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?

$50 each for end caps? you are getting taken for a ride.

http://www.lowes.com/pd_219-1814-PVC...ductId=3132571

$2 pipe hangers

http://www.lowes.com/pd_302045-34146...3D2&facetInfo=

$5 can of black spray paint

$83 for Kenwood Marine speakers

http://www.westmarine.com/buy/kenwoo...NEIxoCS17w_wcB

This project can be done for less than $130. I did this years ago. Ran the speaker wire through the roll bar for a clean look.

Wow, dragging up a thread over a year old to tell someone how they're being taken for a ride. How classy...

Well Shawn, seeing how people always say to use the search feature, I somehow stumbled across this write up. Nevertheless, if others use the search feature and they too find this thread, they will now know that they dont have to be taken for a ride and can do this much cheaper.

its good to point out ways to save money.. thanks.. on the other hand, I DID shop Lowes, Home Depot, and the rest of the hardware stores in the SPOKANE area.. and they DID NOT carry 6" or 8" caps.. I went to the irrigation supply house and bought them... I don't have a problem with that, I didn't get taken for a ride, I bought what was available at that available price...

Apologies, that it seemed like I was attacking you. It was more of an attack on the business that took advantage of you.
