Speakers in the Inner Fairing

This mod has taken 4/ever to get rite but I think I've finally GOT IT!

I've went thru 3 different sets of speaker grills, and still aint 100% sure of how to mount the speakers, w/o the grills rubbing on the Triple Tree Hseing.

So I'm at the point of cuttin the holes this wkd. and we'll c if the speaker will b mounted totally on the inside of the inner fairing or, mounting the speaker w/the lip of the speaker mounted on the outside of the inner fairing. I've taken a couple pics, just to show ya how "Tight" this is.

Direction,...meaning the way its kinda "Hidden?"
All I can say is I heard Yaffe's Super Stereo Kit w/Saddlebag Lids last wkd. Sounded pretty good to me, but when I'm done I'll b pushin more watts than he has and will b using the Hawg-Wired 6.5" speakers in the stock holes and the "Power" Rockford Fosgates in the holes that are about to b cut. Along w/a 400 watt 4-channel amp. Yaffe's only got a 300 watt 4-channel amp. He uses Rockford Fosgate "Punch" speakers.

I'm pretty sure mine will sound better, but gotta get sum time to do what I gotta do this wkd.,cause my Painter has called and said hes ready!

Hey Neano;
Are you using the 6.5" speaker adapter rings that are normally used in the fairing for this mod? I thought I read somewhere that if you do, the speakers will sit lower and give you more clearance between the grill and the Triple Tree Housing. BTW, I am still waiting on my painter to finish painting my stretched tank and one off dash panel. All of my Shark Nosed parts are done!! Jimmy

I've not heard of any adapter rings? U got a pic?
there aint "No Way" your gonna fit an adapter ring, like is used in the stock hole where these speakers go. Unless I'm totally "Blind" of a mod that I dont know of. Call me man. U still got my #?
