Overhead console for speakers and sub

Been looking at examples of DIY overheads for speakers. Haven't seen many I like or that will work with what I want, so I'm going to wing it and try something. Just ordered Polk 6.5's and a DVC 8" sub fed by a soundstream 1000w amp. Plan on mounting all of them in an overhead enclosure and feeding it from a BT controller source unit. Pics to follow soon... In the mean time, here's pics of 42" LED bar and 10-color LED interior lites.

Its not really that hard to do, I made one for mine, I put an infinity marine stereo and 4 speakers in it. I made a wooden frame,then covered it with a fleece blanket from wally world and fiberglass resin.
before paint

finished/installed

unless you want to go deaf, there's really no reason for the amp in my opinion. My set up is 100 watts, thats more than enough for myself with the speakers right next to your head. I need to do some lighting in mine,I was plowing snow the other night and everytime I put the winch handheld down I have to fish around to find it again.

I'm already deaf....
Gotta have the amp for the sub. I like what you did. I may go with the fiberglass method as well and just throw some bedliner goop on it.

fiberglass is a PIA, the throw cost .99 cents a wally world and its easy to work with. I ended up with a rough finish (probably could have sanded it), then I hit it with spray bomb bed liner. Its surprisingly rugged, I picked myself (195#) off the seat by grabbing mine in the middle. Heres a picture of the frame before covering it, the top is (on the bottom in picture) is 1/4" plywood the rest is 3/4 plywood.

Here's the box so far. The amp will go in the middle section. I have a small 2" computer fan to put in there so it will have some air to cool the amp.

Finished: Mounted with 5 SS bar clamps. 1000 watt 4ch amp with two Polk 6.5 fronts and backs bridged to Polk DVC 8" sub. Had to add a capacitor to keep the bass from dropping out. Sounds great & bass hits hard enough to be heard while idling from outside the cab. Used a Pyle bluetooth controller as head unit. Now to get a full size car battery and isolator so I can use it while stopped...
