Convertible rear speaker option that I built
« on: November 02, 2016 - 01:47:53 PM »
May get moved but I thought I would share a pic of an option to have rear speakers in a convertible.

I used aluminum stock from Lowes and a plumbing split foam roll.  Speaker boxes (6.5") are from eBay. Used electrical heat shrink around the aluminum hooks. Hoping to have the rest of the sound system installed this weekend.  Bluetooth amp (no need for a head unit), sub and under dash speakers (6.5"'s)

The bar is easily removable for shows.

At first glance I thought you cut holes in rear seat.
Nice job, good idea

I'm looking forward to some tunes after this weekend.  My iphone speaker doesn't cut it with a hemi rumbling.

Thanks to you, I stayed patient and got a great car!  You saved me from regrettable purchase.  Thx again!

Is stock electrical system able to handle this load or was an upgrade done?
