About the SSV Works GN-5A
Five-star sound for your Polaris General
Five-star sound for your Polaris General
Your Polaris General is an exceptional off-road vehicle, so why settle for ordinary sound? The SSV Works GN-5A audio kit includes the two-piece MRB3 digital media receiver, four custom speaker pods filled with great-sounding WP-A6 6-3/4" speakers, a compact 4-channel amplifier, and a custom-fit 300-watt powered subwoofer. Installation is simple, and your tunes will sound terrific.
Hideaway receiver and rugged controller
You can do a lot with the MRB3 digital media receiver combo. Connect to Bluetooth, listen to AM/FM radio stations, or plug a device into the optional AUX input. The amp that's built into the hideaway receiver can send up to 200 watts peak power to as many as 8 speakers. There's a set of RCA preamp outputs for sending signal to the system's powered subwoofer.
The outdoor-ready controller's bright white LED display is easy to read in all kind of conditions, and backlit, rubber-coated buttons are big enough to be used when you're wearing gloves. It comes with a weather-resistant mounting bracket that attaches securely in the center of the handlebars. The receiver unit mounts in the storage bin and still leaves plenty of room for your gear.
Your side-by-side is made to perform off-road and so are the four weather-resistant 6-3/4" speakers included in this audio kit. The front speakers are mounted in sturdy, custom-designed kick panel pods that bolt right onto your General, while the rear enclosures bolt securely into the cage using existing holes. There's no drilling and no hassle to it. The “plug and play” wiring harness makes it easy to set up your system.
The grille-mounted 1" titanium tweeters create brilliant highs that you can hear over the roar of the engine, while the durable poly cones handle everything else with depth and clarity. SSV Works' unique positive lock connectors keep the speaker wires secure, even when you're really tearing up the trail.
Compact, powerful amp
To give those speakers the power they need to really rock, the WP-A360S4 amplifier delivers 50 watts per channel to each speaker, while its selectable high-pass filter trims the low bass out for cleaner performance. It's pre-tuned to work beautifully with the SSV Works receiver and speakers. The installation kit is designed specifically for your General.
A stowaway sub
The 10” SSV Works powered subwoofer fits neatly into your General and adds plenty of thump to your tunes. Powered by a compact Class D amp, this 300-watt sub is weather-resistant and built to stand up to high-speed blasts on the trail or in the dunes.
Customize your speakers
The standard gray grilles look pretty cool, but if you want a little more color, you have options. The standard grilles are paintable, so you can mix up a batch and get a full-custom look. SSV Works also offers great-looking optional grilles, which are available in four colors.
