    Any experience with those bluetooth speakers for UTV's?

    I keep kicking around the idea of putting music on my phone (even an old one) and playing music via bluetooth while out on the trails. Right now I have a Marine grade head unit and two 6x9's that should be decent quality, but sound horrible. Actually one quit working on me the other day. But I like the idea of getting rid of the speaker wires running thru the cab and simplifying things a bit.

    From what research I have done, there are two that I have in my notes.

    It has to be marine grade because I run topless most of the time. It has to sound descent. Needs the ability to mount to a 1-3/4" roll cage (Likely B-loop facing down and forward). And of course, budget is a concern. I'm not even opposed to a used unit if it's in good working condition.

    I don't want pods because I think they would take up too much space.

    Ironically, my ipod shuffle that has been MIA for 6+ years now has resurfaced. So at least I can still have tunes when there are no radio stations. But sound is dismal still.

    Anyone have first hand experience with those linked or something similar? Anyone know of a guy who puts these in their UTV only to upgrade them a year later??

    Thanks!

    I believe some of the guys on Classic Broncos have run the Wet Sounds stuff. They mount them on the cage.

    I have a similar setup except no controller, I just use the functions on the phone.
    Have you ever seen a man eat so much fish?

    My problem with pod speakers is that I occasionally still put the back seat in, so those would be in the way. They probably sound better than what I am looking at tho. Thanks for the links!
