2015 amp install and purchase

Ok first off I have used the search for this question and have found the answers get very detailed and I get lost in all the info. I am just looking for a good amp for my 15 special. nothing crazy. I have already changed my speaker and notice pretty much no difference. The new ones I installed are supposed to be good for 150 watts.

I have checked with Harley and see they have a amp kit for 750.00 before install and I have also seen that J&M audio has a amp as well for 750 by the time i get it in my hands.

My question is this? is there a cheaper amp that will do the same that just plugs in or install with little work. I know a little about stereo install etc but i am by far from a pro. Just seems to me that there has to a cheaper option than 750 dollars.

Go with the Rockford fosgate PBR300x2 its a great amp. Buy the mounting bracket and wiring kit and you will spend around $200 or just a little bit more.

Check out Hawgwired or VTwin Audio also. And if you're on Facebook, go to Harley Bagger Stereo and check some of the information there, $750 is definitely too much for just an amp.

The Sound Stream Nano amps are decent amps also and class D. They run very cool & are very efficient. You'll also be at about 2 bills for everything.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I'm looking for info on installing a amp (in fairing) to the stock head unit of a 15 RGS that I can run 4 speakers. Also is there a special harness/jack needed to connect a amp to the headunit? Thx.
