Thinking of adding some speakers to your motorcycle?
Here are some things to consider before you make your purchase.
Type of Speakers. You need to first decide whether you want motorcycle helmet speakers, Bluetooth motorcycle speakers, or motorcycle handlebar speakers. This is a personal choice and completely up to you but keep in mind that handlebar speakers are the most popular choice for bikers.
Wattage. Wattage is important because the higher the wattage, the more volume you get. If you simply drive around town on your bike, then lower wattage will be just fine. However, if you use your motorcycle on highways where it is noisier, then you will need a higher wattage to enjoy your music.
Additional Features. It’s ok to simply buy speakers that will give you great audio, but since you are taking the time to make your choice, look into the additional features that you can get as well. Do you want thumb controls for convenient access while driving? This is a great feature to help you avoid any distractions while driving. Bluetooth will help you avoid the cluttered wiring when installing your speakers. Do you want your new speakers to come equipped with a docking station for your phone, iPod, or your MP3 player so you can enjoy your personal music or simply charge your devices while on the go?
Input Source. You can either buy speakers that have a head unit for their input source, or choose ones that use a portable device such as an iPod or an MP3 player for input. In most cases, speakers and their head unit input source are sold together.
Waterproof or Water Resistant. Finally, if you choose water resistant speakers, they will be able to stand up against some light rain. But if you drive through wet weather conditions or leave your bike exposed outdoors, then you should go for waterproof.
