Hawg Wired ring adapters and Hertz hxc165 - not fitting?

hey everyone, was installing hertz hcx165 speakers on my '12 fltrx using the hawg wired ring adapters. when i go to put my fairing back on the speakers are sticking out too far and not allowing the fairing to fit on. i've taken the fairing on and off a million times so know how it's supposed to fit. definitely seems like a fitment issue

anyone else had this issue? if so, what rings are you using for the hertz hcx165?

i saw people mention hard ride audio but they don't seem to exist anymore. i think arc rings might fit these speakers as well as v-twin audio rings.

help!

I had the same issue with Polk speakers and arc audio adapters... try rotating the mounts to push the speakers towards the gauges.... It's only 1/4" difference but it was enough for me...

hey man, yeah i looked through your build thread to see if there was a trick to it. not sure why it isn't fitting right. i've looked at it a few times and the speaker magnets are out to far. wondering if the hawg wired bracket it different or something. really becoming a head scratcher. i might run down to street noyz to see if they have any other adapter rings to see if something else works

sorry if this is a dumb question, but what do you mean by roaring? sanding?

also which mounts? the ones on the adapters?

I think he meant to rotate them 180 degrees, there may be an offset in the mount that you didn't see.

Sorry..... Damn Swype..... I meant Rotating..... Mine used 3 screws so I turned the mounts so that the speaker sat closer to the gauges and not up toward the fairing...... It was only 1/4" difference but it was enough not to hit the fairing...

right on man. the hawg wired you can only line up certain ways. i pulled them and tried them in every configuration and they still aren't fitting. either i am missing something right in front of me or this setup isn't going to work. i'm going to try some other rings out today and see if that helps.

My arc audio adapters did hit the post on the factory speaker mounts... I ended up using a bench grinder and ground the post off then cut the screws so they wouldn't go through the inner fairing.... I figured i wasn't going to go back to 5.25" speakers so the bench grinder won the battle.......

i ended up getting it to fit on there but man it is tight! i used to have JM rokkers so still have the foam underlayment on the fairing. hopefully that will save the fairing from rubbing against the speaker magnet. in order to get it lined up i loosened the inner fairing bolts and just had to really move things around. first side went on ok, second side fought me tooth and nail for a bit but then finally clicked into place.

i plan to pull it again in 2-3 weeks to make sure i don't have any issues with rubbing or cracking. definitely makes me a little nervous with how tight it fit but everything seems to be ok for now.

if anyone else installed 6.5's did you end up with a tight fit?
