Hey guys, I have the newest Hawg Wired six pack on order. Being a mod sicko like most of you guys on this forum, I am already thinking that I should do more, even though I have not even heard this system yet..

Question being, i was thinking of adding 2 more 6.5's in the faring, has anybody added speakers to the six pack without adding another amp? Would I be better off pumping full power to 2 zx speakers, or adding 2 more shallow mounts (probably the RF's or maybe polks) to the faring and dividing the amps power by 4?

Sorry if this is a dumb question and the answer is obvious. But hey, if you don't know, ask. Thanks in advance.

you can depending how you wire the speakers....

series vs parallel but I cant recall what way.

You'll need all the speakers to be the same ohm i think.

I called HW with the same question.....the guy laughed at the fact I had not even installed the 6 pack yet and already wanted to expand on it.

I asked the same question a bit back... this thread might help you.

this link is in the thread, but good reading here... at the bottom you can plug in the lowest stable ohm of the amp and it will show you how to wire the speakers... your amp is 2ohm stable and your ZX speakers are 4ohms. (if they have not changed the 6 pack )

Thanks, the link was very helpful. Did you end up actually adding the extra speakers?

Does anyone know when the Hawg Wired equipment will be off back order?
I placed an order in December for their HW 6 Pack and I'm still waiting.
It's my understanding that the amp and installation kit are on back order without any new info as to when it would be available.
It's the only thing I'm waiting for to get my bike back together.
I'm going to put in a call to them tomorrow.
If I find out anything I'll let everyone know.
Thanks

Cool keep us posted. I was actually wishing we had a thread on it cause I know more than a few of us on here are waiting on their stuff.

When adding more speakers; More power is ALWAYS - better, cleaner, louder.
With the new Hawg Wired amps you can fit 4 into the nose. I would use 1 amp/ pair of speakers, if your looking for more.
I spoke with the guys at HW last Friday, the new amps are being shipped, waiting on the remotes, which are supposed to ship the 1st week of Feb.

Big 10-4 on the more power.. I already started cutting holes for the RF slim mounts inner faring, so I'm gonna give it a try running 4 speakers off this 1 amp. If it does not sound really good I will know what the problem is. Just does not seem totally necessary to buy a extra amp when the RF's are 70w RMS. and the Hawg amp is 2 ohm stabil.

I just got off the phone with Rich, from Hawg Wired.
He told me that my 6 pack shipped on January 23rd and I should have it by the 30th.
He told me that the reason for the delay was the sale they had in December sold out all of their speakers.
He also told me that they are shipping orders as we speak.
Hope this info helps all that are waiting for Hawg Wired Equipment.
Best of Luck to All!

The HW amps are 100 RMS/channel, which is over 40% more power than the RF. Having an amp/pair of speakers gives you more head room which equals more clarity at higher volumes with less distortion. But you can always have/add more, that's part of the sickness.

any progress? this is a question I have also, I'd think if any amp had a good
chance of providing clear 2ohm operation it would be theirs.

not that I am looking to change, personally, until they're flush with stock on the new stuff and I have some big exrta bucks

remember when pairing speakers, the weaker speaker is duplicated, so make sure the output levels are similar to start with, or you will be decreasing the overall capabilitiy

I actually wanted to take a DCRSZX system and add two more speakers last year as an experiment, so this thread is close to that concept.

one thing for sure, the hawgwired crossovers sure do rock

I have a tracking number on the six-pack, it will be here today. :)

I already cut in and installed the inner faring RF's, so no turning back there.

Had a bit of a snafu with ordering, so my Sony install kit won't be here for another week, so I'm not going to be able to hear it until then.

My last problem is I've never heard any aftermarket systems to compare this to. So it's going to be hard for me to tell how impressive it actually is. I'm thinking since I don't plan on riding anytime soon I will hook up the six pack by themselves as if I don't have the fosgates let it rip, then hook up all 4 speakers in parallel to see how much better it sounds..
