Default Hardball stereo

Been working on my hardball stereo for few weeks now. I figured I'd try one with stock lids and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Running without an amp for now but I may put one in. Hopefully my pictures work.

That's wild. Haven't seen one with the head unit in the saddlebag.

Yeah i was going for something different plus I couldn't think of any better way without putting a fairing on the bike. I bought a Bluetooth remote that will mount to the bars and control my phone

The saddlebags on these things seem loose; how do you prevent the rattling when the bass hits?

Well I did add a extra washer to them to make them a bit tighter but it was mainly to support the weight. They are just 6.5 speakers so they don't have much bass to them.

be real careful with that stereo and amp.
You only have a 38 amp charging system. That means alot of staring on battery and regulator

Excuse my ignorance I'm not a music on a bike person, but don't those speakers fill up with water when it rains?

That was a concern when doing it but I'm hoping the charging system is keeping up. I've been riding for about 3 weeks now and so far so good. Yes the speakers will fill up with water if I get caught in the rainstorm. Still working on the solution.

Won't two speakers work against each other in a single bag? I would think the pressure from one, would cancel out the others pressure thus killing any bass.

They all seem to be in sync with each other. It's clear as day up to about 70 then it gets a little harder to hear. Wife hears it fine though.
