Me Again,
Am on the way towards sorting out the DVD thing, the next question I need help with is this: Has anyone fitted or tried to fit 6" round speakers into the two back wagon doors of a GU Patrol. All the one's I have looked at have speakers in each of the passenger doors, but me being difficult, I would rather add cup holders/map pockets on the rear seat doors and fit speakers into the rear of the wagon area.
Any expertise??

Just a thought, but if you located the speakers in the rear doors below the glass, would not that only work satisfactorily with an unladen vehicle. Loaded up, the music would only be keeping the fridge and tirfor etc amused??

Ross,
Have got a set of Alpine 6" speakers with separate tweeter which the installer said would "raise" the centre of the sound coming from the speakers, ie, base only from down low, this would minimise the loss of sound when the vehicle is loaded, can't really confirm this as I haven't seen this type of installation before

Ross,
Took the trims off the rear doors today, nor enough room to squeeze a drowning mouse through here so will have to give up on the speaker idea,

Get a speaker 'bar' that goes above the rear doors - that way you can fit some good speakers and even a light or two. rgds

Maverick,
Haven't seen one of these before, have you seen any or know of any photo's on the net of this type of installation? Searching through Yahoo! etc didn't find much.

saw some a couple of years ago in the sound comp. at the summernats. had a similar arrangement many, many years ago when i was panel vanning around the place - built them myself - also little lights and things (it was ok back then - at least no lighhts under the car). jeep has an overhead 'soundbar' settup for its wrangler. i don't know which state you are in but the strathfield people in wa have the speakers (so does every other sound shop i guess) and wiring and it isn't a difficult job. build it out of ply with aly framework and attach to the body above the doors. maybe have a look around for an o'head radio settup for the front and modify. mine are in the back doors and have had no problems yet (been there for 10yrs - replaced 3yrs ago). when loaded just crank the volume a bit and it's ok. kids used to complain but they use their own discmans and headphones now so it doesn't matter anymore. won't fit a dvd if i can't watch it as well. anyway portable dvd players are under $300 (again strathfield - perth) so maybe just get a couple for the kids and one to sit up on the dash in front of me (irresponsible - hell no). rgds
