I had the Hot tunes 6 speaker with pods system on my 2014 Limited for 3 years with no problems. Very loud and clear, never went past 75% volume because my ears would hurt over that. Everyone riding near me would turn their radios off and listen to mine since I drowned them out!

On this '18 RG however, I went with the heavy breather so I don't have the room for the pods and speakers. I haven't done the audio on it ($$) but plan on sticking with Hog Tunes again. May do the 2 channel Wild Boar system.

I had the hawg wired 6 pack plus 2 speakers in the inner fairing on my 2012 for 4 years. System cranked, never past 3/4 volume, never faded.


Decisions, decisions....

Good luck!!

On my 10 I have 3 Hawgwired amps in the fairing powering 10 speakers, sounds great. I have Hertz speakers because they sound better IMO, I've never owned anything Hogtunes besides the speaker grills on the 16 and 17.

2010 FLTRX With Plenty of extras, goes by the name "Hardeshia"

been using Hawg Wired since my 13RG and now in 15 RGS
they are lightweight / small but powerful, also nice adjustability
of gains and frequency in the back, to your liking depending on speakers choice
Im running the CS300 2CH amp with 4 speakers wired in series (2 J&M Rokker XX in fairing 2 Infinity Kappas 62.11i in lowers)
...works and sounds great! no complaints

Another vote for Hawg Wired.
You can't beat there amps or their stellar Customer Service.
If you go that route get a hold of Frank Drago.
He's a Hawg Wired Dealer and will give you a great price on a set up.
Hope this helps.
