Under dash pods are in the works. What type of speaker setups would you like to see?

As much ABS plastic as you are using to make this set, why not make it a little bigger and make it into a complete dash assembly for asthetic purposes? The speaker pod idea is great, but to be honest it looks ugly as heck on the Club Car variations I have seen so far. Your E-Z-GO ones work well with the lines of the dash, but your Clu Car ones leave something to be desired in terms of eye candy......

Sorry, you asked for comments, I'm just trying to express my view on what you have made.

No worries on the comments, that is what makes dealing with the forums so great. I can only do so much by myself, some of my best designs come from the opinions of others.
The current design was created due to my equipment limitations. I am working on a larger machine to not only do the full dash kits, but to also do some new designs for overhead units.
The club car install kit flows fairly well with the dash, the gap and flush is fairly consistent with all of the factory components. Plus, it is easy to install.
One more thing... I dropped the price and offered the setup without the speaker enclosures (they are now optional for additional cost).

Some pics of the tweeter mounts. They're not the best pics, but I don't have a DS in the shop right now.

That looks decent.
Looks stuffed though.

I dont think 6.5" speakers look to well in the dash area on these carts.
Just too big with too little of room.
A 5 1/4" mid with a tweeter in the dash = perfect.

Have you seen my set up?

I have been trying to stuff 6.5" speakers where they don't belong for a while, it has become my 'thing'. The setup is a bit crowded, but sounds great. I was thinking about making a setup for 5.25" speakers, but wasn't sure if there would be a demand for them. It would leave more room to use the cubby's and such.

I have not seen your setup. Got pics?

To be honest, 5.25" components in your face with the right amp feeding them with the right amount of power, Killer sound.
I dont ever see a need for me to move to a 6.5" speaker.
Im running a pair of Polk Audio 5.25" Components with a MB Quart DSC450
amp under the seat.
This set up is perfect IMO for anyone with a cart looking for sound.
This set up is so freaking loud!

Here's a picture

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b2...e/IMG_0219.jpg


Ive got each mid in its own baffle.
The cd player is an Alpine 9886.

Im actually wanting to add to this set up, not because i want more sound because i have plenty.
But because i think my idea would look freaking sweet.

Im wanting to throw together a "sound bar" that hangs down from the roof,
Right behind your head!
With the same set of components. I need to get started on this project..


But your ABS stuff, it really does look alright.
Its the first ive seen of its kind.

I ordered something and haven't heard anything back. I didn't know if they were located in the path of the hurricane. I ordered a few days ago so just was curious.
