Default Anyone put speakers on their Sporty? Reccomendations?

Howdy All,

Have been thinking about putting some speakers on my 2003 XL 1200 C. Does anyone have speakers on their bike? Suggestions on brand, placement, etc. Also, is installation a pain?

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts/advice.

Thanks!

I think the Sportster exhaust tone is music to my ears.

I see a lot of bikes with speakers & straight through pipes.Can't understand that!I love music but I like the sound of my Khromewerks slipons, sounds like a Harley should but not an antisocial PITA.Don't think I'd ever have speakers on a bike

I agree- if tastes are not to be discussed, why would you wish to annoy everyone around you with your taste in music? Speakers belong in your helmet- PERIOD.
