Stereo Setup Assistance

Fellas,

SO I bought my 2010 Road Glide and it was pretty customized. I have built up several bikes to this point, but this is the first one I bought with other peoples work on it. I am tearing apart the sound system and I am unsure what would be the best way to wire it all back up. Attached is a pic of the components, only thing missing is I am installing some DD Horns in the dash so those will need to be added to the diagram. I know its a long shot and I am a stereo newbie sorta. can anyone take a look at the diagram and offer up some advice whether is bad or good. Just looking for some good avice to get this most of the setup.

Thanks guys

I would think those horns will overpower your front stage. Also I'm not a fan of those amps, Rockford has some nice stuff but not those. If you want to run horns I would suggest some different speaks for the fairing (prob some PA's like MMats, or PRV's), drop the MM's in the lowers, and a better amp (depending on budget anything from a Soundstream TN4.900D, Arc Moto 600.4 etc.)

2007 SB Stage 1, PCV, 30/70 swap, fabbed fenders, w/ quick release bags fairing and tour pack, lots of powder, flake and marbled paint.
2008 Road Glide - Stage 1, added lowers and Tour Pak, and upgraded audio.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I looked up the Soundstream Amp. Would that be enough to power everything? I also looked up some PRVs. I am not opposed to replacing all the speakers, just looking for advice on what speakers could replace all six. When I said Lowers, I meant they are in the lower portion of the fairing. So I have Polks in the stock location then there is two more Polk installed in the inner part of the fairing firing towards the handlebars

Yes the SS amp or the Arc will be enough to power all 6. I would run the horns and the PA's on the front channels and the other 4 off the rear channels in parallel. There are other amps that would work, these just happen to be 2 I am familiar with.

Contact Alex from Bagger Audio Lab for a deal on a set of PA's and his advice on the setup. He has great advice and won't steer you wrong.
