Was told I couldn't install speaker lids in bags

I have a 2005 Glide. The tech at the dealership said that with the stock stereo I can't install speaker lids. He said it'd only work on 2006 and up stereos because of the OHM's or something like that. I'm VERY ignorant to stereo/audio lingo, so he kinda lost me. I'm already wanting a new head unit, and have been looking at Kenwoods with the Hawg Wired wiring harness to use my hand controls. If I went with a newer stereo, will that allow me to install speaker lids? Thanks for any help here!

In a word... Yes. You can always add amps, speakers, components. Don't listen to techs at dealerships, go to a stereo store or read up on all the wonderful things you can spend your money on on these posts

What he^^ said! Harley boomˇ audio speakers may not be compatible with your head unit and that's ALL the HD "techs" seem to know about, but I find it hard to believe the 2005 head unit is incompatible with every speaker and amp in the world!

I didn't really ask about amps or speakers for the fairing. Just for lids. That sounds like a good idea though. I think I'll head to the local Best Buy and chew on some punk kids ear about stereo logic. Thanks!

while the tech is 'sorta' correct. if you are going to go with a new head unit, amps, etc. then you should have no problems.

the current hk system came out in 2006. 2005 and back use the old radiosound systems which are 4 ohm, while the hk are 2 ohm. and it is not a direct swap to replace the 2005 system with the newer 2006 system. uses different plugs.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

There are better options than what came stock on any Harley. While the HK is leaps and bounds above the old radiosound unit, if I were to upgrade it'd be with something aftermarket. Do that and the possibilities are endless.

don't go to best buy. best buy is for when you already know what you want. find a stereo shop in your area for real help.

Thanks for the feedback everybody. I've been pricing stereo's, amps, and speakers. The lids may wait till next winter.

Shop around for what you are looking for, then look for it on Amazon. You'll be amazed how much cheaper you can find it for. So much so, you may still be able to afford your lids...

do yourself a favor and search this site for the audio info, you will find just about every answer you are looking for. Depending on what you are trying to solve, you may find adding speakers to inner fairing or lowers (if you have them) may be a better solution. Again, search and read, its all here. Good luck with your project.
