Yes it is not sealed, I just ran the wire into the glove box and called it good though. I am possitive that the sound quality is not near as good as the system you installed, but I really needed to keep it cheap. Most of our riding is in the mountains and foothills at 15 mph or less, it honestly sounds compairable to the 6 speaker sound bar by VDP I had in my 06 with a regular pioneer deck. Good but not great.
Honestly I agree it does look exactly like the VDP, they sent me two mounting brackets, I could have mounted it directly above, but the brackets didn't seem to fit exactly, but mounting them to the handles like I did it ended up working great. The SSV system is by far better, my buddy mounted one on his Commander and it is good stuff. But for what I was looking for (good volume, cheap, easy) this works great. Like most of the sound bars this one lacks bass, but I may just throw a sub under the back seat and an amp under the hood, like I did on my Teryx and have more bass than I need. Hope that helps, I think it is a good way to go for someone wanting to keep it on the cheaper side.
