The lady at my dealership found a vendor and ordered it. I had $415.00 in points and a $50.00 gift card. So cost to me. $335.00. Haha. That's a win. I got the 2180.15 RG package. I was going to get the 4180.14. But I'm trying to spend less money so I can work less. I put in just under 800 hours OT. Not doing it this year. The 2180 was 200.00 less. Which ain't that big a deal. But when you add the extra set of speakers, pods and anything else I need. Its another 600 to 800. Depending on speakers. This package I got the BT465 6.5 Titan II speakers. Has the line levelers and all install parts needed. Cant wait.

I have the 2180 and Biketronics setup. I think you'll like it. It beats anything Harley puts out in my humble opinion.

The awesome part about that amp is you can run four 4ohm speakers off of it. All you need is the speakers and pods when you get the spare coin. Not sure if you knew that or not, but the good thing is you do now! My suggestion too is you might want to get 2 longer bolts for the amp mount. The originals on my '15 were not long enough. You are gonna love your bike even more after you install this set up!

Can’t pass up a deal like that, congrats. I think your going to like it for sure. I started with just the Biketronics speakers in the fairing. As my bike sits now, 7.1’s in the fairing, 6.5’s in the lowers, Hog tunes lids kit from Biketronics with there 6x9’s all pushed by a 4180 and a 2180. After paint for the pods and the lids and all the other this and that to get it all together it was spendy. But one thing for sure it fucking rocks. Congrats again, can’t go wrong with the Biketronics stuff in my opinion.

Congrats! Definitely win win there! I am considering changing mine from the boom 2 like Eddie but it is on there and it works good. I can hear it just fine at 80 so will be putting it on hold for now.

I used the BT line leveler and that mount on my Soundstream install, I’m a fan.
Tip from a newb- make sure the mount is slid all the way up before you tighten it. It’ll save you cursing and scratching your head wondering why the headlight/fairing won’t go back together.

Side note- I did just shy of 400hrs OT this year. Double that!? Fock no, not if it was paid triple time. Good for you on cutting back. You’ll never see a Brinks truck in a funeral procession, anyway.

Congrats on that deal! If you buy a "Box" system BT is the one to get.

I know Eddie likes the J stuff, but I just can't figure out why. It is just BLAHHHH to me.

To each their own. Everybody's ears are different

Once again, Congrats on the new BT system. Enjoy

Congrats John, definitely a upgrade to stock, plus a lifetime warranty to boot...Thanks a killer...Yes, there's better or worst, one of two?? :nerd:
Had to use it once, fill out form , send it back, get new one...What? That easy...Above the call in customer service support..What's that?? Lifetime warranty...
Great amp and solid speakers, now I'm not familiar with the infotainment system (HU), so you may have to tweak it to your taste....My missing link was my HU, from a old Radio sound, to a Alpine Bluetooth everything...Solid.
Congrats and post pixs asap...

40 hours a week x 52 weeks = 2080 hours for a year. Deduct your vacation, PTO and holidays from that and I'm bet you're closer to 46 weeks a year. You're working roughly 70 hours a week.

Like ZeroDark30, I'm just under 400 hours OT this year and it's sucks. It's ALL FORCED. I don't volunteer for any of it. My first couple of years in this department I was over 600 hours per year. Hence my body being beat up so damn bad.

Cut them hours back if you can and enjoy life more.

Oh, enjoy those new tunes also. We need to meet up this year so I can check out that system.

That's about right. 13 vacation days and 10 holidays. I dont use my PTO. I get a bonus for not using it and the get it paid out. 61 months without a call off. That call off was my last heart attack. Was only out a week. And I worked 45.5 weeks this year.

The PTO bonus adds up to 500 bucks and them the 4 days pay = bike parts. Lol.

We'll have to meet up. I'll head that way. You head this way.
