    what is everyone using for audio in their sxs? Is it worth the money and can you really even hear it when your at speed offroad?

    I run the Rockford stage 5 and it is loud enough that I have to turn it down at times while driving.

    After going back n forth we went with the wet sounds sound bar. Compared to full systems it was much cheaper. You can hear it fine enough on the road and good enough during pit stops. Figured I’d spend the cash on intercom/headsets. Sucks not to have them on group rides.

    I would do head sets /helmets kits - intercom and radio (car to car ) before I would do a stereo, with head sets you get intercom and music and then radio out to your fellow riders in the group. When you stop somebody always has their tunes rolling..

    You can do the head sets in steps buy intercom and you get the music, talk back and fourth and then can upgrade to get the car to car down the road or do it all in one step.

    I have a Audio Forms top on my can am and it has it all - back up camera, tunes, sat radio, blue tooth, mood lights, led light bar and rear led light bar

    But I don’t use it as mush as I should because every time we hit the trail we do the head sets. Which blocks out a ton of engine noise and you can actually talk back and fourth with the head sets and listen to your tunes thru blue tooth or wire...

    I did not. Probably will add at some point but it isn’t a priority. Truth is we really don’t listen to it that much. Background noise during rides and then on fairly low during stops. The sound bar doesn’t take much to run. No need for a second battery.

    Forget the system, go with the headsets and bring a portable speaker instead!

    I like SSV, had their systems in our last 3 SxSs.
    SSV is way too slow to bring their stuff to market so we went with the Rockford Fosgate system.

    Specifically set up for and fits excellent in the Can Am X3.
    2 subs, 2 amps 8 Kicker speaker system nice RF head unit.

    Clear, distortion free sound, excellent bass and hi’s n lows.
    Has the back up camera feature.
    Jives instantly with Bluetooth with no fussy ness. AM/FM, streaming, XM.
