YOU CAN NOW ORDER THESE A-PILLAR PODS WITH HERTZ SPEAKERS
Wicked C.A.S.*::*Speaker Pods*::*Toyota - FJ A-Pillar 3-Way Pods


We are very excited about these pods! We had a lot of inquiries to make these available and we have now finally found a way to make them.

Pods will be sold on our website and can also be ordered by phone.

UPDATED 2/16/09
NO MORE CORE FEE WE NOW HAVE THESE IN FIBERGLASS
AND THEY ARE ONLY $249.95 REDUCING THE PRICE FROM $269.95 + CORE FEE. To ONLY $249.95 and you get to keep your stock a-pillars.





Wicked C.A.S.*::*Speaker PODS*::*Toyota - FJ A-pillar 3 way Pods
You can also order the pods with speakers on our website. We have JL AUDIO XR653Cs and FOCAL K2 3-Ways available. Just simply choose your option in the option box below. You are welcome to call us and have them custom made for your own speakers you may already have; if this is the case you will need to send us your speakers (just the 4" and the Tweeters as we do not need the 6.5" or the mid bass driver).
If you want to keep your A-pillars and you want a set of modified pods, just select the option that says "pods + Core charge." This will get you a set of pods and you do not need to send us yours.

UPDATE 2/16/09
NO LONGER WAIT WE NOW HAVE FIBERGLASS A-PILLARS
AND YOU CAN ORDER THEM WITH SPEAKERS OF YOUR CHOICE IN OUR WEBSITE. HERTZ SPEAKERS ARE WHAT WE RECOMMEND.

Nazar - just PM'd you before I found this thread.

Question: I have airbags behind the A-Pillars. How does this affect them and can I do this even w/ the airbags there?

The air bags are only labled on the A-Pillar. If you take off the cover, you'll see that the airbag is actually above the window. I dont think these speakers would provide any issue.

Nazar,

I'm interested in a set of pillars that would fit my Dynaudio 360s. Would I have to send my speakers in for that?

Also, are all the pillars colors the same for all FJ's? I have a Trail Teams FJ and would hate to receive new pillars that don't match.

Thanks.

PS. What is the maximum depth for the speakers. I was just wondering if there is enough depth for the Dynaudios.

Yes I will need you to send me the speakers. I can pretty much make it work for any 4".

Make sure your set is a 3 way and the pillar speakers are 4" anmd tweeter.

That should work, I need the Speakers. Not the 8" just the Tweeters and the 3"

Thanks. I'll give you guys a call later and get the details.

It's difficult for me to tell from the pictures, but the FJ a-pillars are aimed towards the window. Does your a-pillar mod compensate and aim the speakers towards the listeners for better imaging and sound?

Thanks.

GOOD NEWS, We are working on haveing a Mold made for these A-Pillars. You will also be able to order them with HERTZ Speakers on our online store. Pricing will come down a bit and it will eliminate the core fee.

We will be stocking the HERTZ ENERGY and Hi-Energy 3 Way Systems.
6-4-Tweeter. Or 8-4-Tweeter 3 way systems. We will also have their Dome Midrange in stock soon.

They should, Keep in mind they are universal. You will get them unfinished so If you want them to fit perfect you can add a ring or recess them any which way you want but Most of the work is done. Unless you want to send me your speakers and I will finish the pods for you for a nother $120
