Please post pictures of speak locations, sound bars, pods, etc. in a fiberglass Manx style buggy. Preferable newer setups using current technology.

I have searched the forum and the web, but havenít been able to find much. What I have found is pretty old, with the advance in Bluetooth speakers and pod setups we could use a new thread

The 4.1 surround sound multi-media system (marketed for gaming on a laptop) in my Mini-Camaro kitcar, is fed by an MP3 player app on a smartphone via stereo mini plug (i.e. wired, not bluetooth). It has 5 speakers:

1. Front left channel
2. Front right channel
3. Left surround channel
4. Right surround channel
5. Woofer / subwoffer bassbox

Front left satellite speaker has power button and volume control:

Front right is behind dash, on which smartphone player is held. You can see where woofer is located in the forward firewall below. It has a heavy speaker and a turbo tube output:

Looking under the front hood, you can see the woofer box:

Surround channels are hidden behind a thin fuzzy cloth material that matches the look of much thicker fuzzy bathroom carpet on the back window ledge:
