Do you have one of their radios? that rock box? if so, how is it? Seems like a lot of money for an FM radio.

Re: and this small water proof radio head controller, China

oh, that's all we need... if bloody V-twins weren't loud enough already, now we'd have to put up with their music blasting out so loud they can hear it over and above their "loud pipes"...
maybe I'll be glad when my hearing goes completely....

My VTX1800 has stock pipes with these mounted on the bars. Yes, they are quite loud.

Interestingly, the enclosures are nothing more than stock HD light holders with stainless steel mesh covers on the speakers.

Re: and this small water proof radio head controller, China

How did we go from FM radios and controllers to speakers for V-twins?

Oh well. It's funny you all should mention this because I do have HD's amplifier and speakers similar to those in the post. Probably one of the biggest disappointments I've had with their products. The speakers sounded great in the showroom (naturally), but once I paid my money and got them mounted, they just couldn't generate enough volume starting around 50 MPH. Yes, I do have some fairly loud pipes on it, but most of the problem is related to the wind noise generated at these speeds. The HD parts guy told me he didn't have any problem using his Iphone connected to them, and proposed my input signal from my MP3 player wasn't large enough (in amplitude). Maybe. If so, it figures. Story of my life. Now I have to buy another MP3 player! Why? You may be asking. Because these folks don't think too kindly about accepting such things as returns.

Re: and this small water proof radio head controller, China

Yea, I think we got there because the original post had a bunch of other things on the same page. You know how us big boys are with our big toys............... But while we're off topic, you might check to see which model you have on your speakers. I think they may be Rumble Roads if they came from the HD dealer. I can't imagine they aren't loud enough if they are the 200 watt system. I had to activate the volume limiter on my Ipod Nano.

Re: and this small water proof radio head controller, China

Being I'm home only once every six months, I haven't delved into this issue, but I believe I bought the "first version" when HD started carrying them. It seems like when I was home the next time, they had came out with a successor model. Don't remember what gave it away. Maybe the newer ones were claiming more wattage. Seems like I bought them before I got the LT, otherwise, I probably wouldn't have messed w/ them to begin with.

I'd really enjoy them if I thought I was getting my money's worth, but $400 possibly down a rat hole really frost my arse.

I'll deviate by saying your location, Dean, reminds me of our trip last Sept. going thru Ks' state capital when I noticed my wife's smart phone shaking in the clamp type ram mount. I noticed it just in time because the next second it had jumped out and was sliding across the gas tank. Fortunately, I was able to grab her new phone before it could succumb to gravity. All I could think about was how the salesman of the ram-mount carried on how a phone couldn't and wouldn't fall out. I had my wife keep it in her pocket after that.
