United Kingdom 2007 Defender 90 Puma 2.4 SW Stornoway Grey

You'd need to buy the LR accessory active sub / Amp which is genuine and likely significantly costly but would be plug and play I would have thought hence the wiring in situ.

I'm still working on my own passive system, the Defender doesn't lend its self well to audio installs as it is designed for purpose and not for audio.

The weather is a real pain because I don't have indoor parking in any way, but it's coming together nicely.

I have seen for sale an ex Defender SWE-1200 with LR plug but no control box or remote.

I am tempted to take a punt on it, but can anyone confirm that the original Defender item did not require the control box or remote?

My truck has the Alpine CDE-133BT head unit so would this control the sub, even though not supplied from factory though with under cubby wiring, or am I barking up totally the wrong tree?

So, I have done more research on here and thanks to K9F and others in this thread https://www.defender2.net/forum/topic5451.html?view=next it seems clear the OEM SWE-1200 has no controlller or remote and the the head unit will control the sub per the spec here https://www.alpine.co.uk/p/Products/SingleView/CDE-133BT

Think I might give it a whirl Razz

OK, so for those that are interested I ordered one of these, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alpine-8-Powere...2749.l2649 with some trepidation and it arrived today. Apparently they are out of new Defenders and the condition suggests that with just one small mark underneath. Backing plate to go in the cubby included. I haven't installed yet but feel it was a bit of a bargain and wanted to share. Apparently they have a few. Supplier might even be Twisted as it came from LR Automotive, Thirsk. 1993 200 HT

LR Surplus is part of Twisted. The sub you bought was a take off part.
