I ordered and installed the rear Speaker kit from Wingstuff.com. The installation was very easy and streight forward. However, after I installed everything and turned on the bike, the volume from the rear speakers is very low compared to the front. I seems as though the impedence of the new sperakers is higher than the front causing less volume from the rear. I need to position the fader control to the most clockwise position to get the volume close to equal. The control should be closer to center I would think.



has anyone installed this kit and had the same problem? What was the solution? Do I need to replace the front speakers with a new set? Could the new speakers be 4 or 8 ohms and the front be 3 ohm?



Thanks



Dave

If your fader is anything like mine, that is your problem. I did a report on another thread about a new fader I installed.

I installed rear speakers on my bike and had the same problem with hardly enough sound coming from them. I bought a 100 watt amp off of ebay for 18 dollars and wired it to the rear speakers only and the bike sounds like a rock concert now even at 80+ mph It actually thumps the ground when I am at red lights. I had someone 2 days ago asking me to please turn it down at a red light. Now im trying to figure out how to wire in a speed sensor to turn the volume down as I slow. So I Don't piss anyone off when I come to a stop.
