2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my 2015 Road Glide. Plug-and-play fit made installation a breeze when combined with the video Rockford Fosgate provides. Very happy to have this all put together. I'm driving a pair of Alpine R-S65 6.5" speakers on the fairing and JBL GTO-938 6x9s on the saddlebag lids. No problem hearing my music at highway speeds. Tremendous improvement over baseline HD's BOOM Audio that came with the bike.

Pros: Custom fit works seamlessly Great video to help you with install

Cons: None.

Works great but instructions are worthless

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked perfectly to mount the amp. Instructions are useless, but the YouTube videos I found made up for it. Rockford Fosgate install videos

Pros: Easy to install. Made to fit and is pretty much plug and play.

Cons: Instructions are useless. Had to find video online. Thankfully RF put one on YouTube.

Mace from Scottsdale, AZ on 2/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this kit in my 2016 Road Glide Special with Kicker PXA200.2 amp and PS6.5" speakers. I modified this kit to fit my application. I did NOT use the RF amp or speakers, so there was a learning curve here. A Crutchfield tech was super-helpful. Even after I explained what I was doing, they still helped me figure out if the Kicker Amp would mount to the RF baseplate and mounting brackets. They did. Super easy! I am not a mechanic nor am a an Audio Shop Manager or anything like that. I just love music when I ride. The entire install too about 1 hour once I figured out what wires to cut and where. I Did Not Cut Or Splice Any Wires On The Bike! Everything Was Plug And Play On The Motorcycle Side! The only thing I had to cut was the input and output adapter wires-- and that was just a personal choice really. The kits comes with adapter wires and plugs one end has the metal speaker connection tabs that you slide over the speaker connectors and the other end has the HD plug. Since my speakers were already installed, I cut the metal piece off the end and soldered that end into the plug on the amp-- did this for both the input and out plugs. Then it was simply a matter of plugging them in to the stock Harley plugs-- and it was snap...literally.

Pros: Very easy to use, clear labeling on the wires/packaging. Works with other amps, rear speaker wire kit for when I add rear speakers down the road.

Cons: A bit pricy and lots of parts that I didn't use.

Amp Compatibility: The RFKHD is compatible with the following Rockford Fosgate Punch PBR and Power Compact Chassis amplifiers: PBR300X2, PBR300X4, T400X4ad, T400x2ad, TM400X2ad, and TM400X4ad.

Motorcycle Compatibility: The RFKHD contains a mounting plate, heatsink, and wiring kit for installing the above listed amplifiers onto select 1998 and later Harley-Davidson Street Glide and Road Glide models; specially designed brackets are included for 1998-2013 Street Glide, 1998-2013 Road Glide, 2014 and later Street Glide, and 2015 and later Road Glide models. These brackets have pre-drilled holes that allow you to bolt them to the chassis using the OEM mounting holes. The included wire harnesses are pre-loomed and terminated to use the OEM connectors.

Wiring: The cables included in the RFKHD use 100% Pure Crystal-Oxygen Free Copper (PC-OFC), and meet or exceed AWG (American Wire Gauge) requirements. The wires are terminated with the appropriate hardware. The wiring kit includes the following wires and harnesses:
