The Best Golf Cart Speakers Buyers Guide
This section unpacks everything you must consider when purchasing your golf cart speaker system. Let’s take a deep dive into what you need to look for in a prospective model.
What Do you Want from a Golf Cart Speaker System?
What kind of performance do you want from your golf cart speaker system? Are you a senior looking for something to play the radio while you motor around the course? Or are you a young adventurer looking for a powerful speaker system that takes the party with you wherever you go?
You have options for amplified speaker systems or for smaller portable models. Decide how you want to use the speakers and what models suit your lifestyle.
What Is Your Budget for a Golf Cart Speaker System?
Gold cart speaker systems vary widely in price. You can pick up some models for less than $100, while other costs several hundred. You need to decide on your budget for your golf cart speaker system. When preparing your budget, you’ll also need to include the costs of installing the speaker system.
Professional fitment of the speaker system can cost up to $200, depending on the work involved. If you want a custom fitment of specialized equipment, you could easily spend double that on the installation. Purchasing a speaker system and installing it yourself might save you money, but it may also void your warranty.
Portable or Fixed Golf Cart Speaker System?
So, should you get a portable or fixed speaker system for your golf cart? The fixed system is the most popular choice. It installs directly onto the cart, and you can’t remove it easily. Fixed speakers usually have higher outputs than portables, giving you more performance.
Fixed systems are also wired into your golf cart’s electrical system. So, the speakers never go flat. With portable speaker systems, you need to keep it charged or have a cable that connects to the electrical system in the cart, allowing for charging of the speaker on the go.
Portable speakers might not have as much power as the fixed models. However, you can remove them from the vehicle and take them wherever you go.
Do You Need a Subwoofer and Amp for Your Golf Cart Speaker System??
It dep4nds. If you’re not into loud music and don’t plan on entertaining, you can do without a separate amp and subwoofer in your speaker system. If all you do is listen to the radio in your golf cart, buying a bud speaker system with plenty of power is a waste of money.
However, if you’re into dance music or hip-hop fan, you’ll appreciate the added bass and performance of a subwoofer and amplifier in your speaker system. Amplifiers and independent subwoofers take up more room in the golf cart, so make sure you have available space before buying this equipment. Typically, amps and subs are only necessary if you want to turn your golf cart into a party vehicle.
Is the Golf Cart Speaker System Bluetooth Compatible?
Your golf cart speaker system should feature Bluetooth connectivity. Bluetooth allows for wireless connection to the speaker system, giving you full control over the speaker directly from your device. Bluetooth is constantly updating the technology, allowing you to connect to devices.
The current version of Bluetooth, version 5.0, allows for up to a 30-foot connection range from your device to the speaker system. This means you can keep your phone in your pocket without leaving it around for someone to steal or drop connectivity between the device and the speaker system.
Is the Speaker System Waterproof?
Your golf cart speaker system must come with a water-resistant rating. If it starts to rain while you’re out, you won’t want to short the speakers and ruin the system.
Most speakers come with an IPX5 or IPX6 water-resistant rating. While you can’t throw them in the pool they’ll survive a downpour without sustaining any damage.
Aux-In ad USB-C Compatibility
Your speaker system needs to connect to a device to entertain you. Most models come with three-way connectivity to any device. The aux-in connection allows you to connect a cable to any device, such as CD players or portable speakers.
The USB connection is also useful, with most models featuring a USB-C connection for universal compatibility with various devices. USB-C connections are also useful for improving charging times for your devices. If you get a portable speaker system for your golf cart, ensure it comes with USB-C compatibility for convenience.
