HOW TO PICK THE BEST UTV SOUND SYSTEM?
One of the key accessories of any UTV is its sound system. Having the right sound system can either make or break the UTV experience. There are certain factors and elements that you have to consider before you settle for a budget UTV sound system. These will ensure you get the best bang for your buck when picking out a great stereo for your UTV.
EXPECTATIONS It is critical for you first to list what you expect from the sound system. For instance, if you are an avid off-roader, you want a reliable and durable sound system that is resilient to physical damage and environmental stress. If you expect your UTV sound system to provide you with good music even in rainy conditions, then installing a sound system with some level of water resistance will be ideal.
Every individual also has expectations regarding volume capabilities. Some UTVs have a louder engine than others, so they require a more powerful sound system that that can be heard over the engine’s roar. Others simply like to draw attention to their party on wheels, blasting their favorite tunes. Therefore, you need to ensure the speakers you choose have a minimum power rating of 50W RMS.
Most people who own UTVs are DIY enthusiasts, and they would want to find a sound system they can easily install without any professional help. You can achieve this if the sound system you choose comes with everything you need for installation, or it has a plug-and-play configuration. Otherwise, you might have to hire a professional to install it for you, leading to additional costs.
It might be challenging to determine a budget for the UTV sound system. UTV sound systems prices range from $200 to $4,000, and more. Having all these options may make it challenging to choose the right budget UTV sound system for you. However, being on a budget does not necessarily mean you have to compromise on the quality of your UTV sound system. Invest in a sturdy, dependable construction so your audio system can handle vibrations, shocks, and bumps and any weather conditions.
DURABILITY AND WATERPROOF RATINGS
When driving a UTV, you'll experience bumps, vibrations, severe rain, mud puddles, or various other road hazards and weather situations. Your quality UTV sound system needs to be built to last. You need to make sure the enclosure of the speakers is made from a durable material; Polypropylene is one that is commonly used. You should also make sure the waterproof rating of the different components is at least IPX6.
The sound quality of a UTV sound system is one of the most vital factors to consider, as it impacts how much you can enjoy your favorite tunes when riding with your friends. A good-quality sound system isn’t necessarily one that breaks the bank. Therefore, even if you are on a budget, you don’t have to compromise on sound quality.
