Here is the history;
1) pulled the bitchin' AM/FM cassette, blown factory speakers, & cinder block sized 10 disc changer out of my '01 SERG.
2) replaced with a JVC cd head unit, BikeTronics adapter & mount, Kicker PX100.2 amp, and Kicker PS5250i speakers (amp & speakers were free before you poo-poo).
3) saved up $$ and replaced Kicker amp with RF PBR300x2 and the Kicker speakers with Polk MM651's in adapters.
Sound is good, but like most, I want more. Did some research and it appears that the thing to do is utilize what I have sitting on a shelf (also, the warden
has put a freeze
). I've exhausted every avenue in searching out speaker pods for my lowers. I only have one glove box (pervious owner found at a swap meet - who sells/buys just one???) and cannot locate a mate for it and the speaker pods do not fit my year. Also, I like the ability to take them off for the summer. So with that being strike three, speakers in the lowers are out!
So, I think that this weekend I will cut two gaping holes in my inner fairing and attempt to mount the Kickers facing the forks. I'm on the fence about just using the rear outs on the JVC or installing the amp to drive them. I am seeking opinions from those that have dared to give me any pointers and insights. Should I use the amp? It is almost twice as large as the RF, so I am wondering about where to mount it. I'm sure that with enough industrial Velcro, gorilla tape, silicone, and bathroom caulk I should be able to get-er-done (maybe if I eliminate the headlights
Plan is to cut the holes and mount the speakers tonight. I will photo document my progress like I was following the mating rituals of penguins for NatGeo. Then, wire it up and finish for a shake down run this weekend.
So, any and all input welcome before I fire up the sawzall!!
