h-donut best mod ever

SOMEONE please tell me whether to get MM6501's or HawgWiredZX speakers.

I like my pioneer grills.

reficul Those are nice. I really have to get my inner fairing painted or hydrocoated. Flat black plastic looks so cheap

Neano62 and a couple more,
I did no sanding, and did spread out or pull out the Fairing, like Yaffe said to do.

reficul I trimmed the edge of the speaker grills and speaker is on the inside of the fairing. I came up with this

BAYBAGGER you can also change the 2 upper bolts to button heads bolts and clears the griles if you still have problems with it rubbing

h-donut mine 'whispily' touch, ever so slightly when the forks turn, like brushing up against a hot chick while standing line for a beer. don't even make a noise.

found a speaker, amp calculator

I did some rough back calculations, knowing what I've run,
what our chief instigator neano is running and basic dynamics.

I calculated neano's RAW db potential at 136, which makes cleaning up to
125db very possible and pleasing to listen to.

also, the 2 in your face PBRx2 and MM651 setup to RAW potential of 127db. but limited floor dynamics.

it can clean up nice at around 115db, assuming that's why people say it is adequate. even at 105-110db most people would say adequate. only about $350, maybe $800 total with an aftermarket HU. which would help you not go deaf and enjoy the shit.

of course getting that last 10db, doubling the volume, can be a $1500 to $5000 adventure, like no kidding.

I found a setup on paper that will net about 132db for $1550. all inner fairing parts, radio included.

I also came up with a couple new 'value' configs, but for me it's been there, done that, so I'm strongly working on splitting the difference, laying out a $800 version in my minds, but spending the full $1550.

so, yes, with bike audio, loud is easy, but getting louder is about $1500 a click.

reficul Piesick, it was not that bad of a bind, maybe a 1/4" of displacement, it holds the speaker tightly so its super solid after being mounted with the bolts. the fairing went back togethr just fine, the only thing i had to do is change the upper bolts in the gauge bezel and stretch the lower leggys out to clear the speaker grills, after my grill mod i should have absolutely no worry for interference
