How are your homemade ones holding up?
Thanks man, it's been several months without single complaint. Even when I'm bouncing down the trail they are solid and sound great.

I appreciate the interest in my speakers but you may find my rates higher than you'd like. Here's a breakdown of the cost of parts alone.

-Speakers ~$100
-PVC caps 2x~$50 (may be able to get them cheaper)
-exhaust clamps ~$13
-wood, hardware, paint, & gaskets ~$30

That's about $250 before I even start.

almost exactly what we used to do at our "Diablo Off Road Center" up in Concord Calif... we used steel pipe, capped one side, used grommets to wire through, into the roll bar, and feed out the bottom with another grommet.. no wires show, then we welded the steel tube into that V in the roll cage, mounted the speakers and wa la.. instant theft proof sound.. yours are what I'm in the process of doing to mine right now, not using the steel, but an end cap... I went 8" (expensive suckers), in hopes of a little smaller main spkr, and slip a tweeter in beside it.. we'll see what happens.. like the way yours came out, good going!

I found the 6" end caps for $13.00 a piece at a local shop that specializes in drain pipes.. so I put the 8" on the shelf for now, might make something out of them later.. just don't need that much sound.. here's mine, different mounting.. didn't go with the anti-theft mount, probably should have, and still may.. having the covers made for my roll bar, so that might be the time to modify.. or just "be happy".. I did find it much easier to cover the end caps with bedliner.. it sticks to anything.. just roll it on..

Looks like the turned out really nice! Does the foam help the sound quality any?
