I am going to make my own custom system with 2-tweeters, 2-6 1/2 speakers, and maybe a 8" sub. So what is everyone else doing.

Can't wait to see what it will look like I love all you other set-ups.
I am gonna do mine pretty soon as well. I have a Sony head unit and speakers to install. I bought the marine cover for the face. I haven't been able to talk myself into cutting out the cubby hole in the dash to mount it, though. There is room above it in the spot that says arctic cat, but only for the stereo, not for the cover. I am needing to do a rear cage, as I have already added the rear seats, so I am probably going to make an aluminum roof, and put the stereo in a pod under it.
post pics as you go! it is fun to watch other folks work on their builds!

sorry, no pic at this time but i have a PROBOX in the roof. 4-speaker x-configuration. Just this weekend I replaced my alpine head unit with a new jvc with front usb. Now I have around 900 songs on a flash drive that are in folders and I don't have to listen to and skipping cd in the pasture. Works great, been using similiar setup in my trucks for 2 years. I really like the looks of the probox and sounds great.

I bought a console from hunterworks and re worked the top part so my head unit fits. I am using wake board speakers for the back of the roll cage. I mounted the amp under the hood in the plastic compartment.
Finally got everything installed. I pondered a lot of options, but decided to buy the Arctic Cat headliner and hard top. I bought a Fusion headunit, which has a built-in Ipod dock inside (really like the size of the buttons and the display on the Fusion; marine stereo and speakers definitely the way to go, more for dust than water here in Nevada). I have 5" Poly Planar triaxials up front, and 6" Poly Planar triaxials in back. Had to fab a support brace for the rear of the stereo (towards the front of the Prowler) out of 1/8" x 1" flat bar; this bolts to the back of the stereo and to the x-brace/roll cage. Also installed a Sirius tuner; right now running the antenna on the outside of the cage.

Had one issue with wiring: decided to use the auxilliary jack that is on the right side of the shifter. However, had lots of ground issues this way, probably because I could not find an OEM connector, so I tried bullet connectors. These work fine for the power side, but not a good enough ground. I re-configured the ground, using those cowboy type connectors, and it works fine.

Happy trails!
