    Talking Speaker install

    So far so good. Here are some step by step pics of what i have done to put in my speakers. I put a 5 1/4 "waterproof" speaker in the glove box under the handle bars with a "waterproof" amp under the hood with an extra battery.

    you can fit six in one post.

    Good job with the speaker. I'm curious to see your mounting location for your extra battery. got a pic of that?

    Anways I think that's going to be a really nice setup. Whats "waterproof" mean? regular amp wrapped in ziploc? just kidding bud

    Looking good though. pics are nice to see.

    and then heres what i have so far, a carbon fiber switch in the handle bars. It is hooked up to my ipod. Ill take more pics of the inside of my glove box when i finish that part. I am getting a waterproof case for my ipod and then i am going to put foam padding in the glove box so that the pod cant go anywhere and rumble around in there. I still have another speaker and im thinking about putting it in the very top compartment and then putting a flow rite in ti to let the sound escape, but im not sure yet becasue this one speaker is plenty loud. I siliconed the speaker along with the mounting screws to make it a good seal in the glove box. What do you guys think of the second speaker placement?

    Thanks. That is why it put it in quotations. I dont know how waterproof they really are. Both the amp and the speakers claim to be waterproof. Before doing the install i hooked one up to a spair car battery in the garage and i poured a glass of water on it and splashed water on it while shaking it to try and simulate what will happen out on the water and it functioned without any problems so i decided to do it. I dont know what a waterproof amp consists except being water tight, but im sure if water gets up there and hits the fuse sticking out of the amp it will short. For the battery set up i pounded down the side of the batter tray to make it flat then put my second batter right up next to it and bungeed it together. Not the most scientific way but its a dtrong hold right now, ill know how strong it is after a day on the lake. I might end up moving the seconf batter somewhere else in the front compartement so i can put my tray bucket back in but not too worried about it right now.

    Yeah im thinking youre right i gotta find a battery mounting kit or make something else, cuz when those wakes start to hit and im bouncing around that might not turn out so well.
