A motorcycle stereo system can bring your bike to life. However, with so many motorcycle speakers to consider, choosing the perfect solution for your ride can be challenging to get the most out of your favorite music. Luckily, Garage Bagger Stereo is here to help.
Keep reading to learn our tips for choosing the best speakers for your ride. We'll even show you some great products we carry here at Garage Bagger Stereo.
Your Guide for Choosing the Best Motorcycle Speakers
Choosing the ideal speakers isn't easy. Whether you want something loud and powerful or something simple and straightforward, there's a motorcycle audio system out there for you.
Follow these steps for choosing the perfect speakers:
1. Prepare for the Weather
Mother Nature is a beautiful, powerful force. When she wants to make her presence known, nothing stands in her way. Even if you only ride on sunny days, you never know when rain or heavy winds will roll through. That said, you’ll want to purchase all-weather motorcycle speakers. From wind and sand to rain and other debris, the elements can wreak havoc on your bike. Luckily, there are tons of weatherproof speaker system equipment out there.
In addition, look for dust-resistant speakers. When you're shopping around, look for options that can still work effectively when dirty or dusty. While even a speck of sand can impact the performance of a motorcycle audio system, you'll want to ensure your speakers have the durability you can trust.
If you’re searching for the best 6x9 speakers that are also waterproof, consider the MOTORSPORT 2-WAY 6″ X 9″ Flush Mount Speakers here at Garage Bagger Stereo. With 450W MAX power handling capabilities, you'll be jamming your favorite tunes while staying protected from the elements. Don't forget to purchase your all-weather amplifier!
2. Consider the Power
Another leading consideration involves the energy that’ll be powering your motorcycle speaker system. For this, you’ll need an all-weather amplifier.
However, not just any amplifier will do-you need one that works for your needs. To achieve this, think about everything in your audio kit that needs power. This includes your motorcycle speakers, tweeters, radio, and possibly a subwoofer. While all this equipment needs the necessary power to work effectively, look for amplifiers to keep up with the demand.
Another consideration to make involves the volume of your music. To drown out road noise, wind, and the loud exhaust of your bike, you need an amplifier that produces high volume. Before choosing a motorcycle sound system, make sure you consider all the noise you may encounter while driving.
To find a speaker system that produces impeccable sound quality, look for speakers with large-diameter voice coils. These help to increase audio volume without reducing quality. But for these speakers to work properly, you need the right amplifier.
Here at Garage Bagger Stereo, we’re happy to carry all weather amplifier options with incredible power. If you’re looking for a top-notch product, check out our Diamond Audio HXM800.2D Motorsport Amplifier!
3. Think About Speaker Wattage
When you're comparing motorcycle speakers, you'll want to focus on the wattage. The lower the wattage, the quieter and less powerful your speakers will be. Not only can this mean a lower sound volume, but the performance of the speakers can also drop.
When looking for the right speakers, consider speaker mount location, driving style, and engine noise. These all have a huge impact on which speakers will sound best. If you frequently drive along the countryside and don't have an overly powerful bike, you may opt for speakers with lower wattage. But if you usually ride along busy highways and congested areas at high speeds, you'll probably want speakers with more power.

4. Mounting Options
Another factor to think about is where your speakers will be located on the bike. While some people mount them on the rear, others install handlebar speakers or even helmet speakers to their ride. If you want superior sound quality, consider handlebar-mounted speakers. These project sound more directly, resulting in a cleaner, more crisp sound.

5. Features and Add-Ons
As technology is becoming extremely sophisticated, motorcycles and Harley Davidson audio equipment is now very advanced. As these systems have more features than ever before, it's best to think about which add-ons you need most for the best speaker setup. From Harley 6x9 speaker lids to Bluetooth motorcycle speakers, audio systems today provide tons of useful features that can bring your speakers to life. Some bikes even allow the driver to control the audio with their thumbs! Other features to look for include remote control, smartphone connectivity, and voice control.
