ATV speakers are waterproof and shockproof stereo systems that can be bolted or strapped onto the front or rear rack of an ATV. They can be specialized ATV speakers or handlebar-mounted motorcycle speakers, and all-in-one units may incorporate additional storage. It is important to consider durability when purchasing ATV speakers.

All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) speakers are shockproof and waterproof stereo systems that bolt or strap onto the front or rear rack of an ATV. In most cases, ATV speakers are the same as marine speakers, except with ATVs, the stereo system must be self-contained. The reason for this is that, with few exceptions, ATVs do not come equipped with stereo or other entertainment devices. The ride itself is supposed to be the entertainment.

Many manufacturers produce speakers for ATVs, and some even go as far as incorporating their speaker designs into trunks that are locked into place on ATV racks. Single-passenger ATVs commonly use these types of speaker designs, but side-by-side ATVs may use speakers that mount to the top cage, leaving the racks free for their intended purpose. However, passengers don’t necessarily have to choose a special all-in-one unit for their speakers. It is also possible to use handlebar-mounted motorcycle speakers. These speakers can be connected to the ATV’s battery or can be powered by an internal battery, depending on the speaker manufacturer.

Using motorcycle speakers on an ATV means they must be attached to the ATV’s handlebars or in a position on the rack bars where they will be out of the way. These speakers are much smaller and cheaper than specialized ATV speakers, but are just as weather resistant. Most feature built-in amplifiers that allow the speakers to be heard over the engine noise of ATVs, and can be connected to virtually any type of audio playback device.

ATV-mounted motorcycle speakers are much lighter than strap-on ATV speaker designs, but all-in-one units typically incorporate additional storage in the case the speakers are mounted to. This is a definite advantage on ATVs that generally don’t have a lot of storage space. Even the largest ATVs usually have a single dry storage compartment that can be accessed while the ATV is in use, and generally hold no more than 1 cubic foot (0.03 cubic meter) of gear.

When purchasing ATV speakers, it is important for the consumer to consider the durability of the speakers and the unit in which they are housed. High-quality marine speakers, motorcycle speakers, or ATV speaker units can be purchased from a variety of specialty catalogs, as well as many local electronics retailers. Buying these better quality speakers instead of cheap imitations will ensure that your speakers don’t have to be replaced after seemingly every ride.
