lh, the configuration that i had in mind was having 2 speakers next to my head one on either side comming of my handle bars off the back of my chair. i read on yahoo answers yesterday that a father did his son's chair that way. but the problem for me is i am afraid of damaging the speakers going in and out of the doors. plus, the amp would have to be on my left side where i can reach it i am lefthanded. as far as budget goes i would like get away for $100-200 or lessi am on a limited income. rick, if you can steer me on the mount that would fit my needs it would be appreciated.

i also would like some good base reflex speakers.

Right. I have been hunting a few things down for your perusal. So I will need feedback on this.

A ready made system, but not priced,

This is a popular amp for wheelchair users,

This could be perfect, but would need to contact Logitech, for the voltages,

LH,

thank you i think the amp one would suit me better. the rockwhileyouroll.com has me a little leary by not having a price range of their own product. kinda like they want you to fork over the money beforehand. hmmmmmmm now all i need to do is find me a pair of decent speakers that i can wired up. do you know of ant speakers that might work???

thanks again,

john

That's proved to be a bit problematic. I found a good few references to the speakers that work well with that amp, but no-one posted the full model numbers.
Do you have a decent audio store in your vicinity ?
