Well I'm pretty much at the end of my built so now I'm installing a wet sounds Stealth 6 Ultra HD Bluetooth sound Bar,I also ordered a battery holder that's made for the PC925 Odyssey,I'll be installing the second battery under the driver's seat and it will be used for the Soundbar,I will put a battery tender lead from the battery so I can just plug it in and keep it charged when I'm done using it.....most guys run all day without draining the battery,,,,,,,I want to do this for our friday night get togethers at my buddy's,everyone that brings there Buggy's has to keep switching back and forth so they don't run down there main battery.Plus I will be using it in my garage also.....

Good One!
I mounted a Lansing Altec Boom Jacket on the roll bar and blue tooth my Ipod to it. But I want to buy a soundbar for it some time.

I had a guy give me a speaker setup he made for his RZR after he made a new setup. This one has 2 Pyle speakers, amp, volume control, and a input jack. I had a 12 volt plug on it and just used the accessory socket for power but I liked Mike's idea of having a separate power. I came across a old Ridgid 18 volt drill that didn't work and the gears starting turning.

I pulled all the guts out of the drill and cut the handle so all I had was the part the battery clipped on and part of the handle. I screwed it to the speaker box and now all I have to do is pop in one of my Ridgid batteries and I have sound! Just got it going tonight but still working on it, I plan on adding a switch so I don't have to pull the battery to cut the power. I've got 4 batteries, 2- 18V 4-Amp/Hour Packs and 2- 18V Lithium Ion 4-Amp/Hour Packs that I can charge and swap out.

You are a demanding bunch!

Right now I just have the box temporarily strapped to the cage until I get the switches install, might add a dome light to it also.

looking good , works as planned I hope .. an LED small light adds a ton of light when it's dark out , so won't take much

Hmm I do still have this battery out of the grandson's old Power Wheels Gator. It holds a charge for a long time, I could mount it under the hood and run a few accessories. I hooked up a couple 18 watt LED lights to it that I'm going to mount and after 4 hours I finally turned them off and they were still going strong.

That's a hell of an idea! Got my mind wandering all over the place right now thinking of possibilities to add power to! I knew I saved my old broken Ryobi 18v flashlights for some reason! Wow!!! Wore me out, I need a nap now...

I wire the 18w LED cube lights to the Ridgid battery also, with the 4 amp/hr battery the stereo and lights were still going after 2 hrs. The battery indicator was on the last light, so with the 2 batteries I have I should get at least 4 hours of run time with the lights, I don't think I'll ever run out of power for just the stereo. I just used some old switches I had lying around, now that I know it will work it's time to dress it up a bit. I also want to make the setup easy to remove to use as a stand-alone Boom box if I want. Probably would have been easier to buy a good bluetooth speaker but where's the fun in that!
