    I have a 2012 eg classic with two hogtunes speakers in the dash with factory hk receiver.Is it possible to power a tweeter pod with the unused rear channel outputs on the amp? Has anyone done this or is it common practice? I think the tweeter pods are rated to handle 50 watts,the stock harmon cardon only puts out 20 watts. I think i should be safe.

    I have a tweeter pod on the way. From the instructions I've read on the H.T. tech zone: tweeter pods are supplied with correct harness, and hook into the front speaker system, no amp required (but amp will sound better). Also, from what I gathered from the tech zone, the leads for the back speakers on a Classisc are not active. The radio must be "flashed" by the dealer to bring those leads to life and bring the fader function up on display.
    I'm not real bright on audio stuff, so I may be wrong.
