Its the rear sound bar out of a pre-97 XJ, fiber-glassed to the headliner board, then covered in foam backed fabric.
The speakers are standard depth infinity 6.5in 2-ways with polyfill inside the cavity.
The switches are running a 10 circuit relay box mounted under the passenger seat via two cat5 cables, the second switch panel hasn't been built yet but goes where the passenger side aluminum cover plate is, the wires are already ran to it.
The key switch allows for the switched devices to run either on accessory power (only while the engine is running) in the right position, or run from the battery (anytime) in the left position, or be locked out entirely by removing the key in the off/center position, the key is only removable in the off/center position.
The red LED gauge cluster lights are #74 LED drop-ins, from SuperBrightLEDs.com, theses specificaly
, you'll need 5 total to do the gauges. The stock dome light also has an LED in it, this one
, with wire leads soldered to the pins to attach to the OEM connections.
The sound bar was done so i'd have music while the doors are off, and to give an overhead mounting area for switches, it works well for that. Car audio snobs will say the imaging sucks, which it does, but for 99% of the people that doesn't matter or they don't know why it matters, its a loud door-less XJ not a movie theater.
Some people also hit their heads on the bar while getting in the vehicle, once they remember its there the problem fixes itself. I'm 6'1" and have no issues with hitting my head while driving or getting in and out.
