many people mount them to the factor roll bar, some have used enclosed speakers because they can be mounted just about anywhere. some mount on wheel wells.

Here's mine, they're just not quite loud enough anymore though. :frown: I may just be going deaf though. ;p

I definitely need some up front as well.

Actually aside from listening to loud music I am pretty careful with hearing protection around all the loud noises at work and in the garage. I'm kind of a wuss and don't like the noise :D. I think it's the music.

Another thumbs up on indoor/outdoor speakers, especially on a soft top rig. Some receivers/headunits have issues with the ohm load though, as they are made for home stereo's 8 ohm vs. 4 ohm if memory serves correct. If cost is an issue look on e-bay. Also "marine"(boat) stuff isn't a bad decision either. Head unit, speakers, amps, and CD changers are all available. Again for that route search e-bay.

You can get impedance matching transformers at Radio shack cheap.

Sony EXPLODE 10" speakers bolted to fender wall mounted in inexpensive outdoor speaker boxes to look ugly and dissuade casual thiefs. great power and sound given I use no top and it is nosiy, you need power. I run all the cable in nice clean slipt loom.

BUT, I realy love this idea

you can bolt to cruiser at fender wall, lock them as they have internal storage area, speakers mounted inside are protected, and act as arm rests as well for rear bech seat.

Once I get a camera I'll throw up a pic of it, but I built a speaker box that is an entire car stereo system. It has the head unit, pair of 6x9 4-way speakers, and a pair of 5 1/4" 3-ways, plus switches to turn it on (like ignition and a complete kill switch), and a power inverter to use it in my room at college, as well as being able to run off of a cigarette lighter socket, a special plug I installed in my Land Cruiser, and battery clamps if a car battery hookup is necessary. Oh, and if those aren't available it is powered by a car alarm battery, all hooked up to a voltmeter and fused. I've got the plans if anyone wants them, but it is essentially a box that I can throw in the back for driving around, or haul up to my room for use with projectors, computer speakers, and it's part of the sound system for our fraternity parties. It's 23 3/4" wide x 17 1/4" high x 11 1/4" deep, has carrying handles, covered in carpet, 200 watts...

i'll get a pic of my speaker mounts tonight. in the rear i've got a parcel shelf with 6x9's in it... i hate 6x9's personally... it was a PO mod

in the front i've got some 5 inch 3 ways (pioneer) that sounds great. their mounted in the dash next to the door,

head unit is in the factory dash hole (enlargened). as you can tell i don't give a rats about keeping it factory
