You can find ATVs and UTVs just about anywhere these days. Farmers use side-by-sides to survey the back forty, hunters use them to reach remote duck blinds, auto racers use them to pull (drag racing) or push (sprint car racing) their cars at the track, etc., etc..
Now that these versatile vehicles are bigger, more powerful, and more popular than ever, many owners are looking for ways to add fun and functionality to their vehicles. If you're thinking about improving your ATV or UTV, there's no shortage of cool accessories out there – especially if you're into audio.

ATV and UTV audio ranges from mild to wild. You can add a marine-rated receiver and a couple of speakers, or go all out with a multi-speaker system that also sports amps and a subwoofer. You can build your own system or, if you have one of the more popular side-by-side models from Polaris or Yamaha, install a system that's custom-designed to fit right in with minimal hassle.
You can also add sound bar speakers, LED lighting, and combo units that give you both light and sound. It all depends on how you use your off-roader and how you want to hear your music.
Custom kits like this one from Rockford Fosgate are designed to fit popular side-by-sides form Can-Am, Polaris, and Yamaha
ATV/UTV stereos and audio systems
The hottest new concept in ATV/UTV stereo is the custom-designed stereo system kit. The first cool thing about these systems is that they're designed specifically for popular side-by-sides from Can-Am, Polaris, and Yamaha. The second cool thing is that they're available in stages, so whether you want to build your system gradually or go all-in with the "everything" system, there's a kit for you.
These ATV audio systems start with a basic "receiver and speakers" package and go all the way up to amazingly powerful systems with multiple speakers, amps, and a subwoofer. If you want to start with something basic and work your way up to something deluxe, almost all of the components are available separately, so you can build a system at your own pace.
ATV soundbars are easy to install and tough enough for life in the outdoors
ATV/UTV soundbars add sound and light
If you like to travel light, but you still enjoy heavy-duty sound, consider a soundbar for your ATV or UTV. Whether you mount yours on your handlebars or rollbars, you'll get outstanding performance and rugged reliability. These ATV speaker systems are made for outdoor use, and most of them have built-in Bluetooth® connectivity, so you can tuck your phone or device safely into your pocket and crank some tunes while you carve up a trail. Choose a soundbar with LED lighting for a better ride at night or to brighten up your camp- or work-site.
A compact, powerful amp will really bring out the best in your ATV audio system
ATV/UTV speakers and audio components
If you want to build your system your way, or if you want simply to upgrade the audio gear that's in your side-by-side now, that's totally do-able, too. We carry an extensive line of outdoor-ready stereos, speakers, amplifiers, and subwoofers, plus dash kits, speaker pods, and wiring harnesses. Check out all of our ATV and UTV audio components.
Two-way radios really come in handy when you're deep in the woods
ATV/UTV GPS and radios
How far out there are you going to go? If the answer is "Very," you'll need some additional gear. That's where off-road GPS and 2-way radios come into play.
If your UTV gets used for actual work, for example, a powerful, reliable walkie-talkie system is essential when you need to keep in touch with basecamp. They're also handy for hunting and fishing expeditions where "I'll text you!" probably isn't the best communications strategy.
When you're way out in the wilderness, it's good to know where you're going. A rugged outdoor navigator is made for this kind of adventure, with built-in maps and both 3D and topographic displays that will help you blaze the trail ahead more accurately. These weather-resistant GPS units are built for the outdoors, so they can take a pounding and still get you where you need to be.
This off-road ready audio gear can stand up to whatever you get into. Here's Butch, a 35-year veteran of Crutchfield’s Distribution Center, cranking some tunes while fording a river in his Polaris RZR.
