It could. See if you can get a customer reference for a demo. If not, and if you think the price is right, and you trust them to make the box right, it should come out OK.

Sorry, I thought you were already dealing with a shop...

If you are going to a shop to have this done, ask them if they can put you together with a former customer of theirs, if you don't trust them... but...

If you are at a top-notch shop, it will show. They will be proud of themselves, and ~may~ let you see their bays (which should be relatively clean & tidy) and/ or photos of prior installs. Talk to them, get an idea of their technical expertise. You don't want a shop to *touch* your car if all they know is "you slap it in there & it should work" type of stuff.

If you are doing it yourself, and you plan on going without a top on the jeep, plan to NOT have any cabin gain helping out the subs- try to get a fairly flat response down to at least 35 hz on your simulations, preferably lower.

Yes, done properly, it should pound.
Yes, JL makes good stuff.
