Hoppe Announces Audio Mini

Hoppe Announces Audio Mini

TROUP—Powersports accessory manufacturer Hoppe Industries has announced the expansion of its off-road product offerings with the launch of the Hoppe Audio Mini: a visor-style stereo bar with easy installation for select UTVs.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in our company lately with our Audio Shade line,” said Hoppe’s J.D. Vey. “A lot of people asked about some lower-cost options. Some wanted to keep their existing roofs but wanted that Kicker® sound and Hoppe build quality. That’s why we’re pleased to announce the Hoppe Audio Mini to meet that customer demand.”

Like the company’s Audio Shade product line, the new Hoppe Audio Mini features a suite of Kicker® audio components. The unit houses four Kicker® six-inch KM-series speakers along with the Kicker® KMC2 head unit. Users have access to AM/FM stations of their choice, as well as access to their own audio via Bluetooth® connectivity. The Audio Mini also features an interior surface-mounted LED dome light, rigid build quality to optimize sound performance, and Hoppe liner coating for all-weather protection.

The Audio Mini was designed for both experienced and entry-level audiophiles alike. “From the bolt-in application to the model-specific connectors of the wiring harnesses, it is truly plug-and-play,” said Vey. Lastly, the sound bar’s installation does not interfere with UTV enclosures, so users can enjoy the Audio Mini alongside their windshields, wind screens, and rear windows.

The Hoppe Audio Mini is currently available for purchase for the Can-Am® Defender and Polaris® Ranger UTV lines, with fitment information below. The company plans to expand its Audio Mini line for compatibility with other popular UTVs in the market, along with continued development of its Audio Shade line. Release news will be published on Hoppe’s website and across social media so customers should follow online to get the latest from the company.

The Hoppe Audio Mini for Can-Am® Defender and Polaris® Ranger models is now available for purchase starting at $800 through Hoppe online, Authorized Motor Trike Dealers, and Parts Unlimited Dealers.
