    I have to decided to make another 4 wheeler radio this summer, although I don't have a 4 wheeler I will just use it mainly for tailgating and hanging out around outside of the house. For those who have never seen one before, essentially it is a car radio put into some 6 inch pvc pipe with speakers and you hook it to your four wheeler while riding. Has anyone made one before, because I would like to see what yours looks like? Also I would like to know how to wire it to run off 110 volts if anyone has suggestions on that. Here is the one I have previously built.

    This time around I will be doing a Y split for the speakers instead of the T split.

    Factory running boards, Toyota (DeeZee built) toolbox, Code Alarm 5152 remote starter, Bronze TRD rims, more to come....
    Depending on the demands of the head unit you use, you could always use an old computer power supply to provide 12V to your radio.

    Otherwise, a small inverter would be sufficient, I believe.

    That's actually a pretty badass little setup... I dig. Would be nice for camping.
