Janaab, we are only making suggestions. If @mandeep has the will, he will find the way.

The FG tube is a lesser problem. He can request an FG sheet maker (there are always a few nearby, who make FG sheets to be used for roofing or gate uses) to make a tube for him with a specified ID, OD and length. Thickness (OD-ID) can be 10-12mm.

After that a carpenter can finish the job.

Since I am considering getting a MM540 in a year or so.. I had thought about the exact same situation.

Here are my amature ideas..

HU in the metal glove box. 6x9 Speakers in a metal fabricated enclosure at the back just behind the front seats. Marine speakers are a extremely good idea.

However I learnt that a AMP ~could~ be fed by a Ipod or another USB device directly. If thats the case. An Amp can be used for more thump. The Amp under the seat or somewhere with a Metal clamp with a lock??? Not sure how to really explain this.. but I hope these ideas help

Metal fabrication and enclosures for the speakers are a must for such the open top Jeeps.

Thanks a lot for your ideas guys...

I tried asking for mounting of a box under the seat but the service guy has his apprehensions about the leakage of water from below the body if i do that (unless i somehow bolt it to the seat itself... which can then again be removed easily)....

As far as glovebox is concerned... i do not have a metallic one (bolero invader).... so cant do that...

I guess creating a partition and closing the front part is the only solution coming close ( I dont want to do that though... but i dont want to be without music either... )

Why not build the HU box out of FG too. it wont corrode.

An alternative is using fibreglass boxes, but perhaps sheet metal is easier to work with if you are getting it done from non-specialist resources.

In the link below, @hydrashok mentions that Blaupunkt GTA series could be used for this application:

You can perhaps try out the idea at a Blau dealer before committing to it.
That would totally avoid the HU, unless @mandeep wants to listen to FM.

And yes, it can be mounted under the seat safely.

Not unless the boxes touch the floor. If you have access to FG fabricator, you can make it in FG - completely waterproof. Also, 6x9s won't need too big a box
