What about mounting those bullet speakers on the crash bars like we see on the handlebars? Do you think they could work if pointed right at the rider? Maybe hang them upside down so they are inside the bars. Would it look cheesy?

I bet something could be fabbed up to work with the Victory hard lowers like on the XCT to fit in the spot where glove box is.

I had a big J&M 7" speaker setup on my last Harley, in the fairing, lowers, everything. In my experience, it was a waste of money. Added a "full" sound to the music when sitting still but once the bike was moving you couldn't hear the speakers pointed at your knees. If I were you and looking for more sound,. put your money into a good set of 6.5" Focals and a good watt amp pushing them in your fairing with some component tweeters. In the end you will have a better system for practical riding for less money,.. that is my personal experience which may differ from others.

Chainsaw what about bag speakers? I have spoke with a few guys saying they don't make much difference while cruising. Some guys say it makes a huge difference... What's your opinion?

Anything behind your head will not be heard at speed (my speed,.. some guys ride like grandpa.. haha) There are exceptions to the rule,.. if your running stock pipes and a killer amp/speaker combo you can make it sound good. Also if your willing to give up the saddlebag space not only for speakers, but for amps etc.. you can make it sound really good. I however, am not willing to give up any room.

I just put a pair of Clarion 6.5" and a Clarion 4 channel running 75 watts RMS in my XC. I think I am done with the stereo... I can hear it loud and clear at 80mph so should be good enough.
