Today we working on 2018 Road Glide speacial. Our “signature” set with Focal FDP Sport amplifier and Focal HDK-16514 speakers in the fairing with Rockford Fosgate 6×9 saddlebag speakers
But just four speakers is not enough! Customer wants little bit more!
So this “little bit more” turned out in 2 more speakers and one more amplifier.
Installing new Focal HDK165-14 speakers in the fairing
And Rockford Fosgate 6×9 saddle bag speakers
Next- 4 channel amplifier inside the fairing.
I wish i can istall this amp here, but OEM radio is way too big
So i have to use oem location with custom made bracket (3mm aluminum plate)
Now it’s time for 8″ Marine Coaxial speakers with Horn tweeters
Lightweight marine speakers. Looks really nice!
The only way to install this speakers on this bike is to put them in saddlebags
Here is some pictures of the process
Cut the hole and make speaker bracket
looks a bit ugly for now
constantly check fitment!
Bracket must be 100% watertight! All the gaps filled with chopped fiberglass mat mixed with resin. It makes the bracket rock solid and watertight
Also i soaked the wood in fiberglass resin
Few layers of paint and clear coat for extra protection
Black carpet for finish look
Bracket and speaker installed
Still have some room inside the saddlebags. Small helmet fits easy
Now it’s time for amplifier install.
waterproof connectors with quick release as usual 🙂
That’s it! Bike is ready. Loud clear and got some nice punch \m/
