fairing speakers

I have been looking at 6.5" Infinity Kappas and really leaning that way, but was wondering...can a 6x9 fit in the fairing? If so, where can I get an adapter? thanks

As far as I know in the stock position the only adapters they offer are for 6.5 without cutting the fairing a bit. But some audio expert will def confirm or deny that.

Without cutting you can get a 5x7 in there with the CVO adapters. 6x9 would be totally custom

Here are some 6X9's in my RG

You can get 6X9's in if you want to take the time to do it.
If you decide to go this way be sure to get some that have the lowest profile grilles possible so you don't have interference with the fork tube bolts.

Here is a link to how I got mine installed:

Got the Polk Audio Marine grade speakers at Best Buy and you can get an extended warranty for a reasonable price. Their installer was interested and asked me to come by when I finished. He thought it was a good job, but they are not allowed to do bikes at the store.

You can also buy one of the custom inner fairing that have them in the approximate position of the top of the glove boxes. IMO if you put 6x9 in the area where the forks are on the inner fairing you'll be losing a lot of the sound. The 6.5s provide good sound in that position, and you're losing some with them, 69 provide even more. ...... let us know what you decide and how it works out.

thanks for the responses. I may try and get ahold of the cvo 5x7 speaker mounts if I can.(don't know if it is a protected part number) If not, I will just stick with the original plan of Infinity Kappa 6.5 in factory locations.(tour pack and fairing) I am putting 2-soundstream Picasso nano pn4.320d in the fairing if possible (if not they can go in the bags), pioneer 6x9 in hogtunes lids and a pair of 8" shallow midbass facing the wheels for a little added low end. I may go as far as building a small fiberglass box for the 8" but not sure yet.

Just installed the J&M 7.25 fronts, with the 5.25 rear pods. 500 watt amp, all plug and play. The CVO's do have some different custom connections due to the external amp. Awesome sound, great fit and finish.

subscribed want to see how this turns out. I am going to attack it from a different angle but with same results in mind... a pair of 6x9's, 6.5's and 4x6 speakers in the inner fairing...
