2006 audio upgrade. Help an audionoob out!
Ok, so I am looking at upgrading my Audio set on the bike. It is totally stock except for a hawgtunes Bluetooth piece I put in last year. Which BTW, gave out on me right at the end or the riding season. It will not search for signal and I just let it go because I knew I was taking everything apart this winter.
So, also last year right at the end of the season. I had a speaker go out. Not blow, just stopped working. In talking with my service guy at HD, he thinks that is probably the radio. If so, this would be the SECOND unit I have put on my bike in 3 years. First one I lost all display, radio would work, just couldn't see display. Now, the display did fade out once or twice this year as well, but came right back on.
so now I am looking at doing some upgrading. My service guy is against getting a new head unit because he has yet to see something that isn't Harley last more than a year or two when wet. My response was his Harley unit hasn't fared any better. And for a refurbished Harley Radio it is $350. BUT, I really want to be able to keep the ability of using my radio controls on the bars.
So, I know my bike is ancient, and I am a COMPLETE moron when it comes to this stuff, I was the light guy and drum tech for the bands, whenever I had to run sound I just knew which fader to bring up for the guitar solo's. I have read many threads on here and you might as well have been speaking Mandarin Chinese.
This is what I am looking on adding from what I have picked up here.
Speakers: Infinity Kappa 62.11 150w 6.5inch 2 way
Amp: Cerwin Vega B52 Stealth Bomber Class D Amp b52 2 channels, 1,000W
That's about it. Now, After I pull the faring off I have to see why my speaker stopped working and the blue tooth. So if I need a new radio, do I need a conversion wire set so I can get the hand controls to work? And if I get something besides Harley, what would it be? I can pay the $350 for the new Harley radio, but I really think I could get something AT least as good if not better for that price.
Help a brother out. I cannot go without my tunes. My standard set up wasn't even that bad for me, I could hear it @70MPH, wasn't clear, but I could hear it.

C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.
