JBL sub enclosure

Was wondering if anyone has installed the JBL stock sub enclosure into a non-JBL 4runner.

1.) Does that enclosure have a mounting spot for an amp?

2.) If so how easy/snug of a fit is it.

3.)what size sub does it hold?

Thanks

Lots of people have, here are some answers from someone that has a JBL stock system.

1. Yes, there is a flat portion on the left side of the enclosure that holds the normal stock JBL amp. You could easily run a micro-amp in that space for just a sub.

2. It fits nicely into the 4Runner since it was made for it, you will want to source the plastic panel in front of it that has a speaker grille as well, otherwise your options are to remove that panel and it will look kinda unfinished, or install your own speaker grille.

3. You'll want an 8" shallow mount sub. Depending on the sub, you may have to trim some of the inside of the box, but that can easily be done with some tin snips/dremel.

I have pics of my sub swap (in factory housing) in my build thread in my signature, a quick search will turn up lots of similar threads of people swapping theirs.

Awesome. Thank you so much. I'm still super new to this forum and am finding it to be difficult to get accurate search results for what I want some times. I tried looking and found myself 7 pages deep of threads and still no real answer. I know it's out there, just can't seem to find it. I appreciate it.

Hey man another option is using a wood spacer and trimming the ribs inside the box. I did this and fit an alpine type r 8" in there after the aftermarket pioneer shallow mount sub blew. Much better sound quality with the alpine and worth the effort
