    This past weekend went riding with a guy who has tunes and decided to take the plunge. Here’s what my needs are and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    1.) Have Sirius radio with removable unit in car.
    2.) Want to use my IPOD.

    I’ve been looking at the box from Ronsmotorcycleradiosystems wanted to put an aftermarket head unit and speakers that will enable me to use the above two units. Does anyone have any suggestions on a head unit and speakers that give enough punch and still have good sound quality? Also, are there any web-sites that can show the various wiring configurations? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Try J&M Deluxe Self Amplified Handlebar Mounted Speakers. Welcome to JM Corporation
    I had a set on my previous bike and they're great. Very well work the money. IMHO

    Just went to a bike shop and was told that the amplified speakers will not be heard effectively over 60 MPH. Is this true? Just want to hear music. Would love to setup my Sirius with Bluetooth headset or plugs. Do they make something like that?

    Whether you have a full face helmet or 3/4 or 1/2 will have a bigger impact from what I have personally noticed. If you have a real loud exhaust that will be an issue too. The J&M unit that was mentioned is seriously loud when you turn it up. Talk to J&M.
