I was just looking at a 2015 Road King CVO at the stealer and they had what looked like Doutch (spelling?!) connectors mounted behind the shock pocket on the bags. Then the wiring ran up under the rear frame cover to under the seat. I thought that was a pretty trick setup!
I have Hog Tunez lids and they came with instructions and wiring harness and grommet where you cut a hole in the bags in front of the shock moldings and slightly below and behind the saddlebag front mounting hole. Then run the wires up under the seat. But I need to take off my seat and unplug the speaker connectors to remove my bags. The Road King idea seems better as the Doutch connectors are waterproof and all that you would need to do is remove the bag pins and unplug the connector to remove the bags! Go to a dealer and hopefully there is a CVO with speakers in the bags so you can check out this setup. I'll bet the connectors are available from HD for a premium with the mounting plate needed for the bags but the connectors are available on eBay and I would make a mounting plate to save me some.
My 13 has room for all my amps in the fairing but this same setup could support saddlebag mounted amp(s) with the proper grommet and wire size.
