Despite what people think about Audio on a motorcycle.and the flame ill be getting online,im going to be putting one on my cbr250 anyways.go tell the harley guys how you really feel about their audio systems.

the Amp i will be using is a Rockford Fosgate PBR300x4
picking the amp up today,was too busy yesterday.

-fits in the passenger seat compartment
=puts out more then rated power,will prolly put out 330-350 RMS.
-getting the amp new for 189$ instead of 269.99$

Rockford Fosgate® - PBR300X4

i will be using 8ga wire with 2 fuses(just because i have 2 fuse holders laying around) with 30amp fuses. one before the battery and one before the amp.

not too sure on what speakers i will be getting as of now because i dont want to get some expensive car audio speakers that have a chance to get messed up with water from washing the bike or rain in the future.

i plan on speakers in the fairings and possibly super tweeters near the gauges.

all wires will be hidden,will take pics of the installation,also under the main seat where the battery lays has room for wiring/fuse holders etc. but not enough room for this amp.will have room for the smaller motorcycle amps that ive seen on uniqcycles but those amps are small and dont do rated power.

PS:the L-Wrench that came with the bike doesnt fit to take off the seat.so id suggest adding one to your toolkit incase your batt dies one day.

Helmet bluetooth kit > bike audio system. Also a lot cheaper at $160. Plus it is hands free for cell phone and if you have GPS on your phone you can hear the instructions.

no room for an ashtray with my LCD monitor and PS3 Slim.

somebody:i have been reccomended the bluetooth kit or justsoem simple ear phones..its a nice and cheaper route,i drive around my city n make smaller stops,the earphones would get annoying to place in my ear,put helmet on/refit the ear pieces etc.

and btw,i enjoyed the comments,were funny.

I'm all for making it more convenient for daily use but I just don't do anything like a sound system lol. I've just got my iPhone docked on the bike and I'm retrofitting a charger in on a relay so that it will turn on and off with the ignition. That with a bluetooth kit on my helmet = clean, functional, and discrete.

Best bluetooth kit I can find on the market (best reviewed) Sena SMH-10

I wonder how well you'll be able to hear that audio system going 65 on the highway... But hey at least when you are riding around town everyone will be able to hear you listening to the Jonas Brothers. I think I'll stick with the ipod and bluetooth headphones for sure.
