A total upgrade for your Harley's stereo
This just in: Sometimes, you can have it all. Aquatic AV's Ultra Harley Package includes their finest all-weather stereo gear, so you can take your bike's sound from “meh” to massive all at once. With a receiver designed specifically for Harley-Davidsons, a pair of powerful speakers, a 2-channel amplifier and more, it's an awesome all-at-once upgrade.
A road-ready receiver
Aquatic AV's AQ-MP-5UBT-HS receiver gives you lots of entertainment options. It has built-in Bluetooth connectivity, a color LCD screen, and an internal device shelf that'll hold your smartphone or media player. You can enjoy your favorite AM/FM stations, connect an MP3 player to the USB port or the aux inputs, or take advantage of Bluetooth® connectivity.
The big control knob makes it easier to manage your music, and you can also use the handlebar controls. You can even add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (not included, requires subscription). This package also includes a water-resistant dust cover for the receiver and a surface-mount USB socket.
This receiver works with your Harley's stock stereo mounting bracket and wiring connections, so it's easy to install and enjoy. The 4-volt preamp outputs work with the included amp and also allow you to add a powered subwoofer later.
Two great-sounding speakers
You can't have great sound without great speakers, and Aquatic AV's HS111 Ultra Series Harley-Davidson models are up to the task. They're rated at 90 watts RMS (180 watts max), so they're more than powerful enough to cut through road noise when you're at speed.
These waterproof speakers feature complex fiber cones, aluminum baskets, and adjustable 1” silk tweeters that let you direct the sound where you want it when you're riding. The included black grilles look terrific, and these speakers are easy to install on most 1998-up Harley-Davidson models. The package includes one pair of speaker grilles and mounting rings.
A compact, powerful amp
With the weather-resistant AQ-AD300.2-MICRO 2-channel amplifier, you'll get the most out of those speakers. With 150 watts per channel at 2 ohms (300 max), you'll be impressed by the punch, clarity and detail this amp brings to anything you play.
This compact Class D amp features an adjustable high-pass/low-pass cross-over, bass boost. With a conformal-coated circuit board and corrosion-resistant construction, it's made for life on the road. The IP65 ingress protection rating means the internals are fully protected against water and dust, too.

You can adjust the display brightness from 100% for normal operation to 30% brightness to reduce screen glare during night time operation, and save these settings for Day & Night mode.
External 12V Triggers: The AQ-MP-5UBT-S has provided two independent 12V triggers (brown and brown/white wires attached to the rear chassis), activated from the optional wired remote. These could activate any 12V based device, like 12V lights or 12V motors. Load on the external triggers should not exceed 350mA.
Optional Wired Remote: The AQ-WR-5F waterproof wired remote control (sold separately) allows for 2-way communication with AQ-MP-5UBT-HS, so you can control the Aquatic AV receiver remotely while viewing song, track and other system information on the remote's back-lit LCD screen. This waterproof wired remote control mounts flush onto a flat surface and requires an extension cable (such as the AQ-EXT-24, sold separately). You can also use the AQ-Y-1 splitter (sold separately) to connect two wired remote controls (in this case, you'll need two extensions cables).
Harley Davidson Motorcycle Amplifier: The AQ-AD300.2-MICRO combines exceptional sound quality, high performance characteristics and unprecedented reliability into a 2-channel amplifier. With 300W of pure power (150W per channel at 2 Ohms) the AQ-AD300.2-MICRO packs enough punch for even the loudest of environments (like your Harley Davidson motorcycle), so your music is always clear and present.
Note: 2014 and up Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Touring models with Harley Boom Box Infotainment systems will require a system flash from the dealership before the installation of any aftermarket amplifier.
Waterproof Design: The AQ-AD300.2-MICRO's Ingress Protection rating of IP65 means the amplifier is fully protected against water and dust. Conformal coated circuit boards protect the smallest components from any humidity or atmospheric moisture, while custom molded grommets around cable extrusions and gaskets between all meeting points eliminate any chance of water or dust intrusion. Aluminum and Stainless Steel are used in chassis construction eliminating any risk of rust or corrosion.
