Podcast-Upon popular request from our audience, we will discuss & review four major brand name speaker and amplifier systems for replacing the stock Boom Audio speakers & adding an amplifier on 2014 & newer Harley-Davison touring motorcycles equipped with the Boom™! Box Infotainment system.
We have spent time with each of these audio systems and have tested them heavily in many different real world environments. We are bikers through and through, so our tests are for the average day to day biker out there. We did not test in some sterile controlled environment like many manufacturers do.

Hey Ryan! One of the best podcasts yet! HD (Darth Vader) trying to hard to hornswaggle their customers and you guys give us the straight poop. Quick question: I bought the Hogtunes fairing speakers, 200 amp, AND their new LOWER fairing speakers. Since Big Daddy Cain mentioned that he would buy only front speakers since that is all you really hear, that seemed to make the Hogtunes upper/lower fairing the best combo (and the best value) but no one mentioned the available lower fairing speakers in the podcast. BTW, will the install video address these lowers? Thanks for all you do and I really appreciate your thoughts on this one. Mike
Ryan Urlacher says
Thanks for the great feedback Mike!! The only bike that had lowers on our 4 installations was Big Daddy’s bike. Our Hogtunes video will surely get you through that, but doesn’t actually show the lower speaker install. Sorry. The meat of the video (wiring etc) is there though and you’ll just run am extra wire from what we show you to the lower fairing speakers (bolt on). As always, we’re here to help, so get the video to help you. If you find it lacks or are not satisfied we’d certainly refund you brother….. Bikers first here at Law Abiding Biker Media.

Ryan thank you for all you do for us bikers . I found you on YouTube and I’m quite happy with all of your free videos and your emails I did purchase a that one of the phone grippers for my motorcycle really like it works great I did buy Vance & Hines fp3 tuner. I use the gripper to put my cell phone in so I can use the ft3 to monitor temperature in other systems on the bike it does not have gauges for.
Again thanks for all the great content keep up the good work and I did send you a little donation today I’m not a patron yet but I might get there here soon.
Sincerely Daniel J Varga
