The video raises more questions than answers! I see no speakers or amp. I hear 80's rock. Loud and clear! What am I missing here?

ok heres what i did. i have a set of altec lansing sweet speakers with a sub woofer. computer speakers. they are thin with a bubble at the bottom of them. put a speaker one way and the 2nd speaker the other way in the center cup holder. they fit in perfect and tight. and put sub on passenger floor. still plenty of leg room. great loud sound til around 50mph. but whos gonna do 50 on trails? not me. 15 to 25. im in no hurry on vacation. plus i have a windshield which takes wind noise away. sound drowned out at 50 with windshield off. I am ready for the next trip to MI U.P in sept. And i did this because i couldnt justify dropping a grand on a radio for something i dont drive everyday. I will post some pics.lol. took 2 min to hook up. and used a inverter in the 12v outlet so i could plug the speakers in. that was half volume. Never know this idea may catch on but ya need powerful great sounding loud puter speakers.lol. just cant use it if it rains. no biggie

i'v bin useing the laptop speaker deal for about 3months now. i have the black tube altec that i have velcroed to the top of the roll bar. i cut the wires and run them from my little 20$ riobi radio i have mounted between the seats. i also power that cordless radio from the commander, so theres no battery to worry about. i now have those speakers facing the back for just the radio. i have a lanzing speaker system now that plays just my ipod, and those speakers face forward.
