Question Is there a Hawg-Wired solution for tour pak pods?

I'd love to put the RS/ZX system (Six Pack) in the fairing, but can't find a good solution for adding amplified tour pak pod speakers. I emailed Hawg-Wired customer support and they told me they do not offer a speaker/amp combo for tour pak pods.

Is there a reason for this? Are these truly ancillary speakers that will add no benefit while riding? J&M has Rokkers that fit there and run off their 4-channel amp.

Has anyone tried adding rears to the Six Pack system? I realize it'd be another amp as well. Just wondering if anyone has a good solution and products they recommend for this application.

Cheers,
G

They say these will fit but the specs don't look that impressive

Yeah, they're a stock speaker replacement but cannot handle an amp. So...basically minimal improvement. They told me to only put these in if my stock speakers were shot.

I did see someone that had an adapter for the rear pods but I would have to search again. I didn't go for it because it looked so ridicules and it would in the way of a passenger. (speakers stick way out of the pod)

Hogtunes rear speakers handle 50 watt RMS, 100 watt peak

Im sure there are other 5.25 speakers out there that can handle more power but the remaining questions are
1) weather resistant??
2) depth of the speaker??

Personally, when funds allow, I think Im going the Saddlebag speaker route instead.

just my .015

I just got 4 Polk Audio DXI651's...... two for the front and 2 for the pods... I test fit them in the pods and they do fit no problem.... they dont match up to the already drilled holes so I will need to get some self tapping screws to install them but they fit in the holes.

I hear ya. I just can't give up the saddlebag space. When the wife and I travel two up, we need all the room for storage. I'd like to keep it to the stock speaker locations. I'm also not keen on having the speakers stick out further than stock. I've seen custom tour pak pods that house larger speakers but haven't seen much in the way of reviews.

I'm not even sure I need the rear speakers with the Six Pack powerhouse in the fairing. What did you put in the fairing that you will add to later? Always curious to see what people think isn't "enough".

Thanks,
G

Hey Scootin...what are you driving them with? Or just stock replacements?

Talking Solved

Talked to the guys up at V-Twin Audio after referral from Hawg-Wired. They have an adapter for the rears to allow for the Hawg-Wired ZX speakers and also offer a vent kit to port the tour pak pods into the Tour Pak to improve bass response. Sounds like a good system. The quote I received had the following items to complete the system:

HWSixPack RS/ZX with power harness and adapter rings 699.95
VTTP6.5 Tour-pak 6.5" speaker adapters 89.95
VTTPV V-Twin Audio, Tour-pak vent kit 49.95
HWZX654.100 Hawg Wired 6.5" speaker (rear speakers) 199.95
HWRS400 Hawg-Wired 2x200watt amplifier (rear speakers) 399.95
VTRAM Road Glide amp mount, left/right (each) 29.95 x2 59.90
SHIPPING Shipping Charges 5.00 x7 35.00
Estimate: $1,534.65

I think I can get better pricing on some of the HW gear elsewhere, but this is the list they recommended for us Ultra riders.

Cheers,
G
