When installing a subwoofer in your vehicle, one of the most commonly overlooked aspects is the box being used for the application. Not having an optimum enclosure for your subwoofer is like a Jedi not having a lightsaber: Sure, he’ll still be dangerous but he won’t be able to cut off any heads. Ground Shaker is a brand that specializes in subwoofer enclosures and has a good reputation in doing so. They make their boxes here in the good ol’ USA which is very rare nowadays. These are without a doubt the best enclosures Sonic has ever carried.
I’ve had the chance to examine about 40 of their sub boxes and let me just say that they do not disappoint. The first thing I noticed is that they use very thick carpeting which results in a very clean look which is easy on the eyes. A number of the boxes come in two-tone gray and black which is aesthetically pleasing. They make a wide assortment of enclosures ranging from ported, sealed, bandpass, vehicle specific, ect. which means you will have no problem finding one for your subwoofer and vehicle. All of these boxes use high quality, thick MDF and come complete with durable speaker terminals. They even have subwoofer specific enclosures for the JL Audio W7 which have Dual front baffles and a bracer inside the box. Also, there are a wide variety for the Kicker L7 & L3 enclosures for all you Kicker junkies out there. They make their boxes in 8″, 10″, 12″, 13″,15″ so there is no excuse to not use one for your sub. Pick up one of these boxes and you won’t regret it!
Did I mention they are great for building office forts?
