Let’s look at what Rockford has put together to give your sound system the sound quality and volume capability it deserves.
Why Do I Need to Upgrade My Harley Audio System?
When it comes to the potato-potato exhaust note, Harley has nailed every aspect of the sound of their bikes. On the other hand, when it comes to audio there is room for improvement. If you own a Harley cruiser, you have undoubtedly realized that the system simply doesn’t play loud enough and gets pretty rough at high volume levels. Limited power and inexpensive speakers are the culprits…Rockford Fosgate has the solution!
Rockford Fosgate HD14-TKIT
At the heart of the HD14-TKIT are a set of Rockford’s TMS65 6.5-inch coaxial weather resistant speakers and a TM400X4ad four-channel amplifier. The speakers use high-power neodymium motors to provide solid bass and excellent efficiency in a compact package. A massive 35mm voice coil, in addition to a carbon-fiber reinforced polypropylene woofer cone aids power handling. The integrated tweeter uses a proprietary film dome design.
The TM400X4ad amplifier provides up to 100 watts per channel into 2- or 4-ohm loads. If you are running a single set of speakers, the amp can be bridged to provide 200 watts. The Element Ready design of the amp can withstand exposure to dust and humidity and is completely at home on a motorcycle.
The Rockford Fosgate HD14-TKIT includes a mounting bracket for the amplifier and a wire harness that includes provisions for upgrading the rear Tour-Pak speakers with another set of TMS65 (on 2014 and newer bikes).
Older Harley-Davidson Road Glide and Street Glide Applications
Rockford has similar Power Series systems for the 1998 to 2013 Road Glide called the HD9813RG-TKIT and a kit for the 2006 to 2013 Street Glide: the HD9813SG-TKIT. Both kits use TMS65 speakers, the same TM400X4ad Power Series amplifier and include mounting brackets, grilles and harnesses to ensure a reliable installation. Likewise, rear speaker options are available in the form of the TMS5 5.25-inch version of the TMS6.
Expert Installation by Tunes-N-Tint
Both the HD9813RG-TKIT and HD14-TKIT install without the need for us to cut or modify any part of your bike. The included brackets use existing fastener locations, and the wiring harnesses are terminated with factory-compatible connectors. Once we have everything installed, we will adjust the amplifier to provide maximum performance and reliability.
