Taking the music with you in your UTV has never been easier
If you’re the sort who likes to kick out the jams every time you go ride, but you’re tired of having your nice Bluetooth speaker get knocked around on the trail, it’s about time you treated yourself to a good set of UTV speakers.
While you could, in theory, mount any old set of car speakers inside your UTV and send it, those car speakers aren’t going to last very long in that sort of an environment. The right speakers for the job are vibration-resistant to cope with the constant harsh jolts and vibrations of off-road riding, and they’re weatherproof so they can withstand the elements. As an added plus, proper UTV speakers typically come preinstalled in rugged enclosures with clamps to mount them anywhere you like on your side-by-side’s cage, making installation a breeze.
Of course, some speakers are better-sounding, more weatherproof, and more resistant to knocks and bumps than others. That’s why we’ve cooked up this list of the best UTV speakers currently available on the market today, so you can stop raging against your machine and start loving the ride again.

Rockford Fosgate Prime RM1652B 150W Speakers
You can in fact get high-quality Rockford Fosgate audio in your UTV, in the form of these Rockford Fosgate Prime marine speakers. Balancing weather-resistance with faithful sound reproduction is never an easy task, but Rockford Fosgate has done it with an injection-molded, mineral-filled polypropylene cone with UV inhibitors, a UV- and salt/fog-resistant santoprene surround, and a moisture-, tear-, and fatigue-resistant Aramid fiber material. These UTV speakers “take extreme measures to ensure optimum performance,” whatever nature decides to throw at them, with one of the broadest frequency-response ranges available: 30 Hz to 30 kHz. Just pair with the right amp and a set of enclosures.
MCM Custom Audio 8” Marine Wakeboard Two-Way Speakers
These 8” marine speakers from MCM Custom Audio may be inexpensive, but that doesn’t mean they’re basic. On the contrary, they’re the perfect UTV speakers for shoppers on a budget, with premium features like titanium tweeter domes and heavy-duty ABS housings, at a price that won’t break the bank. Just pair with a good weather-resistant amplifier and you’re good to go.
Rockville Marine Wakeboard Tower Speakers
Another outstanding budget option, these Rockville Tower Quad speakers are fully marinized to protect against both fresh water and salt water, with 6.5” and 8” models available, rated at 500 or 600 Watts total, respectively. Both are available in your choice of black or white, with or without swivel mounts, making this a pair of UTV speakers you can really have your own way. And with poly injected cones with santoprene surrounds, and built-in polymide dome midrange tweeters, the sound is excellent for the money.
Kicker KM8 LED Tower Speakers
One of the most revered brands in automotive audio, these Kicker marine and UTV speakers are waterproof and ready to rock, with included aircraft-grade aluminum housings and mounting clamps from Rockville. The speakers measure 8 inches across, and can handle up to 600 Watts total at peak, providing plenty of overhead for most UTV-friendly amplifiers. Just as important, they meet or exceed ASTM standards relating to UV and salt/fog exposure, meaning they’re more than up to the task of blasting your tunes while you blast through the trails. Add to that Kicker’s legendary reputation for high-fidelity audio and you’ve got a winning combination on your hands.
NOAM NUTV5-S Marine Stereo System
By far the most expensive option on our list is the NOAM NUTV5-S, but you’re actually getting a lot for your money. This isn’t just a pair of unpowered UTV speakers, where you’re left to select an amplifier and see if it works okay; it’s a full stereo system, with an included amplifier and “the very first roll cage-mounted subwoofer.” We can’t verify the truth of that claim. What we can tell you is that a roll cage-mounted sub is a huge selling point, promising deeper, fuller bass tones than any pair of tower speakers can manage. At 5.25 inches in diameter, the included tower speakers are also smaller and more discreet, giving you more mounting options, and with the included NOAM amplifier, they deliver the quality of a much larger speaker.
BOSS Audio BPS4BSK Amplifier and Speaker Package
Once a bit player in the aftermarket audio realm, BOSS has made a reputation for itself as one of the premier sources of quality affordable audio equipment. One of the best values in UTV speakers and audio systems is the BOSS BPS4BSK amplifier and speaker package. It comes with everything you need for a UTV sound system, including a 125-Watt amplifier, Bluetooth connectivity, and four 6.5-inch speakers. This system even lets you charge your USB devices while they play. There are certainly better systems out there, but you’d be hard pressed to find one at this price point from a trusted brand.
Kenimoto 6.5” Speaker Cage Swivel Pods
These Kenimoto speaker cage swivel pods are not speakers. What they are is arguably even better: mountable enclosures ready to accept whatever 6.5-inch speakers you choose to put in them. A pair of these will greatly expand your options when it comes to selecting the right UTV speakers for your ride.
Pioneer TS-MR1640 2-Way Marine Speakers
Another globally recognized brand in aftermarket audio, Pioneer manufactures these excellent weather-resistant marine speakers, with gold tinsel wire and gold-plated terminals for superior current transfer. More impressive still, each speaker features Pioneer’s popular injection-molded polypylene cone, which manages faithful sound reproduction with exceptional mid-bass response and resists salt water, humidity, and even extreme heat. Higher frequencies are managed by a pair of advanced 1-1/8-inch dome tweeters with magnetic, giving you premium audio in a rugged package that’s ready for the trails. Just pair an amplifier and a good set of speaker enclosures (see above).
