Default Speaker/Performance Upgrades

I purchased a 2014 XC last year in August. So I was able to get a little more then a month riding before having to pack her up for the winter. I previously had a heavily upgraded 05 Yamaha V-star Silverado.

I want to start with a few cheaper mods that I can do early and get quick enjoyment out of. I am going to use this thread to post pictures of the upgrades and discuss them.

The audio upgrades that are on order now are the following:
Front fairing speakers: Hybrid Audio Imagine I61-2V2
Rear Trunk speakers: Hybrid Audio Imagine I51-2
Amplifier: Soundstream PN4.520D
Line Converter: PAC
Wiring: KnuKoncepts products

Performance Upgrades:
Victory Fuel Controller
LLoydz Timing Gear
LLoydz Air Filter

These performance upgrades seemed the easiest and quickest to do. I am also looking into the Freedom Performance 4" duals.

Finished the Speaker install. See below for pics of the bike and install process.





Breaking down the bike. Removed the Fairing.


Installed the Amp and the PAC line converter.


The new Hybrid Audio 6.5's in the front.


The 5.25's in the rear. I wired them into their stock wiring. So when I remove the rear trunk it disconnects the rear speakers still.


Front side again.

Great speaker bad amp. The PBR300X4 have a tendancy to overheat. I would use the Soundstream Picasso Nano or Power Acoustik Razor.

I have read that in a few spots, I was planning on purchasing a small computer fan to install next to it. That should take care of that.

The Soundstream is less expensive and a much better amp than the Rockford... The Soundstream is not water resistant though.

I think I'll go with the Soundstream. I am not too worried about water since it will be mounted under the Fairing and I never ride in bad weather (unless it catches up with me .

Is this the one you purchased?

Echo i like your thought process... I am going to try and find a used tour pack and put my stock Kicker's in it, powered by the head unit. After this riding season I will send my bag lids to Vtwin audio and get the 6x9's put in it.

I've been running that SS for a long time and through some heavy downpours never had a problem

Have any of you guys replaced the rear speakers on the trunk? Can you put 6.5's in them? Or will they only accommodate 5.25's? I have been trying to locate something in the search, but have had no luck.

I think you can do 6.5".... I talked with a guy outside the local Vic dealer says he put 6.5" in. The same guy also told me his Vic was a stage 3 putting out 140hp on the dyno. I said mmm hmmm and walked away.
