Selecting Speakers For Your Motorcycle

A good ride can be made even better with the right music to accompany it. However, good sound quality on a motorcycle can be a little difficult to come by if you don’t know what you are doing. Here are a few tips to make the audio system on your bike better.

Do you have a fairing? If so, high quality marine speakers that are typically used for boats can work great on your bike. Boat speakers are waterproof so you won’t have to worry if you are caught in an unexpected rain storm and they are corrosion resistant as well. You might check out the marine speakers on this website. Boat speakers are usually white and that is not a good color for most motorcycles. Fortunately, you can also find black, silver and chrome speakers as well, although they are not as plentiful. Space is limited on a bike, but the larger the speaker, the better the bass response, so you will want to install the largest speakers you can.

No fairing? Then you need to look at bullet speakers that are designed for handle bar mounting. They are tiny and the better quality units can produce surprisingly good sound. However, you shouldn’t expect a lot of thumping bass from a speaker that small!
