Digital Sound Processor Options
DSPs are becoming more popular and known in the bike and UTV application. Hertz and Arc Audio were the first ones to come out with DSP units specifically for motorcycles. The fexibility a DSP gives us for tuning dramatically improves the sound and sort of gives it more of a surround sound experience for the rider.
It needs to be Weather Proof
It is extremely important for the amplifier to be coated with a layer of weather proof coating. It's also important for the wiring and plugs to be water proof with rubber seals, more so in an UTV application.
It needs to be Compact and Small
The size of the amplifiers really plays a factory in this application as they need to be well hidden or fit under the fairing of motorcycles. Sound Digital and Cicada amplifiers excel in this category to provide plenty of power in a relatively small chassis.
