Product Research

Features

Amplifier Inputs: The amp has three inputs; RCA, mini-jack, and Bluetooth. All three are inputs are live simultaneously, so if more than one is connected, selection must be made by turning all but one source off.

Note: If more than one source connected to the line inputs (RCA and 3.5mm) is turned on, it's likely you'll hear static through the speakers in addition to music, even if the source is muted or paused.

Speaker Mounting: The speakers are designed to mount to a round tube using the adjustable stainless steel clamps. Six different spacer sizes are included for use with tubes from 0.75" to 1.25" (approximately). Once the speakers are in place, but before the brackets are tightened, you can adjust the mounting angle. After mounting, the speakers can still swivel almost 360°.

Wiring: All the wiring is fixed length and already attached to the speakers and amplifier. Each speaker has a 37" input wire attached and the wires from all four speakers are attached to a single Molex plug. The speaker output wires and the power and ground wires attached to the amplifier are routed together for 18" in a nylon sleeve. Three inches from the sleeve, the speaker wires are attached to a Molex plug (which connects to the plug attached to the speaker wires). The power and ground wires extend 6-1/2' beyond the sleeve with a 10 amp fuse in-line with the power wire.

Volume: The rotary volume control has a 76" cable attached that plugs into the amp and mounts in a round hole in a panel, 0.27" diameter.

Q
How many decibels is this product? I have a Harley with a loud exhaust and have trouble finding speakers that aren't drowned out by my pipe
[ Brettmk13  May 29, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
I have an 08 rocker, short Shot exhaust without baffling and can hear it at 80mph with a bandanna around my ears. As far as decibels I would guess around 140-150 range ( just a guess). For the price it's the loudest I've heard. Twice as loud as the harley set I first bought.
[ Christopher  Jun 06, 2018 ]
Q
Does the amp get hot? Can you get this in black? Of course taking precautions with the jacks and lights, can I spray paint the amp without causing a heat problem?
[ dennis  Apr 05, 2018 ]

A
I'm really not sure about the paint but it does get warm especially on long rides with it cranking . it would be nice in black but I'd try to call the manufacturers
[ ANTHONY  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
The Imp gets a little warm I have it in a leather bag attached to the frame down by the oil filter on my bike I don't know anything about spray painting it but I've enjoyed what I bought so far
[ Robbie joe  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
The amp heats up pretty significantly. Haven't had any overheating issues but it gets pretty warm.
[ Tyler  Apr 23, 2018 ]
Q
Can you get this system with brackets that will fit 2inch bars?
[ Chris  Sep 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I have 1" bars on my Harley. I had to make some bushings for the brackets with some cork gasket material for them to fit snug. The brackets had room for expansion and I believe you could get them to work on your bars as well. I like the system and it's been wet once or twice and still belts out the tunes. Good value for your money.
[ Mike  Sep 10, 2017 ]

We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.

Q
I'm looking for golf cart speakers. Can this be paired with a powered subwoofer?
[ remst  Jun 07, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This amp is strictly designed to power the 4 3" speakers. But you can put a powered subwoofer into the system if your receiver has a subwoofer output. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
