Is factory HK a 4 channel output?

I am interested in adding the inner fairing speakers to my setup. I know an amp would work best, but if I can't afford one now, can the factory hk go 4 channel?

A firmware update by the dealer and you are good to go~you will have "fade"

the radio will have 4 channel output, but may have to be flashed for the fader operation to work. some have added speakers and their fader was already activated.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

All four speakers are active from the factory. Just not pluged in.
The only thing the Dealer Activation does is enable the "Fader" control.
Go throught the Audio controls and look to see if "Fader" shows up on the display.
If it does, you don't need the Dealer activation, just the speaker wires pluged int he housing.

It is an '08 and NOT an Ultra. not sure about the custom part though.

Gary, I believe that you hold in the volume button on the left control.
That will bring you to the bass, treble, balance, volume settings.
I think the fade setting is in there also.
If it's not there its not activated.
Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks!

Ya that's what I thought. I don't have fade or balance. You would think everything should be activated regardless of having two or four speakers.
