Default Sound bar too heavy to mount?

Wasnít sure where to put this, so figured I just put it in the same forum as all my other questions.

Picked up the Bazooka party bar for a stereo on the cart. They offer a 24Ē or 36Ē size so naturally being a guy, I went with the bigger is better!

Thing is pretty big haha.....weighs 18.5lbs

If I mount it to the roof support, Iím fine, right? No worry of it being too heavy? Obviously donít want to mount it just directly to the roof.

Pic of it sitting on dash for size visual

I think you'd be fine mounting to the front uprights. Just be careful if you plan on running a windshield that you space it in far enough for a windshield to close properly. I'd hate to see you get it mounted only to find you cannot close your windshield. Nice cart BTW!

I think Iím actually going to fabricate a bar connecting the 2 rear supports and mount it back there

Since you are fabbing a cross bar, Iíd consider including some sort of triangulation support where it mounts to the uprights. Reason being is that adding 18lb up that high will probably want to shake the roof side to side like crazy any time you hit even a small bump. IMO golf cart roofs flex around more than necessary as it is. Now would be as good a time as any to make yours rock solid.

Lights came with the body, got the deluxe light kit. Included completely new wiring harness.

Iíll get pics up in a day or so, Iíve had the bar for awhile, ended up having a local shop fab one up. However, it didnít turn out ďas cleanĒ as he wanted and he didnít get a chance to paint it before I needed it so I paid next to nothing for it.

Just finally dropped it off at the local powder coater late last week and should be getting it in a day or so

I actually ended up mouthing is at the base of the struts just below the windshield, and went ahead and included triangular supports on the bar itself
