You can barely see one of the speakers if you know they are there. I mounted the two speakers, one on each side of the speedometer. They are chrome like the speedo and almost the exact same size so they really look factory. The actual unit itself is mounted in the right side saddlebag so it can't be seen at all and the controller is mounted on the left side mirror mount. It's a very "out of sight" unit which is another reason i liked it so much.
You dont have to mount an MP3 player on your handlebars with this system. It accepts an SD Card, a USB drive or an MP3 player. I currently use a 4gb SD card which has 501 songs on it. Just put it in the slot and ride.
