This is what biggen and bigben did in out spare time last few days. it didnt turn out as clean as we wanted because the speakers were a little deeper than we anticipated and the mp3 hook up was also too long so we had to make a spacer out of plywood so that the speakers would fit with the JBS roof over top of it.

I was going to do that in the rzr i had, but didn't because I didn't think the speakers would clear. Looks like you got it figured out. I'm still running my setup with the toolbox bottom enclosure under the dash of the rhino. I'm going back to the roof with something new later on. I'm thinking about trying to fit some 6x9s in it.

Ran one power wire up the roll cage behind driver to a fuse block mounted on the backside of the diamond plate. Mounted everything to the diamond plate. Also have 2 cheap led lights from advanced for backup lights. The interior are not too bright just cheap led tubes you can buy at Walmart. Used the bracing on the cage ( inside the roof and D.Plate) and made a universal ground for everything. If i had to do over again i would've color coded wires a little better.

It looks like a spider web under the roof but it's not out in the open to be seen. Only thing you can see is the power wire a the wires to the back up lights

it is attached with the same clamps that Hot Rod Uses on his JBS roofs. used camper tape to help seal it off so that water can not get in. its a water proof system, but just wanted to be safe.

If we need to access it for a fuse or something you just pop off the 4 bolts holding the roof on and its all there

Yeah i will get BIGGEN (jeremy) to take some pictures. you cant see the clamps on the outside because they bolt on the inside of the roll cage so that they are hidden. the only thing you can see on the bottom is a hex head bolt. the nut and washer is on the inside so you cant see that either. they are just regular bolts so they kinda blend into the panel. when he gets pictures you will be able to see that there are little screw heads that hold the amp and fuse box in place as well. hopefully he will send them to me this evening and i can post them. i would take a picture from above without the roof on but . .. . . . . it looks like a spider web LOL i did not have an abundance of wire so i salvaged a lot from an old wiring harness and used those. BIGGEN needs to take the pics.

ok the bolt at the top is what holds it all on. there are 5 total that we used. the strap is on the inside of the cage so you cant see it.
the 2 machine screw heads hold the fuse block and the 4 at the bottow hold the amp.
as you can see we had to make a spacer out of plywood so that the speakers would fit with out hitting the roof
all of the small screws are backed with a nut. if we find them coming loose from vibration. we may need to loctite them.
my brother didnt send me any other good pictures. i can forward them if you want to pm me an email address.

view from the front



view from side





guys i know it looks crazy with lots of wires but there is a method to the madness. instead of buying all new wire like i should have we tore into it one night and realized that we didnt have enough wire LOL

so we robbed some from an old wireing harness that was laying around

not crazy about the wires running over the bars, but we put camper tape and and extra layer of electrical tape over them so we shouldnt have any pinched wires.

fuse block is in the middle with a main power wire supplying all 3 things. inside light, backup light and the radio.

hopefully we get to try it out this weekend.

ALSO, getting a speaker set up for the rear that hangs off of the same bar that we put the reverse lights up on. need to find some 1-1/2 inch clamps like hot rod uses on his roofs.
