I have a 16' CVORGU and I'm looking to install a set of Boom 1 speakers into my lowers. At first I had a couple of idiot dealerships tell me that I need to install saddlebag amp and then move forward with adding speakers. Well turns.out there is an under tourpak mount and I'd love to speak with someone who's done this already.

It's been a few years since I've done mine like that. May take me a bit to dig up the kit you need.

Here's the first part of the kit you'll need. It has the harness to get the signal to the amp and the brackets to mount it which are nothing more than a few pieces of bent and drilled stainless.

Now, with that being said, You'll notice the description says for Boom II rear speaker install kit which is what I did. It changes the stock 4 position speakers from the Stage 1 to the Stage 2 which means you now have 2 channels of 75 each at each of the 4 speaker locations which I'm sure you knew. I'm not sure if this uses the original rear speaker feed to send the rear signal to the amp and then comes back out of the amp to the rear speakers in 4 wires now (2 channels per side) or not. It's been too long since I did my upgrade.

It may be possible to get the kit for a saddlebag install and not have to worry about what I mentioned in the previous paragraph and just fab up a couple of mounts for the amp to go under the pack. Hell, they may be the same mounts that are used under the fairing for the amp that's there now.

You'll need the Boom 2 speakers for the lowers as you'll only be adding one set of speakers to a 4 channel amp.

Hope this is helpful and not totally confusing.


And if this is Agnell, Quit blowing up your damn M8 or just start bringing that CVO to SW.

It is me brother ! Lol. This cvo was supposed to be in SW but that's just another story for another bottle. I'm planning on staying with stage 1 due to the fact that's what the bike came with and if I change from there I will have no choice but to add an amp to the saddlebag for speakers to lowers since you can only run boom 1 or 2 but you can't mix. I don't think it's worth putting boom 2 speakers in the tourpak since that's just in the back.....unless you know otherwise ?

I wasn't aware that you couldn't mix them. Seems strange. An amp is an amp so to speak unless it is in how it's flashed by when my wrench did mine, He just turned on the 2nd amp if I recall. The only thing I can see where it is different is the S2 amp may be programmed to put certain frequencies to the mids and other to the tweeters which would explain why you can't mix the two because you can't program one amp one way and the 2nd amp the other way. Putting one under the TP VS in the bag should not make any difference unless it's in the wiring in which case you should be able to use the bag install kit and just Fab a few mounts. There would be more wire in the bag mount than the tp mount.

Hell with it, just get the second amp and add speakers in the lowers and the bag lids. Lol

I plan on taking the boom amp out of the 17' RGS and put the boom speakers into the lowers and at least all of that won't go to waste. Then I'll either do a Rockford sound system in there and I didn't loose that much money on it all.

Are you sure there's an amp in that bike? I knew they put the speakers in there but they can be run without an amp. I didn't think an RGS came with the amp.

Yes there is an amp in there since I put it there myself. You can't run Boom stage 1 or 2 speakers without an amp. I know you can listen to the Boom 1 and it won't sound any different from stock, but the Boom 2 I don't think you can even hook them up at all without the wiring harness.

Boom1 speakers will work without an amp. No better quality but a little more volume.

Correct about the B2. What happens there is the amp sends the 4 channels to two positions instead of 4. 2 channels per speaker so you now have 150 watts at each speaker each "speaker" on the B2 setup actually pulls 2 channels to it. One for the mid and one for the tweeter and the processing is done in the amp itself.

I picked up the 2nd amp and all 4 speakers a few years back slightly used for $400. Another$300 in harnesses including a $20 tip to my wrench for flashing it and I'm only $700 into the upgrade and have not had any problems with it at all. Sounds great to my old ears.
