    I just bought this JBL BassPro SL | Powered 8" Under-seat Car Subwoofer

    I am planning on having it installed under the driver seat. Does anyone know where the power, remote, and input wires come from? Is the 12V battery located in the rear of the car making the power wire a long run?

    Wouldn't want to have such powerful electric devices near my private parts ... sacrifice a less used seat instead.

    I'm almost certain the 12v is located in the center behind the dashboard on the S and X. Plenty of images on Google Images if you search "12v on Model s/x"

    Ham radio and emergency light bars’ control box are under mine, with a PowerPole power distribution block feeding it all. My equipment is working ok so far.

    I don't have any handy to post, but wanted to let you know I've seen this and will work on getting some pics up for you/others.

    I did something similar, but under the pax. seat instead of the driver seat.
    Subwoofers anyone?!
    The shop who did mine told me that this would be better as the base under the driver seat might be annoying if set to high...
    Never felt mine which is installed under the pax seat...Did have some complaints from the wife when bass is set to high :)

    What specific gear do you have under the seat. I’d also like to know what you did for any antennas?

    Would this fit under a Model S seat?

    No, I tried checking for my sisters Model S. The customer NVX one was the best option I saw for the S.
