I'm looking to add some type of speaker set up to the ATV for the summertime, I've been using a Bluetooth speaker that's almost loud enough to hear clearly.

I'm not looking to take up my whole front rack with a giant speaker, and had considered getting a motorcycle speaker to attach to the handlebars.

I've been looking at the JBL boombox, which is around $300 us. But I would rather spend much less and still have volume.

The JBL sounds really good but I'm like you. $300? I have a little $12 bluetooth speaker that I bought a few years ago and I stuck it inside a big orange road cone one time and the sound quality jumped so much. It was louder and a lot more bass. Here's some DIY ATV speaker tube videos. I bet this might work.

Have you considered some wireless earbuds? I bought a set of Taotronics off Amazon a few years ago and they worked well until i lost them. At about 30 bucks, not a big loss and I will probably be getting something similar to replace them soon.

I accually bought a pair of wireless earbuds back a year or so ago. And i love them when im cruising by myself. But when my friends and I ride its nice to not be taking them in and out lots of times daily...i do love the idea though. Thanks for the response😁

Sena bluetooth motorcycle communication and music devices. I have an old Sena SMH5 and the things are pretty cool. Speakers mount inside your helmet and has a separate mic that gets mounted as well. Link it to family or friends and you can listen to music and then press a button for comms. Very, very nice to be able to do this.

Just a warning... Take it or leave it, it's your money.

Could be junk, won’t be the first time.. It’s really no big deal for me, I appreciate your input. No intentions of offending, just blazing the trail I guess... Cheers.. Ron

Yeah hopefully they actually work out for you I just hate seeing people waste money when they don't have to. I've got so much old unused stereo equipment kicking around from past vehicles it all works I just hate to throw it out but it's no comparison to the newer stuff. I'm thinking about possibly building a small system for the bike. It won't be waterproof at all as none of it is Marine equipment but at least it'll get some use

I always buy things so that I can return them if they don't work out. I try a lot of new stuff and usually come out ok. Everything costs something in the end, but for me it's just the cost of doing business...
