Best sound system for our ride
« on: May 15, 2017, 09:10:34 AM »
Built the ultimate front fairing only system on my Stratoliner but can work for multiple bikes (I use all space in my bags). 1 pr Rockford Fosgate T1650 (6.5" speakers) and a T400x2AD mini amp (new rail boost technology has the most output and super efficient) They fit perfectly in the fairing and amp under fairing. Settings at 80hz HP (high pass) with a rockford Fosgate RFBTRCA Bluetooth adapter so you can connect your phone at will. The system sounds amazing and is insane. Big volume, a lot of detail in the music and ready for more. If you want to add speakers in the bags add the T400x4AD (4 channel).... if you don't have a front fairing the Batwing fairing is aftermarket as well as many others on eBay. Any questions at all text me or PM me.

One note, on the Strat Deluxe's that have the GPS from the factory they use a different cover where you have the amp mounted. It is a "humped" cover so the GPS has room to wing upward. Doesn't leave room for amp. See part #15 on the attached schematic/page and you can see the shape is anything but flat

That definitely sounds like a much better quality system than what comes from the factory.
Thanks for posting this up.

Looks great Alvin!

I have been pouring through all of the posts on different audio set ups...and I am overwhelmed.

I am looking for something that I can install myself, fairly easy, does not required cutting apart the fairing for things to fit.....does this set up fit this bill?

Just so you know. I have an 09 that I converted to a deluxe including the GPS.
The amp WILL fit under the fairing. Takes a bit of tweaking. I can try to find some pics if anyone is interested.
Cheers

Here is a pic from a previous post before I cleaned up the wiring.
I hope you can see it. Photo bucket doesn't like sharing to websites anymore.

Cheers
