When the Polaris Slingshot was first released on July 27th 2014, a lot of us weren’t really sure what to make of it. Enthusiasts weren’t sure whether to characterize the three-wheeled roadster as a motorcycle, tricycle, or car. Thankfully, almost a whole decade after, the Polaris Slingshot has solidified it’s place in the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere and now we all just want it to get LOUD!

For years, Slingshot Audio wasn’t optimized for the space or open-air design the vehicle is praised for. It’s compact design led a lot of enthusiasts to place speakers where they could, rather than where they fit. The lack of an enclosed cabin affects sound quality, as audio waves dissipate into the open air, calling for speakers with specialized design for outdoor acoustics. Road noise and wind can compete with speaker output, requiring speakers with high power handling and clarity. Despite these challenges, DS18 offers a promising solution.

DS18’s SLG Series was born from the desire of Slingshot owners worldwide to get LOUD! The innovative SLG Series comes from our experts deep understanding that the conventional Slingshot audio configuration simply couldn't meet the refined expectations of genuine audio enthusiasts. This realization fueled our determination to create an audio solution that seamlessly combines visual finesse, precision engineering, and state-of-the-art technology. The SLG Series was created not just as an upgrade, but as a transformation engineered to deliver an unrivaled and immersive sound experience. Our team set out to create something that would seamlessly blend aesthetics, engineering, and cutting-edge technology to achieve an unparalleled audio experience in the Slingshot.
