CVO Speakers in fairing lowers (AND PICS!)

Alrighty then! I have finshed my big winter mod. I put on the vented lowers and put the CVO speakers in them. The speakers are 6.5's. Now I do relaize that there are better speakers out there, but I chose these speakers for a reason. One reason is...what the hey, why not. The larger reason was the style plug in for the speakers....seem to be pretty water sealed. That is important for me, because I do get wet while riding, and didn't want any issues. As for the speakers themselves, I have this review....They sound sweet. I have a Bazooka 4 channel 200w RMS amp pushing 5.25's upstairs, the Hogtunes Tweeter Pod, and now the 6.5's in the lowers. I did a road test down the Interstate at 90+ and only needed half volume to clearly hear an acoustic song on the iPod. So without further waiting.....here are the pics:

Special thanks to Chainsaw for his info on the John Deere Blitz black. The fairing lowers and the speakers boxes were painted with a rattlecan!

Looks cool man!! Great job, and I bet it sounds kick ass.

Aren't the Harley speakers marked as being 1 ohm speakers? Is that amp stable at 1 ohm or will you risk burning it up?

Just asking because I have been reading every thread on every forum about the speakers in the lowers and I think I am more confused than ever!

The Bazooka Amp is 2 OHM stable and is compatible with 2 and/or 4 OHM speakers.

So it won't be good with 1 ohm speakers, right?

I'll have to pull them out to double check, but everything else from Harley is 2 ohm, so I wouldn't think that they would mix ohm loads.
