Off-roading is a fun activity that can challenge you both physically and mentally. According to research, around 3.5 million Americans go off-roading each year. No doubt that something this type of adventure needs is high-quality off-road sound systems or off-road speakers.
There are different types of off-road vehicles, ATV, UTV, Jeeps and more. But, no matter what you ride, it is essential that you get off-road audio gear. Regular sound systems and speakers just won’t do.
What to Look for in an Off-Road Speaker
Why do you need an off-road sound system? First because there’s nothing like hitting the trails with your favorite tunes playing.
Off-roading means riding on rocky, sandy or muddy terrain. You will need impeccable off-road audio gear that can handle any terrain your vehicle can.
Being on open terrain also means the vehicle and the passengers are exposed to the elements. You need an off-road sound system or off-road speakers that will be loud enough to compete with the environmental sounds and the noise coming from the engine.
The following are the things you should look for in an off-road speaker:
Part of the off-roading adventure is braving the environment and not stopping even through the harshest weather. Your UTV speakers should be able to handle anything your vehicle and passengers can. Different speakers are designed for different purposes so make sure you get the outdoor version, which should be weatherproof to handle all the elements.
When it rains, your off-road adventure isn’t just about surviving the rain. Expect mud to get into the vehicle and your ATV or UTV speaker as well. Ensure your off-road sound systems and corresponding portable off-road speaker or compact off-road speaker are all mud-resistant.
There will be plenty of bumps on every off-road trip. Every time the vehicle drives through puddles, potholes, and rugged terrains, the vehicle is expected to move at all angles. Regular speakers would either produce erratic sounds or would stop projecting audio altogether. Shockproof speakers and amplifiers will ensure you enjoy the music no matter how crazy the terrain becomes.
Easy to Install
The sound system and corresponding speakers, even if it is a portable off-road speaker, must be installed so that it stays in place. Driving through rugged terrains means there is a possibility that the audio system and its accessories will be dislodged unless installed properly. Find items that have brackets that make the off-road speaker easy to install on ATVs or UTVs.
Obviously, you would want a UTV audio system that has excellent sound quality. It is advised to test the speakers with different genres of music to make sure the sound quality meets your expectations and that you receive an ample amount of high mid and low frequencies.
When considering an off-road sound system, ensure your off-road speaker can connect via Bluetooth or AUX.
