In addition to the high cost, I have another problem with the JL Audio Stealthbox - it's not compatible with the cargo cover. It's too tall. The cargo cover came with my RS6.0 and I like that it keeps the contents of the cargo area hidden from prying eyes.Phobic said:I would kill to have the money for the jbl stealth box!
I'm not sure if that would fit. It's a full-size "spare". The diameter is 26" and the height is 13". I'd have to measure to be sure, but I don't think that product would fit in the same space as the standard compact spare tire.Dude. said:
or get this, and a can of Fix-a-Flat.
Which means it's too big to fit in the spare tire compartment of the xB.Dude. said:Dimensions: 25.5''H x 25.5''W x 13''D of the speaker spare.
Or better yet, carry a can of "fix a flat" and/or use a roadside service like AAA....this would reduce the drag caused by the top mounted rack and the weight of the under chassis mounted spare...(I've been driving for over 50 years and the need for a spare tire is overrated....just keep good tread and as much as possible avoid sharp objects, curbs at speed, etc....) Come to think about it I had to change a flat tire maybe twice in 500,000 miles of driving.kingburger said:get some YAKIMA racks and throw it on top.
You are correct on the Fix-A-Flat and the TPMS...but, even at that, there are plugs and compress air systems available....need for spare is still over-rated.Velvetchrist said:DON'T use Fix-A-Flat!! Your car has TPMS sensors! If you shoot that gunk in there nine times outta ten you will damage your sensor. I want to say there was a company at SEMA that released a new version that is supposed to be much better.
