Cool Tunes

I'm researching Bluetooth speaker alternatives for the Sportsman XP 1000 Touring. Polaris markets a piece of crap (based on size of driver, it cannot possibly sound very good with engine/road noise, etc) MB Quartz speaker (mounting hardware doesnt look like it would even fit the newer dash). I'm leaning towards marine speakers...

Is anyone running a decent Bluetooth speaker for the XP 1000 Touring?

Leave the stereo at home and pay attention to the surroundings, the load on the engine and someone who might be shouting a warning to you.

My wife and i have the Sena headsets installed on the helmets so we can talk on our Sportsman Touring. The Sena units will Bluetooth link to your phone so you can hear music. We don't play music when riding.

Check out the wet sounds bar. My brother has one on his and itís a pretty decent set up and easy to use and itís water proof.
