Polaris ACE Final Update
MTX Polaris ACE 570 Custom Audio Layout

So after a couple of solid weeks working extremely hard the ACE is finally done and ready to debut at the Mud Nationals next week. This thing turned out way meaner that even I thought it was going to be. Who would have thought you could put this much audio onto an ATV style machine? Great job to our master craftsmen on delivering a product that everyone is going to be excited about. Can't wait to see some video from Mud Nationals that shows off just how loud this little machine is. Make sure you come by the Polaris booth at the show to see both the RZR1000 Ground Pounder and this new ACE for yourself. Final audio product list for the build: (3) MUD100.2 amplifiers, (2) WET500.1 amplifiers, (2) 5510-44 subwoofers, (2) WET65-W coaxial speakers, (4) WET77-W coaxial speakers, and (1) ZN1-1FD capacitor plus a bunch of other items including dual XS Power batteries, colored LEDs and a Polaris source unit and winch. Check out these pictures of the finished pieces.

Polaris ACE Update

So it seems our crew is really serious about taking this ACE down to the frame. It looks like all the parts have gotten a sealer coat, an army green primer coat, and hopefully a finishing coat in the not too distant future. Looks like Heidi added a Polaris 2500HD winch to the front and as you can see they have taken this pristine machine down the bones in order to resurrect it to the next level as a serious offroad AND audio machine. Can't wait to see when they start putting it back together.

New Polaris Machine Taking Shape MTX Style

So if you don't know, MTX and Polaris, manufacturer of awesome off roading machines, like to get together and build some crazy things. If you haven't seen the RZR1000 Ground Pounder our boys put together last year for Polaris you are missing a serious piece of offroad terror. Polaris has recently released their new Sportsman ACE single passenger 4-wheel machine, similar to the RZR Series just smaller and with room for only one.  Well I happened by our R&D department the other day and saw that our team somehow had gotten ahold of one of these machines and are working on turning it into an audio beast to match the Ground Pounder. As I understand it, they are going to be adding a custom fiberglass roof with four 7.7" marine speakers, a fiberglass hood unit that houses two 6.5" marine speakers, and an amp rack that is going to live on the rear cage. We are going to be taking both the RZR1000 and ACE to the ATV Mud Nationals in Jacksonville, TX March 26th-30th and showing them off with Polaris.
