Overview

Our take on the Select Increments Centra-Pod

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.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits my 92 YJ perfecly. I trimmed to fit 6.5 inch speakers using a jig saw. I used double sided command tape to hold to hump instead of screws which worked great. Good buy, free shipping and super fast delivery from Crutchfield as always.

Pros: Cheap Good quality Easy install

Cons: None

Great fit

Anonymous from Dickinson, ND on 3/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great fit in my '76 CJ7. I put 5 1/4" Polk marine speakers in so the don't get damaged without the top on. Easy to work with and modify for different speaker sizes using just a utility knife. Heavy enough that I didn't bolt it to the floor in case I have to move it while off road since it is very tight to the transfer case shifter, but it hasn't moved yet.

Pros: Custom fit Easily modified Comes with poly fill

Cons: Tight to the transfer case shifter

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Centra-Pod was the perfect thing I needed for the placement of the speakers I have. It allowed me to mount them far enough back under the dash to help with keeping them out of the weather. I'm looking to get something like them for the rear of the jeep as well.

Must have for CJ7

Shawn from Minneapolis MN on 9/7/2016

1983 Jeep CJ7
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The select increments centra pod is a must have! I loaded with Polk audio 6.5 and powered with 75 watts. Easy to cut a larger hole with jigsaw. Easy to install. The sound great and look like they belong. SO much more output than the 5.25 grill speakers not in an enclosure. I own the select increments center console with 8" kicker and they are absolutely worth the money.

Pros: Affordable. Easy to install. Good quality, good looking, great design.

Cons: Plastic box will never perform like an mdf box or fiberglass but it's a no brainier considering how affordable and good looking the select increments enclosures are.

Centra-Pod enclosure fits perfectly into 1983 Jeep CJ7

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed the Centra-Pod speaker enclosure in my 1983 Jeep CJ7 and it fit perfectly. I did make one change to the installation; I used Velcro strips to attach it, instead of screwing the box into the metal flooring of the jeep.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was pleased with this product. Installed it in my 1984 CJ7 Jeep without much trouble. I did have to cut out the speaker holes a bit to fit the 5 1/4 inch Polk speakers. Seems like a good sturdy product.

Cons:

Fury 3

Corey from Roseburg, OR on 5/20/2016

1996 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this item knowing it would not fit my 1966 Plymouth Fury. I formed an adapter of sorts out of a paper mache type product from the local craft store that conformed both to the transmission hump and to the speaker box. I then covered my new homemade piece with fiberglass and painted both pieces to match my interior. It looks great, and now I have an awesome stereo in my classic car. I installed 6 inch speakers in the box with a slight modification as described by other reviewers. Overall, this product is exactly what I needed (with a little extra engineering).

Pros: Good quality, able to modify.

Cons: Narrow application to select vehicles unless you want to put in the extra effort to modify.

CD from Texas on 10/12/2015

1987 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am a Massive DIY guy, so I debated building some sort of speaker box myself. Even though it seemed a bit high, I felt I'd be hard pressed to build a slick speaker box for that amount of money, considering time and materials. Got it in, it was nice thick plastic, had screws, jumper wires, insulation, even butt connectors. Perfect fit in my 1987 YJ Rockcrawler. I thought the sound would be cheesy, but the acoustics are actually pretty good! Way better than the stock in-dash speakers. Overall, very impressed.

Pros: Everything needed is there, perfect fit, well thought out.

Cons: Could be a little cheaper! :)

Soid Product

JO from California on 9/20/2015

1992 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in a 92 Wrangler. Great product! Easy installation. Great use of space that would go unused otherwise. The location improved the sound vastly. I had speakers in the doors and never realized how much sound I was missing. The pod directs the sound towards the driver and passenger.

Pros: Nice design. Easy installation. Improved sound.

Cons: Price. Ten to $15 cheaper seems about right. Ultimately it's a box with holes.

CJ5

Justin from Arizona on 1/28/2015

1979 Jeep CJ5
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wouldn't fit in my 79 CJ5. I have a 258 I-6 with a T150 transmission and Dana 20 transfer case. There was not enough room on the tunnel between the shifter and heater box assembly for the enclosure to fit and still allow the transfer case to be shifted into 4-high. Seems like it would be a great product if it worked for my particular application, but unfortunately it didn't.

Pros:

Cons:

Centra-Pod worth the money

Charles D from Gibsonville, NC on 11/19/2014

1982 Jeep CJ7
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Debated a long time btwn Centra Pod or home-made from PVC pipe or wood & finally bought pod because other options just changed the original look too much. Centra-pod looks good installed in 1982 CJ7 and it fits GREAT! Installed 6.5" speakers by cutting out opening a little, which was easy. Attached crossovers directly to backside of Pod so they are undetectable & fairly protected. This is a great product that is sturdier than expected. Would definitely recommend.

Pros: Unobtrusive, looks good, installs easy, adjustable, good sound.

Cons: None

I needed a place for two more speakers for my Golf Cart, I didn't want to cut into the Cart body. The Centra-Pod speaker enclosure is perfect for what I was doing. Very well made and sturdy. Not a piece of junk. I recommend it 100%

Pros: Its all good

Cons: none

Great space solution.

Rob from Richardson, TX on 8/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent solution to adding speakers to my 1978 Scout II. The pod fit perfectly on the transmission hump ahead of the shift. Should great and holds my 6.5" Polk speakers. Great sound in an open air vehicle.

Pros: Sound and quality material.

Cons: None

pod fits nicely in front of shifters.

Pros: installation was easy.

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.

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!!!

Pros:

Great Sound

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!

Yeah thats what i did, took some measuring and trimming but they fit and look good, i used a dremel to trim a bit at a time[ SAMUEL  Jan 01, 2016 ]
Yes. That's what I did.[ Scott  Dec 30, 2015 ]
I was able to adapt 6.5 speakers into it. You'll have to widen the cutout per your speakers. Other than that, it works great![ Hunter Chandler  Dec 30, 2015 ]
Depends how much room you have for the pod. My '78 cj was tight. I had to use a heat shrink gun to soften and mold the pod to fit between my heater and shifter. Issue is a good way to fasten to pod.[ Gregory  Dec 30, 2015 ]

I put an older pair of JBL 5.25" coaxial speakers in it. I had to trim the opening a bit to get a good seal.[ Judy  Aug 18, 2015 ]
