Wow

Man, I've never seen this. I know I'm new, but the extra speakers on the inside of the fairing - too cool!

Keep the pics coming. I am interested in seeing where people are mounting there amps when running this 4 speaker set up. What kind of amp are you planning on using?

If your going to do something give it all you got, might be the last time you ever do it !!!

Lanzar Mini Amp MNX450 4 channel is what I have to put in if it fits LOL
Mock up it appears it will but when you go to close the top you find out..

Might have to redo the mount if it needs to come up some but we'll see

Now I have to decide if I want to run them in series or
hook up all 4 channels to the speakers...

I have been kicking around the idea of doing the same speaker set up with the Elf amp wired in series. Just wondering how much heat the amp will put out wired up like that.

speaker placement

Have you actually rode the bike yet with the new inner fairing speakers in place? I was Just wondering if the sound gets muffeled at all being soo close to the forks and down low ?

I was thinking about which way to go; using the lower fairings glove box for speaker placement or the inner fairing placement or I could run a six pack . lol

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

They sound great

I have them installed like hotrodking they work and sound great. The speakers in the back seat of your vehicle are alot farther away than these. Being down low doesnt really affect the sound I dont think but then again maybe if they were turned a different way they would sound better. IDK? It is loud enough for my bike with a 8 inch windvest and D&D with performance baffle. In the shop we cranked the stereo up as loud as it would go and cranked the bike up to 3000 rpms and I could still hear the music over the exhaust! Out on the road is no different 4 speakers is enough for me. For now