Class D Technology: Class D (Digital) amplifiers are much more efficient than traditional amplifiers; producing less heat, lowering power consumption, reducing strain on batteries and charging systems.
4 & 2 Ohm Stable: Designed to support the widest variety of applications the AQ-AD300.2-MICRO amplifier operates at both 4ohm and 2ohm speaker configurations. Running 2ohm configurations allows more speakers to be powered and is ideal for high background noise environments such as motorcycle use.
- The amplifier is rated at 100 watts x 2 channel into 4 ohms.
- The amplifier is rated at 150 watts x 2 channel into 2 ohms.
Bridge Mode: Bridge Mode allows each channel's power to be combined for maximum output, ideal for use with a single subwoofer. The amplifier is rated a 300 watts x 1 channel into 2 ohms.
High/Low Pass Crossovers: A built-in High-Pass/Low-Pass crossover is adjustable from 40Hz to 400Hz and allows the output to be filtered for optimum use with a subwoofer or mid/high-range speakers. The crossover can also be set to FULL for a full-range audio signal.
Bass Boost: The Bass Boost feature provides up to 12dB of boost to bass frequencies (@ 85Hz), allowing even more control over your preferred sound.
Low & High Level Inputs: The AQ-AD300.2-MICRO provides either low-level (RCA) or high-level (speaker) input connections. The high-level inputs provide auto turn-on.
Note: Using the high-level signal inputs requires the removal of the control panel cover and will significantly reduce the amplifiers ingress performance for both water and dust (no longer waterproof).
Speaker Outputs: The AQ-AD300.2-MICRO includes a wiring harness which plugs into the attached harness on the amplifier. On the other end of the harness are four 16AWG speaker leads terminated with bullet-connectors to connect your speakers.
Power/Remote/Ground: The amplifier features an attached 12AWG Power (red) 16AWG Remote (blue), and 12AWG Ground (black) wire. The Power and Ground are terminated with bare wire, while the Remote wire is terminated with a bullet-connector. The Power wire also has an in-line fuse holder with a 30A fuse installed.
Overload Protection: The AQ-AD300.2-MICRO utilizes overload protection to protect the amplifier, your speakers, and your motorcycle.
Ultra Series Harley Speakers: The Aquatic AV HS111 are high-performance waterproof Harley Davidson motorcycle speakers. They come complete with black UV grills, mounting rings, and mounting hardware for easy installation into your Harley-Davidson Motorcycle.
Note: 1998-2013 models require installation of the included grill & mounting ring. 2014+ models do not require the grill or mounting ring.
Weather Resistant: The speakers are made weather resistant by the rubber front isolation spider, connecting the tweeter housing and woofer cone assembly, along with the rubber surround. They are water and UV resistant.
Two-Way Design: The Quatic AV HS111 features a 1" silk dome tweeter, a complex fiber cone in an aluminum basket, and an external crossover to create a great sounding speaker for your motorcycle. The speakers have a frequency response of 60Hz to 20kHz, and are 4-ohm rated.
Adjustable Tweeter: You can adjust and rotate the 1" silk tweeter to direct the sound exactly where you need it for your Harley Davidson motorcycle.
High Power Handling: Rated at 360W max power output (180W RMS) per pair, these speakers deliver outstanding audio quality and volume even when traveling down the interstate at higher speeds. The speakers have a sensitivity rating of 87dB.
External Crossovers: Two external 2nd order crossovers (12 dB/octave slope) are included. Attached to the crossover is two 6" input wires (positive/negative) and two 12" output wires (positive/negative). The crossovers can be mounted using the 3M tape on the bottom of crossover modules or using the integrated mounting tabs and included screws. Each crossover measures 4" (w) x 1.1875" (h) x 1.75" (d).
