My install was under a $100 and works great. Pyle amp with i-pod jack for about $50 and Speaker box from walmart for $20.00. The bud Light is not included. You might try a different speaker setup. The speakers are fine but a little close to the noggin.

I have a question ???? Does the summit sticker help the 450 run better or is that what the bud light is for ? But anyway that looks like a killer setup !

Amp kit comes with i-pod jack and volume control. basicly all you need is the speakers and a switch. The Bud-lite makes you think you are running better. It also makes you look better, dance better, faster, and tougher.

Here is a link to the amp I have. you should be able to find it for around $50-$60. I think I found mine on amazon.

awesome.thanks for the input.im gonna use your amp set up idea and try to figure out something a little different for the speakers because my little girl rides in the middle in her car seat i modified for the rhino and i dont want to blast her out...anywhere you put them they will be right in somebodys ear though.

OK this weekend i ordered the hydra amp with all the hook ups and volume control.For the speakers i ordered some polk db series wakeboard tower can speakers.hopefully they will get in in time to install next weekend.how did you run the speaker wires through the roll cage.it seems like it will be a pain.Is there any tricks to installing the amp?

Yes it was a pain, but makes for a neat install. I mounted amp in glove box. Ran wire out side of glove box to the hole that is at the bottom portion of rollbar near front hood/fender. Drilled a hole where I wanted it to come out top ( about halfway between top cross bars ). I fed weedeater line thru roll bar from bottom hole to top hole. Once thru I taped string to it and pulled the string thru. The string works much better for pulling the wire thru. Use a enough string to do 2 pulls. Tape one set of speaker wires to the string and pull the first set thru. Remember you must have enough string to do 2 pulls. Tie the second set of speaker wire to the string and pull it thru. Drinking a Bud Light or two will help in the install process. Some curse words might help as well. Have Fun !!

My 450 is NOT fuel injected like your 700(nothing is on with the key except the dash ), so I have mine(the remote wire) hooked to the 12v power supply so when I turn the key to the "on" position mine poweres up(have main power wire to the battery)( your key may have an accesory spot that turns your 12v on but mine dosent) so it all depends on how you want yours to be , If I had fuel injection **I ** would switch it...... maybe I helped , or confused scratch

I switched mine to the remote wire. The provided instructions will show you how this is done. I used a lighted switch so I know when it is on.

Dcfox very nice. Where did you get you speakers and boxes and how much.

I don't know about the 700 but on the 450 in the battery box there is a plug (actually two which goes to nothing) that has power from the switch. I used a soirderless spade terminal and plugged it in so at any time I can just unplug it and remove it. I have my winch remote wired to it and my lights to another..

The amp does fine. Almost never turn it all the way up.

Alright Guys thanks for all the tips and advice.I got everthing hooked up this weekend...with the help of alot of beer and curse words.works awesome.I was really surprised with that little pyle amp.it rocks those speakers.the only problem i had was i buried my rhino saturday and shorted out the switch to turn the amp off.really my fault cause i didn't wrap it with tape or anything...Would wraping the prongs on the back with electrical tape be the best way to protect that so this dont happen again cause im sure i will be in the mud holes again..
