    It has been some days looking for info to get a sound system for my 2007 Heritage. As I don't want to add anything under my seat or anywhere, I opted for ampli built-in speakers. Still considering between Uniq cycles, Hogtunes, Sound of chrome from kuryakyn, ... So many options, similar prices. But the things have gone even worse: the MoCo has launched (well, only available in Sept 2010) the Boom Audio system (Ref 76262-08). Well, strictly, it has the amplifier outside from the speakers, but it seems so tiny and easy to fit the frame down tubes. My doubts grow. Even HD does not declare the specifications of the system.

    What should I do?

    Cyles Sounds are great. Amp is easy to mount and speakers are on the handlebars pointing right at you. A friend bought a system and I couldn't resist. It is run by my IPod. Very happy with it.

    Do you have a detachable windshield? My local Harley Dealer has a nice looking audio system that attaches to a softail detachable windshield. Check out TwistedAudio3Kings.com. The waterproof AM/FM radio sounds great and also comes with Weatherband and Weather Alert. A windshield lock is also available.

    I just put on the cycle sound unit and it is great. They have units for your handle bars

    Fairingless sound system like Cycle Sounds is pretty standard fare...but bulky and requires POWER to get past windblast noise at speed.

    An alternative would be as below...

    If you use earphones/buds, simple I pod or MP-3 player w/ RAM mount or similar on bar is clean...Blue Tooth wireless setup would be virtually invisible on the bike.

    I wouldnt consider the cycle sound system bulky. It comes with a small amp to power it up and I have to turn the system down many times even at highway speeds

    I'm a member of the tons of speakers and watts crew with my Ultra Limited, but I've heard these in person and I was pretty impressed. Very nicely done product.

    Handle Bar System

    Cycle sounds, HogTunes, Twisted systems, ... No opinions on Kuryakyn, Uniq Cycles or, particular Boom Audio from MoCo? I think I will wait for the inputs on the latter when it becomes available

    I have a Uniq cycles system with a Jensen radio on other bike, with the wind shield it is fine, but my wife on the back can not hear it very well
