Big sound for the great outdoors
Ultra-efficient LED light bar
With built-in Bluetooth, big speakers, and a rugged, utilitarian design, Planet Audio's PATV65 ATV speaker system is ready to head into the woods or up a mountain. The PATV65 sports a pair of weather-ready 6-1/2" speakers with 1-1/2" soft-dome tweeters along with a built-in amplifier. You'll get powerful performance wherever the trail takes you.
Built-in Bluetooth connectivity and a handy weatherproof remote control allow you to stream stored music or enjoy your favorite apps while keeping your Apple or Android phone in your pocket and out of the way. You can also connect your MP3 player using the handy AUX input.
With the 12-volt powered PATV65 mounted on your ATV, you won't have to navigate by the light of the moon unless you want to. The built-in LED light bar gives you the illumination you need to travel safely without draining your vehicle's battery. The secret is a custom-tooled magnifying lens that covers the LEDs and amplifies their output for maximum efficiency. You'll get lots of light without using lots of current.
Made for off-road adventuring

Reinforced metal handles on the sides double as secure mounting points for tool bags, camping gear, or your action camera.

Planet Audio PATV65 reviews
This unit constantly draws power. It must be unplugged when not in use, even if you have the power switch off. This killed the cell in the battery on my fourwheeler after not riding for a month. I had to replace the entire battery.

Bought this speaker a couple weeks ago and since the first ride we have had problems with it. First it would cut off a lot Bc of the loose connector for the remote. Then after it got wet it hasn't had a real clear sound, a lot of static. But, after taping the connector it was great until it got wet.

Great sound and quality. Only drawback is the way you have to strap it on. Will not hold securely and it straps over the light bar. I am going to purchase mounting brackets or some better straps.

I am mostly happy with the product. It works flawlessly and the sound is really good. The Bluetooth works great as well. It seems really rugged, I haven't had it in mud/water yet but I have had it on some rough trails where the speakers took a beating worth of bouncing around and never skipped a beat. The only thing I am not a big fan of is that two of the four tie downs go over the front and obstruct portions of the light bar.
Pros: Sound Quality Loud Durable Bluetooth Aux Simple controller
Cons: Front-side tie downs that obstruct the light bar No option for direct wiring to the battery. 12v plug is a constant.
