Well the ink isnt dry on my paperwork yet but i'm already making my mod list! First order of business for me is to toss out this wimpy audio system and get this thing sounding as good as it rides. I am curious if anyone else has done any extensive audio modifications to their Visions, or if they know of threads/pics for ones who have.

So far I have found a few guys that have replaced their speakers with upgraded ones, but i am looking to get a little more aggressive with it. I plan on running an ipad mini for a source/nav unit and am trying to figure out the most ideal mounting for it as we speak.

Ultimately I would like to do some custom work with the speakers, am thinking custom pods on the fairing to hold some nice JL 6'5 components, and a small removable enclosure that will tuck into to right side saddlebag with a single subwoofer.

Main questions I had, was what is the capacity of the stock charging system on these bikes? I am probably looking at running 2 amps, a 2 channel for the mids/highs and a mono for the sub and didnt want to get into voltage problems by putting too large of a draw on the stock setup.

Second question was respect to amps. I see systems like HogWired, but they seem kind of overpriced, especially compared to some of the mini amps that Rockford Fosgate makes. I was curious if anyone can reccomend some amplifiers to use. Thanks for the help!

2 amps how deaf are you :crzy: maybe others might not want to hear what you like.
Do a search here there was a post about amps and speakers. Maybe its in the tech forum

Update - HawgWired no longer makes anything for the vision... they list a wiring harness on their web site, but its for an old style amp that they dont make anymore.

Sooo... looks like i'm on my own here!

Ok new update... equipment is on the way! So far this is the list:

Ipod Mini w/ lifeproof case and RAM mount on handlebar for a source unit w/ a bluetooth receiver. (eventual plans will be to remove the factory radio and build a custom molded panel to fully integrate the ipad, thats a bit down the line though!)

Rockford Fosgate PBR300x2 for mid/high's
Rockford Fosgate PBR500x1 for sub's
2 JL Audio 6W3's in custom enclosure mounted in right saddlebag
2 JL Audio M650's in custom fairing pods over stock speaker locations.

Dont plan on keeping the trunk on the bike for around town runs, but I will install a pair of Polk AA2521's in the factory trunk mounts for rear fill when its in place.

Will be pulling her apart and starting the install this weekend, hopefully by next week it will sound as good as it rides!
