bikini top question

I just purchased a deck cover and i wanted to get the windjammer/bikini combo as well. The problem is that my jeep is my primary vehicle and I am worried about the soundbar getting wet. Is the soundbar waterproof in a 06 65th anniversary edition? I have found some weatherproof wrap for the soundbar but that doesnt leave room for the cab lights. Does anyone have a solution? I want an easier way to go topless without having to take down my soft top and put it up again every day.

I saw where some one flipped the sound bar in front of the cross bar. I don't know how reasonable that would be, just what I have heard

Or you could just get a safari top instead of the bikini. There longer and will cover the back also. They are a little noisy though. The back end flaps some.

X2 on the safari. It's pretty much all I run with. Mine isn't noisy though.

X3 on the Safari top recommendation which because it covers a little more of the back, is what I mainly run now. Just secure its rear straps properly and flapping is not an issue.

it is possible to move the soundbar, all you will need to do is lengthen the speaker wires and drill and tap new screw holes.

Mine flaps for some reason. Its not excessive, but gets a little noisy at highway speeds, although it could be the rear seat belts flapping, who know. Im just rambling now.

My seat belts used to flap until I removed em.

I tie strapped them together for a few weeks and that solved most of it.

Mine flaps but I can't hear it over the tire carrier making noise.
