  • Speakers for an Electra glide fairing

    Hi everybody,

    I bought my 2003 roadstar 1600 last April. The previous owner had put what I think is an Electra glide fairing on it. He bought a Harley soon after installing the fairing so he never put an audio system in the fairing. I have put speakers in the outer slots and plugs in all the small gauge slots. I put a pioneer radio in but have one problem left with the large gauge slots in the center of the fairing.

    I am having trouble figuring out which speakers to put in the center gauge slots and how to mount them. If anybody has done this and can post some pictures and/or brief instructions on how they got the job done that would be awesome! Thank you for the responses.

    i mounted polk marine speakers in my batwing fairing and the work great. Just get on ebay and shop around and be sure to check the mounting hole size closely. 5 different 5.25 speaker manufacturers had 5 different mounting hole sizes, so do your research.

      How did you mount them? I am having trouble figuring out how to secure the speakers. The center gauge spots don't have mounting screw holes like the outer speaker holes have. Once I get home on Monday, I will post pictures so you can get a better idea of what I am talking about.

    A little involved but here's what I did.

    The speakers then mount to the aluminum plate. 4" speakers as I recall for the gauge holes.
