Music is one of the cornerstones of life- have you ever met anyone that didnt enjoy it in one form or another? SSV Works has built their empire on peoples love for music- and offroad powersports.
SSV Works has been building offroad stereo equipment for quite some time now, and their kits and componentry have evolved over the years as quickly as UTVs have. We have been lucky enough to work with SSV on a plethora of UTV builds in the past, and their attention to detail, professionalism, and customer support are top-notch. This year, SSV will be cranking out a ton of innovative new products on top of their already extensive inventory.
SSV brought out two built UTVs to the 2015 UTV Industry Ride– a RZR XP 1000 and a Kawasaki Teryx 750. Both units are modified extensively with electronics and stereo equipment, but they feature two very different approaches.
SSVs RZR features their overhead stereo system, which they call the WP series, for Weather Proof. SSV Works new iPod Weather Proof audio system clamps in overhead to your stock cage, installs in 15 minutes with a simple 2 wire hook up, and is totally weather proof. All systems include wiring, mounting hardware, and step-by-step instructions.
The fiberglass enclosure features a sealed compartment with a see-through cover for your phone or iPod, or you can connect your device wirelessly via Bluetooth. While the four-speaker system is plenty loud and sounds great, SSV went a step further with their RZR and added their new door panel speakers, under-dash speaker pods, rear cage-mounted speaker pods, and a couple subwoofers. When you have this much stereo equipment packed into a 2-seat RZR, the music is all you hear.
The Teryx didnt have an overhead WP system, but it did have amplifiers and subwoofers hidden under its bodywork. Fiberglass enclosures positioned under the dash and cage-mounted pods in the rear pump tons of volume through the stereo, and the whole system works without a head unit. This means you just plug your device (phone/iPod/MP3 player) into the auxiliary port, turn the system on, and crank it up.
SSVs kits use fiberglass enclosures that are custom-made for each UTV application, ensuring tight fitment that wont get in your way. The kits come with a full wiring harness that has already been cut to length, as well as clear instructions that make installation easy. When you order an SSV stereo kit, you are buying a true custom-fit package for your UTV, not a universal system.
If youre looking to add some tunes to your UTV, you can get your hands on a full stereo system from SSV starting around $530- and they are built to last. For more information, call SSV at (818) 991-1778 or log on to www.SSVWorks.com.
