Stock speaker lids - RF did it again!!

Hey all,

I have been lucky enough to test out the new saddlebag lid kits from Rockford, and I am a happy camper! I can turn off the fronts (acc switch added) and hear the backs just fine at any speed.

You do not need to buy new lids! You do not need to paint to match your stock or custom paint job!

You use your STOCK lids and very easily cut in your speaker pods...

The kit comes with a template for cut out, wiring harness, TMS69 (6x9 speakers to match their TMS65) and grills.

It's not the destination, it's the journey. Ride Hard, ride safe!

I would absolutely love to see some pictures of this install. If you can't post then because of Photobucket's change, would you mind emailing them?

I have added lower fairings with speakers on my bike. I am having trouble shaking the idea of more speakers in the saddlebags. Don't really want to lose the space, but it is so tempting to have even more sound.

Thanks in advance.

I will take some pics over the weekend. You don't lose much space at all, but the magnets do warm up...

I think lowers will be next step.

while I'm very excited about this as I'm a total fanboi of the Fosgate stuff and run/ran it all multiple times. I think it should be stated that you are an employee of Fosgate.

Like I said, all for this and would very much like to see more, it's just hard to accept that this isn't an unbiased opinion. I wish Fosgate would have chosen someone outside of the company to test these.

I do like what I've seen so far, I'm actually planning on running the Fosgate stuff on my new bike this winter.

I'd really like to ride someone's scoot that has bag speakers and hear for myself just how much they're worth at 80mph. hell, tell Fosgate to send me a set and I'll sacrifice my lids and give an unbiased review of the set up. I've got a diamond audio 2V2 I can spare to power them.

Hi Bunker,

I am an employee of RF, and did not mean to seem misleading. I may have jumped the gun on being the first to post on this new product on here as well as the HD forum. I am sure they have other testers as well, as choice of music genre, range of average speed, etc. all play a factor in opinions.

Thank you for the feedback and advise, I will make an effort to be more forthcoming on any threads I comment in or create.
