Upgrade Help

Hi Forum!!

I was hoping for some help, I have quickly learned that audio options and just as hard as handlebars because of the flood of information and huge product pool.

So what I have now is a 2012 Road Glide Custom, I have the Hog Tunes REV 70.2 set up in it now and the gauge mount tweeter pod. The speakers are 5x7s and i think the amp is 70 Watts per channel.

It was obviously a huge upgrade off stock but now 2 years later I have found that I need a better set up. So my question is am I better off going with a kit or piecing it together? I like the RF RF300x4-SS set up with Yaffie and putting the extra set on the inside of the faring tunnel and keeping my tweeter pod.

I also want to make sure that it is a water proof (as much as possible) because I get hung out in the rain fairly often.

I appreciate the feed back and hope I am not the 300th person to ask this same question

Enjoy the Ride!

there are many variables, the main thing is that the 70x2 amp is a little small in power, PBR300x2 is the least expensive replacement, then the hawg wired CS, and the hawg wired RS

it is like windshields and handlebars

I like the rockford 2 channel PBR300x2 because it has the "punch" feature or PEQ, it doesn't do much, but enables simple easy tone control on the fly, I have two, near the ACC, one sweetens treble, the other sweetens full range in the lids, or bass

since you have the 5.7 spacers, perhaps a set of HAT i57-2 speakers would fit. but $350 a pop, but component and handle piles of juice.

I know there is much more bass with the ovals v. the rounds.

re: inner fairing mount, I have that, but the speakers have to be matched somewhat to get the full effect, the sound output lever of the weakest speaker is duplicated when you pair speakers.

not sure about the tweeter pod breakout, have never wanted more treble, usually less.

Well I talked with Pete at SOund Customz and told me his systems are the greatest but also gave me some emails of guys in my area running similar systems.

But I was kind of thing about this set up-

Has anyone had any experience with the Hawg Wired DX 5x7" Components?

Since I already Have the adapters for the 5x7 I thought I would go with those, the DX 5.25" on the inner faring, and a PBR 300x4 for an amp.


Thoughts?

One thing I learned along time ago with audio and software. Best of bread (i.e. components from various manufacturers) will give you the best quality but is the hardest to install. A complete system is easier to install but you will not really get the best of each component. Some brands have great speakers but their amps suck and visa versa. IMHO.

Hawg Wired Rules as far as I'm concerned.
I have their 6 Pack, HUA360 Radio Adapter, DX Series 5x7 speaker lid speakers and their RC-Link Amplifier Remote Control and I'm very happy with all.
If interested check www.hawg-wired.com or call them at (510)894-2999 and ask for Mike or Justin. They're great guys and will help you out in any way they can.
Hope this helps.
