Whether traveling cross-country or cruising around town, adding speakers to your bike will make your ride so much better. Our team looks at some of the best motorcycle sound bars you can buy to liven up your drive.
1. Kuryakyn 2720 MTX Road Thunder Sound Bar Plus
Kuryakyn speakers have a reputation as the best for a reason. This sound bar delivers powerful audio even with the wind roaring past you on the road. It packs a nice punch with an impressive 300-watt peak capacity, allowing you to add an amplifier for more volume.
This model is sleek and carefully designed to fit snugly on your bike’s handlebars. You have six easily accessible buttons you can control the speaker with, and installation is effortless.
Though the price is higher than all the other sound bars on this list combined, it’s safe to say that it’s worth it if you’re looking for a big, quality sound.
2. GoHawk RD8 Gen 2 Waterproof Bluetooth Sound Bar
This GoHawk sound bar is a fraction of the price of the first one on this list, but it has a comparably robust sound. You can jam to your favorite bands and get an excellent dynamic range for any genre you choose.
This sound bar has a durable build and several convenient features such as a built-in FM radio, SD card slots, and wired and Bluetooth connections. However, it won’t be as easy to hear the music when you’re flying down the highway since it has a lower power capacity, but it would be perfect for slow rides through city streets.
3. Boss ATV25B All-Terrain Sound System
All you have to do is attach it and plug it in, and you’re ready to go with this sound bar. This Boss sound system has a whopping 450-watt capacity, meaning it will go as loud as you want. The sound itself is distinct enough to hear the highs and lows, but you’ll find better quality from other sound bars on this list.
The installation is super easy, but you might struggle with its size when fitting it on your bike’s handlebars. However, this should be your pick if a monstrous sound is what you’re looking for over anything else.
4. GoHawk RE9-X Waterproof Bluetooth LED Soundbar
We’ve got a cheap but quality pick for you in this sound bar. You’ll be able to hear this one even at mid to high speeds, and it mounts firmly to your motorcycle’s handlebars so that the sound is perfectly centered. The sound quality isn’t mind-blowing, but it’s surprisingly good for the price point.
A bit unique for a sound bar, the RE9-X has a white LED strip on the back that you can turn on and off with a button. It also has Bluetooth connectivity, so you can use your phone to pick your tunes.
The build isn’t as durable as the other motorcycle sound bars we reviewed, but it is waterproof and should withstand most weather.
5. OPL5 Motorcycle Speaker System
The OPL5 is another cheap option for your bike’s sound system. Its sleek-looking chrome design would look great on your motorcycle, and the installation is straightforward. Bluetooth connection gives it the standard streaming capabilities, and it has an aux port to plug your phone directly into the speaker.
You won’t hear it as well at high speeds, but with its decent sound quality and basic features, it’s a perfect choice for those just looking for something simple.
