When this bike came to the shop it has absolutely no bass. To get more output from the speakers which already been installed before we have to fix air leak at all of those speakers.

Also, this bike has a stock saddlebag lids with 5×7 speakers, but someone put 6.5 speakers in it using weird plywood adapters. We need new 5×7 speakers!
