If you are a frequent rider of Polaris Ranger, you know the importance of having quality audio and audio accessories. Whether you want to enjoy your favorite tunes or listen to the radio during your adventure, you should consider a few factors before investing in Polaris Ranger audio systems. Here are some things to look out for when buying Polaris Ranger audio and audio accessories.
First, check the factory options of your Polaris Ranger model. Most models come without a stereo from the factory, but some special editions may have a built-in system. Double-check the special packages that came with your Polaris Ranger before investing in aftermarket Polaris Ranger stereo systems.
Secondly, make sure that the audio system you choose is compatible with your Polaris Ranger model and year. Some Polaris Ranger models may have specific mounting or wiring requirements that need to be taken into account. At Everything Polaris Ranger, we can take care of compatibility concerns, while you should ensure that your existing and future mods can accommodate the audio system you want.
Thirdly, consider the installation process. If you have experience and skill, you can install Polaris Ranger audio systems yourself. However, for more complex systems, it is recommended to seek professional assistance. Some radios may require wiring or mounting modifications to your Polaris Ranger, so it's important to ensure that you have the necessary tools and expertise to complete the installation safely and effectively.
Fourthly, since most Polaris Ranger models are driven in harsh outdoor environments, it's important to choose an audio system that is weather-resistant or waterproof. Look for systems that are designed to withstand exposure to rain, mud, dust, and other outdoor elements. Check for a specific IP rating and know the difference between a component being waterproof and water splash-resistant.
Fifthly, consider the power output and special features of the audio system. Some key features to look for include analog/digital equalizers, remote controls, RGB lights, sound modes, and stereo imaging. You should also consider the audio source options you need, such as Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, AUX inputs, built-in AM/FM radios, or CD players. Some systems will even enable you to link your streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, etc.
Lastly, consider your setup preferences. The number of options and speakers to choose from can be overwhelming. Some riders may be fine with a simple Polaris Ranger sound bar or sound pod, while others may need amplifiers, subwoofers, controllers, and a full-package aftermarket Polaris Ranger sound system.
In conclusion, when buying Polaris Ranger audio and audio accessories, ensure that you check the factory options of your Polaris Ranger model, compatibility, installation process, weatherproofing, power output, and features, audio source options, and your setup preferences. With these factors in mind, you'll be able to find the best Polaris Ranger audio system for your needs.
