Has Anyone Tried These 6.5 inch Speajer Upgrade Boxes?

I bet these would make a huge difference in sound quality and volume levels when on the highway.

I'm interested but they are expensive.

Not tried those, but had an 8 speaker, 2 amp, DSP system on my last HD. It was crazy loud with good range of frequency.


Quick video of how it sounded. Head phones recommended.






The problem with putting 6.5" speaker on your bike is going to be power. Most coaxial 6.5's are going to need much more power than the stock system provides and space for an amp seems to be very limited on our K bikes. I've seen one video of a K16B with 5.25" in the stock location and a pair of 8" mid bass in the bags. Amp mounted in bag. Most of us would not be willing to give up that kind of space.

$200 shipping from Moscow?

Don't we have a Member here, that is from Russia, that makes custom speaker boxes for the 1600s?

You are right, an amplifier is needed. However, it can be installed under the seat. And such a system plays much better than the standard

This is my product. Ebay does not allow a new user to sell goods for more than $ 500, and my product costs 750. Many bought this on the forum and are happy with the purchase

I have purchased these boxes, and a few friends have as well. I will say the quality is top notch, this is a heck of an upgrade to the stock speaker setup. The shop that I take my bike has done a few setups. The shop that built these was offering a $50 discount, pm me if you want the promo code.

JPeesy, have some of your friends post their reviews. I've only ever seen the same two people pushing this product.

No disrespect, but I have no affiliation with Fullcomp, its a good product that I purchased, I believe in, I let others know. There is a Facebook group (K1600B) I think one other guy purchased them, but my other buddies don't get on these forums. If you don't feel comfortable with the company, then don't buy - it's that simple. I merely offered my opinion in hopes of easing others apprehensions.
