Intercoms...Who's using them?

Getting into the world of UTV off road adventure i was shocked to find that many people have never thought of two way intercoms so that communicating between yourself and passenger was easier. I personally find myself turning to the wife and screaming when i see something note worthy on the trail. She is deaf in one ear and this isnt always successful. Plus i have to take my eyes off the trail to make sure she is getting what im saying.

A few days ago i met a guy who makes an Intercom systems and i found many great features with saftey being the first.

How many people use intercoms and with the helmet on not a headset style intercom?

We just og an intercom system for a customer to put in his sandcar and he loves it so much now he is contemplating getting it for his prowler. His system is just a headset system for use without a helmet, but it is a top of the line system.

I use a Rugged Radios intercom system in my prowler. I'd say it's the best thing I have done so far. Mine is a VOX system so the mic's are only live when you or your passenger is talking. I connect my ipod to it to play music and when someone talks the music cuts down then when they are done talking the music goes back up. I am using over the head headsets. Here are some pics of my setup.

We have and use the rugged kit.. They are always on but you can turn the squelch up or down to only hear the vocals and not the breathing, plus it has an mp3 player in so you can listen to music and add a 2 way and you can do car to car.

We have kits starting at around $449.95

Intercom's.....Pro's and Con's

So i see the Rugged radios but ive also seen a company called Comzilla. Has anyone ever heard of them? Comzilla.com?

What is good and bad in a system? What exactly do you look for, i mean i cant listen to radio, chat on the two way and yak with the wife at the same time.. Is all that neccessary? I wear my helmet and i dont think i could listen to everything while im driving just because of the terrain over here in the Mid-east.

Any good bad and ugly you peeps want to share? I mean if you talk to someone that is selling or building to sell, their stuff is supposed to be the best and they invented the wheel but im looking for real life 6mos to a year use and whats good then...

There's a bonus to having the intercoms installed in the helmets, passengers will want to wear the helmet so they can use the radio and intercom...
