Huh, these speakers looks bad. So here is the plan:

  1. Replace all speakers with Rockford Fosgate T1650
  2. Add two more speakers to engine guard bars.
  3. Run new power and speaker wires.
  4. Install new Rockford Fosgate PBR300X4 amplifier to run all 6 speakers.

Let’s start with speakers

Fairing speakers installed with speaker adapters. Stock speakers are 5 1/4″and new speakers have 6 1/2″size. Stock speaker grill has been removed, because new speakers looks so good 🙂

Rear speakers also installed with adapter rings to fit in these small boxes.

And here is the roll bars speakers. We’ve used custom boxes for the speakers

Amplifier will be installed in the “beer box”. To run all wires for power and speakers and input from the radio we had to drill the hole in the beer box. All wires comes in one thick and protected harness through special waterproof plug

This black box on the last picture is for new amplifier. Here is how we made it

Russian birch, few screws, carpet, grill mesh and some MDF.

Here is the first audio system in this bike. It sounds very loud and clear, and even this really nice system can be dramatically improved. How we did it?  Please wait next post 😉

By the way, here is the video how this system sounds like
