1999 Road Glide Sound Upgrade (on a budget!)

Squeaking by on my tight budget....I found HogTunes 70 watt amp with 5 x 7" speakers, adapter and grills half price from J & P cycles (it was a scratch and dent unit, looks fine to me!)....looking for a deck unit and retro kit...almost bought a Sony DSX-MS60 but I own a iPhone5 and not sure if it will work with that....

Any suggestions on a deck unit...either flash drive or iPhone5 compatible? Don't own an iPod....

Any comments/suggestions are welcome.....found the DSX-MS60 for $136 including s/h new on eBay.

Same bike for me and I had not planned to spend big bucks because of the age of the bike. I went with the sony DSX-M60 and am very happy with it.Worlds better than the stock unit. I have a Walkman instead of iPhone and am happy with that as well so I can't speak as to the iPhone5 compatibility issue.Highly recommend you go with the Hawgwired retrokit and harness as the fit and finish are spot on. The sidecar splash guard is supposed to fit their retrokit also. While doing this upgrade I went ahead and added the Hawgwired 2 channel amp and the DX504-70 spkrs. Am very happy with the end result,but have not had it out for a road test yet. But even in the garage I can tell that it is much cleared and louder. Hope this helps.

I'm leaning towards the HawgWired retrokit for mounting hardware and wiring harness to maintain my handlebar controls....hope to have the money for that in a week and install ASAP!

I currently have no sounds since my cassette player eats tapes and no radio reception where I'm at......looking forward to spring weather and listening to some of my favorite tunes while riding again.

if you have an audio out, I've use a cheap mp3 player or gps with mp3 and J&M speakers.

I highly recommend the HW install kit. I just installed a Clarion head unit in my '01, HW kit allows handlebar controls for volume, source selection, track selection. I found an inexpensive mini flash drive at Staples that doesn't stick out much, downside is that it plays all tracks in order, not able to shuffle.

Fit and ease of install on HW kit are very good.

Peace

I've gone online at HawgWired and J&P even Amazon and eBay and the HawgWired HUA470 kit I wanted is not available anywhere?....backordered out of stock.....!

Anyone suggest a good second choice? Biketronics?

Or another place to buy the HW kit?

I got mine from a local car stereo guy, I can call him if you want or you can find Audio 2 Go on Facebook.

Sidecar Cycles may have them, they make and sell each others products.

If your on a tight budget I recomend the PAC-SWI for hand controls. I've just installed it on my RG with a Sony DSX-s200 radio. Works flawless, instructions are very simple. You do have to do some splicing and wire welding. If you've done any kind of radio install before, this is easy.
