    Default Nasty Nate's amp & speakers upgrade

    Last year Nate complained about not even hearing his Road Glide Special with the first stage of HD Boom audio upgrade. And then fearing the problems that will come with this year... Moe, Dave, Tom, and myself all with big upgraded audio systems...

    He ended up with some hand-me-down audio upgrade pieces...

    He picked up an CerwinVega amp from Moe, and my Infinity Kappa 6.5" speakers...

    He found a nice cubby hole under the stock radio



    Close up, it's under there


    The old speakers out. How miserable they are...



    The speakers installed

    Right


    But then he realized that his stock speaker grills wouldn't fit over the Kappa's tweeters... So after some searching... he ended up ordering some Hogtunes grills. Which fit near perfectly.


    I still need to get some pics of it finally all installed. I'm just his always documenting guy...

    Yeah we went for full sound and half way on the gain.

    He also has a line limiter convertor to give him speaker -> RCAs.
