So, Is the hidden fairing antenna worthless with an amplifier?
I have a new to me, 2012 RG Ultra. It came with stock head unit, stock speakers and the hidden fairing antenna. The sound sucks. So I have been researching to see what you guys recommend and thought I was going to keep the stock head unit and add an amp, lower fairing speakers and new upper fairing speakers. Than I came across a post that said the antenna would be useless with an amplifier. Is this the case? If so, I may have to re think my move. Was thinking with amp and 4 6.5" speakers I could get by around $600. I don't want to be relying on just CD's if the FM won't work.
Maybe for now, I should think about a new head unit and just 2 new upper fairing speakers? Then save up to add an amp and lowers?
Looking for any input you guys may have. Recommendations for Head unit if you think that would be the wise start. Maybe one to get me by until I can do the amp and lowers, without breaking the bank. Not really interested in satellite radio, but could do blue tooth and USB.
I am unsure what to do, don't want to half a** anything but not looking to win any sound competitions. Would be willing to do parts at a time as funds allow but need something so the wife can hear it also cruising the countryside for now (not worried about anything in the tour pack, it will rarely be on)
