I'm in need of an audio upgrade (new speakers & and an amp to push them)......I've looked & can;t find any input on what folks here seem to think about Soundtsream? I found a really good deal on a Sounstream PN4.520D.
Looking to handle a set of Hertz HCX 165's in the stock position and a set of 5.25" Hertz-Kappa's or Focals in the side of the fairing.

Any thoughts?

Also- what size tweeters would be needed if I decide to install in teh lower 2 gage spots?

Thanks (this is an area in which I am just not really familiar)....

I have a soundstream PN4.520D kicks ass! You can't beat it for the money. I like it more than the Hawgwired 400w amp I have in the fairing. Only because I SPENT 400 BUCKS ON IT. I think I spent 130.00 on the soundstream and it sounds just as good if not better. I have it driving two 6x9's in my lids and 2 5.25's in my tour pac pods. It sounds great!!!

Thanks for the input Pat..... I have read nothing but good reviews so for the price I found, I think I'm gonna go ahead & pull the trigger on it......

Soundstream

I'm running the P4.520 pushing 4 JBL 2-ohm speakers. What I like about the amp is you can push it HARD even in 2-ohm, and it doesn't emit a lot of heat. They also have the ST4.1000 that's about the same size.

I have the 2 channel pn2-350d driving Kappas in the fairing and could not be more happy with it. Great bang for the buck.

I too have never heard anything bad about the Picasso amps. I thought about picking up a small 2 ch to power my TP pod speakers with a quick detach.

I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one. That's for sure. Good luck.

The *only* downside I've heard --- is that it can but not always interfere with your FM radio reception. I haven't had a problem with mine. Others have.

For what its worth I have a Pn2.350D running with JM RokkerXX's and it's fan freaking tastic .

Yep I am running 2 of the PN4.520 on 8 Infinity Kappas and they are rock solid no complaints. They are a little large and with the inner fairing spaekers I had to mount both in tour-pak, then made a aluminum shelf above them so I can still use the Tour-pac the other nice thing about mounting them tbere is easy access to gain adjustments :D

I heard the same thing, How I was going to loose FM reception... I haven't noticed any issues with reception... However my antenna is still in the stock location, I wonder if those who have had issues were using a hidden antenna?

My FM reception went down but was not lost. I still run the whip on the rear fender.

I'm running two sets of Polk Audio on an ST4.1000. One set MM6501 and one set of MM651. All in the fairing with a Sony marine media HU. Amp fits nicely behind HU and seems to power them quite nicely. I'm no expert though.
