I thought of that, but the rear pillar is mostly glass. Still, its an idea worth giving a shot. Not sure if the aluminium body can take the weight of speakers, though.

That is my ONLY storage box on the truck. It is very large and very capacious and carries essentials like the tyre deflator and the air cables + walkie talkies + camera + a whole lot of things I cant remember. No can do - I cant lose that storage space.

Yes, but would speakers only in the rear mean a totally rear soundstage?

On second thoughts, rear soundstage is better than NO soundstage.

Very nice and should be good - except that they mention it turns into an active sub in the car, which means you're expected to have other speakers anyway.

I can foresake a sub - low frequency sounds can make the sliding windows rattle, and besides I dont really think its practical.

A nice powerful component setup with a good amp should do it. I can mount speakers either on the rear doors or at the bottom of the rear pillars (same level as the doors).

Anyway nothing can be done immediately - the truck is going in for a 4.6 half-block off a Range Rover.

Basic ICE in a basic 4x4. Let's start with the rear position for the speakers?

you might want to think about the power consumption if you are planning to use an amp, and using it for entertainment - they will drain batteries faster than an HU

is there no option to get one in the front doors ? with a little cutting shutting i mean

I'm running a small amp on the very basic electrical system of my Classic. No problems at all.

I run 2 amps and one refrigerator on a similar sized battery on the Safari. Maybe thats why it went kaput when they left it standing still for 2 months.

I didn't mean regular usage. That shouldnt be a problem. using the ICE with the engine OFF for extended periods will drain the battery faster - as steeroid wanted to use the ICE as entertainment in camps

Keep the damn engine running! Fuel is anyways cheaper than bottled water in his neck of the woods.

Found a sort of solution for the front speakers when I went to the garage today.

4X4 (&) entertainment-image_028.jpg
4X4 (&) entertainment-image_029.jpg

I found the solution on this:

4X4 (&) entertainment-image_035.jpg
4X4 (&) entertainment-image_033.jpg
4X4 (&) entertainment-image_034.jpg

A couple of other automobiles were also lying around there, thought I'd put them up here:
4X4 (&) entertainment-image_030.jpg
4X4 (&) entertainment-image_032.jpg

Not bad, but the speaker position will be too close to your head and will literally scream at your ear. I think the rear position is best, and relatively inobtrusive as well.

That Wranger is seriously tricked out.
