Memphis audio amp and Focals going in later this morning

Ok guys after lots of deliberation I decided on the Memphis Audio SA 2.100 Amplifier and the Focals 165 - AC speakers. Got my wire and adapter rings and will be pulling the fairing this morning and doing the install. Later will be adding another pair of the Focals in my lowers when I get the CVO speaker plates painted. Will take some step by step pics while doing the install. Even though I've done stereo work in vehicles for over 25 years professionally at one point, this should be a pretty straightforward process. Even someone with little background that can turn a screwdriver should be able to install this. Updates coming soon

Ok guys sorry for the delay but got finished up Sunday and just had to ride the bike. While I was in the fairing I went ahead and wired in a 2.1amp direct wire in USB port for my phone and wired it up for constant 12 volts so phone would charge while bike is turned off. Also did the DIY Headlight Halo project as well. I also moved my phone mount from the handlebar with a ram mount X grip to a Custom made bracket like the Iron Aces mount. Everything I used came from the local audio shop, autozone, and Home Depot. I went with the Memphis SA 2.100 for its capabilities of running 2 ohm stable for when I add the speakers in my lowers. I am running the Focals AC-165 which is the next step up from the CA model. All the wiring and adapters also came from the local shop and the owner beat every online price I could find.
The LEDs for the Halo's and the USB port and needed connectors came from Autozone along with some blue light bulbs for my gauges. They are not very bright so will be changing them to some LEDs also when I pull the fairing back off.
For the phone mount I used a piece of aluminum c channel from the metal project section at Home Depot. It is 1/2" X 3/4" along with some spacers to keep it from collapsing when I tightened the bolts with some 8-32 stainless bolts with nylon lockouts and used my Otter Box holster with the belt clip broke off. Phone mount was easy to fab ad long as you have the ability and basic tools. And fairly cheap too.
I will be pulling my fairing off again next week when we do my friends bike with the same setup and will be taking the crimp connectors off and soldiering all connections then as I was out of town and did not have access to my stuff at home. All in all it was a easy install and with everything I did only took around 4 hours.
Audio setup sounds pretty good but need to do some adjusting on the gain levels some more. Really Love the phone where it is mounted now better than before and also the charging port will come in handy with the higher output for when I'm running Pandora or any of the music programs at the same time I am running my map program which is a hog for battery power.
Oh and while I was at it I had my stock seat cut down with memory foam added and a custom cover made for it too.
Will be adding the pics I guess 2 at a time...LoL

Keep the tires on the pavement guys and safe riding

Are you happy with the audio? Have not heard of anyone using this amp. Curiuos as to the output and sound quality?

Thanks
