Sounds real good, after I found out it had bass
/treble adjustment.It has a 180 watt built in amplifier (45 watts per channel) so it has plenty of sound.I am using the two front channels and it sounds just fine !!!

Music Alternative

The JBL installation looks great! That might become an eventual project for me but in the meantime I would like to offer a suggestion for those not quite ready to cut holes in their dash and/or with tight budgets (like us retired folk).

Before purchasing my P500 I already owned a row boat and wanted to be able to listen to music while floating down rivers. After much research, I ended up purchasing an Eco Extreme Waterproof Portable Speaker Case that allows me to use my iPod while keeping it protected from the elements. I downloaded a bunch of boating and sailing related songs onto my iPod, put it into the case, plugged it up to the speaker, latched the case closed and enjoyed my personal music selections without worry of damaging my iPod.

Now that I have my P500 it dawned on me that the Eco would be the perfect accessory for an off-road, all-weather vehicle. No, it doesnít have killer speakers but theyíre good enough to keep me entertained when Iím in the mood for some tunes out in the wilderness or when stopped to take in a striking view of the scenery. The caseís attached carabineer enables me to hang it just about anywhere within the cab so Iím able to place it wherever I can obtain optimal sound (just donít clip it so close to your head that itís able to swing and bang your nogginí when you hit a big hole Ė Iím speaking from experience of course).

Now to download a bunch of 4-wheelin' related songs to my iPod . . .


*NOTE: I am in no way associated with this product, this is strictly a personal suggestion based on personal preference.

Chooglin,




I ordered the radio and speakers today from Rock the Boat Audio. One more project to work on in the coming weeks!


Wondering did you use the accessory sub harness...where did you tap in for power to the radio ??

yes I used the accessory sub harness !!! I just added connectors to the ends of the power and ground wires off of the radio,to make it plug and play.

Even though the radio will only work when the ignition is on,it will hold all of your settings,when the ignition is turned off !!!

gah pioneer I noticed you have a winch,if you have to move the winch switch to accommodate the radio,DO NOT PUT IT WHERE I DID !!!!! if I had it to do over again,I would have selected a diff. spot for it. I had to Cut a small piece out of the plastic, where the gauge cluster bolts in and it bummed me out....................lol
