Our take on the Select Increments Centra-Pod

by Ken Nail

There's nothing like the feeling of the wind in your hair as you cruise down the highway in your Jeep. Unfortunately, all that wind and road noise can make it difficult to hear the music from your stereo. Select Increments designed the Centra-Pod speaker pod to improve the sound of your stereo in the demanding audio environment of your Jeep.

The Centra-Pod unloaded speaker enclosure mounts under the dash on the transmission hump of your Jeep — it's made to hold a pair of your favorite 5-1/4" speakers. The Centra-Pod radiates the sound directly towards the driver and the passenger, so you enjoy improved clarity of sound and better soundstage imaging. The tough plastic enclosure comes with mounting hardware.

Select Increments Centra-Pod

Written By Anonymous, Cove,Tx on Wednesday, February 09, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
PROS: Box is built extremely well and sounds great. Especially for the price.
CONS: It will not fit without removing the heater duct outlet if you want to shift the transfer
case into 4-hi. The pre-cut 5-1/4" holes were a hair too small and I had to open them up
a bit to fit my kicker 5-1/4" in. Great box if you use a little enginuity.........not so great if your
looking for plug and play.

Centrapod for Jeep

Written By Eric S, Pueblo West, CO on Saturday, August 28, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted to upgrade to the factory radio in my '91 Jeep Wrangler. In addition to a new
stereo, speakers were going to be a key component in th project. I ran a search in the
Crutchfield online catalog and found the centrapod. The description sounded like a
perfect match for me and my upgrade ideas. Bought it, installed it, LOVE IT!!!

Great Sound

Written By Jon, Poughkeepsie NY on Thursday, December 21, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a 91 wrangler YJ and recently purchased the centra-pod. Its like night and day with those extra 5 1/4 speakers on the trans hump. I loaded the enclosure with Blaupunkt PCxb542 it sounds crystal clear. The only modifications I had to do was cut the speaker holes bigger to fit the aftermarket speakers in the pod. Thanks Crutchfield!
