I've been researching options for my Bigfoot
19. Do you already have a Head Unit/Audio system that you will be hooking up to the speakers?
If not, consider getting a car stereo system that is 12 volts. You can install it and the speakers in your cabinets (you'll probably have to cut some holes). It will not take much space (inside or outside the cabinet) and will provide decent to excellent sound quality.
The head unit's pricing is dependent on your needs and taste. For instance, I have an i-pod and that can easily be plugged into the back of a unit and kept out of site in the cabinet. If I wanted to spend more for Blue Ray features, I can control the unit with my I-pod in my hands as I move around the cabin. That's good news for any future purchase of, say, an I-pad
My problem is the cost of installation. Unless I can locate some old time friends who I can trust to do a quality job, I'll have to go to a good Audio store.
If you feel comfortable drilling holes inside your cabin and doing the wiring, you'll save several hundred $$$. Speakers (you won't need more than 2 for inside your cabin) aren't that much at all. And you can probably pick up an terrific head unit that will fit your budget.
Food for thought.
