2015 RGS Amp install Help...

I have seen the fairing removal covered many times... and I know the amp is supposed to install under the head unit....and where are the speaker connections on the back of the head unit?

Also, How do you access that space under the head unit? Do I have to remove the headlight? Seems like I could unplug the head unit and unbolt it from the fairing while i do the install... but the clip for the head unit seems kind of weak and I don't want break it. please help me with a little advice. I am going to mount a Power Acoustik 1200D along with Digital Designs 6.5 CSX Series front speakers.

I took my radio out (4 bolts holding it down)

the clip you have pictured unlocks the connection and it just pulls out after you slide the clip to the right on that arc

I also removed the headlight, it just makes things easy (4 bolts)

you'll access the speaker wire through the connection on the stock harness either with some connectors or cut and splice. I suggest the Biketronic Line Levelers with the Rushmore head units, gives you low level outputs but also more importantly, cleans up the output signal.

let me know if your still having problems, I have my fairing off right now and can snap some pics if you can't figure it out.

Thanks.. I didnt want to risk breaking the clip. it didnt seem to want to come off easily.
I will have to figure out how that slide functions so I can remove the head unit. Ill leave the headlight on if possible.

I have the biketronics 355 unit already. if you could snap a few pics of the harness that it connects to that would help.

Just did an amp install this past weekend. Took the head unit and headlight out, its all just as simple to put back together as it is to take apart. And taking the headlight out will give you alot more room to work with. I went with a Rockford Fosgate 2 channel Punch amp. I ended up having to run a remote wire from the cigarette lighter positive wire. Mounted the amp right to the bottom of the head unit bracket. You can drill some holes and bolt it down, buy a mounting plate, zip tie it or velcro it. Whatever you prefer and are comfortable with. The wiring goes from the head unit to the amp. Then from the amp to the speakers. If youre using a line leveler its different. I didnt use one so I cant help you there. I ran my ground back to the negative terminal on the battery as well. Others have went other places, again, its up to you and what youre comfortable with.
