    Hey guys, looking to get a factory sub enclosure for my 02 xls, I know i need the enclosure and the body panel. Any idea on year ranges that will work? Does anyone have one to sell? Looking for the 8" enclosure. Any thoughts or comments will be appreciated!

    from the looks of it any '03-10 should work. You can keep your panel if you want. I went factory OEM panel but added a 10" sub. Grill opening was only 6", wound up cutting it out. I had a post 'upgrading an audiophile sub' one of the last pic is of a stock grill replaced with speaker cloth.

    They go on the passenger side where that pocket is. You take that out and and the sub goes in. You can see a pic of one installed (not mine). Also on the drivers side you have filler pipe and jack mount that would be in the way. I've seen subs mounted on both sides but they've been pushed out with custom fiberglass enclosures

    3rd gens are different from 1st and 2nd gens. The oem sub would be mounted above the right/rear wheel. you would have to get the enclosure and panel from a junkyard/craigslist/ebay. At the same time, you can upgrade the oem sub & amp to aftermarket...refer to link for oem sub replacement

    but if you cant find one, u can get a jbl stealthbox that mounts on top of the left side compartment... > $250
