Boom stage 2

Hey guys please excuse if this is just the norm but I just purchased my first 15 HD RGS and upgraded the speakers to the stage 2 and bigger amp from the dealership. just to preface I also upgraded to a stage 1 headers and exhaust with breather....so at highway speeds I usually can barely hear the speakers does that have to do with the speed volume or needing a better windshield, needing more speakers and amps ....all of the above?

2015 FLTRXS / Carlini Apes w/blk braided lines / VH X pipe & header & 450 dual pipes / Stage 1 kit / Stage 2 audio / LED brake and turn signals /Sun Downer seat and sissy bar w/ quick detatch / Paddle Floor boards /

I just put the boom audio speakers and amp on mine too and the dealer said that the auto volume control doesn't work with the amp so they disconnected it.
I did faring, lowers and tour pack. still didn't hear it too well at 80 mph with my 10" wind vest so I just ordered a 16". hoping that does the trick.
Dealer screwed up my faring doing the install so now they are patching and painting it now too.

You guys can use an interface unit , such as a magic box ...http://www.cyclesounds.com/dsp-line-...ox-harley.html
then go with aftermarket equipment, which is superior to the Boom junk.

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 just upgraded to the HD 300w amp and the boom stage 2 speakers. Works great at all speeds. Now sounds louder and clearer at 3/4 volume than when run on full volume before.

I also have the boom 2, with saddle bag speakers. I have screaming eagle pipes and at HWY speeds sounds great, my speed sensitive volume also works great.

The firmware flashes only apply to the '14 and up bikes. You don't have to worry about that stuff on '13 and older - go aftermarket amp and speakers and you'll be very happy. Can even sell your stock head unit and make enough to easily cover most of the cost of a top of the line aftermarket head unit and adapter to keep handlebar controls. Opinions on aftermarket audio are about as varied as those on "what's the best oil". I won't waste your time with my opinion, but would suggest you go check the classified section of this and other forums. Whatever brand you see the most of for sale - stay away from it - it's for sale for a good reason.

Freedom isn't free, remember to thank a vet.
2018 CVO RG lava orange, 117 Stage 3, 14" F47 and a few chrome extras. Boom crap gone.
2016 RG Special Cosmic Blue, 120ST with Dragos 2:1 and TTS tuner, FBI drop seat kit and JNR air ride. Stock audio long gone.
