Diamond Micro 2v2 Install ?

I have read this combo ,Diamond micro 2v2 amp ,arc audio moto 602 speakers is a good 2 fairing speaker upgrade, for 2016 FLTRXS. I have amp, speakers & BT Rushmore wiring kit ordered should be in next week. My question is do I need some kind of mounting kit for the amp ? And can I use the stock speaker grills or would I have to replace them ? I would greatly appreciate any info. Thanx

Zip ties are likely to do the job of securing the amp. My amp barely fit under the radio. It really didn't need to be secured. I hung it with zip ties anyway.

Thanx Bucket ! I could tie it down with wax lacing cord ! Zip ties dont have a long shelf life.

My zip tis have been going strong for over 2 years and show no sign of brittleness or wear.

Only reason I'm replaceing them is because I am going to retune the amp over the winter.

Also you can reuse the grilles.

disregard. Didn’t read that the question was about a 2016.

I used Velcro, as for grills, I wanted metal so I bought the Hog Tunes grills, look much better than stock IMO.

If the 2V2 is the same width as the 4V2 it fits like a glove between the radio bracket and headlight bracket tabs. So snug you donít even need zip ties and can make adjustments without removing the amp.

I would agree that the Hogtune grills in metal look better then the stock grills, unless you paint the speaker grills Vivid Black like I did on mine.

I get asked all the time were I purchased my grills by other Glide riders.

I have this same set up and have some install pics somewhere in this audio section if you want to take a look. it'll fit upside down below the radio at first I had it velcro'd and zip tied which worked fine. Grills will be fine but you will have to take the rubber surrounds off of the magnets.
