Hi,
I have used the Jensen Hd910 in my Bobcat. It is directly centered over the door opening and the speakers are mounted behind my dead. I just got a 2015 ETX White LIghtning and I purchased a Jensen HD 910 for it also. I checked all over and the prices of the radio equipment is all over the place. Just Google JENSEN HD 910 and you will get many hits. I expect to mount the radio in the little cavity in the center of the dash. I bought somw speakers to mount in the upper rear window glass. I bought one of those short stubby, flexible rubber antennas which I hope to mount to the right corner of the roof. I have all the parts, and all the knowledge to do it. Problem it is very cold and I do not function well in the NEPA weather. I hope this helps and also that others will give you some input.

Do you listen to the actual radio a lot? If not I would recommend just skipping the whole radio. You can get either a Bluetooth setup or a wired setup that goes directly to amp the speakers.

Not sure what your budget is, but I have a ProBox top with 4- 6x9's and it's loud! Jvc unit, speakers, dome lights, and LED lights all configured into the roof

Well ProBox has many different configurations but mine personally has a 30" LED in the front, an 8" LED in the rear, dome light, 4- 3 way 6x9 speakers, and a JVC head unit all within arms reach. Mine ran right at 1300 is the reason I mentioned budget but this is my second ProBox top and I have no complaints
