Handlebar speakers ?????

Does anyone here have a handlebar speaker setup on there VN750? if so can you please post pictures and links to where you got them ?


I am honestly thinking of making my own set, and just buying a tiny 100watt amp.

but just seeing what is out there before I take that road.


PS if anyone has a setup they would sell I would also be interested.

I saw these at the bike fest in Carlisle last year, you get the speakers and amp. You just need to plug in the music (MP3 player or other device) Sounded really good. Check it out here http://www.stccomponents.com/store/i...od&productId=3

thanks for the link.... I can get a 100watt water proof amp for $40 so looking more for a nice non distorted set of speakers. but if that set was with a water proof amp I would jump all over it.

As I understand, it is digital storage and playback unit for your tunes that is about the size of a bic lighter. It will hold like 500 songs, and weighs an ounce. All the folks who are wearing the little ear buds that have a cord going to a pocket or their hand, that appears to be empty, are listening to an i-pod.

Sorry to tell you dutter, but you and I are the last 2 old farts on the continent who don`t have one!

I am a hi tech red neck mine is built into my phone and it has a little web browser that I can see when you guys are talking about me when on the road,LOL It's one of the new smart phones. I think I need a dumb one, it outsmarts me most of the time. I do stop to do these things when in the cage or on the bike except for the listening to music thing.
