Anyone put together their own stereo? It seems the options for enclosures are limited.. I have found a few that will house 5-1/4" speakers and an overhead box from Froghead ATV that you can put something together with.

Are there any other "DIY" options out there?

I am not interested in any drop-in kit like SSV or alike.

The Commander Ltd corner speaker enclosures look cool but not sure if they hold 6.5's

I went with 2 6.5" Rockford fosgate wake tower speakers then mounted an audiopipe marine amp behind the drivers seat, and ran an aux cord form the amp under the center console up through the back of the dash cubby hole part. I bored out one of the hole that are already there and mounted an ipod holder on the grab handle works like a charm.

yup. Where did you mount the speakers? And does the amp being where it is limit the seats ability to move all the way back?

No surprisingly, the seat goes all the way back and ill snap some pic in a bit. Its a stupid simple set up but works perfect.

The corner LTD speakers do hold 6.5's, but they're right behind you're head and you can only hear the one closest to you. That's kind of annoying IMO.

Wet Sounds has a limited stock of the XST-650's, and those on a OSS tower bar would be perfect.

I've already told you about the stereo in mine, amps work well behind the dash bezel. You can use the SSV Works/Wet Sounds kick panels and sub too. Todd Morrison from on here heard mine at Brimstone, and I think he was impressed....

Not many stereos out there eh?

Anyone running the speaker pods down in the footwell? Do you get decent sound from that angle or would it be better to cage mount?

image.jpg image.jpg Ok this is my buddy's set up he started with SSV over head deal with a ten under the dash.....
Now he is def with the SSV overhead thing/10" under dash, 2-10's in the yellow inclosers in the rear and the wake tower speakers.
You can't sit it in and turn it up, but while hanging out at camp or a rest stop its AWESOME for you and anybody within 12miles :smile:

Yeah I also went with an Ipod for ease of mounting and removal.
