When it comes to enjoying great music on your Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the team of audio upgrade specialists at Adrenaline Autosound in Clayton, North Carolina, has the tools and training to get the job done right. From our premium source unit, amplifier and speaker upgrades to options for factory radio integration, we can turn your Street Glide or Road King into a rock concert on wheels. Let’s look at a few of the motorcycle audio upgrade solutions we have available while we explain what makes our audio system design and installation process unique.
Premium Audio System Design
Designing an audio upgrade for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle involves a lot more than choosing speakers that sound good and pairing them with an amp. The products used on a motorcycle need to be designed from the ground up to handle the harsh vibrations associated with this unique application. We choose speakers and amplifiers that can sustain long-term operation at high volume levels while continuing to offer superb sound quality. The amplifiers feature high-efficiency Class-D designs that maximize their performance to deliver the music you want without taxing the electrical system on your motorcycle.
In most instances, we combine a set of component or coaxial speakers in the front fairing with a 5×7 driver in factory saddlebag locations. For custom applications, we often use a full-range coaxial 8-inch speaker on the inside of the rear fairings to ensure that your music is reproduced with enough volume to drown out wind and exhaust noise. Our expertise in choosing the right speakers for your application will create an audio system that sounds great and will last for decades.
If your motorcycle doesn’t have Bluetooth audio streaming, we have several options that will let you listen to the music stored on your phone. You can also listen to your favorite streaming services like Pandora, iHeartRadio, Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal directly from your smartphone without any wires or cables to get in the way. We can upgrade your classic Harley with a new radio that includes support for playback of all your digital media files from a USB memory stick. The displays on these new radios are easy to see, even in bright sunlight, and in most applications, we can integrate the new radio into exiting handlebar-mounted audio system controls.
Expert Motorcycle Audio Installation
Proper component installation is as important as choosing the right products. The MECP Master-level certified technicians at Adrenaline Autosound never take shortcuts when it comes to integration. All amplifiers are mounted on acrylic plastic or aluminum plates to ensure they are secure. All electrical connections are soldered to maximize reliability, and cables are bundled and secured with automotive-grade cloth tapes to prevent rattles and buzzes. Our system designs and installations are more than just reliable – they ensure that your motorcycle is easily maintained and serviced by the dealership or a motorcycle mechanic. Easily accessible quick-disconnects on saddlebag speakers are a prime example of how our attention to detail sets us apart.
If you choose to include a digital signal processor (DSP) in your system, our team has extensive experience in tuning these devices to deliver amazing realism and dynamics. A signal processor or an amp with integrated audio signal processing is highly recommended for 2014 and newer Harley-Davidson motorcycles with the BOOM! Box audio system.
