Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria has been offering motorcycle audio solutions since the category began. We are passionate about adding great-sounding music to your vehicle, whether it is a bike, automobile, boat or RV.
You already know how much fun it is to take time and go for a ride. For most of us, it is not the destination as much as the journey. What better way to make the journey more fun than with some of your favorite music played on a stereo system that you can hear at speed?
Motorcycle Audio Experts
Right from the start, the biggest difference between us and the competition is we are audio experts. Our team is made up of people who are passionate about delivering great-sounding music to our clients. A motorcycle presents a unique set of challenges that we understand, so the end result with our shop is a better-sounding, louder system that will be reliable for years to come. We don’t build engines and we surely don’t offer custom paint jobs. We do audio. Period.
Better Products Equal Better Sound
One of the luxuries of doing business with Ralph’s Radio is our long-standing reputation with the best brands in the business. Since we have been in business since 1949, we have developed great relationships with brands like Audison, Focal and Rockford Fosgate – some of the finest products on the market. When you start with better equipment, you get better results.
Another benefit of dealing with Ralph’s is our expertly trained installation and fabrication department. Being a vertically integrated company means our team has everything at their disposal to design and build anything needed for your bike. Whether it is metal, composites or fiberglass, we work with it. When it comes to our wiring, our reputation in the marine industry has made us legendary for long-lasting work. We solder all our connections with protective heat shrink and neatly loom and securely fasten everything for easy serviceability in the future.
Upgraded Speakers are Where It Starts
If you could look at a factory-installed motorcycle speaker and compare it to one of our upgraded models, anyone could see why the sound is lousy on your current bike. Speakers make the single biggest sound improvement, but bike manufacturers spend very little resources in this area. Whether you want to upgrade existing speakers or add more locations, we have you covered.
Amplifiers Bring the Music to Life
When you are riding up the road, it takes power to hear your music over the road noise, and power comes from an amplifier. Our team has found the best-sounding, most-compact amplifiers on the market today that will work with the limited capacity of your charging system. From basic upgrades to over-the-top concerts on wheels, we have the models in stock to make it happen.
In more recent years, some of our vendors have developed plug-and-play solutions for Harley-Davidson touring bikes. We have several solutions that include speakers, an amplifier and dedicated wiring, as well as a custom mount for the amplifier.
Radar and Laser Detectors
If you ride your bike the way it was meant to be ridden, a custom-installed laser and radar detector should be on your short list to purchase from us. Our team can integrate a seamless solution that will alert you to the presence of radar- and laser-based speed traps, helping to save you significant costs and time over the long run. These systems become completely integrated into the bike and are not a portable system that just gets tacked on somewhere.
