Really in all honesty its a good little setup i was scared when i ordered for the same reasons you are but its realy nice. We have no complaints, i would liek to add some kick panels and a the sub panel in the future but for everyday riding its plenty.
Man i will tell you what sold me. My last set of tunes i built from the ground up. I did the whole fiber glass thing nice head unit, nice speakers, led lights, and etc and it rocked but you know what i spent lots of hours on it and what a pain in the ass. So this time i was look and i seen this. Ummm..... set it in, 4 self tapping screws, and a 2 wire hook up. SOLD !!!!! hahahaha I guess you can call me lazy.
I have the older non-Bluetooth version of the SSV bar. It sounds good, not great, but for $640. Good enough. I added an amp and some infinity wake board speakers. That really helped. The actual speakers in the bar are an odd size. They are advertise a 6.5". But the are not the same size are my Polk 6.5" speakers. I am adding a 10" powered marine sub, get some "bump". This riding season I hope to really have my riding thumping at the park.
When I get home I'm adding 2 wake tower speakers to mine with a Rockford fosgate amp, ssv even sent me the adapter to the amp for free, it's plenty loud but I like to listen to music while I'm at the bonfire and such so the wake tower speakers should do the job
