    In case anyone is wondering, since they don't list prices on their site, the ProBox roof with front led bar, rear led, and tree sliders is $2400.

    Said that too...
    No reason to take offense, just correcting some bad information you have picked up somewhere. The damping of the output stage in the amp coupled with the 4 ohm impedance of the speaker driver will not allow the transmission line -which is basically what the speaker wire is - to pick up external noise of any sort. Speaker wire is not shielded for this reason and don't be fooled by "high end" speaker wire companies that make this claim. Lamp cord will pass the sound just as well as anything else, despite what some "audiophiles" report. I am speaking from thirty years of amp design. Amps

    No offense taken at all. Thank you for your expertise.... I'll try the lamp chord next time.

    Here's what I did....

    In addition to the factory speakers in the dash ('13 XP 900 Bronze Mist), I installed speakers into the headliner, see pic below. (Polk Audio db651S 2-way slimline speakers)

    I also found this ultra-slim sub-woofer on eBay that fits well in the driver under-seat storage box. I got the BOSS BASS600, which has an 8" woofer and 300 watts RMS (claimed). Here's a link to the 800 from the manufacturer's website, http://www.bossaudio.com/auto/8-inch...att-sub-woofer. Here's a bad pic of it sitting int he box ready to be installed. I also bought a Kit-2 wiring kit from Boss, which included everything I needed to run all the wiring from the head unit and forward terminal block to the under-seat storage area. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Boss-KIT...item417041caad

    I have to say ProBox! I have this top on my 800 Crew with 4 6 1/2's and it's loud. The sound quality is clear and with the speaker location, you can hear it clearly over the engine noise. You can get them with LED's already installed in almost any configuration you want. I have a friend who got the new Probox top on his crew a month or so ago with a 30" bar on the front and a 12" bar on the rear, and they're actually recessed onto the roof. Good looks and very durable. Just giving a different opinion (The XP models also come with 4 speakers with same sound, just smaller roof)

    What are you using for speaker mounting/tubes?
