Overhead Speaker Bar Brands

I'm looking to buy a 6 speaker overhead speaker bar. I've found 3 different brands so far, in the pictures they look pretty much the same, down to the same speaker configuration and dome lights.

Do any forum members have a Seizmik, VDP or Rugged Ridge set-up that they can recommend? Or maybe not recommend?

Thanks.

I have the Seizmik with a sony 50 watt per channel sirius sateliite radio hooked to it, no extra power as I really--- no REALLY don't need more power. It has two overhead lites that are helpful.
With the speaker right over my head, seperation of stereo sound is not good. I will install two more speakers down at my lower firewall to provide the seperation I want, but in reallity, when I'm riding full out, I'm not listening to the stereo that much. Also, I want more base than what is coming out but with my radio, I can dial in very acceptable sound.

I have the VDP from Hunterworks, as well. Went and got a $90 Pioneer cd player with iPod jack from Wally-World. Sounds great, and I have accidentally pressure washed the radio. Still works! Gonna add a small amp and some marine bazooka tubes for a little bass, though.

The SSV looks like a really nice setup.. although I cross a lot of creeks and water is in the cab a decent bit.. how do the SSV's handle water? Also do they get in the way of your feet area?

I havent done any creek crossing, but I have washed mine, soaked them with a hose and even soft pressure washed them with no problems. I did silicone the speaker wire hole to the back of the speaker on the "firewall" side to keep water getting in the back of the speaker enclosure. Extended water pressure in the cab might be an issue though.

And they are nowhere near my feet when I ride. You dont even notice they are there.

It looks like there is no clear favorite in the overheads, so it might be a coin flip decision. I looked at the SSV speakers, but the overhead bar appeals to me. With the factory roof, I'll be able to mount my XM receiver next to the speakers, probably put the amp under the drivers seat.
