Installation was easy and straightforward. Plugged the Sirius satellite radio right into it. Sound is great while parked or at Town speeds but I was disappointed at highway speeds it was not louder than the Harley-Davidson Boom system that it replaced.

Pros: Easy install fits good sounds great at low speeds

Cons: Still difficult to hear at highway speeds

Just a fluke?

Bernard from Columbia, TN on 9/15/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this for my 2005 Harley FatBoy Anniversary and finally installed it after about a week. At first, I was extremely impressed with it. The sound is far better than I expected. I have a windshield and at 75-80 on the highway I could still hear it clearly. It had been on for about 4 days and I came home from vacation to find that even with the ignition off and locked, the lights were lit up on the unit. I tried to turn it off and nothing. I unhooked the auxiliary (switched) wire and it still stayed on. I had to pull the main fuse out and disconnect the switched wire (it made a strange noise) and it finally shut down. As soon as I replaced the fuse (switched power still unhooked) it came back on again. The whole time, it would not play music or let my phone connect to it. After work, I reconnected everything out of curiosity (to make sure I hadn't pinched the wire harness causing a short) and it didn't come back on until I turned the ignition on, and allowed me to connect my phone to it and it played normally. After a while, it stopped again and wouldn't turn off. I contacted the awesome support team at Crutchfield and they shipped me a new one (got it today). I really like the unit and I hope this was only a fluke. I plan to swap them out tomorrow and put it through the paces over the weekend to make sure it's good. Cross your fingers.....

Pros: Great sound, simple installation, easy to use, and looks good.

Cons: Wire harness is very thick and requires quite a bit of room to install, had to exchange the unit after only 2 weeks.

Like most speakers of this type ie. JBL, airaid etc. They do get a bit louder with use. @ first i was a little disappointed, but they have gotten louder. However above 65 mph they are weak. However on the intrastate with helmet i use ear phones. Over the ear, or behind the neck. 8
