I used a company in Fruitland Park call Sta-Rite golf cart. It was $20 to pick up and return the cart and I got a Sony radio with speakers am/fb/cd/Bluetooth and a remote for $550 about 2 1/2 years ago 352 326-3100. Not sure if they are still around. Great people

There has not been a question that has not been asked before on TOTV, these past threads can be useful.

What Happened to Sta-Rite Golf Carts

You can have it installed at home by Todd Casey, he does normal maintenance and accessories including lights.

Why would anyone want or need a radio in a golf cart?

a CD player in the golf cart is a disaster, MM paths are too bumpy and the CD jumps and skips all the time. 2 other options, make sure your radio has a USB that you can play music from or get a $40 Bluetooth speaker mounted and play music from your phone.

Just get a Bluetooth speaker and connect to your smartphone.

OP, there are kits available, what appears to be the better ones are a tray just below the roof, with the speakers built in. This arrangement limits the wiring to just power wires going to the dash area. IMHO, you might want to see what is available and then get someone to install. I have installed 2 overhead trays in Yamaha carts, not too hard. I am sure the power wires can be routed in the frame supporting the roof.

I forgot to mention, I would not locate the radio in the dash area, unless you are planning on a marine grade radio. Also the comment about the CD player option is correct, it will not work well in a bouncing environment, like a golf cart.

Buy a Tiny Sony Speaker .... hang it off the mirror ... $50 ... and play it off you phone. Easy. Inexpensive. Great sound.
