangler will really stand out when you swing open your tailgate. And the whole kit is only 5.9 inches deep, which means you have more room to store gear in the back of your Jeep.
