Thanks Bagus!

For the life of me I could only find white marine speakers. Why is that?

Mr. Adams,

Strong work, sir!

What does the rest of your sound system consist of?

Dan, if you were to check some boats out, you'd find that 99% of them have White/off white, or a very light tan on the interior. Imagine floating in Lake Mead then getting back in the boat that has black seats. OUCH!!!

So the speakers match everything else.

What is the purpose of the center extension that holds the speaker box away from the roll bar, just to have something to tighten the interior nut against?

Thanks a bunch guys!

To Matt:
these are the only two speakers, and they connect directly to a pioneer deck with iPod control. I duct taped my old iPod to the back of the dash where nobody will find it. The speakers can handle something like 160 watts max 60 watts RMS, and the deck only puts out 55 watts max per channel, but it still makes great sound. Unfortunately, the PO made the deck hole in the dash below the oil pressure and voltmeter, and it required him to lop off the plenum drain tube. I swear man! POs stink!

To Bill:
I knew somebody was brilliant enough to know! And yes that makes total sense now. I'm totally a land lubber (besides scuba). Thanks bill!

To extreme:
The barrel nu actually slides over the 1/4" screw and only has the function of adding some curb appeal . But they are too long and they cause the speaker to wiggle on bumps, so ill probably drop down to a 1/4" spacer.

This is the deck I'm using. The PO had one of those Sony Xplod decks, but I love pioneer for decks, and I had this lying around from the switch to Bluetooth. NV has a hands free driving law now.

Man, that CB brings back fond memories.

I remember riding around with my Dad, in his '72 CJ5, and yucking it up with truckers on his CB.

Cell phones made those things obsolete. Kinda sad.

I have yet to use it, but it'll be great on the rubicon where most people have em. I feel like I was born 20 or 30 years too late

I wouldn't say there obsolete Matt, all of our club members use one, and are encouraged to have one. . It's much easier to use on the trail, and quicker. They are a great way for the trail leader to keep in touch with the tail gunner. A number of places we go, still don't have cell service.
I also notice CB's in quite a number of other off road vehicles.

Bill

they are not obsolete, all of my trucks have one, and Cj will have one. A must have in my service truck, and all our dumps, and semis have to have them, not allowed out of cab at the gravel plants anymore (safety) Well at most of the bigger gravel plants around here, driver is required to remain in truck at all times. Only way to communicate with loader operator and scale house is cb.

I can't drive without one, lol. But I know what you are saying, not as many CB's as there used to be, for sure.

Bill,

I bet you and your wheeling buddies crank CW McCall on your 8-tracks, too, don't you.

Ok, so maybe "obsolete" was an exaggeration. I figured you wheelers would be using handhelds by now. I think my CB went into a box, along with my brick-sized motorola cell phone, about 15 years ago.

Keep the hammer down, I'll catch ya on the flip side. Rubber Ducky...OUT.

Matt

Superb write-up and outstanding pictures. When its time for sound I now know exactly how to do it. Perhaps this should be a sticky.

Again, good work.
